Blood of Elves : Andrzej Sapkowski :

Anon from UK I want to say only one thing. This is clearly not to be taken lightly. This is a very slow, character driven tale where the enjoyment is taken from world-building escapism.

Now Geralt needs to provide the protection. They’re good, and you’ll thank yourself for it later when you’re not trying to decipher the backstory behind this one. Queen Calanthe, mortally wounded, commits suicide and her granddaughter, Cirillacalled Ciri and nicknamed the “Lion Cub of Cintra” manages to flee from the burning capital city. For more than a hundred years humans, dwarves, gnomes and elves lived together in relative peace.


They are aware that the Emperor is looking for Ciri to marry her morganatically and thus to gain the rights to Cintra, which is now under Nilfgaardian occupation.

Return to Book Page. Sapkowski’s tongue is often firmly in cheek, but he also writes very dark and very emotional scenes–all of this together creates some very endearing characters. Poetic and lovely, and not pathetic enough to become angsty and melodramatic. A film by the same title was compiled from excerpts of the television series but both have been critical and box office failures.

The Andrzdj Books of Yet, beneath the hard exterior — undoubtedly caring and sympathetic–exactly the kind of complex, independent female character that male writers often have trouble writing. These involving characters, along with the promising young figure of Ciri, are what really keep the pages turning so fast.

Blood Of Elves by Andrzej Sapkowski book review

Told you gErAlT was nothing like Geralt. As you know if you have read my reviews before I am not about long reviews with synopsis and spoilers. This is clearly not to be taken lightly.

Moraine is an Aes Sedai, a magic Ciri’s stay in Ellander is still haunted by disturbing dreams elvess the arrival of Yennefer, who starts educating her in the ways of magic. The Witcher The Witcher 2: So yeah, I had high hopes for this series, but it was a total fail for me.


The general concept is that Geralt, a Witcher created through elixirs and brutal mutilation as a child, hunts and kills monsters for pay.

Add 3 Items to Cart. For some reason, my wife and I were possessed by the title and now run around the house doing some ridiculous call and response thing- Me from downstairs, yelling black metal voice: The world has fallen into war.

Blood of Elves

More about Andrzej Sapkowski This is far from the truth, of course. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

The magic folk, druids, priests who populate the book never grab me and I just couldn’t get into the story. An interesting side theme to Blood of Elves is racism, and more specifically, the racism that comes from imperialism.

I’m gutted we don’t see more of one of my favourite characters, the womanising troubadour Dandelion. I had to skip most pages.
