This was a great book, sadness, and more sadness, but happiness still is within this book and it is absolutely a book to read.

I think I liked book #2 the best but this was pretty cool also. Sasha really comes into herself and her strength but she goes through many sorrows first. There are a few moments where I go "why did you do that, stupid!" but mostly it was great. Would give 3.5 stars if could.

Recommends it for: children who enjoy reading graphic novels
This is another graphic novel in the Warriors series of books. It's the last of three books featuring Tigerstar & Sasha.

It's a dramatic and tragic tale in many ways, but explains the back story of how Hawkfrost and Mothwing came to live in Riverclan. It's a fast read and the illustrations are very good.

Our youngest really enjoyed reading this book and we are both looking forward to reading the rest of the graphic novels.

So I cried like 5 pages in. Crazy the way these books tug at my heart. Good story as always. The manga books are not my favorite however I love the series so I want to know every possible story! It was nice to see Hawkfrost in a better light, as young, innocent and loving to his family. He's by no means an evil cat in the 2nd series (I've only finished Dawn). But he's not exactly the most friendly. It's nice to see both sides of some cats.

Sasha's manga adventure draws to a close when her kits, Haw, Moth, and Tadpole (poor Tadpole!) are born. Sasha must make a decision: keep her kits with her and in danger, or leave them forever in a place where they will be safe. A book of tragedy and love, Return to the Clans is a book that tells the story beyond the original books as though Sasha really did exist...

As a whole, I have to say that this was the saddest story in Warriors that I've come across so far. Poor Sasha can never find peace it seems. I think she could have been so much happier if she stayed with Captain.

The art was still bothersome, some panels seems to look like it was improving, while others looked like it was getting worse.

sasha has found out abou tigerstar's trechiruos fait, and nomater how much blood he has spilled she longs to have him back.sasha's kits are born and leaffall is aproching. she now can't take care of herself and her kits. sasha wonders what she should do, take her kits to a clan or atempt to take care of them on her own.
Like with the previous manga in the Warriors series, I wasn't terribly impressed by the art, and the writing style just doesn't really translate all that well. It is a nice way to get more of the background on characters, however, especially when they do factor pretty big into the series itself like Sasha. It was worth taking the short time to read through it for that alone.

Amazing finale for the Tigerstar and Sasha series. Although, I do wish Sasha would have stayed in Riverclan. My only dislike was that Tadpole died, it was the saddest part of the series. It was great, none the less.

This story just made me sad. Poor Tadpole. I knew he wouldn't make it through the story but I still felt very sad. And I feel bad for Sasha. She got mixed in with Tigerstar not realizing who he was until it was too late. Glad to know her story though.

My son was right: there is a sad part to this book. The book wraps up the story of Sasha nicely, though.

I really liked this little series! It was a really good and easy read and gave readers access to exclusive information not mentioned before in the Warriors Series.

Can't say I'm overly fond of the drawing style on any of the manga series for these books, but it does fill in some (not all) gaps between series.

The ending was unpredictable and and the entire book had me on the edge of my seat, wondering what would happen next to Sasha and her kits.

i'm not sure if this is the right one, but i think its the one the cats return to the woods, only to find the clans are all gone. i think their mission was to reunite the clans.
