  2.  
  3. In chronological order:
  4. The Last Wish
  5. The Sword of Destiny
  6. Blood of Elves
  7. Times of Contempt
  8. Baptism of Fire
  9. The Tower of the Swallow
  10. The Lady of the Lake
  11.  
  12. Important thing: the second book, the Sword of Destiny, wasn't translated to English for unknown reasons. You can find fan translations in the links given below.
  13.  
  14. >Are all the books translated?
  15.  
  16. All up to the Baptism of Fire, except for Sword of Destiny, which was skipped.
  17. Also, there are complete translations into German, French, Russian, Portuguese and Spanish.
  18.  
  19. >Are the books essential for the enjoyment of the games?
  20.  
  21. No, but the books take place before the events of the games and there are many in-game references to the books. It's recommended to read them if you enjoyed the games.
  22.  
  23. >Does the TW2 do a recap of the first's story?
  24.  
  25. Yes, it does in one short movie (spoiler alert):

  27.  
  28. There is also a short movie explaining what witchers are:

  30.  
  31. >I'd like to play them in order, but all I hear about the first's combat makes me worry that I'll be alienated by it before I get into it.
  32.  
  33. It's all up to you. Some people don't mind the combat, some can't get over it. But you should give it a shot, especially according to the fact that the plot is, in the eyes of many fans, better than in TW2.
  34.  
  35. You could always just play it on easy to finish the combat sequences quickly.
