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.
This is my favourite Witcher book so far. And gotta say that if the rest of the series gonna be so good or even better than this one Im here for it and I’m gonna keep reading.
The plot is pretty okay, which really surprised me because the previous book in this series was sort of MEH. The plot of this book is simply more or less non existent.
The writing style is quit not there yet on the level with George R.R Martin but its getting there when we look again at the previous book in this series.
Don’t get me wrong the series is impressive and better than many other fantasy series but its not quit the “A Song Of Ice And Fire” series which if you didn’t know is my favourite fantasy series so far.
To be honest I’ve enjoyed this one a little more than the previous once in this series.
This book is more about Milva and Cahir rather than Geralt, which sort of disappointed me.
I give this book 3 / 5
