...embedded in the trunk of the scion of the godtree, it contains the essence of the maddest of the Ten Who Were Taken...The Dominator. Defeated by the Lady and cast from this world, all that was left of him was a foul trace of lingering evil. But the graveyard that was once the Barrowland contains more secrets than dead. All who would possess the power of the Dominator are drawn to the spike. A foolhardy band of thieves is the first to reach it, and a rapacious and malign spirit is unleashed on an unwary world. The forces gather, sides are drawn, and mortal men can only die as the Dark Lords battle for domination.… (mer)

I actually really liked this. I can see why the first four books are bunched together as a quadrilogy; this book ended the whole arc pretty well, despite some big characters from previous not present. Very fun, and a good pov in my opinion too. ( )

I was hesitant about starting this book because it lacked Croaker and Lady, and contained my least favourite characters, Darling and Silent. However I was engrossed within the plot and had gorwn fond of other characters long before the White Rose gang made it's appearance. Smeds, Old Man Fish, Case, and Toadkiller Dog was all enjoyable characters to read about, and I found myself wishing there was a way they could all win by the end. The only criticism I have of the book is the ending. It seemed abrupt and a pit too pat, like Cook wanted to make sure he could never go back to the characters. It wasn't bad, just a let down after such a fabulous book. ( )

I was turned off by the first couple chapters because I thought this was going to end up a pointless detour from the main thread of the story and I wanted to see what Croaker & Lady were going to do about the big off-screen dramatic moment at the end of Dreams of Steel. But in the end it was a fun detour from the main thread of the story. And I think most of my disappointment has to do with the fact that I read it in the Books of the South collection, which has it as #6 in the series, when it looks like it was published 4th.

So yeah, I still like the characters. Still want to know where this is all going. ( )

Title: The Silver Spike Series: The Chronicles of the Black Company Author: Glen Cook Rating: of 5 Battle Axes Genre: SFF Pages: 318 Format: Kindle Synopsis: Since the Dominator's essence was put into a silver spike and embedded into a young tree godling, the Lady is without her power and the White Rose is now just a girl, things should be just fine, right? Ha. A bunch of amateur criminals steal the spike and set off a chain of events that lead to the utter destruction of one of the Taken, the Limper, and a grand adventure. My Thoughts: This was a FUN read. Bumbling low level criminals get in way over their heads, a Taken just goes nuts and cuts a huge swathe of destruction through the continent and the White Rose leads one final mission for the rebellion. It was everything I wanted in a fantasy book. There were no real good guys, but since this was a Black Company book, I wasn't expecting there to be any. Just a bunch of neerdowells mixed in with some really powerful guys. And the White Rose hooking up with a potato farmer turned soldier and returning to potato farming at the end? It made me laugh and yet it was the perfect ending for her. She needs a lifetime of the mundane to make up for all that came before. The journalistic approach of the previous books was kept for this one as well. I like that. " ( )

A stand alone that wraps up the characters who do not continue into the rest of the Black company series after the climactic ending in The White Rose. Not quite as well done as the others in the series, the Limper seems way to powerful in this story as opposed to his role in the earlier novels. Still, not a bad book and does tie up the loose ends.

This here journal is Raven's idea but I got me a feeling he won't be so proud of it if he ever gets to reading it because most of the time I'm going to tell the truth.
