      Pyramids by Terry Pratchett is one the earlier Discworld novels. It is set the Kingdom of Djelibeybi, and ancient land dominated by its pyramids.

      It tells the story of Teppic, the young Pharaoh, who has just completed his schooling in Ankh-Morpork as an Assasin, and has returned to


      rule in place of his recently deceased father.

      Djelibeybi is a land where time stands still, where they do things because that is theway they have done things for thousands of years.

      However Teppic, owing to his years in the teeming metropolis, has new plans for his nation,


      • if he can advance them past the ultra-conservative high priest, Dios.

        Pyramids is not one of Pratchett’s best work.

        It has its moments, but none of the characters are particularly memorable, which is probably why none have made an appearance in any later novel.

        In that sense this book

        is unusual, in that is a complete stand alone where having read other previous Pratchett novels is not required.

        Most of his books are sequels, although determining which book needs to be read before another can be challenging, as there are several lines all grouped together under the Discworld label.
