Soul Music

Soul Music

(Discworld Novel 16)

Summary

'This didn't feel like magic. It felt a lot older than that. It felt like music.'

Being sixteen is always difficult, but it's even more so when there's a Death in the family. Susan hasn't exactly had a normal upbringing, with a skeletal Grandfather who rides a white horse and wields a scythe.

When Death decides he needs a well-earned break, he leaves Susan to take over the family business. The only problem is, everyone mistakes her for the Tooth Fairy . . .

Well, not the only problem. There's a new, addictive music in Discworld. It's lawless. It changes people. It's got a beat and you can dance to it.

It's called Music With Rocks In.

And it won't fade away . . .

Soul Music is the third book in the Death series, but you can read the Discworld novels in any order.

Reviews

  • 'Pratchett lures classical themes and popular mythologies into the dark corners of his imagination, gets them drunk and makes them do things you wouldn't dream of doing'
