Publisher's Summary

The Wizards Guild has been shattered by a coup and, in the uproar, Geralt was seriously injured. The Witcher is supposed to be a guardian of the innocent, a protector of those in need, a defender against powerful and dangerous monsters that prey on men in dark times. But now that dark times have fallen upon the world, Geralt is helpless until he has recovered from his injuries.

While war rages across all of the lands, the future of magic is under threat and those sorcerers who survive are determined to protect it. It's an impossible situation in which to find one girl - Ciri, the heiress to the throne of Cintra, has vanished - until a rumour places her in the Niflgaard court, preparing to marry the Emperor. Injured or not, Geralt has a rescue mission on his hands.

This is the third of the Witcher novels by Andrzej Sapkowski. Read by Peter Kenny.

    "A Fiery Read"

    A slow start after the cliffhanger from Time of Contempt - but still a very good sequel! Great new characters, and another wonderful performance by Peter Kenny. On to the Tower of Swallows! :)

    "Twists of fate"

    great narrator, kept guessing as destiny and war turns the world upside down as Geralt seeks Ciri, providing another reason to hate portals atleast, few twists and turns as the time for Neutrality has long passed.

    "A great listen"

    it was a great listen. it did grate on my nerves that the pronunciation of dandelion's name was changed having listened to the other two books.

    I enjoyed the book though.

    "Odd ending."

    Like the others it ends on a cliff hanger that feels less than deserved. Still good book though.

    "Wonderful"

    A great continuation of a great series.

    With less of a focus on Siri, we mainly explore with Geralt and his newly acquired fellowship. I suppose it's hardly an original premise but it's a strong choice for the series and gives it some much needed focus and direction.
