Bea | 1890 comments I'm planning to start this evening. I'm not sure yet how many chapters I'll manage every day. I somehow find it hard to concentrate on the Witcher books for a longer amount of time

I don't know more about it either. But parallels between nordic and slavic mythology don't seem surprising to me.

Oh, cool, you have lived in Sweden? I'd love to go there on holiday some day, it must be lovely!


Virginie | 5649 comments Read chapter 2. You're right, everything is explained :)

Yeah, I did my master in Stockholm. The town and its surroundings are amazing! I'd advise you to go there in the summer though, unless you like constant night and negative temperatures haha :p

Virginie | 5649 comments Ok, I kept reading my daily chapters and finished. I really, really liked this one. Need to order my thoughts on it before commenting :)

YES! I thought this one had a really good flow; the time/POV jumps were well executed (while they were sometimes jarring & confusing in previous books).

Loved the atmospheric/poetic tone of the first chapters.
