Thought this was worth a post for any Terry Pratchett / Discworld fans for this new book - nice Xmas prezzy for the fan for sure; The Book Depository have it at a decent £9 but elsewhere:-
A man with no eyes. No eyes at all. Two tunnels in his head . . .
It’s not easy being a witch, and it’s certainly not all whizzing about on broomsticks, but Tiffany Aching – teen witch – is doing her best.Until something evil wakes up, something that stirs up all the old stories about nasty old witches, so that just wearing a pointy hat suddenly seems a very bad idea.Worse still, this evil ghost from the past is hunting down one witch in particular. He’s hunting for Tiffany. Andhe’s found her . . .
A fabulous Discworld title filled with witches and magic and told in the inimitable Terry Pratchett style, I Shall Wear Midnight is the fourth Discworld title to feature Tiffany and her tiny, fightin’, boozin’ pictsie friends, the Nac Mac Feegle (aka The Wee Free Men).
From the Inside Flap
‘I’m feared for the big wee hag…’
Tiffany Aching is a witch. And she thinks she’s doing a good job for the people of the Chalk. Even if the job does seem to involve a lot of bandaging legs and not much, well, magic.
But somewhere – some time – there’s a tangled ball of evil and spite, of hatred and malice, that has woken up. And it’s waking up all the old stories too – stories about evil old witches.
Suddenly Tiffany isn't so sure she's doing the right thing. And her tiny allies - the fightin' Nac Mac Feegles - are only making things more difficult.
Things are supposed to look better after a good night’s sleep.
But they won’t.
They’re about to get a lot, lot worse . . .
