The God of Winter has fallen in love with 13-year-old apprentice witch Tiffany Aching. She enlists the support of the Wee Free Men—her toughest, craziest, and smallest friends—to bend the rules of the rites of spring and protect her world from being eternally frozen. In this energetic mix of boisterous fantasy, wonderful humor, and uncommon common sense, longtime Discworld series narrator Stephen Briggs gives a virtuoso performance, delivering every line and every character voice with just the right glee, tension, and clarity. Briggs saves his best efforts for the wee Scottish-accented “Pictsies,” who are laugh-out-loud funny and endearing all at once. Tiffany Aching insists that witches don’t believe in magic, but certainly Briggs and Pratchett must. Terry Pratchett’s third Tiffany Aching novel is highly recommended. B.P.
