Guards! Guards!

by Terry Pratchett
Guards! Guards! (Discworld #8) - Terry Pratchett 8.08   178

This is where the dragons went.

They lie... not dead, not asleep, but... dormant. And although the space they occupy isn't like normal space, nevertheless they are packed in tightly. They could put you in mind of a can of sardines, if you thought sardines were huge and scaly. And presumably, somewhere, there's a key...

Guards! Guards! is the eighth Discworld novel – and after this, dragons will never be the same again!

Discworld :: Series

Series contains 34 primary works and has 35 total works.

The Discworld series is a continuous history of a world not totally unlike our own, except that it is a flat disc carried on the backs of four elephants astride a giant turtle floating through space, and that it is peopled by, among others, wizards, dwarves, soldiers, thieves, beggars, vampires and witches. Within the history of Discworld, there are many individual stories which can be enjoyed in any order. But reading them in the sequence in which they were written can increase your enjoyment through the accumulation of all the fine detail that contributes to the teeming imaginative complexity of this brilliantly conceived world.

Guards! Guards! is the eighth Discworld book and it's definitely one of the best Discworld books. I enjoyed reading this humorous book. It was very entertaining and fascinating. Terry Pratchett is a master of humorous fantasy. If you like humorous fantasy, you should read this book as soon as possible.
