I love this book and so do my children. It is loaded with great ideas and begs for a sequel which AFAIK has never been written.
This is a delightful book for everyone from the age of 10 and up.
Get it before is vanishes again!
My brother and I read this book as children, and loved and reread it so much that it fell into tatters. I spent years looking for it and about ten years ago tracked down two out-of-print copies. It is now back in print and my brother sent me the hardcover version as a birthday present. Both my husband and 15-year-old son were soon enthralled by the magic of Karres. My husband never reads science fiction, and my son doesn't usually read "books about girls." But they couldn't put down "The Witches of Karres."
"It's so frustrating!" my husband said a day after he finished the book. "This book cries out for a sequel." [which Schmitz never wrote.]
How can movie producers be missing this one?
But what a tale it is. Strong female characters, seriously creepy menaces (Worm Weather, Sheem war robot), intertwisting plot lines, excellent characterization. A good writer at the top of his form, and we never want it to end! This is a book that can be read many times, and enjoyed each of those times. I reckon this is Schmitz's best work, together with 'the Demon breed'. Brilliant.
