Review: Season of Storms by Andrzej Sapkowski

Season of Storms is the eight book in the Witcher series by Andrzej Sapkiowski translated into English, but chronologically the events take place right before the short stories of the first book in the series, The Last Wish.

Plot:

It all begins with an unfortunate contract and leads to a series of events in which Geralt of Rivia, the White Wolf, gets thrown in prison, has his swords stolen, and gets involved in a case of experimenting sorcerers without qualms, horrible mutations and demons. Trouble follows Geralt wherever he goes, and this time is no exception. Continue reading

Review: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine

I’m just going to come out and say it: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is my favourite game of all the games I’ve played so far since I got my PS4. I have the strange penchant to start with the third installment of game series (God of War, Diablo, Dragon Age), and this time it was no different. I never played the previous games, but I owned The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski, and I read that immediately after starting up the game. I bought this game at the end of 2015, beginning of 2016, and though I finished the main quest of Wild Hunt somewhere in 2017, it wasn’t until yesterday that I finished the last of the two DLC.

Review: Lady of the Lake by Andrzej Sapkowski

Lady of the Lake is the last book in the Witcher series by Andrzej Sapkowski. I’ve heard that there’s another book, Season of Storms, which will come out (translated in English) in 2018, but I think that one’s a short story collection.

Plot:

Ciri escaped the torturing arms of her pursuer, and fled into the Tower of Swallows. It transported her to a world of Elves, but not the Elves she knows. She is a prisoner, and they will only let her go if she agrees to do one thing. One terrible thing. Meanwhile Geralt is looking for Ciri back in their world with his companions, trying to save her from those who wish to harm her, or control her. Yennefer has been put in chains, and tortured, by people who want to get their hands on her surrogate daughter. And the Emperor of Nilfgaard too has his eye on the prize.

Review: The Tower of the Swallow by Andrzej Sapkowski

the-tower-of-the-swallow

This is the penultimate novel in The Witcher series by Andrzej Sapkowski.

Plot:

Ciri is being hunted by several parties who all have their own agenda’s. Some want to capture her, some want to kill her, some merely want to hurt her until she breaks. Other want to rescue her, to protect her. But Ciri’s done being hunted; she’s done letting things happen to her. It’s time she took control of her own fate, her own destiny – even though she doesn’t quite know what that is yet. One thing is certain: the Tower of the Swallow beckons.
