Hello, my lovely readers!
We slowly drawing closer to the end of the Witcher series by Sapkowski. After the previous novel was rather irritating, let’s see if The Tower of the Swallow is able to reel me back in!
The Plot (according to Goodreads):
The world has fallen into war. Ciri, the child of prophecy, has vanished. Hunted by friends and foes alike, she has taken on the guise of a petty bandit and lives free for the first time in her life. But the net around her is closing. Geralt, the Witcher, has assembled a group of allies determined to rescue her. Both sides of the war have sent brutal mercenaries to hunt her down. Her crimes have made her famous. There is only one place left to run. The tower of the swallow is waiting…
YES! Sapkowski did it. This novel is wonderfully exciting and finally stuff is happening.
First of all, I like how he presents the story to us. Ciri is talking to an old hermit recounting what happened to her. So, we get bits of her (kind of) being stuck with him interspersed with her story. It’s nice!Continue reading
