GO NO FURTHER IF YOU ARE NOT UP TO THIS POINT IN SERIES... unless you like reading ahead... because I love it!!! btw it seems long but read it any way please!!?!! Any way, who, here we are right, one book away from finishing the second saga of the Warriors series. Well we rejoin the new narrators of this saga. As you know, in the last saga Firestar was the narrator 100% of the time. Well in this saga the view switches between Brambleclaw, Squirrelflight, and occasionally her sister Leafpool the medicine cat. The clans have just started to settle into their new lakeside homes, and clan rivalry is starting to build up a wall between the five cats who went on the journey to discover the new warriors camp grounds. After their forest was destroyed by the twolegs, the clans where forced to journey back with the group. They relied on one another during this time, and for a while, It seemed like they were just one big clan. Now that they have arrived, they are settling back into the old mistrust between rival clans. Brambleclaw is not bothered by this at all, and continues as if they never left their old forest. But Squirrelflight is very bothered by the hostility her past friends now show towards each other and to her. While all of this was happening, the clans where busily trying to rebuild this new land to fit their needs. For instance, finding a new gathering place. They chose a little island close to the shore of the lake. Also, Leafpool stumbles upon a new place to Share tongues with Starclan. The Moonstone is now the Moonpool. Now time for the more intricate story. And just for you girls it's a love story. *AWWWWWW* Brambleclaw is in love with Squirrelflight (FYI she and leafpool are Firestar and Sandstorm's only kits) and she with him. But a stupid fight breaks out because of Hawkfrost, Brambleclaw's half brother. (FYI Their father was Tigerclaw DUN...DUN...DUN!!!) (FYI again, Hawkfrost lives in Riverclan because his mother was a rough who left her kits with them, so Hawkfrost is half rough and half Thunderclan...well techniquly all rough because Tigerclaw was exiled when he tried to take over Thunderclan with murder. Then he was killed by the bloodclan leader who... I'm going to shut up now.) She has strange feelings about him (Hawkfrost, if you forgot...yeah) and tries to tell Brambleclaw, but he thinks she only mistrusts him because Hawfrost's father was an exile, which would mean she could say the same about him. Squirrelflight then began to suspect that brambleclaw had more loyalty to his half brother then to Thunderclan. When she told him so (she is pretty direct isn't she?) They had an enormous argument about his fathers past, and how that has nothing to do with it, and that she knows Brambleclaw isn't like that, and him not believing her (sorry its been a long while since I’ve had the chance to sit down with this book, my memory is a little vague.) The result, Brambleclaw chasing her away (not literally) right into the paws of Ashfur, a secret onlooker of Swirrelflight's. (OOOOOOOOHHHHH) and now they hardly even glance at each other. Brambleclaw yearns to be at her side again, but puts up a tough front, not letting it show. Squirrelfight, however, lets her emotions show. She is still outraged inside and out.(And it doesn't say anything, but I think that she's trying to make him jealous with Ashfur, and it is working) Well that's as far as I’ve gotten so far, and this supposed to be a book "review" isn't it maybe I should have told you my opinion, not the plot its self. Well we certainly "re-viewed" the whole plot didn't we? Well, my opinion of this book/whole series is... MUST READ ALL OF THEM IN ONE NIGHT!!! NO PUTTING IT DOWN UNLESS YOU'VE BEEN IN YOUR ROOM READING FOR A WEEK AND YOUR MOM HAS TO PRY THE BOOK OUT OF YOUR HANDS TO MAKE YOU TAKE A SHOWER! School cut down on my reading time, that’s the only reason I put it down. HOLY!!!!!! I had no idea how long this was *sweatdrop* This better get a good grade... this does count for the letter right? it better....

An ominous promise foretells the death of a young cat and with looming danger of claws and teeth, how can the clans survive in this unknown place? This book follows Squirrelflight and Leafpool, each female cat dealing with her own secret issues. The love hinted between Leafpool and Crowfeather in the last book is expanded and the reader should expect the unexpected while reading this book. Squirrelflight on the other hand develops a stronger relationship with Ashfur as Brambleclaw continues to lose favor in her sight. Thunderclan's least favorite clans ask for their help while the alliance they seemed to have with the other clan seems to shatter into pieces. It's hard to talk about this book without giving anything important away about the plot. This entire book is plot driven unlike several of the prior books so blogging about it is much harder than it has been.

