"Ever wonder what those magic circles of stones in the English countryside are for? They're to keep the elves out. Elves are nasty (besides being brutish and short). They're vicious. They love cruelty. Plus, to make things worse, elves have got It. Glamour. Style. Humans find elves absolutely irresistible. They actually think elves are cute! So when an infestation of Faerie Trash invades the Kingdom of Lancre, upsetting the Royal Wedding Plans (not to mention the Annual Morris Dance), the ordinary people of Lancre are helpless. It's up to the witches, led by Granny Weatherwax, to deal with the vicious little bastards. Which is all right with Granny. She thinks elves are cute, too. And that makes them even more fun to kill."--Publisher description.

I love stories about fae that throw glamour in your face and invite you to dance in the fairy rings--even though you'll never leave again. There's just so much in this book to adore. The sharp wit of the prose. The fun characters. The forest with all its twisted roots and steep mountains. The chase through Lancre castle is terrifying, the Morris Men dance is hilarious, and the comedy is, as always, top notch.
