For someone whos immortal, Never Dead Ned manages to die with alarming frequencyhe just has the annoying habit of rising from the grave. But this soldier might truly be better dead than face his latest assignment.
Ogre Company is the legions dumping grounda motley, undisciplined group of monsters whose leaders tend to die under somewhat questionable circumstances. Thats where Neds rather unique talents come in. As Ogre Companys newly appointed commander, Ned finds himself in charge of such fine examples of military prowess as a moonstruck Amazon, a very big (and very polite) two-headed ogre, a seductively scaly siren, a blind oracle who can hear (and smell) the future, a suicidal goblin daredevil pilot, a walking tree with a chip on its shoulder, and a suspiciously goblinesque orc.
Ned has only six months to whip Ogre Company into shape or face an even more hideous assignmentbut thats not the worst of his problems. Because now that Ned has found out why he keeps returning from the dead, he has to do everything he can to stay alive…
In the Company of Ogres does for fantasy what A. Lee Martinezs bestselling novel, Gils All Fright Diner, did for horror and elves and goblins may never be the same!
