This entry in The Witcher series ups the ante in every way. More action, more romance, more spectacle, more twists and turns. I loved it. Yen/Geralt/Ciri and their relationship remain my favorite aspect of the series.

This was an exciting one. There wasn‘t as much politics as in previous books in the series. There was a gathering of sorcerers and enchantresses, which was interesting, and we get to hear a lot more from Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri each. We also hear directly from the Nilfgaardian emperor. My complaint is that there were too many references to rape and derogatory terms to women. It‘s completely unnecessary and pulls me out of the story.

I continue to be baffled by the structure of the Witcher novels. This one builds up to a huge conflagration right in the middle, then introduces a bunch of new characters right at the end. Although the pacing is odd, the story is enjoyable.

Sapkowski reeeeeeealllly loves to bring up the title in this one.

Got the audiobook of the next Witcher book. Sapkowski loves to drop in on random people, such as royal messengers, and tell part of the story from their perspective.

One of the better books in the series so far. I am actually starting to enjoy it more, although Ciri kind of drives me nuts at times.

TheSpineView That's disappointing. I have not gotten to this one yet. 9mo
Traci1 @TheSpineView it could just be where my mood was at. I listen to these on audio, and while I love the narrator, I found myself drifting a bit. 9mo
TheSpineView @Traci1 I read the first two books of the series and was not crazy about the second. I have been debating on reading book 3. 9mo
Traci1 @TheSpineView of the 4 I've read, I feel like Last Wish was the best. I've liked each one after a little less than the one before. 9mo
TheSpineView @Traci1 oh well... maybe I will just wait a bit before I attempt the 3rd book. 9mo

"But you should act, be brave, seize life by the scruff of the neck. Believe me, little one, you should only regret inactivity, indeciveness, hesitation. You shouldn't regret actions or decisions, even if they occasionally end in sadness and regret." From Time of Contempt by Andrzej Sapkowski.

Even though I'm very slow in reading this series, I still highly enjoy them. I love the atmosphere in the stories, and of course Geralt as a silent and sturdy hero. This volume is very political, and I admit I couldn't follow everything that was happening. But I take is as Geralt does - I keep aside, but with a watchful eye on what's going on. Maybe now I'll continue the series a bit faster, but I don't think Geralt really cares. Every book has ⬇

Jari-chan its own time and place, and maybe the Witcher series is mean to be read slowly. At least by me. It felt right reading this book now, and the next one will come along, when it's the right time.

Zoned out in a couple places, just because there are pockets of army tactics being discussed and 'political intrigue' and they just don't stick when I'm reading, but the rest is incredible as always, and a growing list of characters that help me tie in events to the games.

Turns out The Witcher series is wonderfull for listening to while working. Made it through in two days while also beeing rather productive, yay! Interesting to see the main plot develop finally. Still a nice balance between conventional fantasy tropes and fresh perspectives, though there was a rather questionable consent situation in the end. Can‘t wait for book five! Also: yes, Bear with me, i just need bathtub-Cavill right now!

With the second full-length novel, the story really begins to pick up. We see where the conflict is heading and we get to see more fun characters (yay Dandelion) that we saw in the short stories. While there are the occasional monsters, so far his books are highly political tales! Loving them so far, but only have one complaint. With so many characters and nationalities, a glossary would be super helpful.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This series provides an engaging story and characters I can‘t help but enjoy. Geralt has such a different relationship with each of his companions. I also enjoyed seeing them all together for the first time in this novel. Readers will not be disappointed as their storylines begin to come together for a remarkable journey. #fantasy

The adventure continues in this wild and twisty novel. It‘s a great sequel to Blood of Elves and gives us more story. It‘s well written and a fun story. Can‘t wait to see what happens next.

Really enjoyed this one 😊 This book really digs in to more of who Ciri is and focuses more on her character development while also giving us some Dandelion and Geralt moments. And also some more Yennefer, and she is truly fascinating. I really like her in the series on Netflix and in the book. I can‘t wait to read more 😊 And here‘s my reading buddy Gus 🐶 We are about to watch the Witcher series...again 😊

4th book, 2nd novel in Witcher Series. Focus on question of neutrality in a time of war and the impact of violence and oppression on victims. Geralt investigates those tracking Ciri. Yennefer and Ciri go to island Thanedd for sorcerers conclave and all hell breaks loose. Thrilling battles, political intrigue and some interesting new characters. https://cannonballread.com/2020/03/the-time-of-contempt-the-witcher-book-2-elcic...

So I got this for 2.99 and decided even though the first book I read Blood of Elves I gave it a soso, I really wanted to see if it got better, it did some what. I love the Geralt and Ciri parts and other magical parts , but completely dislike the warring countries, those parts are wordy and confusing. So I YouTubed and did some research and there are two other short stories books that might explain somethings better,so
I will read those🤷🏼‍♀️
