By the time this post goes live, I will have arrived at Moszna Castle in Poland after having been reading Blood of Elves by Andrzej Sapkowski on the plane (when not doing Sudokus…). But I didn’t want you to miss out on your grumpy owl photo, so I cheated and took this one yesterday!
Blood of Elves is, of course, the next book in the Witcher series, seeing as the sole reason I’m in Poland is to attend a Witcher-inspired LARP event.
As I’m writing this a little ahead of time, I haven’t started the book yet, so there’s not much more I can tell you about the story, but judging from the title…
It won’t end well for elves.
Anyway, I’ll be back home Sunday night, so I’ll see all of you once I emerge from my exhaustion-induced coma.
Hopefully this will be some time around Tuesday.
(Disclaimer to anyone who’s new to my blog and is not yet familiar with Artemis: The owl is fine, just weird as hell. Yesterday, apparently, he thought he was a hen.)

[…] Blood of Elves (Andrzej Sapkowski) Another Witcher book. Blood of Elves was special in that it was the one I read on my way to and from (and a little bit during, when my back was killing me and I had to go lie down anyway) my first Witcher School, so I got all giddy every time I encountered something I had just experienced in “real” life. I read the part with Geralt teaching Ciri fencing pirouettes in the evening after having trained pirouettes myself earlier that very same day. That’s some meta geekiness. […]
Is that Dandelion on the cover?
Yes, it is!
I still haven’t figured out who the guy on the last book was, but with the feather in the hat and the lute, I think this can only be our resident bard.
