Mightily Oats has not picked a good time to be a Priest. He thought he'd come to Lancre for a simple ceremony. Now he's caught up in a war between vampires and witches. And The Vampires are intelligent. They've got style and fancy waistcoats and they're out of the casket and want a bite of the future. Mightily Oats knows he has a prayer, but he wishes he had an axe.
Pratchett's second Discworld book in a year; the witches of Lancre come up against a family who dress in black and have the power to cloud minds. These vampires have moved with the times, though, and lack most of the standard vulnerabilities; you might call it cheating. (Kirkus UK)
