    Summary

    Higher vampires prefer to remain a mystery to the world. But when one of their communities is decimated by attacks from an unknown source, Regis and Geralt take on the case. But Regis has his own demons to wrestle with. And a witcher is one of the most unwelcome sights among vampires. They will need to rely on one another as never before if they are to survive what they encounter, much less prevail.

    Summary

    “It’s my job, Regis… protecting people from monsters. But when the people are the monsters, what then? Do I keep my neutrality? Stay out of it when I know I can do something to help? Or do I take the monster’s side – any side – in the hopes that everything’ll blow over soon enough and get back to normal so I can grab my pay and leave? When’s a witcher not a witcher?”

    Syanna’s death and Dettlaff’s disappearance has left Anna Henrietta shaken. Geralt, upon learning that he is no longer welcome in Toussaint, seeks to leave Corvo Bianco behind and once more return to the Path. He would have done so alone too had it not been for a welcome visit from an old friend – and with Regis’ company, the two come to terms with the events of the recent past, and what this holds for their future. And when Regis confides in Geralt something that leaves the witcher momentarily shaken, he tries to understand these feelings that the vampire has left him questioning. He soon realises that perhaps these feelings weren’t as one-sided as he thought.

    Summary

    So his new partner was surprisingly not completely un-attractive, for a human. Gavin Hayes had impressive aptitude scores, and a friendly smile, and eyes sharp as winter currents, taking in the station and remembering names and details with an ease that belied his causal charm. All things that transcended species boundaries and general integumentary inadequacies.

    It didn’t mean Sezin found him sexy.

    Summary

    Grandmother ruled Gir Niajra, and always had.

    Jummai felt certain this was so, mostly because it was impossible to imagine otherwise: anyone, anyone at all, seated so comfortably on that great golden throne except Grandmother? Anyone who could look or speak with such authority, to whom so many great and worthy people bowed down? No—only Grandmother. It had always been Grandmother, and it always would be.

    Then Grandmother died; and there was a war.

    (Or: Jummai is a princess without a throne—but she has no intention of leaving to others what is rightfully hers. She needs a wife with an army, and gets one; but her wife seems impervious to her tactical charm, she keeps making mistakes, and her cousin still wants her dead.)
