The Witcher series. Andrzej Sapkowski,

The Witcher series ( 1-7) . Andrzej Sapkowski.  A Polish writer of sword and sorcery books, Sapkowski paints intense word pictures of other worlds that gently touch on ours.  There is a overriding arc to the stories which allows all the series to be brought together at the very end. Recurring characters, embedded stories and myths make the total more than each individual title. The titles are;   The last Wish, The Sword of Destiny, Blood of Elves, The Time of Contempt, Baptism of Fire, The Tower of Swallows, Lady of the Lake .

The books are full of action, and sympathetic characters.   Netflix has a TV series The Witcher.  There is a set of Witcher video games.
