There needs to be a higher star rating for how awesome this book was. Just the love, the loss, the death, and the evilness was all there. It was some of the aspects that a few Warriors books lacked and more. This book hit me hard and I will never forget this day where no one could move me from the couch as I clenched the book in my hands, announcing every time I hit a new chapter.

I can proudly mark this book:

It all started in 2008, and I had just won the State Reflections contest. I never made it to nationals, but as a petty gift I got a ten dollar Borders gift card.

When I ran into get a book, I was late to my aunts house, and I had to pick anything, as quick as possible. I saw a light green novel, with an orange cat on the front.
Now, I had always been a fan of felines, as I had one myself. I knew this book would be good, so I simply grabbed it and purchased it. I then left Borders.

The Last Hope is the final installement in the final series of Warriors books (chronilogically since 'the Erins' have said they would write a sort of prequel or origins series eventually). Words cannot describe how I have enjoyed this series as a whole. I got into it skeptically; wondering if even my love of cats wouldn't be enough to make a whole series of books with cat protagonists interesting. Thinking these were children's books that would probably bore me eventually...boy was I wrong. Thes ...more

I am writing this review in February which way after I actually read the book (which was in October or something I think) so a few of the things are a bit hazy to me.


* I really enjoyed the fact that Brambleclaw, Squirrelflight and Leafpool FINALLY made up. I am so so glad that the drama with them is finally over.

* Hollyleaf's death scene: sure it was sad but in my humble opinion it was really well written and probably the best authored scene in the entire book.

Firstly, this is the final book in the OOTS series and the final book where we're with the current cats. We've grown with them since Into the Wild many, many books ago and now it's over. We won't be journeying with the current cats any more and it's so sad. We must take a moment...

Recommends it for: everyone
The Warriors series was something that changed my life. I stumbled upon the first book in my uncle's home almost three years ago (the summer before Year 7), and was hooked ever since. So when the epic finale came out, I had to read it. Unfortunately, being in China, I couldn't get a copy until this morning.

With such an epic franchise to conclude, I was a bit worried that this book would be a disappointment. But while it was not a complete raging page-turner (which isn't that possible), it was fa

Recommends it for: fans of Redwall, Wind in the Willows, Watership Down; catlovers who don't mind formula YA fantasy

I try to rate the Warriors series as what it is - not "great literature", but formula storytelling for juvenile or tween readers, holding more in common with Nancy Drew than Huck Finn. None of the installations have earned 5 stars from me, but several have earned 4, despite flaws such as repetitiveness, painfully manipulative cliffhanger moments and major-character introspection, anthropomorphizing to the point of nonsense, and glaring biological impossibilities. It is fantasy,

Ok, Let me just say that this book marks the end of a chapter in my life. I would like to thank the warriors for..for... everything they did to help me. This has been an amazing experience..

How many reviewers so far have claimed that this series changed their life? Is it cliche and overused for me to say it?
I swear that these books changed my life.
I hated reading, and then I picked up a Warriors book.
After a while of reading these I began to think, "When are these going to end?!" but I regret those thoughts. The end of this book series is a true tragedy.

Okay, enough of the sentimentality (for now), here's my review:

Oh my gosh. I HATED the end to the series. The first series was amazing, and it went downhill from there. This book was the worst of them all. I could rant for hours on how bad this book was. First off, in the final battle, the three had nothing big to do in it. The clan cats would have been fine without them. And how many cats died? Like, only six. -.- Seriously? It's a battle against the greatest villians of all time, who have killed hundreds, and only SIX cats die? What is up with that. The ...more

Man, this series was my childhood in a nutshell. My obsession with this series would border ridiculous at some points in time. My happiness was overwhelming when I saw a novel of this series at Barnes&Noble, it being the first novel in English I actually read. Those were the days . . .

Now, this is the last novel in the fourth series The Omen of the Stars. It is the grande finale, where the Dark Forest rises to its full power and the true battle begins. Where warriors' loyalties are constantl

(It's been a while since I finished this, but I've finally got around to writing this review. I actually wrote this review the minute after I finished it, but that was my hand written one, not the one on here.)

I can't do it. I can't write a review of this. I'm lying on my bed, nose and eyes still burning from crying so much, and I just...can't.

