Geralt is a witcher, a man whose magic powers, enhanced by long training and a mysterious elixir, have made him a brilliant fighter and a merciless assassin. Yet he is no ordinary murderer: his targets are the multifarious monsters and vile fiends that ravage the land and attack the innocent.

This is a collection of short stories, following the adventures of the hit collection THE LAST WISH. Join Geralt as he battles monsters, demons and prejudices alike…

Anthology: This book has better stories than the previous anthology, but it also feels more unbalanced. Some were really great and entertatining, others I couldn’t read them fast enough to get over them. The first anthology doesn’t have epic tales, but the quality is more stable. Overall, this second book is slightly better.

Great Cast: This time I have enjoyed the regular characters quite a lot. His romantic misadventures with Yennefer have been fun, but a bit scarce for my taste. What has been a blast to read has been the exchanges between Geralt and Ciri. I wasn’t expecting the Witcher being so charming with the little girl. Fate has chosen wisely. But there has been one character that has annoyed me a little bit: Dandelion. We know he is kind of a clown, but his attitude in some situations has rubbed me the wrong way.

Angry: Again, the stupid banner in the cover telling me this saga is now a show in Netflix. The art of the cover is SO pretty that is rather insulting that they have covered part of it with that monstrosity.
