A Tiffany Aching Novel


Enter master story-teller Terry Pratchett’s incredible Discworld in this third book in the Tiffany Aching series . . .

Tiffany Aching is starting to realize that some witches are a bit odd . . .

When the Spirit of Winter takes a fancy to young witch Tiffany Aching, he decides he wants her to stay in his gleaming, frozen world. Forever.

But forever is a long time, so right now Tiffany is just trying to make it through the Winter and hopefully find a way to escape.

It will take all of Tiffany’s skill and cunning, as well as some help from the legendary Granny Weatherwax and the irrepressible Wee Free Men – to survive until Spring. And survive she must, because according to the other witches, if Tiffany doesn't make it to Spring . . . Spring won't come at all.
