There are fairy godmothers, and then there are Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick!
In Terry Pratchett’s sixth Discworld book with a new cover design for 2022, the Lancre coven gather together to protect a royal baby as they face the consequences of a right royal murder!
‘Destiny is important, see, but people go wrong when they think it controls them. It’s the other way around.’
Meet the Lancre witches Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg, Magrat Garlick! This magical cast of characters takes centre stage in Terry Pratchett’s bewitching Discworld novel, but even witches can’t control the complications of reinstating a royal dynasty when the struggle for the throne of Lancre turns… theatrical.
A child heir and the royal crown, both missing. Witches don’t have these kinds of leadership problems themselves – in fact, they don’t have leaders. Granny Weatherwax is the most highly regarded of the leaders they don’t have.
But even she finds that meddling in royal politics is a lot more complicated than certain playwrights would have you believe. Particularly when the blood on your hands just won’t wash off . .
Wyrd Sisters is the second book in the Witches series (but you can read the Discworld novels in any order!).
