Sword of Destiny (Andrzej Sapkowski)

Sword of Destiny is the second short story collection in the Witcher series by Andrzej Sapkowski. I read the English translation by David French.

[Here’s my review of the first short story collection/novel in the series.]

After the pleasant surprise that was The Last Wish for me, I was really looking forward to delving further into this world. Sword of Destiny, unfortunately, didn’t work quite as well for me as The Last Wish. It focused too much on Yennefer who is exactly the kind of female character in a dudebro fantasy that I was afraid the Witcher series would be full of. Still, overall. I did enjoy the collection and since it was actually written before The Last Wish, here’s to hoping that the rest of the books (that I’ll certainly read) will continue the upward trend.

The book cover shwoing a wolf head in a circle of twigs.
