I'm not sure why this second book in the Stephanie Harrington series got an additional author in it, but there you go. However, it doesn't seem to make any difference to the quality of the book. It is still the same very good read! The world building and the character development has been established in book one already and continued on in this book. And maybe I've just gotten used to the voice of the author or gotten more immersed in this world, that this book seems to go faster tha ...more
FUN YA SCIENCE FICTION NOVEL
(very minor spoilers)
This is the second novel about Stephanie Harrington and her treecat companion, Lionheart, set on the fascinating treecat home world. I hadn’t read the award winning first book, A Beautiful Friendship by David Weber, and came to this novel as I’m a fan of author Jane Lindskold’s short fiction and her novels (Through Wolf’s Eyes, Thirteen Orphans). You don’t need to read the first book in this series, A B ...more

1 - The characters were well developed and varied, and actually were believable. I hear a lot of people saying that most F&SF novels are flat, with little character development an ...more
It's a little odd to see such a short book from Weber; I thought he'd lost the ability to be concise. *grin* But Fire Season is just the right length. The plot moves along at a good pace but doesn't sacrifice character development. Weber does an unusually good job at creating female charac ...more
If I had the paperback, I could've just skimmed through and probably would've finished the book. But I really don't like listening to this sort of thing - even when I was a 15 year old girl it wasn't my thing at all. Disapointing.
Unlike Tamora Pierce, I didn't find it thrilling or edge-of-m ...more
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 fourteen-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...more
New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal and international bestselling phenomenon David Weber delivers the second entry in an original young adult science fiction adventure series.
Young forest ranger Stephanie Harrington and her treecat companion Climbs Quickly battle natural forest fire and very human enemies on a pioneer planet. Prequel to the Honor Harrington adult science fiction saga.
Second entry in a new young adult series by New York Times best seller David Weber, and the pre
Fire Season is the second Stephanie Harrington novel, the new YA series from David Weber. I thoroughly enjoyed A Beautiful Friendship, so reading Fire Season was a no-brainer. I knew that Jane Lindskold was on board for co-writing duties, and I questioned how this would effect the novel, and how different it could be in tone and style to A Beautiful Friendship. Turns out the answer wasn't what I hoped for, and Fire Season marked a change in both style and ...more
You don't have read the first book, "A Beautiful Friendship," to enjoy "Fire Season" but it helps because this book assumes you are familiar with what Treecats and Hexapumas are.
Treecats are furry six-legged creatures that are extremely intelligent and look like large cats ...more
Many of his stories have military, particularly naval, themes, and fit into the military science fiction genre. He frequently places female leading characters in what have been traditionally male roles.
One of his most popular and enduring characters is Honor Harrington whose alliterated name ...more
