In the beginning of this book he did not recovered, but he really had no time for full recovery as he needed to finish what he was trying to do before he was stopped.
He left the sanctuary he was staying in and went straight toward the war front – all the nearby kingdoms were entertaining themselves in all-out war. Geralt still had an illusion that he would be able to stay neutral. To make a lon In the previous book Geralt’s POV ended with him getting beaten the crap out of, in a really bad way. To make a long story short, his failure in this was nothing short of spectacular.
On his way he somehow managed to collect a ragtag group of followers. I cannot say that is was his winning personality as he was either brooding, or big jerk all the time. Seriously in the beginning I was very exciting to know that the vast majority of the book would be told from his POV.
It turned out to be one of the most boring ones because of his behavior. Yennefer had very little screen time – practically a couple of pages, but it was very exciting to read them. First, she finally realized what exactly she was playing with forces way beyond her abilities, sorceress or not. I really hope this would bring her attitude down a couple of levels: Second, as the result she ended up being very pissed off and she has enough competence as a magic user to do something about it.
So Geralt is boring. None of his companions however are. Everybody’s favorite bard still provides comic relief. Zoltan and his parrot are very colorful. Do not let me get started on a vampire healer yes, you read it right and no, he does not sparkle.

Oh I almost forgot. Somehow I am not crazy about that development. The ending was somewhat abrupt, but highly ironic. Otherwise it was a great book and my only wish for the next one is less Geralt’s brooding or failing that – less Geralt.

The man with the plan! After getting his ass sapkowskki in Time of ContemptGeralt is forced to take some time off to heal and mend in an exquisite retreat run by dryads. But when some damning news finds its way to Witcher, he saddles up and hit the road.
To reach the capital of Nifflegard. Well, that’s the problem. Unfortunately, Geralt has to navigate through war-ridden nations and massive armies clashing relentlessly for victory. Fortunately, he won’t be alone on this journey.
Meet the most unusual fellowship! Geralt traveling with the Black Knight sapowski Unusual is an understatement, my dear friend! I didn’t think any of them were memorable or notable. Characters like Zoltan, Milva, Regis were a delight to read and discover. One of the reasons I love Witcher series is because of the writing as well as the character interactions.
For me, this installment pulled off both of these aspects with ease.

Geralt’s need to pull a Batman Read: I work alone in Batman’s voice and Dandelion’s outbursts at that point, which reduces Geralt to a pouting child was really fun to read. And Of course, the action! I loved the chaos, I loved the constant confusion of war and I loved chrzezt battle for the bridge! Exclusive Spanish cover featuring Battle for the Bridge!

My adventure with The Witcher novels continues at a breakneck pace as, sapkowksi the previous books, I devoured this story in two days.
This series has shown moments of utter brilliance but with certain plodding and info-dumping sections, it’s never quite chrzestt to the heights that it truly could have. So far this is the finest entry and it features everything I love from this series. Following the finale of Time of Contempt Geralt is badly injured and was transported to Brokilon forest Ognnia adventure with The Witcher novels continues at a breakneck pace as, like the previous books, I devoured this story in two days.
Following the finale of Time of Contempt Geralt is badly injured and was transported to Brokilon forest by the enchantress Triss.
Under the sapkowsski eyes of the Dryads he is slowly regaining his health. As soon as he feels anywhere near healthy enough he plans to rescue Ciri who everyone believes is in Nilfgaard. The truth is that Ciri has actually taken on the guise of a bandit with the pseudonym Falka operating in a Robin Hood-style posse. She’s become quite a celebrity amongst the common folk but her temper and blade-prowess have become legendary in a short space of time.
As well as series favourites Geralt, Ciri and Dandelion we are introduced to a plethora of new characters here that are some of thegreatest of Sapkowski’s creations thus far. Milva the forest dwelling archer and Regis a barber-surgeon are two of the finest even though those descriptions give nothing away regarding what to expect from them in this narrative. Unlike the last two books which have had a large amount of different point of view perspectives eighty-percent of this novel is following the Witcher on his mission to rescue Ciri.
Geralt is initially uninclined to let anyone share his burden but comradeship does succeed towards the finale. The conversation and banter between the members of this ensemble is excellently crafted as many sapkoowski the characters are so different. Although his closest friend, Geralt, and Dandelion could not possibly be any more different and I often chuckled at their oddness reflected in their exchanges.
Chrzest ognia (Saga o Wiedźminie, #5) by Andrzej Sapkowski
The other sections that we follow are what is happening to Ciri at the other end of the world. We also see a few scenes from the viewpoint of certain enchantresses who seem to have a scheme under development.
Chrzext few moments feature Dijkstra who is the head of Redania’s secret service. The war is raging all over the world, mainly Nilgaardians verses everyone else but in politics, things are never that simple, and with all the names of factions, King’s and noble houses I still occasionally get confused about who is fighting who, however; that actually suits the vibe in this book.
As the fellowship are on their journey they come across many battles, fights, and skirmishes and Sapkowski’s skillful writing accentuates the confusion and unpredictability of war but also heightens the fact that the brotherhood are so isolated in trying to achieve their objective.
There are so many standout moments and set-pieces, character development is sublime, and relationships that are frosty at best transcend any predicted outcome as the Brotherhood fight for their life and for Ciri. This series is finally reaching the lofty heights that it has always hinted at and I can’t wait to start The Tower of the Swallow straight away. This entry is exceptional and as well as the finest story in The Witcher saga it is also probably in my top books of all ognja.
There is a lot of time spent with Geralt and his newly acquired fellowship, which I think was a ogniw decision. The new characters — mainly Regis, Milva, Zoltan and Cahir — are wonderful additions. The quest for Ciri takes Geralt and his companions across a desolate landscape of massacre, pillage and displacement — occasionally pausing to vanquish marauders, protect women and children, deal with greedy peasants, escape from captivity, discuss herb lore, philosophize about various topics, or debunk legends with mathematical proofs.
The characters involved are all deep and interesting, but they spend most of the novel aimlessly wandering about or conversing.
