WEFOUNDWintersmith (Discworld)


But the Wintersmith isn't "exactly" a boy. He is Winter itself-snow, gales, icicles-all of it. When he has a crush on Tiffany, he may make her roses out of ice, but his nature is blizzards and avalanches. And he wants Tiffany to stay in his gleaming, frozen world. Forever.

Tiffany will need all her cunning to make it to Spring. She'll also need her friends, from junior witches to the legendary Granny Weatherwax.

"Crivens!" Tiffany will need the Wee Free Men too! She'll have the help of the bravest, toughest, smelliest pictsies ever to be banished from Fairyland-whether she wants it or not.

Apart from being the title of one of the books in the Tiffany Aching series, the Wintersmith is exactly what his name suggests - the Smith, or creator, of Winter. He is the gales, blizzards, avalanches and frosts of the Disc. He howls in the eaves and drops snowfalls like hammers. But once, he fell in love.

Each year, when the Summer Lady fades and is replaced by the Wintersmith, the Dark Morris is danced, and in the spaces where the dancers are not, there dance the two immortals, just as they do when the Morris is danced at the beginning of summer. But one year the 111-year-old witch Miss Eumenides Treason took Tiffany up there and the dance filled her bones and she joined in. In doing so she inadvertently took the place of the Summer Lady, and then, being human, didn't fade away but stayed around. This so intrigued the Wintersmith that he took it upon himself to make her his queen.

As Tiffany-shaped snowflakes fell all around, and Tiffany-shaped icebergs loomed out of the mists on icy seas, winter began to last longer than normal, and grow ever harsher.

She'll have the help of the bravest, toughest, smelliest pixies ever to be banished from Fairyland - whether she wants it or not. It's going to be a cold, cold season, because if Tiffany doesn't survive until spring...spring won't come.

"Yet another rollicking, clever, and quite charming adventure." ( Booklist )
