Lucius Dessida, the only son of Rhianwyn, has lived among the Gaians for nine years in a bid to maintain the Caledon’s peace, though his dual heritage means life in Tamora is more complex than he had thought.

Buddy read with Cat (BrewsandReviews)! Still such a fun series to read together.

Lion Cub occurs several years after the events of Leaping Wolf. We mostly focus on Lucius/Lucan (the son of Rhianwyn), as well as a new character, Merian. Lucius has been living among the Gaians (and making poor choices, my goodness). Merian is one of the Gorvicae and must seek help when her people are attacked by the Sarracs (I think they're basically Vikings?).

HOLY TWISTS AND TURNS BATMAN! You'd think that, given

I was sent this book by the author for review.

This book was such a ride! I fee like all I can say is to expect the unexpected, as there are so many twists and turns in Lion Cub that I couldn't predict what would happen next.

There was a large time skip between this book and the previous one, and the beginning of the book was predominantly set in Gaian society. Personally, I didn't love the sections in Tamora because the way that the Gaians and people there would act was less than honorable - but

Lion Cub blew me away. This one was probably the most intense of the saga. Not just because of the battle scenes, but because of the emotion behind the plot twists, and the way Harker showed us, as readers, the hard realities of the morality of the different sets of people in the Caledon world.

Not only were we brought back to the world, and story, of Wildcat and Leaping Wolf (Gawan), but we were taken to a new world of Tamora. Yes, we had been there before with Rhia (Wildcat), but times had chan

*I received a copy from the author for review. This does not affect my review.*

This series gets better with each book. While each book deals with war, and the high cost of war, they have so many things going on that its fascinating to see how they all fit together. While these are fantasy books, they have a strong feel of historical events as well. Warring tribes or clans, as well as a look at different lifestyles and the cultural differences between enemies and different peoples. At first it's

Trigger warnings for rape and violence.

The events of Lion Cub take place about 15 years after Leaping Wolf. Lucan has been living in Tamora with his Gaian aunt for the past nine years. Rhia is still leading the Caderyn and the Caledon. Gawan is an ornery old man. The Gorvicae are being overrun by Sarracs, who are butchering their people and taking their land while Taliesyn is holed up in his longhall with his cohort of the Dragon legion, like.. scared of his own shadow at this point, refusing to
