We get to know Ceri more in the Time of Contempt. She is stubborn and her seer abilities are growing. She wants to be with Geralt and train with him. Like a child she doesn’t understand the dangers. Ceri faces many trials and begins to shape her own future.
This installment brings more magic, battles, political intrigue, and danger as the story focuses on Ceri. The child of Destiny. The lioness cub.
Sapkowski has created a world that enthralls me, and Ceri’s time in the desert, the monsters and the gang she encounters kept me up listening. This is where I wish I could unfurl a map in my head and connect places. The author does a fantastic job bringing everything to life and has me craving more.
Peter Kenny is brilliant in his narration of this series. From his voices to his ability to enhance the suspenseful moments. His repertoire of voices astounds me.
The ending has me wanting to dive into the Baptism of Fire, the third audiobook. With a title like that, I am expecting things to be tense! This review was originally posted at Caffeinated Reviewer
