But as Tiffany pursues her calling, an insidious, disembodied creature pursues Tiffany. When it strikes, neither Mistress Weatherwax (the greatest witch in the world) nor the six-inch-high Wee Free Men (the greatest thieves in the world) can save her.
Outrageous comedy blends with pulse-racing suspense in this compelling sequel to The Wee Free Men.

"Compelling and hilarious. Stephen Briggs's superb narration brings to life the trials, setbacks, and triumphs of Tiffany, as well as Pratchett's trademark humor. Briggs's performance is finely tuned and gives clear nuance to the characters." (AudioFile)
There are some really beautiful, lyrical bits in this book, as well add some great character moments and the narrator does a fine job with them. I really enjoyed it.
Having read this before reading the other witch books, I had a different perspective on Granny Weatherwax. I highly recommend revisiting Pratchett's works rather than having one read through and thinking that is all one can get. Reading a Discworld novel once would be like tasting a single piece of chocolate and never having another bit out of the sampler box.
Yet another nail-biting story by Terry Pratchett and a masterful performance by Stephen Briggs. I bought this book a few days ago and now have to wait a whole month before I can continue the adventures of Tiffany and the Wee Free Men. Hooray for witches and common sense!
Loved every moment of it.
I also appreciated it more after reading Pratchett's short story in A Blink of the Screen, which features many of the same characters, in another annual witches' trials.
