Publisher's Summary

There are many who say that the art of diplomacy is an intricate and complex dance between two informed partners, determined by an elaborate set of elegant and unwritten rules. There are others who maintain that it's merely a matter of who carries the biggest stick. Like when a large, heavily fortified and armoured empire makes a faintly menacing request of a much smaller, infinitely more cowardly neighbour. It would be churlish, if not extremely dangerous, not to comply; particularly if all they want is a wizard, and they don't specify whether competence is an issue.
©1996 Terry and Lyn Pratchett (P)1996 Corgi Audio

Critic Reviews

It's Pratchett, obviously it's good.

Brilliantly funny commentary on the culture of East vs West, Tony Robinson's voices are hilarious if borderline racist on occasion but he's baldrick so I'll forgive him, classic Rincewind fantasy adventure.
