Before he was the guardian of Ciri, the child of destiny, Geralt of Rivia was a legendary swordsman. Join the Witcher as he undertakes a deadly mission in this standalone adventure set in the world that inspired the Netflix show and the hit video games.
Geralt of Rivia is a Witcher, one of the few capable of hunting the monsters that prey on humanity. A mutant who is tasked with killing unnatural beings. He uses magical signs, potions, and the pride of every Witcher - two swords, steel and silver.
But a contract has gone wrong, and Geralt finds himself without his signature weapons. Now he needs them back, because sorcerers are scheming, and across the world clouds are gathering.
The season of storms is coming....
Andrzej Sapkowski, winner of the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement award, started an international phenomenon with his Witcher series.

Lessons to learn here is....
1. This book ties into the short stories within the first two books and therefor has no connection to the main witcher saga, only in elements concerning few characters and underlying plots.
2. DONT read this book before the others, read it after or youre not going to understand what the hell is going on, this is obvious
3. Lesson number 2 is so important i felt it necessary to repeat it. Read the other books first. This is a standalone story which has underlying themes and links to Geralts destiny. You will not understand the end of this book if you havent read the other works.
All in all a very good read from one of my favourite authors. In my mind certainly up there with Tolkien and people like R R Martin.
The story is a standalone and is set before the main saga of Ciri and the Blood Of Elves, and has the Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, having his swords stolen and imprisoned on a trumped up charge. Once released, Geralt tries to track down his swords and the culprit who stole them. Along the way, the usual Witcher hijinks ensue; seducing beautiful sorceresses, slaying monsters, dealing with mad wizards and of course, saving his friend Dandelion at least once. Add in some of the intrigues of the court of the King, and some supernatural goings on, and it's good return of 'The Witcher'.
As always the world building in the medieval setting is very much in depth and always a joy to read, as is the writing, which is full of the humour, sarcasm and horror that I know and love from from the rest of the series.
It's a great and enjoyable read and a good addition if you're a fan of the series. But if you've not read any of the books yet, I'd recommend starting with the short story books first; 'The Last Wish' (my favourite of the series) and 'Sword of Destiny' as an introduction to the series, before diving into the rest of the books.
If you go for the audiobook option, it's once again read by the awesome Peter Kenny. His narration adds a whole lot more and really brings the story to life, and is absolutely recommended!
As the main story of The Witcher, Geralt of Rivia finished with the book 'Lady Of The Lake', as author Sapkowski has said (although the videogame 'The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt' is set after the books), I hope it's not the end of stories featuring Geralt, Dandelion, Yennefer, Triss Merigold and more, and we get to revisit more of their adventures in the future.
He now loves to read and realises that it isn't as hard as school used to make it :)
