Description

The adventures of Geralt the Witcher continue in this second novel in the bestselling Witcher series that inspired the Netflix show and video games.

The kings and armies are manoeuvring for position, each fearing invasion from across the river, each fearing their neighbours more. Intrigue, dissent and rebellion fester on all sides.

After decades of oppression, the elves and other races are fighting each other and attacking the humans – and with growing numbers preparing for battle, the threat of all-out war looms ever greater.

Against this backdrop of fear, Geralt and Yennefer must protect Ciri, the orphaned heir who is sought by all sides. For the child of prophecy has the power to change the world – if she lives to use it.

Translated by David French.

Publisher Review

Like Mieville and Gaiman, Sapkowski takes the old and makes it new - FOUNDATION An incredibly nuanced, well-articulated novel, imbued with a self-assured command of description and brimming with Eastern European folklore - Starburst on Time of Contempt Delightfully dry humour, mythology brimming with radical creatures and a group of interesting characters - Fantasy Book Review One of the best and most interesting fantasy series I've ever read - Nerds of a Feather There's lots of imagination on show, the writing has a strong voice, and the Witcher is an entertaining character - Mark Lawrence
