Wiedzmin Ostatnie Zyczenie by Andrzej Sapkowski
The first Polish edition was published in  and the first English edition was first published in The collection contains seven short stories interspersed with a continuing frame story : Geralt of Rivia , after having been injured in battle, rests in a temple. During that time he has flashbacks to recent events in his life, with each flashback forming a short. The King of Temeria, Foltest, has offered a reward to anyone who can lift the curse on his daughter, Adda the result of an incestuous union with his late sister , who was born as a striga , and now terrorizes the town every night. Foltest insists that his daughter not be harmed, but reluctantly grants Geralt permission to kill her if Geralt decides that Adda cannot be returned to human form. A more difficult question, to which Geralt can give no certain answer, is whether Adda, who has been a monster her whole life, can live as a "normal" human even if the curse is lifted.
