en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 27 Aug 2013
Regii și armatele lor își pun în aplicare manevrele de luptă fiecare temându-se de celălalt. Intrigi, dezertori și rebeliuni se găsesc în fiecare tabără.
Elfii și alte făpturi non-umane încă suferă de pe urma decadelor de represiune la care au fost supuși, iar unitățile de gherilă bine ascunse în inima pădurii își înmulțesc membrii, dar și atacurile fulgerătoare.
Magicienii se luptă între ei, unii fiind în solda regilor, alții simpatizând cu cauza elfilor.
În acest climat de nesiguranță și teamă, Geralt și Yennefer, aleasa inimii lui trebuie să o protejeze pe Ciri, moștenitoarea orfană și vânată din toate părțile.
Deoarece profeția zace pe umerii ei și dincolo de viață sau moarte doar ea deține cheia puterii de a salva această lume.
Sau de a-i aduce sfârșitul.
Întreaga serie de cărți stă la baza jocului cu acelasi nume: The Witcher.

The Time of Contempt
Baptism of Fire
Andrzej Sapkowski was born in 1948 in Poland. He studied economy and business, but the success of his fantasy cycle about the sorcerer Geralt of Rivia turned him into a bestselling writer. He is now one of Poland's most famous and successful authors.
"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
"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!"—Fantasy Book Review
"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
"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
"It is [his] world-weariness combined with his battle-honed 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
"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
"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
The Lady of the Lake is, without any doubt, the best and most profound fantasy novel I have ever read. It is hard to put down, yet also a challenging and deeply rewarding book. And it is genuinely moving. I have never read a fantasy series like this, and suspect I never will again."—Nerds of a Feather on The Lady of the Lake
