What’s the correct order?


Here's the order for all of the Witcher series of books. Can recommend them.

Series 1 of the Netflix show is based on The Last Wish but has had to create Yennefer's backstory (it doesn't exist in the books) and pull some of Ciri's story in from later books (if I remember correctly) otherwise the characters don't cross over much. For example I'm sure Yennefer only appears in one short story in The Last Wish.

The Last Wish (short story collection)
Sword of Destiny (short story collection)
Blood of Elves (beginning of novels)
Time of Contempt
Baptism of Fire
The Tower of Swallows
Lady of the Lake

The best video game of all time. Hated it at first, invested the time, blew my mind.

Picked up the books after playing it, really good read. If you are interested in reading the whole trilogy, make sure you check the order as I found amazon had the book numbers incorrect compared to how the author intended.

Yet to watch the Netflix series...

December of 2019, the month of disappointments:
-Star Wars
-The Expanse
-The Witcher (that one is the biggest waste of time)


But The Witcher books are worth every penny

You are not easy to please.
Read the books, played the games (not as much as I should). And I am enjoying the show. It's not amazing but then I wasn't expecting much.

No, the first season is based of two first books. C'mon people
The Sword of Destiny (first)

  • The Bounds of Reason = Episode 6 Rare Species
  • A Shard of Ice = not depicted but the story concludes the love triangle
  • Eternal Flame = not depicted but the halfling characters you see in TW3 are first mentioned here
  • A Little Sacrifice = not depicted, changed entirely
  • The Sword of Destiny = not depicted, which is a major travesty as the TV show would have made more sense if this one was included.
  • Something More = Episode 7-8 however Geralt's flashback memories of the book are incorporated into the present time of the TV show
The Last Wish (second)

  • The Witcher = Episode 3 Betrayer Moon involving Geralt vs Striga
  • A Grain of Truth = not depicted, it's a standalone story involving the bruxa though
  • The Lesser Evil = Episode 1 - The End's Beginning
  • A Question of Price = Episode 4 - Of Banquets...
  • The Edge of the World = Episode 2 - Four Marks
  • The Last Wish = Episode 5 - Bottled Appetites

Henry Cavill is doing such an amazing job of portraying Gerald. I came to the show with not much high expectations, but I was so surprised with his acting, especially the voice and the moves.

Release order. First three books are short stories and are all over the place, so technically main story starts after 3rd book but you still need the 1-3.

Same boat as you really had to try and get into the game it's really not my sort of thing but after playing it wow what a masterpiece my favourite of all time

There is another book about The Witcher published in 2013 which is set between the stories from the first book The Last Wish

He thought about the voice he used...

Correct, hence I said they are based on the books and show is not based on the games.
Bought, thanks for posting
Thanks

Correct, I was agreeing with you. (?)

Although let’s be honest, Cavill and many parts of the production are borrowing liberally from the game whether they admit to it or not.
