Discworld - As Good as Any Man

Monstrous Regiment is another book that has our favorite characters in it only peripherally.  Even Death appears as only an apparition or hallucination.  But it is another fun read.  It even only has fantasy elements as things that have been established.  Sure there's a vampire and a troll in the regiment, but they're just treated as people.

The end is left a little open ended as to just what is going to happen, and leaves you wondering.
