Now a Netflix original series!

A deadly coup within the Wizard's Guild leaves the Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, gravely injured, and his ward Ciri missing in the third book of the NYT bestselling series that inspired the blockbuster video games.

The Wizards Guild has been shattered by a coup and, in the uproar, Geralt was seriously injured. The Witcher is supposed to be a guardian of the innocent, a protector of those in need, a defender against powerful and dangerous monsters that prey on men in dark times.

But now that dark times have fallen upon the world, Geralt is helpless until he has recovered from his injuries.

While war rages across all of the lands, the future of magic is under threat and those sorcerers who survive are determined to protect it. It's an impossible situation in which to find one girl — Ciri, the heiress to the throne of Cintra — until a rumor places her in the Niflgaard court, preparing to marry the Emperor.

Injured or not, Geralt has a rescue mission on his hands.

making new friends makes the witcher more human then just a mutant. He evolves as a more caring individual that is willing to help others then just going through life as if no one else means anything.

Great companion story involving your favorite witcher. Some memorable new characters and some of the most engaging dialogue I've read in Sapkowski's books yet. Great read.

Baptism by Fire is truly an apt name for this novel! Geralt's world has been thrown into even more turmoil. The sorcerers and sorceresses at each others throats and nations' plotting and warfare are interfering with Geralt's attempts at locating his daughter Ciri. With both friends and fiends helping and hindering Geralt's quest, this novel is captivating in every sense of the word. Any fan of fantasy will enjoy the Witcher series, especially fans of the game.
