Mercenary soldiers in the service of the Lady, the Black Company stands against the rebels of the White Rose. They are tough men, proud of honoring their contracts. The Lady is evil, but so, too, are those who falsely profess to follow the White Rose, reincarnation of a centuries-dead heroine. Yet now some of the Company have discovered that the mute girl they rescued and sheltered is truly the White Rose reborn. Now there may be a path to the light, even for such as they. If they can survive it.

Review:

"Timely and timeless The author of the Black Company series brings a stark realism to his tales of imaginary lands." --"Library Journal" (starred review) on "The Tyranny of the Night""Complex and compelling It is a powerful fantasy, combining a fast-moving plot with an introduction into this world of patriarchal schism, greedy churchmen and nobles, and cynical soldiers bent on survival." --"VOYA "on "The Tyranny of the Night ""The thing about Glen Cook is that with "The Black Company "he singlehandedly changed the face of fantasy--something a lot of people didn't notice and maybe still don't.
