Mightily Oats has not picked a good time to be a priest. He thought he'd come to the mountain kingdom of Lancre for a simple little religious ceremony. Now he's caught between vampires and witches, and he's not sure there is a right side.

Always a pleasure to listen to Terry Pratchett's work, always something new to discover and to be reminded of forgotten something's.
