La verdad es que el libro tiene muy buen ritmo y es muy ligero, algo que me ha dejado un poco descolocada es que hay asuntos que no se resuelven al final y veo un atisbo de misterio muy interesante.

Un final de trilogía lleno de miedos, peligros y aventura, los gatos deberán unirse para poder sobrevivir.

Brambleclaw, Squirlflight, Cropaw and all the other Cats that went on the journey have returned. They convinced the rest of he clans that they had to run from the humans that were destroying everything. The cats convinced all the clans to go on the journey over the mountians.

Wow, what a pretty cover! Who wouldn't want to read this book based entirely on the cover alone? Luckily the story itself is reflected well with that pretty cover, filled with suspense, new friends, and excitement.

It was so sad to see the severe destruction of the Forest we grew to know so well in the first book series. Sunningrocks, Fourtrees and the River all destroyed by man's relentless ravaging of the Natural world. I would never call myself an Environmentalist, but I still hate the effect

I am at the part of the book where te cats on the journey come back from midnight(the badger). They must convince their leaders to go to the great rock to see star clan. They must do this to save all of the cats in the forest. So i far i think this book is a good book. I think it is because i am currnetly having an read-atthon on talking cats! I think that the warrirors seirs is a great book to start on! I still wonder if they are going to save the cats on the clans...

*SPOILERS IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE PREVIOUS BOOKS IN THE SERIES*

Squirrelpaw, Brambleclaw, Crowpaw, Stormfur, and Tawnypelt have finally returned from their long journey to find Midnight and a place for their Clans to flee. The twoleg destruction has grown much worse since the 5 cats left. Twoleg monsters have torn up half the forest, and Windclan is on the very brink of starvation, with Thunderclan and Shadowclan not far behind. Riverclan is the only clan that doesn't seem to be suffering, with t

Los gatos guerreros se merecen una oportunidad, los libros van mejorando conforma pasan y sus personajes se hacen cada vez mas reales, dejan de ser gatos, siguiendo siendo gatos a la vez, al contarnos una historia entretenida en la que empezamos ver en su comportamiento y en su forma de organizarse cosas cada vez más humanas.

This was awesome, though it took the cats little time to get to their new territory, it felt real and totally believable. The fact that it was mainly the twolegs fault, and that they drove them out by starvation and killing them off, made me have to continue. I did cry when Crowpaw got his warrior name. In this book you can see that first, what humans do to the environment is disguisting, all forms of life are special and have feelings, and lastly what you believe follows you no matter where you ...more

I really enjoyed this book. I love Erin Hunters writing style. This book starts of where Moonlight left off. The cats have just returned from there quest to find Midnight. They have found out that they must leave the forest to find a new home because the Twolegs are destroying the forest. The conflict comes in when some of the clans can't or won't leave the forest for one reason or another. I really like how we can see Brambleclaw and Squirrelpaws relationship grow stronger in this book. I also ...more

Sinceramente empecé a leer este tercer tomo sin conocer la historia de la primera saga, pues es una serie de libros que nace a partir de la saga original "Los cuatro clanes" que consta de seis libros. Este es el tercer volumen de una segunda saga llamada "La nueva profecia" y os informo que he leído el libro sin haber leído los dos primeros, pues Aurora es el tercer número de esta segunda saga. No obstante busqué resúmenes y reseñas para saber de qué iban los libros y no estar totalmente perdida ...more

The voyaging cats return and find the Clans in worse shape than they had imagined. Spottedleaf shows Squirrelpaw a dream about how to find Leafpaw. The rescue the cats but at a cost. The Clans finally decide to all leave and travel over the mountains to a new territory by the shores of a lake. Will they all find the homes they finally need there?

