Publisher Description

Soon to be a major Netflix original series!



The Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, becomes the guardian of Ciri, surviving heiress of a bloody revolution and prophesied savior of the world, in the first novel of the NYT bestselling series that inspired the blockbuster video games.



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.



Blood of Elves is the first full-length Witcher novel by World Fantasy Award winner Andrzej Sapkowski, and the perfect follow up if you've read The Last Wish collection.

Quotes

  • "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.

    - Barnes&Noble.com
  • 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
  • “A breath of fresh air in a well-worn genre.”

    - SFX magazine, praise for the series

    " The best thing about Blood of Elves is Siri and Geralt - the father-daugther-like main characters of this story. Everyone else seems to be secondary, and I found myself wanting to skip over their chapters to get back to either of the two leads. Still, this book had some fun political intrigue, but overall doesn't leave me clamoring for a lot more (unless Siri and Geralt become the predominant focus again in later books). "
