Pyramids Cover Illustration by Josh Kirby

Pyramids is the seventh novel in the Discworld series. It was first published in 1989 by Victor Gollancz. The cover illustration is by Josh Kirby.


Being trained by the Assassins' Guild in Ankh-Morpork did not fit Teppic for the task assigned to him by fate. He inherited the throne of the desert kingdom of Djelibeybi rather earlier than he expected (his father wasn't too happy about it either), but that was only the beginning of his problems...


Pteppic is a student at the Assassins' Guild in Ankh-Morpork. When we first meet him he is undertaking the final examination, known as The Run before graduating as a qualified Assassin.

Shortly after successfully completing The Run he learns of his father's death. Since his father is the King of Djelibeybi this means that he is needed to return home as soon as possible to take his place as the new king.
