Book Review: The Time of Contempt (Witcher #2) by Andrzej Sapkowski

Publishing Date: 1995

Genre: Fantasy

Rating: 3.8/5

Review: This follows the Blood of Elves” story line with Ciri growing in command of her abilities with Yen as her tutor.

Rendered in exquisite detail, the visual landscape is what sets this novel apart from the others. The side stories that support the main story line, as well as the supporting characters really bolster the novel in a compelling direction.  The plots of Kings and Wizards creates a unique friction as you don’t know who is for or against our heroes. There are some deaths that are a minor fail, as so much emotional content was invested in them. Their deaths detracted more from the novel than creating a reactionary response, like justified vengeance via martyrdom.

You’re in deep now, so no turning back. Next up: “Baptism of Fire.
