The conclusion of the loose trilogy formed by Wyrd Sisters and Witches Abroad. It's often known as the 'Witches' trilogy, but really it could just as easily be known as the 'Magrat' trilogy. It's one that sees her transformation from spinster witch and 'wet hen' to queen of Lancre and a much more independent woman.

Lords and Ladies also has some of the best humour in the series. The scene with Nanny Ogg being seduced by Count Casanunda, dwarf, highwayman, and the world's second best lover, has to be read to be believed.

It's also the only book I've ever read to get elves right. Because elves are not nice, and Pratchett gets that.
