Anti-witch feelings are on the rise and rumors of old women being burned are in the air, unfortunately for Tiffany Aching she’s finding the Chalk getting infected and it could be her fault. I Shall Wear Midnight is the 38th book of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series and the fourth to feature the young witch Tiffany Aching, who is finding out that being a witch-in-training and being on her own are two different things entirely especially when the Cunning Man is after her.

Now 16 years old, Tiffany is now the witch of the Chalk doing everything that needs to be done from tending the Baron to looking after newest of babes. Then things seem to start to go wrong from a father assaulting his daughter to the old Baron dying in front of Tiffany and the nurse accusing her of killing him. Events transpire that Tiffany attempts to persevere through but she senses something is up, especially on her way to Ankh-Morpork when she meets a “man” that the Feegles fall through. Thanks to the Feegles, Tiffany spends a night in jail but learns witches all around are feeling pressure. Upon her return to the Chalk, Roland attempts to take out the Feegle’s mound and later has Tiffany detained but the young witch realizes that Roland’s fiancé is hiding a secret—she’s using magic—and confronts her getting the spell broken. As things return to normal in the Chalk, Tiffany must gear up to face the Cunning Man, a ghost of a witch hunter who’s hatred is infectious, even while attending a funeral and preparing for the new Baron’s wedding as senior witches gather and watch.

Building upon the previous three books to feature Tiffany, Pratchett continued the character’s growth by showing her face the everyday humdrum of the profession as the witch not a trainee, especially when something vicious shows up. Unlike previous books, the Feegles are more important minor characters than major secondary ones which focuses the book on Tiffany alone with her dealing with everything and everyone. Tiffany’s interactions with Carrot and Angua in Ankh-Morpork and the reappearance of Eskarina Smith, whose time traveling ability comes in handy in “assisting” Tiffany, just added to the quality of the book and connected various subseries together than just the same world.

I Shall Wear Midnight is a delightful return to the Disc and a somewhat return to form for Pratchett with a solid story that does not meander like some of the previous books of the series. Although a first time reader might want to get one of the earlier Aching books to understand some of what’s going on, any long-time fan will love this book.

A memorable entry in the Tiffany Aching canon, this deals with the phenomena of crowd psychology, rumor, prejudice and ill-will from the perspective of our favorite witch.

Once more she is facing a seemingly unbeatable enemy, who she must of course beat. This one is personified as The Man With No Eyes. I'll say no more for fear of spoiling.

Roland is getting married, but not to Tiffany, and this makes her life difficult on many levels. I'll say no more for fear of spoiling.

The Nac Mac Feegle are back in all their glory, with a special guest appearance by Horace. I'll say no more for fear of spoiling.

The world is pretty much the way it was when we left Tiffany after her run-in with The Wintersmith, except she is a couple of years older.

I'm pulling a star because the book feels a little formulaic after the tale of The Wintersmith. I have a half-feeling that this is unfair of me. Certainly the story dragged me along at every possible minute I could find to be nose-in to the book. It just felt a tad anti-climactic and I felt I already knew how Tiffany would win out - I was almost right.

I can't say why I won't put the star back and say it has only a half showing, but this felt like a (very enjoyable) four star experience. Maybe it was because the Feegles seem to have lost some of their reluctance to be seen and so many people now know of them. I know that felt "wrong" to me. Presumptuous nonsense of course; only the author has the right to say how things stand.

Your mileage will certainly vary, especially if you fly an indirect route on your broomstick.
JUST DO IT
An absolutely beautiful book. It actually brought me to tears on three separate occasions (I will admit to being a bit of a sap)

I have been reading Terry Pratchett's books for 16 years since I first discovered 'Sourcery' in my high school library and then went back and caught up with the others and I truly believe this is his best. At least, it resonated the most with me.

Considering at the point he wrote it his Alzheimer's had reached the point where he could no longer type but needs to dictate his words, this is an incredible achievement. The man is still sharp as a whip and an incredible storywriter to boot.

I haven't loved one of his books this much since I read 'Maskerade' and I loved that book an awful lot.. as I did 'Witches Abroad' so maybe I'm just partial to the witch related stories? Nevertheless if you are a fan, you owe it to yourself to read this. After reading the previous three Tiffany Aching books of course as they all tie in together.

Once again, I love this book and it has made my top ten of favourite books ever.

As far as the Kindle edition goes, it was just fine. Formatting was great, easy to read, all the illustrations translated quite nicely and only one spelling mistake.

Tiffany Aching is a delightful, complex character coming of age in an unusual world. Through her adventures I have learned Applied Headology, Human Relations skills for the Strong Woman, and Listening. As with all of Sir Terry's Discworld tales, the story within the story nurtures the reader's heart as well as the imagination. High recommendations for readers middle school and older. This book is the last of a series, can be read out of sequence but would make for a richer appreciation of the tale to start at WEE FREE MEN.

This is a wonderful book. It is witty and has dry humor. It has insights into how story works (but you’ll still like it even if you’re not a lit person) and most amazing of all, Pratchett is able to uncover startlingly on-point insights and truths about how we work, how we as human beings work, how the world works, and he does it beautifully, with a light touch, when you least expect it, without an ounce of pedantry.

All of his books do this, but the Tiffany Aching books do this particularly well, with special beauty.
