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.

The best series of books I ever enjoyed.

I never thought that theses books would touch me so deep. Everything made me wonder about the meaning of life, and how to live it in a better way.

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.

It didn't need to be quite as long.

I really enjoyed the latter sections but the start was a long and mostly unnecessary slog.

Fantastic

As expected, the story and quality of the narration have remained excellent and have not wavered at all. 10/10

An ending...

an ending to this particular Saga but not roundly satisfying. worth a listen for completeness sake and Kenny's voice performance is excellent as always, but just... missing something.

Sadly my least favourite of the series

I really struggled with this book, there were times that I almost wanted to give up which is such as shame as I am a huge fan of the series and games.

There were a lot of very confusing storylines, one chapter in particular which involves a big battle bounces from character to character (not main or even secondary characters) as well as going back and forth in time. It was hard to follow and I didn't particularly care either. I feel this book could have easily cut out a few storylines and been much more successful.

hmmmm

felt slower and twistier than previous books and not in a good way. i struggled, i like the tale and so wanted to hear what happened but it took a while to drag through it. some of the characters didnt make sense and some were (deliberately?) unlikable

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.

Very disappointing

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 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.

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.
