“With the Black Company series Glen Cook single-handedly changed the face of fantasy--something a lot of people didn't notice and maybe still don't. He brought the story down to a human level, dispensing with the cliché archetypes of princes, kings, and evil sorcerers. Reading his stuff was like reading Vietnam War fiction on peyote.” ―Steven Erikson, author of Gardens of the Moon

Not a typical evil is evil and good is good epic, human failings are real, and integrating that makes the characters that much more realistic and relatable.
Conflict is not only on the battle fields,the subtle conflict in the hearts of the main characters as they struggle to understand what is truly right keeps them fresh and unpredictable in the long run. The lack of a stylish "beautiful" fantasy world gives the tale it's gritty reality but paints a world with no less depth than other popular fantasy works. The mercenary outlook and toned down "Magical" element give the story a human feel that latches on and makes it hard to put this book down. Should be part of any action/military/fantasy readers collection!
Galadriel could have been talking about The Lady when she says to Frodo (In the book version):
In place of the Dark Lord you will set up a Queen. And I shall not be dark, but beautiful and terrible as the Morning and the Night! Fair as the Sea and the Sun and the Snow upon the Mountain! Dreadful as the Storm and the Lightning! Stronger than the foundations of the earth. All shall love me and despair!”
I loved The Lady and did not despair, but there are times when The Lady will break your heart.
