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...more

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!
Erm, yes. These are my guilty pleasure.
•Before Reading•

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...more
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...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

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!
This was so good. I can't believe I'm almost at the end of the whole Warriors collection. I'm not ready to leave this world yet!!! :)
The main things that happen in this book are that 1) Hollyleaf comes back (YAY!!!), 2) Jayfeather tells Cinderheart who she used to be (Why??) and 3) Everyone somehow gets convinced that Jayfeather killed Flametail, so they take his medicine cat power away (I can't believe this).
Also, Ivypool is finally treated like a warrior in the Dark Forest, but to gain the tru...more
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.

I'm hoping to find the truth of what happened to the single lost warrior that crosses my mind whenever I see this book, or after reading the last book..,

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.
This book is epic, it had many twist and turns from Hollyleaf returning to Cinderheart remembering her past as Cinderpelt I give this. Book 5 stars
The forgotten warrior! I wonder who that could be! The title could not spoil it for me, because I wanted to know more about this cat anyway. I felt like I could not get into her head last time, and understand what drove her. The added character of Sol, testing loyalties once more, adds to the plot and reignites old tensions. Finally getting into the meat of things, and the next book is going to be awesome!

If you have seen any of my previous reviews, thenbyou know how I am going to rate this book...more
I knew Hollyleaf would return eventually... They wouldn't go so far as to kill a main character!
I can't believe they return (Some enemy and a ThunderClan cat) I love this book!

So far the best book in the Omen of the Stars series.

"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

This book is about three cats that have the names of Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and dovewing and their adventures on saving the clans of the lake from danger and harm. In this book starclan cats told the clans that they should trust no other clan then their own, and that the dark forest is gaining strength in numbers and in power. This news causes the cats to be driven insane with fear and doubt that they will survive the attack, so Lionblaze, Dovewing, and Jayfeather attempt to make the clans reuni...more
