Lords and Ladies Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Lords and Ladies

The kingdom of Lancre is one of the smaller, mountainous countries on Discworld. Crop circles have started popping up of late, which means travel between alternate universes will become easier, and the elves (mean, nasty, cruel beings who bewitch everyone into thinking they are beautiful) are about to make their move. At the same time, Magrat, a young woman who was in training to be a witch, has been chosen by Verence II to be his queen and is learning the ropes of royalty. Granny Weatherwax the Borrower is back, as are several stumbling wizards and the orangutan librarian from Unseen University. Morris dancers also figure into the plot, and there are the usual sly references to such things as "Midsummer Nights Dream," Disney's Snow White, the Magnificent Seven, and Dirty Harry. Reasonably amusing, but not one of Pratchett's best in the series.
