Deep in the Chalk, something is stirring. The owls and the foxes can sense it, and Tiffany Aching feels it in her boots. An old enemy is gathering strength. This is a time of endings and beginnings, old friends and new, a blurring of edges and a shifting of power. Now Tiffany stands between the light and the dark, the good and the bad.

A joyful sign-off from a master of fantasy fiction ... High-octane literary enjoyment. -- Nicholas Tucker

Terry Pratchett was never so witty, direct and generous as in this, his final Discworld novel. -- Amanda Craig

The Shepherd's Crown is a sometimes sad, often funny and eminently suitable testament to the life and career of Terry Pratchett. -- David Barnett
