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 maneuvering for position each fearing invasion from across the river each fearing their neighbours Intrigue dissent and rebelli. The person everybody was searching for in the previous book was still at large with Geralt being one of the two people who could guess the whereabouts This means everybody was still conducting the search but this time it became clear that the aim was to make sure the person in uestion is really dead just like the rumors started by Geralt stated As we all know sometimes little people can get in the way of movers and the shakers of the world and make them very much inconvenienced by just being alive and breathing This was exactly the case here A big political game went on with different parties hoping to outsmart and backstab everybody else In this climate nobody wanted any additional complications which Geralt and his prot g seems to bring despite the fact that he continued to do his damned to remain neutral Would it be a big spoiler to say he miserably failed at the endThe first half of the book looked exactly like the previous one lots of talk and behind the scene machinations but not much action Some secondary players that happened to be in the way of the mighty got removed but nothing major happened The moment I hit 50% according to my ereader I was sure I would rate this one with 3 stars as I already saw practically the same happenings in book 3 In the second half it all began innocently enough Geralt woke up in the morning in a castle and decided to play a sophisticated person So instead of peeing in the first available uiet corner of the castle yes this is what the nobility did in the Middle Ages he went looking for a real toilet The result made me gave one extra star to the rating the double crossings and back stabbings that followed would not put to shame even the true master of those in fantasy Glen Cook read his Black Company if you do not believe meMy minor complaint would be that the most interesting characters do not get enough screen time Geralt included It is not that the ones that do are boring but in this case others are exciting Anyhow after all the excitement the fallout that followed is shown in a very unusual way The last part was a little too long in my opinion but not long enough for me to lower the rating 4 stars I am very eager to start the next book of the series

The kings some sympathetic to the elvesAnd 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. This is my favorite book in the series so far Ciri and Geralt really go through some difficult changes which makes this novel all the interesting So whereas Blood of Elves sets up the idea of Ciri being at the center of courtly intrigue and politics with Geralt and Yennefer trying to protect her Time of Contempt goes deep into that same intrigue and politics with an absolute cluster of a battle in the middle of the story Though the focus is split halfway between Ciri and Geralt Ciri s tale is interesting this time around Her story manages to go through uite a lot of settings and conflicts over the course of the novel which I really enjoyed For the first half of the book things aren t happening as much as they are revealed Yet when things finally kicked off the book was impossible to put down The reader gets to spend time in a relatively central position during the inciting incident and most of the story after that up close and personal instead of the typical description narrative afterwardsAndrzej Sapkowski s writing as always is impressive Whoever did this translation took painstaking care to make sure that the result is well written and beautiful Time of Contempt is many things It is a disturbing and deeply political novel about what life might really be like in a traditional fantasy world It is a deconstruction of traditional fantasy tropes and it is a devastating critiue of the racism sexism and nationalism that have done so much damage to our world and which are casually reproduced in much traditional fantasy Yet though the book is gritty as hell it s also funny charming and intimate It s playful with the source material not dismissive of it This only makes its core pessimism all the arresting Like the last book Time of Contempt feels like simply another episode in a much larger story without any real closure But this time around you get a better idea of what s going on Everything about this book is intriguing whether it be the intricate characters the deceptively complex plot or the well crafted world There are no absolute truths and by the end of the book I can honestly say I am beautifully confused and excited for the next novel The ending is a bit strange and unexpected but I need to read the next book to properly judge Nevertheless an amazing read

    I am odds with this series The Last Wish is a million miles away from what these have become which is just generic fantasy that is badly written or translated In The Last Wish we have good battles with monsters re tellings of our own

    Ummmm These books are maybe not worth your time I'm reading them to get ready for the show coming to Netflix It's giving me great insight into the character but since I've never played the game I feel a piece is missingThis one was enjoyable than the first I wish they weren't so chopping and spaced out as I feel the first three should have been condensed into one long story I will keep chugging along but my DNF the next book
