Thought on The Tower of the Swallows by Andrzej Sapkowski

T

The Tower of the Swallows is a 4th book in a fantasy saga The Witcher written by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. Compared to the previous books in a saga to me it has more plot, is the bloodiest one, has a lot more characters which are thrown in the plot and doesn’t have long-lasting effect. And for my taste it’s too much non-linear because I struggled a lot connecting the dots which...

In the game player assumes roles of multiple characters that he navigates in open world and interacts with nearby objects. In game characters try to...

I

It’s been 2 weeks since I’ve discovered Aleatha Romig’s The Light, 2-book series when I was searching for a new read on Goodreads. First book Into the Light was ranked among the best thriller/mystery books for previous year. And oh boy, this story is so good, so captivating, I was literally skipping lines (with pages it would be too much) because I wanted to find out what...
