Sourcery: (Discworld Novel 5) (Discworld Novels)
About this deal
Unseen University, the most magical establishment on the Discworld, has finally got its wish: the emergence of a wizard more powerful than they’ve ever seen. But be careful what you wish for . . . A dying wizard who flouted the rule against having children makes a bargain with Death that allows his spirit to inhabit his staff, which he passes on to his eighth son, who is born a sourcerer. Under the influence of the staff, this child prodigy travels to Ankh-Morpork and initiates a plan for wizards to rule the Discworld, with himself at their head. Because the sourcerer's power is threatening to destroy the Discworld altogether, a small band— Rincewind the Wizard, Nijel the Destroyer and Conina the Hairdresser, daughter of Cohen the Barbarian—attempt to thwart those plans. As the sourcerer takes over the University and sets his sights on the rest of the world, only one wizard manages to escape his influence. Unfortunately for everyone, it's Rincewind.

It smelled like the total eclipse of the moon. ”
