The Last Wish

The Last Wish Summary

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.

Excellent5 star

I have played the games & watched the Netflix series season 1. The book was great entertainment.55


Must read!5 star

Geralt of Rivia is a character I absolutely adore. He’s witty, sarcastic, but also does whatever he thinks is right. I first discovered the Witcher when I played the Witcher 3 game on PS4. Then the Netflix adaptation came out. And now I’m reading the books. I can’t recommend this series enough. If you love fantasy and the like, especially crazy and imaginative beasts and creatures, these books are for you.55


Just watch it on Netflix.1 star

I enjoyed the series, so I thought I’d read this while waiting for the next season. That was a mistake. The writing (or maybe just the translation?) is amateurish, and the dialogue is like something out a 1940s gangster movie.15
