The Last Wish: Introducing The Witcher

The New York Times bestselling series that inspired the international hit video game: The Witcher
Geralt of Rivia is a witcher. A cunning sorcerer. A merciless assassin.

And a cold-blooded killer.

For fans of the video game and the uninitiated alike, The Last Wish is the opening chapter of The Witcher series.
