Description

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).

Back cover copy

A man with no eyes. No eyes at all. Two tunnels in his head . . .

Somewhere - some time - a tangled ball of evil and spite, of hatred and malice, has woken up. And now it's waking up all the old stories - all the intolerance and prejudice about evil old witches.

Suddenly young witch Tiffany Aching is caught up in the rumours and lies. And her tiny allies - the totally amoral, boozin', fightin' Nac Mac Feegles - are only making things worse . . .

A terrific Discworld tale,filled with Terry Pratchett's inimitable blend of wit, insight and magical storytelling.

'Pratchett brings us reflections on the role of women, the dangers of religion and the follies of society.And, writing at the height of his powers, he makes us laugh a lot' Sunday Times
