This is your last warning!!!!

Now that Tigerclaw has been banished, Thunderclan attempts to repair the clan knowing that he is cast out but may still be lurking in the forest. Since Fireheart is the new deputy of the clan, he needs to step it up in order to fulfill his responsibilities as well as help the clan rebuild from the attack of the rogue...more

Yes, yes, I know, another five-stars on a Warriors book. Well, this one deserves it. It picks up immediately at the end of book three (Forest of Secrets), and goes through the toughest time when ThunderClan is in fear. Once again, the end leaves you shocked and reaching for the next one. Don't they all?
fireheart finds his nephew geting food from twolegs. one day he gets stolen from the forest. Fireheart is devistated until one day ravenpaw tells fireheart where he is. fireheart will do anything to save his beloved nephew.

in this series, warriors by Erin hunter is mainly about a kitty pet joining a clan. Previously on the third book Tiger claw, Thunder clan's deputy almost killed Blue star, their leader in order to gain more power and the gift of nine lives. Fortunately Fire Heart, the kittypet saved Blue star and kicked Tiger Claw out of the clan into the wild. Blue star was furious. In the fourth book Rising Storm Blue star was still mad and upset about trusting Tiger Claw and that he will betray his own clan f...more
This book is very interesting. Fireheart has become deputy of Thunderclan after driveing out the fourmer deputy Tigerclaw. Bluestripe becomes very sick (meantly) and starts not honoring Starclan. Fireheart also finds that Cloudpaw is going to Twoleg nests to get food. One day when he is doing that the Twolegs capture him and take him away. Fireheart has to worry about many things like Greystripe and Silverstrim. Also Tigerclaw is out in the forest wateing for the chance to hurt Fireheart some h...more

Intense, that is what I saw in this book. It seemed that around every corner a cliff-hanger was waiting. How about when Fireheart was rescuing Cloudpaw along with Sandstorm and Ravenpaw and a Windclan patrol attacked them. Or maybe when Tigerclaw and his rogues attacked Fireheart in the forest shadows. The biggest cliff-hange was at the end when Tigerclaw appears as leader of Shadowclan at the gathering. Although, this book doess posses a good deal of emotion especially the scene in the fire whe...more

I think this book is really exciting because I like this series (Warrior series) because it is about cats (and I love cats!). This book is mainly about a hot summer and everything is getting dry and is starting to become a fire hazard. These books have a perspective of a cat named Fireheart who lives in ThunderClan. I would recommend this book to others because I truly love this series and to read again and again! (FYI: This is my second time reading this series that should tell you how good it...more


I am now finished with this marvelous book "Warriors: Rising Storm." It is quite fantastic and I encourage any one who is reading this message to pick it up and open it before their eyes. I warn you though, don't even think about doing so without having first read the 3 books before it. I also think you should know that it is a lot different than the others and can hold you in a tight anticipating grip for a very long time...

At this point in a franchise I expect the books to get repetitive and boring. Whilst certainly some can claim that the surroundings are repetitive, I found it relieving to see characters returning to the same places. It meant that I too was familiar with these places and less time had to be spent on the descriptions. Rising Storm shows us the life of Thunderclan after Tigerclaw has been outed as a traitor. The clan is distraught, none more so than their leader Bluestar. She is a hollow shell of...more

This was an amazing book. Absolutely amazing. Like the previous books in the series, it was a perfect blend of adventure, fantasy, suspense, survival, and friendship. There were many surprises as always, along with extremely happy and sad parts. SPOILERS AHEAD! I got misty-eyed when Yellowfang died. She was an amazing character, and her last moments were so touching. I know that Cinderpelt will be great as medicine cat. She's grown so wise and strong, yet remained her perky and teasing old self....more

"Rising Storm" is the fourth book in the Warriors series by Erin Hunter. The Warriors books are about a clan of cats who live in the forest. In this installment, Fireheart is now the deputy of ThunderClan and is still dealing with issues from some of his clanmates resulting from the fact that he was once a kittypet-not clanborn.

