I've completed the 4th book in Erin Hunter's "Warrior: The New Prophecy" series, "Starlight". My regular readers will remember that I'm working my way through this young adult series that depicts the lives of an entire culture of cats living in the wild. This is the second set of six books about these cats and I am happy to report this book returns to the roots of what makes these books great.

I really enjoyed the first 6 "Warriors" books and felt the series stood complete at the end of that firs

This book wasn't one of my favorites in the Warriors series, I don't like the way Brambleclaw is acting right now. He keeps worrying about Tigerstar and all that stuff.... It's getting a little bit annoying when the Tigerstar thing keeps being brought up. But, it was still a good book, just compared to the others it was a little slow.

Basic synopsis: Now that the clans have found their new home, tensions again rise as territory is sorted out, death of a leader brings rise to uncertainty in all clans, and they must find a way to contact Starclan before it's too late. A new prophecy arises: Before there is peace, blood will spill blood and the lake will run red.

More character development! PLEASE! Leafpaw and Brambleclaw are the cats this book follows and Leafpaw...falls in love. Well...sort of. There isn't much development betw

Wonderful!

I think that this continuation of Warriors was great. The alternating point of views were perfect, character development and characterization were incredible, and the overall plotline was exciting. I love the constant feeling f anticipation that resides in all Warriors books. You know something exciting and usually unexpected is going to happen at the end, but you're not sure what. This is where the alternating point of views come into play. Cat A thinks Cat B is good and trustworthy,

This is probably one of the better books in the second arc of this series, as much for the story itself as for the promise it leaves for the rest of the arc. Now that we have some cats with a lot of really interesting history with eachother, the authors are able to do a better job with creating interpersonal (intercatural?) tension that's believable and intriguing. Added to that, we have a new setting, which we are exploring with the characters. Everything is new, but still has a weight behind i ...more

"Starlight" is the fourth installment of the "Warriors: The New Prophecy" series. Now, a warning to any "Warriors" fans, this book isn't like the other books that you are used to. This one is slower and isn't as action packed, but either way it was a good book.
Now, for the story:
When the clans move into their new lake territory, more than one cat is facing difficulties. Brambleclaw is having trouble whether to trust his half brother Hawkfrost, or the love of his life, Squirrelflight, who would n

The main characters in the story would be Brambleclaw, Leafpaw, Squirrelfight, Crowfeather and Tawnypelt. Four of the six cats are back home with their clans. Stormfur stayed in the tribe because of his love for the she-cat Brook and Feathertail died when trying to save Crowpaw from Sharptooth.

Only two books to go in the New Prophecy set, and I'm already bummed about eventually coming to the end! I'm so attached to these cats, I really hope that all of them make an appearance in the Power of Three set as well.

It's tough to talk about why I loved this book so much without getting into spoilers, so I'll just gloss over the details. The Clans work at establishing their new territories, and the politics really start to explode as old rivalries return. All of the cats struggle with this a

Things are starting to heat up again, and Tigerstar's influence may not be completely gone from the lives of the Clans. Every cat is simply trying to get on with their lives and explore their new home, but tensions are rising, alliances are forming, and cats with ambition are trying to claw their way to the top. It really is an interesting idea, especially the tension between Squirrelflight and Brambleclaw. Both are misunderstand each other at every turn, just like young humans. I can't wait to ...more

This book is awesome! I was in the edge of my seat the whole time, exited to see what troubles will come with the four clans new homes!

It was really good but it was a little slow. I don't want Squirrelflight and Brambleclaw fighting all the time which takes away a little bit of the excitement.
I'm still getting used to the fact that they have new territories and am really anxious to figure out what before there is peace, blood will spill blood and the lake will run red.

Hawkfrost.... At first we were introduced to him as evil, like his father but unlike his half siblings and sister Mothwing. He now seems different and like a g

This book countinues the endless story of the cats of the clans. Though it was not the best I've read in the series, I was again not disappointed. She always meets my expectations. The only thing I don't like as much in these books, is that every book a cat has to die. I suppose it happens to keep the story moving along, but sometimes I want to keep my eyes dry and hear about their lives. But, perhaps that would get boring. I'm just hoping that in the next few books, something besides death will ...more

It was amazing! The four clans finally got to there new home! A little bit after, TallStar, the WindClan leader, died. Before he died, TallStar changed his deputy from Mudclaw to Onewhisker. Mudclaw was very very angry about that. Later, with Hawkfrost, he did a rebellion with ShadowClan warriors against Onewhisker. Onewhisker wasn't able to receive his nine lives and leader name, because they couldn't find a way to communicate with StarClan. He made is deputy Ashfoot, who was CrowFeather's moth ...more

The wild cat Clans have finally arrived in their “new” homes, and must now struggle to establish territories, rebuild old boundaries, and learn the hidden dangers of the unfamiliar world. Most importantly they have to find a replacement for Moonstone, the place they used to go to deeply communicate with StarClan. While the medicine cats look for a new Moonstone the warriors need to keep a look out for more then one cat that's harboring evil plans that could lead to violence and darkness. The ca ...more

Erin Hunter's Warriors the New Prophecy: Starlight is part 4 of a great series revolving around three main characters. Brambleclaw, the dark tabby who is haunted by his father's evil motives of the past, is having many arguments with Squirrelflight, a ginger she-cat whom he cares about deeply, about his half-brother's loyalty towards his Clan. Squirrelflight's sister, Leafpaw, a light brown tabby she-cat, is a medicine cat and is beginning to wonder if she made the right decision by becoming one ...more

Well the book was actually 3.5 but 4 stars is a bit more than it deserves.
After the dreadful 3rd book on the second series doubts started to overcome me and they kept telling me that the second series really sucks -_-
The first book in my opinion was amazing and the second was very good but it was nothing comparing to the original series and the 3rd book was horrible just like I said before. But what about this one?!
So all the cats arrived to their new place and they are trying to settle down

I am still reading and I will add more when I am further. So far they left the forest because twolegs (humans) where destroying the forest. They destroyed it to build a new thunderpath (road). Then the clans had to prepare to leave because all the prey was leaving or dieting and rabbits where being poisoned and cats kept dieing. Then they where on their way to highstones but stoped by ravenpaws for the night. The next morning they slept too late and by knight fall close to mother mouth they spot ...more

This is the 4th book in the second series about the 4 Clans of Cats; Warriors the New Prophecy. It was an okay book but moved really slow, without much of significance happening.

This book is definitely a transition book, leading to a main event and not an adventure story itself. The book basically details how the cats deal with setting up the territories in their new home. All of the medicine cats are having dreams about the lake filling with blood. There is a lot of political maneuvering betwee
