Now the young cats who set off on a quest many moons ago have returned with a chilling message: The Clans must move to a new home, or risk extermination. But it is not easy to convince the cats to leave. Even if all four Clans agreed to travel together, the dangers waiting for them beyond their borders are impossible to predict.

    It was good! Actually, when I first tried out the Warriors series to see if I liked it, I started with the third series, "Power of Three" and the new forest where book four and beyond is going to take place in is the place that I first "set up" everything in my mind first, so it feels really familiar to me. I don't see why Squirrelpaw was not made a warrior in this book.

A little confusing, especially since she is Firestar's daughter. I loved Crowpaw's new name, though. It was so bittersweet. :(

    I am at the part of the book where te cats on the journey come back from midnight(the badger). They must convince their leaders to go to the great rock to see star clan. They must do this to save all of the cats in the forest. So i far i think this book is a good book. I think it is because i am currnetly having an read-atthon on talking cats! I think that the warrirors seirs is a great book to start on! I still wonder if they are going to save the cats on the clans...

Riverclan is the only clan that doesn't seem to be suffering, with their handy dandy river full of fish. By the way, Why can't the other Clans bordering the river fish from there too? Doesn't seem fair... Anywayy. This was another great book in the Warriors series. I didn't really know I could get so interested in a world of cats, but it's so.. suspenseful! :) I love Squirrelpaw and Brambleclaw's sweet little romance too. :)) The book was predictable, but in a way that you know what has to happen, you just don't know when or how it'll happen. Which is fine with mee. The journey to a new home was interesting to read about for me, and seeing the Clan boundaries slowly fade. Can't wait to read the next one. :)

    Seeing all the Clan cats leave their home was so heartbreaking! It was awesome to see them all come together as one Clan, though. I loved seeing them all work together and support each other.

I hope they can see each other again!

It went smoother than I thought it did. I'm eager to see the Clans settle down in their new home!

This helps me understand how the clans feel in this situation. I would recomend this book to people of all ages. It is a greate action/adventure book. It's combination of reality and fantusy makes this book seam almost real. This book has a little less action than I wanted. I Would give this book four stars. This is a good book though

    I really enjoyed this book. I love Erin Hunters writing style. This book starts of where Moonlight left off. The cats have just returned from there quest to find Midnight. They have found out that they must leave the forest to find a new home because the Twolegs are destroying the forest. The conflict comes in when some of the clans can't or won't leave the forest for one reason or another. I really like how we can see Brambleclaw and Squirrelpaws relationship grow stronger in this book. I also I really enjoyed this book. I love Erin Hunters writing style.

    The theme and plot of this book was interesting to follow, but the average length of each section of plot was too long, causing rather drawn out and slightly boring reading sometimes. This should not be a problem, however; makes a person empathize with the characters more or something, eh? Overall, I enjoyed the novel with about 36.348323% of vehemence. There is a great deal of opportunity for fantastically exhilarating events revealed by the end of it.

When Shadowclan’s camp is destroyed, Thunderclan, Riverclan and Windclan rush to help them. Riverclan and Shadowclan finally realize that they need to leave their home to survive and agree to travel with Thunderclan and Windclan to find new territory. On the way, they encounter The Tribe of Rushing Water, who shelter them for a few nights and help their injured and sick cats. Brambleclaw, Squirrelpaw, Stormfur, Crowpaw, Feathertail and Tawnypelt met them on their journey from the sun-drown place back home and had helped them defeat Sharptooth, an evil mountain lion who had been preying on the tribe. I really enjoyed this book but however, I feel like their journey should have taken longer, like in the first and second books in the series. They made it to the tribe in only a couple of chapters, and in the second book, it took them nearly the whole time. I also didn’t like that it was a little too dramatic and everything happened kind of quickly. I also really like Shadowclan and I was kind of annoyed because they were being the most stubborn and were going to move to twolegplace (a town) to survive as rogues. (Vicious wild cats who belong to neither a tribe or clan and cause trouble for one of the two.) They finally realized that they needed to go with the other clans when they rescued them from the twoleg monsters. (Cars/ construction machines etc.) I did really like how cheerful and energetic Squirrelpaw was though. When the other cats were depressed or grieving, she somehow cheered them up whether she tried to or not, sometimes by humiliating herself or making comments about the senior warriors. She is one of my favorite characters even though she’s from Thunderclan, and she made me laugh a lot. I think what Erin Hunter is trying to tell us is that itś okay to start new and leave old things behind even though itś sometimes hard. The clans will live on!

