The first time I actually took a quick glance into the book was when i was 8, and I found it hard to understand the vocabulary, and the type of "style" in which I mean the 'paws, 'stars, and 'kits. I also think that they wouldn't understand that the series isn't just some fun fantasy. It also includes death and violence, which I don't quite think is allowed to be shown to small kids.(less)

Meljean's note: This is my 9-year-old daughter's review of this book. We're kind of hard-ass parents, so we're making her write book reviews during the summer (when we let her take a break from math). She's apparently already better at reviewing than I am. :-/

1. Which book did you read?

I read Warriors: The New Prophecy: Midnight

2. Why did you choose this book?

I chose it because all the warrior books that I read in the previous series were very interesting and I wanted to keep reading the books

Alrighty! I finally re-read all the New Prophecy books, with the exception of Moonrise as I don't own a copy and was too lazy to go to the library.
I'm currently re-reading the entire series so I can write new, updated reviews.

So note that this review is for ALL of the New Prophecy books (Midnight-Sunset). Also, another thing. Names change throughout the series as the cats grow up (a sort of Rite of Passage). For the sake of simplicity, I will refer to characters with the names they have in the f

I love the warriors series. But in this one absolutely NOTHING HAPPENED!
It was just like..

and even thought they all new the clans were in trouble, the six cats on the journey were in no apparent hurry to get home.

Well ok, something did happen.
They found midnight.

The start of the second series. A new prophecy seems to be leading the cats out of the forest as it is about to be destroyed by humans. New set of POVs with younger cats taking the limelight. Remains very readable.

I felt like this book was set to be a bit of a letdown; after the ending to the first Warriors series, I really don't see how anything could compare. This definitely felt like an introduction, but still kept some of the same aspects and situations as the first series so as not to scare long time readers. There are also more 'travel' scenes, reminiscent of all the camping that goes on in 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'. You know they're all headed towards something, and you can't wait to g ...more

Este libro me daba un poco de cosilla por si fuera demasiado infantil para mí, pero la verdad es que la historia engancha y se lee en seguida, el libro es muy fácil de leer y nos adentramos en los clanes junto a los gatos mientras cazan y resuelven sus disputas.
El libro es bastante introductorio, podemos conocer a gatos del Clan del trueno y del río , mientras que los otros clanes quedan un poco relegados.
Me ha gustado mucho la personalidad de Zarzoso y E

Re-reading this reminds me why this is my least favorite of the Warriors series.

I hate Squirrelpaw. If there were at least some legitimate reason why she was a jerk the whole time then I could at least tolerate her, but there is absolutely no reason for her behavior. I'm sorry if I can't relate or sympathize with a character who yells at everyone for no reason, has no respect for anyone, constantly talks backs, and gets herself into dangerous situations after being warned and then acts like it's

Estos libros tienen la habilidad de engancharme sin que me de cuenta, cuando menos lo espero ya voy a más de la mitad. Ahora me arrepiento de no haberlo leído antes.Al inicio fue complicado por los personajes nuevos y el cambio de voces protagonistas, pero Zarzoso, Hojarasca, Esquirolina y hasta Puma se metieron ya en mi morado corazón igual que lo hicieron Látigo Gris, Carbonilla y Estrella de Fuego en su momento.
El libro puede sentirse lento porque nos cuenta como cuatro gatos, uno de cada cla

This was the first warrior cat book I ever read, and it's kind of amazing that I got as into this as I did, because while this is a good, necessary book that not only sets up the rest of this series but the rest of the series after this one, it is s l o w. But I'm pumped to keep going--and tbh, little Brambleclaw, tiny aggressive Crowpaw , and also Jesus-lover-Feathertail... good times.

Warriors is a series that is very exciting and adventurous. This book is about how six cats go on a journey to find midnight. They meet Purdy, a kitty pet who makes him their guide on their journey. He tries to lead them in the direction of the sea but gets lost. Then when they’re in the up walkers territory they get ambushed by rats and Tawnypelt gets injured bad.