But Cinderpelt was one of my favorite characters, why did she have to get killed by a badger? And she was so young, she had a long life ahead of her. But I'm glad Squirrelflight and Brambleclaw are finally starting to get along. I can't wait to see what's in the next and final book in The New Prophecy. This book was AMAZING!

    Despite the lack of action, I enjoyed this one a lot more than the fourth book! There was a lot of focus on character development, and I really felt for the struggles that all the cats were going through. Leafpaw most of all. Her feelings of abandonment from her Clan - feeling replaced by Brightheart, conflict with her sister, and guilt over loving Crowfeather - were completely relatable.

The fact that she felt like they didn't want her anymore, even though they truly did want and need her was so heartbreaking. (hide spoiler)] The continuing conflict between Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight killed me, too. I was hoping their issues would be resolved soon, but the chasm only grew :( I'm hoping it's resolved in the final book of the series! I also don't like where Brambleclaw's character is going - he was such a strong, honorable cat in the beginning of the series; to see him succumbing to ambition like his father is so hard. I hope he sees sense soon as well! (view spoiler)[Cinderpelt. I AM NOT OKAY. Her death was almost as rough as Bluestar's and Yellowfang's! I was legit sobbing, I can't deal man. I CAN'T. My heart is broken. Side note: I NEED MY GRAYSTRIPE BACK NOW PLS. (hide spoiler)]

    Technically 3.5 stars, but I refuse to give four because the relationships were all so forced. Much better than the previous few. This one had good pace and some really good ideas such as the difficulty with the clans helping one another. The kitty romance would have worked better had I believed either of these characters really cared about each other beyond the fact that the authors told me so. I'm also disappointed to be denied Brambleclaw's perspective, but I suspect that will be the next book Technically 3.5 stars, but I refuse to give four because the relationships were all so forced.

I'm also disappointed to be denied Brambleclaw's perspective, but I suspect that will be the next book. I want more scenes with the Dark Forest. Oh yes, the end actually did upset me because I really love that character. One more thing of note, while Leafpool has excuse to distrust Brambleclaw, Squirreflight's attitude seemed really forced and only done for sake of kitty love triangle. Ugh.

I'm kinda on the fence about the Squirrelflight, Brambleclaw and Ashfur love triangle because I feel like Squirrelflight is just using Ashfur as a replacement Brambleclaw and when Squirrelflight is around Ashfur it seems like the writers kinda forgot about her character. Whenever Squirrelflight was with Brambleclaw she'd always bite his head off for trying to 'protect' her, it seems with Ashfur the writers kinda forgot about that till the very end and then were like "OH yeah, she's meant to be fiesty and strong-willed". I was happy when Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight FINALLY started getting along. I very much enjoyed the rising tensions between clans even though so far it hasn't lead up to anything. Last but not least the ending was very sad, it tore me apart to see Cinderpelt had died, it also tore me apart when Leafpool realised her and Crowfeather could never be together. Broken hearts and tears everywhere!

    3.5☆ It's tough spending half this book in Squirrelflight's head when she's such an unkind whack-job. She is blind to her own sister's faults, but detests Brambleclaw for the same reason. If she could just realize that the way she felt when (view spoiler)[Leafpool disappeared (hide spoiler)] is how Brambleclaw felt about his siblings, she'd realize they have the same thing in common, instead of letting their shared feelings seperate them.

Whenever she's mad at Brambleclaw, she says the first nasty thing she can think of, instead of weighing the options first. Eventually all the nastiness snowballs and they hate each other, and, her being the clueless dolt she is, doesn't understand what happened. Leafpool's chapters are bland to me, (view spoiler)[and I don't feel the love that is supposedly worth giving up her Clan for (hide spoiler)] . I rated this high the first time I read it, but having read all the books, this is certainly the weakest in the saga.

It really made me aggravated how they quarreled throughout the book. But I'm SUPER excited for the next book! Last one in series 2! But, I'm wondering, since so much time passed from the ending of series 1 to the beginning of series 2, how much time will pass at the end of series 2, or is there going to be any time pass? I don't know. But anyway, this is a great book, once you get past the repetitive quarreling.

