Description

A SHIVERING OF WORLDS

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 . . .

Review quote

"This isn't just a great Discworld book, it's extraordinary . . . A magnificent sign-off." -- Kat Brown * Daily Telegraph * "From the shadow of dementia, a brilliant novel shines: Terry Pratchett's last book is a funny, fearless farewell . . . This is a book worth reading twice in quick succession." -- Christopher Stevens * Daily Mail * "A joyful sign-off from a master of fantasy fiction . . . High-octane literary enjoyment." -- Nicholas Tucker * Independent * "Terry Pratchett was never so witty, direct and generous as in this, his final Discworld novel." -- Amanda Craig * Guardian * "The Shepherd's Crown is a sometimes sad, often funny and eminently suitable testament to the life and career of Terry Pratchett." -- David Barnett * Independent *