This the reason I love reading. I still remember the day Mama put Warriors: Into the Wild in my hands when I was ten years old. And I didn't

Lionblaze thinks it's their long lost sister Hollyleaf. Dovewing is convinced that it's her sister, Ivypool.

This book is the best book EVER! But... I only gave it three stars because I can name a lot of major flaws that I think they could have tried harder to fix.


*The battle scene was the best in the whole series!
*I'm glad Mothwing and Cloudtail probably believe in StarClan, BUT... I wish they gave more detail and insight of what Cloudtail and Mothwing were thinking during the battle, like some bonus scene.

I was highly disappointed in this book... In fact, I hardly enjoyed any of the books in the "Omen of the Stars". Ever since the first series (which I absolutely adored), it just kinda start rolling down hill and The Last Hope was at the bottom. The plot just didn't add up in the end, and when Firestar was suddenly thrown back into it, I was like "What!?" After he became a side character after the first series, it makes absolutely no sense to suddenly put him back in the spotlight. But if it were ...more

Well here it goes. The final (not really) installment of the Warriors series. I remember when my sister started reading this series. I thought it would be to childish and for a few months I scorned the series. But after she was hooked on them I decided I would give the series a try. And boy what a ride. I would have never thought cats could be given such human characteristics (and believe me I'm an animal lover/activist). Quickly I fell in love with the clan cats.

Wow. Just.... Wow. This book was soo good. People at my school make fun of my love for this series because it's about cats, but honestly it is about so much more than that. It's about friendship and learning to accept people for who they are.

These books were my childhood. The first Warriors series was absolutely incredible, or so I believed at the time.
I haven't read the first series in a while, but I last picked them up in 8th grade, and they were still wonderful, albeit a bit childish for my new tastes.

Dovewing, Lionblaze, and Jayfeather were all described in a prophecy. They were to save the clans from the deadly Dark Forest, and now the prophecy has changed. Jayfeather hasn't yet told Lionblaze or Dovewing, but there's a fourth cat. He/she could be from any of the clans, and Jayfeather technically doesn't even know if the fourth is a cat! To make matters worse, the clans are on the edge, ready to tear each other apart. The Medicine Cats have all been told to avoid each other, that the only w ...more

I read the book Warriors: The Last Hope, part of the Omen of the Stars section of the series. It was written by Erin Hunter and is a fiction type novel. The story is of a group of four clans of cats that live around a lake, each have their own special differences from the rest. The main plot though is that the three cats that hold the power of the stars in their hands must find the fourth. It also is the last book of the entire series as of known since the original main character dies. The plot ...more

I don't think I have ever encountered a more talented author(s) than Erin Hunter. Only she can make me cry me eyes out and make me relive five series with three words.

I'm excited for the next series but, honestly, it's the end of an era within the Warrior Cats books and although most cats never really die I can't help but feel a small cat shape hole in my heart where several of the fallen cats belong. These cats and these books have been my childhood and losing some of those cats felt too real.

“My head is so full of memories!" Cinderheart wailed. "I feel as though there are two lives inside me, not one. How can it be my choice to make? Doesn't Cinderpelt have a choice? I can't make her a warrior! She was a medicine cat!"
Lionblaze pressed his muzzle closer. "She chose you", he murmured. "She gave you the choice".
Cinderheart began to tremble. Lionblaze could sense her mind whirling. "You can only live one life, Cinderheart. It's your choice! This is your destiny, not Cinderpelt's. She lived her own life".
Cinderheart gasped. Then her pelt smoothed. She lifted her chin. "Then I choose the life of a warrior". Her blue eyes shone. "And I choose you".
A breeze stirred the ferns. Lionblaze glimpsed a pale gray shape appear like a shadow beside Cinderheart. Stepping back in surprise, he saw it peel away from her and drift up like a cobweb carried by the wind. A soft voice whispered, Thank you.
Lionblaze's fur stood on end. "Did you see that?
Cinderheart was watching the shadow disappear into the trees. "It was Cinderpelt", she breathed. "I've set her free".
Lionblaze purred loudly. "Will you fight alongside me?"
Cinderheart pressed her muzzle fiercely against his. "Always".”
