Publisher's Summary

Geralt. The witcher whose mission is to protect ordinary people from the monsters created with magic. A mutant who has the task of killing unnatural beings. He uses a magical sign, potions and the pride of every witcher - two swords, steel and silver. But what would happen if Geralt lost his weapons? 

Andrzej Sapkowski returns to his most popular hero in a stand-alone novel where Geralt fights, travels and loves again, Dandelion sings and flies from trouble to trouble, sorcerers are scheming...and across the whole world clouds are gathering - the season of storms is coming....

Sapkowski does it again

Are any series-long questions answered? NO. Do we get a definitive ending? NO. Do we get any details that change the reading of previous parts in the saga? NO. What we do get is some beautiful insights into the world and characters, some of the most exciting of Geralt's adventures, real stakes despite this being a prequel and Sapkowski's unique style and humor at its finest. Great for series veterans AND newcomers who aren't sure whether or not they'll like the saga, but want a taste. The vocal performance is stellar as well.

A saga i wish would never end

Peter Kenny as usual nailing it.
Not much to say about the book other than my favourite The Witcher books are the ones of Geralt doing the witcher around the world.

Further Witcher excellence

A wonderful twisting yarn that adds further colour to the world of Witcher Geralt whilst passing a few observations about our own. Whatever order the reader chooses to access these fabulous novels in, this should not be your first encounter - you will appreciate this book much more if you are already well versed in the lore & characters. There is humour, there is darkness, the inevitable sorceresses & of course an array of monsters, including various of human origin. With his trusted steed Roach at his side, Geralt traverses awkward situations that are not of his own making; at least mostly not ;) The narration is excellent and helps add life to our protagonists with Peter Kenny successfully pulling off the various voices required. The patter between Dandelion & Geralt is particularly close to how I imagined when reading earlier books in the series. The ending of the book gives us a satisfying yet intriguing & provoking epilogue... but before that you should set out upon this adventure - don't forget your swords.

More Lore than Story

Taking place between two short stories in the Sword of Destiny novel, you can't help but feel like this should have been a short story aswell. If you have read all the novels like me then you might find this a bit tedious, as this is basically a retread of events done better with a sprinkling of modern political views and the occasional lore. Geralt has little room for characterisation in this as his important emotional arc is done in the previous and following story.
As always the voice work is impeccable, but I still struggled to listen to some characters go on and on without interruption. Overall I feel a lack of the attitude, gripping fast plot and interesting characters found in the previous books bring this good book down to just "okay."

Can't fault it. Andrzej at his best!

I actually looked forward to the drive into work each morning so I could listen to an hour of this great listen. I have read all of the Witcher books and this rates right up there.

Felt a bit short but definitely worth the listen!

Great listen though it was a bit short and storyline not as strong as the other books. Loved the action, a single story (instead of short stories), and characters. Would've liked a stronger storyline with more of yennifer in it.
