  • Loving Ciri's Storyline

    Another epic, brutal adventure! I knew going in that this wasn't going to be a series full of sunshine and rainbows, but it definitely took a darker turn for most of the book, especially when it came to Yennefer and Ciri's storylines. More on that later. All the storylines were great, but Ciri's was my favourite. It was unforgiving, and even when I cringed, I had to admit that I was compelled to follow her adventure and was cheering for her to escape the villains. And this book did not skimp on the ruthlessness of its villains. While there wasn't a whole lot of Yennefer or Triss in this book, their moments were strong and something I wanted more of. Geralt's storyline and character arc were also really good, and I loved his interactions with most of the characters, especially Regis and Cahir. I truly look forward to seeing more of those characters. One thing that was really difficult to read through was the violence toward the female characters. Sure, the men had some battles and tension, but all the worst tortures and battles and struggles happened to the female characters. While I'm all for female characters overcoming strife and adversity, but this seemed like a bit too much. That said, I was glad the ending happened the way it did and that certain people got what they deserved. It was a bit of an effort to get there (this series looooooves to take its sweet, sweet time in getting to certain plot points, and randomly switching settings and adding side stories that have no relevance to the main plot), but it was ultimately worth the effort. I'm really looking forward to the next book. I need to know the fates of these great characters!

  • Quantos livros famosos esta série já inspirou e não sabemos?

    Eu nunca fui fã de livros que tentam criar um diálogo entre a fantasia e um período que se assemelha ao que chamamos de Medieval. Sempre considerei as histórias muito parecidas umas com as outras e, de certa forma, previsíveis. Por que? Bom, alguns elementos nunca ficam de fora deste gênero: sexo "explícito" (embora descrito, apenas), descrições detalhadas de torturas e tudo mais. Embora a série Witcher conte com todos estes elementos, o que não é um problema, o enredo levanta questões muito mais interssantes do que "o quão a humanidade pode ser violenta" ou "quão habilidosos e incríveis são determinados guerreiros". Em "A Torre da Andorinha", o que acompanhamos é simplesmente o desenvolvimento natural de emoções humanas. Ciri, até então vivendo a excitação de sua adolescência, se depara com graves questionamentos a respeito de sua conduta nos últimos anos e, acima de tudo, passa por mais experiências traumatizantes que, como a lembra seu novo mentor, tendem a quebrá-la e não torná-la experiente. Provavelmente, esta é a primeira vez desdequg ela se juntou aos "Ratos" em que ela não agiu sem a repreensão de uma figura que ao mesmo tempo parece querer protegê-la e evitar desastres. Geralt se mostra cada vez mais impaciente e talvez até impotente em sua busca por Ciri, mas acaba tendo de aceitar o rumo de suas viagens e o rumo de sua personalidade, cada vez menos parecida com a de um Bruxo. Honestamente, gostaria de falar mais, mas não posso. Aproveitem o livro!

  • Best of the series thus far

    Intricately written, with the author using points of view displaced throughout the time line of the plot to tie together the story masterfully. Highly recommended.

  • An excellent series

    I am reading the series in order and just finished this book, not my favourite but very enjoyable. The series reminds me Lord of the Rings but only in some respects.

    Thanks for your feedback!
