    1. This book signifies a sharp departure from the previous two. The first and second ones were collections of short stories mostly told from Geralt the Witcher POV. This time this is a full-length novel with multiple POVs. Actually we only see Geralt's POV in just one chapter - and a shortish one too. In my opinion the book still shows its origins in short story format as the transitions between the chapters are mostly not continuous. Instead they start with a jump in time to give a flashback to co [...]

    3. Geralt of The Last Wish, where art thou?!Do I need to call the puny human authorities and tell them to issue an AMBER alert? Have the obnoxious aliens abducted you again, as I suspect they did in book 2? Or is it that the Evil Russians™ are holding you hostage until I surrender my East Siberian Sea dominion? That very well could be. The Fluffy Siberian Bunnies (FSB™) can get bloody shrimping devious like that sometimes. Then again, I don't think that this is what happened here. You know what [...]

    4. This review can be found on Amaranthine Reads.Considering how well-written and quick-paced the short story prequel collection The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski was, this was ridiculously disappointing and underwhelming. We have the same characters as was to be found in The Last Wish, and we had their personalities expanded and explored further, but we had none of the excitement or fantasy that was found there.Blood of Elves is very slow and very closed-off. We spend far too much time in one pla [...]

    5. For anyone who's played The Witcher games, or anyone who has not but is interested in dark fantasy, I encourage you to consider reading The Last Wish, which is the first of The Witcher books, an anthology of short stories. Read it before this, and Sword of Destiny too. They're good, and you'll thank yourself for it later when you're not trying to decipher the backstory behind this one. The Blood of Elves is the first full-length novel in the series, and I was not disappointed. It's even made it [...]

    6. I loved it like I knew I would. It was well worth the wait, and I can not wait until the next installment. For some reason, my wife and I were possessed by the title and now run around the house doing some ridiculous call and response thing-Me(from downstairs, yelling black metal voice): "BLOOD OF ELVES"Her (from upstairs, shrieking black metal voice): "BLLLLLLLLLLOOOOD OF EELLLVVVVEEES"There are worse reactions a book can inspire.

    7. 4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2015/07/01/aI remember being thrilled when I discovered that The Witcher saga by Andrzej Sapkowski was available in audio format. As a big fan of the video games which were adapted from this series, I was of course interested in reading the books, but as waiting for the English translation from its original Polish already required a bit of patience, I never really dared hope that the audiobooks would be coming too.As of this writing though, English [...]

    8. Very enjoyable read. Nothing huuuge happens in the book, its mostly focussd on Ciri and her training. But still the world and the characters are epic so its just good to be reading about them. Relaxing even haha. Anyway a war is coming up and a bit of training is deff necessary. I mean I do want if Ciri becomes this crazy ass whipping chick to be believable. And this book is just the beginning and a small part of a bigger journey.

    9. I "feel" (note the use of the word "feel" rather than "think") I should (have) like(ed) this book better. The plot sounds very interesting. The girl Ciri, child of promise and prophecy (yes a common motif in fantasy and folklore) who was promised to the Witcher before she was born. (Evil faeries and so on used to claim that promise). The story of her "education", training, change and all the people around who want to protect or use her. But I just found the book a sort of yawner. It opens with a [...]

    10. I jumped right into this after reading "The Last Wish" expecting something similar in terms of pacing and structure. Instead this picked up a dangling thread from one of the short stories in the previous book and wove an epic fantasy. I did feel that I needed a map to keep all of the little countries and their relations to each other, and maybe even a diagram with all the rulers and their relations to each other, but the important ones were easy enough to follow. To me it felt like Ciri was real [...]

    11. Forma koja opisuje sagu se još jednom promenila, te sada pratimo nastavak priče kao roman. Iako mi je do sada najbolje legla forma kratkih priča, moram da priznam da je podjednako zanimljivo čitati nastavak u klasičnom maniru. Pribojavala sam se da će tempo pripovedanja opasti i da će se saga, poput nekih drugih priča iz žanra epske fantastike, razvuči u moru nepotrebnih opisa. Međutim, Sapkovski nastavlja u identičnom ritmu i piše odličan nastavak sage.Geralt, veštac iz Rivije, o [...]

    14. Today I will be reviewing Blood of Elves (The Witcher) by Andrzej SapkowskiI want to start off by saying I am NOT a gamer and know nothing of the video games. So if you want to talk to me about the games, sorry! Nothing against gamers, its just not my thing. I know the games were based on these books, and are very popular, but that is as far as my knowledge goes.I have seen many people say how great these books are, and that they are very Sword and Sorcery, Conan Esq pulpy fantasy, which is tota [...]

    15. Mucho mejor que los dos anteriores. La historia es narrada desde diferentes puntos de vista, con capítulos que siguen a Jaskier, Yennefer, Geralt y Ciri; también comienza a quedar más claro cómo funciona la magia y otros aspectos relacionados con los brujos. A pesar de que está muy bueno, se lee rápido y no le falta momentos cargados de acción y humor, considero que este libro sirve de "puente" entre los relatos de los primeros libros y el resto de la saga. La estoy pasando bárbaro con e [...]

    16. Blood of Elves is the first full-length novel of the Witcher franchise. Strangely, it was translated into English as the second novel despite the second anthology, Sword of Destiny, having a huge role in setting up this novel's events. How huge? Well, about sixty-percent of the story deals with the aftermath of the Nilfgaard invasion of the North. The Nilfgaard invasion of the North happens in Sword of Destiny. The rest of the novel deals with Geralt's adoption of Ciri, which is kind of importan [...]