This book kinda felt like an in-betweener. The journey wasn't what it was all about like in the first book, it was really about how they finally left an

Something terrifying is happening in the world of the Clans. Amid the destruction of the forest, cats are disappearing, including ThunderClan's beloved medicine cat apprentice, Leafpaw. Now the young cats who set off on a quest many moons ago have returned with a chilling message: The Clans must move to a new home, or risk extermination.

But it is not easy to convince the cats to leave. Even if all four Clans agreed to travel together, the dangers waiting for them beyond their borders are impossi

Recommends it for: All warrior fans! Read them in order everyone!
This book was as enjoyable as the last. The clans must unite together on a journey as the clans go on the search for their new home. It has good and ending and is another addicting read, can't put them down!
Deb
This was definitely my favorite warrior book yet. Why? Good question. All the cats are finally together. That means no flipping back and forth between the 6 cats that are on a quest and the Clan cats that are in their territories. The territories are being destroyed by humans who are destroying everything, while they capture the cats that they find. Will all the clans decide to leave their territories for parts unknown? Will the cats who made it back from the quest be able to guide the clans to ...more

The clans are back! But this time they are going either die, or leave the home that they hold dear. The twolegs are destroying the forest, and one cat from each clan is missing. The clans may still have hope though, the devastation of the forest might be enough to bring the clans back together.

Все лесные племена будут чтить имена шестерых котов, которые первыми перешли через горы и проложили дорогу остальным.

вот тут будет много соплей и стенаний про котиков

Так просто нечестно. Третью книгу я не прочитала, а прорыдала за 3 дня. Такого накала эмоций у котовоенов не встречала. Сгусток боли, страданий, слез и безысходности.
Белохвост со всех лап бросился к подруге и обвился вокруг нее.
— Я не должен был тебя оставлять, — заплакал он и, словно безумный, принялся тереться носом о ее изуродова

I've been reading a series of young adult books for a couple of years now, usually reading 4-5 each year. The series is called Warriors and is about a society of cats (house cats, not lions, tigers, etc.) that live in the wild and are forced to cope with "real life" issues like hunting for prey, maintaining shelter, and the inevitable cycle of life. There are major issues to overcome including the politics of the four clans as well as the deaths of major characters. The books are suprisingly phi ...more

Inhaltlich:
Die Zweibeiner zerstören den Wald: Das Lager des DonnerClans ist dem Erdboden gleichgemacht worden, das Baumgeviert, der rituelle Versammlungsort der vier Clans, gefällt. Alle Katzen hungern erbärmlich. Es scheint unvermeindlich: Die Katzen müssen den Wald verlassen, wenn sie nicht sterben wollen! Doch wohin sollen sie gehen, wo sollen sie in Zukunft leben? Und wie kann unter solchen Bedingungen Frieden zwischen den vier Clans herrschen? Ausgerechnet jetzt hüllt der SternenClan sich

The third book in the Warriors: The New Prophecy by Erin Hunter. This was a pretty good book. It takes up right where the last book left off with Brambleclaw and company returning from their quest to the sun-down place.

When Brambleclaw and others return they find the Thunder Clan camp abandoned. It seems the Two-legs have gotten more aggressive and are destroying the entire forest. Will the Clans be able to stop the Two-legs destruction? Will Midnight's prophecy come true and the Clans forced to

I chose this book because it is the third book in The New Prophecy series. In Dawn the four Clans are finally pushed out of their forest home by the Twoleg monsters. They leave the forest and travel again through the mountains, running again into the Tribe of Rushing Water, with whom Stormfur, sadly decides to stay. Although the Clans endure many hardships along the way(hunger being the most prominent), they eventually find their new home-the lake. In my opinion, the best quote is "Well, we've s ...more

“Our father was a great warrior. Our mother is proud and strong. They shared only one flaw: that their only loyalty was to themselves above all other cats. We're not like that. We understand what it means to be loyal to our Clan. We have the courage to live by the warrior code. And because of that we'll be the most powerful cats in RiverClan one day, and our Clanmates will have to respect us then.” 26 likes
