Review of "The Shepherd's Crown" on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

A fitting final Discworld novel from Sir Terry, whom Death sadly led away from this world last year.

Esme Weatherwax is also dead. Who will fill her boots? Who will fill the boots of Terry Pratchett? At least the first of these questions is answered in The Shepherd's Crown. The second.... well, maybe we will find out in the future. Like Granny Weatherwax, Terry will be a difficult act to follow. But, maybe we don't need another Terry, but somebody who does things their own way. Not another Granny, but somebody more.. Tiffany.
