The Time of Contempt

The Time of Contempt

Now a Netflix original series!

To protect his ward, Ciri, Geralt of Rivia sends her away from the home of the Witchers to train with the sorceress Yennefer. But all is not well within the Wizard’s Guild in the second book of the New York Times bestselling series that inspired the Netflix show and the hit video games.

Geralt is a Witcher: guardian of the innocent; protector of those in need; a defender, in dark times, against some of the most frightening creatures of myth and legend. His task, now, is to protect Ciri. A child of prophecy, she will have the power to change the world for good or for ill — but only if she lives to use it.

Andrzej Sapkowski, winner of the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement award, started an international phenomenon with his Witcher series

Look out for The Tower of Fools, book one of Andrzej Sapkowski’s Hussite Trilogy, coming in October 2020!
