Book Synopsis



NOW A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES

This special boxed set includes the first three novels in Andrzej Sapkowski's New York Times bestselling epic fantasy saga--the books that inspired the hit Netflix show and the blockbuster video games.

For over a century, humans, dwarves, gnomes, and elves have lived together in relative peace. But times have changed, the uneasy peace is over, and now the races are fighting once again. The only good elf, it seems, is a dead elf.

Geralt of Rivia, the cunning assassin known as The Witcher, has been waiting for the birth of a prophesied child. This child has the power to change the world -- for good, or for evil.

As the threat of war hangs over the land and the child is hunted for her extraordinary powers, it will become Geralt's responsibility to protect them all--and the Witcher never accepts defeat.

In Blood of Elves, The Time of Contempt, and Baptism of Fire, Sapkowski brings a fresh new voice to fantasy fiction, creating something wholly original in this dark and exciting world of magic, monsters and witchers.

Review Quotes




A breath of fresh air in a well-worn genre. Don't miss it!--p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 16.0px Calibri; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000}span.s1 {font-kerning: none}Fantasy Book Review

The universe of Sapkowski's The Witcher is one of the most detailed and best-explored in modern fantasy, offering endless opportunities for fresh ideas ... Complex character relationships enrich this already complex world; this is the sort of series fantasy fans will cherish.--B&N

The Witcher delivers one of the most intense and rewarding role-playing experiences this year.--GT Reviews on The Witcher video game

Like a complicated magic spell, a Sapkowski novel is a hodgepodge of fantasy, intellectual discourse, and dry humor. Recommended.--Time

One of the best and most interesting fantasy series I've ever read. Though it functions well as adventure fiction, it has added depth and value as satire and commentary on fantasy literature ... Sapkowski is a genuine stylist.--Nerds of a Feather

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