I love the Tiffany Aching books. Tiffany is a beautiful main character, and Granny Weatherwax is always in them <3 and the Nac MacFeegles too! I loved the quasi-romance between Tiffany and the Wintersmith, how she kept rationally fightin it and yet couldn't completely deny her feelings. I also loved how sympathetic Tiffany always is (like with the hiver in A hat full of sky), how she can always manage to create a place of understanding within her, but still manage to do what's right in the bigger picture....Continua
Tiffany Aching is growing up, and so is the intended target for this novel. After a couple of "Discworld for younger readers" novels, Tiffany's adventures start intertwining with those of other major characters (the witches, of course). Already in the earlier books Pratchett made sure that she will not be necessarily involved in future witches adventures by binding her to her plains, but she would fit in the "full" Discworld novels no problem.
A very nice, very good, very entertaining read once again.
Even though there are no dragons.
Definitely my favorite (thus far!) of the Tiffany Aching arc in the Discworld oeuvre. This is Pratchett at his best - elegant, witty, and profound.
