Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

I really, really enjoyed this book ... None of the characters in Sapkowski's world are black or white; they are all shades of grey, including Geralt and the monsters. The Deckled Edge
It is [his] world-weariness combined with his battle-boned powers that make Geralt such an interesting character. Here's hoping The Last Wish is merely the opening chapter in his English language adventures. Edge
Sapkowski is very good at creating interesting, imaginative characters with unusual levels of depth to them ... The Last Wish is an enjoyable book full of stories both melancholy and comic. The Wertzone
This beautifully written character-based story from Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski ... a refreshing champion. The Specusphere
The Witcher delivers one of the most intense and rewarding role-playing experiences this year. GT Reviews on The Witcher video game
New battle mechanics, a fantastic storyline, and a gritty setting make The Witcher one of the most engrossing, mature RPGs to arrive on the PC in years. Gamespot.com on The Witcher video game
Sapkowski's The Last Wish is a great collection of short stories centered around a witcher, Geralt - a rare sorcerous breed who hunts down the monstrous but is feared by the innocent. With a wondrous mix of Eastern European folklore and myth, beautiful princesses, mischievous demons and where all is not as it seems, The Last Wish is a great read - perfect for dipping into or just reading cover to cover, as I did. Waterstones
Sapkowski has a phenomenal gift for narrative, inventing sensational events, creating a suggestive mood, and building up the suspense along with a dazzling, slightly cynical sense of humor. Jacek Sieradzki, Polityka on The Last Wish
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
"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
“Like Miéville and Gaiman, Sapkowski takes the old and makes it new.” Foundation, praise for the author
Like a complicated magic spell, a Sapkowski novel is a hodgepodge of fantasy, intellectual discourse, and dry humor. Recommended. Time
Like Mieville and Gaiman, [Sapkowski] takes the old and makes it new ... fresh take on genre fantasy. Foundation on The Last Wish
"A breath of fresh air in a well-worn genre. Don't miss it! Dreamwatch
“Sapkowski revitalizes the genre with energetic and compelling writing. A breath of fresh air in a well-worn genre. Don’t miss it!” Dreamwatch, praise for the series
