A chilling, plucky yet playful novel for older children, and adults. Tiffany Aching’s magic has woken an evil being who has a intense loathing for all things witch. The Cunning Man is something that Tiffany has to face on her own, yet she needs help, thank goodness for The Wee Free Men and Granny Weatherwax. Please do note that while Tiffany started in The Wee Free Men as a young girl, she is now very nearly 16, and this, her fourth novel, has a deeper, darker mood that I feel is more suitable for teenagers. No matter how many times I read Terry Pratchett’s novels, his words affect me deeply, one moment sadness overwhelms, while in the next a well needed roar of laughter overtakes me while blowing a raspberry. I simply adore I Shall Wear Midnight, it touches every mood, shakes thoughts and tickles feelings, The Tiffany Aching novels are for me, a most definite must read. ~ Liz Robinson

The Tiffany Aching Discworld books are in order:

I Shall Wear Midnight Synopsis

Tiffany Aching is a witch alone. Well, that's how she feels. Everyone seems so, apart. People respect her, but also fear her. There are loads of secrets she can't share. And when the Baron dies, and Tiffany is framed for his murder, it's clearer than ever that she is, well...Not liked Now Tiffany must journey to Ankh-Morpork, to inform the Baron's heir, Roland, of his father's death. But on the way she meets something that likes witches very much...A bit too much - an evil ball of spite and malice that has only now woken up. And is out to get witches everywhere...
