Publisher's Summary

The third book in a rollicking fantasy series where the grit of grimdark meets a police procedural, and it's up to two watchmen to protect the streets of one of fantasy's most dangerous cities.

Yenara is a sprawling, dirty city. Filled to bursting with heroes questing, mages testing out spells, thieves around every corner, elves judging everyone, dwarves hating everyone, orcs fighting everyone, and humans being typical humans. Enter Rem and Torval: one a human, the other a dwarf, and both working as Watchwardens.

Now, they must escort a notorious thief through a dangerous forest to the nearby city from where the thief escaped. But the thief's companions are waiting, and the soldiers Rem and Torval travel with might not be so honorable.

Love this series!

This series is just fantastic. It’s like a cop drama set in a fantasy world and it does an amazing job. There’s always character development, the plot always moves along at a speed I like, and the dialog between the characters feels natural. I actually get a little sad when I finish a book because I want the next one to be out already…but then I relisten to it a couple times. Also, the combination of the good writing and I amazing narrator really make this series come to life.

A great story outside the city walls

This book continues the story of Rem and Torval as they do their best to patrol the Fifth Ward. Unlike the first two books however, Good Company takes you outside the city walls and gives you a look at the rest of the world. Admittedly most of this takes place in a forest but it is still a good world building opportunity. Dale Lucas does a great job keeping you engaged with the story, the characters are very well written and complex in their own ways. Simon Vance, of course, does another great job narrating and giving the story an extra dimension to enjoy.

enjoy listen

I enjoy this series, but this book felt like it was more a few chapters from a bigger story stretched out. it's still an enjoyable listen if you enjoyed the other two books. the narration remains top notch.

I shall be very sorry to leave the world of the Fifth Ward. Thoroughly enjoyed this last instalment and I hope for more.
