Terry Pratchett’ eighteenth Discworld adventure, now with a new cover design for 2022. The Opera House in Ankh-Morpork is home to music, theatrics and a harmless masked Ghost who lurks behind the scenes. But now a set of mysterious backstage murders may just stop the show in Discworld’s fifth Witches book . . .
‘There’s a kind of magic in masks. Masks conceal one face, but they reveal another. The one that only comes out in darkness . . .’
Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg have travelled to Ankh-Morpork to convince young Agnes that life as a witch is much better than one on the stage at the Opera House, a huge, rambling building, where innocent young sopranos are lured to their destiny by a strangely-familiar evil mastermind in a mask with a penchant for lurking in shadows and occasional murder. Opera can do that to a man. However, Granny Weatherwax doesn’t hold with that sort of thing, and with Discworld’s most powerful witches in the audience there’s going to be trouble …but the show MUST go on!

‘Funny, delightfully inventive, and refuses to lie down in its genre’ – Observer
Maskerade is the fifth book in the Witches series (but you can read the Discworld novels in any order!).
