Let me preface this by giving you my prejudice right up front, I am a major fan of David Weber and of anthropomorphism.
Anyone who has read the Honor Harrington books will recognize the name: Treecat. This book is Weber’s entry into the Young Adult genre and it details first contact with the Treecats.
Weber may quantify this book as YA but it certainly reads as well and as interesting as all of his books. The characters are well defined and evoke positive emotions. I really enjoy the way Weber promotes loyalty, honor, responsibility and the rest of the Boy Scout motto.
Then there are the Treecats. If you have read any of my other reviews you have to be aware of how much I enjoy the interaction of minds between species. David Weber does it with such aplomb and panache that I sit in awe. Once again, Mr. Weber, you are an artist!
I highly recommend the book and not just for kids.
