A Wall Street Journal
bestseller in hardcover, this is #3 in the exhilarating series homage to James H. Schmitz’s legendary genre classic, Witches of Karres,
by multiple New York Times
best-seller and alternate history master, Eric Flint and Dave Freer. A planet-jumping space adventure combined with a rollicking time-travel romp featuring a straightlaced-but-lovable spaceship captain and two super-mental-powered teen girls.
#3 in the “Witches of Karres” homage series, this is a rollicking romp through the outer reaches of the galaxy.
If he’d known he was getting stuck with a pair of psi-wielding super-beings, even straightlaced do-gooder Captain Pausert might have thought twice about rescuing his two young “witch” charges from slavery on a dark planet. But what’s done is done – and with galactic peace once again threatened in the mysterious and pirate-ridden Chaladoor region, only a dangerous mission backward in time can save the present and – maybe – get stalwart-but-obtuse Pausert to see one of these young “witches” as more than just a friend.
