'What's so hard about pulling a sword out of a stone? The real work's already been done. You ought to make yourself useful and find the man who put the sword in the stone in the first place.'




'What's so hard about pulling a sword out of a stone? The real work's already been done. You ought to make yourself useful and find the man who put the sword in the stone in the first place.'





The City Watch needs MEN! But what it's got includes Corporal Carrot (technically a dwarf), Lance-constable Cuddy (really a dwarf), Lance-constable Detritus (a troll), Lance-constable Angua (a woman... most of the time) and Corporal Nobbs (disqualified from the human race for shoving).





And they need all the help they can get, because someone in Ankh-Morpork has been getting dangerous ideas - about crowns and legendary swords, and destiny. And the problem with destiny is, of course, that she is not always careful where she points her finger. One minute you might be minding your own business on a normal if not spectacular career path, the next you might be in the frame for the big job, like saving the world...

The Watch Strikes Back!
[Note: You'd really need to read *at least* "Guards! Guards!" before starting this book... if you manage to get your hands over "Moving Pictures" it'd be perfect ;-)]

Capt. Vimes is back with the old rank and some new recruits. The kingship of Anhk-Morpork is still an issue for someone, but this time no dragons will be harmed during the novel. Gaspode the Wonder Dog will save the day (again!). Trolls and Dwarfs will... well, it'd better if you read that by yourselves! ;-P

The second Watch book stars the core of the cast of characters that will take you through Discworld series and the ideas that will give birth to most of future novels: a must-have and a MUST READ! ...Continua