    I had really liked the plot and the ideas in this book. It pretty much rocked. Erin’s way of storytelling is always keeping me interested and excited about the events in the book, which I appreciate because it can even addict people who don’t like cats. This book was definitely the coolest and most absorbing book in the whole “The New Prophecy” series.

    I think that this book was really really good! (Except for some sad parts) It was filled with sadness, kindness, and still some cats were worried about Clan border lines! But i'm happy to say it was a great book. One of my favorite things about warrior series is the adventure, and there is some in every book. I think that this book was really really good!

But not only has the destruction already begun – the suffering Clans seem unwilling to work together, let alone leave what's been their home for generations. Even so, Squirrelpaw refuses to give in to despair. She knows the future of the forest cats lies in her paws and those of her companions. Can they persuade their Clans to do what they must to survive? Story/Writing: What is it with the third books in these arcs that make me all emotional? That may sound like a joke, and it kinda is, but I'm serious! So much happens in this book that I'm amazed they managed to keep it contained in this many pages rather than a super edition. The way this book is written, packed with so much content yet not making it feel rushed or half done, really shows how masterful these authors are at this. I felt so many emotions throughout this book and at one point, I felt like I was gonna cry. More on that in a minute. Like I said, this book may be less than four-hundred pages, but I only realized a ton of stuff happened in those pages when I finished it. Not only that, but it felt coherent! The pacing felt as natural and free-flowing as a river. It felt like previous events and decisions would lead to the things that happen in this book. Not least of which is that…(*sigh*)…the Clans leave the forest that's been their home since the very beginning. That was the part that really got me in the feels – as if the beginning where Fourtrees is torn down didn't achieve that already! Talk about a bold start! Anyway, I may have brought this up before, but I'm gonna bring it up one more time. While I didn't read this book when it first came out, given that I've been reading this series in chronological order, so many of the thirty-something titles I've read took place in this forest. It now feels like – through reading this series chronologically – I've watching the Clans grow like kids. They've come so far in the fifty years they've existed (according to my estimates) since the events in the "Dawn of the Clans" arc. I'm so proud of them! But in all seriousness, I knew what was gonna happen in this arc, but now that I'm actually reading it, it's really emotional. It was hard enough to read about the forest being torn down and the Clans suffering because of it. But now that they're truly leaving the place (or what's left of it) that's been their home for generations, never to return…I'd probably get the same feeling if I had to leave the house I grew up in. Don't get me wrong, I'm so glad they found a new home. But saying goodbye to the forest made me quite a bit more emotional than I thought it would. Characters: Once again, these characters feel so human (for lack of a better word) and so real, it almost hurts. I say that because it was so hard reading about how much these great Clans of cats were suffering. They weren't just losing their home, they were bearing the brunt of the results – losing their territory, their food, their faith in StarClan, etc… Speaking of which, I liked that there were challenges of faith in this book. And it's all built up so well! You feel your faith beginning to waver along with theirs, and then when they figure out certain things, it suddenly seems so obvious it makes you feel so stupid for not figuring it out sooner! I of course mean that in a good way. That all said, some characters stood head and shoulders above the others. Squirrelpaw – I'm beginning to notice a trend in this arc that the cat depicted on the cover is usually the one whose point of view is being read in that particular story. In this case, since Squirrelpaw is on both versions of the cover, it's not surprising that half the story is read through her eyes. And man am I glad it is! Squirrelpaw truly has come a long way since her days as a know-it-all apprentice. I'm gonna be really frustrated if she's not made a warrior in "Starlight" 'cause she totally deserves it at this point! She truly is her parents' daughter, 'cause it really feels like she's a combination of their best traits. She has her father's unwavering faith in StarClan, and her mother's stubborn perseverance. Yet at the same time, she feels like her own character. One of my favorite parts in this book is when she leads the mission to rescue not just her sister but all the other cats. That's another thing about her that's just awesome. She'd go to the Dark Forest and back for her loved ones! She's just amazing in this book! Leafpaw – Like in the two previous books in this arc, half of this book is told through Leafpaw's eyes. Although, in this particular book, it feels like her point of view naturally complements her sister's. It shows the