(As spoiler-free as I can) This book so far is everything I ever ask of Terry Pratchett. Main character Tiffany Aching is smart and vivacious and beats a monster up with a frying pan. Have I ever said I have lots of love for unusual weaponry? The narration is quick and amusing and Miss Tick is pretty interesting so far. My only complaint is the insistent mention of the Chalk and how it sucks to raise witches. Yes, I get it already, can we move on?
