Publisher Description

A deadly coup within the Wizard's Guild leaves the Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, gravely injured, and his ward Ciri missing in the third novel of Andrzej Sapkowski's groundbreaking epic fantasy series that inspired the hit Netflix show and the blockbuster video games. 
 
The Wizards Guild has been shattered by a coup, an uprising that has left Geralt 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.

While war rages across 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—until a rumor places her in the Niflgaard court, preparing to marry the Emperor.

Injured or not, Geralt has a rescue mission on his hands.

Supercell Noreaster ,

Feels like you are there with Geralt.

Excellent character development

We simply love Geralt of Rivia

I’m a Witcher stan. I’ve been reading a lot of negative reviews about this book. While it’s a bit of a departure from the previous, I thought it was still interesting and necessary. I feel like the general consensus is that this is a filler book. I don’t know if I necessarily agree with that, especially because there’s great lore dumps if you’re into that. Plus if you’re a fan of the games, there’s plenty in here for you too~

Starts out a little slow but…

After the chapters with all the politics it gets very good
