Geralt the Witcher -- revered and hated -- holds the line against the monsters plaguing humanity in this collection of adventures in the NYT bestselling series that inspired the blockbuster video games.
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 assassin. Yet he is no ordinary murderer: his targets are the multifarious monsters and vile fiends that ravage the land and attack the innocent.
But not everything monstrous-looking is evil and not everything fair is good...and in every fairy tale there is a grain of truth.
Andrzej Sapkowski, winner of the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement award, started an international phenomenon with his Witcher series. The Last Wish short story collection is the perfect introduction to this one of a kind fantasy world.

I was thinking because this is a mass paper its gonna be thin like some other mass paper novel out there, but this was not. the paper was thicker than usual mass paper, and the cover is kinda glossy and has texture (which is nice) with the new illustration in which Geralt was faced with a dragon.
As for the story well, i havent read all of it but if u played the game this is a must to read.
The book that started it all. The beginning of one of the best video game of all time--The Witcher 3. But, regardless you're a fan of the video game series or not this is a MUST READ for fantasy lovers. Not your usual fantasy book.
