Time of Contempt (Witcher #2)
|Author:||Andrzej Sapkowski; David French (Translator)|
Geralt was always going to stand out, with his white hair and piercing eyes, his cynicism and lack of respect for authority ... but he is far more than just a striking-looking man. He's a witcher; his sorcerous powers, enhanced by elixirs and long training, have made him a brilliant fighter and a merciless assassin. Yet he is no orderinary murderer; his targets are the vile fiends and demons that ravage the land. But first appearances can often be deceptive; not everything monstrous-looking is a monster ... and even the fairest can have a bite
Geralt - the witcher - and his friends and enemies return in another instalment of the bestselling series.
Andrzej Sapkowski was born in 1948 in Poland. He studied economy and business, but the success of his fantasy cycle about the sorcerer Geralt de Rivia turned him into a bestselling writer and he is now one of Poland's most famous and successful authors, selling more in his own country than Stephen King or Michael Crichton.
