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.

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.
Excellent story by Andrzej Sapkowski pet usual and a great performance by Peter Kenny as expected.
"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)
