“People”—Geralt turned his head—“like to invent monsters and monstrosities. Then they seem less monstrous themselves.”
The first book of The Witcher anthology by Andrzej Sapkowski introduces Geralt of Rivia and the world of the Witcher. 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 hunter. Yet he is no ordinary killer. His sole purpose: to destroy the monsters that plague the world. But not everything monstrous-looking is evil and not everything fair is good . . . and in every fairy tale there is a grain of truth.
Bound to look like Geralt’s armor and featuring the pendant of the Witchers, this book is filled to the brim with tales of magic, chaos, djinn, intrigue, romance, daring rescues and escapes, politics, warring empires, monsters, and plans within plans. Exploring the lands of the Four Kingdoms of Kaedwen, Temeria, Redania, Aedirn, the reaches of the Nilfgaard empire, to the far off territories of Barsa, Skellige, Barsa, Hannu, Ofir, Zangvebaror, or the Northen Isles, to the homey comforts of Kaer Morhen, the Witcher series builds a world of adventure and danger. Along the way, encounters and entanglements with a wide cast of characters – the Princess Ciri, the powerful sorceress Yennefer, Queen Calanthe, Fringilla, Vesemir, Emhyr, the bard Jaskier, and countless others – help to aid (or hinder) him on his quest.
Measuring 9.5 x 6.3 x 1.2″ and weighing approximately 1.6 lbs, this illustrated leatherbound tome will complete any Witcher’s collection (or start them on their journey). Additional volumes in the series are available by request.
