    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

    Disappointing

    Meandering to the point of not respecting the reader... filler after filler after filler.
    the world and main characters are great in the series, yet the author spends most of this book on garbage page after page.
    Better to finish this story in your own head and save yourself the time, money and disappointment.

    Dissapointment

    Peter Kenny did a splendid job, as before. But I had a hard time finishing this installment. After thorougly enjoying the previous books I was looking forward to reading this, but it did not live up to my expectations.

    "The rock falls and everyone dies" said the DM

    I will never allow a poor ending to ruin the rest of a series for me, neither in book or video game form, but it is obvious that anyone who picked up the Witcher saga after falling in love with the Witcher video games will have to eventually experience the same feeling as with Mass Effect. A long, wonderful journey with amazing characters, only to culminate in a seemingly rushed, lifeless ending.
    I never fooled myself with thinking that the story will have a happy ending, but I was hoping for -some- sort of ending. Some sort of closure.
    A personal project by the author that had gotten slightly out of hand in scope, lost its creative spark and thus needed to be quickly wrapped up in a more or less thorough way - that is how this felt like. But a fun journey nonetheless, despite the ending.

    Still getting worse

    Said it before, say it again, this series gets worse and worse.

    The performance is on the top, but the writing is horrible by now (or it's the translation's fault).

    This book is a long row of furture people looking back on the main characters' lifes. This technic has been used before in better effect. This time it feels clumpsy and sets up multiply endings.

    Only buy this book if you really need it to complete a set.

    Disappointing end to a desalinating series.

    The only saving grace is outstanding performance of Peter Kenny, but the book itself is just a pile of garbage

    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.

    fantastic ending to a fantastic series

    sapkowski outdid himself with this book, as did Peter Kenney. a modern, dark fairy tale told with real suspense and yet the endings were earned.

    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*
