    Description

    Geralt of Rivia is on a mission to save his ward, Ciri, and with her the world, in this third novel in the best-selling Witcher series that inspired the Netflix show and video games.

    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.

    While war rages across all of 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, has vanished - until a rumour places her in the Niflgaard court, preparing to marry the Emperor. 

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

    Translated by David French.

    A very special adventure!

    Baptism of Fire is without a doubt the best book in The Witcher saga so far. Everything, from the extraordinary development of events, to the introduction of (probably) the best character in the saga, was such a joy to read. In addition to that, it was great to listen/read the random yet very interesting conversations of Geralt's company.
    Peter Kenny's narration further livens the novel, especially the conversations among Geralt's company.

    Peter Kenny brings this world to life.

    So far in the story I can not stress enough how much Peter Kenny's talent adds to these stories. Every character is immediately recognisable which makes the conversations between all the different characters so easy to follow and so much more immersive.

    Weakest of the Witcher books, but still good

    This book is the weakest of all Witcher books just because there are too many war storyline, but it's still good!

    Zoltan and Regis bring it to life

    This book brought exactly what the series needed, the introduction of new and interesting characters. There are so many side characters in the series
    It’s hard to remember who is who. But with these two it’s a totally different story. They both bring a breath of fresh air and comedy which is why this is my favourite of the series so far

    Better than previous books, BUT....

    It's better, as the headline suggest, better than the previous Witcher books. Better written/translates; Better story and the performance is top notch, BUT the sound engineering is still poor. Like the two previous books this book is also very quiet. And with alot of whispering in the book it's quite hard to hear. One might think it's my age or somerhing, but no, only these Witcher books has such low volume.

    Audio too low

    Amazing book, second time through, first as audiobook. Kenny does an excellent performance, but the audio file is insanely low. With volume at the max and headphones I can barely hear.

    Fillers and loss of story, sometimes

    This book was ok, it just felt dragged out sometimes, like the vampire part.

    The performance of Peter Kenny is 5/5, the story made me give it only 3 stars.

    Plus "baptism of fire" mentioned a bit too many times, especially towards the end (made me think of CinemaCins and there was a "ding" sound for every time these words are spoken) was distracting. It makes you wonder what does Andrzej mean until the very end (before the uneeded book 4 preview). Was this it? No, how about this one? And so on...

    I just love these adventures of Geralt and with the narrator you just get sucked into the story.

    Absolut Klasse

    Die Geschichte hat mir wirklich gut gefallen.
    Besonders gefreut habe ich mich, wie gut diese Übergreift in die Geschichte des Thronebreaker Spiels, welches die Geschichte von Queen Meve erzählt.

    strongly recommend

    I played the game, watched the TV series, read(listened) the books. Never cared for Ciri.
