About this title

Synopsis:

For years, Glen Cook's Black Company series has built a major audience among fantasy fans. Beginning as paperback originals in the 1980s, continuing in hardcover in the 1990s, this epic of warfare between sorcerers and demigods, all told from the "worm's-eye" view of the soldiers and functionaries who fight for them, has riveted a generation of readers. If the Joseph Heller of Catch-22 were to tell the story of The Lord of the Rings, it might read like the Black Company books. There is nothing else in fantasy like them.Now Cook brings the latest cycle of the epic to a major climax, as the survivors of the disaster at the end of She Is the Darkness regroup in Taglios. Determined to free their fellow warriors held in stasis beneath the glittering plain, they journey there under terrible conditions, arriving just in time for a magical conflagaration in which the bones of the world will be revealed, the history of the Company unveiled, and new worlds gained and lost -- all at a terrible price.

From the Back Cover:

Regrouping in Taglios, the surviving members of the Black Company are determined to free their fellow warriors held in stasis beneath the glittering plain. Journeying there under terrible conditions, they arrive just in time for a magical conflagration in which the bones of the world will be revealed, the history of the Company unveiled, and new worlds gained and lost . . . all at a terrible price.

Wry, tough-minded, brilliantly imagined, and told with enormous flair, Water Sleeps is Glen Cook at the top of his game.
