The Witcher Synopsis: Blood of Elves is the first novel in The Witcher series by Andrzej Sapkowski. For more than a hundred years, humans, dwarves, gnomes, and elves have lived together in relative harmony. But times have changed, the uneasy peace is over, and now the races are once again at war. It appears that the only good elf is a dead elf. Geralt of Rivia, the cunning assassin known as The Witcher, has been waiting for the birth of a prophesied child. This child has the power to change the world – for good, or for evil. As the threat of war hangs over the land and the child is hunted for her extraordinary powers, it will become Geralt’s responsibility to protect them all – and the Witcher never accepts defeat.
