10+: I Shall Wear Midnight - Terry Pratchett

Release Date: 02/09/10


A man with no eyes. No eyes at all. Two tunnels in his head ...It's not easy being a witch, and it's certainly not all whizzing about on broomsticks, but Tiffany Aching - teen witch - is doing her best. Until something evil wakes up, something that stirs up all the old stories about nasty old witches, so that just wearing a pointy hat suddenly seems a very bad idea. Worse still, this evil ghost from the past is hunting down one witch in particular. He's hunting for Tiffany. Andhe's found her...A fabulous Discworld title filled with witches and magic and told in the inimitable Terry Pratchett style, I Shall Wear Midnight is the fourth Discworld title to feature Tiffany and her tiny, fightin', boozin' pictsie friends, the Nac Mac Feegle (aka The Wee Free Men).


The latest offering in the Young Adult Discworld series by Terry Pratchett featuring Tiffany Aching and everyones favourite discworld blue skinned clan, the Nac Mac Feegles.

The tale is beautifully interwoven with country myth and folklore alongside Terry’s wonderful way of weaving a story which when blended alongside the usual Pratchett quirks and the Feegles, leave the reader in no doubt that he has still got it. Add to the mix another member to the clan returning “home” alongside a cracking supporting cast, great dialogue and magical understanding of pace and you know that it’s going to be a gem of a story.
