To protect his ward Ciri, Geralt of Rivia sends her to train with the sorceress Yennefer. But all is not well within the Wizard's Guild in the second novel of the Witcher, Andrzej Sapkowski's groundbreaking epic fantasy series that inspired the hit Netflix show and the blockbuster video games.
Geralt is a Witcher: guardian of the innocent; protector of those in need; a defender in dark times against some of the most frightening creatures of myth and legend.

His task now is to protect Ciri. A child of prophecy, she will have the power to change the world for good or for ill—but only if she lives to use it.

    Best fantasy series ever. Being an avid reader, I was intrigued by the books to watch the Netflix movies which brought the characters to life. A must read!

    Amazing! I must admit that this is my favorite of the series thus far. It does a great job of setting up the hype for the next book and from the very start it expands the witcher universe. There is a huge focus on Ciri! So if you have been wondering what's up with the hype about this child of destiny? Then your in for a treat. She develops leaps and bounds in this tale (although maybe not in the right direction). Your in for a treat. Enjoy!
