For more than a hundred years humans, dwarves, gnomes and elves lived together in relative peace. But times have changed, the uneasy peace is over and now the races once again fight each other - and themselves: dwarves are killing their kinsmen, and elves are murdering humans and elves, at least those elves who are friendly to humans . . . Into this tumultuous time is born a child for whom the witchers of the world have been waiting. Ciri, the granddaughter of Queen Calanthe, the Lioness of Cintra, has strange powers and a stranger destiny, for prophecy names her the Flame, one with the power to change the world - for good, or for evil . . . Geralt, the witcher of Rivia, has taken Ciri to the relative safety of the Witchers' Settlement, but it soon becomes clear that Ciri isn't like the other witchers. As the political situation grows ever dimmer and the threat of war hangs almost palpably over the land, Geralt searches for someone to train Ciri's unique powers. But someone else has an eye on the young girl, someone who understand exactly what the prophecy means - and exactly what Ciri's power can do. This time Geralt may have met his match.… (més)

The book is mostly dialogue. It's as if the author forgot that he has to put effort into setting the scene. The last 15 pages or so read like a rough draft. If I hadn't seen the show, I probably wouldn't read the next book. ( )

This is the first book in the “Witcher Saga” proper. The books leading up to this one are short story collections that set up the characters and relationships while also building out the world.

The funny thing is, this book still felt a bit like several novellas stitched together, like the old-fashioned fix-up novels from the golden age of sci-fi. The end result is a novel that still feels fairly episodic. It works, but it doesn’t build to much of a climax.

Instead, it’s a series of stories about Geralt’s ward, Ciri, her early training, and the dangers she faces from the outside world. Geralt isn’t even the viewpoint character for most of the book, with Dandelion, Triss, Ciri and Yennifer all getting their turns at the helm. I like that this book kept things fairly small-scale. I’m assuming the series only builds in scope from here. ( )

Tried to read but just couldn't get past certain aspects of the setting and especially the dialog. It's a flavour of grittiness that, unlike that of Glen Cook's _The Black Company_ series, I find irritating. A blend of high and low fantasy that just doesn't work for me. I usually prefer the written version, but in this case, I much prefer the Netflix adaptation. ( )

The first 2 books (short story collections?) were great, and this isn’t a bad book but it failed to catch my attention. I do not plan to finish the series. Welp, onto the games.

Haltiain verta -opuksellaan Sapkowski siirtyy Noituri-novelleista -romaaneihin, mikä on erittäin tervetullutta – valittelinhan Viimeisen toivomuksen ja Kohtalon miekan kohdalla, kuinka vaikea on seurata novellikokoelman poukkoilevaa kronologiaa. Haltiain verta kertoo Cirin lapsuudesta noiturien, velhojen ja papittarien opissa ja sivujuonteena noituri Geraltin samanaikaisista vaiheista. Vaikutusvaltaiset tahot haluavat yhyttää Geraltin ja kumppanit selvittääkseen Cirin olinpaikan, sillä tyttö on strategisessa ja kohtalokkaassa roolissa useammalla kuin yhdellä tavalla. Ciri oppii uutta mutta velho Yenneferin kanssa lähentyessään myös palauttaa mieleensä kipeän menneisyytensä. (Lue koko arvostelu blogissani) ( )

Verily I say unto you, the era of the sword and axe is nigh, the era of the wolf's blizzard. The Time of the White Chill and the White Light is nigh, the Time of Madness and the Time of Contempt: Tedd Deireadh, the Time of End. The world will die admist frost and be reborn with the new sun. It will be reborn of the Elder blood, of Hen Ichaer, of the seed that has been sown. A seed which will not sprout but will burst into flame.
Ess'tuatha esse! Thus it shall be! Watch for the signs! What signs these shall be, I say unto you: first the earth will flow with the blood of Aen Seidhe, the Blood of Elves...

The town was in flames.
Die Stadt brannte.
Die engen Straßen, die zum Graben führten, zur ersten Terrasse, verströmten Rauch und Hitze, die Flammen verzehrten die dicht gedrängten Strohdächer, leckten an den Mauern des Schlosses. Von Westen her, vom Hafentor, drang Geschrei heran, der Lärm eines erbitterten Kampfes, die dumpfen Stöße des Rammbocks, unter denen die Mauern erbebten.

The Witcher series of books was published in English in a different order to its original Polish publication. In internal chronology, it consists of two books of short stories (published in Poland in inverse chronological order), followed by 5 novels following a linked arc. The final book written then takes place during the time of the first short story collection.
