Lords and Ladies
It’s a hot midsummer night. The crop circles are turning up everywhere, and Magrat the witch is going to be married in the morning – everything ought to be going like a dream. Unfortunately, things aren’t about to run smoothly.
‘His spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction’ Mail on Sunday
The Discworld is very much like our own – if our own were to consist of a flat planet balanced on the back of four elephants which stand on the back of a giant turtle, that is . . .
The fairies are back – but this time they don’t just want your teeth ?
It’s Midsummer Night – no time for dreaming. Because sometimes, when there’s more than one reality at play, too much dreaming can make the walls between them come tumbling down.
Unfortunately there’s usually a damned good reason for there being walls between them in the first place – to keep things out. Things who want to make mischief and play havoc with the natural order.
Granny Weatherwax and her tiny coven of witches are up against real elves. And they’re spectacularly nasty creatures. Even in a world of dwarves, wizards, trolls, Morris dancers – and the odd orang-utan – this is going to cause trouble . . .
The Discworld novels can be read in any order but Lords and Ladies is the fourth book in the Witches series.
