Sword of Destiny (Polish: Miecz przeznaczenia) is the second (in its fictional chronology; first in Polish print) of the two collections of short stories (the other being The Last Wish), both preceding the main Witcher Saga. The stories were written by Polish fantasy author Andrzej Sapkowski. The first Polish edition was published in 1992;[1] the English edition was published in the UK by Gollancz in 2015.[2]

Plot[edit]

The anthology consists of several stories, loosely linked in a chronology.

  • 'The Bounds of Reason' (Granica możliwości)
  • 'A Shard of Ice' (Okruch lodu)
  • 'Eternal Flame' (Wieczny ogień)
  • 'A Little Sacrifice' (Trochę poświęcenia)
  • 'Sword of Destiny' (Miecz przeznaczenia)
  • 'Something More' (Coś więcej)

The short stories in this collection take place before the events of the novels and introduce characters that become major players in the novels. The titular story, The Sword of Destiny, is the first to introduce the character of Ciri. The following story, Something More, which also features Ciri, is a direct prequel to the Witcher Saga, describing events that take place shortly before those in the Saga (such as the fall of the Kingdom of Cintra).

Translations[edit]

The book has been translated into Italian, Hungarian, Czech, Russian, Greek, Swedish, Finnish, Estonian, Lithuanian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Serbian, Bulgarian, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Romanian, Turkish, Dutch and French. The English translation was released by Gollancz on May 21, 2015 (translated by David French).[3]
