Not really a review, just a note to self.
I dropped the series somewhere along this book. It's not that I didn't like it. I loved the writing since book one all the way up till now. However, things have slowly become less interesting as I keep reading - and maybe it's just that I lost the initial interest, but I can't be bothered to pick this series up again right now. I am left with the annoying mystery of the true history of the Black Company, but the trouble of reading through pages on characters I'm not entirely devoted to (i.e. not Croaker or Lady) gives me great pause. Maybe I'll pick it up again because it is a series worth reading. But just not right now.
