Fireheart could hear a roaring around him, like wind in tall trees. The acrid stench of the Thunderpath stung his nostrils, together with a new smell, sharper and more terrifying. Fire!

Book Two of WARRIORS continues Fireheart's quest to be a true warrior, when he finds new danger lurking in the woods as the chill of winter sets in.

WindClan is missing, and hostilities bet

"(He) felt lost and alone without his old friend, though he barely recognized him anymore. He wondered if they could ever be friends again."

—Fire and Ice, P. 218

This second installment in the Warriors series is, to me, even more gripping and compelling than the first volume. Whichever author of the triumvirate that is Erin Hunter wrote this novel tackled some deep and complex interpersonal issues, including loyalty to oneself and one's people, friendship and the terribly painful barbed obstac

I enjoy how this author writes her books, she doesn't recap everything that happened in previous books. And Book 2: Fire and Ice started up right where book 1 left off. I enjoy reading the Warrior books and at the moment can't seem put them down. :-)

I thought this book was exciting because they brought one of the enemy Clans back home after they were driven out. Then Firehearts first apprentice was hit by a "monster" (car) and it was a trap for the clan leader Bluestar, and Fireheart can't convince Bluestar that it was a trap. I would reccomend this book to people who like to read books that follow another like its repetative you know whats going to happen.

This book is the best ever(besides twiight), not just this book the whole series. The suspence and interesting events amaze me. If your not sure whether or not to read this book because it's about cats read it!! They act like humans except the hunting. If your not going to read it because of the fighting read it. It's not as violent as you think. WARNING: THESE BOOKS ARE ADDICTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't pick up this book with out having time to read the whole series

Cute kittens are cute. But still there are also lots of serious and somber moments. But never the less if you like cats this an fun read.

And it's always fun to read about kittens having fun, meow meow :D

Another installment of the Warriors series sees Fireheart facing new struggles, testing both his ties to ThunderClan and his kittypet roots. Although he has been accepted into ThunderClan, it becomes more and more obvious that he wasn't born into this world, and may never fully embrace it. Spotting his sister during training one day rekindles memories long forgotten, and may cause him to lose his place and respect of the Clan.

I enjoyed how this book brought the two different loyalty issues to li

Fire and Ice is a children's fantasy novel, the second book in the Warriors series, written by Kate Cary under the pen name of Erin Hunter. The plot centers around Fireheart and Graystripe, newly promoted warriors of ThunderClan, which is one of the four groups of feral cats living in the wilderness. Fireheart learns that his best friend Graystripe has fallen in love with Silverstream, a warrior from RiverClan, even though it is against the cats' "warrior code".

Warriors Fire and Ice is the secret to Warriors Into The Wild. In this book, Firepaw, or should i say Fireheart is a full fledged warrior. As his first mission, him and Graystripe,recently Graypaw, get chosen to find the missing WindClan. Once the Clan gets safely returned, Graystripe meets a young she cat who he falls in love with. The problem is, she is in RiverClan.

The connection i have with this book is hard to make. I guess it would be wanting to have unity between all races. Bluestar, the

Simplemente la amo! En esta segunda parte tenemos a nuestro protagonista felino mas maduro, con su nuevo nombre y responsabilidades. La aparicion de Princesa le da otro giro a la historia y tambien conocemos mas de los otros clanes. Me parecio mas emocionante que la anterior.

Now, firepaw is becoming a warrior, but the danger has not past yet, there are dark plans going on in the clans. fall has passed and the is sickness going on in thunder clan, food is sacred and running low, not only facing the treacherous clans but facing betrayal from his own clan, but he could only do so little since he is still not trusted. What can he do?

Une nouvelle fois j’ai adoré me replonger dans l’univers de mon Chat Roux préféré qui a d’ailleurs beaucoup évolué depuis le premier tome.

J’ai adoré Princesse qui malheureusement n’apparait pas assez à mon goût qui mais qui je pense sera plus présente dans les prochains tomes. Je l’espère en tout cas.
Petit Nuage est excellent, j’ai hâte de voir ce chaton évoluer au fil des livres !

Dans ce tome on en apprend plus sur les différents clans et j’ai beaucoup aimé suivre l’évolution des relations qu’

I stand by the fact that I don't like the first two books in the warriors series all that much. Most people are like "But dose ones are best!" And I say "No. Not at all." Because the Erins, lets face it, were still very new to the group writing. I can't imagine how difficult it is to write a novel with four people, four different personalities with different voices and styles and views on the characters, but I can say it takes time to master writing as ONE person and FOUR people would be a night ...more

No sería la primera vez que la segunda parte de un libro que, en su primera entrega, generaba un ambiente más bien cálido y esperanzador para el lector, se convierte en una sombra que oscurece la primera página del libro y no se levanta incluso luego de finalizar la historia.

