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.

The Witcher Saga consists of two books of short stories (The Last Wish, The Sword of Destiny) - which are the best books of the series in my opinion. The latter has not been published in English, which is odd, since it precedes the five novels, of which first has been published, and the second will be shortly. Anyway it is a very strong, dark fantasy (but also full of humour!), containing traditional Tolkienish elements (though reimagined) and the creatures of the Slavic folklore. The popular video game is not an adaptation of any of the books and takes place after the end of The Saga.

very classical fantasy novel, first the short stories should be read then the saga, I read all the books (I am Polish) and I like the the main characters created, the world and very interesting plot: nice balance between geopolitical issues, conspiracy and fates

I have read, blood of elves, time of contempt, baptism of fire,and the prequels to the series sword of destiney and the last wish which introduce you to the main charactors in the witcher series, definitely sword and sorcery but in an epic world way, loved the witcher series,two more books in series are being translated into English for 2016/17, can't wait.
