Last summer I became completely obsessed with The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt where I took screenshots like thisAdd me on SteamAnd once I was finished with the DLC I knew I had to finally read the books to fill the void I now carry in my heartThis book was translated from Polish to English It contains seven short stories and introduces our main protagonist in both games and books Geralt People Geralt turned his head like to invent monsters and monstrosities Then they seem less monstrous themselves The events in these seven stories take place before Sword of Destiny which is another short story collection and before Blood of Elves the first actual full length novel in this series Just like the video games The Witcher world is so magical whimsical full of twists and it never disappoints Two of these stories are so very important in understanding why Geralt feels the way he does about two very predominant characters that are talked about in much greater detail later in this world And seeing Geralt and Yen s origin story gave me all the feels sorry Triss fans but gtfo I m going to break down each story with my personal feelings and beliefs There will be SPOILERS ahead So please be cautious while reading if you have not read this short story collection and do not wish to be spoiled on the events that lead up to the main story and video games In order to become a witcher you have to be born in the shadow of destiny and very few are born like that That s why there are so few of us We re growing old dying without anyone to pass our knowledge our gifts on to We lack successors And this world is full of Evil which waits for the day none of us are left 1 The Voice of Reason This story starts out in true Witcher fashion with Geralt having sexy time with a random girl We are also introduced to Geralt s notorious sidekick Dandelion the Bard Geralt starts to speak up about how hard it is to be a witcher and make a living off of it When upon leaving a man approaches Geralt and pretty much forces Geralt to fight without being able to touch his opponent Geralt uickly proves how smart and cunning he truly is and why he makes this series so addictive to read and learn about 2 The Witcher Geralt goes to a new town where a king has gotten his sister pregnant seven years ago Sadly the sister and the child died in birth but the child is now awake and seems to be a werewolf and is causing chaos in the town Geralt is sent to kill her but someone gives him a tip that if he prevents the werewolf from going back to its coffin for three days she will turn into an ordinary girl He is also bribed to run away but Geralt being the outstanding and honorable man he is uses the briber as bait instead Geralt is able to hide in the girls coffin for three nights and she turns into the regular girl on the third morning 3 A Grain of Truth The imagery of this story really is a tier above what fantasy normally gives us nowadays Geralt is traveling once again and finds two bodies that appear to have come from an abandoned mansion Upon further inspection a cursed man named Nivellen owns the house He was cursed by a priest to become a beast but the house obeys his every wish Traveling merchants even come from all around and trade their daughters to him for a period of time for currency Nivellen has tried everything and the curse is never broken But when his newest girl who ends up not being all of what she seems and who was responsible of the two bodies Geralt originally found starts a fight with Geralt Nivellen is forced to help him and the curse is broken Yes this is legitimately a wrapped version of Beauty and the Beast 4 The Lesser Evil Again in a new city Geralt killed a monster and is looking for compensation He goes to see a mage that he knew from before and he asks Geralt to kill a monster for him The monster ends up being a young girl and when Geralt talks to her he realizes she is seeking vengeance for what the mage did to her After her and Geralt get to know each other she promises to back down because nothing good will come of it Geralt awakens in the morning and realizes that she lied He knows where she will be so he meets her and ends up having to fight her He wins and she must die but Geralt faces the uestion of what is truly evil and refuses to let the mage to take her body Only Evil and Greater Evil exist and beyond them in the shadows lurks True Evil True Evil Geralt is something you can barely imagine even if you believe nothing can still surprise you And sometimes True Evil seizes you by the throat and demands that you choose between it and another slightly lesser Evil 5 A uestion of Price This story completely blew my mind and probably has the biggest life changing event for Geralt in it Again Geralt is traveling and meets with ueen Calanthe and she tells him what she truly thinks of witchers During the party where this meeting is taking place a knight comes and demands ueen Calanthe s daughter the princess which he has earned Sadly this knight is also cursed but Geralt is able to lift the curse The knight is then able to marry the princess but Geralt knows they have been seeing each other for some time because the princess is pregnant They ask Geralt what he would like for payment and he gives a very veiled response and says that he will be back in six years time to see if he is lucky view spoilerThis is 100% his adopted daughter Ciri She is my second favorite character only to Geralt in all the games and she completely changes Geralt s and Yen s life forever hide spoiler

