In the Company of Ogres

In the Company of Ogres

A. Lee Martinez

An uproarious new novel within the culture of Robert Asprin and Terry Pratchett!

For a person who is immortal, by no means useless Ned manages to die with alarming frequency--he simply has the irritating behavior of emerging from the grave. yet this soldier could be larger useless than face his most recent assignment.

Ogre corporation is the legion's dumping ground--a motley, undisciplined staff of monsters whose leaders are inclined to die below a bit questionable situations. that is the place Ned's relatively precise skills are available. As Ogre Company's newly appointed commander, Ned unearths himself answerable for such effective examples of army prowess as a moonstruck Amazon, a truly giant (and very well mannered) two-headed ogre, a seductively scaly siren, a blind oracle who can listen (and scent) the longer term, a suicidal goblin daredevil pilot, a strolling tree with a chip on its shoulder, and a suspiciously goblinesque orc.
Ned has merely six months to whip the Ogre corporation into form or face a good extra hideous task, yet that isn't the worst of his difficulties. simply because now that Ned has discovered why he retains arriving from lifeless, he has to do every thing he can to stick alive. . . .

In the corporate of Ogres does for delusion, what A. Lee Martinez's prior novel, Gil's All Fright Diner, did for horror--and elves and goblins may possibly by no means be the same!
