    The six cats chosen from the four wild Clans of the forest--ThunderClan, ShadowClan,RiverClan and WindClan--are finally on their way back home! In the first book of the New Prophecy, Midnight, the new warrior Bramleclaw gets a disturbing dream from StarClan telling him to join up with three other cats and "listen to what midnight tells you."

In the first book of the New Prophecy, Midnight, the new warrior Bramleclaw gets a disturbing dream from StarClan telling him to join up with three other cats and "listen to what midnight tells you." They travel to the Sun-Drown-Place (the sea) and find "midnight". Midnight the BADGER! She gives them a warning that they must follow, or it will mean the quick death of every cat in every clan! So now, in the second book of the series, the cats are on their way home again, but this time with a heavier burden on their shoulders than before. Halfway home, they encounter a fierce mountain Tribe--the Tribe of Rushing Water, and they have a prophecy of their own: "A silver cat will come to save us all." Lucky for them, but unlcuky for the Clan cats--Stormfur is a silver cat, and the Tribe insists on keeping him prisoner until he can defeat Sharptooth, a evil mountain lion! Will rescue Stormfur? Meanwhile, in the forest waaaaay back home, medicine cat apprentice Leafpool is seeing the destruction of all the clans around her. Then she gets kiddnapped by Twolegs! If you want to find out what happens, read this book! It doesn't matter if you are already a Warroir fan, or never heard of this book before, you WILL LOVE IT! I really fell in love with this book beucase it NEVER got slow and it was full of action! Yippeee!!

    I love the drama that is in this series! Don't get me wrong there was plenty of drama with Firestars adventures.... But Squirrelflight is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters. Her personality if funny, but she is quick tempered with a retort when needed. She's a lot like me. :-) I am rewriting this review because the old one was pathetic. I like how the Erins are flip flopping between characters in the rest of their series. It adds a different perspective to the warriors world. :-) Th I love the drama that is in this series!

    I loved this series when I was younger, so I’ve been enjoying going back and reading through them again. This set definitely isn’t my favorite though, I’ve found that quite a few of the characters irritate me, and I find the plot to be quite lacking in this one especially. Still love this series though!

    The 6 cats are on their way to fullfill the phrophecy as explained in the previous book. They discover that Midnight isn't what they thought it was and besides that they meet a new tribe that is in great danger. Danger is lurking ahead, a sacrifice or more has to be made and though decisions has to be taken. This is another book in the Warrior Cats - series, but for now it's my least favorit. Allthough it reads well, it's a bit repetitive and ongoing. There were a few tense moments, but still... The 6 cats are on their way to fullfill the phrophecy as explained in the previous book.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. 4.5 stars! I really appreciated having this book largely take place from Feathertail and Stormfur's perspectives. We rarely get narrators from outside of Thunderclan, so this was a nice treat. I also still enjoy the switching from the perspectives of the cats on the journey to the ones back in the forest. That being said, I do wish that the romantic Crowpaw/Feathertail relationship didn't exist. I don't think it adds much to the story and it blossoms way too quickly to feel authentic. 4.5 stars!

    A whole lot of stuff happened in this book, but Stormfur being one of the MCs really decreased my rating! I definitely think I'm too old to fully appreciate this book, and even the nostalgia of years ago can't redeem them. They'll always stay favourites, but I can see they have flaws. Mostly flaws in their emotions and their insta-love :p Can't wait to get to new stories I haven't read before.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. But it seems, even though I've read them before, I cannot remember it at all. It was still fun to read though, as it was like I was reading it for the first time again. This one was certainly different - the introduction of a new group of cats The Tribe of Rushing Water.

