About this ebook

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.

This book, to me, is everything and more a Witcher fan could ask for. It's full of interesting scenarios, it's witty, and of course, it has the action you could expect with Geralt's profession. And with unexpected outcomes, too! I loved this book and I'm sure I'll love the rest!

For a collection of short stories that lead into the main series this is fantastic! The writing is a bit odd at times due to it being a translated novel and not written in English natively but it is good enough and vivid enough for every scene to be pictured. I cannot wait to read the main series next.

The Last wish and Sword of destiny are both very good book if you want to get interested in this series. I would say that The Last Wish is the best book to get into the Witcher series. It also has many stories that Geralt references in the Video Games.
