Reviews

This isn't just a great Discworld book, it's extraordinary ... A magnificent sign-off. -- Kat Brown Daily Telegraph From the shadow of dementia, a brilliant novel shines: Terry Pratchett's last book is a funny, fearless farewell ... This is a book worth reading twice in quick succession. -- Christopher Stevens Daily Mail A joyful sign-off from a master of fantasy fiction ... High-octane literary enjoyment. -- Nicholas Tucker Independent Terry Pratchett was never so witty, direct and generous as in this, his final Discworld novel. -- Amanda Craig Guardian The Shepherd's Crown is a sometimes sad, often funny and eminently suitable testament to the life and career of Terry Pratchett. -- David Barnett Independent
