The Last Wish

Book source ~ Home library
Danusia Stok ~ Translator
31 January 1993
Dark Fantasy | Anthology
360 Pages

My Rating ~ 4 bites

This anthology introduces the Witcher named Geralt of Rivia. I think I figured out that the passages titled The Voice of Reason are when Geralt is healing at the temple after dealing with a striga and the other chapters are short stories involving his monster hunting.  It’s all a bit confusing. I’m not sure if it’s the translation or if the original text is like this, but it tends to go on and on and on and not in a good way. The way people talk is confusing and tedious a lot of the time, but if you can wade through it there are great stories here. Love the world and Geralt.
