Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Terry was one of our greatest fantasists and beyond a doubt the funniest.” George R. R. Martin, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Pratchett’s final work is a tour de force of compassion, great wit, and gleeful storytelling. He will be missed.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“With the warmth, humor, and assurance of an old friend, Stephen Briggs…delivers this fifth Tiffany Aching Adventure with all his heart…This is a special book—Pratchett’s last. One can hear Briggs summoning up the voices of the Pictsies, Hags, and Wizards one more time as he heads for a worthy conclusion to a saga that only Pratchett could conjure.” AudioFile
“Pratchett leaves his fans with one last glorious tale of Discworld…Though this title was written during Pratchett’s final days, there is nothing rushed here; indeed, this final book stands among the very best of his work…Readers [will] mourn the loss of such an irreplaceable writing talent. Verdict: Readers young and old will savor this tale that emphasizes the values of hard work and standing firm in the face of evil. An exceptionally crafted finale from one of the greats.” School Library Journal
“His storytelling is pure magic, and fans will grieve anew that this is the last of it. Stock up.” Booklist
