Description

Geralt the Witcher – revered and hated – holds the line against the monsters plaguing humanity in the bestselling series that inspired the hit Witcher Netflix show and video games.

Geralt of Rivia is a Witcher, a man whose magic powers and lifelong training have made him a brilliant fighter and a merciless assassin. Yet he is no ordinary killer: he hunts the vile fiends that ravage the land and attack the innocent. But not everything monstrous-looking is evil; not everything fair is good . . . and in every fairy tale there is a grain of truth.

Translated by David French.

Andrzej Sapkowski, winner of the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement award, started an international phenomenon with his Witcher series. In this second collection of short stories, following the adventures of the hit collection The Last Wish, join Geralt as he battles monsters, demons and prejudices alike . . .

Publisher Review

A great read - Waterstones.com Like Mieville and Gaiman, Sapkowski takes the old and makes it new - Foundation 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
