<b>Now a Netflix original series!</b><b><br /></b><b>A deadly coup within the Wizard's Guild leaves the Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, gravely injured, and his ward Ciri missing in the third book of the <i>NYT</i> bestselling series that inspired the blockbuster video games. </b><b><br /></b> The Wizards Guild has been shattered by a coup and, in the uproar, Geralt was seriously injured. The Witcher is supposed to be a guardian of the innocent, a protector of those in need, a defender against powerful and dangerous monsters that prey on men in dark times. <br />But now that dark times have fallen upon the world, Geralt is helpless until he has recovered from his injuries. <br />While war rages across all of the lands, the future of magic is under threat and those sorcerers who survive are determined to protect it. It's an impossible situation in which to find one girl -- Ciri, the heiress to the throne of Cintra -- until a rumor places her in the Niflgaard court, preparing to marry the Emperor. <br />Injured or not, Geralt has a rescue mission on his hands. <br /><b>Andrzej Sapkowski, winner of the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement award, started an international phenomenon with his Witcher series:</b><b><br /></b><b>Witcher novels</b><i>Blood of Elves <br />The Time of Contempt<br />Baptism of Fire </i><i>The Tower of Swallows</i><i>Lady of the Lake</i><i>Season of Storms</i><i><br /></i><b>Witcher collections</b><i>The Last Wish</i><i>Sword of Destiny</i><br /><i>The Malady and Other Stories: An Andrzej Sapkowski Sampler</i> (e-only)<br />Translated from original Polish by David French

With his life in pieces and nothing to keep him tethered, Shadow accepts a job from a beguiling stranger he meets on the way home, an enigmatic man who calls himself Mr. Wednesday.

<b>Volume 7 of The Beginning After The End</b><br /><br /><i>Not every human, elf, or dwarf could be equally important to me, and that's a fact that I had accepted long ago. I was here to serve my role, to help end this war, but it wasn鈥檛 for world peace or to save mankind鈥攊t was so, one day, I could lead a comfortable and happy life with the people I loved and cared for.</i><br /><br />Arthur Leywin has experienced two lifetimes of challenge and adventure. He has lived as a swordsman, a mage, an adventurer, and a king. Now his two lives, old and new, will collide, revealing the connection between King Grey and Arthur Leywin, but at what cost? And how will this affect the ongoing war between the nations of Alacrya and Dicathen? Enemy forces threaten the coastal cities, the elven forests, and the fortified mountain passes; Dicathen鈥檚 most powerful allies have vanished; and the military alliance between men, elves, and dwarves threatens collapse. Arthur may be the last hope for his people, but when forced to choose between family and country, where will his loyalty lie?

I know I did!" -Erin Bedford, USA Today bestselling author of Grinding Lightning.<br />"Another great story from K.N. Lee that pulls you in from the very beginning. With pirates, dragons, magic and mermaids; this is a book to hit every one of your favorite topics. It was a quick read that leaves you to wanting more. After I finished reading all I was hoping was that there was a second story to come. Like always, K.N. Lee was able to depict a story that you get immersed in, along with you falling in love with the characters."- M.M. Chabot, author.<br />"Don't blink. This short-form, high fantasy offering from KN Lee packs so much into it, you should plan to read it twice. Once because you can't put it down, and again to catch everything you miss the first time through. All the emotions are accounted for...now if the author would just give me the answers already. Book II can't hit soon enough." -Savannah Verte, award-winning author of Viva Zapata<br />"K.N. Lee has brought us dragons in a way you've never seen them before. I can't wait to read the rest of the series!"- S.J. Cairns, bestselling author of Soul Discovery<br />"With a gentle touch but real emotions, Half-Blood Dragon uses magic, adventure, love, and betrayal to give us a mirror for our own society. Through the entire book, we meet characters who are stripped of choices solely because of things they can't control about their "blood."I'm really intrigued to see where the next two books take us. There are so many questions we need answers to. I want to know more about the Red Dragon, what Rickard really wants, what's going to happen to Rowen, and will Gavin ever have a moment where he doesn't get on Elian's nerves, LOL! Great job to K.N. Lee and hoping the sequels come soon!"- Cait Reynolds, bestselling author of Downcast.
