SF: The Black Company

During this summer, I read the three first books of Glen Cooks’s “Chronicles of the Black Company”.

Tne books tell the story of a free company of mercenaries. In fact, the narrator is the doctor of this company. Of course, the black company is hired by evil forces. Once a contract accepted, the honor of the Company requires to obey. Although the members of the company are not people you’d like to meet, they are not inherently bad. This generates some problems. And there is evil, and even more evil. Thus, is it not better to fight with evil to stop more evil?

A small regret for the 3rd book. There are some obvious tricks (very Hollywood movie style) that you anticipate too easily.

Good chronicles for light summer reading.
