The Last Wish (The Witcher #1)
by Andrzej Sapkowski
First published in 1993
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.
The international hit that inspired the video game: The Witcher.
I’m not sure where I first saw this book. I think it was in an article about science fiction and fantasy series by authors who aren’t from the US or UK. The synopsis is a bit sparse, but while I don’t play video games, I’ve heard good things about The Witcher, so I think I might enjoy this book.
