Meljean's note: This is my 9-year-old daughter's review of this book. We're kind of hard-ass parents, so we're making her write book reviews during the summer (when we let her take a break from math). She's apparently already better at reviewing than I am. :-/

1. Which book did you read?

I read Warriors: The New Prophecy: Midnight

2. Why did you choose this book?

I chose it because all the warrior books that I read in the previous series were very interesting and I wanted to keep reading the books

Alrighty! I finally re-read all the New Prophecy books, with the exception of Moonrise as I don't own a copy and was too lazy to go to the library.
I'm currently re-reading the entire series so I can write new, updated reviews.

So note that this review is for ALL of the New Prophecy books (Midnight-Sunset). Also, another thing. Names change throughout the series as the cats grow up (a sort of Rite of Passage). For the sake of simplicity, I will refer to characters with the names they have in the f

I love the warriors series. But in this one absolutely NOTHING HAPPENED!
It was just like..

and even thought they all new the clans were in trouble, the six cats on the journey were in no apparent hurry to get home.

Well ok, something did happen.
They found midnight.

Este libro me daba un poco de cosilla por si fuera demasiado infantil para mí, pero la verdad es que la historia engancha y se lee en seguida, el libro es muy fácil de leer y nos adentramos en los clanes junto a los gatos mientras cazan y resuelven sus disputas.
El libro es bastante introductorio, podemos conocer a gatos del Clan del trueno y del río , mientras que los otros clanes quedan un poco relegados.
Me ha gustado mucho la personalidad de Zarzoso y E

I felt like this book was set to be a bit of a letdown; after the ending to the first Warriors series, I really don't see how anything could compare. This definitely felt like an introduction, but still kept some of the same aspects and situations as the first series so as not to scare long time readers. There are also more 'travel' scenes, reminiscent of all the camping that goes on in 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'. You know they're all headed towards something, and you can't wait to g ...more

Re-reading this reminds me why this is my least favorite of the Warriors series.

I hate Squirrelpaw. If there were at least some legitimate reason why she was a jerk the whole time then I could at least tolerate her, but there is absolutely no reason for her behavior. I'm sorry if I can't relate or sympathize with a character who yells at everyone for no reason, has no respect for anyone, constantly talks backs, and gets herself into dangerous situations after being warned and then acts like it's

The New Prophecy - and probably all the other series - isn't as good as the original, in my opinion. I still LOVE the books, but if I'm comparing them, the original is the best, and probably always will be. I still found this book really interesting and I really got into it in the second half. I love the balance between dialogue and description and that makes it good fr all ages. You really get to know most characters and really feel for them and know what they're feeling.

I have only read the first 3 books of this series due to that fact that I didn't have the money to get the rest of the books. Soon I'll be starting up again.
Like for my reveiw for the 1st book of the original Warriors series, I'm going to bundle my reveiw to those I've read into one. I love this series so far, only a tiny bit less than the orginal Warriors. If I could have given this 4.5 stars I would have.

EPIC! Yeah, it's time to follow the next generation of warriors! This is the first book of the 2nd arc, The New Prophecy, WARRIORS. Several peaceful moons (6 months) have passed since the last book - The Darkest Hour. Lot's of exciting stuff happens and we learn a lot, as new characters come into this series. It may be strange to have new main characters at first but you quickly get to love them just as much as Firestar and Graystripe. The book alternated between different viewpoints which is go ...more

Creo que una idea general de lo que va el libro ya se encuentra en la sinopsis por eso mejor dejaré unas opiniones. Este primer libro de la segunda saga me tenía nerviosa y emocionada por lo perfecta que es la primera saga. Me va gustado casi tanto como la anterior y se puede comenzar a leer sin leer la primera porque explican lo necesario. Los personajes que más me gustaron son la gata Esquirolina y en solitario Puma.

Hmmmmmmmm..... New main character, and what's this???? Switching off from other cats views?? Wow. Having this been the first time reading a book where different chapters had different view points from different characters, it was a little much to comprehend. However, it was a good read, with a new plot, and later in the future revealing that the next series would come together to make the best plot eva!!!

I have not finished this book but i am almost done so i firstly will give a very brief intro. There is a new prophecy and four cats have been chosen to help save all the cats from this terrible danger. So the cat you see in front of the page is called Brambleclaw. I like Brambleclaw the best because he has almost the exact same personality as me. You won't understand what i am saying unless you know a bit about Warriors. This is the first book there are three more. So my brief summary is: Brambl ...more

This book is about a young warrior named Brambleclaw, along with six other cats, set out on a journey after receiving a sign from their ancestors. He, along with the other cats, face danger along the way of their journey. This book is simply amazing! If you like books about animals in the wild, then this book is just the one for you! Even with the amazing storyline, this book just doesn't have the same spice, for lack of a better word, than the original series. Nonetheless, this book is incredib ...more

Rating clarification 3-1/2 stars.

