The fourth book in a gloriously inventive fantasy sequence of tales about Tiffany Aching - young witch - and the Nac Mac Feegle - the Wee Free Men.
"Teen witch Tiffany is one of Pratchett's most formidable creations yet" Time Out "As Tiffany tackles domestic drudgery and the monstrous villain, Pratchett brings us reflections on the role of women, the dangers of religion and the follies of society. And, writing at the height of his powers, he makes us laugh a lot" -- Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times "Pratchett's trademark wordplay and humor are much in evidence, but he's also interested in weightier topics, including religious prejudice and the importance of living a balanced life. Tiffany Aching fans, who have been waiting for this novel since Wintersmith should be ecstatic" Publishers Weekly "There are suprising revelations about other acquaintances in this action-packed story with dark moments lightened by humour, not least from the wonderful Nac Mac Feegles" Primary Times
