  • The Black Company contains a lot of sad moments with the sheer number of characters that die there. One of the most touching scenes comes at the beginning of the 5th book. The company, reduced to small group of cynical veterans prepares an ambush for a group of bandits. The team mages prepare an illusion to make the enemy think they are hopelessly outnumbered. As it turns out they shape it using their memories, conjuring the images of all their fallen comrades until the company stands several hundred strong, returned, for a brief moment, to its past glory.
