Publisher Description

Soon to be a major Netflix original series!



Geralt the Witcher -- revered and hated -- holds the line against the monsters plaguing humanity in this second collection of adventures in the NYT bestselling series that inspired the blockbuster video games.



Geralt is a witcher, a man whose magic powers, enhanced by long training and a mysterious elixir, have made him a brilliant fighter and a merciless assassin. Yet he is no ordinary murderer: his targets are the multifarious monsters and vile fiends that ravage the land and attack the innocent.

This is a collection of short stories, following the adventures of the New York Times bestseller, The Last Wish. Join Geralt as he battles monsters, demons and prejudices alike...

Quotes

  • Like a complicated magic spell, a Sapkowski novel is a hodgepodge of fantasy, intellectual discourse, and dry humor. Recommended.

    - Time
  • "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
  • "A breath of fresh air in a well-worn genre. Don't miss it!

    - Fantasy Book Review
  • 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
  • It is [his] world-weariness combined with his battle-honed 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
  • “Sapkowski revitalizes the genre with energetic and compelling writing. A breath of fresh air in a well-worn genre. Don’t miss it!”

    - Dreamwatch, praise for the series
