Book Review: The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkoski

By: Andrzej Sapkowski
Genre: Fantasy
Pages: 360
Release Date: December 14th, 2008
Publisher: Orbit 
Rating: ★★★★☆

Summary from Goodreads:

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.

A collection of short stories introducing Geralt of Rivia, to be followed by the first novel in the actual series, The Blood of Elves. Note that, while The Last Wish was published after The Sword of Destiny, the stories contained in The Last Wish take place first chronologically, and many of the individual stories were published before The Sword of Destiny.


I read this book because I really enjoyed the new TV series. The book was better. The authors way ow writing is so clear and precise. The story isn't bogged down with too much information and the story moves along perfectly. I can't wait to read the next book and watch the next season of the show.
