I can certainly understand the appeal of the Warriors series. Its massive, well-developed world offers the reader a truly immersive experience. However, it's just not my thing for one simple reason: the characterization sucks on toast.

'Erin Hunter' (whichever of the three authors actually responsible for Eclipse) doesn't let her characters stand on their own, preferring to hold the reader's hand and explain every nuance of conversations and thoughts.

Example, from page 34:
"That was a huge leap!

It's been a while since I've been truly impressed by a Warriors book. The writing style is just on the higher end of "good", and usually the plot and characterization aren't particularly strong. Things have been pretty interesting in PoT, however. The Erins have done a good job of keeping us in the dark.
I think that if I had to choose one thing about Eclipse that I liked best (it's a hard decision), I think I would say that my favorite element was that I actually couldn't guess what would happe

I've been attached to Erin Hunters' warrior cats ever since the first book.I now believe that somewhere,there are clans of cats with leaders who get into fierce wars.Erin Hunter adds enough life and excitement to sweep you off your feet and take right into the forest with the cats.

If I had any problems,it was with trying to picture the landscaping of the area.Although Hunter gives you a map of how the land looks like to both cats and people,you can't always look to the maps every five seconds.Th

Another great Warrior book... :-)

In this book a loner, Sol, shows up and tells Leafpool and Jaypaw a mysterious Omen. A day after that there is a horrible battle, and all four clans are involved. A beloved cat, Squirrelflight, is left with a bad belly injury. Will she survive?

Meanwhile, Starclan is helpless to the horrors that are taking place in reality, as a result one clan has lost faith in them. Only time will tell if they come back.

I have been indifferent about most of the Power of Three series so far. Certainly, it has had its moments, some interesting bursts of creativity (especially concerning Jaypaw's blindness)... but for the most part I find it repeating the same themes that the second series has already slaughtered. There is an ambitious main character that is led astray by Tigerstar (Brambleclaw, Hawkfrost, now Lionblaze), strife between the Clans but few real battles - and those mere skirmishes compared to the epi ...more

I am in love with book and this series. Jawpaw, Lionpaw and Hollypaw are all kin of the leader of Thunderclan, Firestar. These three siblings are very important to the warrior cats but no one knows yet. Jawpaw may be blind but has an amazing ability to track and sent out everything. Lionpaw wants to be e best fighter in the whole forest. Hollypaw, want ps to be the leader of Thunderclan one day. She does her best to stop all fighting if it is necessary. Tehn later in the book Lionpaw, Hollypaw ...more

I don't know if I'm getting bored with the series or if the books are just not as good as they were when they started but I just didn't enjoy this one as much as the others.
Oliver
Amazing. Jaypaw tells the others about there prophocy to have the power of the stars. Suddenly, they learn that WindClan cats have been stealing prey. A big battle starts. Then Sol, the strange rouge tells them that the sun will disappear if they fight, but ThunderClan does not listen. A battle between the four clans start, but stops when the sun fades away. Sol went to ShadowClan and got all of them to believe StarClan is a lie. The cats go off on there own, and Tawnypelt and her kits come to T ...more

The Prophecy weighs heavy on the minds of the three young cats, each interpreting it a different way. All three cats are different despite being siblings, but their loyalty to the Clan and each other can never be doubted. Trouble stirs in the new lands, and former allies will do anything to declare their independence from Firestar's influence. Everything concludes in the only way a Warriors book can, with battle, but who will win?

Some new characters introduced this time around, along with the my

Warriors Eclipse is the fourth book in the Power of Three series. This is a fiction series for teens that takes place in an unknown forest in modern times.

The main characters are Jaypaw, Hollypaw, Lionpaw, and Sol.

In this book a strange cat (Sol) comes to Thunderclan and tells an unusual prophecy. He says that the sun will die out for a short period of time. Of the four, only Jaypaw believes him. Sol leaves to tell the other three clans of the prophecy.

