After getting back together with Princess Ciri, Geralt goes to the battlefield to find out what happened to Yennefer.

Francesca Findabair, a sorceress and the elves’ new leader, greets them there. Yennefer gets a vision and ends up in a forest, where she learns that the elves have joined forces with Fringilla and Nilfgaard thanks to the pregnant Francesca.

After a month in captivity, Yennefer returns to be suspected. To show her innocence, she must kill Cahir, the kidnapped commander of the Nilfgaardian army. Instead of becoming a killer to prove her devotion, she chooses to ride out with him.
Meanwhile, Ciri starts training and discovers that she has the Elder blood that was thought to be lost forever. In order to assist Ciri in mastering her abilities, Triss Merigold has been invited to Kaer Morhen.
