Waterstones Says

The first instalment of the phenomenally popular Witcher series gets a deluxe hardback illustrated edition boasting seven images from a range of stellar artists.

Andrzej Sapkowski's The Witcher has become a global phenomenon, inspiring the hit Netflix series and the blockbuster video games. Now you can experience the world of the Witcher like never before with this stunning deluxe hardcover edition of The Last Wish.

Featuring seven gorgeous illustrations from seven award-winning artists - one for each story in the collection of adventures - it celebrates the first chapter of the bestselling, groundbreaking series.

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Like a complicated magic spell, a Sapkowski novel is a hodge podge of fantasy, intellectual discouse and dry humour. Recommended' - Time Magazine 

'Character interplay is complex, unsentimental and anchored in brutal shared history' - SFX 

'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 

'Sapkowski has a confident and rich voice which permeates the prose and remains post-translation. I'd recommend this to any fan of Heroic or Dark fiction' - SF Book 

'There's lots of imagination on show, the writing has a strong voice, and the Witcher is an entertaining character' - Mark Lawrence 

'Refreshing and a lot of fun to read' - Grimdark Magazine 

'Captivating, often nerve-wracking, and truthfully ... rip-roaring fun' - Fantasy Hive

“Great Fantasy Fiction”

I enjoyed this more than Blood of Elves, and on reflection should have read it before Blood of Elves, as it would have helped to give more background to all the characters.
Geralt is a true hero - a monster slayer... More
