Being trained by the Assassin's Guild in Ankh-Morpork did not fit Teppic for the task assigned to him by fate. He inherited the throne of the desert kingdom of Djelibeybi rather earlier than expected (his father wasn't too happy about it either), but that was only the beginning of his problems
Quirky and bizzare (even slightly more so than the usual Pratchett fare), this story will be of interest to both fantasy fans and those who are curious about ancient religions. It had a rather weak start, in my opinion, but by half way through the book I was hooked. Whilst it is easily possible to see what influenced the plot, the way these elements were brought together is truly amazing and often unexpected. Not the best Discworld novel, but still brilliant!This book is part of my permenant collection and was purchased by myself.
