Review: Wintersmith (Discworld #35, Discworld Children #3) by Terry Pratchett

Wintersmith by Terry Pratchett

Tiffany Aching is apprenticed to Ms. Treason for the time being, who has some interesting equipment and is 106. While apprenticed, Tiffany dances her way into a rather unfortunate tale, and ends up with 'Winter' (or the be more precise, the Wintersmith) mooning after her. The Nac Mac Feegle as usual bring all sorts of hilarity and a dubious amount of protection. A rather rambunctious blue cheese also comes along for the ride.

Pratchett's Tiffany Aching series of books are all wonderful and this one is no exception. There are the usual references to other books, and all the amusing hallmarks of his works. What makes this series great is that the Nac Mac Feegle just don't get old in their attempts to do protect Tiffany. This time they're worried about the 'Pursing of the Lips' that keldas do.

Tiffany grows up a bit in this story so there's some romance which makes sense. This book seems to almost be a coming of age story of course with witches making ironic, amusing, and inappropriate comments. (The comments are not R rated of course)

Star Rating: 3.0/5.0
