Blood of Elves
- By: Andrzej Sapkowski
- Narrated by: Peter Kenny
- Length: 10 hrs and 55 mins
For over a century, humans, dwarves, gnomes, and elves have lived together in relative peace. But times have changed, the uneasy peace is over, and now the races are fighting once again. The only good elf, it seems, is a dead elf. Geralt of Rivia, the cunning assassin known as The Witcher, has been waiting for the birth of a prophesied child. This child has the power to change the world - for good, or for evil.
A great start to a Promising Series

I love the wither games and was fully prepared to love this book.
Unfortunately, I was disappointed. Overall, it is effectively backstory for the game, which is fine as far as that goes, but it doesn't really go anywhere on its own. It gives you information in a format that is better than reading a history book, which is nice, but I can't see spending money on another one, which is a real pity.
The narrator is quite good. The voices and inflections serve to bring the characters to life.

Unbeknownst to mortals, a power struggle is unfolding in a world of shadows and danger. After centuries of stability, the balance among the Faery Courts has altered, and Irial, ruler of the Dark Court, is battling to hold his rebellious and newly vulnerable fey together. If he fails, bloodshed and brutality will follow.

Enjoyable but Simplistic
Ink Exchange was well written and the narration was quite good. However, while the book constantly refers to the characters dark nature, there's very little real depth to back up those natures. There's more teen angst than an episode of Angel and you never really feel connected to the characters.
That being said, it was well written and was enjoyable to listen to, if fluffy.