But it seems, even though I've read them before, I cannot remember it at all. It was still fun to read though, as it was like I was reading it for the first time again. This one was certainly different - the introduction of a new group of cats The Tribe of Rushing Water. They are desperate but they're not dangerous cats, they just want rid of Sharptooth. And I could have sworn Brook or some other tribe cat went back with them because Stormfur was starting to fall in love with her. I can't help think Feathertail's death was an answer for hers and Crowpaw's love because they wouldn't be able to see each other once they went home (to their new home, not the one they are in throughout the first series). All the same, and it was sad. But it was bad how they didn't even look or think about the other cats fur, they just automatically took Stormfur as the cat who was going to save them. I'm pretty sure Feathertail and the others would know what colour their own fur is. What's good and makes you press on is that there's cliffhangers at the end of nearly every chapter, and it's crucial how the story jumps from different cats pov's (especially adding in Stormfurs). I can't help feeling that the dream that Stormfur got from his mother Silverstream, was a really weak storyline to have, to make him go back to the tribe. I mean they wasted all that time trying to get away and when he gets a dream from StarClan, he admits that they may need him and go back. I supposed there wouldn't have been much of a storyline if that just had happened. I supposed there wouldn't have been much of a storyline if StarClan had just told all the cats what would happen to the forest, instead of making 4 (turned out to be 6) walk miles to talking to a badger; a cats natural enemy, near the sea. Still, they are great books and I'm sure every book or movie has got a plot that could easily be turned in to 2 pages or something. If the new tribe hadn't of been introduced I'm pretty sure this book, and only this one, would have been boring. They were already on a mission when they came in to another one, and now it's time to go home. I am dying to read the next book because I really cannot remember what happens even though I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. I feel the characters are really hard to remember, I still probably could not name all the cats who went on the journey. Stormfur, Squirrelpaw, Tawnypaw, Bramblepaw, Feathertail and Crowpaw. Well, maybe I can (and I didn't even need to look at the book), but yeah. The introduction of the new kittypets was interesting, I wonder where they will all end up. I'm dying to hear about Sasha and what she has to say as well, being cooped up where Leafpaw, Mistyfoot, Cloudtail and Brightheart are all being kept. At least Sorreltail will be able to go back and tell Firestar what happened, as long as she wasn't caught (which I don't think she was because she would be in the same place as Leafpaw, unless there are more of the cages in another room or something). I love all the different cats languages and it's fun picking up what they're saying. I've noticed how the kittypets use language like humans do in real life, they know what cages are even though there's yet to be a group of cats who actually know the word "human". They know their own species so why not ours? Anyway, I can't think of much else to write because it was mainly about travelling but I must say that they keep me going.

Erin reminded me how harsh she can be in this one. Once again we see the hardship of the cats' lives in the wild - starvation, sickness, predators, humans, and conflict with other Clans. The threat of the Twolegs (humans) added a sense of direness to the story that I know we'll see more of. I can't wait to see how things get resolved! (view spoiler)[And I neeeed to know what happened to Leafpaw!! My poor baby! Also, Feathertail's death hit me really hard. I was starting to get worried when the battle with Sharptooth (the mountain lion) approached, but to be honest I didn't expect to lose one of the main four cats of the prophecy. I loved her, but I'm also sad for when Graystripe finds out his daughter died *cries* (hide spoiler)]