    17. La saga de Geralt comienza a ser una historia en lugar de pequeñas historias cortas. Esta novela te deja conocer más a los personajes. A Geralt, quién tiene que cambiar sus pensamientos sobre el destino; a Yennefer y a Ciri, dos personas que tienen más unión de la que parece todo ello en un contexto bien labrado y con una historia que consigue engancharte y ver sus uniones con los personajes A por el siguiente!

    18. This is the Witcher book I had been hoping to read. The first two books in the series, while generally good and informative, were only short stories that ultimately felt quite disconnected. Blood of Elves quickly fixes that, and traditionally feels like the epic stories from the video game series. Sapkowski's novel centers on Ciri, the royal granddaughter to the fallen kingdom of Cintra, and her mentorship under Geralt of Rivia and the other Witchers at their base of Kaer Morhen, alongside Triss [...]

    19. 3.5 starsI absolutely adored (of course I did, it's the Witcher, damnit) Blood of Elves and the only reason I'm giving it 3.5 stars and not 4 is because of the huge chunk of story that is pretty much just kings and queens sitting around, contemplating the end of the world as they know it as they drink and warm themselves by the fire. That bit bored me to tears and I skimmed mercilessly, knowing I'd probably find out a better, more easily readable version at some point later on in the story.Blood [...]

    20. This was a pretty chill book. It wasn't at all what I expected for a Witcher sequel. When I look back at the plot of the story, there wasn't much that happens in the entire book. There were a few important plot points, but the rest was a lot of kings talking politics and Yennefer teaching Ciri about magic. And there was almost no Geralt in here. The book mainly focused on Ciri. There were a couple scenes where Geralt was the main pov but that was it. Geralt was moved to being more a support char [...]

    21. I could have played a drinking game based on how many times the phrase "blood of elves" came up in the first chapter of the book. Not that I'm complaining. In fact, a good few drinks would have added to the fun I had listening to this audiobook. This is listed as the third book in the Witcher series, with two short story collections coming before it, The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny. It's not necessary to read either of these to appreciate Blood of Elves, but it's definitely to your advantage. [...]

    22. "And the girl?" Yarpen indicated Ciri with his head as she wriggled under the sheepskin. "Yours?""Mine," he replied without thinking. "Mine, Zigrin."Auuughh, my feelings!!I'll say it again, though: you should definitely start this series with The Last Wish, because the short stories do a much better job of worldbuilding and getting you interested in this universe; plus, characterwise, you'll care so much more about Geralt, Yennefer, Ciri, and even background characters like Yarpen, Dandelion, an [...]

    23. This was a rather laid back novel full of trouble brewing, wars in the making, and the introduction of Ciri, the Child Surprise, Geralt's and the other witchers' destiny.For those who haven't read the prequel:In "The Last Wish", there's a story where Geralt was invitied to an event by Queen Calanthe, the Lioness of Cintra and he was asked to disguise himself. The cunning witcher knew at once there's something afoot until there's a commotion, a knight who refuses to reveal his face, (turns out it [...]

    24. It's official, my emergency back-up book on my phone is a Sapkowski book. This makes the third in the series (after The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny). We see more of the maturation of Ciri and how she bonded with Yennifer, and get some of Yen's view of Geralt. It's not high fiction, but I do love Geralt so. And everything I'm reading is only making my sporatic Witcher 3 playthrough deeper and more poignant.

    25. A bit of an odd duck, this one -- definitely the middle part of something, so I really, really hope they translate & publish additional volumes in the series. Geralt (the Witcher proper) also has much less of a role in it than one might otherwise expect. Having said that, as with the previous book, I enjoyed the Eastern European feel and the sometimes grim tone enough to overlook the structural flaws. (And I think I might cut translated books more slack because I assume the problem is with t [...]

    27. Mejoro enormemente los libros anteriores, empieza una historia en sí, una historia que sigue capitulo a capitulo y no pequeñas historias chiquitas. No me quejo de lo anterior, hoy hacen que uno conozca y se encariñe con los los personajes que antes con poquitas cosas fue conociendo. En este libro Geralt aparece menos que antes, los demás protagonistas toman mucha fuerza, aparecen los villanos, los reyes, las guerras venideras. Me gusto mucho, y me interesa pensar que libro a libro va a empez [...]

    28. A pesar de ser la primera novela de la saga, después de los dos primeros libros de relatos, la estructura sigue siendo muy parecida. Pocos capítulos y largos, con un hilo conductor, pero que cuentan una historia o momento en particular cada uno y con cambios muy bruscos entre uno y otro. A veces pueden pasar incluso meses o años entre capítulos.He echado en falta más momentos de Geralt, apenas sale en dos o tres capítulos. Y a Ciri, que me atrapó desde la primera vez que leí sobre ella, [...]

    30. It is still an enjoyable series though this installment felt to me as some kind of a middle syndromed book in its way to what I hope it will be a greater final chapter.Intrigues with magicians and kings, past and incoming wars and elves' rebellions take part more than ever of the main plot and unfortunately I am one of those readers that value more characters than dark plots. In the latter department, I like Ciri but she is sometimes so whiny I want her to mature a bit more.Secundaries like Jask [...]
