I've been wanting to give these books a go, but have been uncertain. Has anyone read them, are they any good?

I read The Annals of the Black Company years ago (OMG it's been 23 years! [Digs out walker to go to bookshelf to check for book]).  This was a sci-fi book club edition of three novels from The Books of the North.  I did like them, enough to read them several times, and would probably read them again.  Give them a go.  I do remember the first one being a slow-starter, but of course, once I started it, I had to read more.