Here, in this 2nd series I have to deal with a painful collection of characters who make me want to rip my hair out & put a bullet in my head. (Not really, but it's still pretty bad.) Warning! This will be long, ranting, & possibly full of spoilers. Don't read if you haven't read yet, and don't bash my opinions! so! "moonrise " book 2 of "warriors: the new prohecy." It sucked. But before I get in to just why I though it sucked, let me tell you a few things I enjoyed about this novel. The length is good. Nice size for kids. The idea is solid. And epic quest with the stakes higher than ever before. In the 1st series it was just Simply war the clans, mostly fueled by Tigerstar's insane need for dominance over all the clans. Now it's not just tha. It's tensions between the clans PLUS all these new outside threats. Poisoned food, twolegs destroying the forest, cats going missing. It's good. It has decent pacing here too. Much better than book 1. Plus we are shown a band new culture, a tribe of strange cats, so very different from our beloved clans. There are great themes of loyalty, courage, and destiny. Leafpaw is ok, not great. But she's sweet & caring & just a little naive. She tolerable. The adventures are good, sharptooth was pretty cool. I also have great memories of these books from my childhood. I used to pretend I was a clan cat. :) I wanted to be in Riverclan. These few things saved it from only 1 star. You know, With all that stuff, "moonrise" and the rest of the series should be very entertaining for me. But it's not. It's painful & boring. Honestly, I skimmed through the last half of it, struggling to finish. & why? Why did I hate this so damned much? The characters! The fucking characters!!!!!!! They make or break a book, and this cast doesn't just break it. They shattered it into little tiny bite sized bits than exploded it with a million atom bombs. Then gathered up all the dust & debris from that explosion & blew it up again with a blast from the death star. Now, I addressed my 3 most despised characters in the last book. Squirrelpaw, Brambleclaw, & Crowpaw. Squirrelpaw is a bitch 4 no reason. Brambleclaw is to perfect & the leader of the chosen cats for no reason. & Crowpaw is also a bitch for no freaking reason! & now stormfur has joined the ranks. See, I kinda liked him at first. He was strong & loyal. But then I got inside the bastard's head. His flaw? He's a fucking hypocrite! See he bitches at his sister for falling for crow paw, yes? (Don't understand what that sweet cat sees in him. Their personalities just don't mix.) well he has no fucking right to do so when with in the 1st few chapters it's established that he has a crush on Squirrelpaw. This isn't so bad, but he kept going on about her. Saying just how great she is. All pretty & strong & how any cat would be luck to have her. No! She's a bitch. A stuck up bitch! He can't keep going on like that then turn right around & tell off Feathertail! Then he meets brook. A cat from a tribe that lives in the mountains. He falls in insta love with this cat & starts really embracing their ways. Then acts all offended when his friends question his loyalty to the clans. He also talks about how difficult it is being half clan! acting like he just wants to serve riverclan & protect his beloved sister. Then he goes & chose to go back & help the crazy cats who tried to keep him hostage. Endangering all his friends (the cats who hold the fate of their friends & families in their paws) lives in the process. He's just awful. I wanted to jump in the pages & kick some sense in him! Insta love to.... He knew brook for like 5 days. Why was he so broken hearted when she & all her tribe members showed their true colors? He barely knew them! Feathertail too. She's sweet yeah, but flat as cardboard. I couldn't feel bad when she bite the dust. (Honestly, I think she was just killed off so we wouldn't have to deal with all the forbidden love stuff until much later in the series.) Moth wing..... I can't like a character who is that deliberately stupid, always choosing 2 betray her clan even after she's told what she's doing is against the code. Look, I could go on, but I don't see much point. Most of the characters are just plain terrible! I keep hoping that maybe the books will be as fun as I remember from my childhood but so far "the new prophecy" has seriously let me down. & I have to get through them all because I promised my sister & myself that I'd re read them all, so I'll keep reading. At least I'll get to right some long ranting reviews out of it. (glad she doesn't read my reviews, because she loves Erin hunters books.) Recommended for warriors fans who want to read every single book, but that's about it.

Someone stole Greystripe, one of the best characters and it don't look like he's coming back.

I think my favorite part of this book is seeing Leafpaw come of age. She seems to be really maturing before our eyes and is seeing the destruction of the forest firsthand. The events happening in the forest- disappearing cats, the tractors and construction, and the uneasiness provide a fun and intriguing storyline to follow. I'll be honest- this book 'Moonrise,' was my least favorite Warriors book growing up... as well as 'The New Prophecy' arc in general- let's see how books 3-6 are and if I will still hold the same beliefs I had about 10 years ago when I first read this series.

    If I could use one word to describe this book, it's desperation. The Clans are desperate for food as Twolegs destroy their land, and the traveling cats of the New Prophecy are desperate to get home to help their Clans. Another wonderful read, with a heartbreaking last few chapters. If I could use one word to describe this book, it's desperation.

