The last book in the Tiffany Aching series is darker than previous books. Tiffany is a witch and that means a lot of unpaid work. Tiffany is tired from constantly helping people and taking away their pain including an abused daughter and the old baron. Despite all of her hard work, people aren’t comfortable around her. Falsehoods and rumors circulate about her. When the baron dies, Tiffany is accused of stealing money. Tiffany must find out whom or what is causing the mischief. Tiffany will face her greatest adversary yet, a cunning spirit from centuries past.

Terry Pratchett’s quirky writing style with footnotes and off-the-wall characters will definitely appeal to his fans. Purchase if the series is popular at your library.
