The Witcher: Season Of Storms Book Review

As most who’ve played the Witcher videogame series know, it’s inspired by a bestselling series of books by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.

Witchers – via trademark steel and silver swords – earn their keep by fulfilling contracts that require the slaying of monsters terrorizing the masses. They do so, however, under a strict code: no innocents can be slain. However, not all witchers adhere to the code in the same fashion, if at all.
