Rarely does a video game adapted from a book come close to the quality of its source material, but The Witcher franchise seems to want to break every rule. The Last Wish, widely considered the first entry in The Witcher book series, is the perfect way to dive into the world of monsters and the mutant that were created to fight them. The collection of short stories introduces you to the setting, some characters, and the life that monster slayers, known as Witchers, lead.
It’s easy to pick up and read a quick entry, and every story is digestible. I played the first two Witcher video games before I picked up a book. I have to say, I believe the games captured what author Andrzej Sapkowski was trying to create, which was an incredible experience to begin with.