differences in their personalities and yet shows how both of them are great! Whereas Squirrelpaw is more of a tomboy, Leafpaw is more of a girly-girl. But she's in no way an annoying kind of girly-girl. She's really wise for her age, and another one of my favorite parts is when she talks with her father about how the things that separate the Clans also bind them to one another. I just thought that was brilliant. She's also quite literally a first-responder, always willing to help any injured or ill cat. I also thought it was an ironic contrast in that Squirrelpaw is a warrior whose faith in StarClan never wavers, while Leafpaw is a medicine cat apprentice yet often wonders if StarClan is with them. And of course, I need to say I loved the scenes where she and her sister bond. It reminds me of me and my sister. Brambleclaw – Now that I've covered our leading ladies, here is where I cover our leading men (so to speak). Brambleclaw is still the same noble warrior from a less-than-noble legacy, but there are plenty of new things to keep him interesting. It's clear that he and Squirrelpaw are falling for each other (Isn't that usually the case for couples who fight in the beginning?), yet I like that they argue every once in a while. It feels more realistic, as does another new conflict of his. It's in this book that Brambleclaw learns that Hawkfrost is his half-brother. Again, it's now kind of obvious given how they're described as looking a lot alike. But at the same time you can tell they're almost the complete opposite of the other. Not only that; he also knows how uneasy Squirrelpaw is about Hawkfrost and finds it hard not to take it personally when she starts comparing them, whether intentionally or not. He's had to fight the stigma of being Tigerstar's son for so long it feels natural for him at this point. Stormfur – As for Stormfur, when his faith in StarClan began to waver, it was just heartbreaking because he felt like one of the most faithful of the traveling cats, even though StarClan called his sister rather than him in the beginning. I'm also glad in a way that he chooses to stay with the Tribe of Rushing Water. I kinda knew he was gonna end up there, but now I totally understand why. I even felt kinda guilty that I didn't realize how much he's lost until he outright says so. He never got to know the mother who died to give him and his sister life, his father has been captured by Twolegs, and his sister sacrificed her life to save both the tribe and her Clan friends. Not to mention he lost his mentor Stonefur. Now he's not just fallen in love with Brook; he's also shown how much of a natural he is among the Tribe, if unintentionally. He's finally found something stable in his life. I personally think he made the right decision, but it's always sad to see a warrior leave the Clans. Various Other Characters – Here, I'm gonna start with the four Clan leaders. Firestar is just as fantastic as always. It's clear to me that he was born to be a Clan leader. One of my favorite things about him is how well he's able to keep a level head while dealing with such incredible amounts of stress, both immediate and everyday. He may no longer be the main character, but he'll always shine bright in any book he's in. With Blackstar and Leopardstar, I understood why they made the decisions they did at first. They're warrior leaders devoted to their Clans and feel that dealing with one Clan is enough. At the same time, it was so incredibly frustrating to read about them being so stubborn. Fortunately, they do eventually make the right decision to leave with the Clans. But still, they had to personally suffer in order to make that decision. Last but not least is Tallstar. This case is particularly bittersweet. I loved his character in "Tallstar's Revenge," and since then he's proven himself to be a courageous and utterly devoted leader who'll get his Clan through any hardship. At the same time, I know from the bonus chapter at the end of his super edition that he dies not long after they reach their new home. It makes sense given he's over ten years old at this point. Still, he dedicated all of his nine lives to serving his cats and will go down in history as one of WindClan's greatest leaders (if he hasn't already). As for other characters, I liked that Stoneteller was willing to be as hospitable as he was toward all four Clans. Tawnypelt arguably saved her Clan simply by reaching ThunderClan in time, while Mudclaw nearly destroyed his when they crossed the Thunderpath too early. It was so sad reading about Firestar and Ravenpaw saying what are most likely their last goodbyes. And Crowpaw is now Crowfeather, and even chose his warrior name to honor Feathertail's memory. The one character that really did kinda surprise me was Sasha. I know she's proud of her kits, and I still like her character a lot, having read her graphic novel trilogy. But for whatever reason, she came off as a little bit smug to me at times. I do like though that she's still kinda looking out for Hawkfrost and Mothwing, such as when she invites them to come with her when the forest is torn down. Overall: Amazing, amazing book, especially if you've been reading the books in the way I have. It's really sad that the forest is now gone forever, but I look forward to reading about how they adjust to their new home around the lake!
