Oh I had plenty of fun with this one! In a nutshell, the Vimes family past is revealed, Golems, murder, the College of Heralds of Ankh-Morpork, someone tries to kill Lord Vetinari, and Nobby finds out that he just might be an Earl. Not to mention the ongoing romance between Angua and Carrot, as well as the latest recruit to the City Watch, a dwarf by the name of Cheeri Littlebottom. Plenty of thoughtful moments leaven out the mayhem, and some of Pratchett's best is tucked away here and there. Overall, four stars from me and a recommendation.
