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.
His targets are the deadly monsters that ravage the land and attack the innocent. He roams the country seeking work, but comes to realise that while some of his quarry are unremittingly vile, others are the victims of sin, evil or simple naivety.
Following the adventures of the previous short stories collection, The Last Wish, this anthology is not just another great read, but an essential one. Why, you ask? Because we are introduced to some of the most amazing (main) characters in the fantastical world Sapkowski has created, and we get a real glimpse of how destiny plays in this powerful universe . . .
Six stories to immerse yourself into, where a plot starts to form and forging bonds is sudden and unexpected—or is it? Destiny seems some kind of a foreign word to Geralt, no doubt certain events/revelations taking place during his journey prove to be quite challenging, especially if he keeps denying what is right in front of him . . . Trust me, you really don’t want to miss any of this! How everyone is connected, what they say and how they act, open the gate of a hell of a mind-blowing story, and perhaps it will even make you shed a tear—or two. Who said it has to necessarily be a sad one?
Engaging, magical, and touching. Read this anthology before starting to lose yourself in the first novel, you won’t regret the greater feeling you’ll get by doing so.