    Warriors-Twilight, is my favorite book ever written! It’s filled with action, conflict, and mystery… Squirrelflight is at war with herself trying to decide- Brambleclaw, or Ashfur? Her sister, Leafpool, a medicine cat, is in love with Crowfeather, a Windclan warrior. (Medicine cats aren’t supposed to fall in love, especially with cats from other clans!) Thunderclan is beginning to recover from their long journey, and Sorreltail will be the first queen to use the new nursery! As I said before, Tw Warriors-Twilight, is my favorite book ever written! It’s filled with action, conflict, and mystery… Squirrelflight is at war with herself trying to decide- Brambleclaw, or Ashfur?

Thunderclan is beginning to recover from their long journey, and Sorreltail will be the first queen to use the new nursery! As I said before, Twilight is my favorite book. I remember savoring every page of it I read and taking longer than usual to read it. (I can usually read a warriors book in a day or two if I read quickly) I think Leafpool should’ve spent more time with Crowfeather than she did or Erin could have let us read one of their meetings from her perspective, other than having Squirrelflight stalk her. Otherwise, this book is fabulous!! I’m going to end up reading this over, and over, and over! I think Squirrelflight is my favorite character in this book, because she is able to defend herself from other cats’ accusations and insults, (usually with a fiery retort) she is loyal to her clan, and she has an interesting personality. I like all of the characters, I just find Squirrelflight the most entertaining out of all of them. The theme of this book is to follow your heart. Spottedleaf told Leafpool to follow her heart and make the decision she wanted about Crowfeather. “No cat can make this choice for you,” Spottedleaf replied, letting the tip of her tail brush against Leafpool’s shoulder. “Deep inside, you know what is right, and you must follow your heart.” Leafpool had run from Cinderpelt, who had accused her of treachery for loving Crowfeather, and had come to the Moonpool, and was met by Spottedleaf, who gave her that message. When Leafpool returns to Thunderclan to save her clanmates, who are in danger Crowfeather tells her that he knew she loved him, but not enough to give everything up for him. This book was sad, yet amazing.

    A cunning plot is in motion where the spirit of Tigerstar is influencing his sons, Brambleclaw and Hawkfrost for the bad. Brambleclaw is more than a little credulous. The Erins do keep reiterating the obvious at times. Can be annoying.

