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.

Vampires from Uberwald try to take over Lancre but the witches aren’t having it. Their servant Igor is rebelling because the Family isn’t ‘tradithional’ like the old Master. Even the Wee Blue Men get in on the mayhem, helping the King find his courage.

I like Terry Pratchett’s writing. His play on words and puns is hilarious.
“Let’s at least get down to Bad Ass”
‘Bad Ass’?
‘There was a donkey, and it stopped in the middle of the river, and it wouldn’t go backwards or forwards.’ ‘Yes I know that ‘Disobedient Donkey’ might have been more acceptable, but....’
