Fiction, Fantasy, Juvenile

Tiffany Aching is leaving the plains to go study magic with some witches of the Ramtops. Which is just as well, because the new kelda is somewhat resentful of the hold she has over the local Nac Mac Feegle clan. But no journey is without peril. and a great danger in the form of a body-stealer is drawn to Tiffany, and Tiffany will have to figure out how to defeat an enemy that has never before been defeated.

Tiffany is the sort of witch who has earned some respect from Granny Weatherwax, and if you have read any of the Discworld novels before, you understand that her respect is of a high caliber, well worth the earning. But it's lonely respect, and sometimes being the most mature teenager around isn't very comforting. (Many bibliophiles will sympathize.)

It's a children's novel, but don't let that stop you. The only difference from his standard Discworld novels is it's a little less complex and there are fewer references to popular culture.
