Publisher's Summary

At nine, Tiffany Aching defeated the cruel Queen of Fairyland. At 11, she banished an ancient body-stealing evil. At 13, Tiffany faces a new challenge: a boy. And boys can be a bit of a problem when you're 13.

But the Wintersmith isn't exactly a boy. He is winter itself: snow, gales, icicles, all of it. When he has a crush on Tiffany, he may make her roses of ice, but his nature is blizzards and avalanches. 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. Tiffany will need 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.

Share the fantasy: listen to more of Tiffany's adventures in The Wee Free Men (Unabridged) and A Hat Full of Sky (Unabridged).

    "clean up your own mess"

    Tiffany must learn what happens when you dance with winter. The girl must learn how to end the story by herself. Good thing Tiffany is good at endings.

    Story
    "Tiffany is my spirit animal"

    As a grown woman who clearly remembers my child/teenagerhood I'm always blown away by an old man's ability to write a young girl. I grew up wanting to see girls like this in stories, girls I could identify with. The references to her 'Not Crying', her reactions when she finally loses her cool, and being flattered by the attention of the Wintersmith are all brilliant.

    I also think the plot and theme are handled with the brilliance that one generally expects from Mr Pratchett and everything feel polished and well constructed. I and my inner child absolutely identify with and adore this book.

    Story
    "Delightful"

    The Feagles are unsurpassed as characters of fun -- and marvelous satire. And Tiffany is such a wonderful character. But one of the reasons this book (and the other 3 of the series) is so enjoyable to hear is the narrator, Stephen Briggs. He gets the dialects just right.

    "Excellent book with one exception"

    The music between chapters is actually quite annoying

    The story is quite good however and the wee free men make the entire thing

    "Horace v The Luggage?"

    I'm now torn about my favorite character in the series. I loved The Luggage, mainly for the fantasy of taking it through LAX international terminal. But, Horace (no spoiler, you'll have to find out) might be edging up as a favorite.
    I would love to see a Horace v Luggage smack down...

    "Music???"

    This is a great story and performance but the music added nothing and was really rather disconcerting.

    "Excellent!"

    Terry Pratchett's best series is the Tiffany Aachen books. I love the way he weaves ancient myths and traditions into a corner of the Discworld.
