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".

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. :-)

Este segundo libro me ha gustado más, ya que podemos ver como la travesía de nuestros gatos no es todo camino de rosas, se van encontrando con peligros y adversidades que tendrán que aprender a superar juntos, la más curiosa es cuando aparece un nueva profecía de una tribu de las montañas, donde uno de los gatos tendrá que afrontar su destino.

Leafpool gets very annoying constantly wittering about whether to tell her father about where the questing cats have gone. Someone stole Greystripe, one of the best characters and it don't look like he's coming back. This volume left me proper grumpy and out of sorts - and the the Tribe of Rushing Water had their own concept of xenophobia. Tsk!

I wasn't able to finish it because it had to be returned to the library. Ugh. Everyone hates it when that has to happen. :'(
This is crap. I hate these characters so freaking much! I just..... Yeah, I just hate them! I miss firestars bravery. I miss Greystripe's snarky sidekick role. I miss dustplet & sandstorm picking on Firestar then slowly growing to like him. I miss yellowfang.

Here, in this 2nd series I have to deal with a painful collection of characters who make me want to rip my hair out & put a bullet in my head. (Not really, but it's still pretty bad.)

Warning! This will be long, ranting, & possi

"Warriors: Moonrise" by Erin Hunter

Personal Response: I feel that the book was written very well. The author captures the reader in a series of events and switches groups often throughout chapters. To me the book was a great read and I recommend that anyone read it.

Plot: Some events that take place in the book are as follows. A group of warriors wander through their forest and then through a city to find a prophet of a sort. They reach this prophet to learn that she's actually one of their most

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

I liked Warriors Moonrise because it has a new style of problems that arise than the older books. The traveling cats have to face a lot of obstacles that they need to solve with teamwork and cooperation rather than get physical and hurt someone. The story is well told as the cats in the forest have to deal with problems that they could not prepare for while the traveling cats strive to help them as soon as they can.

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

I enjoyed Moonrise. However, it didn’t really live up to my expectations for this series. I found I could relate to Stormfur often; he was the strong but silent type. I also loved the overlapping religions that these cats faced and the two prophecies. But I must say, I think a whole book about their journey in the mountains only to lose a cat and waste time really wasn’t necessary. I’m looking forward more to the next book, when they finally reach the Clans again. I recommend this book to fans o ...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

This was a great book because it introduced totally new cats with a new perspective that seemed rather like an offshoot of the Clan and in a totally different setting. But the ending was awful--because of the sacrifice made--I was so upset because I felt like this was an unncessary death, like it was caused just so someone on the quest died to make the whole journey more "dangerous". I know after reading many of these books that many character I like--such as Bluestar--died and I should be used ...more

Moonrise, the second installment in the second arc of the Warrior Cats, follows two different paths, Leafpaw, ThunderClan's medicine cat apprentice, and also Firestar daughter, as the forest where the four clans—ThunderClan, RiverClan, WindClan, and ShadowClan—live is gradually being destroyed, and the journey of the six cats—Bramblepaw, Squirrelpaw, Tawnypelt, Stormfur, Feathertail and Crowpaw—as they journey home, with obstacles.
With a sad ending, for both paths, the Warrior Cats never get old

This book is about six cats traveling back home after meeting Midnight, a badger. On the way, they meet the Tribe of Rushing Water. They have seemed to take a fascination to Stormfur,but he doesn't know why. In the forest, the ThunderClan camp is being torn apart, as well as the other Clans, camps. This book is amazing, and I would like to read the next book of this series. If you like cats and survival books, then this is definitely for you!

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!!!!)

Con más acción que el primero, con más peligro, me gustó más aunque ese final no fue como que me dejará con ganas de leer el siguiente, pero ahí lo tengo, así que lo leeré.

Yes… I once again allowed five stars for a book in this sequence of novels. A book about clans of cats, notwithstanding. Sometimes I must question my mental stability. Anyway, this book was nice and all, perhaps a bit flat, but it made sense for it to be so, so who cares.

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.
