Book Review: Blood of Elves (Witcher #1) by Andrzej Sapkowski

Publishing Date: 1995

Genre: Fantasy

Rating: 4.5/5

Review: This narrative follows the Witcher, Ciri, Dandelion and Yen in a full length, one story line, novel. Assorted factions of both the evilly and not so evilly kind, vie to possess Ciri, the pivotal chosen one on a field of destiny.

It seems the translation issues are ironed out as this progressed without a hiccup. The lack of detail on the monsters is resolved in this installment yet the focus has shifted to “The Golden Child” and the machinations therein. War and unrest are slowly building in concert with Ciri’s growing awareness and ability which makes for constant movement in an ever changing world.  As usual this author’s use of the descriptive helps build a visual reference that is quite compelling.

The novel ends abruptly so you can order the next.
