Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Geralt of Rivia is a witcher. A cunning sorcerer. A merciless assassin.

And a cold-blooded 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.

The international hit that inspired the video game: The Witcher.

Synopsis:

Geralt de Rivia is a witcher; his sole purpose is to destroy the monsters that plague the world. But not everything monstrous-looking is evil, and not everything fair is good, in this international hit that inspired the video game "The Witcher." Original.

Bluefastakan, January 30, 2013 (view all comments by Bluefastakan)
Originally picked it up because I was such a fan of the game I decided to try and get a little back story. I was incredibly surprised to find how much I enjoyed this book. I've had a rough time with other translated works, and there is a bit of a style you have to get used to, but the dialogue is witty, the characters are entertaining and well fleshed-out, and the stories themselves are great fun.
