For all you Witcher fans out there counting down the days until the new game arrives, you now have TWO reasons to be excited for May 19th. Orbit is ecstatic to announce the acquisition of SWORD OF DESTINY, to be released in ebook simultaneously with the game. So much Witcher packed into one day!
In this collection of short stories, following the adventures of the hit collection The Last Wish, join Geralt as he battles monsters, demons and prejudices alike…
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. Yet he is no ordinary murderer: his targets are the multifarious monsters and vile fiends that ravage the land and attack the innocent. He roams the country seeking assignments, but gradually comes to realise that while some of his quarry are unremittingly vile, vicious grotesques, others are the victims of sin, evil or simple naivety.
For new and returning fans, SWORD OF DESTINY is the perfect new addition to The Witcher series! Look for the print edition online and in stores this December.

Praise for the novels of The Witcher:
“Like Mieville and Gaiman, Sapkowski takes the old and makes it new.”
— Foundation (UK)
“The character interplay is complex, unsentimental and anchored in brutal shared history. All bodes well for twisty plotting to come.”
“Sapkowski revitalizes the genre with energetic and compelling writing. A breath of fresh air in a well-worn genre. Don’t miss it!”
— Dreamwatch (UK)
