(Discworld Novel 35)
The third tale in a gloriously inventive fantasy sequence of tales about Tiffany Aching - young witch - and the Nac Mac Feegle - the Wee Free Men.
Tiffany Aching is a trainee witch - now working for the seriously scary Miss Treason. But when Tiffany witnesses the Dark Dance - the crossover from summer to winter - she does what noone has ever done before and leaps into the dance. Into the oldest story there ever is. And draws the attention of the wintersmith himself...
As Tiffany-shaped snowflakes hammer down on the land, can Tiffany deal with the consequences of her actions? Even with the help of Granny Weatherwax and the Nac Mac Feegle - the fightin', thievin' pictsies who are prepared to lay down their lives for their 'big wee hag'...
“Pratchett's one-liners, the comic dialogue of the Feegles, the satire about teenagers and the credulousness of the ordinary folk make for a characteristically entertaining mix.”
“One of the best and funniest authors alive”
“Head and shoulders above even the best of the rest. He is screamingly funny. He is wise. He has style . . . Splendid”
“Oodles of dry wit, imagination and shrewdly observed characters”
Independent on Sunday
“The combination of Pratchett's genius for writing deadpan humour and Robinson's genius for reading it is a match made in heaven.”
