A wonderful introduction to the rich, unique world of the Witcher franchise. A story that hits the ground running and drops you in the middle of its lore and magic and feeds you information bit by bit rather than hands you large pieces of exposition. It simultaneously tells the current tale of a recovering Geralt, as he tells stories of his own adventures. A very enjoyable lead in to a great line of books and games.

But not everything monstrous-looking is evil and not everything fair is good. . . and in every fairy tale there is a grain of truth.
