We’ve seen Geralt met, build a relationship and finally, accept Ciri as his destiny. From the first few pages, it’s made clear that Geralt and Ciris connection has developed into a father/daughter relationship.

It’s a brisk winter evening in Central Florida. Warm light spills out of a local hipster hangout on West Fairbanks Avenue, and Steven Pietrusza totes his keyboard in through the glass front door. It’s a Thursday night, which means it’s jazz night at Austin’s Coffee. Pietrusza untangles his pedal, while bassist Joe Infantino quietly plays […]
Chapter 2. The Progression. Within seconds they had reached the woman. “Are you alright?” Richard asked. “Do you need us to call an ambulance?” Thomas added. “Ambulance? Of course not.
