Author(s): Andrzej Sapkowski
The New York Times bestselling introduction to the Witcher series that inspired the Witcher video games.

Geralt is a witcher.
Yet he is no ordinary killer-for-hire.
His sole purpose: to destroy the monsters that plague the world.
But not everything monstrous-looking is evil and not everything fair is good. . . and in every fairy tale there is a grain of truth.
