Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Look after the dead,” said the priests, “and the dead will look after you.” Wise words in all probability, but a tall order when you have just become the pharaoh of a small and penniless country whose largesse—and indeed treasury—is unlikely to pay for the construction of a monumental pyramid to honor your dead father.

Synopsis:

Synopsis:

No. 7 in the Discworld opus: Teppic, a student assassin on Ankh-Morpork, must return home to claim the throne of Djelibaybi on his fathers death. But High Priest, Dios, is running the show and manipulates Teppic into constructing a pyramid for his father. And the magic just keeps building up.
