Blood of Elves
This book really takes us into the world of The Witcher, the previous book was stories, and not a complete novel. This book is the actualy start of the series.
The Kingdom of Cintra is invaded by the Nilfgaardians, Geralt was promosed the son/deaugther of their King & Queen. But the kingdom is in havoc, the forces that invaded the country burned & raped every one they found, and Ciri(Cirilla) runs away. Soldiers help's her escape but they each die and she is let alone.
The book, is great, we get closer to the stories of the game The Wild Hunt, and leanr more of the beginnings.
My only regret, having played the game before reading the books, and therefore knowing the end. But the path is still worth being read.
