by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Brigg
In the kingdom of Lancre a young witch called Magrat became Queen. Her baby daughter is now to have her naming ceremony. Many friends have been invited, among them Nanny Ogg, Agnes Perdita Nitt and Granny Weatherwax. But there are also some dangerous guests from Überwald: the de Magpyrs. ...!
An Omnian priest, performing the ceremony of naming the royal baby.
Very soon everyone is vampire-controlled and happy to agree to whatever they say...
The de Magpyrs are a family of modern vampires - immune to garlic, crosses and daylight - and already busy taking over the whole kingdom of Lancre in a "bloodless coup"...! So, unfortunately most people are now controlled by the vampires. The few that can resist their influence have to brave the monsters on their own. Watch quick-witted witches as they struggle and fight to fool the bloodsuckers!
