King Verence, in a fit of enlightened democracy and ebullient goodwill, invites Uberwald's undead, the Magpyrs, into Lancre to celebrate the birth of his daughter. But everyone knows you don't invite vampires into your house--unless you want permanent guests. Once ensconced within the castle, these wine-drinking, garlic-eating, sun-loving modern vampires have no intention of leaving . . . ever. As the Lancre living are about to discover, there's only one way to fight. Go for the throat, or as the vampyres themselves say . . . Carpe Jugulum!

I like Terry Pratchett’s writing. His play on words and puns is hilarious.
“Let’s at least get down to Bad Ass”
‘Bad Ass’?
‘There was a donkey, and it stopped in the middle of the river, and it wouldn’t go backwards or forwards.’ ‘Yes I know that ‘Disobedient Donkey’ might have been more acceptable, but....’
