Genre: Science Fiction

Again, I continued reading this series because I adore James Schmidt’s The Witches of Karres and wanted to spend more time in that universe. This is really just fan-fic written by professional authors.

I was pleased that Mercedes Lackey wasn’t involved in writing this novel – the relationships that bothered me in The Wizard of Karres bothered me far less, and Goth and the Captain’s developing relationship (a tricky thing to handle at best – but really the most important piec

There are so many things wrong with this book, that I could not really in all honesty give it a two star rating, but it not utterly dreadful or eye-bleeding bad, so is probably a bit ahead of lot of other horrible one star books.

Ignoring the seriously crappy artwork on the cover of this Baen publication (and why does this publishing house not hire some decent artists for a change - not ALL of their books are utter dross, contrary to the image they seem to be going for), the first thing wrong wit

Product Description

As Captain Pausert had often had occasion to observe, life just wasn’t fair! Hadn’t he (with the help of the notorious witches of Karres, of course) outmaneuvered the deadliest of space pirates and eliminated the threat of the Worm World (as told in The Witches of Karres), after which, at the least, he deserved some time off. No such luck, though, as the Empress herself sent him on a secret mission to stop the nanite plague, but an enemy had somehow convinced the Imperial Fl

Ach, het is toch prettig om te weten hoe het verder gaat met de heksen van Karres. Dit derde deel haalt nergens het niveau van het eerste deel en er blijven te veel 'losse draadjes' over. Het doet vermoeden dat er plannen zijn (of zijn geweest) om ooit nog een vierde deel te schrijven, maar ik denk dat het mooi geweest is.

Have thoroughly enjoyed this series. The different authors have managed to keep the feel of the original book.

Just a rollicking good time where all is chaos, but the good guys have a ton of tricks up their collective sleeves.

The best of the three books, still recomend reading them all in order so you can understand the references. I like Dave Freer as an author and you can tell his touches in this continuing story.

An easy read, fun continuation of the Schmitz's original classic SciFi story (The Witches of Karres). Like the original, the style is humourous and the story moves at pace.

My least favorite of the three Karres books. I felt the story disjointed and confusing and really not that interesting.
