Now a Netflix original series!
Trapped in a world ruled by the Elves, separated from Geralt and her destiny, Ciri will need all her training as a fighter and sorceress to return to her own time in the fifth book of the NYT bestselling series.
After walking through the portal in the Tower of Swallows while narrowly escaping death, Ciri finds herself in a completely different world... an Elven world. She is trapped with no way out. Time does not seem to exist and there are no obvious borders or portals to cross back into her home world.
But this is Ciri, the child of prophecy, and she will not be defeated. She knows she must escape to finally rejoin the Witcher and his companions - and also to try to conquer her worst nightmare. Leo Bonhart, the man who chased, wounded and tortured Ciri, is still on her trail. And the world is still at war.

Each story of Geralt the Witcher builds upon previous books. One of the most amazing characters ever conceived. Sometimes you don't want to turn the next page, afraid everything is lost, but then the sheer valor, honesty and strength of Geralt and Ciri overcome the monsters, both the fantastical kind. And those that dwell in the hearts of men.
