The soldiers of the Black Company don’t ask questions, they get paid. But being “The Lady’s favored” is attracting the wrong kind of attention and has put a target on their backs, and the Company’s historian, Croaker, has the biggest target of all. The one person who was taken into the lady’s tower and returned unchanged has earned the special interest of the court of sorcerers known as "The Ten Who Were Taken". Now, he and the company are being asked to seek the aid of their newest member, Mischievous Rain, to break a rebel army.

I'm just here to piss and moan about the narrator. Ostensibly the reason Marc was not casted for this project was because of the change in publishing- Audible V. Macmillan. The new narrator gives the story a feeling of Black Company fanfiction. I started following the Black Company after book three of the Malazan series when they replaced Ralph Lister with Michael Paige and this juxtaposition is just as jarring. Paige is phenomenal in the Lies of Locke Lamora, as I'm sure Troxell is in other series, but this ain't it chief.
