Sorrow is the third novel in the Witch Ember series. I have not read the prior two novels. Though from what I read, you do not have to read the first two books. I have to admit that it took me a while to get into this story. OK, so I don’t know if this will make sense but I has two issues with this book and it is kind of funny as they are complete opposites. The first is that there was so much going on at the beginning that I had a hard time trying to figure out who was who and what their part was in the story. The other issue was that once I got everything straight in my head, the story line moved slowly. Once I really started getting into this book, I found that I did like it. The characters were some what interesting. Mr. Lawson does spin a good story in Sorrow.
