    Tiffany Aching has spent years studying with senior witches, and now she is on her own. As the witch of the Chalk, she performs the bits of witchcraft that aren't sparkly, aren't fun, don't involve any kind of wand, and that people seldom ever hear about: She does the unglamorous work of caring for the needy. But someone - or something - is igniting fear, inculcating dark thoughts and angry murmurs against witches.

    Overall

    To say I’m a bit of a fan of Terry Pratchett is to understate my affection considerably. However the part of the Pratchett cannon that I have never been that keen on are the “Witches” books. It’s not that they aren’t entertaining, I just never found them as compelling as others. So I picked up this edition with slight trepidation. As it turns out I need not have worried. This book is a terrific read; it stands well on its own and is better than any of the previous Witches novels. Pratchett weaves together magic, psychology and medicine together into a completely believable self consistent world which touches on many other aspects of Disc. Like most Pratchett fans I was concerned to read about the health problems he is having, but it appears that it hasn’t impacted his ability to tell a funny, clever touching and compelling story which entertains all ages. I have always found the Nac Mac Feagles the most annoying of the Disc World characters. In this book however they are enormously entertaining; they even make a strange kind of sense. There is a segment where they wreck a pub causing great trouble for our heroine Tiffany. To set things right they completely rebuild it…back to front. If you are a Pratchett fan you will love this book, if you aren’t, read this and will rapidly become one.
