Publisher's Summary

After walking through the portal in the Tower of Swallows while narrowly escaping death, Ciri finds herself in a completely different world...an Elven world. She is trapped, with no way out. Time does not seem to exist, and there are no obvious borders or portals to cross back into her home world.

But this is Ciri, the child of prophecy, and she will not be defeated. She knows she must escape to finally rejoin the Witcher, Geralt, and his companions - and to try to conquer her worst nightmare. Leo Bonhart, the man who chased, wounded and tortured Ciri, is still on her trail. And the world is still at war.

©1999 Andrzej Sapkowski (P)2016 Orion Publishing Group Limited

Most dissatisfying ending to a wonderful series

This book has the most dissatisfying ending I've ever come across in any work of fiction.

Seeing how exciting the series otherwise is, I'll even call it completely disappointing.

Also, an even larger part than of the previous books is spent on long, boring and hardly relevant​ flash-forwards.

All in all a great series, but this last book makes me doubt that I'll ever read it again (not counting the first two books of short stories)

Masterpiece.

Great performance from Peter Kenny, as usual.
All pieces of the story finds right place and when you think that you know the ending ... Sapkowski deliver it in his own, great fashion.
You will probably consider playing The Whicher to extend pleasure of traveling from Mahakan to Dol Blatana in best company.

Great story with great voice acting!

"Side stories" are not quite as compelling as the great main story, thus some side characters remain a bit uninteresting.

Not a patch on previous books in the series. Hard to believe it was written by the same person. Must have run out of ideas!

An enjoyable listen, but...

An enjoyable read, but my least favourite of the witcher series so far. It failed to keep my attention as avidly as the others.

I loved this series!

I really did enjoy all the books. they supplement the game well and are incredibly voiced by Peter Kenny. highly recommended to any fans of the game or those interested in a European fantasy series.

An astounding series read by the Master himself.

This review is for the Witcher Chronicals as a whole.
I eas drawn to this series despite muself as it starts with a couple of short story compilations wjich I usually avoid. To my surprise I was quickly drawn into the world as the authors mix of dark brutality, philosophy and humour so typical of the little Eastern European SF/F that I've read began to reveal themselves. Pleasingly Sapkowski seems to pay as much attention to the detail of the minor characters as the leads and somehow manages to avoid many of the western SF/F tropes that have lead me to become bored with the genre over the (many) years. If anything you might find the pace of the novels a little meandering at times as the authors copious use of flashback and third person narration can leave one feeling that they are still listening to a collection of short stories. However it does not take long to get used to and remains true to the theme of the earlier works.
a final word on the narration. Peter Kenny is by far the most talented and versatile reader I have ever listened to! I fell in love with his voice on his fantadtic work on Iain (M) Banks' novels and highly recommend these if you haven't heard them yet. This series has so many characters and dialects that in the hands of a lesser voice actor it could have become confusing but Kenny triumphs.
Overall then this series is a breath of fresh air for those worn down by the similarities in story and writing style so common in modern SF/F. Give it a go.

The Witcher [Snooze] Saga

Any additional comments?

Im sorry to say this but normally I am captivated and drawn into these kind of books but this whole series [accept for the odd splash of excitement] I found to be really hard going to the extent that on several occasions I honestly dozed off and had to rewind to the start of the part I had missed. Oh boy what a waste of time and credits this whole series turned out to be.

Only issue is that if you have played the games then you might prefer the voice actors in it..

Why Did I Bother

What would have made Lady of the Lake better?

A story line might have made it better. But it was just a final book that tried to tie up loose ends that were completely irrelevant. I ploughed through it, but felt more confused than when I started. poor and yet complex stories that didn't flow or at times have any relevance to each other

What will your next listen be?

Jo Abbercrombe where are you?

Would you listen to another book narrated by Peter Kenny?

He is pretty good. Keeps the accents going, gets a bit complex at times and sometimes it difficult to 'know' who's speaking, the names and accents were at times just mind boggling complex

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

A few happy endings - sortof

I'm so glad that the Witcher books have been turned into audiobooks and shared on audible! Peter Kenny and his hundreds of distinct voices delivers a stellar performance. Incredible writing and storytelling. A superb end to the series.

Tantalising end to an amazing saga

This book was beautifully read and is able to transport you to another world.

There are only some slightly confusing segue moments. But easy to follow if you have listen to previous the Witcher books.
