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 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.



But not everything monstrous-looking is evil and 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 short story collection is the perfect introduction to this one of a kind fantasy world.

Quotes

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

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

    - SFX magazine
  • "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
  • “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
  • 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.

    " 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. "
