I just finished reading The Sorceress and her Lovers and I enjoyed it. This book was difficult for me to write. The original master outline for Senta and the Steel Dragon concluded with The Two Dragons, and originally, there was a long epilog that told what happened to all the characters for the rest of their lives. By the time I got The Two Dragons published, four years after writing it, I had decided to continue the series. So that epilog was pulled out and a new ending was written.
The Sorceress and her Lovers essentially sets up the next five books in the series. While there is a self-contained plot and quite a bit of action, you will see reading it, that there is even more to come.
What I really like about the book as a reader are the characters. There are many returning characters: Senta, Saba, Iolanthe, and Yuah, but they have very different situations than before. This is especially true of Senta, who was a kid in books 0-4 and now is grown up. There is also the character of Baxter, whose background appears in book 4, but now steps center stage.
