Présentation de l'éditeur

New York Times and Publishers Weekly Best Selling Young Adult Series. Book Three by international writing phenomenon David Weber. Two young settlers on a pioneer planet seeks to stop a war and to save the intelligent alien treecats from exploitation by unscrupulous humans.

The fires are out, but the trouble’s just beginning for the treecats.

On pioneer planet Sphinx, ruined lands and the approach of winter force the now Landless Clan to seek new territory. They have one big problem—there’s nowhere to go. Worse, their efforts to find a new home awaken the enmity of the closest treecat clan—a stronger group who’s not giving up a single branch without a fight.

Stephanie Harrington, the treecats’ greatest advocate, is off to Manticore for extensive training—and up to her ears in challenges there. That leaves only Stephanie’s best friends, Jessica and Anders, to save the treecats from themselves. And now a group of xenoanthropologists is once again after the great secret of the treecats—that they are intelligent, empathic telepaths—and their agenda will lead to nothing less that treecat exploitation.

Finally, Jessica and Anders face problems of their own, including their growing attraction to one another. It is an attraction that seems a betrayal of Stephanie Harrington, the best friend either of them have ever had.

At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

Lexile Score: 1000

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 and 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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good characterization. Treecats 31 mai 2016
Par Thomas Weyandt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Good characterization. Treecats, six limbed intelligent catlike creatures tell their own story and humans are along for the ride! Humans have equally important storylines as the cats who are not pets or animals but telepathic and empathic among themselves and are telempathic with humans but cannot read human minds the way they can read each other's minds. Some telempathically bond with humans, adopting them as it with their human partners able to find them wherever they are and feel their emotions. However, as humans are not telepathic and treecats find the concept of spoken language very hard for the telepathic cats to wrap their minds around, communication can be very difficult, a barrier that the characters need to overcome creatively to get their points across to each other. But they manage and the cats can always detect the emotions of bad guys planning their bond mates harm and as well as the those of their friends and you don't want to piss off a cat as they have sharp fangs and claws.. The bond is unbreakable for the life of the humans and treecats involved and they will do whatever is needed to protect their bond mates. Enjoy!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I realize that the target audience for this series is the Young Adult (YA) age group 23 février 2014

Treecat Wars
(2013)

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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Well rounded youth SF, that adults can enjoy. 6 juillet 2016

This is the third book in a series. You could enter here and understand all the relationships. Why do that though, when reading the other two is so enjoyable?
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.

Spinx's human and treecat populations are dealing with the aftermath of the fire season. Because all the rangers are needed, Stephanie and Karl are given the opportunity to go to a special forestry course on Manticore. While Stephanie is excited for the opportunity, she is very hesitant to leave her new boyfriend Anders behind. She is also worried about taking Lionheart away from Sphinx.

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.

Stephanie and her friend and fellow Forester Trainee Karl are selected by the Sphinx Forestry Service to go to Manticore for a training course, mostly because the wildfires that were central to the previous book, Fire Season, had done so much damage that all the fully-qualified Foresters were needed on Sphinx with winter slowly coming on. (Sphinx’s orbital period is something like 10 years, so its seasons are Long. Stephanie still hasn’t lived through a full cycle of seasons in the 7 years or so she’s lived on Sphinx.) Stephanie is torn because she’s infatuated with Anders, whom she met and fell for in Fire Season, and he’s only going to be around for another few T-months before he’ll have to go back to his home planet for college. But she can’t pass up the opportunity, much as she knows she’ll miss him, and he doesn’t want her to. So the story splits, with Stephanie and Karl encountering some political scheming on Manticore and Anders and Stephanie’s best friend Jessica dealing with a treecat tribe whose usual range was wiped out in the wild-fires, and who seem to have no chance because there’s no possibility of their accumulating the kind of food surplus needed to get through a Sphinxian winter from what’s left of their old territory, and that territory is surrounded by either the ranges of other treecat clans or human settlements. I think Lindskold is an inspired choice as a collaborator on this series, because while Weber invented treecats, Lindskold is one of the best SF writers I’ve found at making alien species both alien and engaging, and I’m pretty sure I can see her touches here.
