Awesome, simply awesome! To those, who at least played Witcher (3) in Sapkowski's deep and brilliant universe, the law of surprise couldnt be visualized better. How wonderful was that, brilliant. I still can not pick up my jaw from the floor. Wonderful piece of interpretation and fulfilment to the saga.
