Yes another Glen Cook thread, sorry. I've read all four books and really liked them. They aren't as good as his BC books but still very fun if you're into the Crusade history during the 13th century. I'm huge into the Crusades (I have the Crusader cross tattooed on my arm.) and was super excited to read fantasy loosely based off it. I know Judith Tarr also wrote Crusader fantasy but after reading some of her interviews on Islam and the Crusades I was worried she went down the politically correct history revisionism route instead of being reasonably accurate to the source. Thankfully Cook's story takes place entirely in a fantasy/different world so his deviations from history won't bother me at all. I'm huge into history and it drives me crazy when authors screw with things in historical fiction/fantasy in a way that doesn't resemble real history at all. The series is hard to follow because it has no maps, glossary, etc. Thankfully I found a forum thread online that helped sort things out. Beware this thread contains very minor spoilers. https://www.sffchronicles.com/threads/534043/ So far this series seems far more similar to Dread Empire than Black Company. Anyone else give this series a shot? Thoughts?
