Second on this year’s reading list was The Shepherd’s Crown by Terry Pratchett.
I’m even more behind on these posts than I was the last time I posted, so this is another book I have already read. It’s the last, not only of the Tiffany Aching books, but of the Discworld series, so I’m all melancholic about finishing it, even though I’m still rereading all my favorites (so it’s not like I’m done with the series at all).
But really, I’m just here to deliver your grumpy owl picture, so let’s get on with it.
The Shepherd’s Crown
by Terry Pratchett
Deep in the Chalk, something is stirring. The owls and the foxes can sense it, and Tiffany Aching feels it in her boots. An old enemy is gathering strength.
This is a time of endings and beginnings, old friends and new, a blurring of edges and a shifting of power. Now Tiffany stands between the light and the dark, the good and the bad.
As the fairy horde prepares for invasion, Tiffany must summon all the witches to stand with her. To protect the land. Her land.
There will be a reckoning . . .
