Publisher's Summary

The Wizards Guild has been shattered by a coup and, in the uproar, Geralt was seriously injured. The Witcher is supposed to be a guardian of the innocent, a protector of those in need, a defender against powerful and dangerous monsters that prey on men in dark times. But now that dark times have fallen upon the world, Geralt is helpless until he has recovered from his injuries.
While war rages across all of the lands, the future of magic is under threat and those sorcerers who survive are determined to protect it. It's an impossible situation in which to find one girl - Ciri, the heiress to the throne of Cintra, has vanished - until a rumour places her in the Niflgaard court, preparing to marry the Emperor. Injured or not, Geralt has a rescue mission on his hands.
This is the third of the Witcher novels by Andrzej Sapkowski. Read by Peter Kenny.

Peter Kenny brings this world to life.

So far in the story I can not stress enough how much Peter Kenny's talent adds to these stories. Every character is immediately recognisable which makes the conversations between all the different characters so easy to follow and so much more immersive.

My favorite out of the saga so far!

The characters, the way the story unravels, leaves you wondering while listening attentively..
Out of the 5 I've read, this one I think was my favorite. The new characters introduced here captured my attention and, as someone who played The Witcher 3 before starting the books, provided much needed context

The best in the Witcher chronicles so far!

This had me in tears, laughter and so much more! The arc leads to an absolutely phenomenal climax, character development was moving, touching constantly bringing me into its story. This was a book that posed the existential crisis of its characters and ties it up so well at the end. As a Witcher fan this is like chocolate cake, as an avid reader/listener this was just a delight to experience.

good read.

Bit confusing at times with 3 or 4 storylines but a cracking good read. Once you get into it, hard to put down.

Geralt of Rivia

Babtised in fire, Geralt learns the meaning of friendship and gains more than just a story to his name. Introducing Zoltan and the return of Dandelion. Great book!
