Inmunes a los ajos, las estacas y los símbolos religiosos, han salido del ataúd y quieren un bocado del futuro.

Y el futuro empieza por Lancre. Pero el pequeño reino montañoso cuenta con buenas defensas: las brujas Yaya Ceravieja, Tata Ogg, Agnes y, aunque tenga que cambiar pañales entre hechizo y poción, los angeles reina Magrat. Eso sin contar el ejército de hombrecillos azules que lleva un tiempo dando vueltas por l. a. región.
