I have finished the Witcher series but there is one more book left. Season of Storms by Andrzej Sapkowski is not part of the main plot. But it does give us more stories about the Witcher which is always great. Keep reading to find out why you should be reading this next!
Season of Storms Summary
After killing a monster on the road, Geralt of Rivia heads to the nearest town. But this town is going to challenge the Witcher to his core. They take his weapons and keep them in storage because weapons are not allowed in town. So Geralt goes to eat and gets arrested before he can even take a bite of his food.
The Witcher has been accused of stealing money and is sent to jail. Dandelion, the poet and Geralt’s closest friend, comes to his aid. That is when Geralt finds out his weapons have been stolen. This is the first time that Geralt is without his reliable Witcher swords. Will he be able to find his weapons again and will he be able to solve the mystery behind the mysterious monsters that have been showing up around the town?
This novel was the slowest of the Witcher novels. And that is not a bad thing. The story took a while for me to get interested in but when I did, I couldn’t put it down. Seeing Geralt in an uncomfortable situation gives this book a different feeling and Sapkowski captured it well.
If you just want to read the main books, then you can skip this one. It is irrelevant to the plot and its supposed to be more Witcher stories after finishing the series. This was the weakest novel in the series by far. There were some interesting concepts in the book like demons from other dimensions. But the novel didn’t dive into that world. I think it was because that would require a lot of explaining.
Even the best book series have a book in the series that isn’t as good as the rest of the series. That seems to be true for this novel and while it does introduce some important plot devices, it did not live up to the expectations that the series set up. The good news is that it will only go up from here!
