Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"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)

Synopsis:

Return to the witty, wizardly world of the Chronicles of Kazam with the fabulous follow-up to The Last Dragonslayer.

Synopsis:

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. . . .

Synopsis:

Magic has been in a sad state in the Ununited Kingdom for years, but now its finally on the rise, and boneheaded King Snodd IV knows it. If he succeeds at his plot, the very future of magic will be at risk! Sensible sixteen-year-old Jennifer Strange, acting manager of Kazam Mystical Arts Management and its unpredictable crew of sorcerers, has little chance against the king and his cronies—but theres no way Kazam will let go of the noble powers of magic without a fight. A suspenseful, satirical story of Quarkbeasts, trolls, and wizidrical crackle!
