Another great title in the Discworld Series!! Mort is an uncompromising, gangling teenager who becomes an apprentice to Death, but proves less gifted at his new task of ushering souls out of the world. In fact, when it comes to the rather attractive Princess Keli (due to be assassinated). Mort fluffs it completely. He kills the assassin instead, thus interfering with the implacable workings of Fate. But reality isn't changed so easily; history as it should have been begins to take shape around Keli's city-state of Sto-Lat. Can Mort save Keli before she is squeezed out of existence? Death, having delegated much of his work to Mort, is displaying human characteristics: drinking, dice-playing and becoming curious about the nature of fun. Mort, meanwhile, is becoming less cheery and showing a worrying tendency to Speak in Hollow Capitals. . .

Death comes to everyone eventually on Discworld. And now he's come to Mort with an offer the young man can't refuse. (No, literally, can't refuse since being dead isn't exactly compulsory.) Actually, it's a pretty good deal. As Death's apprentice, Mort will have free board and lodging. He'll get use of the company horse. And he won't have to take any time off for family funerals. But despite the obvious perks, young Mort is about to discover that there is a serious downside to working for the Reaper Man . . . because this perfect job can be a killer on one's love life.About the Author:
