Fitting end to the second series. I like how things were wrapped up into a semi-neat bow with enough dangling threads to keep us wanting the third series. These books are addicting!!

Thumbs up! I'm greedy for warriors and this ends the arc in an awesome way. A great addicting read, with love, action, adventure and suspense, what more could you want? Character's that you become really attached too make this story even more amazing. I find these stories very believable and moving. A troubled tom cat must choose between power and loyalty to his clan and the cat he loves. A very exciting ending, loved the ending - did not know what was going to happen next.

A great installment in the 2nd Warriors series. I was never bored, the pacing was steady and interesting; although the ending had a very rushed feeling. Despite that, it much less predictable than many of the earlier books.

The continueing drama of the intertwined lives of Tigerstar and Firestar and their families is really well-played in this book; and the glimpses of StarClan and the shadowy forest are especially intriguing and satisfying for those of us interested in the Warriors' world.

FINALLY I FINISHED THIS DREADFUL SERIES.
Let me say something The first series (The Original) was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and suits any age but this one!!
It started great as good or even better than the first series and I REALLLY enjoyed the first two books but what about the rest? THEY ARE CRAP not all of them only the 6th and the 3rd were DREADFUL in my opinion and the 4th and 5th were just fillers.
What about this one.
It's the WORST Warriors book EVER
The book is 303 pages First 100 pages Leafpool is

Okay, this was the best Warriors books so far. 4.5 I wish I could give.

It has the edge on Forest of Secrets mostly because I really love the brothers. I still take issue with some of the overly easy characterization the Erins do, which is why I can't give it a five. But the pace was amazing, the intrigue was great and the character arcs were brilliant. I loved this book. It makes me want to jump right into The Power of Three series, even though I've heard that is... not as good. Characters like

A terrific ending to this prophesy ... but I am not sure that Leafpool will be able to count on the outcome to follow blood spilling blood and the lake runnning red. I must admit that Erin Hunter has once again caught me off guard ... and now I will need to move to the third series (The Power of Three). These authors do a masterful job of creating cliffhangers at the end of each book and series. I knew Brambleclaw had it in him ... what a great character. And I am also glad that Squirrelflight c ...more

I liked this one the best of the entire 2nd warriors series. Especially when Firestar is finally forced to move past Graystripe and all the emotions tangled in it. Beautifully done. Also Squirrelflight was awesome as she always was supposed to be. But what's up with Brook and Stormfur? And what new path shall Leafpool follow? Will it allow her to be with Crowfeather? That poor cat has seen so much heartbreak, he deserves something good in his life. Wonder who his father was? Ahh, looked it up an ...more

Overall it was a good book. Basically it's about a clan of cats called "Thunderclan" that had found there new territory. Some conflicts were present in the clan with new comers from outside the clan and joining them. Daisy, a barn cat, joined Thunderclan with her three kittens. Berrykit, one of the kittens wanted to go explore and catch his own prey one day and went off by himself out of the clan. While on his little hunt his tail was caught in a fox trap and was stuck. Some of the warriors came ...more

My 10 year old stepdaughter adores these books, so we listened to one of them in audio format during a long drive this summer. The world is interesting, a world of anthropromorphized cats, with different clans in different wilderness areas (River clan, "Tribes" in the mountains/desert, Thunder clan in the forest, etc.) as well as "kitty pets" that are cats kept by humans (Two Legs), and "rogues" - loner cats without a social community. Each clan or tribe has elected leaders and appointed deputie ...more

Sunset by Erin Hunter

The genre of this book is fiction. The main characters are Brambleclaw, Leafpool, Hawkfrost, Squirrelflight, Stormfur and Brook. They are forest and mountain cats that have adventures, visions and live in four clans (ThunderClan, RiverClan, WindClan and ShadowClan). Some cats seek for power and become terrible assassins. Being careful with other clans' invasions, each clan needs to protect its territory. Firestar, ThunderClan's leader, is not sure if to assign a new deputy

It felt a bit strange, reading this book on kindle instead of paperback. I wondered how I would go without the bright covers drawing me in, but the magic of the writing was more than enough to keep me entranced. I will still buy this book in paperback eventually, as it really is pretty, but I have now read the story.

It has been enjoyable having Brambleclaw as the main character, he comes from a totally different perspective than Firestar, and it was obvious from the beginning of series one where

Whoo hoo!!! 3rd series, here I come! So so so so so so sooooo excited! The 3rd series books' names sound so dark and scary. The Sight. Seriously? Oh! Need to tell something. I'm kinda making my own story of warriors. But it's about my character, Stormpaw(right now). It's called Wildcats: A Storming Star, and I'm on chapter 6. She first was a kittypet named Tilly(or was she? Prolouge) who becomes a WillowClan apprentice along with Flamepaw(Flameheart), Gingerpaw(Gingerheart), Birchpaw(Birchfur), ...more

Very good book. Good for Brambleclam that he killed his Half borther to save his Clan leader and regained trust with Squirellflight and are mates.

The beginning of the book was kind of slow and it was really hard to get into. There wasn't particularly any event that made the book as good as the others. At times, it felt sort of rushed, like the Erin Hunter's just wanted to finish this book. The characters were okay (I really like Leafpool.) the best parts are when Brambleclaw is with Hawkfrost in the Dark Forest. The ending wasn't a shock. It was sort of strange with Brambleclaw turning on his half brother and having "the lake turn red". I ...more
