Mightily Oats has not picked a good time to be a priest. He thought he'd come to the mountain kingdom of Lancre for a simple little religious ceremony. Now he's caught up in a war between vampires and witches, and he's not sure there is a right side.

There are the witches - young Agnes, who is really in two minds about everything, Magrat, who is trying to combine witchcraft and nappies, Nanny Ogg, who is far too knowing...and Granny Weatherwax, who is big trouble. And the vampires are intelligent with fancy waistcoats and lots of style. They're out of the casket and want a bite of the future.

Carpe Jugulum is another instalment of the unstoppable and addictive cycle of Discworld and the first to star vampires.

Listener Opinions

    " Silly fantasy book about "disc world" and the witches and vampires there. Good fun. (I haven't read others in the series but don't think I missed much by just jumping in.) Good fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andre | 1/29/2014

    " Pratchett and the witches tackle vampires. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 1/27/2014

    " Everybody knows that you don't invite vampires to visit you. But the King of Lancre nonetheless invited a family of vampires to the naming of his young daughter. What's even worse is that the invitation to Granny Weatherwax, who is supposed to be godmother, has gone astray. The vampires move in, and they're modern vampires, who have learned not to fear sunlight or garlic or holy water. In fact, they can control people's minds. Young witch Agnes Nitt is more resistant than most, largely because her alter ego, Perdita, is always watching. Another delightful, slightly scary visit to Discworld's more backward regions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaclyn | 1/25/2014

    " Actually got bored towards the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Azma Humayun | 1/20/2014

    " More Discworld fun with the Lancre witches. Not as good as Wyrd Sisters though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ã…ke | 1/9/2014

    " A very good book. Terry Pratchetts characters are as charming and zany as always. The book has everything, witches, vampires, priests and little blue men. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine Schaff-Stump | 1/9/2014

    " As the wife of a Hammer film fan, and not necessarily a fan of vampire revisionism, I find the contrast between the old and the new vampirism in Pratchett's book wonderful fun. This is easily Esme Weatherwax's strongest tale as well. I would certainly recommend this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Luiz | 12/19/2013

    " It's all over the place, and not as funny as previous discworld novels. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erick | 12/17/2013

    " Go for the throat! Awesome! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 12/14/2013

    " My favourite Terry Pratchett so far. I laughed all the way through. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ray | 11/3/2013

    " usual pratchett stuff - amiable read - good one liners, plots are familiar though having read about 30 of his books "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles Spitzig | 11/1/2013

    " Pretty standard for a discworld novel. About the Witches. Funny, not hilarious. Obviously, makes fun of vampires. But it was written before Twilight, so doesn't make fun of teenagers that much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charles Spivey | 10/24/2013

    " The witches are my favorite characters in the books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leah | 8/16/2013

    " Granny Weatherwax. That's really all I have to say, isn't it? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Meger | 8/5/2013

    " Mmmmm... delightful. This is my favorite. It's got vampires and werewolves and witches and the Watch! yay! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jayne Charles | 3/23/2013

    " Not one of my favourite discworld books. The vampires were interesting characters however and I hope they reappear in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suneet Misra | 10/9/2012

    " Got to say, it's wasn't my favourite Discworld novel. I'm not sure whether that's because of the story or because it was the first book I've read on an electronic device (iPad). I guess I'll find out after The Fifth Elephant which I'm also attempting to complete on the iPad :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Will Hopkins | 6/16/2012

    " One of my first Terry Pratchett books that I bought at Waterstone's in England (Bath or York, I think). Expensive due to exchange rate, but well worth it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kendell | 10/9/2011

    " As always, Terry Pratchett's wit and social commentary shines through! Not my favorite of his witches series but a fun, sarcastic look at the Magpyre family's attempt to be modern vampyres. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandon Schroeder | 9/18/2011

    " Terry Pratchett finally takes a good stab at Vampires, in his Discworld settings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 5/9/2011

    " Excellent book! Terry Pratchett has struck gold again with this one. Not your typical vampire book, but a must-read for any vampire fans, and Pratchett fans! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 4/25/2011

    " Silly fantasy book about "disc world" and the witches and vampires there. Good fun. (I haven't read others in the series but don't think I missed much by just jumping in.) Good fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 4/21/2011

    " So far, probably among my favorites of the witches novels. I really enjoyed how Magrat came back into the fray and the jokes about being a working mother. The Igors were also quite amusing. =) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles | 3/31/2011

    " Pretty standard for a discworld novel. About the Witches. Funny, not hilarious. Obviously, makes fun of vampires. But it was written before Twilight, so doesn't make fun of teenagers that much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zana | 3/31/2011

    " Sadly, this is the last of the Discworld books for me! :( It was pretty good. Now to start the reread! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 3/26/2011

    " Bless his heart, as usual Terry Pratchett is way out ahead of the crowd in this novel of vampires and the Discworld version of political correctness published a decade before Twilight and its spawn. Plus, the magnificent Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg feature prominently. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt | 3/20/2011

    " I read this out of order, but it is one of Pratchett's better discworld novels, and they are all pretty good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chelsea | 3/2/2011

    " I still do not like the witches, but I do have to respect a book that manages to satirize books that hadn't even been written yet. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monshi | 2/17/2011

    " Very cool book with a great plot twist. Involves vampires, witches, phoenixes, and a priest... I thoroughly enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Miguel Ángel | 2/5/2011

    " Won't tell you anything, it just rocked bit time :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anthea | 1/28/2011

    " Review to be added later. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janeb7 | 1/27/2011

    " Fun fun fun. Yep. That about sums it up. "
