    This is the first book in the Skyclan and the Stranger series of manga/graphic novels, which details the experiences of Skyclan when they meet a kittypet (view spoiler)[who ends up becoming the rogue Sol (hide spoiler)] . This is an entertaining story and gives the reader more background about Leafstar's experiences as both a mother and a clan leader. As a working mother, I can empathize with her torn loyalties and angst about trying to be great at both.

As a working mother, I can empathize with her torn loyalties and angst about trying to be great at both. The plot of the series shows how the clan matures and comes together when tragedy strikes. It also continues exploring the clan's struggles to maintain unity with daylight warriors (half warrior, half kittypet) as part of the clan. It's a fast read and the illustrations are very good. Our youngest really enjoyed reading this book and we are both looking forward to reading the rest of the Warriors Manga graphic novels.

    Well, it was nice to go back to SkyClan and find out what happened after the last story. Also, it's nice to know where Sol came from. I got a little confused reading about him in some of the other books and not knowing his back story. Should be interesting to see what happens next.

    It's nice to not have to say goodbye to SkyClan just yet. And the surprise appearance of an old character makes it even more interesting. Hmmm. It's nice to not have to say goodbye to SkyClan just yet. And the surprise appearance of an old character makes it even more interesting. Hmmm.

    I have been meaning to read the Warrior books for a great deal of time, but when I saw these Graphic Novels in my local Library I had to pick them up and give them a try. This being the first in a series I was not disappointed. The story revolves around the Clan and its pregnant leader and the trouble that comes for her and her Clan and how she goes about protecting herself and them.

Cannot wait to jump into the next book I borrowed from the Library.

And while the Clan is still in its early years, their leader, Leafstar, couldn't be happier with how things are going. But she's also expecting kits of her own, and she can't help but wonder if she can handle being both a mother and a Clan leader. It isn't long before both roles are put to the test when Leafstar and her kits find themselves in danger. She's determined to escape with them, whether her Clanmates help her or not.

But she's also expecting kits of her own, and she can't help but wonder if she can handle being both a mother and a Clan leader. It isn't long before both roles are put to the test when Leafstar and her kits find themselves in danger. She's determined to escape with them, whether her Clanmates help her or not. But little does the SkyClan leader know that help will come from an unexpected source. Story/Writing: Man, how I've been looking forward to reading this graphic novel trilogy! Of course, unlike the last one I read, "Ravenpaw's Path," I won't be reading all three of this trilogy's volumes immediately after the one before, since I'm reading the series in chronological order. I'm assuming though that this takes place about a year after "SkyClan's Destiny" and around the same time as "Starlight." Anyway, why have I been looking forward to this? Well, it's the origin story for a cat I'm predicting will become one of my favorite villains in this series: Sol. I know that he plays a huge role in the "Power of Three" arc, which was published before this. And I imagine many readers wanted to know where this shady character came from. This is the story that sets the record straight! I like though that the authors don't spoil anything in the author's note at the beginning of this volume. At least, nothing that happens later, chronologically. They do give a quick recap of the events in "Firestar's Quest" and "SkyClan's Destiny." I also like that they pointed out how, even though they're undoubtedly committed to the warrior code, none of the cats who founded the new SkyClan have grown up in a Clan themselves. They don't have the wisdom of any Clanborn elders, just the warrior code and the new traditions they've forged for themselves. Beyond that, all they have to rely on is their faith in StarClan and what they've learned from Firestar and Sandstorm. And I predict that they're gonna have to rely on both a LOT in the near future. Artwork: Once again, I just ADORE this art style! The cats do look kinda similar, but at the same time they appear distinct enough to remind you of who they are. Of course, it helps if you've read titles featuring these characters before so you already know what they look like. Sol especially looks distinct from all the other cats. I guess that's partly because of his tortoiseshell-like coloring, which in real life is very rare for tom cats. Speaking of coloring, I got the whole trilogy as a pack, which was released a few months ago in color. And man, does it make a difference! The art style is plenty good on its own but adding color to it just makes it so much more vibrant and memorable. Leafstar – Usually in these graphic novel trilogies, at least in this series, the main character is usually the one that gets the most development. And that's also the case here with Leafstar. Having read about her in "Firestar's Quest" and "SkyClan's Destiny," she's already one of my favorite leaders of any of the Clans. She's always displayed leadership qualities ever since she was first introduced. Yet she also has periods of self-doubt, such as here when she wonders if she can raise her kits and lead SkyClan at the same time. Probably my favorite thing about her though is her determination. She may doubt herself sometimes, but she's always willing to give it her all nonetheless. Various Other Characters – I've always really liked the relationship between Leafstar and Billystorm (He's so sweet!), I guess partly because it feels distinct from other relationships in this series, from what I've read so far anyway. In a way, they remind me of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Leafstar is a wise leader of a great and growing Clan, while Billystorm came from more humble origins as a daylight-warrior. That said, it's clear that they love each other and would do anything for the other. I was also intrigued by what the apprentices were doing that they didn't want their Clanmates to know. And when we find out, it reminded me of when Firestar (then Fireheart) found Cloudtail (then Cloudpaw) taking food from a Twoleg. They do the same thing here. I also thought it was a nice detail about how Leafstar is dismayed when her kits start opening their eyes while they're trapped in the house, 'cause she doesn't want them to think they're kittypets. And then of course, we've got Sol. What I found really interesting was that, at first, he appears so unassuming, even somewhat likable. He doesn't even reveal that his name is Sol until the end, since his Twoleg always calls him Harry. But besides that, he's curious as to why Leafstar would prefer to live in a Clan rather than as a kittypet. We've had that from other cats before, but something about the way he's intrigued by it feels a bit more off. Maybe that's partly because whenever he speaks I hear the voice of Littlefinger from "Game of Thrones." Overall: I thought this was a very interesting set-up and beginning for the origin story of a character of critical importance later on. Not to mention, it felt great to get back to SkyClan after finishing "SkyClan's Destiny." Can't wait to read the next two volumes!

