I would go to war for him.

The Last Wish - Andrzej Sapkowski

I fell in love. Again.

I came by this book via The Witcher video games series (love them) and it took me 3 games to finally read it.

 

I am so glad I finally did!

Seriously, I have been waiting forever for a character like Geralt of Rivia - "White Wolf", the Butcher of Blaviken, the Witcher - a monster hunter who possesses superhuman abilities, and is a master swordsman.
He is a lone mutant who destroys evil and continuously leads the war with the bloodthirsty monsters that threaten peace of people.

 

Smart, loyal, strong.

I am completely charmed by his character.

For the sake of this man, I would have raised a sword and would have fought by his side. I would share his fate. 

The Last Wish is an exceptional series of 7 main fantasy short stories reminding of a brutal and real fairy-tales interpretation.
It starts with Geralt, after having been injured in battle, rests in a temple of Melitele in Ellander. During that time he has flashbacks to recent events in his life — each of which forms a story of its own.

The whole book was nothing I have ever read before and I am planing to continue with the series as soon as I get my hands to the second book.
