Publisher's Summary

Here is the second entry in a new young-adult series by New York Times best seller David Weber and the prequel to the hugely popular Honor Harrington adult science-fiction saga.
Fire in the forest – and a cry for help from a trapped and desperate alien mother! Unfortunately, this is one cry no human can hear. Stephanie Harrington, precocious 14-year-old Provisional Forest Ranger on the planet Sphinx, knows something is wrong from the uneasy emotion that is flooding into her from her treecat friend, Climbs Quickly. But though Stephanie’s alien comrade shares a tight bond with his two-legs, whom he knows as Death Fang’s Bane, he cannot communicate directly to her the anguished call from one of his people. Still, their strong and direct bond of feeling may be enough. Stephanie and fellow ranger Karl Zivonik respond to Climbs Quickly’s rising waves of distress.
Fire season on the pioneer world of Sphinx has begun. But there are those who want to use the natural cycle of the planet for personal gain – and to get rid of the one obstacle that stands in the way of acquiring even greater land and power on Spinx: the native treecats.
Now it's up to Stephanie and Climbs Quickly, along with their friends, family, and allies, to prevent disaster and injustice from befalling a treecat clan. But in the process, Stephanie must be certain to preserve the greatest secret all. It is the knowledge that the treecats of Sphinx are not merely pets or servants, but are highly intelligent in their own right – that they are a species fully deserving of rights, respect, and freedom. And keeping the secret that will allow the treecats time to develop a mutually beneficial relationship with humankind all begins with the friendship of a girl and her treecat.

More treecats!!

The second book in this new YA series, Fire Kingdom is an enjoyable story. I like David Weber's Honorverse, but don't like listening to most of them. Too many meetings to explain strategy and too much description of military technology. This series has the human interest that I enjoy in DW's books, and I don't have to skip over page after page of uninteresting detail. A fun story, with lots more information about treecats, the most interesting characters in DW's books!

Fire Season Book 2

I like the series with the cats which is a new twist in this genre. Too short but it is aimed at young adults. I hope to see more in this series. Not a bad listen at all and a nice other world series. One for the whole family to enjoy on a road trip!

alien space cats 2

Would you listen to Fire Season again? Why?

I enjoyed this bbok despite being a teen read book and I would read it again.

What other book might you compare Fire Season to, and why?

It's a book follow up to A beautiful freindship which was the first book and the thrid book is due out soon!

What does Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Hvam performs this book well as well as the first book.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Tag line for this if it was a film would have to be Tree Cats! See this film. Like you'd need anything else.

Any additional comments?

Read A beautiful friendship first. (I can't wait to read the third one)
