Lists with This Book. Although you can start the series with Blood of Elves which is where the full-length novels commence, I can’t recommend enough that even though a handful of these short stories are hit-and-miss, that they will add considerable depth to the future narrative arcs.

The Last Wish featured mostly isolated stories with the Witcher tackling a certain monstrosity for a s Much like The Last Wish before, Sword of Destiny is a collection of short stories following a talented witcher called Geralt of Rivia. The Last Wish featured mostly isolated stories with the Witcher tackling a certain monstrosity for a set payment. He travels around the world to where his peculiar killing and magic techniques are needed to tackle a problem and individuals will hire him.

In the first book, apart from a couple of brief interludes, there were no recurring characters. It was solely about a certain adventure at one end of the world and then another a thousand miles away.

Sword of Destiny features a handful of main characters from the series who become more fleshed out as there presence recurs. Geralt’s friend and lady loving bard Dandelion, his mysterious sorceress love interest Yennefer and a potential child of destiny called Ciri.

If you’ve played The Witcher computer games I imagine you a familiar with these characters, the sort of missions set and the monsters the Witcher is assigned to eradicate, and how beautiful and vast this created world is. I found the stories in The Last Wish more consistent but two or three of my favourites are from this entry.

If you decide to read the short story collections first I’d truly recommend starting with The Last Wish and not Sword of Destiny. Two stories in The Witcher 1, one including Yennefer and one including a Queen and a Princess, add huge depth to the action and events that occur in this collection, especially with certain relationship complexities. The Witcher tales are exciting and addictive to say that a story can be finished in about half an hour. Sapkowski doesn’t dumb down the world and there are a plethora of complex characters and demons throughout these pages.


My favourite story is The Bounds of Reason and it features about twenty-five different well-crafted characters who set off on a mission to kill a wounded dragon. I found this narrative exceptional, unpredictable, thrilling with a hell of a twist at the end. This sets Sword of Destiny up brilliantly. I won’t go into the details of the stories too much as it might approach spoiler territory. I will confirm that these tales feature many fantasy races as well as mermaids and underwater warriors, showdowns with sorcerers, a group trying to trace a doppleganger, and also meeting Ciri.

It features monster hunting of course but not as much and as frequent as The Last Wish. Each The Last Wish story played like a level on the Witcher games. These are less standalone and cleverly building up for the full narrative which will start with Blood of Elves.

Eternal Flame and A Share of Ice were very average. The final story Something More I really struggled with initially. It follows two timelines as Geralt in a fevered state and I sometimes got confused where and when we were.

If it was a full-length story I wouldn’t have finished it but I did and I’m glad I fought through as the ending is highly satisfying with setting up what can possible happen in the next outings.

I decided to read all of the Witcher books before the TV series is released and I am glad that I have taken on this venture. I’ve read the first two books within four days and I can’t wait to move on further. I often struggle with short stories but I can recommend these highly. View all 6 comments. This is a second collection of short stories featuring Geralt of Rivia. If I understand correctly it was written before The Last Wish, but chronologically comes after that one.

*New Polish Book* A. Sapkowski: Wiedźmin – Miecz Przeznaczenia | eBay

The stories of this anthology are longer and less funny although one of them can be considered to be entirely humorous. Przeznaczeniw most of the people already know Geralt is a witcher. This means he hunts monsters for living. He is also considered to be a mutant by many as his training included undergoing some chemical herbs and This is a second collection of short sapkwski featuring Geralt of Rivia.

He is also considered to be a mutant by many as his training included undergoing some chemical herbs and magical treatment that left him not-quite-human. So what does the guy do in this anthology? He is being lovesick – he is madly in love with Yennefer, he does his damned to escape what he thinks is his destiny, he follows his Codex which does not allow him to kill intelligent monsters.

Have you notice something is missing in this description? Exactly, the monster hunter does everything, but hunting monsters.

This makes even one of the characters wonder how the heck he made his living with his nonexistent work-related income; it feels kind of like this: Unsurprisingly Geralt is broke most of the time. I would like to talk about the love part of the book. The one without which the whole genre would not exists at all?


It is a standard situation when two people are deeply in love with each other, but both of them keep creating obstacles that prevent them from being together, knowing exactly what they are doing. I mean imagine two people meet each other, fall in love, get married right away within a couple of pages, and fall into a standard married routine. Who in the right mind would read such a boring book? Geralt and Yennefer is exactly such couple.

The troubles they go to NOT be with each other boggle the mind. As you might guess these situations feel a little old. They felt old during Shakespeare time actually.

At least in the Great Bard’s tale it were families that kept the kids separated. It was not a bad anthology despite my criticism, but it did resulted in a lower rating by half a star. I am also willing to cut some slack due to a fact that it was the first written installment of the series. The next book promptly goes to my to-read shelf.

Okayso there’s some really gooderr, what’s the word for this? Oh, yes, I remember now, “stuff” is the technical term I’m looking for.

So yes, there is definitely some good stuff here: Alas, unfortunately and stuff, sufficient to make this short story collection as yummilicious as The Last Wish this wasn’t. Most of the stories begin stupendously enoughI’ll give you that, przezhaczenia Little Barnacles. One opens with a basiliskfree warrior women and crayfish.

Which got me all excite because coming across my freshwater cousins in books always makes my exoskeleton tingle and stuff. Another story begins with tentaclesserrated claws and mountains of exploding trash. Which brought back fond memories of my past life as Marjory the Trash Heap. Then there is the story that kicks off with a delightfully capricious mermaid and later introduces super, um, friendly sea creatures.

Andrzem then the story that starts with most, um, welcoming monsters. Oh, and let’s not forget the one with the dryads! So, you see, all the stories in this collection begin quite gloriously indeed. Because too many pointless ramblings and endless dialogues, not enough blood-shedding. Because too much allergy-inducing relationship dramanot enough action. And don’t get me started on Yennefer. Actually, no, please DO get me started on her.
