Now a Netflix original series!
The world is at war and the prophesied savior is nowhere to be found. The Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, races to find her -- but time is short, and an army is on his heels in the fourth book of the New York Times bestselling series that inspired the Netflix show and the hit video games.
The world has fallen into war. Ciri, the child of prophecy, has vanished. Hunted by friends and foes alike, she has taken on the guise of a petty bandit and lives free for the first time in her life.

But the net around her is closing. Geralt, the Witcher, has assembled a group of allies including Dandelion, Milva, Regis, and Cahir, to rescue her. Both sides of the war have sent brutal mercenaries to hunt her down. Her crimes have made her famous.

There is only one place left to run. The tower of the swallow is waiting...

Andrzej Sapkowski, winner of the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement award, started an international phenomenon with his Witcher series.

I thought this was another great work by Sapkowski continuing the Witcher's story after the events in Baptism of Fire. Most of this book however was from Ciri's pespective rather than Geralt's and it really reveals just how much Ciri has changed since the beginning. It also dawned on me when it is mentioned in book that witchers cannot use magic without their witcher medallions that it has been a while since we have seen Geralt use magic or hunt mosters like he did in the original books.

Honestly, it's not the best in the series. It ended okay but is easily the weakest of the Witcher series so far. This book is about a 40% Witcher and 60% Ciri novel. Way too much history filler about the background of the Witcher and Ciri storeys.
