The thirty-seventh Discworld novel and sixth in the Wizards series - revamped with a fresh bold look targeting a new generation of fantasy fans.
Football has come to the ancient city of Ankh-Morpork. And now, the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match without using magic . . . so they´re in the mood for trying everything else.
This is not going to be a gentleman´s game.
The prospect of the Big Match draws in a street urchin with a wonderful talent for kicking a tin can, a maker of jolly good pies, a young woman who might just turn out to be the greatest fashion model there has ever been, and the mysterious Mr Nutt, who has something powerful, and dark, locked away inside him.
As the match approaches, secrets are forced into the light and four lives will be entangled and changed for ever. Here we go, here we go, here we go!
´This isn´t just football, it´s Discworld football. Or, to borrow another phrase, it´s about life, the Universe and everything´ The Times
Unseen Academicals is the sixth book in the Wizards series, but you can read the Discworld novels in any order.