This is a book that my niece, Anna, said I just had to read. Now both girls have discovered these cat tales, with the youngest, Lily, reading the first Warrior book Into the Wild and they can't get enough of them. I can see why kids who like animals, and especially cats, would love these books. It allows you to get into the head of a cat (what every cat lover wants to learn), learn what their movements and gestures mean, especially those with other cats. It also

Midnight by Erin Hunter is the first book in the second series of the warriors books. In this book, the new main character is Brambleclaw, the son of Tigerstar. He and 3 other cats from each Clan have been chosen by StarClan to save the Clans of the forest. With help from 2 that were not chosen, Squirrelpaw, Firestar's daughter, and Stormfur, Graystripe's son in RiverClan.

My connection to the book is to Crowpaw, the apprentice from WindClan. He always feels angry when Brambleclaw takes charge. J

Es agradable volver a ver a los gatos guerreros, aunque esta vez me han cambiado a todos los principales (lo de siempre, ahora son los hijos de los anteriores XD). Me ha costado bastante aprenderme los nuevos nombres y recordar qué gato es quién, pero ha sido agradable.
La verdad es que tampoco ha sucedido mucho en la historia, ha sido puro viaje la mayor parte del tiempo, para conocer una nueva profecía y un nuevo peligro para los clanes (o no habría historia, claro).

I loved Midnight! I already love the rest of the Warriors series, and this latest installment has certainly lived up to Erin Hunter’s standards. I think it’s good that Hunter has left Firestar’s point of view to the last series and has moved on to such a torn character. The descriptions were fantastic, and I loved that they were cats not people, as usual. I’m so excited to see how this tuners out, and how Brambleclaw will handle this new responsibility. And how will the leaders of the clans take ...more

Ça fait du bien de retrouver les quatre Clans mais cette fois ci de d'autres points de vue.
Une nouvelle prophétie est annoncée et les clans se retrouvent en danger. J'ai adoré suivre les péripéties des élus. J'apprécie beaucoup Nuage d’Écureuil et Griffe de Ronce, j'ai hâte de voir comment ils évolueront au fur et à mesure que la série avance.

I couldn't get into it. I just couldn't. I prefer Firestar over Brambleclaw and to be honest, there isn't any character distinction between the two. Sometimes I forgot I was reading about Brambleclaw and not Firestar.

There was also a problem with POV's. In the middle of the page, it jumped from Brambleclaw's pov to Leafpaw's (Firestar's daughter) pov and it was just confusing.

I didn't really like Squirrelpaw either. She was a bitch.

I loved this book. There is a new prophecy, a great danger will come to the forest. Four cats set off on a quest to listen to what midnight had to tell them. Six cats went to the sun-drown-place, and turns out Midnight was a badger. One cat from each clan met at the new moon to meet in private.

As the six cats went on their journey, danger has started. Twolegs started destroying the forest, taking no notice of the cats who lived there. But don't stop here! More books will

Midnight (The Warriors series)
This book seemed to have a touch of Watership Down about it when I was browsing and that's what caught my interest. It turns out to be very much like Watership Down, but the series wasn't always so. I thought it was the first in a series and it is, but it turns out that it's a sequel series to the original Warriors series. It takes the entire book to get around to what was going on at the beginning of Watership Down - a chosen cat having a vision of the coming destr

¡Atención, puede contener spoilers de la primera saga, si no la has leído y tienes intención de hacerlo no sigas con esto!

En primer lugar debo decir que aunque sean varias sagas, se pueden leer por separado; yo he leído esta y no he leído la anterior y se entiende perfectamente. Esto me parece muy bueno, ya que estoy segura de que cada saga tendrá sus cosas y que no te obliguen a leer seis libros para poder llegar a este está muy bien.

So the book I read for my analysis was Midnight ; The New Prophecy by Erin Hunter , the first book in the second series of Warrior Cats. This book was in the point of view of multiple characters, which is new for the books since they are usually only in the point of view of one character, Firestar (Firepaw, Fireheart, etc.). And not only that, the book is in the point of view of Brambleclaw and Leafpaw, which are in two different places during the book, and they become better characters since th

Hace algún tiempo leí los dos primeros libros de la saga “Los cuatro clanes” y me parecieron de lo más raro y entretenido, era muy divertido estar leyendo aventuras y batallas con gatos, imaginarlo era extraño y placentero.

Hasta ahí todo perfecto. Por alguna razón no seguí leyendo la saga y me brinqué directamente a esta nueva saga “La nueva profecía”, y fue un gran error. Comencé a leerlo y de repente no entendía nada porque seguía ligado a los libros anteriores, y sin querer me spoilé yo sola

He tries to lead them in the direction of the sea but gets lost. Then when they’re in the up walkers territory they get ambushed by rats and Tawnypelt gets injured bad.
