    Some feel the Lady, newly risen from centuries in thrall, stands between humankind and evil. Some feel she is evil itself. The hardbitten men of the Black Company take their pay and do what they must, burying their doubts with their dead.

    Until the prophesy: The White Rose has been reborn, somewhere, to embody good once more.

    There must be a way for the Black Company to find her...

    Adrift in a world torn by sorcery gone wild, the Company is the last remnant of a once-great mercenary army. Led by Croaker, former physician and primary chronicler, they must search the world for the last ray of hope--the White Rose.

    The Black Company is a series I have read through twice, but it's been a very long time since my last read-through.

    I would deem the series dark fantasy - not generally my genre. The books are rich with detail, and suck you in immediately. They are definitely rough and gritty, but fascinating. I enjoy the first two series the most, and they're the most likely for me to re-read. The latter books are just too hard (for me) to handle more than the two times I've read them. Maybe in another 10 years or so Silly face

    I definitely recommend giving at least the first book a try Two thumbs up
