Geralt de Riv is a sorceleur, 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. He roams the country seeking assignments, but gradually comes to realise that while some of his quarry are unremittingly vile, vicious grotesques, others are the victims of sin, evil or simple naivety. One reviewer said: 'This book is a sheer delight. It is beautifully written, full of vitality and endlessly inventive: its format, with half a dozen episodes and intervening rest periods for both the hero and the reader, allows for a huge range of characters, scenarios and action. It's thought-provoking without being in the least dogmatic, witty without descending to farce and packed with swordfights without being derivative. The dialogue sparkles; characters morph almost imperceptibly from semi-cliche to completely original; nothing is as it first seems.Sapkowski succeeds in seamlessly welding familiar ideas, unique settings and delicious twists of originality: his Beauty wants to rip the throat out of a sensitive Beast; his Snow White seeks vengeance on all and sundry, his elves are embittered and vindictive. It's easily one of the best things I've read in ages.'

A throughly enjoyable read, I picked this up on a trip to Poland at Wroclaw railway station (just happened to have a copy in english for tourists). Sapkowski's approach to fantasy is unique, rather than over indulging in the lore of the land he focuses on humanity (often the more seedier aspects) and morality. every action has a consequence and there is no good or evil only shades of grey and it is left to the, supposedly emotionless, witcher geralt to make the right decisions.

FYI for the reviwer above, one of the three main books "the blood of the Elves" is due out in September. I hope to see the rest follow.
