From the very first adventure with Honor Harrington I have been in love with the treecats. What cat lover wouldn’t want a friendship with these cat-like creatures who are more loyal than any pet, intelligent and extremely intuitive. When Stephanie Harrington first meet her treecat is purely by accident; which wouldn’t have happened if she had followed the rules! But then, what Harrington female ever followed the rules! But then, what Harrington female ever followed the rules? This is a wonderful story about the first bonding between treecats and humans. When enemies try to make certain Sphinx stays entirely in the the hands of humans even if it means exterminating all treecats, Stephanie and her treecat, Climbs Quickly, makes sure things turn out the way they should!
