Publisher Comments:

Every world has its rules—even a flat onecarried by four elephants riding on a giant turtle. That's why a dying wizard is searching for an eighth son of an eighth son to bestow his wizardly powers upon before meeting Deathin six minutes. Unfortunately it is quicklydiscovered—though not quite quickly enough—that the newborn babe the wizard anoints just before bidding the Discworld adieu is, in reality,a girl! What's done cannot be undone—despiteold Granny Weatherwax's attempts to bringthe child into the witchy fold—and little Eskis now a wizard, through and through. And she's destined to bring chaos and confusion to the all-male faculty of Ankh-Morpork'sUnseen University . . . who are alreadyfairly addled to begin with.

Synopsis:

In Equal Rites, New York Times bestselling author Terry Pratchett brings readers back to Discworld, a fantasy universe where anything can happen—and usually does.

A dying wizard tries to pass his staff on to the eighth son of an eighth son. When it is revealed that the he is a girl named Esk, the news of the  female wizard sends the citizens of Discworld into a tail-spin.
