Setelah selesai baca seri A Song of Ice and Fire dan menuliskan resensi masing-masing buku, saya punya niat untuk membaca seri The Witcher. Niatnya lagi saya akan menulis resensi setiap bukunya. Lumayan kan blog ini jadi rajin update. Seandainya nanti resensi saya asal-asalan dan terkesan malas, mohon dimaklumi ya. 😀

Jadi, The Last Wish adalah buku pertama, yang entah kenapa di Goodreads nomornya ditulis 0.5, dari seri The Witcher. Dia merupakan kumpulan cerpen tentang Geralt of Rivia. 

Geralt of Rivia is a witcher. A cunning sorcerer. A merciless assassin. And a cold-blooded killer. His sole purpose: to destroy the monsters that plague the world. But not everything monstrous-looking is evil and not everything fair is good… and in every fairy tale there is a grain of truth.

Geralt adalah seorang witcher. Pekerjaan witcher itu membunuh monster-monster yang mengganggu dan membahayakan. Setelah witcher berhasil membunuh monster, maka dia akan meminta bayarannya ke masyarakat atau orang penting yang berada di daerah tersebut. 

Menjadi seorang witcher itu tidak mudah. Ada syarat khususnya juga. Sementara witcher semakin sedikit jumlahnya. Makanya ketika Geralt menolong Duny saat dia diserang, Geralt meminta “hadiah” berupa anak yang dikandung Pavetta.

“Duny,” said Geralt seriously, “Calanthe, Pavetta. And you, righteous knight Tuirseach, future king of Cintra. In order to become a witcher, you have to be born in the shadow of destiny, and very few are born like that. That’s why there are so few of us. We’re growing old, dying, without anyone to pass our knowledge, our gifts, on to. We lack successors. And this world is full of Evil which waits for the day none of us are left.
“Geralt,” whispered Calanthe.
“Yes, you’re not wrong, queen. Duny! You will give me that which you already have but do not know. I’ll return to Cintra in six years to see if destiny has been kind to me.”

Sepertinya season 1 The Witcher di Netflix mengambil cerita dari The Last Wish. Tidak banyak perbedaan. Yang menarik meski ini adalah kumpulan cerpen, tetapi saya membacanya seperti membaca satu cerita utuh. 

The Last Wish cukup seru ceritanya. Cerpen favorit saya yang “The Witcher” di mana Geralt bertarung melawan striga. 

Ya sudah. Segini saja resensinya. Soalnya saya bingung mau menulis apa lagi. 😆
