Having read the Witches of Karres I can say this book ALMOST gets it. There's something missing. The book felt slightly winded, dry in places, stale in others. There wasn't the life and whit that can be found in the first of this series. It was almost like the author was rushed. There was also a definite fear of the budding relationship between Pausert and Goth. The storyline appeared overly sanitized for your protection; like there was a Pedophillia Fairy floating around with a large wand ready to attack anything that even smacked of 'inappropriate'. If you are going to do it, do it. Don't go half way. Don't 'vaguely go where almost everyone has sort of headed in that direction before'. 'Do or do not' as Yoda would say. This also relates to the growing power that the Witches of Karres and Captain Pausert are gaining. They are going to be a force to be reckoned with. So . . . what's next? You've got a 500 lb gorilla in the what? The book was worth the money spent but I sort of wish I had it in paperback, not hardcover.

When James Schmitz Ended "The Witches of Karres", the ending practically invited sequels. The two so far have done a good job of continuing the basic approach of the original. One of the most significant things in the stories of Schmitz is the ability of young women to manage what they need to manage, definitely a feature here. I have followed and will continue to follow the adventures of Pausert, Goth, the Leewit, and others with interest. Through the two sequels the characters have developed as one would hope for, especially with children. The one thing preventing the fifth star is the characteristic of all sequels: if you have not read the earlier books, you will be rather at sea. The best solution is to start from the beginning, with "The Witches of Karres. That one should have six stars at least.
