  • An excellent read

    As a fan of the Witcher video games, based on Sapkowski's work, i started reading the books. While not as captivating as Sword of Destiny, Baptism of Fire certainly marks a high point in the series.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Lots of Lore and Backstories

    Another book that reminded me of the game, in that the story is more of a journey combined with side quests and events. That said, the ground work was laid for some epic moments, grand adventures, and fierce betrayals. While the books moved back and forth between characters, I have to admit that Geralt's storyline was my favourite. He had some of the best side characters (more Milva and Cahir, please!) and the most action scenes. I also enjoyed the snippets we got with Ciri, even though her story took a darker turn. The biggest draw for me was the backstories of the side characters, more details and lore for the monsters, and some really cool history for the world. The ending took me by surprise, and I can't wait to see what this bridge-book leads to!

  • The Witcher Matures

    A very enjoyable progression and maturation of the Witcher Series. The change in pace allows for a balance from the frenetic pace of the first two books. The characters become more relatable as we see them behind-the-scenes so to speak.

  • I miss the monsters

    This book is more of a 3.5 stars. I enjoyed it more than The Time of Contempt but I still feel like nothing much happened... although I couldn't stop reading! I'm having a hard time connecting with characters as I think a lot got lost in translation. The dialogue is very dry. That being said, I loved the new characters and really enjoyed the fact that Geralt was much more prominent in this book. I'm liking the political intrigue but miss the monsters lol!

    Thanks for your feedback!
