I picked up Soldiers Live mostly to sooth my completionist tendencies - I'm not the biggest fan of The Black Company. And Soldiers Live didn't surprise. It is long, tedious, depressing, and poorly plotted. However, it gets an extra star for the ending, which was a) actually a surprise and b) quite a satisfying ending to the long-dragged-out chronicle of Croaker. I am content to believe this is the end of the series, whatever Wikipedia claims, because while Cook could no doubt continue dragging the company around on further adventures, all the characters I care about are dead or retired, and I didn't care about them all that much in the first place. So I am done.
