Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling series that inspired the international hit videogame The Witcher.
The Wizard's 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 rumor places her in the Niflgaard court, preparing to marry the emperor.
Injured or not, Geralt has a rescue mission on his hands.
The witcher returns in this action-packed sequel to The Time of Contempt.

Critic Reviews

"The character interplay is complex, unsentimental and anchored in brutal shared history. All bodes well for twisty plotting to come." ( SFX)
"Sapkowski revitalizes the genre with energetic and compelling writing. A breath of fresh air in a well-worn genre. Don't miss it!" ( Dreamwatch)
"Like Mieville and Gaiman, Sapkowski takes the old and makes it new." ( Foundation)

Engaging Voice Over Work

Peter Kenny lends a mesmerizing voice to Geralt. Though through the series there has been strange changes at times between intonation of names and certain voices (ie Dandelion), his rendition of Geralt is superb. With such a masterful performance, it makes playing the Video Game version awkward, as Kenny's simply puts it to shame.
