Summary

Introducing Geralt the Witcher - revered and hated - who holds the line against the monsters plaguing humanity in the best-selling series that inspired the Witcher video games and a major Netflix show.

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....

I mistook the stars reflected in a pond at night..

My comments are going to be about the whole series rather than one book in particular. The reason is they are all pretty much the same anyway and no spoilers are involved. I eventually got around to listening to this series. This is the first set of books I have listened to without having read the books. I had high hopes having heard so much about them, the games and I really enjoyed the tv series on Netflix. Boy, was I disappointed! To coin the phrase used so often, "I mistook the stars reflected in a pond at night for those in the sky". Narrated by: Peter Kenny I can't fault him for his story telling. I just wish there was more of a story to tell. Quite how any of these books became popular, I'll never know. They are a waffley, boring meander that at time goes no where and have side characters that are inconsequential and often add nothing to the story. Too much dialogue, too many names to keep up with, not enough excitement. I want a story to draw me in and keep me interested, to keep me wanting to listen or turn the page. Unfortunately, those moments during this whole series seem to be fleeting. I really wanted to like them, but at times found my self shouting, "Get on with it!" It got so bad at times I probably missed better parts because I had switched off mentally and when I came to I didn't care enough to go back and listen again. At times it really didn't matter any way because the story was concentrating so much on nonsensical dialogue that not much had actually happened and I hadn't missed anything of any consequence. I think the whole series could have been condensed into one or two very good books.

Best Witcher book yet!

Fantastic reading as always from Peter Kenny and a great story focusing more on Gerald, his Witchering and less on politics and other characters as you find in other novels. For me, a fan of the video games, this was the best one yet as Geralt made use of his signs much much more and the action was excellent.

Good story

Great 2nd part into the story of the witcher series, some memorable moments and was impressed with the ogre voice over, did make me laugh.

Not the best in the series, but great to hear more

More Geralt stories is always a good thing, even if this novel isn't the best in the series. The story never seemed to quite link up as well as it should have, and some of the humor was a little more slapstick than the deadpan we are used to but its still a must read for fans of the series.

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.

The Best Of The Witcher

I may be in the minority but I thought this was the best of The Witcher books

Satisfactory

No Ciri in sight, so all good. As per usual, the plot is a bit choppy and fragmented, but the university created by the author is, again, absolutely wondrous and fascinating. One of the best books of the Witcher saga.

Every single one of the Witcher books is brilliant

I've read all of the books now and the narrator brings the books alive. Never heard anything like it. I can't thank Netflix enough for bringing this saga to my attention. It's kept me entertained for hours.

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.

Finally a linear story

3.5 Geralt loses his swords in this one, which seems to enact Murphy's Law for him, so he sets out to get them back, but that isn't as easy as he thought it was going to be. I know it's an unpopular opinion but this is my favorite Witcher book so far, I think it has a lot to do with it being one story, so it's linear. Would have liked to see more Yennifer and some Ciri The narration was great in this one, as always
