The Witcher returns in this action-packed sequel to Baptism of Fire, in the New York Times bestselling series that inspired The Witcher video games.

The world has fallen into war. Ciri, the child of prophecy, has vanished. Hunted by friends and foes alike, she has taken on the guise of a petty bandit and lives free for the first time in her life.

But the net around her is closing. Geralt, the Witcher, has assembled a group of allies determined to rescue her. Both sides of the war have sent brutal mercenaries to hunt her down. Her crimes have made her famous.

There is only one place left to run. The tower of the swallow is waiting.

Quotes & Awards

  • 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
  • “The character interplay is complex, unsentimental, and anchored in brutal shared history. All bodes well for twisty plotting to come.”

    SFX

  • "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
  • 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
