Set in the same universe as Weber's Honor Harington series, Treecat Wars is the third novel in the prequel Star Kingdom series, one which is being co-written by Jane Lindskold. This series is aimed straight at the YA market, and focuses on a teenage Stephanie Harrington and the events following her discovery of the treecats on the planet of Sphinx. The first novel in this series, A Beautiful Friendship, was a massive hit for me, setting everything up nicely and delivering a thoroughly enjoyable read. Fire Season didn't manage to meet the lofty expectations I had, and ultimately fell flat on many fronts. It was with great trepidation that I picked up Treecat Wars, and I was pleasantly surprised with what I found with its pages.

One of the biggest problems I had with Fire Season was that it just wasn't sure what it wanted to be. Was it aimed at the older YA crowd, as the more adult themes and discussions suggested? Or was it aimed at a younger audience, with details of relationships and unsure pacing on the treecat front present? Fortunately Weber and Lindskold seem to have combined their writing much better this time, with Treecat Wars having a much more stable and even narrative. Yes, the anthropologists are still around, and discussion about sentience and treecat behaviour is still present, but it's easier to read, not as full on. The same goes for the relationships between our characters - it's not as young as it was previously. Don't get me wrong, both aspects are far from perfect, but they are at least consistent this time around. And let me tell you, that makes the world of difference.

Treecat Wars picks up in the aftermath of Fire Season, and while the human population of Sphinx is carrying on as normal, it's not the same for the treecats.

An excellent little story mostly suitable for teenagers but good enough for anyone who enjoys background information on the treecats of the Honour Harrington world.

For young adults but as a lover of David Weber's Honor Harrington series this is an enjoyable read; I'm also a cat lover so it fits there too.

"Treecat Wars" is the third book in the "Star Kingdom" series set in the Universe of David Weber's "Honor Harrington" series but some four hundred years earlier. These stories are particularly aimed at young adults but can be read by older readers. They are not nearly as vast or sophisticated as the "Honorverse" books but are entertaining and well written.

This book is set shortly after "Fire Season (Star Kingdom)" in which Stephanie Harrington, who is a direct ancestor of Honor Harrington and had been the first human to be adopted by a Sphinx treecat, had to deal with teenage rivalries, forest fires, and a bunch of xenobiologists.

Stephanie was originally introduced in "A Beautiful Friendship (Star Kingdom (Quality))" which describes how Stephanie Harrington, a twelve-year-old girl from the first generation of Honor Harrington's family to move to the Manticore system, was adopted by the treecat who she named "Lionheart." This was originally written as a short story which was first published in the collection "More Than Honor," can also be found in the more recent anthology "Worlds Of Weber" and was then extended to a novel.

For anyone who has never read any of the Honor Harrington books, "Treecats" are a small arborial sentient species native to the planet Sphinx who look a bit like six-legged cats with long tails. Among themselves they are fully telepathic: they can read the "Mind-glows" of humans well enough to be empathic, e.g.
