The New York Times bestselling introduction to the Witcher series that inspired the Witcher video games.

*Look out for Season of Storms in May 2018*

Geralt is a witcher.

Yet he is no ordinary killer-for-hire.

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.

One of my favourite Fantasy series! The short stories are especially good as are the videogames.

The best series ever! Sapkowski will challenge your mind to put the plot back together when you see it though different eyes, he will make you laugh when from pompous monologues he commes to vulgarisms and rude gestures. But judge for yourself and do it after you read all 7 books. I promise, you will not be bored!

Sapkowski is one of the most talented writers ever. Witcher short stories (last wish and sword of destiny) are good but in my opinion only as extension to the actual 5 pieces long story starting with Blood of elves. Read the first chapter of blood of elves and decide for yourself. I found there humor, complicated plot, many vantage points, masterful scenes of combat, a bit of blood, a little bit of love story, a lot of companionship and friendship, destiny.

top ten fantasy series ever, short novels are something more than fantasy literature! unlucky they are not all translated.