All the clans are fighting. While Windclan

I can't wait to see what will happen next!!!!! My friend (Who also is obsessed with Warriors) and I have been discussing predictions for this book for weeks, especially about Crowfeather, Leafpool, and the kits. Hopefully, this book will confirm those predictions! This is one of the only good things happening in September-- I hope it doesn't let me down!

EDIT

Wow. That's all I can say, and I don't real mean it in a good way. I could have predicted all year and would never, ever, EVER have predict

This is the fourth book in the Warriors: Power of Three series. It appears to be the third of many series about wild cats. 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 whatever they are reading, so we can chat about the stories and di

Sol is a really mysterious cat right now. How did he know the sun would be covered up and how did he know about the Clans and the prophecy? Why is ShadowClan turning their backs on StarClan? This book actually left me with a lot more questions than answers. However, we do know exactly what Lionpaw's powers are now. However, why did Sol not ask what Hollypaw's powers were? Hers are the only powers we do not know much about yet. We can assume it has something to do with the warrior code, because s ...more

Interesting character development for the "three." I like the way that their characters are developing. Hollypaw's obsession with the Warrior Code is pretty much what I'd expected, although it has ripened into something richer than her younger self's dogmatism. Jaypaw is maturing out of his earlier self-pity and thorniness and developing true empathy, although his obsession with the prophecy is worrisome. And Lionpaw - can you say Anakin? He hasn't gone over to the dark side, but he's definitely ...more

I have just started so excuse me if it is short. I like Jaypaw best because he is so strong even though he is blind. He will not show any sign of weakness. I love his connection between the ancient cats and the tribe of endless hunting. He is also very curious and like his littermates he never wants to leave their side. He is such a loyal Thunderclan medicine cat apprentice. I don't know who would be as good as him at doing his job for the clan. I would pick no other cat. So far the clan cats ha ...more

This book was very exciteing. Lionpaw is finding out more about his power. Windclan also invades thunderclan. There is a huge battle. Windclan and riverclan vs thunderclan and shadowclan. Lionpaw almost kills crowfeather. Then a strange cat named sol comes and predicts an eclips.

I can make a text to self connection to this book. In the book Lionpaw Jaypaw and Hollypaw, have to try hard not to let there secret out. This is just like when your friend wants to know a secret but you cant because i

cinderpaw maneges to regain her strength in her injured leg and a starnger named sol warns all clans that the sun will run out. all the cats did not believe him and ignor the warning. windclan and riverclan decide to pull an attack on thunderclan over night (because they were fed up with how thunderclan is so caring and helpful). when the 3 clans were fighting on thunderclan's territory shadow clan helped defent thunderclan. it took over to the next morning and the sun went out and the battle ha ...more

This was the First Warriors book that I ever had ever read.
Although, I didn't understand the beginning until I read the 3rd book... (silly me)
It was very good, and definitely got me hooked to read more Warriors!
Victoria
The 'paws were super annoying. And the introduction of Sol makes no sense. This felt like the shortest read of all the Warrior books thus far. I will have to read the last two just to understand where this is all going.

Like the other warrior books, I loved reading this and it was very addicting and suspenseful. The emotions that Erin Hinter is able to make you go through while reading these books proves hoe captivating they really are. You are sucked into a whole other feline world when you read these, with characters you have come to know and love and some you have come to hate... You go with them as they face problems and enemies as they overcome personal issues etc. This book is quite eventful and we meet a ...more

I've been having a very hard time enjoying the Power of Three series because I spend much of the time being irritated and annoyed with Hollypaw, Lionpaw, and Jaypaw. Though at first I found Lionpaw and Hollypaw more likeable because of Jaypaw's oversensitivity about everything, I now find it the opposite. This is the first book in the Power of Three where I have felt some love and respect for these cats, mostly Jaypaw. Of course it doesn't help that I spend most of the time reading these books w ...more

Rushed it again. The eclipse seemed to be an after thought. Really wishing I had not picked up the first omen book because I would definitely quit if I wasn't wondering how we got there.
