Captivating, often nerve-wracking, and truthfully . . . rip-roaring fun * Fantasy Hive * Refreshing and a lot of fun to read * Grimdark Magazine * There's lots of imagination on show, the writing has a strong voice, and the Witcher is an entertaining character * Mark Lawrence * Like Mieville and Gaiman, [Sapkowski] takes the old and makes it new . . . [a] fresh take on genre fantasy * Foundation * One of the best and most interesting fantasy series I've ever read * Nerds of a Feather * Sapkowski has a confident and rich voice which permeates the prose and remains post-translation. I'd recommend this to any fan of Heroic or Dark fiction * SF Book * Delightfully dry humour, mythology brimming with radical creatures and a group of interesting characters, The Last Wish is a great introduction to this universe * Fantasy Book Review * Character interplay is complex, unsentimental and anchored in brutal shared history * SFX * Like a complicated magic spell, a Sapkowski novel is a hodge podge of fantasy, intellectual discouse and dry humour. Recommended * Time Magazine *.
