However, that all changes when an old nemesis of Geralt's, Emperor Emhyr var Emreis of Nilfgaard, summons the Witcher for a most peculiar job: Find Ciri, a child of destiny
precious to them both; the one soul in the world Geralt considers kin. Geralt must now travel the lands in search of Ciri, all the while battling the otherworldly legions of The Wild Hunt
, who seek the girl for their own nefarious ends.
