Meet Geralt of Rivia – the Witcher – who holds the line against the monsters plaguing humanity in the bestselling series that inspired the Witcher video games and a major Netflix show.
The Witcher’s 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.

Andrzej Sapkowski, winner of the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement award, started an international phenomenon with his Witcher series. This boxed set contains all eight books: THE LAST WISH, SWORD OF DESTINY, BLOOD OF ELVES, TIME OF CONTEMPT, BAPTISM OF FIRE, THE TOWER OF THE SWALLOW, THE LADY OF THE LAKE, SEASON OF STORMS.
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 Rivia 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.
