Humorous Fantasy. Rival fairy godmothers Desiderata Hollows and Lady Lilith de Tempscire have radically different destinies in mind for their godchild Emberella, a servant girl of Genua who will one day marry a prince (or not, if Desiderata has her way). Although Desiderata's sudden death suggests that Lilith's love of happily-ever-after (no matter what) will prevail, an emergency intervention on the part of witches Magrat Garlick, Granny Weatherwax, and Nanny Ogg ensures that nothing goes to plan -- anyone's plan. Although it's the 12th book in the late Terry Pratchett's phenomenally popular Discworld series, Witches Abroad stands on its own. Fantasy newsletter November 2015
