Now a 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.
But not everything monstrous-looking is evil and 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 short story collection is the perfect introduction to this one of a kind fantasy world.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Unfathomably cool, heroic, and honorable: Meet monster hunter Geralt of Rivia. The Last Wish—the introduction to Andrzej Sapkowski’s awesomely bloodthirsty Witcher saga—is a collection of short stories about the young Geralt’s early adventures, ranging from epic clashes to sexy romps. These stories start with familiar fairy tale and Lord of the Rings–style elements before twisting into something darker and weirder, slithering between humor and heartbreak, high-stakes adventure and quiet emotional revelations. With his brilliant, chameleonlike reading of the audiobook, Peter Kenny creates distinct timbres and styles for Sapkowski’s broad cast of aristocrats, commoners, magicians, and creatures. We were riveted by every vividly detailed action sequence and scene of immersive world-building, and absorbed in the characters’ relatable motivations and choices. This is a great listen for series fans as well as newcomers intrigued by TV’s The Witcher.

The download fails. You’ll pay for it but not have the chance to listen.
Fix this Apple. There is no way to report these errors on your end. That’s shameful.
