Az emberek, törpök, manók és tündék több mint száz esztendon keresztül éltek békében egymás mellett. De ennek a békének vége, és a fajok ismét egymás ellen – és maguk ellen – harcolnak. Ebben a viharos idoben születik egy gyermek, akire a világ összes vajákja várt. Ciri a Cintrai Nostényoroszlán, Calanthe királyné unokája. Különös hatalmakkal és még különösebb sorssal van megáldva, mert egy jövendölés Lángnak hívja ot: lángnak, amely örökre megváltoztatja a világot – jó vagy rossz irányba… Ríviai Geralt, a vaják magával viszi Cirit a vajákok központjába, de Ciri egyáltalán nem hasonlít a többi tanítványhoz.

Késobb azt beszélték, a férfi északról érkezett, a Kötélverok kapuján keresztül. Bár nem volt idos, a haja szinte teljesen fehér volt. Amikor levetette köpenyét, kiderült, hogy a vállán egy szíjon kard függ. Nem volt ebben semmi szokatlan, Vizimában szinte mindenki fegyverrel járt, de azért senki sem hordott pallost a hátán mint valami íjat vagy tegezt. A fehér hajút a királyi felhívás vezette a városba; a Vizima lakosait gyötro striga visszaváltoztatásáért járó háromezer oren jutalom. Ilyen idok jártak. Régen csak a farkasok üvöltöttek az erdokben, mostanra mindenféle mocsadék elszaporodott – akárhová nézel: lidércek, strigák, ocsmány hódfajzatok, baziliszkuszok, ördegek, mifenék, vilák és vízbefúltak. Ide már nem elég az egyszeru varázslat vagy nyárkaró. Ide hozzáérto kell. És a messzi Ríviából érkezett idegen épp ilyen szakember. O Geralt, a vaják, a mágia és a kard mestere, egy mutáns, akit arra teremtettek, hogy megorizze a világban az erkölcsi és természeti rendet.

Time of Contempt

Time of Contempt

Author: Andrzej Sapkowski Format: Paperback Release Date: 23/01/2014

Geralt the Witcher has fought monsters and demons across the land, but even he may not be prepared for what is happening to his world. The kings and armies are manoeuvring for position, each fearing invasion from across the river, each fearing their neighbours more. Intrigue, dissent and rebellion are on all sides. The Elves and other non-humans are still suffering under decades of repression, and growing numbers join the commando units hidden deep in the forest, striking at will and then dissolving into the trees. The Magicians are fighting amongst themselves, some in the pay of the kings, some sympathetic to the elves. And against this backdrop of fear and contempt Geralt and his lover Yennefer must protect Ciri, orphaned heir and sought by all sides. For the prophecy rests on her, and whether she lives or dies she has the power to save the world - or perhaps end it.

Blood of Elves

Author: Andrzej Sapkowski Format: Paperback Release Date: 21/05/2009

Geralt, the witcher of Rivia, is back - and this time he holds the fate of the whole land in his hands ... For more than a hundred years, humans, dwarves, gnomes and elves lived together in relative peace. But times have changed, the uneasy peace is over and now the races once again fight each other - and themselves: dwarves are killing their kinsmen, and elves are murdering humans and elves, at least those elves who are friendly to humans ... Into this tumultuous time is born a child for whom the witchers of the world have been waiting. Ciri, the granddaughter of Queen Calanthe, the Lioness of Cintra, has strange powers and a stranger destiny, for prophecy names her the Flame, one with the power to change the world - for good, or for evil ... Geralt, the witcher of Rivia, has taken Ciri to the relative safety of the Witchers' Settlement, but it soon becomes clear that Ciri isn't like the other witchers. As the political situation grows ever dimmer and the threat of war hangs almost palpably over the land, Geralt searches for someone to train Ciri's unique powers. But someone else has an eye on the young girl, someone who understand exactly what the prophecy means - and exactly what Ciri's power can do. This time Geralt may have met his match.
