(From the publisher):
FROM CHAOS TO CATASTROPHE WITH THE WITCHES OF KARRES
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 and save the galaxy once again (as told in The Wizard of Karres).
Time for a vacation? Don’t be ridiculous— there’s a new urgent mission that has Captain Pausert’s name on it! The long-suffering Captain and the two young Karres witches — Goth, who vows she will marry him when she grows up, and her younger sister the Leewit—are sent off to investigate mysterious and ominous events in the notorious Chaladoor region of space. Goth soon becomes aware that unknown but surely iinimical forces are tracking them, and in order to foil them she takes a desperate route to travel back in time and meet Pausert as a young boy. Meanwhile, the
Captain and the Leewit find themselves in the middle of their own desperate situation in the Chaladoor.
Whoever it was who said that a change was as good as a vacation never met any of the Witches of Karres—nor experienced their amazing talent for getting Captain Pausert into trouble.