Now they're hurrying back as fast as they can, desperate to save their fellow Clanmates from the coming destruction. But when they come across a Tribe of mountain cats, the latter singles Stormfur out as their promised savior. The RiverClan warrior is torn between wanting to help them and getting back to his Clan. Whether he stays or leaves, however, both choices mean trouble. The real question is, which one will bring more devastation? Story/Writing: Once again, MAN I wish I'd read this book when it first came out 'cause, geez, it still holds up! Once more, I unfortunately knew some of the things that would happen in this book, even if I didn't know the details. And as I was reading it, I was sort of waiting for certain things to happen. Then again, I guess that's just as good an experience as reading it with no foreknowledge at all, 'cause that sense of expectation carried some sense of dread. That all said, this book – as a second volume should – ups the intensity and the intrigue from the first one! I spent an entire day reading this and I didn't wanna stop! I mean, yes, I was obligated to read it since this series has caught me hook-line and sinker. And it's surprisingly tiring reading a book in that way. But I HAD to see what happens and man am I glad I did! For one thing, I love how it keeps alternating between what's happening in the mountains and what's happening in the forest. It really keeps the tension going 'cause you wanna find out what happens to both. And given that this book has left me on a dramatic cliffhanger, I am more than eager to read the next one! Characters: Just as the drama is upped in this second volume of the "New Prophecy" arc, so have the characters! The characters from the first book continue to grow, and we get to meet some new and interesting characters in the Tribe of Rushing Water. First off, it was really cool to get to them, 'cause I know that this is the tribe where the Early Settlers came from, fifty years before (according to my estimates)! And it's easy to see why. Even though they have different names for things, and do some things differently from the forest Clans, they have a lot in common. Plus, the leader is still called Stoneteller. And once again, I really felt the desperation and the way these characters were either driven to get home or driven to survive. Stormfur – I gotta admit, I was surprised to see that most of this book is told from Stormfur's point of view. I honestly saw him as a bit of a side-character at first, so it was really interesting to see the story unfold through his eyes (mostly). I like that he and Brambleclaw are friends, given they have plenty in common, not the least of which having their loyalties questioned pretty much all their lives. That said, Stormfur is very much his own character. It's not a surprise that Graystripe is his father, given he shares a lot of his traits. He may not be as much of a wisecracker, but Stormfur is definitely a loyal warrior and friend. It also felt heavy reading about how he knew he had to go back to the Clans but still wanted to help these cats, even though they'd betrayed him. Plus, probably my favorite scenes are the ones he shares with his mother, Silverstream! I thought it was sad that he didn't recognize her at first. I mean, I know she died giving birth to them, but her children must know that. I also thought that he was gonna stay with the Tribe after his sister died, but I like that he still cares about his main mission of helping the Clans. Feathertail – Some of the chapters are told from Feathertail's point of view, and she was just as cool and interesting as her brother, I thought. It was a bit sad though knowing that she was gonna die, I just didn't know how. She loves her brother and desires to see the good in Crowpaw. She's very compassionate and motherly, particularly toward Tawnypelt. And even though I disagree with her about Clan boundaries fading, you can't help but admire her optimism. That said, she's just as brave as her brother, considering she leads the mission (at least in part) of rescuing her brother from the Tribe. And while I did know she was gonna die, it was still gut-wrenching to read about how she sacrifices herself to save all the cats from Sharptooth. I did NOT know, however, that she, rather than Stormfur, was the cat of the prophecy from the Tribe of Endless Hunting. That was a really cool twist! Leafpaw – Once again, the point of view that's focused on in the chapters set in the forest is Leafpaw's, and for good reason. Though young, she's clearly gifted and was meant to be a medicine cat. She's also wise for her age, not to mention smart (which is different from being wise) – since she figures out on her own that Hawkfrost and Mothwing are Tigerstar's kits by