Sourcery Book Review:

Sourcery was first published in 1988 as the fifth novel in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series. Sourcerers are wizards that spawn magic, who are themselves sources of magic. While wizards are generally the eighth son of an eighth son, sourcerers are born as the eighth son of an eighth son of an eighth son. In other words, they are the eighth sons of wizards.

Since the Discworld was nearly destroyed in the great mage wars waged by sourcerers, it has since been decreed that wizards are not allowed to have children (in order to prevent sourcerers from being born and another great mage war to occur.)

Much of the book is about a sourcerer (getting born in spite of the rules) who comes up with a plan to make wizards the rulers of Discworld. And a small group of resistance fighters who dare to defy him, including Rincewind the Wizzard, Conina the Hairdresser, daughter of Cohen the Barbarian, and Nijel the Destroyer.
