“The kingdom reassemble[d] itself, like a smashed mirror that is put together again and reflects the same old light in new and unexpected ways.”
Book 7 in the #Discworld series is a standalone, and we meet Teppic as he completes his training with the Assassin’s Guild in Ankh-Morpork. Destiny has other plans for him, though, and shortly after passing his brutal final exams he inherits the throne of his desert kingdom Djelibeybi earlier than expected. Playing with notions of mythology, traditional, inheritance and mathematics, it’s incredibly funny, and one of the first books in the series I remember reading back when I was an undergrad. It’s been a joy to revisit it!

About the Author

NSWPRC Officer, Teacher Librarian, English teacher and social media advocate. I've been teaching in Western Sydney for my entire teaching career, and love my job more than I love Neil Gaiman. (That's a lot, in case you're wondering!) I stalk authors (but always politely), fangirl over books, and drink coffee. And one of my guilty prides about my children is that they all have favourite authors. All opinions are my own.
