Featured Book

Becky’s Pick: Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett

guardsTerry Pratchett, in my humble opinion, is a master of comic fantasy. Guards! Guards! tells the tale of the Night Watch. The Night Watch is a group of men who used to serve and protect the citizens of the great city of Ankh-Morpork, that have now become little more than jokes to a people who feel they no longer need law enforcement. All that changes when a dragon, a creature thought to have been extinct for centuries, rampages through the city. This is the first book in the Night Watch series of the Discworld books, and introduces us to Captain Samuel Vimes, a fan favorite. This is a MUST for any fantasy fan.
