Outrageous comedy blends with pulse-racing suspense in this compelling sequel to The Wee Free Men.

Tiffany Aching—the boldest heroine ever to swing a frying pan against the forces of evil—is beginning her apprenticeship in magic. She expects to work hard, learn spells, and become a witch. She doesn’t expect to find herself doing chores, caring for the careless, and trying to outthink an ill-tempered nanny goat. There must be more to witchcraft than this!

But as Tiffany pursues her calling, an insidious, disembodied creature pursues Tiffany. When it strikes, neither Mistress Weatherwax (the greatest witch in the world) nor the six-inch-high Wee Free Men (the greatest thieves in the world) can save her.

    Chicago Tribune

  • “Fantastically inventive and humorous fantasy adventure. Fans will be sky high.”

    Sunday Times (London)

  • “Pratchett weaves a tale that isn’t afraid to detour into biting satire or to stop and admire a mot particularly juste, but that keeps returning to the critical question of identity—how an individual must embrace her worst aspects to become her best self, how worth is found in works, not in posturing…By turns hilarious and achingly beautiful…just right.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “A great Pratchett strength is the sense that if the jokes…were dropped there would still be a good, engaging fantasy thriller here.”

    Independent (London)

  • “Readers will curl up to read with a sigh of contentment.”

    Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Melynna | 2/12/2014

    " I just reread this, and it's even better this time. Now that I have the witch novels under my belt, I understand a few things a little more deeply. Plus, the Nac Mac Feegle will never loose their humor for me. Awesome book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Cory Hughart | 2/3/2014

    " I don't have much to say. I can't just keep heaping praises on the Discworld series, yes, even the YA titles, because that's just redundant. And I'm not going to bother writing a summary, because you ARE going to read this book, and hopefully the rest of the series. And besides, I'm too impatient and eager to get on with the next book "

    " Tiffany, the wee free and granny -- superb "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Eileen | 1/30/2014

    " This main character has integrity, modesty, and a passionate desire to be her best self. The little people who are her loyal friends made me laugh repeatedly with their wacky antics and their backward code of honor, until they wormed their way into my heart as well. "
