Waterstones Says

The first in the unputdownable Witcher series that has inspired both video games and now a major Netflix production, The Last Wish introduces a hardened assassin and a bevy of brutal beasts in a stunning realised fantasy universe. Written with pace and verve by a master of the genre, The Last Wish grips from first page to last.

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

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

'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

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

“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.
