    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.

    Geralt the Witcher has fought monsters and demons across the land, but even he may not be prepared for what is happening to his world. The kings and armies are manoeuvring for position, each fearing invasion from across the river, each fearing their neighbours more. Intrigue, dissent and rebellion are on all sides.

    The Elves and other non-humans are still suffering under decades of repression, and growing numbers join the commando units hidden deep in the forest, striking at will and then dissolving into the trees. The Magicians are fighting amongst themselves, some in the pay of the kings, some sympathetic to the elves.

    And against this backdrop of fear and contempt Geralt and his lover Yennefer must protect Ciri, orphaned heir and sought by all sides. For the prophecy rests on her, and whether she lives or dies she has the power to save the world - or perhaps end it.

    ©1995 Andrzej Sapkowski (P)2014 Orion Publishing Group

    Intriguing!!!

    Time of Contempt picks up nicely from where Blood of Elves had left us. In addition to that, the book ends in such a way that one cannot help but immediately pick up Baptism of Fire and go on with the story.
    ...
    Narration-wise, Peter Kenny does an outstanding job in giving voice to the characters of the novel.

    Amazing!

    Fantastic reading and really pulling in to the story. The narration convinced few people to listen to the book.

    Dragged out and dull

    I had huge hopes for this series after watching the Witcher on Netflix and all the reviews. The performance is ok but the books are so dragged out and it feels like the author is dragging it out to get more sales. Couldn’t finish the series …

    Not entirely bad but tedious as hell

    Every character has a plan and mno one succeeds in anything. On the other hand, ervery single failure, every minute of suffering is described in excrutiating detail. It is bit like the Empire Strikes Back, only that the Empire hits itself on the nose as well. Everyone is incompetent and weak. I like The Witcher better when it is the battle of able and competent characters.

    Best narrator ever!

    Another wonderful Witcher book, this one with a bit more fictional politics, and we see more character depth developing in our main favourites. Peter Kenny's narration made the tedium of the politics a whole lot more palatable. He is a genius and perfect for this series!

    This series disappointed me

    I was enjoying the series at first but started loosing interest. Too complicated to keep track of the number of characters and twists in the plot. The idea is good. The story is appealing if you like the genre and a more intricate and complex plot and characters

    love this series

    The narrator performs so well. Epic fantasy story. You learn a bit more about some characters back stories.

    A change from the previuous book.

    This time the book holds more action, more important events that no doubt will highly influence future events. There are however a severe lack of satesfaction and the end... is horrible. It made me throw my phone more then once as i swore for blood ans murder. Ciri was correct as she said in the dark hours. She has been abandoned by everyone. And now... i only wish for her to rage.

    Those of you who wanted a focus on Geralt will be disapointed for this is all about Ciri. Oh how I wish for her to grow a nice and spiky spine after these events.

    An amazing universe, but lack of depth

    As the second part of The Witcher series, I loved being able to see Geralt, Ciri, Yennefer, Dandelion and the other characters evolve in this book. The only problem is that, coming from The Witcher videogames, the book seems a little bit "shallow" in story and lore.

    (Super small spoiler)
    However, one of my favorite chapters appears in this book, and Peter Kenney does an amazing job acting the voice of Ciri as she wanders through the desert.

    Entertaining enough but teenage interest fantasy

    Well narrated. Wasn’t enthralled with the story. His characters are all so sarcastic and catty which I found off-putting. The narrative is okay and that universe is compelling enough.

    Characters come alive in the dirty and unfair world of the Witcher with the readers voice.

    The reader once again performs marvelously; giving each character not only a speech pattern but fitting accents and dialects to them.

    The story is befitting of the Witcher universe but appears somewhat too nice in this part of the series.
    The book is very obviously written as a part of a bigger series and could have done with a finish that is not as tv-series like as it is.

    Overall all my criticism is on a high level and only existent at all due to my high expectations.

    If you like fantasy and characters that are not simply good or evil you will like the Witcher.
