At age nine, Tiffany Aching defeated the cruel Queen of Fairyland. At eleven, she banished an ancient body-stealing evil. At thirteen, Tiffany faces a new challenge: a boy. And boys can be a bit of a problem when you’re thirteen …

But the Wintersmith isn’t exactly a boy. He is Winter itself—snow, gales, icicles—all of it. And he wants Tiffany to stay in his gleaming, frozen world—forever.

Tiffany will need all her cunning to make it to spring. She’ll also need her friends, from junior witches to the legendary Granny Weatherwax—and the Wee Free Men, too! She’ll have the help of the bravest, toughest, smelliest pixies ever to be banished from Fairyland—whether she wants it or not. It’s going to be a cold, cold season, because if Tiffany doesn’t survive until spring—spring won’t come.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Derrick | 2/15/2014

    " Liked it more than the second book, less than the first book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Emily | 2/15/2014

    " Another charming installment in Terry Pratchett's Tiffany Aching YA novels. Not quite as coherent as A Hat Full of Sky, but still utterly enjoyable, with more of Tiffany's education in witching and return supporting appearances from the Nac Mac Feegle, Granny Weatherwax, and Nanny Ogg. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Rachel VB | 2/6/2014

    " Terry Pratchett is a genius, a crafter of stories, his writing is flawless, his humour will have you laughing wherever you are. Go on, read a tale of Discworld, you won't regret it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Hannah | 1/24/2014

    " I'm in the minority of finding the Tiffany Aching books really hard work and really slow going. It took me 3 days to read 50 pages, and then I finished it on the last day because of a 5 hour train journey with no room to knit, crochet or watch a DVD on the journey. Nevertheless it's still a great book, and now I only have 3 Discworld books to go until I'm finished! :C "
