    Summary

    This series is effectively one long story arc, which takes place 10 years after the events of Witcher-The Wild Hunt. Following the main characters of the games in a multi-pov style, the story delves into the politics of the continent post the Nilfgaardian invasion of the north. Ciri, having chosen a life as a witcher, is called back by urgent news to the capital of Nilfgaard. Pairings will change slightly over time, centrally ending up as Geralt/Emyhr. Adequately described as "slow-burn", one key intention of the series is to follow a natural progression of their relation through various stages, rather than a "fuck or die", magical setup, or political plot. The story also thematises the gen relations between Ciri and Emhyr, Ciri and Geralt, as well as Yennefer and other key characters from the games.

    Summary

    Geralt killed the last graveir, the smell of putrid death in his nose and his shoulder aching from near constant use. He felt like he hadn’t slept in a month. And the dead kept coming.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Geralt realizes that with the Witchers becoming fewer and no more being made, vampires will be a problem, though really they were always a large threat to humanity. He speaks to Emhyr, the emperor, and thus over the course of the year he and various military people Emhyr sets him up with create a training regime that is short but effective for small battalions of the emperor’s army to fight different sorts of vampires; and the regime is made standard, and taught to all two million of the troops, though they call it a regime for fighting necrophages, to be covert. After a few months it is refined and bettered, and also plans are made to continue to refine it regularly. One higher vampire is taken down and destroyed by thirty regular men, and the vampires begin to realize what a threat humanity may be. Emhyr arranges to single out all the vampires they’ve found in his court for a gathering, and gives them an ultimatum to spread to the others. They must no longer be a law to themselves, uncaring of their impact on humans, but join society and follow laws, or they may choose to be hunted down. Geralt is sure the war will be won, and also says that Witchers are dying out because they’re no longer needed; humanity’s strength is in working together, and in doing so they will be able to protect themselves from monsters as the Witchers have protected them before. Slightly thoughtful, calmish/deliberate tone, somewhat friendly, well written, intriguing/rather interesting concept, good characterization.

    Summary

    He hadn’t come here with a contract. He’d come here to get the faces out of his head: the bloodless dead sprawled in heaps through the streets of Beauclair, the morning after the rampage Detlaff had unleashed; the blank eyes of the boy in the orphanage tilting his head to let Orianna drink from his throat, with the lullaby she’d been singing him still hanging in the air.

    Wasn’t working that well so far.

    Summary

    Emhyr was looking at him for once, with a strange expression. “I have misjudged you,” he said, sounding irritated actually: how dare Geralt surprise him.

    “I get that a lot,” Geralt said.
