It seems like I enjoy each book that I read of Terry Pratchett's a little more than the previous one. While Witches Abroad still ranks as my favorite so far, I thought this follow up book in the Discworld Witches subgenre was just as good. Pratchett creates strong female characters and his everyday run of the mill people characters who rise to heroic hights when necessary are very believable. Of course not all his characters are heroic, the cowardly magician Rincewind being the notable exception. Rincewind doesn't make an appearance in this one, although some other wizards do, notably Mustrum Ridcully and the Librarian, who is one of my all time favorite characters in any novel or series I've read.
It helps to have read the previous "Witches" Discworld books before reading this one, although I don't think it's completely necessary.
One thing about this one though, be prepared to look at those noble, beautiful, good Elves from Middle Earth in a totally different light after reading this one...
5 stars from me.
