The Black Company by Glen Cook
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I can totally see how this book must have had an influence on Game of Thrones. It is gritty as all hell and the narrative is quite exciting. The story flips the usual black and white fantasy narrative on its head, focusing on a mercenary company and the various patrons who employ them. Without giving anything away, its is interesting when good people are placed in bad positions which question their conscience and also how they justify it in their own minds.
also magic and battles and shit...
