Description

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.

After walking through the portal in the Tower of Swallows while narrowly escaping death, Ciri finds herself in a completely different world...an Elven world. She is trapped with no way out. Time does not seem to exist and there are no obvious borders or portals to cross back into her home world.

But this is Ciri, the child of prophecy, and she will not be defeated. She knows she must escape to finally rejoin the Witcher, Geralt and his companions - and also to try to conquer her worst nightmare. Leo Bonhart, the man who chased, wounded and tortured Ciri, is still on her trail. And the world is still at war.  

©1999 Andrzej Sapkowski (P)2016 Orion Publishing Group Limited

Great story

Im familiar with Sapkowski's Witcher since his first novels. I have read everything he wrote. I come form Poland where Witcher and Reynevan are well known. I wanted to listen the books in other language and I was surprised to find that there are English and German audiobooks.
overall score is 5, but the translation is not the best. on couple of occasions the translator failed to pick up the nuances in speech. however it had little or no consequence to the story.
classic fantasy, great read.

A shockingly poor end to the series

This book was a let down, it was an attempt at Holywood movie tempo after a long series of solid and fullfilling sorry telling.
This time so much happens simply for the plot to continue forward, it felt like an entirely different author.

The narrator, as always, was absolutely excellent.

Despite some nonesense, a great book overall.

Finally finished The Witcher saga.

If not for the senseless traveling through the worlds done by Ciri, and whole bunch of filler chapters in the last book, the whole series would've been superb.

The Lady Of The Lake just felt like partially written by Sapkowski's janitor. The other ones are great though. Nonetheless recommended overall.

Glad I am through with the whole series!!!

The whole series is an addiction which takes up so much of your time and you just cannot resist the temptation to go chapter after chapter, series after series. Superbly narrated and just awesome!!! Well done.

Last book... skip it.

Firat some nonsense with camelot that might as well be dinald duck for all i care. then some bs about some dreamer looking back in history. Then stockholmsyndrome probable kidnapping, rape, childnapping and overall crimes against everything that can be considered good. There is also adultery and deception and betrayal. Overall it's in poor taste and quite revolting.

the Witcher Story comes to an end

final chapter, great but was hoping for more context about the great frost and how Ciri is supposed to stop it.

Stunning

Loved it, can't believe the saga ends here and thus, of all ways.

Or does it?

The best series of books I ever enjoyed.

I never thought that theses books would touch me so deep. Everything made me wonder about the meaning of life, and how to live it in a better way.

Good read that deserves a better ending

Peter Kenny did an excellent job reading the story.
The story itself is also very captureing, like all the other previous parts as well. But the ending is wired, weak and doesn't fit the story at all. Shame, for until the last 10 minutes it was awesome ...

Less woul be more

I love the entire series, yet this book seems not to fit in so well...
Sometimes it's just to much irrelevant content for a long stretch of the story.

Yet, totally worth getting through.

There is no world where a witcher ain't needed

Love the series and the voice actor.

It is very enjoyable, enraging at times and funny.

Poorly structured narrative

5 stars go to Peter Kenny for his performance. And also for not going mad by reading it.

The "book" receives a 1 star rating because it is the culmination of the unstructured story-telling by the autor.
I can see that this is an attempt at world-building but it feels more like getting massively side-tracked far too late in the series.

If you have seen the netflix production and got slightly confused about the timeline of events, please acknowledge that the netflix series already has cleaned up a lot of the original much more confusing story.

Flat story and extremely boring book *spoiler*

The Witcher series declined from book 3 on considerably cumulating in this extremely boring book filled with much too many irrelevant (new) characters with their inconsequential storylines which compelled me to actually write this review to deal with my disappointment. It seems that the author didn't know how to pursue the story of Geralt, Yennifer and Ciri and instead digressed to other parts of the world. It feels like hours upon hours needed to be filled with "something" because there was no real idea how to get the main story going forward without finishing it in 2 chapters. And on top of it the author works with the technique of foreshadowing so you are even not surprised most of the time about the outcome. But if the outcome is given up in the beginning then the journey through the story has to be captivating and in that he fails unfortunately completely, at least for me. And even when one visits the main characters and wants to find out how the journey was most of the time they also tend to do inconsequential stuff. Ciri jumping through hundreds of worlds without real meaning (yeah I get it after a couple of worlds that she is the master of space and time). Geralt "suddenly" forgetting is zeal in finding Ciri and "enjoys" life in Toussaint. Yennifer being a prisoner, after a while still a prisoner, continuous to be a prisoner. The lodge of sorceresses being "mighty in talking and doing nothing" and consequentially achieving nothing. And then when I actually skipped ahead in the book a bit (what I almost never do but felt compelled to if I didn't want to stop all together) you encounter in my opinion one of the most boring and stupid storytelling techniques. Ciri kind of decides to "don't fight destiny" (aka giving up), jumps through a portal opened by another pretty inconsequential character who bored one throughout the book with endless dialogues and delivers herself to the bad guy. Yeah great plan *facepalm*. And then of course finally the other main characters getting their act together and show up just in the nick of time. Yeah "destiny" rocks *facepalm*. The story stalls for hundreds of pages and then you get the "finger-snipping-all-in-one-place-slaughtering-each-other" event. And since I was listing to the audio book I was surprised to see that after the main event beating the bad guy was over 4 hours of the book remains. What? What else to come? Oh right, I forgot.... staying true to the theme of the book more inconsequential stuff. *sigh*
