This book felt exactly how Romanian bureaucracy is — you stay for hours on end in a queue to ask the lady at desk 3 to sign something for you and you have to go to the third floor to pay a fee for it, then after you paid the damn fee you must go back and give the little ticket attesting the fact that you paid the fee to the lady at desk 4 only to give you in exchange a declaration you need to fill out so you can go to the second floor to ask for your signature but then you have to come back to the desk 3 to ask the lady to put an official stamp on it.
In simpler words, this book was excruciating and boring and it made me question this series accuracy. View all 17 comments. I received a review copy of Season of Storms in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to Andrzej Sapkowski and Gollancz for the opportunity.
Season of Storms begins with the Witcher successfully completing a contract to eradicate the threat of a monster known as an Idr. Upon receiving payment Geralt opts to travel to Kerack where another mission may be waiting. Upon arrival at Kerack's Watchtower he is made to disarm and hand over his two legendary Witcher swords which he does begrudgingly. H I received a review copy of Season of Storms in exchange for an honest review. His first act in the City is to frequent an inn and relax with some food and wine.
Before he is able to tuck in though he is posed a question by three characters dressed in black who approached his table without a sound. Although much longer at this entry has much more in common with the short tales in both The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny than the other full-lengths in the saga. Instead of character and point of view hopping which was introduced in Blood of Elves and continued up until The Lady of the Lake, we only follow Geralt's actions here.
This is with the exception of certain interludes which include letters, a story draft, and the happenings at an auction house. The world-renowned poet and Geralt's best friend Dandelion is one of the main characters throughout this narrative and like quite a few other The Witcher tales, he just happens to randomly come across Geralt in random cities and towns all over the world without planning to.
The amount of times this happens throughout the series seems farfetched but I'm willing to forgive Sapkowski as the womanising troubadour is one the best characters in the overall story.
The majority of the ensemble here are new creations such as the mysterious fire-haired sorceress Coral and the trusty drawf friend Addario Bach. There are mentions of other characters that are present in the series that readers will know and a few surprising 'easter-egg' moments. One, in particular, you will only understand if you have completed the whole series. As mentioned, this book does work finely as a standalone, however; I wouldn't recommend reading it until a potential reader had read The Last Wish as this collection introduces the character of The Witcher well and would, therefore, heighten the enjoyment experience in Season of Storms.
After that though, it can be read at any time. Geralt, as always, has unshakable morals and his dependable horse Roach. There are many highs and lows for him here and throughout, more often than not, his luck seems to really be against him. In addition to his talents with blades, he has an encyclopedic knowledge of seemingly everything including law and magic but especially monsters.
There are a large number of different sorts of monsters dotted throughout these pages including a she-fox, werewolves and ogrotrolls. Season of Storms features demon hunts, corrupted magic, uncertainty over monarchy ascension, and a battle with a gigantic sea monster.
It's not the finest entry but it should be read by all fans of The Witcher as there is a lot to enjoy here. I devoured it in hours and loved being back in the world of The Witcher. View 1 comment. First a disclaimer: the book blurb has nothing in common with the content. They both talk about Geralt the Witcher, but this is where the similarities end. What did Geralt do most of the time in the series?
People familiar with him only through the games or not at all would foolishly say he hunted monsters. He brooded non-stop from the middle of the second book all the way to the end. I am happy? After which he was forced to First a disclaimer: the book blurb has nothing in common with the content.
After which he was forced to do some extermination and to nobody's surprise the story became interesting. On the positive side the book is Ciri-free. She was only mentioned once!!! I was fine with her when she was a cute kid, but reading about adult Ciri who was first very miserable, then became a drug-addicted robber, then became even more miserable never failed to make me equally miserable.
This is clearly author's tribute to fans. If you liked the original series you are guaranteed to like this book. If you were disappointed with it, you will find nothing groundbreaking here. As to me I was sure I rate it with 3 stars during the first third aka Geralt the Brooder. However I started having doubts about this decision when Geralt actually lifted his butt and began doing something. So 3 or 4 stars? Absence of Ciri firmly determined the rating. As to the plot: Geralt came to a tiny kingdom never mentioned in the main series.
It turned out to be a bad decision. Upon the arrival he got thrown in jail, his swords were stolen, and he almost got beaten to death by a squad of female goons guards. It turned out this was just the beginning. I never knew Geralt could be such a jerk - and he was toward a young woman for no reason whatsoever. And no, breaking up with Yennifer is not a good excuse for such behavior. View all 13 comments.
But there will always be darkness. And in that darkness there will always be Evil, in that darkness there will always be fangs and claws, murder and blood. There will always be things that go bump in the night.
And we, witchers, are the ones who bump back at them. I enjoyed reading it, of course, as it is a Witcher book. At the same time, it offered nothing new to the series, did not add anything "They say that progress illuminates the darkness.
At the same time, it offered nothing new to the series, did not add anything of value, and overall felt like it was completely unnecessary.
