Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a series you can sink your teeth into."―BuzzFeed News

"Delightful, intense, irreverent, and compelling....you have to read The Witcher books because they are rife with all of the elements that make you love fiction, and especially fantasy, in the first place....In a word, The Witcher delivers."―
Hypable

"One of the best and most interesting fantasy series I've ever read."―
Nerds of a Feather

"Like Mieville and Gaiman, [Sapkowski] takes the old and makes it new ... fresh take on genre fantasy."―
Foundation

"Sapkowski has a confident and rich voice which permeates the prose and remains post-translation. I'd recommend this to any fan of heroic or dark fiction."―
SF Book Reviews

About the Author

Andrzej Sapkowski is the author of the Witcher series and the Hussite Trilogy. He was born in 1948 in Poland and studied economics and business, but the success of his fantasy cycle about Geralt of Rivia turned him into an international bestselling writer. Geralt’s story has inspired the hit Netflix show and multiple video games, has been translated into thirty-seven languages, and has sold millions of copies worldwide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Condition, Fast Shipping, A Series I Can’t Put Down!
By Tyler Rice on November 15, 2021
After watching the Netflix show, I knew I had to read the books. I was really happy with my purchase. All the books were in great condition (a necessity as a collector). I also received the exact cover that was displayed for sale (including the somewhat-ugly red sticker that is part of the cover art and non-removable). Shipping-wise, I received my order in 4 days, which I was really impressed with. If you plan on getting these books and can afford to buy them all at once, do so. I received a multi-buy discount which saved me $5. A series that is really easy to read and expands on the world of The Witcher.
