Please note: this review will be updated as I read more stories from the anthology.
So as I mentioned this is an anthology of short fantasy stories. The collection consists of the following:Bone Eaters
by Glen Cook
The tale takes part between the second and the third books of the main series. A whole lot of familiar faces are back, including Darling, Lieutenant, Elmo, Silent, Otto, Hagop, Goblin, and One-Eye. A group of highway robbers was stupid enough to try robbing some scouts from The Black Company. The surviving robbers were taken prisoners; it turned out they are interesting people - to put it mildly. Let us just say The Company got even into bigger troubles than before.
This was the
reason I got my hands on this anthology. People familiar with my reviews know I love the series. This was a decent read. It is nice to be back with the old gang which for ones had too many wizards with the more timid of them being Goblin and One-Eye.
This should tell how big trouble the Company was in this time. I love Croaker's conclusion in the end of the tale. 4 stars
is the rating.
So the final rating for now is 4 stars
which I will update later with review of more stories.
