Description

The Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, holds the fate of the world in his hands in the New York Times bestselling first novel in the Witcher series that inspired the Netflix show and video games.

For more than a hundred years, humans, dwarves, gnomes and elves lived together in relative peace. But times have changed, the uneasy peace is over and now the races are fighting once again – killing their own kind and each other.

Into this tumultuous time is born a child of prophecy, Ciri, surviving heiress of a bloody revolution, whose strange abilities can change the world – for good, or for evil…

As the threat of war hangs over the land, Geralt the Witcher must protect Ciri from those who are hunting the child for her destructive power.

But this time, Geralt may have met his match.

Translated by Danusia Stok.

Publisher Review

Like Mieville and Gaiman, Sapkowski takes the old and makes it new - FOUNDATION An incredibly nuanced, well-articulated novel, imbued with a self-assured command of description and brimming with Eastern European folklore - Starburst on Time of Contempt Delightfully dry humour, mythology brimming with radical creatures and a group of interesting characters - Fantasy Book Review One of the best and most interesting fantasy series I've ever read - Nerds of a Feather There's lots of imagination on show, the writing has a strong voice, and the Witcher is an entertaining character - Mark Lawrence
