Publisher's Summary

The Witcher returns in this action-packed sequel to Baptism of Fire in the New York Times best-selling series that inspired The Witcher video games.

The world has fallen into war. Ciri, the child of prophecy, has vanished. Hunted by friends and foes alike, she has taken on the guise of a petty bandit and lives free for the first time in her life.

But the net around her is closing. Geralt, the Witcher, has assembled a group of allies determined to rescue her. Both sides of the war have sent brutal mercenaries to hunt her down. Her crimes have made her famous.

There is only one place left to run. The tower of swallows is waiting….

    "Expectations!"

    A bouncy timeline and a cottage in the swamp where no one dares travel. This one had me yawning a bit, no monsterous action and the capture plot with the bounty hunter was lame. Hope the next one's better because I have loved the series thus far!

    "Sapkowski does it again"

    Another wonderful entry in this fantastic and criminally underrated fantasy epic. I'm reminded again that Peter Kenney is one of the best (and certainly the most versatile) narrators I've ever heard.

    "Awesome! "

    Don't listen to all the reviews that had complaining and whining, because this book was everything it was supposed to be and honestly yes there wasn't tons of action but if that's all your looking for then go play the game and stop complaining! But if your a true fan of The Witcher series and want light shined on all those unanswered questions from the game series and if your looking for the complete story then this will be for you!

    "Scattered POV but great stories"

    The beginning opens great but the story jumps from multiple perspectives of similar events that don't have much separation between pov's. So pay attention as it gets confusing at times on whose perspective I am reading through. Not a lot of Geralt and not nearly as much Ciri or beloved sorceresses as I would like. The conclusion leaves it open for Lady of the Lake which I eagerly await translation for.

    "Highly enjoyable "

    Style was a bit different. More focus on world building than in prior books. Still very good, however.

    "This might be my favorite of the series!"

    Brilliant writing, well voiced characters, and the stakes have never been higher in the series.

    Everyone is still after Ciri, dead or alive. Geralt and his companions are still trekking thru dangerous territories to locate the girl. Yennifer has her own problems, but won't give up on Ciri. Ciri herself is gravely wounded and finds refuge with a mysterious hermit, where she relates her story to the kindly old man. Through it all Ciri's fate becomes more clear, leaving the listener in suspense, while awaiting "Lady of the Lake"