Tampoco sería la primera vez que vemos elementos que inmediatamente reconocemos como "plot twists" y/o conflictos originales de otra historia -es muy difícil que esto no ocurra-.

Pero lo que no es usual es que, habiendo ocu

By Erin Hunter
ePub Editors, July 2007

This book is part 2 in a series of books about cats who live in the wild in clans. These cats hunt for prey every day, but if one of the three other clans hunts in their territory, this will lead to a fight. Sometimes they hunt in each other’s territories because they can’t find enough prey in their own territory to feed their clan, but sometimes they do it just to wipe out a rival clan. In the last book, Shadow Clan wi

Warriors: Fire and Ice tells about four clans of cats. The author is Erin Hunter. The Genre is fantasy and it has action in it too. I thought this book was very good; it was interesting too. The book was interesting because it was about cats.
Fireheart is the main character of the story; he faces many problems throughout the story. Bluestar is leader of the Thunderclan. Graystripe is Fireheart’s best friend. Tigerclaw is an enemy to Fireheart. The setting is in a forest divided into four areas. T

I originally read this book in 2011.

Essentially, this is a story about suspicious loyalties: Graystripe is in love with a RiverClan she-cat, and may well bring the wrath of both Clans down upon him; not least of all, he may well sacrifice his best friend in the process. RiverClan and ShadowClan seem to have formed a secret alliance, and if so, what does it mean for the other two Clans?

This is Graystripe’s story; specifically Graystripe and Silverstream’s story. It’s sweet on one hand, and annoy

This is the second book in the Warriors series. It appears to be the first series of many about wild cats. With more than 300 pages, this is a great book for 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 this series did that for our youngest. She is in love with this series! I like to read whatever they are reading, so we can chat about the stories and discuss the characters and

Warriors is an amazing series. It follows a cat named Fireheart, living in the wild with a gang of wild cats. 4 gangs to be excact. Windclan, Thunderclan, Riverclan, and Shadowclan. It is sorta hard to explain, but tust me it is an astounding book. Firepaw has been made a warrior Fireheart, and Graypaw has become Graystripe. Tigerclaw is still as suspicous as ever, and Fireheart is wary.
Micheline (Lunar Rainbows Reviews)
The 2nd book in the Warriors series picks up precisely at the point the 1st one left of, and from the the story just keeps getting more and more intense. The four clans are in a very volatile place during the whole book, and the reader can easily feel FireHeart's confusion as to who he can trust. Not only are the four clans at odds, putting everyone at risk, but there is danger much closer to home for our hero, as he continues to struggle to earn the respect of some in his tribe. I have to say t ...more

I still like it, even after reading it for the bajillianth time. haha...
The first series of these books is pure gold- the characters, the plots, the themes, everything! The second book series and the 3rd are okay (Dawn drives me crazy though) and the 4th one... well the further they go the more trouble the author(s) seem to have making up new ideas lets just say. Still, all the serieses are quite good, but the first is by far the best.
Lots of things happen in Fire and Ice, two of the most promi

Well, It's been awhile since I've read this but, like all the other Warriors books I found this to be a very exciting read. This is the second book out of the original Warriors arc, and and it continues from where the last ends. I don't think I'll get too detailed into the plot or else I'll be writing for ages, but it's definitely not just your typical kids book about cats. It's so detailed and the plot is very cleverly thought out. As you progress through the books, you become really attached t ...more

This books really follows on almost immediately from the first book - in this case a good thing as it shows that you are watching the life unfold of the main character and how he develops from a house pet (kittypet) to a faithful and powerful warrior - again the number of paws used in the book must be some sort of record but after a while you start to ignore the names and see the characters. Considering that Erin Hunter is actually a collective of writers it is interesting to see how the story l ...more

Just a continuation of the 1st book. It's a very popular series for young readers, but the appeal doesn't cross over to adults (or at least not to me). After reading the 2nd book I'm finding myself curious to know what happens to some of the cat characters. But I'm a bit disturbed by their ethics. (I know they are cats, but millions of young children are reading these books. It's obvious the cats have an ethical system, but individual cats - even the heroes - don't seem bothered by lying or snea ...more

This series has just continued to grow:) The first book had a good ending with enough to lead the reader on to want to read the next book. And the plot continues to grow as right now it is a matter of FIGURING OUT exactly what the plot is. There is a forbidden love between a riverclan cat who happens to be the daughter of Riverlcaln's Leader, Crookedstar, and Fireheart's best friend, Graystripe. And, of course, having an apprentice to add to the pile is beginning to wear our brave protagonist d ...more
