WARNING-May seem rant-ish and contain several typos, as I was typing fast.

I'm you're ordinary [rabid] Warriors fan, eager to snap up the latest book, disregarding genre or length. Imagine my excitement when I found out-New graphic novel, coming out April 24! If only then I would stop and come to the conclusion that this "graphic novel" was really a poorly written comic book with awful artwork.

Let's start with the plotline. To put it in a nutshell, ThunderClan warrior Graystripe is taken away fro

Recommends it for: 7 and up who like cats, or who think Warriors sound interesting, but are too young for the novels.
A nice graphic novel, all about Graystripe!
One of my sons tried to read the first Warriors book; I think in an attempt to read a thicker, more grown-up feeling book. We worked on it together for a while and he told me that he "was allergic to this book because he's allergic to cats." I asked if that was his way of saying he didn't want to read and it and he replied that yes, he thought it was really boring and wanted to stop. I thought we were done with the series.

Well, at the library last night he found this graphic novel of the first b

Hunter, Erin. Warriors: The Lost Warrior (2007): Series #1. This graphic novel is done in the style of a manga comic. It is not in comic strip form but rather in blocks of scenes with simple black and white images and speaking bubbles that emphasize sound like in a fight and blunt dialogue. Graystripe is a wild cat from the forest that belongs to with the thunderclan and considers himself a warrior that knows how to fight, hunt, and protect his clan. Many wild cats join the starclan, which means ...more

This was a really good, quick read which I really enjoyed. Millie was an interesting character to meet and Greystripe was drawn to be incredibly handsome and bold. I really love the portrayal and plot of this edition and I look forward to reading the other two in the set so I can see how this particular story ends!
You know, as hokey as the Warrior's books are, they're actually not too bad. I'm embarrassed to say that I even kind of like them. I'm pretty sure I would have thought they were they most amazing books ever when I was in about fourth grade.
Graystripe, captured by Animal Control and living with a loving family of "two legs" longs to reunite with his feral cat clan--Thunderclan. Wonderful to read for anyone who enjoys fantasy novels and cats.
This is the first Warriors manga book ever made. It was also the first Warriors book I ever read. =P The illustrations are great and the storyline is great. Five stars.
this is graystripes side. after he is kidnapped by twolegs, he meets mille. he and mille set off on a quest to find the clans. i love these books a zillion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am an always fan of Manga and when looking at the bookstore, "Warriors:The Lost Warrior" stood out with all the others in the series of chapter books and Manga.

This book this a fast read, with me finishing it in 20 minutes. The storyline is about Graystripe, a wild cat who lives with a warrior clan. Graystripe is then broken up with his clan and is lead to a suburban household. He then comes accustomed to living with his "two legged" family. He explores his new life and meets an interesting ca
Again, this is a re-read, but a really enjoyable one nevertheless! You can read these in around 15-20 minutes, so they're extremely quick reads!

Characters - 5/5 - Love them! Graystripe is an EXCELLENT character; he's always been one of my favourites. I just love his personality and the way he acts around everything. He also showed a lot of emotion in this particular book. And then Millie came along as a kittypet who was so great at hunting and fighting. The relationship between Graystripe and Mi

This is a nice brief comic that introduces readers to the Warriors series. Greystripe is a warrior cat of the Thunderclan, a tribe of wild cats (presumably descended from feral cats) who live in the forest. Warriors are scouts, hunters and combatants in the many inter-clan wars. He's lived a long a full life, but is a widower who has seen his kittens die as well. As the story begins, human construction crews are cleaning out the forest, capturing the cats to send them to the pound. Greystripe ma ...more
I don't remember when I exactly read this manga but it was this year so my Date finished is going to be set for today as a result of this.

I was given the set by a friend of mine who no longer wanted them...I won't say no to a free book(s)..I just took forever to actually read them.

All the books in this mini series (of 3) are cute and the stories are good too...Nothing outstanding but for a light nights read it's worth it if you're a fan of the Warriors series or just curious.

This is the first book in the Graystripe's Trilogy series of manga/graphic novels, which details the journey Graystripe took from the time he was cat-napped from the Two-leg place on the rescue mission to save other clan cats until the time that he is reunited with the clans. It shows how he and Millie get together and how their relationship developed.

This is an entertaining story and gives the reader more background about Graystripe's experiences away from the clans that we'd never read about
Graystripe's clan has been caught! As he and other cats work to free those that are already in cages, the plan backfires and Graystripe is carried off in a van, and is sent to live with 'Two-Legs' (humans). As years pass, he grows soft, but never forgets his fellow warriors. After a particularly startling dream from his former mate, he decides to try to escape and find his clan. It's difficult, as his domestication has made his sense of direction weak and he hasn't had to fight anyone in years. ...more

I just read an fascinating book called The lost warrior by Erin Hunter.I liked this book because it is a great series. This book is told in the first person point of view. The book starts out with a cat named Graystripe and the humans destroyed his home so the humans took him to be a pet but he didn't like it so he ran away. Also another cat witch was a kitty pet named Millie comes along on the journey to try to help gray stripe find his home. Graystripe is a brave courageous cat, and Millie is ...more

This is a good book. My favorite character was Millie. I love the adventure, but I could pass on the mean kitties.
Florence Dupuis
This is a very fun book. It's short and easy to read, but I just love how it gives us an in sight on what exactly happened between the last novel where we saw graystripe, until the one where he just reappears out of thin air. And Millie is a great character, she is impossible not to love.
The Warrior's series is wildy popular at my library, so I decided to see what its all about. I can see the appeal for J fiction readers (fast-paced, advenutre, numerous sequals and spinoffs). However, the writing in the manga series at least is simply bad. I read the first chapter of the first novel hoping that the manga just didn't capture the spirit of the series, but no such luck. I couldn't get past the simplistic style. Great series for reluctant readers looking for fast-paced action advent ...more

Okay, I'll be honest: I really didn't get much out of this. Warriors is great for imaginative people like myself, because you have to imagine so many things-- what characters look like, the forests, everything.

Now, I'll say it loud and clear: This ruined it for me. Warrior cats just aren't meant to be manga. It's just not done. If you're a Warriors fan, I recommend you read it just to see what I mean. It's a quick 15-20 minute read, and I think you should really read it for the sake of being a
Wow! Okay, this was a totally different format. I don't think it was written by the same people -- I'm not sure. But poor Graystripe! They turned him into a kittypet! And it takes ANOTHER kittypet to talk him into trying to go to his real home. Sad. This is not at all the way I'd imagined brave Graystripe, who would do anything to be with his one true love, would turn out. It seemed totally out of character for him. I was glad that he finally met a cat besides Firestar who could incite him to do ...more
