Terry Pratchett's final Discworld novel, and the fifth to feature the witch Tiffany Aching.
A SHIVERING OF WORLDS
Deep in the Chalk, something is stirring. ¬The owls and the foxes can sense it, and Tiffany Aching feels it in her boots. An old enemy is gathering strength.
This is a time of endings and beginnings, old friends and new, a blurring of edges and a shifting of power. Now Tiffany stands between the light and the dark, the good and the bad.
As the fairy horde prepares for invasion, Tiffany must summon all the witches to stand with her. To protect the land. Her land.
There will be a reckoning. . . .

Even the dedication made me cry. Tiffany was my entrance into Pratchett’s books, so it seems extra-special t...
Terry Pratchett was not able to fully complete this novel before his death. This is sad but also brings us so much closer to him: In the afterword we can read how he wrote his novels, that he had several scenes on his mind and then constructed the story as he went along. Most of The Shepherd's Crown...
But otherwise I'm fine. This book has great scenes and themes in a...not so great plot. Or perhaps rather in a plot, that still would have needed some more polishing. Especially the climax felt like it was going a bit too smoothly. It was over before I could really start worrying about the charact...
