Mightily Oats has not picked a good time to be priest. He thought he was there for a simple little religious ceremony. Now he's caught up in a war between vampires and witches, and he's not sure there is a right side. There's the witches Agnes, Magrat, Nanny Ogg, and the formidable Granny Weatherwax And the vampires: the stakes are high but they re intelligent not easily got rid of with a garlic enema or going to the window and saying I don t know about you, but isn t it a bit stuffy in here? They ve got style and fancy waistcoats. They re out of the casket and want a bite of the future.
