Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
With over seven million copies of his books in print and seventeen titles on the New York Times bestseller list, David Weber is the science fiction publishing phenomenon of the new millennium. In the hugely popular Honor Harrington series, the spirit of C.S. Forester’s Horatio Hornblower and Patrick O’Brian’s Master and Commander lives on—into the galactic future. Books in the Honor Harrington and Honoverse series have appeared on fourteen best seller lists, including those of The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and USA Today. While Weber is best known for his spirited, modern-minded space operas, he is also the creator of the Oath of Swords fantasy series and the Dahak saga. Weber has also written highly popular collaborations, including his Starfire Series with Steve White, which produced the New York Times bestseller The Shiva Option among others. Weber’s collaboration with alternate history master Eric Flint led to the bestselling 1634: The Baltic War, and his planetary adventure novels with military science fiction ace and multiple national best-seller John Ringo includes the blockbusters March to the Stars and We Few. Finally, Weber’s teaming with Linda Evans produced the bestselling Multiverse series. David Weber makes his home in South Carolina with his wife and children.
Jane Lindskold is the award-winning, bestselling author of over twenty novels, including the incredibly popular Firekeeper series (Through Wolf’s Eyes though Wolf’s Blood), as well as over sixty shorter works of science fiction and fantasy. Several of her novels have been chosen by VOYA for their Best SF, Fantasy and Horror list. Lindskold's work has been repeatedly praised for its sensitive depiction of worlds and cultures different from our own -- especially those that aren't in the least human. Her works have been praised as "intricate, beautifully written" (Voya), "attention-grabber" (School Library Journal), "engrossing" (Miami Herald), "Thrilling" (Publisher's Weekly), "ripping good fantasy" (Kliatt). Reviewer Charles deLint called Lindskold "one of those hidden treasures of Amerian letters." She has been a frequent contributor to the Honorverse, where her tales of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Michael have a loyal and enthusiastic following.

Auf Sphinx sind die Waldbrände gelöscht, doch die Folgen zeigen sich jetzt. Viele Treecats Clans haben Verluste erlitten, einige haben ihr Land verloren und der Winter kommt. Einer der Handlungsfäden beschäftigt sich folgerichtig mit einem Clan, dessen ganze Lebensgrundlage durch die Feuer zerstört wurde und der einen Weg finden muss den kommenden Winter zu überleben. Dabei entwickelt sich ein Konflikt mit einem benachbarten Clan. Weber und seiner Co-Autorin ist es gelungen diese Probleme, die durchaus Parallelen zu Ereignissen auf unserer Welt haben, auf eine empathische und telepathische Fremdrasse in einer nachvollziehbaren Weise zu transportieren.
Stephanie Harrington durchlebt weiter ihre erste Liebe und darf auf Manticore als jüngster Ranger eine besondere Ausbildung besuchen, was sie tragischer Weise erst Mal wieder von ihrer Beziehung trennt.
Auf Sphinx kommen sich Stephanies Freundin Jessica und Anders bei verschieden Gelegenheiten näher, dies hat zwangsläufig Folgen für die Beziehung zwischen Anders und Stephanie.
Durch alle drei Bände zieht sich die Frage nach dem Status der Baumkatzen, sind sie als eigenständige intelligente Wesen oder als Tiere anzusehen. In dieser Rahmenhandlung zeigt sich Webers große Lust an der Schilderung von menschlichen Motiven und der Konstruktion von Intrigen. Wenn die Baumkatzen als „Personen“ angesehen werden müssen hat dies weitreichende Folgen für die weitere Nutzung von Sphinx.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

I realize that the target audience for this series is the Young Adult (YA) age group. I would suggest that this one is targeted more towards the 12 to 14 year old female. I understand that when two authors are listed on the cover of a Baen Book that one wrote the outline, the other the narrative. My guess would be that David Weber wrote the outline. The first one hundred pages or so of this book were so filled with teenage angst that I marked my place and picked up Cross the Stars (Hammer's Slammers) as a break.
Don't worry, I finished the book ( I don't review books that I don't finish)
If you're looking for a book to give to a young female teenager, I would highly recommend this one. Don't worry, there isn't any sex or even anything close to it in here.
I would suggest that you start with the first book in the series, A Beautiful Friendship (Star Kingdom), it is available in an audio book now.

These are part of a well crafted and coherent universe. The Honor Harrington series is masterfully built, and the characters within it, both good and evil, feel more relatable than the people you meet on the street. After all, you can understand why all the people in the stories behave as they do.
This prequel is an excellent way for preteen or teen readers to enter this universe.
There are no examples that come to mind of a five-star rating I have given, so four-stars is high praise from me. I would add that though I worked for years as a writer and editor, I have no affiliation with this writer or publisher.
I hope this has been helpful.
Staying at home are Jessica and Anders who are dealing with a new group of anthropologists who have to come to Sphinx to study the treecats. They seem to have a hidden agenda about wanting the treecats to be declared minimally sentient and in need to being put on reservations.
Meanwhile, the Swaying Fronds Clan is suffering because their range was decimated in the fires and many of their most able members died when trying to escape the fires. The remaining clan are the old, the sick, and the very young. They need to find a place to live to survive the coming winter but the neighboring clan is also suffering and can't take in another clan. Even worse, the one member of the clan dealing with Swaying Fronds has gone insane because of the stress and managed to hide his condition from the mind healers of his clan.
Jessica and Anders find themselves caught in the war that occurs between Swaying Fronds and the neighboring clan and trying to keep the fact that treecats can and will kill each other from the anthropologists with agendas. Jessica and Anders also find themselves falling in love despite the fact that Anders is Stephanie's boyfriend and Jessica is her best friend.
I especially liked the sections of the books that were told by the treecats. I could feel their frustration in trying to communicate with the various "two legs" in their lives. Fans of science fiction will enjoy this entertaining story.
Some are better than others, and for many different reasons.
This sub-series is very light.
As an adult reader, I zapped through this one pretty quickly and felt it was just "OK". Not a total waste of time, but close to it. I'd give it 3 stars for adults but 4 stars for YAs, for whom it is obviously intended (hopefully).
It was decently written, simple, straightforward, a tad boring, but had a sensible plot (that promises more to come), and ended "feel good" (unlike many recent Weber books -- but, then, he didn't really write it, did he).
I guess I'd characterize it as "adequate" and "harmless" and even somewhat enjoyable if you can't get enough Manticore (well, in this case mostly Sphinx) and treecat history/background.
If you're looking for a rip-roaring action adventure military space opera spy thriller, forgetaboutit.
