By the beloved and bestselling grandmaster of fantasy, Sir Terry Pratchett, this is the fourth in a series of Discworld novels starring the young witch Tiffany Aching.

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. . . .

The five funny and fabulous Tiffany Aching adventures are:
The Wee Free MenA Hat Full of SkyWintersmithI Shall Wear MidnightThe Shepherd’s Crown
Tiffany’s mentors, Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg, star in the novels Equal Rites, Wyrd Sisters, Witches Abroad, Lords and Ladies, Maskerade, and Carpe Jugulum.

And don’t miss Terry Pratchett’s hilarious and wise Discworld novel The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents!

    A bit more grown up and darker than the other Aching books, this one has a good bit of ghost story to it. It fits into a horror genre just as Feet of Clay fits into a murder-mystery genre. Aside from Discworld I tend get annoyed with how the Fantasy style of writing can sound more like a screenplay than a novel so I enjoyed this well done plot.

    By Yuthirin
    Another gem from Pratchett! Tiffany shines as a young woman, a witch on the Chalk who is just starting to understand what it means to be an adult. Endearing and masterfully written, with Pratchett's quirky sense of humor enhancing every chapter.
  • A bit darker than usual

    By JS97006
    This book, while I certainly recommend it to those who know Tiffany, doesn't contain as much of the usual funny/punny humor of a "normal" Discworld book. It's more of a tie up the loose ends sort of book.
  • Good not great

    It may be helpful to reread the previous Tiffany Aching books before reading this one. It felt like continuation of a story, told mostly to tell a story and let a beloved world grow a little more. It did not have the humor I've grown to expect from the discworld, although all the books concerning witches tend to be a bit more somber. Worth a read for those already hooked on the discworld, but not a book to hook new fans with.
