Each book in the series has been written in a different style. This books framing device was particularly interesting, as the story is told from the perspective of various characters recalling the events of the past year. A new character is presenting her testimony before a Nilfgaardian court, and Ciri is revealing the tragic events of the year to an elderly hermit. Each book in the series has grown more severe, mature, and tragic. There were parts of this book that were difficult for me to read as a result of it. I adored this book though, it is my favorite of the series so far, and I couldn't be more excited to see how the original series resolves in the next book.

I thought this was another great work by Sapkowski continuing the Witcher's story after the events in Baptism of Fire. Most of this book however was from Ciri's pespective rather than Geralt's and it really reveals just how much Ciri has changed since the beginning. It also dawned on me when it is mentioned in book that witchers cannot use magic without their witcher medallions that it has been a while since we have seen Geralt use magic or hunt mosters like he did in the original books.

Honestly, it's not the best in the series. It ended okay but is easily the weakest of the Witcher series so far. This book is about a 40% Witcher and 60% Ciri novel. Way too much history filler about the background of the Witcher and Ciri storeys.
