Publisher Description

Geralt the Witcher—revered and hated—holds the line against the monsters plaguing humanity in this collection of adventures, the first chapter in Andrzej Sapkowski’s groundbreaking epic fantasy series that inspired the hit Netflix show and 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 hunter. Yet he is no ordinary killer. His sole purpose: to destroy the monsters that plague the world.

But not everything monstrous-looking is evil and not everything fair is good . . . and in every fairy tale there is a grain of truth.

A world in gray

A unique and thoroughly enjoyable read from beginning to end. Presents many interesting and fresh takes on fantasy cliches and human nature. The short stories are well written (and translated )for the most part, but occasionally the dialogue and action are hard to follow. Modern words, swears, and phrases are often used which can be immersion breaking for some. All and all an excellent introduction to a very different series.

Hidden gem, must read

This book is what I call a rarity. It is not often that I find a book that I read entirely in one single night, and it is a longer book. The book itself inspired an entire video-game series, so needless to say it is one of the best I've read in some time. If you're into ancient mythical times, then look no further.

The plot is fairly complex with both books from this author should you be interested in a second helping, though the read itself is fairly ways to follow. I will be surprised if this book does not create a movie, though casting the right person to play Geralt of rivia should prove to be impossible.

My best opinion for you if you are on the 'I don't know' phase is to grab the sample and just read. I was captivated for the majority of that alone.

Happy Reading,

I’m new to the series. I loved it! Sometimes it was hard to follow but it was a good read!
