The Last Wish

The Last Wish Introducing the Witcher

The Last Wish is a collection of six short stories and the first book of The Witcher series. The stories relate the exploits of Geralt and demonstrate all the skills that he has developed. These stories told in the Last Wish are excellent and eventful but this book has a bad side: The writing is laborious. Because of this, you have to read some paragraphs more than once. However, The Last Wish is fun and has enough variety in each story to keep the pages turning.

Sword of Destiny

Sword of Destiny

Blood of Elves

Unlike The Last Wish, dialogues of Blood of Elves is more fresh and comprehensible. Blood of Elves signifies a sharp departure from The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny.. Because, this is the first full-lenght novel. This book comes to life in its latter part, as Geralt does some traditional Witcher stuff. Blood of Elves’s key weakness is that not a huge amount happens.

The Time of Contempt

The Time of Contempt

The Time of Contempt, the second full-lenght novel in this series, continues where Blood of Elves left off. Also, this book is action-packed, war-filled and political. The bad side of the book is that there are too many people in it. That’s why you can’t remember their names. Also, this book upset those who love Geralt, as it focuses more on Ciri and Yennefer.

Baptism of Fire

Baptism of Fire

Like the other books, Baptism of Fire keeps going several scheming fraction and political intrigue. In this book, Geralt’s character growth is incredible but it’s difficult to read. Also, if you went into this series expecting to see Geralt to do Witcher stuff, you’ll be disappointed.
