The Last Wish (The Witcher #05) by Andrjez Sapkowski - A Review

Today's review is about The Last Wish by Andrjez Sapkowski which belongs to The Witcher series.

I knew that The Witcher books existed but it was the Netflix TV show that pushed me to start reading them and of course I loved the first one I read.

The writing and the world building are amazing and I cannot wait to read the rest of the books. 
This one is a collection of short stories and it's kind of a prequel to the main series. We are introduced to Geralt and Dandelion (Jaskier int the show) and the rest of the world. The stories are re-imaginings of classic fairy tales like Snow White and The Beauty and the Beast. It is also fast-paced and action packed which is something I really appreciate in fantasy books (and in books in general).

I also liked that the stories are connected between them and they act like flashbacks in Geralt's story. They work like they are a full novel and not a collection of stories. 

Synopsis from Goodreads
Introducing Geralt the Witcher - revered and hated - who holds the line against the monsters plaguing humanity in the bestselling series that inspired the Witcher video games and a major Netflix show.
Geralt of Rivia is a Witcher, a man whose magic powers and lifelong training have made him a brilliant fighter and a merciless assassin.
Yet he is no ordinary killer: he hunts the vile fiends that ravage the land and attack the innocent.
But not everything monstrous-looking is evil; not everything fair is good . . . and in every fairy tale there is a grain of truth.

I loved reading The Last Wish and I can highly recommend it!
