Book Description : 

Geralt the Witcher has fought monsters and demons across the land, but even he may not be prepared for what is happening to his world. The kings and armies are maneuvering for position, each fearing invasion from across the river, each fearing their neighbours more. Intrigue, dissent and rebellion are on all sides.

The Elves and other non-humans are still suffering under decades of repression, and growing numbers join the commando units hidden deep in the forest, striking at will and then dissolving into the trees. The Magicians are fighting amongst themselves, some in the pay of the kings, some sympathetic to the elves.

And against this backdrop of fear and contempt Geralt and his lover Yennefer must protect Ciri, orphaned heir and sought by all sides. For the prophecy rests on her, and whether she lives or dies she has the power to save the world - or perhaps end it..  

After reading previous books, this book I really don't know why felt like a huge filler. There was barely any story progress here. It was same annoying confusing story telling going on here. By far the nomenclature of everything has annoyed me the most. I feel that would be more of a personal preference.

Ciri is on her journey, Geralt is on his journey, Yennefer feels like is forced in between along with a ton of characters. I don't know what dryads and elves are doing. Dandelion is as usual lucky one who is saved from every situation without any scratches.

I am really doubtful whether I'll pick up books further in this series. I really want to know what happens ahead after the wonderful introduction of Geralt but here it feels overloaded with ciri.

I really would not recommend this book unless and until you want to finish reading this series before Netflix adaptations come out.
