I Shall Wear Midnight is the thirty-eighth Discworld novel, the fifth specifically written for younger readers (or so the publishers say), and the fourth starring Tiffany Aching. It features a rare cross-over in which Tiffany visits Ankh-Morpork and meets members of the City Watch, notably Sam Vimes, and introduces new characters to the city.


A man with no eyes. No eyes at all. Two tunnels in his head... It's not easy being a witch, and it's certainly not all whizzing about on broomsticks, but Tiffany Aching - teen witch - is doing her best. Until something evil wakes up, something that stirs up all the old stories about nasty old witches, so that just wearing a pointy hat suddenly seems a very bad idea. Worse still, this evil ghost from the past is hunting down one witch in particular. He's hunting for Tiffany. And he's found her...

A fabulous Discworld title filled with witches and magic and told in the inimitable Terry Pratchett style, I Shall Wear Midnight is the fourth Discworld title to feature Tiffany and her tiny, fightin', boozin’ pictsie friends, the Nac Mac Feegle (aka The Wee Free Men).
