Thud! (Discworld, #34; City Watch #7) by Terry Pratchett

In a fit of his particular brand of omnidirectional anger, Vimes veers off into the mine where he cuts himself, he supposes, on a locked door. It was the dumb way the pawns went off and slaughtered their fellow pawns while the kings lounged about doing nothing that thud terry pratchett got to him; if only the pawns united, maybe talked the rooks round, the whole board could've thud terry pratchett a thud terry pratchett in a dozen moves.

Ankh-Morpork is not a good place to be right now, with tensions from the centuries-old ethnic conflicts in Discworld fashion, those are between the dwarfs and the trolls at the all-time high as the anniversary of Koom Valley is nearing.

Koom Valley was a place where centuries ago the dwarfs ambushed the trolls.


Or perhaps the trolls ambushed the dwarfs. What they do know is that they are supposed to hate each other - because it's always been so.

For them, the battle of Koom Valley never ended, and Thud terry pratchett Vimes would do anything to prevent it from replaying in the streets of Ankh-Morpork. The no-idea-who-ambushed-whom Battle of Koom Valley seemed like a throwaway joke in the earlier Discworld books.

But here Pratchett takes full advantage of it, turning the funny on its head, making it serious and even tragic at times. Because Koom Valley still lives on in the minds of people despite hundreds of miles and hundreds of years, and still claims its victims as the dead thud terry pratchett pile up and hatred is sparked by those thud terry pratchett think they see the light or rather, the darknessand riots are about to tear the city apart and turn it into another battle of Koom Valley, and Sam Vimes is not having it, and not even ancient supernatural entities can stop him.


That looks like one that would go to the judges. It can take any number of dwarfs with one move. If a dwarf is next to a troll and it has not been thud terry pratchett, it can capture the troll.
