" As the sick cats curled up in there nest, Jaypaw heard the sound of racing footsteps drawing closer.What now? He picked up sandstorm's scent as she halted by the bramble screen."Leafpool, come quickly!" she gasped."Firestar is ill!!" Thunder clan is suffering a outbreak of green cough and Firestar is ill. What will thunder clan do without there great leader's helps?
The outbreak of green cough expands rapidly and soon enough, two medicine cat alone are not enough that they have to rely on the

Recommends it for: Warriors fans
A little different from the previous Warriors books, it's great to see the authors break some new ground. Some interesting situations and themes. Overall I liked it, although there was one scene that I thought "jumped the shark" and solved a problem in a way that was a little too pat. The book ends in a way that's guaranteed to keep Warriors fans talking until the next one comes out!

This book was about three cats who are in a clan that is one of four. The three cats are part of a prophecy that will save all four clans. One of these cats named jay paw went into these tunnels under the four clans territories and comes out in a different time period. In this time period the cats that live there have no real system of living and there home is being destroyed by humans. There leader was saying that they should leave and jay paw says that they could go to the mountains where the ...more
This book was actualy quite interesting, considering my low expectations. I am not a big fan of the "Power of Three", but this book was better writen and had many interesting plot twists. I would have said it was a good book, but the ending was bad and ruined the overall effect.
This newest entry in the Warriors: Power of Three series is great. A big secret is revealed and some cats become sick. In addition, there is worry that some clans will abandon Star Clan. A good read!
I absolutely love the warriors series. This book will leave you on the edge of your seat as you crave to learn more about the prophecy and the dark secret squirrelflight is hiding.
The story moved along faster than i expected. It was good to finally find out about the ancient cats that once lived by the lake. Sol seems to have disappeared completely from the storyline. Not happy about that. I still feel that needs resolving. The revelation that comes at the end makes the previous parts of the series make more sense. Especially in one of the visions where someone said "the three have returned." All this coming in book #5 makes me think that parts of the story before could h ...more
Before starting this review, I read a few of the other reviews to see if they wee as excited and spun out as I was by this book. Judging by the exclamation marks and capital letters, I felt just like everyone else! (Look, there's an exclamation mark just there) I had my suspicions, but the confirmation and the scene it was revealed in, well! Excellent writing and brilliant use of tension and mystery. So excited for the next book, I should not even be sitting and writing these reviews, I should b ...more

So Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Hollyleaf help StarClan drive out Sol from ShadowClan and restore their faith in their warrior ancestors. I really liked how Erin Hunter incorporated the Three into the pre-Tribe cats. I want to know who Lionblaze and Hollyleaf will be. When greencough was destroying the Clan, it made me really worried, and I really wanted to know if Lionblaze was going to get the catmint. He did, and managed to not kill Heathertail, so congratulations to him, I guess. Now, I really ...more
This was so epic. I think that the whole series has been kind of building up to this book. Hollyleaf and Lionblaze are warriors now, and eventually Jayfeather gets his full medicine cat name! I loved so many parts in the story, especially the part with Tawnypelt's kits and faking a sign from StarClan that eventually came true. And, of course, when Jaypaw went back in time to become Jay's Wing! It was so sad when he had to leave. But the point when everything came down is when the forest fire sta ...more

This was the most sad\shocking\frustrating\but awesome book I ever read!!!!!! I was soo angry when I read about Ashfur's EXTREME EVILNESS in the "forest on fire" scene! I mean, how could he kill innocent cats for being angry at Squirrelflight. What made me sadder than ever was reading the part when Squirrelflight said that Jayfeather, Lionblaze and Ho

Prophecy of the Warriors series - POWER OF THREE(Books in order: THE SIGHT, DARK RIVER, OUTCAST, ECLIPSE, LONG SHADOWS, SUNRISE.): "There will be three, kin of your kin, who hold the power of the stars in their paws."

As doubt rocks the forest, Firestar's three grandchildren are determined to convince the Clans that their faith in StarClan and the warrior code is more important than ever. At the same time, murderous rage lurks in the most unexpected places, and one cat will reveal a

Warriors Long Shadows was my favorite in the Warrior Power of Three series. I like how it answered Eclipse's problem and then gave you a new problem to think about.

This book starts out right after Thunderclan gets back from the gathering when Shadowclan announced that they would no longer be going to the gatherings. Sol has convinced Shadowclan to do this for his own reasons. Tawnypelt brings her kits (who are now apprentices) to stay in Thunderclan until Sol leaves. She says that Sol is trying

This is the fifth book in the Warriors: Power of Three series. It appears to be the third of many series about wild cats, although now there's a series that details the beginning of . With more than 300 pages, this is a great book for older children to start expanding their reading comprehension abilities and challenging themselves with longer books.

I love books that get our girls excited to read and the Warriors did that for our youngest. She is in love with these stories! I like to read whate
It has to be them though! Because in outcast, the Tribe of Endless Hunting was like "You have come" and the prophecy is "There will be three kin of your kin who hold the power of the stars in their paws." So, the prophecy has been fufilled! they must be the three, or all the stuff that has happened in the sight, the dark river, outcast and elicpse will be for nothing, and it won't make ANY sense at all, especially after StarClan has said They are the three and that they would gradually begin to ...more
Thi book is about Jayfeather, Hollyleaf, and Lionblaze. They become warriors. A cat named sol comes and pridict a an eclips, and starclan didnt see it comeing. Shadowclan falls under controle of sol.

“I’d bet a month of dawn patrols those apprentices had something to do with it,” Birchfall meowed. “Why else would they disappear back to ShadowClan without their mother?”
Dustpelt let out a snort of amusement. “I can just picture those three holding Blackstar down until he agreed.”
“There are useful herbs growing near the oak tree by the stream," Flamepaw pointed out "Littlecloud would come for these" his tail curled up in amusement "Then we could pelt Blackfoot with acorns and he'd think they came from StarClan” 17 likes