Secrets, lies, deceit, and betrayed trust soon become part of their everyday lives. But will both she-cats be able to put aside their personal grievances and offenses long enough to come to the aid of all the Clans? Story/Writing: Man…I can't believe I once again managed to finish this book in two days! I know I've done that plenty of times now, but it never ceases to impress me! Or should I say, these books never cease to impress me! I was just riveted from the first page. A first page in a book is like an opening shot in a movie. They're supposed to grab your attention and make you immediately invested, and I'm happy to say this book did that flawlessly! It was also really emotional, more so perhaps than many of the titles I've read so far. The series in general is pretty emotional, but some books really do bring the feels more than others. Some of them have even made me cry, which is pretty difficult for any book to do. While this book in particular didn't make me cry, I felt so many feels that I was surprised that my brain didn't force me to slow down my reading to let it all sink in by the end of it, as was the case with "Starlight." Instead, I just sped right through it! Fortunately though I've always been a fast reader, especially when the energy and tension of a scene just leaps off the page. Funnily enough, the only thing I did kind of miss – which I am a little embarrassed to admit – is what happened in the very beginning and what it meant. But more on that later. Long story short, even when I knew I had to put the book down for a break every now and then, I didn't want to get away from it! The action, the intrigue, and especially the emotion just make for such a grand adventure. And in spite of the unfortunate coincidence that this book is called "Twilight," the romance here is written SO much better! Heck, one of the biggest achievements of this book for me personally is that there's a well-written love triangle! Characters: Once again, the characters are so engaging and so well-fleshed out. Reading this book made me feel like I was watching a movie. I felt like I was actually watching the characters in my head. They may be cats, but I felt every one of their feelings and understood their motivations completely, even when I disagreed with them. One of the most important things about any form of storytelling is the cast of characters. And the cast of characters in this world (long though the list may be) have won me over so incredibly that I could probably go on reading their adventures till the day I die! Well, maybe not, but you know what I mean! Leafpool – Throughout the "New Prophecy" arc, Leafpool's point of view has been one of the two read through. But here, she really takes center stage, and not just because she's on the cover (at least, the cover of the version I read). I knew from the time she was born at the end of "Firestar's Quest" that she and her sister were gonna be pretty special characters and important players in the history of the warrior Clans, and reading this, I'm so happy to have been proven right! Leafpool is such a heartfelt and soulful cat, but in her own way, she's just as awesome as her sister. For one thing, she was born to be a medicine cat. Whereas Squirrelflight is a great warrior, Leafpool is like a battlefield nurse. She's just a natural and knows exactly what to do at a moment's notice. Not to mention, in real life, it takes a lot of mental discipline to not just memorize all those remedies but also not panic in a high-stress situation. Leafpool especially proves this when she goes to help Mothwing when RiverClan has their crises involving the Twoleg chemicals. At the same time, man does she carry a lot of burdens throughout this book! In addition to looking after her Clan and helping others when they need it, she has to maintain the secret of Mothwing's lack of faith and keep her relationship with Crowfeather hidden from pretty much everyone. And even if you disagree with her regarding the latter, for me personally, while I know medicine cats aren't allowed to have mates and kits, I felt so bad for Leafpool and felt as frustrated as she did. What makes her character great though is how she deals with her flaws and her actions, which is the case for all great characters. Squirrelflight – Squirrelflight is the other character whose point of view we read through in this book, and I was so happy to find that out when I got to the first chapter! We also read through her point of view in "Dawn," and that was the book where her character totally won me over. And while I think Leafpool is definitely the main character in this book, her sister is just as likable as ever! It felt really interesting to read their different personalities and how Squirrelflight has her own flaws to deal with. On the one hand, she does have a tendency to shoot off her mouth and think before she acts, but at the same time, I totally understood her anger and growing anxiety toward Brambleclaw. Not only has she known this cat for pretty much her whole life. She's gotten to know him far better when they went to the beach to find Midnight and when they helped their Clans journey to the lake. And now that it appears the cat she's just about given her heart to refuses to take her concerns seriously and starts exhibiting some of Tigerstar's traits, I felt almost as bad for her as I did for Leafpool. But she doesn't use that as an excuse to not work with him nonetheless, or at least, she doesn't try to. Not to mention she's pretty bold and daring. She's willing to risk the ire of a Clan by crossing their boundaries just to help them, like she did with ShadowClan when they were having problems with the kittypets. Her determination has always been one of my favorite things about her. Crowfeather – Wow, talk about a character transformation. Throughout this arc, Crowfeather has gone from being an abrasive young apprentice insistent on the Clans taking care of themselves to an honorable warrior willing to put himself in danger for another Clan, at least for the sake of someone he loves. Yes, he probably shouldn't be trying to get with a non-WindClan medicine cat. But at the same time, you can tell these two really love each other given the lengths they're willing to go to just to be able to see one another. And because they love each other so much, it makes their situation all the sadder, at least for me. As I read about their mutual dilemma, I felt awful that they had to face so many obstacles to their relationship, even as I knew it was against the warrior code. And as wrong as I knew it was for them to run away, it did feel understandable and made me feel for them and their situation. But of course, it helps that Crowfeather is far more likable now given how much he's matured. You really feel for this guy. His first love was a non-WindClan she-cat who sacrificed herself to save him, her fellow travelers, and the Tribe of Rushing Water. And when he falls for another cat, not only is she not from WindClan either, she's a medicine cat. This character just has such bad luck when it comes to love. At the same time though, he's willing to admit when he's wrong and accept the consequences of his actions. Brambleclaw and Ashfur – As for the other two lead toms, they were great as well, in their own different ways! It was heartbreaking to read about the relationship between Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight crumble in "Starlight." And while I've always been on Squirrelflight's side, to read about their relationship continue to go downhill in this book was nonetheless tragic. I know they're gonna get together in the end, but to have their relationship fall into such a rut was a real shame. We now know that Brambleclaw and Hawkfrost are visiting Tigerstar in their dreams, and in the Dark Forest no less! And it definitely shows in Brambleclaw's increasingly troubling behavior. I'm curious to read about how he snaps out of it. As for Ashfur, it was pretty surprising to see how much of an upgrade his character has gotten, given he's pretty much been in the background since he first appeared in the series. I was so glad the book didn't simply make him a third wheel in the cliché and often poorly done love triangle. He definitely feels like a more supportive and loving boyfriend (for lack of a better word). He's a smart, strong, loyal, and capable warrior. And there's no doubt he feels and cares deeply for Squirrelflight. But you can also tell that she still longs for Brambleclaw even as she gets closer and closer to Ashfur. Cinderpelt – So how's this for an embarrassing moment? When I first read the prologue, I thought it was Mudclaw we were reading about, given "Starlight" ends with his death. Then when I looked up this book's plot on the "Warriors" wiki – after I read the book – to see if I missed anything, my mind was blown when I learned that it was actually Cinderpelt. And when I thought about it in hindsight, it made total sense! She told Leafpool at the end of the book she knew her time to join StarClan was coming, and I had no idea I was reading about StarClan telling her of her coming death at the very beginning of the book! Usually I can pick up on stuff like that but for some reason it just went completely over my head! That all said, Cinderpelt's death was just an epic punch in the gut of feels to read! I've read about her character ever since she was a little kit. I walked through her early days as an apprentice and wept with her when her future as a warrior was stolen from her. I cheered for her when she found a new purpose as ThunderClan's next medicine cat. I adored her sweet friendship with Firestar. And in this book, I felt her simultaneous frustration toward and concern for Leafpool as though she were her own kit. Not to mention, according to the "Warriors" wiki, the "Twilight" in the title refers to the twilight of Cinderpelt's life, so to speak. All in all, she was such a great character and sacrificed herself in perhaps the best way a medicine cat could. Her death was just utterly tragic and she will be missed! Various Other Characters – As always, Firestar is a fantastic Clan leader! He's not flawless, but he's willing to compromise and do his best with what he has to work with in order for there to be peace. Moreover, he shows great wisdom in choosing Ashfur to be Birchpaw's mentor, and as a father he probably couldn't love his daughters more. It was surprising though to see Onestar undergo a bit of a personality change. I don't know if it's because of his nine-lives ceremony or what, but it was a little jarring. Yet at the same time, it didn't necessarily feel out of character. If anything, you could say the same about Blackstar and Leopardstar, but more on those two later. Onestar knows that WindClan has a tendency to be regarded as the weakest of the Clans, so I totally get his desire to make his Clan strong and great, especially as they begin their new lives here around the lake. But he could've been a bit more gracious to Firestar and ThunderClan. That said, it was great to read about him and WindClan coming to aid ThunderClan in their fight against the badgers. Back to Blackstar and Leopardstar, it was interesting to read about them being willing to accept help from ThunderClan when they're usually portrayed as proud and independent leaders. And as for Mothwing, it's really unfortunate that she doesn't believe in StarClan. Given her dedication to serving her Clan and her extensive knowledge of herbs, she could be one of the greatest medicine cats if only she believed in StarClan. On the bright side, at least she has a great potential apprentice in Willowkit! Overall: This book totally won me over with its characters, story, dilemmas, and emotions. Both romances are well-written, and the characters feel so well-realized and memorable. The early days of the Clans living around the lake may be tumultuous, but it makes for dramatic and engaging reading! And I can't wait to see how it all concludes in "Sunset!"

