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".

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

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.

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

"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

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

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

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!

Me sorprendió mucho como algunos elementos se fueron mezclando en este libro, como algunos gatos están unidos por algo mas que sangre y como se repite la historia de amores un tanto peligrosos.

La nueva profecía trae muchas misterios que están muy ligados a los misterios que afectan a los humanos también, cuestionamientos al clan estelar y sus propios capacidades, super recomendada esta saga para cualquier momento y edad
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

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.

WARRIORS By Erin Hunter. 143 pp. HarperCollins Publishers. $6.99 USD

WARRIORS is a great book for adventurous minds. In my opinion, it's for all ages even though it's an easy read.

There are four clans, Thunderclan, Riverclan, Windclan, Shadowclan, and Starclan. You may have noticed I listed five clans, not four, that is because Starclan isn't a living clan, I suppose you could say it's the heaven of the forest cats. Starclan sends the clan leaders prophecies

Another enthralling chapter . . . well mostly. I enjoyed it, I can't wait to hear how the clans are saved. And very cool meeting a different group of cats with different group structure and beliefs. It certainly wasn't great literature.

This was just fantastic!

With the setup out of the way in the first book, Moonrise starts off with a bang and does not let up the entire time. Seriously, the action in this story was nonstop and exciting, following both the Chosen new prophecy cats and the Clans back in the forest. Stormfur is our narrator for the prophecy crew, and it was interesting getting to know him better. Leafpaw is the voice for the Clans, and I absolutely LOVED her character - she might be my favorite in this set so far!

I first read this book when I was in fourth or fifth grade. I loved how there was the plot twist at the end with Feathertail being the silver cat instead of Stormfur, and her death made me get all emotional, even though I'm almost 14 now. When I reread this, I thought maybe I was too old for the Warriors world, but I was wrong. (Remember, age is just a number!!) I was pulled into the Warriors world, and I remembered why 'Moonrise' was one of my select favorites. I also love the cover with Feathe ...more

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 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.)

I've actually ventured farther into the second series! I resented it before because I loved following the main protagonist in the first series and I really disliked the turn this series took at first. I now think it's an interesting change and wonder where the writers will take the story next but I'm not excited for everything to change, not to mention all the heart-wrenching turns included! This probably sounds really cryptic and confusing to anyone not familiar with what is going on and it is ...more

Book 2 of the second Warrior series - The New Prophecy. The two series have gone on long enough that I needed the 4-and-a-half page long cast of characters list in the front to remember all the names and titles/positions. My mid-teen, however, said that list was not needed. Definitely read these books in order.

This was a pleasant read of an interesting journey and the friendships that formed through it.

Promises made too quickly. Quests. Prophecies. Ancestor worship. Speaking with the dead. This
