Description

NOW A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES
 
Geralt the Witcher battles monsters, demons and prejudices alike in Sword of Destiny, the second collection of adventures in the New York Times bestselling series that inspired the Netflix show and the hit video games.
 
Geralt is a Witcher, a man whose magic powers, enhanced by long training and a mysterious elixir, have made him a brilliant fighter and a merciless assassin. Yet he is no ordinary murderer: his targets are the multifarious monsters and vile fiends that ravage the land and attack the innocent.
 
The Sword of Destiny is the follow up to The Last Wish, and together they are the perfect introduction to a one of a kind fantasy world.

And look out for The Tower of Fools, book one of Andrzej Sapkowski's Hussite Trilogy!

    I read all the books before watching the series. I can’t believe I’m giving a fantasy 5 stars, I’m mostly a sci-fi fan, but this is an extraordinarily great series of books. My time is limited so when I read for pleasure, it has to be good. Highly recommend.

    I cannot believe I am giving a 5-star review for a fantasy collection. Spend the time to read the preceding collection to setup an afternoon by the winter fire. Or just read it.
  • Another excellent work

    I’ve not looked into the author but he’s a man who understands the complexity of combat and injury. I throughly enjoyed this work.

    The Sword of Destiny is brilliant. This second short story collection exemplifies what is so great about the Witcher series. It is a perfect balance of emotional drama, delightfully portrayed action, and cerebral philosophy. This book is one of the best in the series. It has all the previously mentioned keystones of the Witcher without all of the jarring derailments and cumbersome politics of the later novels.

    Riveting and intriguing as always, The Sword of Destiny is even better than The Last Wish. It combines authentic fairy tale telling with unexpected twists. Love, betrayal, violence, and 50+ other adjectives can describe the Sword of Destiny. Must Read!
