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.
This is a collection of short stories, following the legendary warrior Geralt of Rivia as he battles monsters, demons and prejudices alike...
Andrzej Sapkowski, winner of the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement award, started an international phenomenon with his Witcher novels. A New York Times bestseller and the inspiration for the hit video games, The Last Wish is the perfect introduction to this one of a kind fantasy world.

    Prob a player of the games, and someone who never reads this was amazing. I played all 3 Witcher games before reading this, I have watched all of Game of Thrones but never read the books, decided to give it a go for the Witcher Series and I’m glad I did, might try the Song Of Ice And Fire next but man this book was great can’t wait to read Sword of Destiny

    I’ve read this wonderful book before on my iPhone 6. Recently I bought an X and the download cannot be started. I am wondering if it happens to other devices other than an X.

    I love the Witcher game so much that I wanted to know more about the characters of the game and their history so I could relate more in the game. Reading the book just made me appreciate the characters more and gave me a new understanding of the game. Amazing read!
  • Love it!

    I played the game first and from that it really intrigued me. The books are great and I really wish there more
  • Keeps you guessing

    By Laladien
    A collection of adventures that slowly provides insight into the character of the witcher. Just when you feel like you know him, he makes a decision that surprises you as the reader. You finish the book wanting to go on to the next one.
  • Couldn’t Put it Down

    By Symwen
    As a big fan of both the video games and (sadly) short-lived TV series, I’m wishing I’d had the patience to read the books first! Anyone criticising this book’s “lack of continuity” is forgetting that it’s a collection of short stories. It does a fantastic job with character development and setting the tone for future events to take place. Exciting, compelling, unique… Don’t bother me, I’m about to read them all!