ThunderClan still faces danger from its former deputy, Tigerclaw. On top of that, Bluestar, the clan leader is not herself after Tigerclaw's betrayal, leving Fireheart to...more
Argh what an ending! I simply had to rush down to the library and hire the next! As with the others in this series, I obviously loved this one. The writing always feels fresh and not overwhelming. The characters are lovable, understandable, relatable. Of course there are the bad guys, but the rest of the Warriors are awesome!

Fire will save the clan has been the tagline since the first book, but fire could also destroy all they know and take away cats they love. How can they move on from this?

**SPOILERS AHEAD** "REVIEW" IS SIMPLY A REMINDER TO MYSELF. I always find it hard to review books I love, anyway, sooo...


Such a touching story, and very eventful. Cloudpaw is kidnapped by Twolegs after accepting their food, a fire rages through the forrest, Riverclan gives Thunderclan shelter, Yellowfang endures a tragic end, Bluestar loses all faith in Starclan and refuses to go to a Gathering, and...more

I read the first of the Warriors series (Into the Wild) with a group of advanced 4th graders, and as I expected - they became hooked. So, I headed to a local bookstore and stocked up on the next 12 books of the series, knowing that they would fly off of my shelf. Now, I could say that I read Rising Storm today because I want to be able to discuss the books with the students, which would be true, but I'll be real truthful. I LOVE this series! Maybe it's because I have four cats and I see my cats...more

Fireheart has finally convinced Bluestar that Tigerclaw is a triator. She exiles him from the Clan and appoints Fireheart the new deputy. Ever since she drove Tigerclaw out, though, she has been mentally sick and won't recover. Fireheart's nephew, Cloudpaw, is taken away by twolegs because of their tempting kittypet food. Fireheart meets up with Ravenpaw and tries to rescue Cloudpaw. He would do anything to get his nephew back. Yet, Fireheart knows that Tigerclaw is lurking in the forest, just w...more

This book was very creepy, when Fireheart was walking in the forest you felt like someone was right behind you! The characters learned a lot about Tigerclaw and his plan in this book. It's really important to read this book. It helps you understand the series better then anything. It may be slow at parts but you have to keep reading. Graystripe chooses what side he's truely loyal too, and you will love it. His decisions is for the better of all the forest cats, until a Dangerous Path. REA READ R...more
After many journeys, Fireheart of the ThunderClan has been chosen to be the deputy of ThunderClan. As for the previous deputy turned out to be a traitor and had been banned from the ThunderClan. However, even though Fireheart had been branded the new leader he still have concerns about TigerClaw(the previous deputy) still have evil plans in mind. Fireheart promised himself that he will protect the clans from all evil doers. I also believe that Tigerclaw will be back for revenge and get the power...more

Fireheart's new life as deputy isn't as great as it could be. After Tigerclaw, the former ThunderClan deputy, has been exiled from the forrest, Bluestar, the ThunderClan leader, was too sad to do her work. Fireheart has chosen the mentors for Fernpaw and Ashpaw, Bluestar was supposed to. Fireheart's naming ceremony was the dawn after Tigerclaw was exiled. The warrior code says new deputies must be chosen before moon-high.
VERY ADDICTING and an awesome read! Makes sure you read these in order though, as the plot is complicated and the world of the clans would be hard to understand if you just jumped in at the forth book. The characters are very dynamic and we see their strengths and their weaknesses, this makes them believable. Power is one of the main themes in this book, and there are a few deaths.
I finished this book in 2 days. Even though Tigerclaw is gone, Fireheart is in serious trouble. I feel bad for him, he has to protect his clan from Tigerclaw, take on the duties as clan deputy, and deal with Bluestar, who has become suspicious of everything and everyone. To a certain extent, Bluestar made this book a tad boring, but there was enough action to balance it out.
This book was pretty good. There was plenty of drama and action and it keeps you turning the pages. There were suprise twists and things like that... it was good. If you like cats or fantasy, you HAVE to read it!
Man the Warriors books have to be some of the best books I have ever read. :-) I hope Bluestare goes back to normal soon. Firestare is practically being the leader.
