Wintersmith (Tiffany Aching #3) by Terry Pratchett

Overall Impression: ****

Who/What decided me: Continuation of series

Short synopsis (Goodreads): Tiffany Aching is a trainee witch — now working for the seriously scary Miss Treason. But when Tiffany witnesses the Dark Dance — the crossover from summer to winter — she does what no one has ever done before and leaps into the dance. Into the oldest story there ever is. And draws the attention of the wintersmith himself.

As Tiffany-shaped snowflakes hammer down on the land, can Tiffany deal with the consequences of her actions? Even with the help of Granny Weatherwax and the Nac Mac Feegle — the fightin’, thievin’ pictsies who are prepared to lay down their lives for their “big wee hag.”

Wintersmith is the third title in an exuberant series crackling with energy and humour. It follows The Wee Free Men and Hat Full of Sky.

My Review: This series continues to astound me. I love how Terry Prachett combines deep insight with laugh-out loud humor (The Nac Mac Feegle are uproarious!). I truly enjoyed reading this book and getting to know Tiffany and her world a little better. She truly is a remarkable girl. It was nice though, in this book, to find out that she's not completely infallible. She does have feelings, but she knows what is right and does it, no matter how hard it is. 

I also really liked that Roland was in this book as well. I've wanted to get to know him better, and, judging by the synopsis, the  next book (I shall wear midnight) will have even more! So excited to read the final installment of Tiffany Aching (or is it? I've heard that Terry Pratchett has had some health problems, not sure if that's just rumor though; for his sake, I hope not).
