A beautiful hardback edition of Terry Pratchett’s very last Discworld book – the one you may not want to read but really should.
The Big Wee Hag becomes Queen Bee in the final Tiffany Aching story is a remarkable forty-first Discworld novel starring all your favourite witches, feegles, elves and an especially intelligent goat.
“Witches know that people die; and if they manages to die after a long time, leavin’ the world better than they went an’ found it,well then, that’s surely a reason to be happy. All the rest of it is just tidyin’ up.”
Tiffany stands between the light and the dark, the good and the bad. A shivering of worlds, deep in the Chalk. 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. The fairy horde prepares for invasion and Tiffany must summon all the witches to stand with her to protect her land.
Written in the grip of his ’embuggerance’ The Shepherd’s Crown should be read with tissues to hand..
The Discworld Collector’s Library is a stunning hardback collection of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series, with cover artwork by Joe McLaren.
