Young Pteppic is a trained assassin at Ankh-Morpork’s esteemed Assassins’ Guild. He’d also suddenly king of Djelibeybi, and not quite prepared for the job. Terry Pratchett’s seventh Discworld adventure is set in an exotic kingdom, where gods and pyramids play havoc with a new ruler!
An educated prince, not quite educated enough in the art of running a country, soon finds his new kingdom overun by the gods and overuled by a high priest. In the face of a giant meddlesome pyramid causing disruption to time and space, Pteppic’s fine education at the Assassin’s Guild may not be enough to smooth the situation. Terry Pratchett revisits the complications of royal dynasties in the pages of his seventh Discworld novel, Pyramids.
