The fourth Discworld novel and first in the Death series - revamped with a fresh bold look targeting a new generation of fantasy fans.
´Death comes to us all. When he came to Mort, he offered him a job.´
Death is the Grim Reaper of the Discworld, a black-robed skeleton carrying a scythe who must collect a minimum number of souls in order to keep the momentum of dying, well . . . alive.
He is also fond of cats and endlessly baffled by humanity. Soon Death is yearning to experience what humanity really has to offer, but to do that, he´ll need to hire some help.
It´s an offer Mort can´t refuse. As Death´s apprentice he´ll have free board, use of the company horse - and being dead isn´t compulsory. It´s a dream job - until Mort falls in love with Death´s daughter, Ysabell, and discovers that your boss can be a killer on your love life . . .
´Cracking dialogue, compelling illogic and unchained whimsy´ Sunday Times
