Description

NOW A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES
 
A deadly coup within the Wizard's Guild leaves the Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, gravely injured, and his ward Ciri missing in the third novel of Andrzej Sapkowski's New York Times bestselling series that inspired the hit Netflix show and the blockbuster video games. 
 
The Wizards Guild has been shattered by a coup and, in the uproar, Geralt was seriously injured.

The Witcher is supposed to be a guardian of the innocent, a protector of those in need, a defender against powerful and dangerous monsters that prey on men in dark times. But now that dark times have fallen upon the world, Geralt is helpless until he has recovered from his injuries.

While war rages across all of the lands, the future of magic is under threat and those sorcerers who survive are determined to protect it. It's an impossible situation in which to find one girl—Ciri, the heiress to the throne of Cintra—until a rumor places her in the Niflgaard court, preparing to marry the Emperor.

Injured or not, Geralt has a rescue mission on his hands.

Look out for The Tower of Fools, book one of Andrzej Sapkowski's Hussite Trilogy, available now!

    I have read through The Last Wish, Sword of Destiny, A Season of Storms, Blood of Elves, and Time of Contempt. Every collection of short stories and each novel are fantastic in their own right, but for me, Baptism of Fire is the best of the series that I've read so far. As a fan of the Witcher games, I was overjoyed by the introductions of a couple of supporting characters in Baptism of Fire, the evolution of Geralt's personality, and how he reluctantly overcomes his lone wolf nature, finally accepting the help of others all devoted to a single cause. A highly recommended read.
