Wintersmith by Terry Pratchett

"It was wizard magic, showy and dangerous. Witches would prefer to cut enemies dead with a  look. There was no sense in killing your enemy. How would you know you'd won?"

Christmas time seemed like the perfect time to indulge in a little Pratchett magic. Thanks to the almost never ending lending library that exists between my adorable friend Nicki and I, this treat was easy to enjoy. This particular novel sees the return of Tiffany Aching, continuing her training as a witch, and inadvertently becoming the object of affection of the Wintersmith ( ahem... of the title for the observant). He's kind of a God and the personification of winter. Being fancied by a deity is never an easy set of circumstances and much mayhem ensues.

Some familiar faces make an appearance, including the Nac Mac Feegles and Granny Weatherwax. Front and centre are the usual chuckles that are always part of the Discworld tapestry, along with a cracking tale. What is not to love here?

5 out of 5 magic adventures are always enchanting.
