Deep in the Chalk, something is stirring. 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.
Now Tiffany stands between the light and the dark, the good and the bad. As the fairy horde prepares for invasion, Tiffany must summon all the witches to stand with her. To protect the land. Her land. There will be a reckoning.

I'm so glad Terry Pratchett's last book is about Tiffany Aching and the witches. To me they are some of his finest characters, full of immense humour and compassion and love for humanity, as is this book.
Tony Robinson's narration is superb: his choice of accent is absolutely flawless, and his pace and dramatic interpretation perfect for the book. I laughed out loud on several occasions.
I don't normally like reading or listening to abridged texts, but I thoroughly recommend this one.
Vale Terry Pratchett, and Bravo Tony Robinson!
Not Terrys best but still brilliant if you have read all other disk world novels this will really pull on your heart as two of Terrys favorite characters finish up their story. I hope that others that have collaborated with Terry in the past can carry on the disk world series as a tribute to the wonderful world that Terry has constructed. Rest in piece Terry and thank you for the stories and the many laughs your characters will all be remembered fondly.
"Another excellent story brought to life by Tony."
Tony Robinson brings these great Terry Pratchett novels to life. An excellent narrator teamed with the best wordsmith of our life time.
really great book, excellent reading, really enjoyed the way the characters were bought to life.
"Great read and a found and sad farewell, "
Great books are crafted by great minds and we have lost a great one. The book was again a great triumph over adversity
"A fitting end"
The written text is better as has more detail but I wanted to hear Tony Robinson tell the final tale.
There is much bittersweet sentiment and I admit to a little cry every now and again thats never happened with a discworld book before!
Tony's voice has been the voice of many a Pratchett book to me, no more so than the Nac mac feegals!
A few teary moments but a flood at the end!
