    Story
    (84)

    The show must go on, as murder, music, and mayhem run riot in the night. The Opera House, Ankh-Morpork, is a huge, rambling building, where innocent young sopranos are lured to their destiny by a strangely familiar evil mastermind in a hideously deformed evening dress.

    Gil says: "Maskerade doesnt hit the high notes"
    "Classic Terry Pratchett"

    I typically have enjoyed Nigel Planers reading of the Discworld novels, this performance does not disappoint!

    Laughed allowed on many occasions!

  • Before They Are Hanged: The First Law: Book Two

    Story
    (2308)

    Bitter and merciless war is coming to the frozen north. It's bloody and dangerous and the Union army, split by politics and hamstrung by incompetence, is unprepared for the slaughter that's coming. Lacking experience, training, and in some cases even weapons, the army is scarcely equipped to repel Bethod's scouts, let alone his elite forces. In the heat-ravaged south, the Gurkish are massing to assault the city of Dagoska, defended by Inquisitor Glokta.
