‘It’s vital to remember who you really are . . . it isn’t a good idea to rely on other people or things to do it for you, you see. They always get it wrong. ‘
The Unseen University is suffering a serious case of sourcery in Terry Pratchett’s fifth Discworld book! Ankh-Morpork’s ancient seat of learning is in the hands of a wizard squared, the eighth son of an eighth son of an eighth son with more power than any young lad should be trusted with. This young sourcerer is not the all-powerful pinnacle of wizardry the faculty had hoped for, and only one wizard manages to escape his influence. Unfortunately for everyone, it’s Rincewind.
With the death of all wizardry at hand, and the end of the world, depending on who you listen to, Rincewind must transport the Archancellor’s hat to safety with the help of a hair-dressing barbarian, the Luggage, and the University’s long-limbed Librarian – will the world’s worst wizard save the Discworld from another mage war?
Sourcery is the third book in the Wizards series and fifth novel in the Discworld canon, (but you can read the Discworld novels in any order!).