Sasha. She continues to have faith even when the faith of those around her fails, though it does help that she knows about the six cats who'd gone to receive StarClan's message, even though she still bears the burden of having to keep that a secret. That said, I liked that, given her young age, she was still a bit impulsive when it came to some of her decisions, even if she had good intentions – such as going to the border of RiverClan to receive fishing lessons from Mothwing, or attempting to go to WindClan and speak to Tallstar all by herself, with only Sorreltail to accompany her. But still, my heart was pounding when she got caught in the Twoleg trap in the end! I hope she gets out early on in the next book! Brambleclaw and Squirrelpaw – Good to see that these two have grown closer since the first book! And rightly so. While we never read from Brambleclaw's point of view in this book, it's clear that he's still the team's leader, if unofficially. He's willing to make tough decisions yet also negotiate, preferring to only use violence as a last resort. And even though they come from different cultures, he respects the Tribe of Rushing Water and their way of life. He certainly stands in stark contrast to his half-brother Hawkfrost and the latter's desire to take over ThunderClan. Goes to show that he doesn't have to walk in Tigerstar's pawsteps simply because he's his son. Squirrelpaw is still her lively and cheerful self, but she's also grown up quite a bit since she set out on this journey. I dare say she now has enough experience to be made a warrior, which I expect will happen in the next book. And even if her plan to kill Sharptooth ultimately didn't work, at least not as it should've, you gotta admit it was a pretty clever one, along with her idea for the Clan cats to disguise themselves with mud coverings when they go to rescue Stormfur. Stoneteller and Brook – Let me start this one off by saying I am a bit embarrassed now that I know these two are not father and daughter as I once thought they'd be. Regardless, I really liked these two, and the whole Tribe as well! It was cool to see how much their way of life has changed since the events in the "Dawn of the Clans" arc, yet also keep some traditions from that time, such as sharing their food with each other. You can tell that Stoneteller is a wise and experienced leader, and yeah, while he and the Tribe do kind of imprison Stormfur, I like that they still aren't made the bad guys. They're just desperate to be rid of Sharptooth. And given how bad the latter is when the Clan cats first encounter him, even if you don't agree with the Tribe's actions, they're completely understandable. I also really liked Brook and how quickly she connected with Stormfur. When I first read about her taking down the hawk who'd just caught a mouse, that was really cool and fun to imagine! Not to mention efficient, since the Tribe gets the hawk as well as the mouse. It's also pretty clear and obvious that even though the Tribe somewhat betrayed Stormfur, she still really likes him. I hope they eventually become mates! Various Other Characters – Like I said, the whole Tribe was likable despite wanting to keep Stormfur for themselves. They might even take their beliefs more seriously than most Clan cats do. Speaking of whom, it was just utterly heartbreaking reading about the Clans suffering when the Twolegs begin destroying the forest. They starve to the point where they literally become skin and bones, and I can't help but wonder how they're going to make the journey to their new home at all. I know they ultimately will, but still. It's just as heartbreaking to read about them losing their faith in StarClan, especially Firestar! He'll always be the greatest leader in the history of the Clans in my mind, but it's still awful to read about him bearing so many burdens and so much trouble, and being able to do next to nothing about it all except watch his Clan suffer. Not to mention Hawkfrost seems to be eager to follow in his father's pawsteps, even if Hawkfrost himself doesn't know it yet. He says he wants to learn from Tigerstar's mistakes, yet he's not willing to give up his unethical methods. I still liked Mothwing though, and how she still has much to learn about the warrior code and being a medicine cat, even though she's a full-grown adult cat. In short, I loved all the characters in this! Overall: This was just a spectacular second volume in the "New Prophecy" arc! The characters continue to get better, and the new characters we meet are really likable. The story is strong, with enough tension and intrigue and danger and action to keep an avid reader like myself reading for hours! I'm so happy that I've rediscovered this series and I can't wait to read the rest of it!

