    Summary

    Ever since Carlos was little, he and his daemon have been fans of Dr. Lyra Belacqua. Both as the most groundbreaking experimental theologian of the 20th century, and as the heroine of dozens of fantasy-adventure children's stories (based very loosely on her own mysterious childhood).

    But Lyra's true legacy is still bigger than Carlos ever imagined...until he took a team of scholars to study Rusakov particles in the most theologically interesting community in Hispania Nova. Now his own day-to-day life is full of things like angels, witches, hooded spectres, portals between worlds, vague yet menacing branches of the Magisterium, and a man who walks around without his daemon and can read an alethiometer as easily as a stop sign.

    Summary

    The new Watch trainees are an odd bunch. There's a Dwarf, of course, but that's practically routine in Ankh-Morpork these days. There's a couple of Men, one of whom has a shiny shiny sword. There's a bunch of Hobbits, new to the city, one of whom is a little quiet and subdued. There's even a Wizard (thanks to Vetinari's damned blasted equal-employment quotias). And lastly there's a suspiciously pointy bloke who swears he's not an Elf, even if he sings just a little too much...

    When one of Gimli's cousins seems to miraculously return from the dead only to report another missing person, a chain of events is set in motion that leads to this bunch of mismatched raw recruits stumbling into a new, unpleasant and dangerous sort of investigation...
