The story of the further adventures of Captain Pausert with (primarily) Goth and The Leewit was well-told, but a bit "wordier" than the original; this author seemed to explain things a lot more than Schmitz had found necessary, and sometimes I thought that the story was slowed down by the explanations.
Still, I found it to be a fun read, and I'd recommend it to anyone who has enjoyed the Witches of Karres!
Whereas 'Wizard' for the most part kept to the external, no frills narrative style of 'Witches', 'Sorceress' has a somewhat different texture, with more exposition and a deeper view into characters' motivations. This caught me at first, since I've re-read the first two books many times and so expected more of the same. Once I got farther into the story, I came to appreciate the clearer view (fewer "OK, what did he mean by that?" moments) and the necessity of doing so with a plot that takes place simultaneiously in different timelines. Flint & Freer deserve a lot of credit for putting together another great installment in the series.
In all, I feel the three books worthy of five stars, despite what some critics have said. The continuity is reasonably fluid and the stories are all equally convoluted and interesting. I do, indeed, recommend these three books for some good, old fashioned Sci-Fi reading.
