With the third season of the popular Netflix show finally out, fans are looking for The Witcher book series order. Is there an order of the books penned by Andrzej Sapkowski? If so, is it best to read The Witcher book series in order of release date or some way else? Here’s what you need to know.
What is The Witcher book series order of release?
Here’s The Witcher book series in order of release date.
- Sword of Destiny (1992)
- The Last Wish (1993)
- Blood of Elves (1994)
- Time of Contempt (1995)
- Baptism of Fire (1996)
- The Tower of the Swallow (1997)
- The Lady of the Lake (1999)
- Season of Storms (2013)
The Witcher book series was published from 1992 to 2013, with a long hiatus between 1999 and when the latest (and likely last) installment was published. However, there is a better way to read the book series than the release order.
What is the best way to read The Witcher books?
The best way to read The Witcher books is the following:
- The Last Wish
- Season of Storms
- Sword of Destiny
- Blood of Elves
- Time of Contempt
- Baptism of Fire
- The Tower of the Swallow
- The Lady of the Lake
While The Last Wish was published after Sword of Destiny, it’s actually the entry point into the series. This book is a collection of short stories that serve as an introduction to the character of Geralt of Rivia and The Continent. Season of Storms is a standalone novel that fans seem to set either before the events of the main series or at the same time with the events of The Last Wish.
