Book Review: The Wildcat of Braeton

  Summary: His term of service to Lord Rishdah now complete, Aiden returns to his home in Braeton. As he travels he hears rumors that trouble plagues Braeton. Clan Canich is being attacked from within. He arrives, determined to save his father, his brothers, and his Clan from the treachery of one man.
 A year has passed since the Calorins were driven from Aredor and Corin is struggling to rebuild his country. Despite the peace, a fear haunts him that the Calorins aren’t far away. The Hawk Flight takes to the forest again to defend the borders against a possible attack from the neighboring country of Durna and its Calorin ally. 
 As Aiden and Corin struggle to adapt to their new lives they know one thing for certain - war is coming to the North!

Thoughts: To be honest, this isn't exactly my favorite type of book. While the plot and settings were interesting, I just couldn't really get into the characters. Now, this is the sequel to Claire Banschbach's previous novel The Rise of Aredor, which I have not read yet, so maybe there was more to be had there. But I didn't feel like I missed too much that this book didn't recap for me and still felt the characters lacking much in the way of growth or development. So, not a bad book but not necessarily the best I've read either, and not a light read. I do look forward to seeing more from this author! 

Content: Mild violence is pretty much it, its a war but detail is usually bare minimum. This is Christian fantasy so its pretty much clean for all ages!
