Een spannend en goed doordacht boek! Het verhaal leest vlot en heeft een open einde. Net zoals in de andere twee boeken zijn ook hier Leeuwpoot, Gaaipoot en Hulstpoot de hoofdpersonages. Ook is de cover weer schitterend, en sluit hij prachtig aan bij de andere boeken. Ik kijk al uit naar het volgende deel dat eind juli verschijnt! Dit boek krijgt van mij vier sterren!

Once again, the Erins are starting to lose it. I hate to say this, but this book was a little boring. And also, I didn't like how we spend the entire book trying to solve a problem but we never actually solve it . The forest cats "solution" seems completely implausible and we never actually SOLVE the problem. By the end its basically

I'm not sure why but I am having a harder time enjoying this particular story arc. They are still very well written and the prophecy they are following is intriguing but I'm not loving it as much. Still would recommend it to kids and adults!

This was a book that definitely picked up the pace of the PO3 series as each of Squirrelflight and Brambleclaw's litter begin to embrace, develop, and understand their gifts. However, we learn much about Jaypaw as his curiousity takes him on a dreamquest to weave a tapestry from the tattered dreams he has shared, as well as invaded, with StarClan, the Tribe of Endless Hunting, and the Ancient Cats.

The three of this prophesy all find themselves drawn to the mountains but for different reasons ..

I think it's quite mysterious with all of the many warriors, clans and ancient cats going on. So far some of the cats went on a journey to unite the clans to help the Tribe of Rushing Water. They met up with an old cat who helped rescue some apprentices from dogs.Finally after the long nights and days of walking they reach stoneteller's home and he turns them away. That same night Jaypaw has a dream about the ancient cats; they tell him to give Stoneteller a message. The Clan teach the Tribe the ...more

I was so happy when Purdy was brought into this book even if only for a short time; I just love Purdy.
In this book all the cats that went to the Sundrowned place along with Jaypaw, Hollypaw, Lionpaw and Breezepaw go on a special mission to help some old friends. The secrets of why Stormfur and Brook left the Tribe Of Rushing Waters is revealed.
Meanwhile, Lionpaw is being coaxed away by Tigerstar's evil presence. And Jaypaw is wondering whether or not he should tell his litter mates about the--

Epicness :d
This was defintly not one of the Erins' best books. The whole book was pretty bland and boring, I mean, With the whole Tribe of Rushing Water thing or problem.( What ever you call it.) I think the Tribe is just filled with jerks, escpealy Stoneteller.( But not Brook and Stormfur, they're awesome!) The Tribe of Endless Hunting is just lazy, they basicly said " Ya sorry about that whole thing with the inturders, were to lazy and weak to help you. So ya better move out and try not to find a soulut ...more

The grandchildren of the great Firestar himself, Jaypaw, Lionpaw, and Hollypaw, are entwined into an ancient and mysterious prophecy that Jaypaw alone knows of. He is also interested in the powers that could lie within it and he thinks that he might be able to find some answers in the mountains, which is home to the tribe of rushing water. He believes that some answers may lie in the past with the old cats that ruled the forest long ago, while Lionpaw and Hollypaw are drawn to the mountains for

Dit boek is geweldig!!!

De kaft:
Een prachtige mooie kaft, ik ben blij dat ze elk boek hetzelfde houden. Altijd een kattenhoofd op de voorgrond met daaronder een tafereel uit het boek. De ogen zijn een prachtige groen die al aangeven dat er in dit deel genoeg spanning te vinden zal zijn. Verder ook erg mooi zijn de gouden letters van de serie naam en deel.

Het verhaal:

Warriors: Outcast is the third book in the series Warriors: Power of Three. As the Three continue their training, two cats by the name of Stormfur, and Brook desperately enter ThunderClan. The Tribe of Rushing Water was being threatened by rogue cats, and the Tribe was defenseless. They do not know how to fight, leading them to being vulnerable. Stormier led them into battle relentlessly, but lost many members, thus being blamed for the loss and banished from the tribe. Cats from all clans (exce ...more

Definitely enjoying the mystery and unpredictability of this series. It may be the best Warrior series I have ever read, even better than the original. It seems to be very well thought through. The one thing I am fairly positive of is the parentage of the kits. But which three have the power of the stars and what exactly does that mean?

This particular one felt more like a filler, no truly new information other than that which I had already guessed, the Tribe cats originally came from around the

Outcast (Warriors) is about the three siblings Jaypaw, Hollypaw, and Lionpaw's new found pull to the mountains or the Tribe of Rushing Water. They all have different reasons that they want to head to the mysterious tribe and they possibly might find out more than they ever expected. This book had a great plot and I feel like the author did a great job of creating a suspenseful story line rather than just a couple small problems here and there like the other ones. For once I didn't know what to e ...more

Ok lets see.
This books have some adventure elements that I love from the last Arc in which they travel to the mountains and I like that very much, because it was getting a little predicable with the same old quarrels over territory and pray with between the four clans.

I dont know what to do with Jaypaw. He has such a strong power, an amazing gift that allow him to access to infinite wisdom and I just feel like he waste it in childish matters. He is always arguing with the ancestors instead of l

A few days ago I just got done reading "Outcast" in the Warriors Power of Three series. The series is a fantasy book about the cats of four Clans who live in the wild with their own skills necessary to survive. Every Clan has one Clan Leader, one Deputy, Warriors, one Medicine Cat, Apprentices, and Kits. They must protect their Clan-mates from dangers around their borders. In the Power of Three, three Kits are born from the daughter of the Clan Leader and Deputy of Thunderclan. These kits hold t ...more

I had wondered about the Tribe, and whether they had a bigger part to play in these books. While I felt like their troubles were never fully dealt with, I enjoyed reading about their cats again. Jaypaw finds out more about the connection with them and the lands the Clans now live in, but I wanted to know more about where the new rogues came from as well.

There is definitely more tension building in the novel, a kind of bridging novel if you will. We have been introduced to the new characters and

This book was full of a lot of action and surprises. I rated this book 5 stars because it was really interesting to read and it was really fun to read. This book is a fictional book because it is not real but it could possibly happen because cats could live in the wild. This series was by Erin Hunter which is a group of authors who put this together to makes these books. I love it how the three cats have their own chapter and their event of the story. I would recommend this book and the series t ...more

I have given this book a four because even though the series has definitely started to pick up with this one, I thought the battle could've been a lot bigger and lasted a lot longer.

But for the most part, I really enjoyed this one. The story developed, I had no idea what was going to happen and it was so nice to see how all the Clans came together once more to travel to the mountains.

Jawpaw is as annoying as ever, but I think I'm starting to like him a lot more now. Hollypaw doesn't annoy me bu

For my review I did Warriors: The Power of Three: Outcast. This book is the 3rd in its sub-series and the 15th book overall in the mainstream plot line. The sheer length of this series is one of the reasons I like it so much. There’s never a shortage of books to read so if I’m in a reading mood, this series doesn’t disappoint.
One of my favorite things about these books is the writing style itself. Most of the main characters in these books are cats. So obviously, emotions and intentions must b

This book was verry good. It was about 3 cats. They Jaypaw Lionppaw and Hollypaw. There is a prosiphy about them. "There will be 3 kin of your kin that will hold the power of the stars in their paws," This is what Starclan told firestar. In this book the cats from the tribe of rushing water come to thunderclan and ask for help. The clan sends Brambleclaw jaypaw, lionpaw, hollypaw, Crowfeather, Stormfur, Brook and Tawnypelt to help out. It turns out that other cats have been stealing there pray. ...more
