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.

Translated by Danusia Stok.

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. 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 *
One of the best and most interesting fantasy series I've ever read * Nerds of a Feather *
Like Mieville and Gaiman, [Sapkowski] takes the old and makes it new . . . [a] fresh take on genre fantasy * Foundation *
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.
