The story of Ciri and Geralt, the Witcher, continue in this story. Most of the story is told by Ciri as she hides and recuperates in a hermit's hut in the middle of a marsh. She is being hunted by bounty hunters and sorceresses and Geralt is chasing her to help his ward.

Ciri is a 16-year old girl who has been under Geralt's protection and has been training to be a witcher even though she would not undergo the mutation that Geralt had. She is the descendant of a powerful elf and has demonstrated remarkable abilities. The Emperor Emrhys wants to marry her. The Lodge of Sorceresses wants to harness her energy. Everyone wants a piece of her.

The story flashes between live action and characters retelling their parts which keeps the reader on their toes. Luckily the focus is on the date of the equinox so the reader is always aware of where in the timeline she is.

As an aside, the expansion pack of the wonderful Witcher III video game was just released this week so I have been totally immersed in this world, only interrupted by pesky work. The differences in the story lines don't bother me much (in the game Emrhys is Ciri's father, not suitor, but just as interested in getting her back in his palace to sit on the throne).

The next episode is slated to be released in the summer of 2017 and I, for one, will be anxiously waiting for it. ( )

Epigraph
Information from the German Common Knowledge. Edit to localize it to your language.
Sie kamen nach Dun Dȃre in grabesschwarzer Nacht,
wo man die Hexerin verborgen wähnte,
Umzingelten das Dorf von allen Seiten rings,
Damit sie ihnen nicht entkommen könnte.
So wollten sie sie fassen in grabesschwarzer Nacht,
Doch konnte ihre Tücke nichts erreichen.
Es lagen anderntags, eh bleich die Sonne stieg,
Auf kältestarrer Straße dreißig Leichen.

Die Morität von den erschrecklichen Dingen, welche sich in der Nacht auf Saovine in Dun Dȃre zugetragen haben
