There, Geralt meets his former love, the sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg, and the young princess Ciri, whom he considers to be his ward. Ciri, endowed with magical powers and known as “the Child of Prophecy”, is persecuted by the mysterious Lodge of Sorceresses, as well as by others interested in her lineage.

Geralt is forced to take sides in the middle of this war, trying to protect Ciri and keep her safe from those who wish to control her destiny.
Meanwhile, Geralt learns that there is a group of assassins called the Rats who are hired to kill the witches. Also, a mysterious figure known as Vilgefortz is revealed to be one of the main antagonists of this Witcher novel, as he wants to control Ciri for her own purposes.
Geralt also meets other important characters in this installment, such as Triss Merigold, a sorceress friend and ally, as well as other warlocks such as Lambert, Eskel and Vesemir. Together, they face numerous dangers, including monsters and political conspiracies.

Geralt finds himself in a difficult position, having to make decisions he doesn’t like and face the consequences of his actions. Geralt and Yennefer’s relationship is put to the test as they must deal with their own desires and obligations.
