Publisher's Summary

The Witcher returns in this action-packed sequel to The Tower of Swallows, in the New York Times best-selling series that inspired The Witcher video games.
After walking through the portal in the Tower of Swallows while narrowly escaping death, Ciri finds herself in a completely different world...an Elven world. She is trapped, with no way out. Time does not seem to exist, and there are no obvious borders or portals to cross back into her home world.
But this is Ciri, the child of prophecy, and she will not be defeated. She knows she must escape to finally rejoin the Witcher, Geralt, and his companions - and also to try to conquer her worst nightmare. Leo Bonhart, the man who chased, wounded, and tortured Ciri, is still on her trail. And the world is still at war.
Translated from the original Polish by David French.

I constantly find myself saying poor Ciri!

What did you love best about The Lady of the Lake?

I'm afraid if I met her in the real world, I'd accidentally kill her via smothering from hugging her so hard. I've always sympathized for her in the other stories, but with the stakes at an all time high in the series finale. and Peter Kenny's fantastic voice narration, I have never felt closer to the action.Andrzej Sapkowski once again proves that he can write an engaging story that involves truly complex themes. And he tells the story in a Quentin Tarantino like way that makes you have to wait until you reach the end before you can have a full understanding of all of the events that have taken place. And even with the ending, you still are left puzzled wondering what exactly it means to have the elder blood and what Ciri is truly capable of.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lady of the Lake?

When Geralt and his companions stormed Vilgevortz's fortress in an attempt to rescue Ciri and Yennifer. Geralt and Yennifer take on Vilgevortz while Ciri has a showdown with Bonhart.

What does Peter Kenny bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

What's funny is, at first, I didn't like Kenny's voice. It sounded so weird and was not what I expected it to be. Yet somehow, his accent which sounds somewhat Irish to me, worked really well for characters like Geralt, Dandelion, Regis, Vilgevortz, and many other side characters. Naturally, didn't work very well for the majority of the female characters and especially ones that spoke in a high-pitched voice such as Francesca Findabair and he was even worse when he tried to be sassy with female characters like Yennifer or Fringilla. However, somehow his best voice was for Cirilla of Vengerberg, daughter of Yennefer.Somehow, he was able to not only replicate a convincing female voice for her, but one that represented vulnerability, naiveness, and one that was also very defiant and would do anything to be back with the ones that she loved. You can't help but root for her the entire time. And there was a point in the book where Peter Kenny speaks as Ciri in a weeping tone that was so convincing, that I was nearly brought to tears. A very moving performance.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Ciri stood up to the lodge proclaiming Yennifer to be her mother and she called Geralt her dad.

Any additional comments?

This book is confusing. It has a bizarre ending, and the politics is an intriguing jumbled mess that could have been done without. But the overall story of Ciri, Geralt and his companions, and Yennifer is top notch and makes for a grand finish to this epic seven book series. Well worth the listen!

4.5 out of 5 stars. Take out some of the politics and a couple of the non-important side character story-arcs and this is easily one of the best books that I have ever read.
