Publisher's Summary

Before he was the guardian of Ciri, the child of destiny, Geralt of Rivia was a legendary swordsman. Join the Witcher as he undertakes a deadly mission in this standalone adventure set in the world that inspired the Netflix show and the hit video games.

Geralt of Rivia is a Witcher, one of the few capable of hunting the monsters that prey on humanity. A mutant who is tasked with killing unnatural beings. He uses magical signs, potions, and the pride of every Witcher - two swords, steel and silver.

But a contract has gone wrong, and Geralt finds himself without his signature weapons. Now he needs them back, because sorcerers are scheming, and across the world clouds are gathering.

The season of storms is coming....

Andrzej Sapkowski, winner of the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement award, started an international phenomenon with his Witcher series.

Critic Reviews

"This is a series you can sink your teeth into." (BuzzFeed News)

"The universe of Sapkowski's The Witcher is one of the most detailed and best-explored in modern fantasy, offering endless opportunities for fresh ideas ... Complex character relationships enrich this already complex world; this is the sort of series fantasy fans will cherish." (B&N on Tower of Swallows

"Delightful, intense, irreverent, and compelling....you have to read The Witcher books because they are rife with all of the elements that make you love fiction, and especially fantasy, in the first place....In a word, The Witcher delivers." (Hypable)

Eh, its fine.

This novel is another short story collection, thinly disguised as a single narrative. Each setpiece revolves around Geralt finding himself in a bad spot and failing out of it. Rinse and repeat. Each episode is engaging enough but it's nothing spectacular. I'd only ecommend to fans of the series who just want 12 more hours Witcher.

Great entry into the witcher series

Great Book, and Peter Kenny has an amazing range of voices that he can put emotion into. For those of you a little confused, this book takes place(mostly) before the events of the other books, at least before Ciri is born.

A good Witcher story but much messier

I quite enjoyed this book, especially with Peter Kenny's usual winning performance. However, the story structure is more reminiscent of the short stories, but are forcefully tied up and mixed together into a continuous novel. Because of this, the flow can feel scattered and the pacing all over the place. However, at the end of the day, it is still a very fun and interesting story in the Witcher universe. Just be prepared to really focus on whats happening when and where.

Another masterpiece from Sapkowski

Another masterpiece from Sapkowski and exquisite reading from Peter Kenny which gives every chance to slip away into the world Sapowski creates. For anyone looking for a near perfect series this is one part in it. The times I need an escape from the sickness I face in this life, I open this series and all fades away. I look forward to the next work that is translated for English.

weakest of the pre stories

I have enjoyed the two previous pre stories of the series. this one however was in my opinion the weakest and overall not entertaining. I often spaced out on this one.

Great Story Great Voice Actor

Read as a prologue of sorts to the Stories in the Last Wish book 3 in the witcher series. (1st book you should read)

I absolutely loved the voice acting. I really felt apart of what I was read. All Amusing, Alarming, and Fun to listen to.

Thank you Mr. Sapkowski

Enter Dandelion 😂 silver tounged devil


Very happy the story isn't over. This is a must have in any true Witcher fans collection. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Also. For those starting out on the Witcher books; I'd recommend starting with this one. As this is a prequel.

Although, those who have read all of Mr. Sapkowski's works, will have some laughs as well.

Substandard

Peter Kenny once again delivered a great performance. However, the story seemed to drag on more than the previous books and compilations.

Disjointed Story

I wanted this to connect to all the previous books and bring some sort of conclusion, but it didn't. This is just another story of Geralt and Dandelion. I liked the story it just seemed disjointed.
