Staff Reviews


Written almost 25 years ago this is the first short story collection of the Witcher translated from the original Polish. It’s a fantastic fantasy series with elements of myth and folklore woven into tales with unexpected twists and engaging characters. The deeper I got into the stories, the more rewarding and richer they became. Great, great, great!

— Daniel

Description


Now a Netflix original series!

Geralt the Witcher -- revered and hated -- holds the line against the monsters plaguing humanity in this collection of adventures, the first chapter in the New York Times bestselling 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 assassin. 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.

And look out for The Tower of Fools, book one of Andrzej Sapkowski's Hussite Trilogy!
