Watch for the signs! What signs these shall be, I say unto you: first the earth will flow with the blood of Aen Seidhe, the blood of elves …

For over a century, humans, dwarves, gnomes, and elves have lived together in relative peace. But times have changed, the uneasy peace is over, and now the races are fighting once again. The only good elf, it seems, is a dead elf.

Geralt of Rivia, the cunning assassin known as the Witcher, has been waiting for the birth of a prophesied child. This child has the power to change the world—for good or for evil.

As the threat of war hangs over the land and the child is hunted for her extraordinary powers, it will become Geralt’s responsibility to protect them all—and the Witcher never accepts defeat.

Following The Last Wish, Blood of Elves stars Geralt of Rivia, the inspiration for the critically-acclaimed The Witcher video game series.

Quotes & Awards

  • "The universe of Sapkowski's The Witcher is one of the most detailed and best-explored in modern fantasy, offering endless opportunities for fresh ideas ... Complex character relationships enrich this already complex world; this is the sort of series fantasy fans will cherish. B&N
  • One of the best and most interesting fantasy series I've ever read. Though it functions well as adventure fiction, it has added depth and value as satire and commentary on fantasy literature ... Sapkowski is a genuine stylist. Nerds of a Feather
  • Like a complicated magic spell, a Sapkowski novel is a hodgepodge of fantasy, intellectual discourse, and dry humor. Recommended. Time
  • Like Mieville and Gaiman, [Sapkowski] takes the old and makes it new ... fresh take on genre fantasy. Foundation on The Last Wish
  • "A breath of fresh air in a well-worn genre. Don't miss it! Dreamwatch
  • Sapkowski has a phenomenal gift for narrative, inventing sensational events, creating a suggestive mood, and building up the suspense along with a dazzling, slightly cynical sense of humor. Jacek Sieradzki, Polityka on The Last Wish
  • Sapkowski's The Last Wish is a great collection of short stories centered around a witcher, Geralt - a rare sorcerous breed who hunts down the monstrous but is feared by the innocent. With a wondrous mix of Eastern European folklore and myth, beautiful princesses, mischievous demons and where all is not as it seems, The Last Wish is a great read - perfect for dipping into or just reading cover to cover, as I did. Waterstones
  • It is [his] world-weariness combined with his battle-boned powers that make Geralt such an interesting character. Here's hoping The Last Wish is merely the opening chapter in his English language adventures. Edge
  • I really, really enjoyed this book ... None of the characters in Sapkowski's world are black or white; they are all shades of grey, including Geralt and the monsters. The Deckled Edge
  • Sapkowski is very good at creating interesting, imaginative characters with unusual levels of depth to them ... The Last Wish is an enjoyable book full of stories both melancholy and comic. The Wertzone
  • This beautifully written character-based story from Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski ... a refreshing champion. The Specusphere
  • New battle mechanics, a fantastic storyline, and a gritty setting make The Witcher one of the most engrossing, mature RPGs to arrive on the PC in years. Gamespot.com on The Witcher video game
  • The Witcher delivers one of the most intense and rewarding role-playing experiences this year. GT Reviews on The Witcher video game
  • “A breath of fresh air in a well-worn genre.”

    SFX magazine

  • “It is [his] world-weariness, combined with his battle-boned powers, that make Geralt such an interesting character.”

    Edge magazine on The Last Wish
