    Wonderful, as always!

    As with all of the Discworld novels, I found this story quite engaging and enjoyable. It follows up on the story of Tiffany Aching and includes the Feegles. I really didn't expect how it would end, which made it even better.

    Powerful themes, flawed execution

    *Word to the wise: the opening act of this book is much darker than nearly anything else in the Discworld series, involving descriptions of and references to severe domestic violence. Discretion is advised, especially if you’re reading Pratchett’s books with children.* The fourth Tiffany Aching book, “I Shall Wear Midnight” pits a 16 year old Tiffany against the spirit of witch-hatred and prejudice. The book features a fully trained Tiffany, confident in her abilities and her place in the world. A few new faces and some surprising reappearances add some additional detail that help to situate Tiffany’s stories more comfortably alongside the main Granny Weatherwax sequence and the City Watch sequence. Unfortunately, like many of his books from around 2010 onward, the quality of the writing really suffers due to Pratchett’s illness — bloated dialogue, long rambling descriptions, plot issues, and a general decline in wittiness. This is not something to fault the author for. But it is regrettable, especially given the heavier themes of this instalment and the new developments the characters and world receive. With some editing, this could have been one of the more powerful and poignant novels in the series. But as it is, it lands flat. This one is recommended only for Discworld completionists or major fans of the witches in particular.

    What a lovely shade of midnight!

    Terry pratchett was a wizard with words and casts a spellbinding tale full of mystery and intrigue in this book! A joy from start to finish!

    I Shall Wear Midnight

    Outstanding. A fast moving story that keeps you reading, laced with Terry Pratchett's unique humour.
