Publisher's Summary

Geralt the Witcher battles monsters, demons and prejudices alike in Sword of Destiny, the second collection of adventures in Andrzej Sapkowski’s groundbreaking epic fantasy series that inspired the Netflix show and the hit video games.

Geralt is a Witcher, a man whose magic powers, enhanced by long training and a mysterious elixir, have made him a brilliant fighter and a merciless hunter. Yet he is no ordinary killer: His targets are the multifarious monsters and vile fiends that ravage the land and attack the innocent.

Sword of Destiny is the follow up to The Last Wish, and together they are the perfect introduction to a one of a kind fantasy world.

Heartwarming

Sword of Destiny is a must read for anyone that is planning on playing Witcher 3: Wild Hunt as it serves as a great introduction for the main characters. Also, a brilliant performance once again by the talented Peter Kenny.

Enthralling, but the characters...

Love the stories, but so many characters are just awful people, even main characters.

Insane

This whole series is one of the best I’ve read or listened too, next to lord of the rings and the song of ice and fire it’s probably my favourite. Amazing story teller.
