    1. When I first saw the cover for this book I thought, "How beautiful! This book is going to be even better than the last!" This opinion was reinforced by others reviews. But I am so sad to say this book was horribly disappointing. I had great expectations for it and was very sad with how it turned out.(Please note there are some spoilers.)What I didn't like about it:It honestly felt like an afterthought, like Miss Banschbach was only planning on Rise of Aredor (which I loved) and didn't plan this [...]

    2. Ooh, hard one to rate! Don’t let my low(ish) rating (3.5 stars) stop you from picking up this novel; The Wildcat of Braeton really was quite an impressive book…set in the middle of a well-done, fascinating, non-magic fantasy world, and brimming with great characters. It follows The Rise of Aredor and continues the grand adventures of Aiden and Corin, and all their friends and loved ones. There’s epic battles, wonderful friendships, and endearing romance. The quest to guard Aredor continues [...]

    3. With the first book in the series tucked under my belt, I dove into this sequel expecting a huge amount of fighting, battle scenes and more masculinity that you can shake a stick at. What I got was more warrior women, *cheers* romance, *cheers again* more depth, tighter writing, and layers to the characters we’d come to love in Rise of Aredor.Aiden grew to be my favourite lad, his charm and grit, most definitely swoon-worthy. His playful banter with a certain female warrior, sweet, endearing a [...]

    4. Shh, leave me alone. I need to stop sobbing before I can gather my thoughts to review this. It might be awhile. UPDATE: Okay, I'm *mostly* fine now. ;) This book. While I do have a few critiques, I REALLY loved this book! Let's start with what I didn't like and get it out of the way.The writing was a bit all-over. There wasn't really a main storyline, more like a bunch of storylines all spread throughout, some major ones even being wrapped up in the first 30% of the book. While it didn't bother [...]

    5. Like The Rise of Aredor, this book is written in an epic, build-up style of writing. It takes a long time building the characters, building the threat, building the culture, before everything explodes in the climax. The character problems adjusting to their new lives gives enough drama to keep the reader hooked all the way until the end. I loved connecting with Aiden and Corin again. After so long in Calorin, both of these main characters struggle with the adjustment of returning home and reconn [...]

    6. Recommended for: Ages 10 to AdultRating: PG (for violence)The Wildcat of Braeton is definitely a step up from The Rise of Aredor. I certainly liked it better. While it still doesn't make it to my favorites, it is enough for me to continue following this author's career.Writing: 4/5It felt better written than the last book, certainly. There's still more telling than showing, and the character point of view could be deeper, but there was less head hopping and the story was much easier for me to fo [...]

    7. This was great!!! I loved seeing all these characters again and meeting new characters that were just as fantastic.Aiden has finished his seven years of service to Lord Rishdah. He stays a little longer, but then knows he must head home…to Braeton. He is frightened. He does not know how his family will receive him after running away so long ago. Even more important, is the troubling news he hears of Clan Canich. Someone is slowly taking control of his clan, from the inside. He has to save them [...]

    8. Whelp. I have some mixed feelings here, though I don't think they are bad. I GREATLY appreciated the humor in this story! Though we had some humor in book one, it felt much more prominent in this one, which I am very thankful for. Thanks to a few friends, I already knew the ending would be a tear-jerker and they were in fact right. Remembering those snarky comments and general laughter helped eased some of the pain, but at the same time made it worst.Confession: I might have skimmed some of the [...]

    9. This book is amazing!!!! Ah, i just love Corin! :) And Aiden. :) For those of you who have not read this series read it right now!! ;) But do NOT read the Epilogue AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! *Sobbing* The whole book was totally amazing one of my favorite books, but the epilogue was just so sad! :(But still read the book. If you don't like sad endings don't read the epilogue. Well I thought it was really sad but some people might like it. :) But all in all it was totally amazing!! :D

    10. I personally liked this better than Book 1 in the series. It still took me a few chapters to get into it, but I loved reconnecting with the characters from Rise of Aredor. Just like Aredor, this book is filled with battles and oppressors. Claire does a good job depicting battle scenes (for my preference) -- not too much gore but just enough details for you to understand what's going on and feel the heat and excitement.For about the first half, I had a hard time keeping characters straight becaus [...]

    11. I enjoyed reading this book. I had some difficulty with sorting out the different characters at first. As I got to know the characters better, I really felt like I was in the story, which is great! I would not recommend this book for younger kids because of the description of the battle scenes, but overall it was a great story and a good read. I look forward to reading more books by this author. Oh, and I really like the front cover!I received a free e-copy of this book as part of a promotion in [...]

    12. It is one thing, to write one book. Incredibly difficult, and well worth the time, but many writers wear themselves and their ideas out on the first one. Others, are filled with the insatiable need to keep writing. This sequel felt like it came from a writer who had suddenly discovered the monster inside; the beast that thirsts for words, sentences, paragraphsl full of character development, subplots and a worrisome amount of conflict.The reading was a lot smoother in this one, and I can almost [...]

    13. Friendship that lasts to the end of one’s life is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain in the light of the high mobility of the nomadic 21st Century. And yet friendship – true, lasting friendship – is one of the gaping holes in our societal chests. It is a large theme fleshed out in Tolkien’s works like “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings” and it is a major tone vibrating through Claire M. Banscbach’s “The Wildcat of Braeton”. This 447 page paperback written for [...]

    14. This is a very difficult book to review. I feel like I have a bit of a rare opinion because there are a ton of 4-5 star ratings, so don't let my low rating stop you from trying it out. It might just be me.Things that deserved a 4-star:-Corin and his paperwork. It was brilliantly funny. -Gerralt. I mean, what's not to like about the grouchy secretary that everyone's terrified of?-Gwilym. He was adorable. And heartbreaking. (view spoiler)[BECAUSE HE SAW MARTIN DIE AND HE WAS THE PART OF THE ENDING [...]

    15. I was suffering for a huge reading slump while in the middle of this book. It was a big bummer. I'm having trouble reviewing this one. We got to see most of our favorite characters again. Corin repeatedly tells his men that this second war will be harder than the first because the Calorins know their fighting techniques, but I had some trouble buying that since the last time they were fighting from the trees, collecting men to help fight by saving them from slavery. The Calorins may have had a [...]

    16. I was happy to receive a free copy of The Wildcat of Braeton from the author, Claire M. Banschbach. As the second book in The Rise of Aredor series, I was at a slight disadvantage to other readers because I hadn’t read the book before it in the series. Despite that I was able to jump right into the story and begin enjoying it immediately. Emeth, (or as his real name was Aiden), has served seven years with the Calorins under Lord Rishdah. Although he’s had many adventures, he’s ready to lea [...]

    17. I WOULD LIKE TO STATE THAT I RECEIVED THIS COPY AS PART OF A FREE PROMOTION. The second installment of this series was well written. The characters were more mixed this time, with more of a female presence than in the first book: The Rise of Aredor. Most of the dialogue was natural and flowed well. The banter was great, with plenty of humour. The action was spaced out more than in the previous book with less of a focus on war and more attention shown to the various relationships portrayed and ma [...]

    18. The book is a sequel that is better than the original. As with The Rise of Aredor, Claire has created wonderful characters who you care about. Like, a character I was fond of got hurt, and I was upset with Claire. That is a pretty extreme response I think. The story hit a lot of different emotional marks, far more than The Rise of Aredor. I want to be clear, I loved The Rise of Aredor. I got a copy of this book (ebook) from Claire to review. I highly recommend this book and its predecessor.
