With the plot being about a child of destiny and this child being destined to someone else and that someone else being said child’s protector, one would think the story is a typical, cliché, and predictable fantasy story.

The kings and armies are maneuvering for position, each fearing invasion from across the river, each fearing their neighbours more. Intrigue, dissent and rebellion are on all sides.

Kurzgeschichten aus der Serie The Witcher “You’ll notice many references to familiar fairy tales in the book. For example, take „Snow White“, but in this version the princess doesn’t wait for a prince to save her. Instead she goes out and implacably seeks revenge. (As an example of the cynical humor in the book: just what WAS the truth behind the stories about her once living with seven gnomes?)” (Leser) (1.236 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 292 Seiten noch günstig?