    **Warning: this text may contain spoilers** Depression when Feathertail died. I loved meeting the Tribe of Rushing Water and leaning about their customs, it's pretty cool that they found a whole different way of cat living. **Warning: this text may contain spoilers** Depression when Feathertail died.

All four clans are going to be destroyed by twolegs if they don't work together and find a new home. All six cats have to make the long journey back home. They want to get back as soon as possible and Warriors Moonrise Author: Erin Hunter Genre: Action and adventure Now that the four chosen cats Brambleclaw, Tawnypelt, Feathertail, Crowpaw along with Stormfur and Squirrelpaw have learned the prophecy of their clans they have to go back the way they came to warn them that great danger is coming. All four clans are going to be destroyed by twolegs if they don't work together and find a new home. All six cats have to make the long journey back home. They want to get back as soon as possible and they choose to take the mountain path since Midnight told them it was the quickest way to get back. There are so many problems that they encounter on their way. Climbing up rocks, walking in steep narrow pathways, they encounter an eagle, a waterfall that sweeps them off the ground dragging them to the bottom of it and a tribe of cats. Each day that passes Tawnypelt gets worse and worse. The tribe helps her and her friends but they seem to know something that they don't. They won't tell them but whatever it is it is big. Meanwhile back at home all the clans except for Riverclan are suffering. They are slowly starving. All food is scarce either they got frightened by twolegs or were killed when their forest homes were torn up. Everything is bad. Twolegs keep destroying the forest and Firestar seems to be the only clan leader willing to work together. What will they do? Will the six cats on their journey back home make it in time before their clans get destroyed? My favorite character had to be Brambleclaw. He took lead when everyone else wouldn't or didn't try to. He is a brave and loyal cat that only wants to do what it takes to help his clan. He makes the plans and choices but before actually doing them he asks for everyone's opinions. He stays calm when they are in bad situations and works everything out to see what his best choices are. My favorite part was when Leafpaw crossed the Windclan border and went into the territory to try to talk to Tallstar Windclan's leader about working together. She knew they had problems with twolegs as well so she thought they would listen. She only did it because she thought she could help her clan and Windclan. My least favorite part was when Purdy a cat outside the clan couldn't join them in the six cats mission anymore. Even though he got them lost a lot on their way to their old destination he eventually got them there and now he wasn't going to be part of their mission getting back. So he had to go back to his own home. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure, action and cats. All the cats in the story are facing problems. Arguments happen and choices are made. If you really like books with a lot of description then you'll like this book. It's like your seeing it from a whole new perspective of cats.

    "Warriors: Moonrise" by Erin Hunter Personal Response: I feel that the book was written very well. The author captures the reader in a series of events and switches groups often throughout chapters. To me the book was a great read and I recommend that anyone read it.

The author captures the reader in a series of events and switches groups often throughout chapters. To me the book was a great read and I recommend that anyone read it. Plot: Some events that take place in the book are as follows. A group of warriors wander through their forest and then through a city to find a prophet of a sort. They reach this prophet to learn that she's actually one of their most rivaled species, a badger. She tells the warriors the whole prophecy and helps them make their way back to the forest but tells them to take a short-cut through the mountains. Once into the mountains there was no going back, but they went anyways. Halfway through the mountains they encounter a tribe of warriors. The tribe tells them to stay and rest for as long as they need to and then tell them a prophecy of their own. Unbelieving the warriors leave the tribe but come back to save them in their time of need. Once finished with their dilly-dallying, they finally went underway to go back to the forest, without their fallen comrade. On the other side of the forest, Leafpaw and her companion are inside another clans territory and are being chased by some of their warriors. On the border of their clan the pursuers turn away and go back grumbling. Back at camp hunger has stricken the clans because of the the giant creatures that roam the forest destroying everything. Trying to figure out why this is happening and why cats are disappearing, Leafpaw sets out to a settlement of two legged creatures and is captured. Characterization: Stormfur, Brambleclaw, Feathertail, Tawnypelt, Leafpaw, Squirrelpaw, Firestar, Cinderpelt, Crowpaw. Firestar is the clan leader of Thunderclan and is the father of Squirrelpaw and Leafpaw. Stormfur and Feathertail are siblings on a journey to fulfill a prophecy along with four others. Brambleclaw is a Thunderclan apprentice sent on a journey to fulfill a prophecy given by Starclan, along with Tawnypelt, Squirrelpaw, and Crowpaw. Cinderpelt is the medicine cat for Thunderclan, and is training Leafpaw to take her place. Setting: The story takes place in a forested area somewhere. The two-legs, humans, are destroying the forest to make their cities and towns using heavy machinery. Theme: The author presents the theme of always do what is right in your heart and not what others tell you. The theme is basically saying don't fall in to peer pressure and know when to say "I have to do this, with or without the others." I recommend this book to an avid reader of a really long series.
