I was expecting much of The Witcher. It’s the one series my sister has been telling me for years to read. And with the recent Netflix series (that I still need to watch, possibly during the social distancing of COVID-19), it was finally time to give it a try.
So, Sword of Destiny, like it predecessor The Last Witch are prequel short story collections that tie in some of the questions I’m sure people would have had about the characters in the main series. While I like short stories from time to time, I felt like it was time for me to read a full Witcher book, rather than more short stories.
So, I’m reading the series in chronological order, but haven’t decided yet if that is what works best. Either way, while I liked the stories I would have liked to see some more character development. I am still having this sort of strange feeling where I feel like I am reading a book based on a game, rather than the other way around.
Next book is full length, fingers crossed!
