Publisher Description

Terry Pratchett's final Discworld novel, and the fifth to feature the witch Tiffany Aching.

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. . . .

    - George R. R. Martin, #1 New York Times bestselling author
  • “Pratchett’s final work is a tour de force of compassion, great wit, and gleeful storytelling. He will be missed.”

    - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
  • “With the warmth, humor, and assurance of an old friend, Stephen Briggs…delivers this fifth Tiffany Aching Adventure with all his heart…This is a special book—Pratchett’s last. One can hear Briggs summoning up the voices of the Pictsies, Hags, and Wizards one more time as he heads for a worthy conclusion to a saga that only Pratchett could conjure.”

    - AudioFile
  • “Pratchett leaves his fans with one last glorious tale of Discworld…Though this title was written during Pratchett’s final days, there is nothing rushed here; indeed, this final book stands among the very best of his work…Readers [will] mourn the loss of such an irreplaceable writing talent. Verdict: Readers young and old will savor this tale that emphasizes the values of hard work and standing firm in the face of evil. An exceptionally crafted finale from one of the greats.”

    - School Library Journal
  • “His storytelling is pure magic, and fans will grieve anew that this is the last of it. Stock up.”
