Description

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.

In this collection of short stories following the adventures of the hit collection The Last Wish, join Geralt as he battles monsters, demons and prejudices alike....

Superb!

This should be the second book in the novel series, but it does't show up as such in Audibles list.
It captures events after The Last Wish and before Blood of Elves.

Otherwise it's a fantastic story and an amazing performance by Peter Kenny.

Read this book second

great book, several related short stories.
even though this is the first book, read it second and the second one first. they are chronologically reversed despite the stories being originally published individually in sequence.
I read the second first and I'm glad I did. it sets up the events that lead into the series.

Next level entertainment

The book is good, interresting and twisty story, well written. But the reading is great as well. Lots of effort in voice acting, i mean accents tones. It is awesome. Loved it, can only recommend it. (if you arent familiar with the Witcher series, these are small novels of a warrior fighting monsters and struggling in his life)

So much more...

I went into this series of stories expecting to be entertained, for surely enough the first collection of short stories is really great and entertaining, but this one goes beyond. The stories manage to both captivate and move the listener - with narrator Peter Kenny not missing a beat. He lends both voice and soul to the rich gallery of people in Sapkowski’s universe and I don’t believe anyone could have done a better job of it. I’m already excited to start the next book!

Amazing book, even better narrator

The Witcher series is one of my favorites of all time. This time, however, I discovered the amazing, narration of Peter Kenny, which brought to life this universe to another level. I recommend this a hundred percent.

Amazing Narrator

There is nothing else i can say about this book that hasn't already been said.
But i have to praise Mr Peter Kenny , he has really outdone himself this time , especially in the Story "Eternal Flame" he has knocked it completely out of the park!

This is worth buying for the narration alone!

Fantastic!

This audiobook was awesome, simple as that. Peter Kenny does voices fantastically and his pronunciation of the different and difficult names seemed amost easy.
Yarpen Zigrin's Herald scene made me laugh out in public which triggered some weirded out looks.
The stories were so smooth and the different characters and monsters were so distinct and interesting that I had to keep on listening.
Will listen to more Sapkowski/Kenny. Can't wait actually!

Simply outstanding!

Fantastic performance, fantastic story. Peter Kenny has outdone himself in this reading, improving further on his already great previous performance on The Last Wish.

Humans invading a mystical world

Welche Figur hat Ihnen am besten gefallen? Warum?

I especially liked the Dryad Queen. She is a powerful figure with an important message to the protagonist. Had a lot of fun with the changeling, too.

Hat dieses Hörbuch Sie emotional stark bewegt? Mussten Sie laut z.B. lachen, weinen, zweifeln, etc.?

At first I almost despaired at the dialects of the spoken words. Add unfamiliar names and I was having a hard time understanding the first story. But the more I heard, the more I got used to it the more I actually came to truly appreciate it.
It's a most intrigueing setting, humanity invading the last places and hideouts of the mystical races one remembers from faerie tales and mythology.

Spannende Charaktere und Story, toller Sprecher

Die Welt des Witchers wirkt lebendig und glaubhaft. Dieses wird erreicht durch die Zeichnung interessanter Charaktere, von denen man den Eindruck bekommt, dass sie Teil einer Welt sind, in der auch noch viele andere Entwickelungen stattfinden.

Besonderes Lob gilt aber auch dem Sprecher, der sehr facettenreich den verschiedenen Rollen Leben einhaucht. Grandios!
