Publisher's Summary

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.

Wonderful!

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!

great story

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.

Pratchett nails it as always, narration was OK

I've been a fan of Pratchett since I was a child, this wasn't a book I had read and I was glad of the chance to listen to it. I am a fan Tony Robinson on the TV however I don't feel narration is quite his thing, which surprised me, but I couldn't listen to his narration of Wyrd Sisters at all. This was one of his better ones but I still hunted around to see if I could find it narrated by someone else. Overall it's an amazing story and well worth the time to listen.

Pratchett’s finest!

Witty, poignant, and heart warming! Terry Pratchett has combined all of his skills in his last completed work. Loved every word!

brilliant, poignant & funny

Maybe not as polished as other stories (understandably in the circumstances) but a brilliant addition to the discworld legacy.
