The second in a series of Discworld novels starring the young witch Tiffany Aching. Something is coming after Tiffany. . . . Tiffany Aching is ready to begin her apprenticeship in magic. She expects spells and magic—not chores and ill-tempered nanny goats! Surely there must be more to witchcraft than this! What Tiffany doesn't know is that an insidious, disembodied creature is pursuing her. This time, neither Mistress Weatherwax (the greatest witch in the world) nor the fierce, six-inch-high Wee Free Men can protect her. In the end, it will take all of Tiffany's inner strength to save herself . . . if it can be done at all.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Pratchett’s ear for dialogue is superb…His deep feeling for landscape, animals, kindness and courage make his adventures deeply satisfying as well as clever.” Times (London)
“Oodles of dry wit, imagination, and shrewdly observed characters.” Independent on Sunday (London)
“An enthralling and rewarding read. What’s not to love about a girl who takes on vicious monsters armed with only a frying pan?”  Publishers weekly (starred review)
“Wonderful language, genuinely scary explorations and a young girl whose growing up is believable and exciting.” Chicago Tribune
“Fantastically inventive and humorous fantasy adventure. Fans will be sky high.” Sunday Times (London)
“Pratchett weaves a tale that isn’t afraid to detour into biting satire or to stop and admire a mot particularly juste, but that keeps returning to the critical question of identity—how an individual must embrace her worst aspects to become her best self, how worth is found in works, not in posturing…By turns hilarious and achingly beautiful…just right.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“A great Pratchett strength is the sense that if the jokes…were dropped there would still be a good, engaging fantasy thriller here.” Independent (London)
“Readers will curl up to read with a sigh of contentment.” Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
