    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....

    If you could sum up The Black Company in three words, what would they be?

    wizards! battles! history!


    What other book might you compare The Black Company to and why?

    i have read none like it yet


    Which scene was your favorite?

    where Oneeye and Goblin were 'dueling'


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    an epic tale of the greatest mercenaries the world has ever seen.


    Any additional comments?

    I had to read this book twice as the writing style is completely different than what I am used to (George RR Martin, and Terry Goodkind). After the second read, I want to be enlisted in The Black Company now.

    On the beautiful planet Pern, colonized for centuries, Land Holders and Craftsmen have traditionally tithed food and supplies to the dragonweyrs to which they are bound. In times past, the mighty telepathic dragons and their riders were the only protection from the dreaded, life-threatening Thread. Now those times may be returning....

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book was very hard to follow... direction and editing were terrible.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    something that doesnt sound like it was recorded in the 60's on failing analog equipment.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Dick Hill is one of the best narrators in the world... but the direction and editing of this book is what ruined it. I do not blame Mr Hill at all for this atrocity. It was extremely difficult to follow and seemed like it was just all jammed together. The quality is terrible too... I am used to books like Rhyria Revelations ... so this book was just a bad experience all the way around. I even restarted this book like 3 times in hopes to be able to grasp it, but that never happened, and finally, the book just ended...


    What character would you cut from Dragonflight?

    I dont know how to answer this one.... the story was so hard to follow, I am not sure who was who and who was doing what...


    Any additional comments?

    This book needs to be completely redone.