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. *SPOILERS* I have to say this was one of the saddest books in the 2nd series so far. Squirrelflight is still angry with Brambleclaw. Leafpool has trouble between choosing clan loyalty and loving Crowfeather. I can't remember if they chase off a mother badger in this book or the last. The WindClan leader, Onestar starts acting like a jerk toward ThunderClan. During a gathering he says that ThunderClan is trying to prove that they are stronger or something like that. Leafpool decides to start visit *SPOILERS* I have to say this was one of the saddest books in the 2nd series so far. Squirrelflight is still angry with Brambleclaw. Leafpool has trouble between choosing clan loyalty and loving Crowfeather. I can't remember if they chase off a mother badger in this book or the last. The WindClan leader, Onestar starts acting like a jerk toward ThunderClan. During a gathering he says that ThunderClan is trying to prove that they are stronger or something like that. Leafpool decides to start visiting Crowfeather at the border between their clans. I am sick of these forbidden love stories. I know they love each other but still. Also Tigerclaw is visiting Hawkfrost and Brambleclaw in their dreams. He's telling them how to become leaders and somehow Leafpool visits their dream. Leafpool starts getting scared after one trip to the moonpool after she has a troubling dream and thinks that StarClan is abandoning her because she is breaking her code. Also the stupid Twolegs leaves some chemicals in RiverClan, and two cats die while many others get sick. Leafpool helps Mothwing with her problem. Back to Squirrelflight, she seems to miss her friendship with Brambleclaw even though she denies she cares for him. Also the kittypet living in the barn named Daisy, moves into ThunderClan to protect her kits. Also Sorreltail is pregnant with Brackenfur's kits. One of my favorite cat is going to be a daddy!!! Squirrelflight hears Tawnypelt screaming one day and sees one of the aggressive kittypets attacking her. ThunderClan and ShadowClan attack them warning them to never hurt the warriors again. So Crowfeather asks Leafpool to leave the clans to be with him as a loner. Cinderpelt was spying and tells her no. They fight and Leafpool runs to the Moonpool. Spottedleaf tells her to follow her heart. So Leafpool tells Crowfeather she wanted to leave and they go. Really Spottedleaf?! She is going against your rules! At least say be loyal to your clan! Also I want to mention sweet, sweet, Cinderpelt, dies.😭😢 I won't lie I did shed a few tears. Okay so back on topic Spottedleaf knew that she was going to die so why let pretty much the only one with medical knowledge that will live leave? You had no idea if she would come back. Crowfeather and Leafpool meet Midnight on their journey away from the clan, and tells them that badgers are going to attack ThunderClan. A while earlier WindClan and ThunderClan search for the missing cats with no rewards. Leafpool decides to go back and help her clan. During this chaos of fighting killer badgers Sorreltail's kits are coming. A badger got inside the nursery and kills Cinderpelt. Leafpool was to late, but Cinderpelt said goodbye. Then WindClan comes to the rescue and helps drive out the badger. Sootfur also dies. Then at the end STORMFUR AND BROOKE comes. Then the book ends. I'm sorry if I got details wrong, or their from the wrong book I write these with what I remember.

