The Time of Contempt: Witcher #2 by Andrzej Sapkowski
Hardcover – Orbit – Sept 2022 – 389 pages
Geralt is a Witcher: guardian of the innocent; protector of those in need; a defender, in dark times, against some of the most frightening creatures of myth and legend.
His task, now, is to protect Ciri. A child of prophecy, she will have the power to change the world for good or for ill—but only if she lives to use it.
