Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Like a complicated magic spell, a Sapkowski novel is a hodgepodge of fantasy, intellectual discourse, and dry humor. Recommended. Time
“It’s refreshing to see another take on familiar elements. There’s a fairy-tale quality to much of The Last Wish.” SFX magazine
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 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. Barnes&Noble.com
“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 magazine

Fantasy Fantastic

I am increasingly impressed with the talented voice of Peter Kenny. His character voices are perfect and the continuity helps illustrate the story of the Witcher in a way, perhaps, my own voice could not capture. Highly recommend this series!
