    Description

    Geralt the Witcher - revered and hated - holds the line against the monsters plaguing humanity in the best-selling series that inspired the hit Witcher Netflix show and video games.

    Geralt of Rivia is a Witcher, a man whose magic powers and lifelong training have made him a brilliant fighter and a merciless assassin. Yet he is no ordinary killer: he hunts the vile fiends that ravage the land and attack the innocent. But not everything monstrous-looking is evil; not everything fair is good...and in every fairy tale there is a grain of truth. 

    Translated by David French.

    Andrzej Sapkowski, winner of the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement award, started an international phenomenon with his Witcher series. In this second collection of short stories, following the adventures of the hit collection The Last Wish, join Geralt as he battles monsters, demons and prejudices alike....

    ©1993 Andrzej Sapkowski (P)2015 Orion Publishing Group

    Indispensable !

    A part from this great collection of short stories by Andrzej Sapkowski, which I do not really need to describe, Peter Kenny's narration simply gives the story another dimension!

    A great read and a listen!

    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.

    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)

    Geralt's Voice In My Head

    When I think of Geralt speaking, I hear Peter Kenny. The voice work and acting in these books is incredible.

    Compared to later works, Sword of Destiny is a bit heavy handed, but it is nonetheless a beautiful series of stories. Though it is an anthology, it does convey how a Witcher comes to accept relationships and responsibilities.

    A great sequel

    This book does a great job of advancing the story and introducing us to new characters who will play major roles in the next books. However it lacks the addictiveness of the first book. Still a great read

    not the same as Netflix, but like this better.

    Narrative was good, he give life to the characters, as to many do not.
    The storey it self is as it is with this author. Not hard to follow, you do not get everything served on a platter, but have to guess a little.

    If you like the show and if you're new to witcher

    This was a great listen. A great follow-up to the last Wish! Looking forward to the next one.

    Loved it!!!

    Finished in one sitting!
    The story is pretty interesting, but the main reason I liked it so much is a beautiful voice of Peter Kenny. The way he voices all the characters, the emotions and special accents, there are no two voices alike in the whole book, every one is a special snowflake. He did an excellent job, and I wish I'll stay with him until the end of the series, because since the first sound I will just not accept any other voice. Peter Kenny really loves what he is doing, he puts a bit of his soul in every word he says, in every sound he pronounces, and it is very noticeable. He experiences all the characters' emotions, and helps you to do the same. The embarrassment, the pride, the prejudice, all of it. Even if you don't like fantasy, please, search for other books voiced by him, it's that kind of thing that everyone should experience in their life. Thank you!

    Ciri and Yen!

    I like Geralt's strong sense of morality, and dark sense of humor. I liked seeing his relationship with Yennifer delevelop. I loved that we met Ciri in this, and how she and Geralt relate to each other has to be the high point of this book. That said, I really liked some stories better than others, to the point were a few really couldn't keep my interest

    Peter Kenny is a good narrator, he really makes these characters come alive, but the sort of Nordic accent he does for Geralt isn't to my taste at

    And someone must have told him about the Dan-Dee-lion/ Dandil-lion thing, because he doesn't do that anymore

    Fantastic

    A fantastic book. All the short stories are well written and interesting. Like the first book of short stories however, you probably should know a bit about "The Witcher" beforehand, as there are little in the way of explanation of lore and background.

    0.85x playback speed is the clue!

    Everything is great about this book. Only the narrator talks too fast. I put the speed of the audiobook at 0.85x and then it became an awesome experience.

    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!

    Good to the half

    The first half of the book is well written and tells about Geralts journeys as a monsterhunter. The writing style deterioates to a childrenbook as soon as ciri enters the story.
    When the author cant feature children without making it a childrens book, he shouldn t feature them as protagonists.

    Spannende Geschichten und ein großartiger Sprecher

    Es ist wirklich außerordentlich gut, wie Peter Kenny diese spannenden, teils bewegenden Geschichten rund um den Witcher interpretiert. Ich mag seine „normale“ Stimme sehr und finde beeindruckend wie er sie abwandeln kann, um die verschiedenen Stimmen der vielen Charaktere darzustellen.

    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!

    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.
