This book was AMAZING! I absolutely loved it - it's definitely my favourite of the field guides. It's interesting and full of great, varied information. It covers loads of different things that I didn't already know and is generally really, really interesting to read. I love the mini-stories in the field guides and can regularly go back to read them in my free time rather than a long book. I also find the pictures in the field guides GREAT and the quality of them is excellent.

This book is really cool! It tells you background information on all 4 Clans as well as other cats and animals too. I especially liked the part where it showed all the herbs the medicine cats use, and I like how the book was written as if you were a cat touring the forest. Only problem is it doesn't go into the other clans as much as ThunderClan.

This was a very interesting and informative guide to the warriors books and really explained a lot of things. If you've read the warriors series, this would definitely be a good read for you. However, if you haven't or you haven't made it through The New Prophecy series, wait until you have because there are tons of spoilers.

Wow! I LOVED this book--it told me all I didn't know about the Warriors series--various myths and battle moves.

I love the effect that there were different stories that were told by various cats.

Read only if you've read the first two series of Warriors!

This is pretty good, actually.
Nice and informative, although there are a few mistakes.
But every book has mistakes, correct?

Secrets of the Clans is book that gives you stories not told in the Warrior Cats books. It is set throughout Warrior Cats and Warriors: The New Prophecy. So, only read this book if you have read those series.

I found this interesting and fun. I especially loved the short stories from other cats (such as Yellowfang and Braveheart) as you found out things you could have never found out in the novels and if you did it wouldn't have very much detail.

There were also brief summaries of the other cats

перевод

Первый котовоенный филдгайд в русском издании. Красивое дополнение к книгам первых двух циклов с картиночками и пояснениями относительно некоторых моментов из книг. Истории о котах, о Звездных предках, кошачьей иерархии, даже есть разделы с основными лечебными травками и боевыми приемами. Рай для любителей котиков Хантер.

Я получила долю удовольствия от этого издания, но оно показалось слишком уж детским. Да-да, помню, котовоены – для среднего школьного. И все же — эти попытки вовлечь чита

This book was really good, but I think that it changed its topic too often. Although it changed topic too often, this book really helped me understand the first series. I'm only 10, and I don't follow story lines too well, but this book helped a lot. I've only read Warriors 1-6, Firestar's Quest, and Bluestar's Propfecy. But I'm about to start reading The New Prophecy, I'm just hoping not to much is different.

This is another Warriors Field Guides by the group of women who use the pseudonym Erin Hunter. The narratives were interesting, but they were very scattered and all over the place in time. It didn't really make a lot of sense, and it seemed to me that it comprised bits of narrative that just never made it to one of the books in the various series.

Still, our youngest is determined to read every book in the Warriors Universe and I plan to read them right along with her. The stories are entertaini

I'm glad I was able to get some inside information about the books, but I don't think it's worth the money.

I recommend this to every cat lover and good or long book reader. I think it's a good book to read.

It was a nice book and refresher, but it is a little inaccurate after reading some of the later books.

Easy and enjoyable read. The stories are narrated by different cats, and that gives them lively casual style, and each narrator has its own unmistakable voice. I loved the humor, like Sandstorm's line to Dappletail "Don’t you have an apprentice to torment?" Most stories just retell the events of books from point of view of certain cats, but some of them are real gems, like Yellowfang's and Barley's backstories. I also liked legends about Gtreat Clans of the past.

I liked this book because it gave better descriptions of the clans camps and some individual cats feeling of their clans. It helps you become less biased in my opinion. This book has the warior cat myths, history, and lots more. One of the things I found interesting was what herbs did and some stories about StarClan. If you have not read the first series warrior books before this, this book would be a spoiler.

At first books like this were really really boring. But as I read more and more warrior books, the more I loved these books. Once I found this book, I had to have it! It showed me the warrior code, the herbs and battle moves. I fell in love with it and made a goal to memorize the herbs and their purposes. Like, cobwebs for bleeding, and borage for fever and queens. Easy! Highly recommend this book!