    The first of the Warrior series, written by Dan Jolley and illustrated by James L. Barry, is a great fantasy book that sets of the beginning of a series on a wonderful note. This book is most appropriate for grades first through fourth as there are some words that might challenge young readers. There are no rewards for this book, although it is a very well-known children/young adult book series. The book start with Leafstar and her clan overlooking the young ones who still need to mature.

This book is most appropriate for grades first through fourth as there are some words that might challenge young readers. There are no rewards for this book, although it is a very well-known children/young adult book series. The book start with Leafstar and her clan overlooking the young ones who still need to mature. When roaming the woods Leafstar sees the young kittens being fed by an older woman. Leafstar is disgusted, as they are supposed to hunt themselves. Leafstar eventually has her babies, but the older woman takes them and then she is too. She manages to escape thanks to the older woman’s house cat-Henry. Henry then comes back to their home area called Skyclan and declares that his real name is Sol. This a fantastic book for young readers and is a great next step for young readers who are trying to get into more sophisticated reading. The multiple different characters and locations can also help transform the kids’ memory. The characters are portrayed by cats, which can be extremely beneficial to kids as it can encourage them to keep on reading as many young kids are starting to become extremely interested in cats. It would be a little more beneficial to have the pictures in color, but having it in just black and white gets them used to what normal pages will look like once they get to chapter book. Like many other graphic novels, the pictures help allow ELL kids grasp a better understanding of the story. One activity that can be done is having the kids write a similar story, but about one of their pets that they have at home. A second activity can be doing a think/pair/share with the kids and having a dialog about whether Leafstar was right for getting mad at the kittens for taking food from the old woman.

    This was a great graphic novel in the Warriors series.

Warriors may be advertised as a children's book series, but really the topics covered are serious, oftentimes what adults are encountering in their challenges. I appreciate the depth that this book covered, even though it is illustrated and could be easily and happily read by an 8 year old. Leafstar's role as mother and clan leader is explored in a very tactful way in this book. She is shown as brave and being capable of fulfilling both roles, even when challenges arise. In a lot of ways, I found myself liking this character more because of this graphic novel series, and this book in particular. She became "real" in a sense, because we got to really look into her mind.

    I first read the second book in this series a while back-because I didn't have one or three! I finally fixed that this holiday, so I decided to read them all in order. I love Warriors so much, and it's fun to see them in cartoon/manga form. THe art is cute and I love the expressions on each cat and how they change. There is something very human about them! I love the Skyclan group, and the subtle differences between them and the Warriors series I first knew and loved. Four stars!

    I'll admit, I didn't really like this book starting out, but I found myself invested as I kept reading. It's very simple and not very well-written (and though I feel rude to say it, the art isn't anything to feel wonder about either), but I still ended up surprisingly engaged. Sol was an interesting character, even if I wanted his story to be a little better written, and I enjoyed seeing all the different relationships in the clan. 3.5 stars, rounded up.

    It’s been a hot minute since I read SkyClan’s Destiny, so I’d mostly forgotten who everyone is. I remembered Leafstar, who is pregnant at the beginning and gives birth in this book! (The kittens are very cute.) I remember really liking this story when I was younger, and it looks like nothing has changed!

    Cute manga about loyalty and being torn between your dedication to your family or to your job. Leafstar may be a cat, but her trials and tribulations aren't that different from those of a two-leg single mom.

    Full of loyalty, prophecies, mysteries, claws, and codes. A cat’s eye view of the world written astoundingly. Hidden stories trapped in between every book. The most legitimate series of the year.
