    This is where this series really came through for me. The other books were very much building up to this, and they suffered for it, while this one -- for me at least -- was my favourite. I love the ending especially -- shades of grey all the way, and people actually dying, both things ...

    4.0 stars. Good ending to a superb fantasy trilogy. The Black Company series is one of the most entertaining fantasy series out there. I loved the first two installments, The Black Company and Shadows Linger and thought they set the bar very high for this third installment. Given the e...

    So with this third installement we round up some loose characters and we have a really new direction for the fourth volume. The stakes are much higher this time, like really high, and all the loved characters are back. But the writer still hase some Aces in his sleeves and he did...

    4.5 Stars An excellent ending to this trilogy. The Lady is finalizing her end game. The Black Company & the White Rose are waiting it out on the Plain of Fear, planning their own strike. Unfortunately, there is that saying about the best laid plans? The Dominator is sti...

    I will probably be roundly booed for saying this, but I liken this series to the Gaunt's Ghosts series by Dan Abnett. In both you follow a unique and roundly abused group of soldiers within a larger unit. in both, they are the last of their kind, and though they might disagree with eac...

    ? Buddy reread with the clueless new mercenary recruits Elena and Maria over at BB&B. Under the wicked supervision of our Ever-Stalking Black Company Overlord (ESBCO?), of course ? Previous rating: 5 stars. New rating: 12 stars. Obviously. ? And the moral of this re...

    What can I say? This was surprisingly fast and enjoyable read! Third book in series, The White Rose was a culmination for all the secrets and mysteries, as well as for the paths chosen by our protagonists in earlier books. Cook also surprised me with some fresh ideas in this one, altho...

    This was the conclusion to the first Black Company trilogy and concluded the battle for power between The White Rose, The Lady, and The Dominator. I was very pleased by how it all played out. The story was exciting and packed full of twists and turns. I was surprised but very happy wit...

    A fitting end to an enjoyable trilogy. This book, honestly, was the weakest of the three in my opinion. It lacked some of the "oomph" that the first two had, some of the grittiness and unique circumstances. It did, however, make up for it with many more fantastical elements, magic, and...

    The remaining part of the Black Company is stuck in a very weird place. Sufficient to say the local talking stones keep bugging Croaker with mysterious messages walking trees and flying whales look practical The remaining part of the Black Company is stuck in a very weird ...

    I will give five stars if for nothing then for maturity in its writing. Everything finally settled with the last book. Personally I found it the best in the trilogy and very satisfying read. The story lead us to final battle between the Lady, White Rose and Dominator and also was writ...

    That was an incredible ending! Of course for now! :-D After a long time, an author could succeed to mislead me about the ending! Also it gave me a shock in the middle of the book... honestly i really believed Mr Cook don't mislead his readers but he made a situation (or something li...

    The first half was quite slow, but after the three separate storylines converged, the twists just kept coming and coming. The lesser evil triumphs, but there is no HEA anywhere in sight. Most amazing place: the Plain of Fear Biggest surprise(s): the alliance. And the end of it... ...

    The ending to this trilogy was AMAZING!!! I the beginning I really wasn?t sure what to think of this series. It started being told in a way that was pretty different. However now that I?ve finished the first trilogy in the series I?m amazed at how much I?ve enjoyed it and ho...

    Buddy read with the seasoned mercenaries and a few new recruits of BB&B. If I could rate this higher than 5 stars I would. 5 measly stars just can't do TWR (or the Black Company as a whole) justice. A great many things have been said by people more eloquent than me about thi...

    I loved this third installment in the Black Company series. It's ironic how I often find myself speechless when trying to write glowing reviews! But here go a few thoughts: This book brings together a few threads from both previous stories, and makes sparks when it smashes them t...

    A brilliant finale for the first part of the Black Company story known as the The Books of the North. The first half of the book was more about the things that happened in the past and the writer tried to give more background information about the story and the characters but the 2n...

    I had a hard start with the third part of this series - it needed 50 pages to get into the story. This seems to be a recurring problem with this series. I didn't think about lemming this book, but abandoning the series, because the first three books seem to be a mini-series within the ...

    This book is last in the series of Chronicles of black company and cook has done a good job wrapping up the story which began in the book one.The style followed by cook is different thought all the three books but he basically shines in this book where he handles the story through pov ...

    The best book in the series. A fine tale of the Black Company reduced to guerilla warfare in desolate places. Also, the narrative of this book, with three stories from three different periods of time, was amazingly well done. It did not end as I had hoped, or even as I had expected, bu...

    This has been a very enjoyable series to this point and I encourage you to read it. I've decided that this review will cover both The White Rose and Shadows Linger because they seem to have been written in the same style and feel a bit distinguished from the first book. In fact, I went...

    Great ending to the first trilogy of the black company series. The writing style is still a bit tough for me to read but this was the best out of the 3 books. Great action scenes and some interesting twists with an ending promising more to come. Ill give it 4 stars. One star i took awa...

    Wow! This is, so far, definitely the best fantasy series I have ever read. This 3rd book starts somewhat slow compared to the other ones and off the previous line, then it earns a rather protracted momentum; but it does, and in the last third it becomes amazingly good, with jaw-droppin...
