They have the cover picture up for this already?! Wow. Hey, I think that's Lionblaze on the cover! He finally gets a cover picture after what, 10 books with him as one of the main characters?

(That was my short little review I wrote before the book came out that got more comments than any review I've written before. Now, on to the REAL review.)

This was definitely the best book out of Omen of the Stars, and better than any book of Power of Three.

This book is why I have stuck with Warriors for over three years. It had all the excitment a book from this series should, enough surprises and plot twists to keep things interesting, and it answered enough questions, while leaving enough for the fans to ponder over too.

I can honestly say that after getting past the first few chapters, I was not bored once while reading this book, something t

It's gonna be epic.
It has to be Hollyleaf. Or maybe Ravenpaw from the first series wants revenge on Tigerstar and comes to help.
I don't thinnk Hollyleaf is the fourth beacause on Wikipedia, in the fifth series the battle has begun and the Three are stressing out because the can't find the fourth.
I also heard somewhere in the fifth series Firestar dies. If this happened in the first series or maybe even the second, I would be shocked. But now I dom't care. Erin made Firestar borin

Oh my gosh I can't wait to read it! *screams at the top of her lungs then does a victory dance* I think the "Forgotten Warrior" is going to be Hollyleaf and it's gonna be something like she's been living alone and she had actually escaped the underground river. I really hope Hollyleaf come back! I miss her and I wish that Lionblaze, and mostly Jayfeather would forgive Leafpool. It's so sad how they're angry at her and I really want Leafpool to be the medicine cat again!

The final battle is growing ever so closer. Lionblaze, Jayfeather, and Dovewing struggle to find the forth cat in the prophecy to save the clans. But in the midst of their struggles Sol returns. He (of course) is back to his old bag of tricks. But is he truly the forgotten warrior? After all he was never a warrior to begin with... No, the forgotten warrior is a different cat. (Take your best guess :) )

I loved the plot of this book. It was much better than the last warrior book. Dark Forest is br

This book is one of my favorite books out of all of the Warriors book. It is filled with action, and drama and it keeps me from wanting to read more. I hope that it will have the same effect to the other viewers as to what it did for me. In this book, i like the way how it transitioned from one characters point-of-view to another characters point-of-view. This book is so good, it will make you want to read the books to come. All in all, i think this book is great and it made me wan to read on mo ...more

It's coming to an end soon and it's been quite a wonderful time reading the story of these warriors. I've named my cats after characters from the stories. My grandchildren love Warriors.

The Forgotten Warrior, the long awaited book 5 in the Omen of the Stars (OotS) series of the Warriors book. And the second to last book of the series as we know it. According to the authors, the next series of Warrior Cats isn't written; and would take place at the beginning of the clans, kind of like prequels. I was worried I'd be confused; having finished the previous OotS Warriors book in June; but there are always short and sweet little reminders thrown in, which aren't excessive; cause I di ...more

"Warriors: The Forgotten Warrior" by Erin Hunter was a great book because it was suspenseful. The tension between the Clans always makes you wonder what will happen next. There were also lots of surprising twists. For example, "I was there when Ashfur died. And his death was my fault. Her confession was greeted with a horrified gasp from the cats. As if at a word of command, they shrank back, widening the circle" (pg. 188). I chose this quote because it shows the surprising part when Hollyleaf r ...more

Being returned to the world of suspense stirring amongst the clans living at the shores of the lake, a traveler arrives. A cat of malevolence and full of vengeance from his last visit to the cats of the clans, he begins to turn clan against clan, and once more, hostilities arise, despite the need for all four clans to unite against the rising darkness of the spirits residing in the Place of No Stars. Then when a cat who had been almost forgotten by the warriors of ThunderClan, comes back from, s ...more

These books never fail to impress me. Incredible writing, good plot, amazing and lovable characters, and great life lessons. I'm 17 years old and proud to say I read these books. They are my second favorite series. Even though theres 25+ books, they never bore me! This installment is as good as any of the others. I can't wait for the next one, keep them coming Erin Hunter!

It was horribly written. I didn't like it one bit, the book was very boring except for the part where Hollyleaf comes back but that's about it.

Does it come out later for USA? I think this is only Canada/UK. (Not sure of course). Ohhh, I've been waiting for this one!! I think the "forgotten warrior" is Hollyleaf.

What a great and exciting build up to the final book in the Omen of the Stars arc! Can't wait to read The Last Hope (and for the tears to come)!

Wow. This book stirs up the action in this series in ways that I didn't expect. I loved how Mothwing and Jayfeather start moving things forward and begin reunitings that need to happen. I loved the return of some cats that I was expecting to see again. It was one of my favorite books in the Warrior series.
