I Shall Wear Midnight (Discworld)by Terry Pratchett
Synopses & Reviews
Teen witch Tiffany Aching returns for a new Discworld adventure — along with her ever-present allies, the Nac Mac Feegle.
Tiffany Aching, the young witch from The Wee Free Men, A Hat Full of Sky and Wintersmith is back in a new adventure featuring Discworld characters both familiar to fans (like Granny Weatherwax) and new (meet Wee Mad Arthur, the Nac Mac Feegle on the City Watch). Oh, and there's a shambles, a twist through time, a Cunning Man — and a Giant Man of chalk.
From the Hardcover edition.
"At once touchingly poignant and uproariously hilarious, this novel is a splendid goodbye to a batch of characters who will be missed by readers who still must admit that, with this fourth volume, their stories have been well and thoroughly told." Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)
As the witch of the Chalk, Tiffany Aching performs the distinctly unglamorous work of caring for the needy. But someone — or something — is inciting fear, generating dark thoughts and angry murmurs against witches. Tiffany must find the source of unrest and defeat the evil at its root. Aided by the tiny-but-tough Wee Free Men, Tiffany faces a dire challenge, for if she falls, the whole Chalk falls with her. . . .
