Publisher Description

Geralt the Witcher—revered and hated—holds the line against the monsters plaguing humanity in this collection of adventures, the first chapter in Andrzej Sapkowski’s groundbreaking epic fantasy series that inspired the hit Netflix show and 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 hunter. Yet he is no ordinary killer. His sole purpose: to destroy the monsters that plague the world.

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

"I watched the Witcher Series on television and wanted to know the full story, so I downloaded the first book. It didn't disappoint. The book gave a different twist to fairy tales. The performance was stellar. If you like the Witcher TV show or Game, you will enjoy this book. "

Quotes

  • “It’s refreshing to see another take on familiar elements. There’s a fairy-tale quality to much of The Last Wish.”

    — SFX magazine
  • “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 magazine
