This July, THE LAST WISH will be coming out in trade paperback for the first time ever in the US. The Last Wish is the opening installment in Andrzej Sapkowski’s New York Times bestselling Witcher series that inspired the hit video games.
A boxed set edition of the first three Witcher novels will also be coming this fall in trade paperback. The boxed set will include Blood of Elves, The Time of Contempt, and Baptism of Fire.
These new editions are perfect for getting acquainted with Geralt of Riveria for the first time, or for a reread ahead of the Netflix TV series which was recently announced.
Praise for the Witcher series:
“Like Miéville and Gaiman, Sapkowski takes the old and make it new.”
“A breath of fresh air in a well-worn genre. Don’t miss it!”
—Fantasy Book Review
“A hodgepodge of fantasy, intellectual discourse, and dry humor. Recommended.”
“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….this is the sort of series fantasy fans will cherish.”
