Geralt remains AWOL for much of this book, which really is a shame because he has so much potential as a main POV character. Unfortunately, Time of Contempt continues the downward slide in ratings for this series.
The Vagrant is a literary work that is bold, dismal, groundbreaking, and genre defying all at once. It's worth a read for its uniqueness alone. Throw in a knight, a baby, and a goat as traveling companions and what are you waiting for?
