“Sword Of Destiny” By Andrzej Sapkowski Book Review

Geralt is a witcher, a man whose magic powers, enhanced by long training and a mysterious elixir, have made him a brilliant fighter and a merciless assassin. Yet he is no ordinary murderer: his targets are the multifarious monsters and vile fiends that ravage the land and attack the innocent. He roams the country seeking assignments, but gradually comes to realise that while some of his quarry are unremittingly vile, vicious grotesques, others are the victims of sin, evil or simple naivety.

Just as “The Last Wish” this book was also a collection of short stories which follows Geralt. However these short stories are longer than the stories from “The Last Wish”.

It’s important to mention that this book was written 1 year or so before “The Last Wish” but chronologically this book comes after “The Last Wish” so keep that mind. 

There is much action in this one than in the “The Last Wish”, and there is less drama between Geralt and Yennefer which I personally am very thankful for.

The writing style is good but still there are times were it goes downhill just as in “The Last Wish”. As well as there are times when the writing style feels like a cross between Harry Potter and A Song of Ice and Fire Series.

The characters are pretty okay. There are some good characters and there are some annoying characters. Which you can pretty much expect from a book series. Just as in “The Last Wish”.  However this one had more of these good characters and less of these annoying character as the “The Last Wish”.

This one also had more creatures in it which played bigger role than just couple of dialogues which happened in “The Last Wish”. 

 The dialogue were pretty uneven kindly said. There were times where the dialogues had probably way too much exposition and varied very wildly in tone to each other.

There were still parts which felt really boring just as in “The Last Wish”, but there were less of these parts than in the “The Last Wish”.

This book however provides you with large amount of details when it comes to Geralt’s work as the Witcher and details about many of the creatures and beats which you can find in the universe. 

This one also provides you with more details about Geralt’s and Yennefer’s relationship. Which for some people might be a big point. 

I give this book 4 / 5

  2. I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all
    site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net
    will be a lot more useful than ever before.
