Introducing Geralt the Witcher - revered and hated - who holds the line against the monsters plaguing humanity in the best-selling series that inspired the Witcher video games and a major Netflix show.

Geralt the Witcher has fought monsters and demons across the land, but even he may not be prepared for what is happening to his world. The kings and armies are manoeuvring for position, each fearing invasion from across the river, each fearing their neighbours more. Intrigue, dissent and rebellion are on all sides.

The Elves and other non-humans are still suffering under decades of repression, and growing numbers join the commando units hidden deep in the forest, striking at will and then dissolving into the trees. The Magicians are fighting amongst themselves, some in the pay of the kings, some sympathetic to the elves.

And against this backdrop of fear and contempt Geralt and his lover Yennefer must protect Ciri, orphaned heir and sought by all sides. For the prophecy rests on her, and whether she lives or dies she has the power to save the world - or perhaps end it.

Characters come alive in the dirty and unfair world of the Witcher with the readers voice.

The reader once again performs marvelously; giving each character not only a speech pattern but fitting accents and dialects to them.

The story is befitting of the Witcher universe but appears somewhat too nice in this part of the series.
The book is very obviously written as a part of a bigger series and could have done with a finish that is not as tv-series like as it is.

Overall all my criticism is on a high level and only existent at all due to my high expectations.

If you like fantasy and characters that are not simply good or evil you will like the Witcher.
