Prior to this, the empire of Nilfgaard attacks and defeats the Kingdom of Cintra. The following events lead to chaos and discontent among all parties. People are predicting the end to be nearing unless a ray of hope emerges from the South.
In testing times like these, a princess is born. This princess is Ciri, the daughter of Queen Calanthe of Cintra who lost the war to the Nilfgaard Empire. According to prophecies, she is called the Flame. She is the one who would save the World. What makes her special is the fact that she has royal blood and blood of elves running through her body. She is what the world had been looking for, to bring back the peace and save the World.

Blood of elves audiobook mp3 is wonderful. The development of characters is very defined. Overall, the story progresses quite quick as well. The major difference between Blood of elves and other books is that the story involves major parts from other characters than Geralt. In the previous novels, Geralt was always the center of attention. In my opinion, though, the parts where Geralt is not the center, are a little slow and dull.
One drawback that I felt was that the writing style seems a little off and difficult to comprehend sometimes. It is partly because the original book was written in Polish and translated into English. Nevertheless, it is worth a read and listens.
The audiobook was narrated by Peter Kenny, who is an award-winning narrator. He did a fantastic job with this book. The highs and lows were perfect, and his voiceover was uncanny to the personalities of the characters.
