Never has DEATH rocked so hard. Terry Pratchett’s phenomenal laugh-out-loud Discworld series returns . . .

‘If you are unfamiliar with Pratchett’s unique blend of philosophical badinage, you are on the threshold of a mind-expanding opportunity’ Financial Times


Yes. There’s a Death in the family.

It’s hard to grow up normally when Grandfather rides a white horse and wields a scythe – especially when you have to take over the family business, and everyone mistakes you for the Tooth Fairy. And especially when you have to face the new and addictive music that has entered Discworld.

It’s lawless. It changes people.

It’s called Music With Rocks In.

It’s got a beat and you can dance to it, but…

It’s alive.

And it won’t fade away.

Readers love Soul Music:

‘A wonderfully written Discworld novel, full of all the humour, pathos and characters that make the Discworld series what it is to so many avid followers’ Goodreads reviewer,

‘The author had a wonderful way of weaving pop culture references with action and, most impressively, resoundingly deep and important messages about life (and death) itself’ Goodreads reviewer,

‘The magic that is unleashed has more to do with lampooning record company contracts than the typical fantasy, with room for plenty of puns, an hilarious tour, and some profound thoughts on what music means to people’ Goodreads reviewer,

‘Discworld novel for all Rock fans ??. With many many references to songs and bands from the 60s, 70s and 80s you’re gonna love it!’ Goodreads reviewer,

‘This book remains the best commentary on rock and roll, and the rock and roll phenomenon, that I have ever read’ Goodreads reviewer,

‘Particularly enjoyable for music lovers! I absolutely loved all the clever references and puns . . . The Death series are also my favourite; anytime he shows up to BOOM at the reader I just get sucked into the book more and more’ Goodreads reviewer,
