She Is the Darkness - Glen Cook

Smoke surveillance.

There is a new company annalist as Croaker and the Lady now lead. He has a unique advantage in basically being able to do psychic remote viewing because of the abilities of a comatose sorcerer they have as a prisoner.

Handy as a storytelling and spying device for the military. Again, things are not simple for the Black Company because their employers aren't to be trusted.

Taking Croaker out of the main narrative role may not be to everybody's taste, or the story difference, but the style and quality is still there enough to just scrape in for a 4, for me. 3.75 if you like.

4 out of 5
