Andrzej Sapkowski

Andrzej Sapkowski was born in 1948 in Poland. He studied economy and business, but the success of his fantasy cycle about the sorcerer Geralt de Riv turned him into a bestselling writer and he is now one of Poland's most famous and successful authors, selling more in his own country than Stephen King or Michael Crichton.

Now a Netflix original series!
A deadly coup within the Wizard's Guild leaves the Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, gravely injured, and his ward Ciri missing in the third book of the New York Times bestselling series that inspired the Netflix show and the hit video games.
The Wizards Guild has been shattered by a coup and, in the uproar, Geralt was seriously injured. The Witcher is supposed to be a guardian of the innocent, a protector of those in need, a defender against powerful and dangerous monsters that prey on men in dark times.
But now that dark times have fallen upon the world, Geralt is helpless until he has recovered from his injuries.
While war rages across all of the lands, the future of magic is under threat and those sorcerers who survive are determined to protect it. It's an impossible situation in which to find one girl -- Ciri, the heiress to the throne of Cintra -- until a rumor places her in the Niflgaard court, preparing to marry the Emperor.
Injured or not, Geralt has a rescue mission on his hands.
Andrzej Sapkowski, winner of the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement award, started an international phenomenon with his Witcher series.
Now, look out for The Tower of Fools, book one of Andrzej Sapkowski's Hussite Trilogy, coming in October 2020!

Translated from original Polish by David French
Одна из лучших фэнтези-саг за всю историю существования жанра. Оригинальное, масштабное эпическое произведение, одновременно и свободное от влияния извне, и связанное с классической мифологической, легендарной и сказовой традицией. Шедевр не только писательского мастерства Анджея Сапковского, но и переводческого искусства Евгения Павловича Вайсброта. «Сага о Геральте» – в одном томе. Бесценный подарок и для поклонника прекрасной фантастики, и для ценителя просто хорошей литературы. Перед читателем буквально оживает необычный, прекрасный и жестокий мир литературной легенда, в котором обитают эльфы и гномы, оборотни, вампиры и «низушки»-хоббиты, драконы и монстры, – но прежде всего люди. Очень близкие нам, понятные и человечные люди – такие как мастер меча ведьмак Геральт, его друг, беспутный менестрель Лютик, его возлюбленная, прекрасная чародейка Йеннифэр, и приемная дочь – безрассудно отважная юная Цири...
