The witcher book series review
The Last Wish (The Witcher, #0.5) by Andrzej SapkowskiGeralt of Rivia is a witcher. A cunning sorcerer. A merciless assassin. And a cold-blooded 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.
A collection of short stories introducing Geralt of Rivia, to be followed by the first novel in the actual series, The Blood of Elves. Note that, while The Last Wish was published after The Sword of Destiny, the stories contained in The Last Wish take place first chronologically, and many of the individual stories were published before The Sword of Destiny.

The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski
What with The Witcher TV series releasing later this year and with periodic sales of the Witcher games coming and going, it's pretty much always a great time to delve into The Witcher books—but particularly in advance of and to prepare for the Netflix show series. Its Nilfgaardian armor is looking a tad wrinkly , but we're willing to put good money on the show being a success due to its close ish proximity to Game of Thrones styles and sensibilities. Plus those fans will be burning hard for something else to watch. Unfortunately its not quite as easy as one, two, three, and there are several mini series and ways that the books are compiled. However, we've have you covered. As a brief overview, the book series is written by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski and follows a man named Geralt who happens to be a Witcher—someone attuned with supernatural abilities and trained from childhood to battle beasts that threaten the public. The series started as a set of short stories in the '80s for a Polish fantasy magazine, and the initial tale came third in their competition to find new ideas and writers.
True Evil, Geralt, is something you can barely imagine, even if you believe nothing can still surprise you. And sometimes True Evil seizes you by the throat and demands that you choose between it and another, slightly lesser, Evil. I've been playing those games for years, with the intention of eventually getting to the source material. Mainly the setback was that it took a long-ass time for the English translations to be released. Then of course there is the problem of an endless TBR But it makes getting to a series more difficult, of course.
But not everything monstrous-looking is evil and not everything fair is good. It is no small secret among the staff in the video game department at Geeks Under Grace that I am incorrigible in my Witcher fandom. I invested hours of blissful gameplay with Witcher 3, yet never played its two expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, despite purchasing them, not wanting the excellence of the chronicles to end. Therefore, I decided to prolong my enjoyment by reading the Witcher novels first! At the time that I learned of a Witcher novel series, they had yet to be translated from Polish to English. Still feeling the burn of reading through George R. Thus, I am able to produce reviews in case there are others interested in reading these excellent manuscripts.
