Waiting on Wednesday 10/25/17

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Mogsy’s Pick

Season of Storms by Andrzej Sapkowski (April 17, 2018 by Orbit Books)

Geralt of Rivia AKA The Witcher is one of my favorite fantasy characters ever, so it’s good to know we’ll be joining him once again next spring in a new novel finally being translated into English by David French. Originally published in Polish in 2013, Season of Storms is not a sequel continuing the main saga, but rather a standalone prequelin which readers will learn the origin story of our iconic protagonist.

“The New York Times bestselling series that inspired the Witcher video games.

Geralt of Riveria. A witcher whose mission is to protect ordinary people from the monsters created with magic. A mutant who has the task of killing unnatural beings. He uses a magical sign, potions and the pride of every witcher — two swords, steel and silver. But what would happen if Geralt lost his weapons? 

In this standalone novel, Geralt fights, travels and loves again, Dandelion sings and flies from trouble to trouble, sorcerers are scheming … and across the whole world clouds are gathering – the season of storms is coming…”

  1. I remember hearing a few things about this series and to be honest, I forgot all about it. I may see if my library has one so I can give it a try. I have to admit the concept sounds like something I’d like. The cover of this one is stunning!


  2. This is a series that’s just never been on my radar, but if you love the character then it must be amazing! Plus this looks like a good place for newbies to start.


  3. A standalone prequel sounds like the perfect way to sample Sapkowski’s writing without committing to a series: I’ve always wanted to add his works to my reading queue, and this seems exactly what I need. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
