Book a Week: Weeks 39-43, Book 25

I read The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski. This is the first book in The Witcher series. I have loved playing the video games, and I'm anxious to see the new series. I wanted to make myself more familiar with the actual source material, so I ordered all of the books. That's eight in all. This is an interesting first book because it's a collection of short stories that are loosely connected. It was fun to read about these characters I already knew. Some of the stories were in the games, but some were new to me. I especially liked how fairly tales were explained through the true histories of the events. I'm looking forward to the next book.

"Shut up, Civril. Immediately."
Civril stopped laughing. Immediately.

They fell, shattering the stair balustrade and, with a deafening crash, landed on the table. The table had the right not to withstand the blow, and it didn't.

Bonus points for the usage of castellan, congress (2) , scarpered, investiture (2), and voivode.
