Golden Hair

Guards! Guards!

Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett

The eighth book in the Discworld series.  The first in the Watch sub-series, and so a good starting point.  Young Carrot, an adoptive dwarf, is sent off to Ankh-Morkpork to join the Night Watch because they really don't want a six-foot-tall human marrying Minty.  Meanwhile, one of the lowest grade secret societies in the city is, under the instigation of their leader, trying to summon a dragon.

The tenth Discworld. Kinda stand-alone. The Unseen University and the Patrician feature in ways to that connect to earlier stories, but the main characters and their tale stand-alone. Those who read the series will see him forcibly adjusting the world-building because he didn't really like the set-up he had given it at first.
