Summary

A bright new dawn is just around the corner for thousands of tiny nomes when they move into the ruined buildings of an abandoned quarry. Or is it?

Soon strange things begin to happen. Like the tops of puddles growing hard and cold, and the water coming down from the sky in frozen bits. Then humans appear, and they really mess everything up. The quarry is to be re-opened, and the nomes must fight to defend their new home. But how long will they be able to keep the humans at bay, even with the help of the monster Jekub?

This is the second book in the Bromeliad Trilogy.

Laugh-out-loud exellent!

I love a Terry Pratchett story that makes me laugh. He has a way of turning a phrase that is delightful. Pratchett's gnomes observations of humans made me laugh at some of our idiosyncrasies as humans.

great even out of order

I accidentally listened to wings -book 3 first, but that didn't spoil things much. It's a great story, I wish there was a book 4!

Ok, but not brilliant

This series is nice, but it is not compelling. While I normally admire Stephen Briggs' performances in the other Discworld books, in this series, he does not vary his voice and so I keep hearing the voice of Granny Weatherwax from the lips of a different character.
