Description

Introducing Geralt the Witcher - revered and hated - who holds the line against the monsters plaguing humanity in the bestselling series that inspired the Witcher video games and a major Netflix show.

Geralt of Rivia is a Witcher, a man whose magic powers and lifelong training have made him a brilliant fighter and a merciless assassin.

Yet he is no ordinary killer: he hunts the vile fiends that ravage the land and attack the innocent.

But not everything monstrous-looking is evil; not everything fair is good . . . and in every fairy tale there is a grain of truth.

Andrzej Sapkowski, winner of the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement award, started an international phenomenon with his Witcher series. The Last Wish is the perfect introduction to this one-of-a-kind fantasy world.

    Despite some grammatical and typing errors (from Polish to English translation no doubt), the book is one massive roller coaster of emotions and a great way to step forward into rich Witcher world. Looking forward in reading the next book.
  • As epic as Witcher games

    5/5 An excellent introduction to The Witcher series. A handful of short stories that all pieces together in the final chapters making for a thrilling, satisfying and charming ending. Also a perfect companion to those playing The Witcher games.
