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.

The Furthest Station is a part of the PC Peter Grant series by Ben Aaronovitch, only it’s not a book or a graphic novel, it’s novella! I feared the novella format would be too short to properly enjoy, but that turned out to be a faulty assumption.

Plot:

Ghosts are not a rare occurrence on the London Underground, but these ghosts are different. They are aggressive and frightening. And it seems these ghost have an urgent message; only they can’t seem to deliver it. Luckily Peter Grant is on the case! He is joined by Nightingale, Jaget Kumar, Toby the ghost hunting dog and his teenage cousin, Abigail, who has been dabbling in magic herself.