I had tried reading this book before but DNFed it almost immediately because it opened with this gem He did not move did not stir The girl flitted closer threw off her mantle and slowly hesitantly rested her knee on the edge of the large bed He observed her through lowered lashes still not betraying his wakefulness The girl carefully climbed onto the bedclothes and onto him wrapping her thighs around him Leaning forward on straining arms she brushed his face with hair which smelled of chamomile Determined and as if impatient she leaned over and touched his eyelids cheeks lips with the tips of her breastsYou get the gist I knew right away it would be sexist garbage with this hero going around killing things and every woman throwing herself at him in passion And now that I ve finished this book I can attest It totally is Why did I read this then Well the Netflix adaptation came out and Henry Cavill was there flipping his hair Fabio style and then I couldn t understand why he killed a certain character in episode one and wanted to see if the book would help me outWaste of time This is a load of dated retrograde men centered misogynistic nonsense with dubious logic and no understanding of morality or human nature The book is a collection of not very good short stories that to some degree utilize famous fairy tales but poorly There is a reimagining of Beauty and the Beast with a rapist Beast who for some reason we are supposed to have empathy towards and whom Geralt is eager to help remove the curse why how did this Beast redeem himself by having sex with women sold to him by their parents Or Snow White in which Snow White is implied to have had sex with all the dwarves and been a prostitute after being raped by the Hunter Of course Geralt inexplicably takes the side opposite Snow White s I am still scratching my head over this one Some boring elf thing and a jinn thing And pardon me but did Yennefer actually consent to what was happening in that last story Does Sapkowski know what consent is All of this is just underwhelming Sapkowski mostly has no idea what he is talking about especially when women are involved He is wrong on basically every subject he cares to bring up women rape desire fertility disability Whatever serious thing he tries to write about he is always out of his depthThere is something that did keep me reading the book I think it s the world building potential Hopefully the show builds on it I am not very far into it but so far they ve managed to smooth some edges and entwine story lines effectively and the Witcher himself is less of an asshole and of a moody broody type I personally prefer Although I am not exactly wild about Yennefer s transformation story lineWe ll see how it goes Keep flipping your hair and wielding your swords Henry Maybe I ll stick around just for you

People Geralt turned his head like to invent monsters and monstrosities Then they seem less monstrous themselves I have loved this series for many years now When I read it it was arguably the least famous one among my favourite fantasy series The Witcher Saga by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski is still something of a diamond in the rough with its own very particular sense of raw beauty This is not something I d recommend to just about anyone but I would call it absodamnlutely amazing without a moment of hesitation While it is not a part of the main saga per se The Last Wish is definitely my favourite Witcher book It s a collection of tales about a man hunting monsters for money And it s amazingly good It is also definitely the place to start reading Witcher stories for those looking for a gateway into this wonderful worldLike a lot of other people I was introduced to the world of Andrzej Sapkowski through the video games The Witcher and The Witcher II Assassins of Kings These are easily some of the best fantasy RPG s ever made I would certainly recommend them to all the gamers here and they made me want to know about this fascinating world And as much as love the books I will continue to insist that the recent third game in the series The Witcher III Wild Hunt is the single greatest contribution to the Witcher universe let alone the greatest fantasy RPG of our timeDo not make the mistake of thinking these are mere tie in novels however Whether you come from the games or from the Netflix adaptation keep in mind that this is the source material and where the original ideas are found The adaptations in other media were based on the books not the other way around and should be viewed that way And not only that but the games are seuels to the books and thus the books should by all means be read first That does not mean you cannot enjoy them if you ve already played the games but to fully experience this wonderful saga in the best way possible reading the books first is the way to goSapkowski introduces the reader to a beautiful combination of Slavic mythology a distinct eastern European setting and classical high fantasy That makes for a different read from a lot of other works within the genre while at the same time keeping all the mandatory aspects of epic fantasy magic elves kings The writing is almost lyrical but in a relaxed manner and the English translation is good But the characters and the setting are what really makes this a great novel Geralt of Rivia is the most interesting and fascinating protagonist in the fantasy genre bar none and the world in which he lives is in many ways different from all others His one true love Yennefer of Vengerberg is one of my favourite fantasy characters of all timeThe creativity when it comes to the setting is brilliant The whole concept of Witchers human mutants bred and trained to slay monsters is extraordinarily fascinating And the monsters themselves no less so You have well known monstrosities like vampires and werewolves legendary creatures like chimeras and manticores and the most interesting of them all the deadly striga Most of the world is built on the foundations of fairytales and mythology mainly Eastern European but Sapkowski forges it into something truly astoundingThe narrative is also really well constructed The book opens up with a frame story set in a Temple of Melitere where Geralt is recovering from his injuries From there he tells stories of his greatest exploits every now and then going back to the present for a short interlude While each story is modelled on a classic fairytale they always add something uniue and distinctly flavourfulThis is as mentioned earlier a collection of short stories about the witcher Geralt riding around the countryside talking to people killing the occasional monster and riding on Sometimes he accepts a contract from a peasant sometimes from a king All that matters is the reward If what you re looking for while reading fantasy is just an epic story of wars and politics and intrigue you could probably just skip this and continue on to the Witcher Saga itself starting with Blood of Elves But you would really miss somethingI loved this book both for its simplicity and for its beautiful descriptions and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who loves fantasy especially those who would like to try something a little differentWitcher reviews 1 The Last Wish 2 Sword of Destiny 3 Blood of Elves
