The Mayan God of Death sends a young woman on a harrowing, life-changing journey in this dark fairy tale inspired by Mexican folklore. A vivid, wildly imaginative historical fantasy for fans of Katherine Arden and Naomi Novik.
The Disc's very existence is about to be threatened by a strange new blight: the world's first tourist, upon whose survival rests the peace and prosperity of the land. Unfortunately, the person charged with maintaining that survival in the face of robbers, mercenaries and, well, Death, is a spectacularly inept wizard...
Tiffany Aching is a witch alone. And when the Baron dies, and Tiffany is framed for his murder, it's clearer than ever that she is, well . . . But on the way she meets something that likes witches very much . . .And is out to get witches everywhere . . .
Tiffany Aching is going `into service': to be a lady, no less, a maid in a big house.But making friends with fellow witches is always difficult when an invisible-being-that-cannot-be-killed takes over your body - stealing money, and threatening violence. A Nac Mac Feegle of course - the rudest type of fairy, and handy to have in a tight spot .
Tiffany wants to be a witch when she grows up. And flying, she's always dreamed of flying (though it's cold up there, you have to wear really thick pants, two layers). And a witch has always protected Tiffany's land, to stop the nightmares getting through.`Quite, quite brilliant'StarburstTHE FIRST BOOK IN THE TIFFANY ACHING SERIES
