Holy shit! This was really good!
It might actually be my favorite in the series so far.

Even though the story expanded a lot more than in the previous books, it feels a lot more intimate, probably because as a reader I'm more familiar with the characters and their journeys.

I loved Ciri's arc the most if I'm being honest, her struggle to fit in with a band of misfits was very interesting!

Overall this was a delight to go through and I'm excited to continue with the series. ( )

To be continued. ( )

The book is not bad, far from it, only..... only to be honest nothing REALLY happening in it. Gerald and his company are marching, Ciri and Yennefer are in the book only because one can’t leave them out. The whole book is a 350 pages long intermission which is somehow is still able to be entertaining. ( )

After healing from injuries sustained in the last installment, the Witcher Geralt heads south to continue his search for Ciri. War has ravaged the land, but Geralt gathers some new traveling companions (Regis, Milva, Zoltan and Cahir), who add spice, humor, tension to his quest, but also resources (besides Dandelion's lute) to defend against marauders, to protect orphans of the war, especially women and children, deal with greedy peasants, and escape the clutches of adversaries. Meanwhile, a group of women are gathering their own resources to help locate Ciri, who they believe can help create a new order. Their motives are highly uncertain and their alliance so very fragile. Finally, Ciri relationship with the Rats and her protector begins to wane as Ciri thinks she needs to make something more out of her life. I was disappointed in the number of unnecessary characters, the seeming lack of a coherent plot, and the negligible progress in the developing the story in this third book in the series. ( )

This review is also featured on Behind the Pages: Baptism of Fire

With the fall of the Wizard Council, Ciri has disappeared, rumored to be captured by Nilfgaard. Near-death from his injuries, Geralt is unable to search for her. As he recovers with the dryads the world enters a time of political upheaval. War breaks out and the sorcerers are left to pick up the pieces of their order.

Baptism of Fire takes a step back from the witcher’s storyline for the majority of the book. As Geralt lies injured and recovering, Sapkowski gives a detailed overview of the world’s politics. I am not one for politics and had a difficult time remembering all the people mentioned as conspirators and spies. The story also came to a stand for the majority of the book as all the politics were divulged.

Of course, when the focus turned to Geralt, the pace picked up. Being injured he is limited in his actions, but it also gave time for readers to see how he is changing. And with the world growing darker, the comparison to himself and the humans around him is clear to see. Even injured he will not stand to see the innocent torn down. Sapkowski also made sure to give Geralt entertaining traveling companions. Dandelion is always a joy to read on-page, and a few dwarves were thrown into the mix as well.

I was surprised to hear the title of the book said multiple times in the story. At one point baptism of fire was used three times in one paragraph. I’m not sure what the point of this was. The meaning behind the title was explained well enough the first time it was used. So much of this book pointed to it being filler. At one point the entire history of Ciri’s bloodline is even explained. If I had not invested so much time in this series already, and knew how good it could be, I may have DNFed this book.

I know this series has potential and can be an entertaining read. I still have hopes for the next book to be worthwhile. I love Geralt’s character, and I can’t wait to see what Ciri’s ultimate destiny will be. ( )
