    Finished Dreams of Steel (aka Black Company 5) couple minutes ago. Unlike Shadow Games, which felt a little stale to me, this was a great entry in the series. Lady is a fun POV-narrator both because it's refreshing to get someone else's introspection and because there's so much going on with her. Whereas Croaker drifts between morose to melancholic all the time, Lady goes through a phase of mourning, then she's a cold-blooded badass, she doubts herself, experiences genuine moments of levity - she's an all around great character. Which makes it all the more engaging when things go her way (or don't). Knowing how she feels and what's going on on her side of things also makes the brief chapters from Croaker's perspective more intriguing. It's hard for me to find anything to complain about, really. I mean, if anything, it doesn't feel much like a Black Company story, inasmuch as it isn't really about the Company. But as a story about some Black Company characters this one is perfectly enjoyable.
    On to Bleak Seasons...

    This series is amazing. Just under 4 hours left on the first book.

    Still a lot of awesomeness ahead of you :)

    Finished City of Stairs. Liked it but didn't love it. Would put it squarely in the middle of the RJB pack.

    My thoughts exactly. City of Blades is a tad better imo, and all in all the series consistently maintains the same level of good-ish entertainment.

    Finished Black Company 4 aka Shadow Games yesterday. Subpar entry by comparison. I liked the characters but many of the new additions to the cast feel rather one note. Plus I hated
    . The story is nothing to write home about. No flying whales and mantas with lasers, no ancient evil demigod, no man-eating castles...Just a long-ish roadtrip with the Black Company with the occasional skirmish that works out for the main characters until it doesn't.
    Book 5 apparently focuses on the Lady's POV which I feel may be a welcome breath of fresh air.
  5. In Topic: i was thinking about starting podcast, any advices?
