The Bookish Owl – Sword of Destiny by Andrzej Sapkowski

Sword of Destiny Andrzej Sapkowski owl

Since I’ll be going to Poland next week to attend Witcher School, I thought it only fitting that I read the second book in Andrzej Sapkowski’s Witcher series, Sword of Destiny.

(Book 3, 4 and 5 have already been packed for the flight)

It’s always good to read up on your lore. It probably won’t prevent me from getting my ass kicked by leshens, basilisks and whatever fellow Witcher adept I might piss off, but at least I will have brushed up on my Witcher curse word vocabulary.

I’m going to be calling someone a ‘whoreson’ before it’s all over, even if it kills me.

I have also started playing Gwent. Just in case I need another excuse to start cursing at people.

None of this post will have made any sense to people who haven’t played the Witcher games, so here’s a photo of my grumpy owl, since I know that’s why most of you are here:
