The six cats chosen from the four wild Clans of the forest--ThunderClan, ShadowClan,RiverClan and WindClan--are finally on their way back home!

In the first book of the New Prophecy, Midnight, the new warrior Bramleclaw gets a disturbing dream from StarClan telling him to join up with three other cats and "listen to what midnight tells you."
They travel to the Sun-Drown-Place (the sea) and find "midnight".
Midnight the BADGER!
She gives them a warning that they must follow, or it will mean the qui...more
I love the drama that is in this series! Don't get me wrong there was plenty of drama with Firestars adventures.... But Squirrelflight is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters. Her personality if funny, but she is quick tempered with a retort when needed. She's a lot like me. :-)

I am rewriting this review because the old one was pathetic. I like how the Erins are flip flopping between characters in the rest of their series. It adds a different perspective to the warriors world. :-)

Warriors Moonrise Author: Erin Hunter Genre: Action and adventure
Now that the four chosen cats Brambleclaw, Tawnypelt, Feathertail, Crowpaw along with Stormfur and Squirrelpaw have learned the prophecy of their clans they have to go back the way they came to warn them that great danger is coming. All four clans are going to be destroyed by twolegs if they don't work together and find a new home. All six cats have to make the long journey back home. They want to get back as soon as possible and...more
Another day, another Warriors book review! This one introduced a new lot of cats, although they form a tribe not a clan. Another prophecy is combating the first, and the traveling cats must decide whether or not to help or hurry back to their own clans. There is more traveling, but the action is up on the first novel. The characters are really starting to come into their own, and their interactions become more fun and meaningful.

I liked the alternating between the Clans and the traveling cats. I...more

I just love these books. :) They're consistently reallly good. At least for me.

The 6 cats chosen by Starclan have made it to the sundrown place, met Midnight, and are on the way back home to let the Clans know that they'll have to leave the forest forever. Darn Twolegs. Instead of going back through Twolegplace like they came, they decide to head back through the mountains, where the Tribe cats dwell. Don't want to spoil too much there, but the Tribe cats are in terrible danger, and they have a...more
Я оказалась права, и всю вторую книгу шестерка котов топала домой. И скажу больше — они так и не дотопали оО На пути им встретился клан фанатичных горных котов, которые собирались пожертвовать Ураганчиком ради своего благополучия. А ведь можно было просто попросить! Прям аж злоба берет, зная к чему привел их идиотизм-фанатизм.

Finally finished it! I'm done with Warrior books. The reason why I have gotten so sick of these books is because nothing every changes. Yeah, the cats face a new enemy in each book, but other than that, it gets very boring and repetitive. If the cats were in a new setting in each book, then maybe I would want to read more (like, being captured to live with two-legs --- no forest, no clan). Also, I have always found the cats to be very two-dimensional. I wouldn't be able to tell them apart for th...more
Basic Synopsis: As the journeying cats return to the forest with the answer to the forest's demise, they are caught once again in another prophecy from a tribe of cats living in the mountains who foretell the destiny of one of the journeying cats.

Sad book. I can say that there have only been a handful of books I've ever cried on: Cages, Where the Red Fern Grows, The Last Dog on Earth, and Warriors: #3 Forest of Secrets. Well, it's not entirely sad, but there's a sad part in it when one of the ch...more

Definitely my favorite from the warriors series. I was crying/gasping for air towards the end. Very dramatic book. In short, Brambleclaw, Squirrelpaw, Tawnypelt, Crowpaw, Stormfur and Feathertail find a hidden cave next to a waterfall, which was inhabited by the 'Tribe of Rushing Water', whom have a prophecy to fulfill. Back at home, the cats are being discovered and taken away by animal control. The end is a cliffhanger, (great business tactic) and I just had to buy the next book.
Overall, the b...more
Awesomely awesome!
Carla Barker
This is a story about Stormfur,who has to survive the pain of his sister Feathertail dying. To save them all from Sharptooth, a mountainlion. This book has love in it. It makes you cry to happy, to sad. I love this book. My favorite part was how they saw the Highstone. Their long journey was complete.
This book will make you read it over and over!-Calahan Barker 8 years old. (Start from number one!!!!)

Given that I love the original Warriors series so much, I was convinced I wasn't going to be able to get into New Prophecy. That changed when I learned that this series is told from a different clan cat perspective in each volume. Love the that they explore what's beyond the clan territories. I'm starting the next one this afternoon.

Recommends it for: everyone who's read the first arc! PLEASE READ WARRIORS!!
GOOD STUFF! I'm a big fan of the warriors series, so I'm pretty opinionated when I write about them. Not wanting to give to much away, but really awesome and sad and happy and suspenseful!

Recommends it for: Anyone, its kinda easy but still a great read.
Recommended to Rose by: My sister, Wildfire
Really good and romantic, the charcters really come alive in this book and you can mess around in a RiverClan cat's head, you find out a lot about the other Clans.
This book is a very good book. It has five tribes and I like the Thunder tribe. I like the Thunder tribe because they have a lot of cool personalities.
Amanda Weissman
So good!!! I love Squirrelpaw and she's very energetic like I am!!! Crowpaw is such a grouch but he's getting better. Brambleclaw is amazing and it's really interesting to see him change into such a great warrior. Stormfur is awesome and yeah... And we can't forget Tawnypelt!!! Yeah, totally stubborn sometimes but she's awesome. And then there's Feathertail....

I was BROKEN when Feathertail died!!! She and Squirrelpaw are like the life that's keeping them moving!!! She's getting to know Crowpaw a...more
A great book for any age. Prophecy, adventure, trust, betrayal. It's all here in this second book from The New Prophecy series!
A really great book shows us how everything is great and worth to die for
Another instance of me picking up a book that falls in the midst of a series. I thought it was the sequel to one I'd read before, but it's the second volume of the second series. Oh well. This one's from the Teen section of the library. It involves the destiny of four clans of partly anthropomorphized feral cats. Apparently it's a real hit among the YA/teen set ("The National Bestselling Series") but it's not really marking any new territory - this has been done, and done better, by Tad Williams...more
This book seams very slow at first. The cats meet Midnight a Badger. She is a very friendty badger. She told them to warn the clans that Grave danger is comeing. She also speks cat and believes is Starclan. Midnight tells them to go accross the mountians isnted of the Two leg place. Barly knows something is up there and protests but Midnight Said it was their destany. They meet a tribe in the mountians. The Tribe of Rushing Water. They believed in The Tribe of Endless Hunting insted of Starclan...more
The 2nd book in the New Prophecy series follows the adventure of the 6 cats on their journey home from the quest they all begun in book 1. I love the way the author Erin Hunter jumps right in, once the 1st book of the series is out of the way, she doesn't waste time on tedious explanations that fans of the series would know already. (I have found myself turned off tons of book series for this very reason.) As usual the pace is quick, with something interesting going on every step of the way. All...more
So I didn't review this book once I got it because I updated it on my Goodreads Android App. so Ok I will talk about the book first then my feelings so my friend won't CRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY (Florence + The Machine same way in Girl With One Eye) ok ok enought with my personal life (if it's too personal)Ok that;s it :E
Unlike the first book, half this book had the point of view of Stormfur and a couple of chapters of Feathertail and the other half was the point of view of Leafpaw. So both storie...more

I am on page 196. What has happened in the book so far is that the badger told the clan cats that the quickest way back to the forest which is the clan cats home. Come to fined out later that the badger sent the clan cats through the mountains to fulfill some prophecy.The prophecy was made by a different village of cats called the tribe cats, that live in the mountains. The prophecy relates to a problem that the tribe cat have been having with a mountain lion they call sharp tooth that slaughter...more
Wow, what a lousy summary. I wish I had the power to update that on GoodReads, because that tells you absolutely nothing except that the book's now out in paperback.

Ahem, anyway...

The second series of Warriors books continues here, with the two-sided story of the Clan cats and their latest adventure. The forest is really starting the feel the pinch of the Twoleg invasion, as humans start rolling their construction vehicles in and tearing up trees and generally making life difficult for the cats...more

When I started reading this book It was very interesting. I started to read it and I couldn't stop reading it. I love cats so I love to read cat books. This book was very long and I went right through it. I have never read such a good book than this the author did an amazing job explaining there adventure to a forest to meet this badger named, Midnight. On there journey they had a lot of problems with predators and dangerous climbs up tall mountains. When they got to the badger named Midnight, s...more
This is the second book in the second Warriors series called The New Prophecy. There are 6 books total in the series. This book followed the style of the first book but wasn't as good. Not as much happened; the plot line seemed a bit stuck.

This book begins right where the last book left off. Brambleclaw and crew are trying to make their way home from the ocean. Leafpaw and the Thunderclaw are trying to figure out why the Twolegs have started destroying their forest. That is basically the whole s...more

I chose this book because it is the second book of The New Prophecy arc. This time, the plot follows more closely to Stormfur(one of the six journeying cats)as they journey to go back home. They pass through the mountains hoping to take a shortcut, when they run into a tribe of wildcats known as the Tribe of Rushing Water, who have their own prophecy to fulfill...and believe Stormfur is the cat to fulfill it. They keep him prisoner in hopes that he can kill Sharptooth(a mountain lion that has be...more
