I loved this book! 4 Nov 2013
By Kurt A. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the twenty-fourth book in Terry Pratchett's series on the Discworld--a flat world, supported on the back of four massive elephants riding on the back of a planet-sized turtle, anything hilarious can happen here, and eventually does. When Samuel Vimes, commander of the Ankh-Morpork city watch is sent by Lord Vetinari to represent the city at the crowning of the new Dwarvish Low King, he knows something is afoot. Things begin to unravel when murders begin, a duplicate of a Dwarven artifact is stolen, Sergeant Angua disappears, Captain Carrot quits to search for her, and (worst of all) Sergeant Colon is placed in charge of the Watch. Can Sam Vimes unravel the mysteries surrounding him? And, who should he fear most, the werewolves or the vampires?

Ah, once again Terry Pratchett has reached into the ether, and brought forth another fascinating and hilarious work. As always, Terry is a master of running several storyline concurrently, and bringing the whole story together as a logical whole. I loved this book, and highly recommend it.
