A fantasy series in a class of its own. The Witcher follows the escapades of Geralt, a genetically-modified monster hunter in a war-torn realm inspired by medieval Europe. With a cast of lovable, witty, courageous, infuriating, and impressively human characters, The Witcher series is filled to the brim with surprising moments of belligerence and tenderness. With the new show premiering on Netflix, there’s never been a better time to get started on these classic books.
Geralt the Witcher -- revered and hated -- holds the line against the monsters plaguing humanity in this collection of adventures, the first chapter in the New York Times bestselling 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 assassin. 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.
And look out for The Tower of Fools, book one of Andrzej Sapkowski's Hussite Trilogy!
