    If you haven’t started the Chronicles of the Black Company yet (I noticed you said you have been meaning to start the series), these are actually books #7-8 and #9-10 (they each contain 2). I’ve only read the first book, but feel pretty solid that you should start at the beginning with this series. Maybe you already have the other books lined up or realized that, but wanted to mention it just in case 🙂 Enjoy!
