Ciri turns the narrator for Netflix's The Witcher?

In the interview published on an online portal, Lauren Hissrich revealed that the story of Netflix's The Witcher is reportedly based on the second book of The Witcher series titled, Lady of the Lake. Reportedly, the story of The Witcher will be in a non-linear format, inculcating Princess Ciri, Yennefer and Geralt of Rivia's perspective, which was missing in the original story that presented only the perspective of Geralt of Rivia. Hissrich, who had initially planned to narrate the story through Princess Ciri's perspective found out the series lacked a male perspective, and upon further contemplation, they finalised on including all central character's perspective to present a new story to the audience.
