Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a series you can sink your teeth into."―BuzzFeed News

"Delightful, intense, irreverent, and compelling....you have to read The Witcher books because they are rife with all of the elements that make you love fiction, and especially fantasy, in the first place....In a word, The Witcher delivers."―
Hypable

"One of the best and most interesting fantasy series I've ever read."―
Nerds of a Feather

"Like Mieville and Gaiman, [Sapkowski] takes the old and makes it new ... fresh take on genre fantasy."―
Foundation

"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 Reviews

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful hardcover version...with some nitpicks
By Kevorsk on November 14, 2022
Hardcover Release Physical review:

Beautiful looking book, with amazing art in the covers, great color scheme and a very nice map drawn on the first and last page. Unfortunately the cover art is printed in a flimsy looking paper. The actual hardcover is neat but nowhere near cool as the outer sleeve. Im afraid the outersleeve will tear easily. I wish they had made it sturdier and figured out a way to stick it to the actual hardcover.

I havent read the book yet so I cant review it, but I wanted to show some pics so that other buyers know what to expect. See photos.
