By the way - as I was starting to reread The Shepherd's Crown on my Kindle, I noticed there was an extra bit at the end called The Witches of Discworld by Jacqueline Simpson. It's not in the hardback copy that I have. . .

Hi everyone! I’m so glad to be finally reading my way through the “The Shepherd’s Crown”. I must say so far it has been an emotional roller coaster, but I’m enjoying it a lot!

Wish me luck! ^.^

Excellent review, Mixa. It astounds me that Terry was still writing and was able to achieve the standard of this story in spite of his medical issues. It would be too easy to pick holes in parts of the story that didn't get that final polish, but I am oh so glad that we got this book. There is a certain amount of closure in this book. I do not know whether Terry knew or suspected this might be his last Discworld book, but it's a good one to close on. What happens next in Discworld is up to the imagination of the individual reader. The adventure of Discworld is one that I am eternally grateful to have been included in. Terry has left a legacy to the world and I will never forget him.
