This New York Times bestseller introduces Geralt the Witcher, who holds the line against the monsters plaguing humanity in this first book in the award-winning series that inspired the hit Netflix show
Introducing Geralt the Witcher - revered and hated - who holds the line against the monsters plaguing humanity in the bestselling series that inspired the Witcher video games and a major Netflix show.
Geralt of Rivia is a Witcher, a man whose magic powers and lifelong training have made him a brilliant fighter and a merciless assassin.
Yet he is no ordinary killer: he hunts the vile fiends that ravage the land and attack the innocent.
But not everything monstrous-looking is evil; 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 is the perfect introduction to this one-of-a-kind fantasy world.
The third in the Witcher saga is an incredibly nuanced, well-articulated novel, imbued with a self-assured command of description and brimming with Eastern European folklore - Starburst on Time of Contempt
Like a complicated magic spell, a Sapkowski novel is a hodge podge of fantasy, intellectual discourse and dry humour. Recommended - Time Magazine
Delightfully dry humour, mythology brimming with radical creatures and a group of interesting characters, The Last Wish is a great introduction to this universe - Fantasy Book Review
One of the best and most interesting fantasy series I've ever read - Nerds of a Feather
There's lots of imagination on show, the writing has a strong voice, and the Witcher is an entertaining character - Mark Lawrence
Sapkowski was born in 1948 in Poland. He studied economy and business, but the success of his fantasy cycle about the sorcerer Geralt de Rivia turned him into a bestselling writer and he is now one of Poland's most famous and successful authors, selling more in his own country than Stephen King or Michael Crichton.