    This is the 5th book in the second series about the 4 Clans of Cats; Warriors the New Prophecy. Once again it was okay. I am finding myself just wanting to be done with these books so I can move onto something better. I think this book can aptly be described as a teenage soap opera where all of the teenagers are cats. This book deals with the cats settling into their new territories and trying to find a Moonstone so that the medicine cats can communicate with the Star Clan. All the medicine cats This is the 5th book in the second series about the 4 Clans of Cats; Warriors the New Prophecy. Once again it was okay. I am finding myself just wanting to be done with these books so I can move onto something better. I think this book can aptly be described as a teenage soap opera where all of the teenagers are cats. This book deals with the cats settling into their new territories and trying to find a Moonstone so that the medicine cats can communicate with the Star Clan. All the medicine cats are still dreaming of something horrible that will happen to the clan. Most of this story revolves around Leafpaw. Although Brambleclaw, Squirrelflight, and Crowfeather also take center stage at times. As with the last couple books the whole book is spent setting up a major action scene that takes place in the last few chapters of the book; once again a very specific formula is followed in writing this book. If cats could star in a teenage soap opera you would get this book. It's all about who loves who, who is mad at who, who is apprenticed to who, etc. etc The cats are entering their teenage years (I guess) and all of the sudden all of the great characters from the beginning of the series are getting very unreasonable and temperamental. I honestly did not like any of the main characters in this book; they all needed to be scruffed and shook a bit to help them reason better. I am hoping that this degradation of characters in all of the cats is leading to something interesting...but whatever it is leading to it's not happening in this book. Soooo...hopefully something will happen in the 6th (and final) book. Same deal as the last book...the chapters propel you through the novel, there is a little suspense, it is a fast read. Unfortunately I am getting to the point where I just want to be finished with this series. If I didn't already own the last book I would probably just skip it, but alas I own it so I mine as well read it.