Main characters
Tawnypelt- strong from shadow clan.
Brambleclaw- big powerful tabby from thunder clan.
Stormfur- gray graystri

I have only read the first 3 books of this series due to that fact that I didn't have the money to get the rest of the books. Soon I'll be starting up again.
Like for my reveiw for the 1st book of the original Warriors series, I'm going to bundle my reveiw to those I've read into one. I love this series so far, only a tiny bit less than the orginal Warriors. If I could have given this 4.5 stars I would have.

This book still focuses on Thunderclan but now it focuses on not Firestar, but his forme

The New Prophecy - and probably all the other series - isn't as good as the original, in my opinion. I still LOVE the books, but if I'm comparing them, the original is the best, and probably always will be. I still found this book really interesting and I really got into it in the second half. I love the balance between dialogue and description and that makes it good fr all ages. You really get to know most characters and really feel for them and know what they're feeling.

EPIC! Yeah, it's time to follow the next generation of warriors! This is the first book of the 2nd arc, The New Prophecy, WARRIORS. Several peaceful moons (6 months) have passed since the last book - The Darkest Hour. Lot's of exciting stuff happens and we learn a lot, as new characters come into this series. It may be strange to have new main characters at first but you quickly get to love them just as much as Firestar and Graystripe. The book alternated between different viewpoints which is go ...more

Creo que una idea general de lo que va el libro ya se encuentra en la sinopsis por eso mejor dejaré unas opiniones. Este primer libro de la segunda saga me tenía nerviosa y emocionada por lo perfecta que es la primera saga. Me va gustado casi tanto como la anterior y se puede comenzar a leer sin leer la primera porque explican lo necesario. Los personajes que más me gustaron son la gata Esquirolina y en solitario Puma. Casi al final el libro se vuelve algo lento y tedioso, honestamente ahí pensé ...more

Hmmmmmmmm..... New main character, and what's this???? Switching off from other cats views?? Wow. Having this been the first time reading a book where different chapters had different view points from different characters, it was a little much to comprehend. However, it was a good read, with a new plot, and later in the future revealing that the next series would come together to make the best plot eva!!!

Entretenido, muy introductorio y que le falto mucha acción que espero, con ese final, que el siguiente este mucho mejor que este porque este simplemente es muy lento.

Inizia una nuova avventura per i gatti dei Clan della foresta, StarClan annuncia un gravissimo pericolo e manda un gruppo di valorosi guerrieri in missione. Stavolta però il protagonista non è il mio amatissimo Firestar, ormai leader del suo clan, ma i guerrieri più giovani tra i quali una delle sue figlie: nonostante questo non sento la mancanza dei vecchi personaggi perché Erin Hunter (pseudonimo sotto cui lavorano 5 scrittori) riesce anche stavolta a creare una storia avvincente e plausibile. ...more

Das war richtig langweilig.
Erstmal ist sehr sehr wenig passiert. Und dann war das was passiert ist nicht mal wirklich wichtig.

Eine Mission wird vom Sternenclan aus gesandt, um herauszufinden was in Zukunft mit dem Wald passiert. Zum Schluss erfahren die 6 Katzen, dass eine Autobahn durch den Wald gebaut werden soll und die Clans fliehen müssen.

Soweit so gut.

Gleichzeitig bekommen die Clans im Wald, die Veränderung schon zu spüren!

Am Anfang habe ich mir noch schwer getan, die Katze zu unterscheiden und die Welt zu verstehen, aber ich muss sagen, so als Kinder- bzw. Jugendbuch ist es nicht schlecht. Ich will sogar wissen wies weitergeht.

It book is talk about four cats each from different clan. And leader said they should find the “Midnight”, and save they’re clan. Finally they found “Midnight”, the “Midnight”is a badger. I like this book is because Let me feel I can learn many things from cats, respect the forest.

I think the theme of this book was to never give up. I say that for most of the books i read, but this one i know that is the theme. it was by luck that they were able to complete the mission that they had to do. I'm talking about the cats when I say they. They are all very strong, courageous, and loyal. that is why they succeeded (plus that little bit of luck). they pushed through to the end, that is why the theme of this book is never give up.
