The Shepherd's Crown

The Shepherd's Crown

A Tiffany Aching Novel

Summary

Tiffany Aching has finally got her wish.

She is a witch (and a respected one, at that). Overworked and underpaid, that’s for certain, but a witch nonetheless.

Help is at hand though. In the form of young Geoffrey and his goat. Geoffrey wants to be a witch too, and thinks he can save the world by building sheds. Well, everyone has to start somewhere.

But as new friends are made, and old ones return, enemies are stirring. With her beloved chalk in jeopardy, Tiffany will face the toughest challenge of her life.

There will be a reckoning . . .

‘Brilliant . . . This is a book worth reading twice in quick succession’

Reviews
