The six cats chosen from the four wild Clans of the forest--ThunderClan, ShadowClan,RiverClan and WindClan--are finally on their way back home!

In the first book of the New Prophecy, Midnight, the new warrior Bramleclaw gets a disturbing dream from StarClan telling him to join up with three other cats and "listen to what midnight tells you."
They travel to the Sun-Drown-Place (the sea) and find "midnight".

I love the drama that is in this series! Don't get me wrong there was plenty of drama with Firestars adventures.... But Squirrelflight is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters. Her personality if funny, but she is quick tempered with a retort when needed. She's a lot like me. :-)

I am rewriting this review because the old one was pathetic. I like how the Erins are flip flopping between characters in the rest of their series. It adds a different perspective to the warriors world. :-)

The 6 cats are on their way to fullfill the phrophecy as explained in the previous book. They discover that Midnight isn't what they thought it was and besides that they meet a new tribe that is in great danger. Danger is lurking ahead, a sacrifice or more has to be made and though decisions has to be taken. This is another book in the Warrior Cats - series, but for now it's my least favorit. Allthough it reads well, it's a bit repetitive and ongoing. There were a few tense moments, but still... ...more

I loved this series when I was younger, so I’ve been enjoying going back and reading through them again. This set definitely isn’t my favorite though, I’ve found that quite a few of the characters irritate me, and I find the plot to be quite lacking in this one especially. Still love this series though!

A whole lot of stuff happened in this book, but Stormfur being one of the MCs really decreased my rating! I definitely think I'm too old to fully appreciate this book, and even the nostalgia of years ago can't redeem them. They'll always stay favourites, but I can see they have flaws. Mostly flaws in their emotions and their insta-love :p Can't wait to get to new stories I haven't read before. ...more

The first 2/3 of this one was just as slow as the first book was, but thankfully around the 200 page mark it picked up and brought back the magic of the series that I fell in love with - in all of its action and heartbreaking brutality! I'm so glad, too, because I was starting to wonder if maybe the second series wasn't for me and that maybe I was falling out of love with the series. The last 100 pages reminded me why I fell in love in the first place!

The first book may have been on the boring s
This is crap. I hate these characters so freaking much! I just..... Yeah, I just hate them! I miss firestars bravery. I miss Greystripe's snarky sidekick role. I miss dustplet & sandstorm picking on Firestar then slowly growing to like him. I miss yellowfang.

Here, in this 2nd series I have to deal with a painful collection of characters who make me want to rip my hair out & put a bullet in my head. (Not really, but it's still pretty bad.)

Warning! This will be long, ranting, & possibly full of

Leafpool gets very annoying constantly wittering about whether to tell her father about where the questing cats have gone. Someone stole Greystripe, one of the best characters and it don't look like he's coming back. This volume left me proper grumpy and out of sorts - and the the Tribe of Rushing Water had their own concept of xenophobia. Tsk! ...more

The New Prophecy is my least favorite Warriors installment, but it's not bad, and I want to reread them all in order.

Had some dull moments, but the switching perspectives are still refreshing and interesting. The exciting bits were just epic!

Still love this second season a lot more than the first one.
I lthought the mix of povs between the traveling cats and the cats back home was well done.

Good but not my favorite

This book is good yes I will say that but out of all the warriors books I have read (43) this one has been my least favorite so compared to other books it’s great but... just didn’t fit up to the warriors standard. Keep up the good work I will always be a fan! GO LEAFPAW

This book was good, but sad. It almost made me cry, but MOST of it was really really good! THE other warriors books i kinda feel the same about. Anyway, this book was amazing to read. It was pretty quick too, but nice.

I'd probably round this book up to 3.5 stars. It wasn't bad, but was one of my less favorite warriors books so far in my reread. Some of the events felt slightly repetitive or overly dragged out, but I'm still ready to get into the next one! ...more

If I could use one word to describe this book, it's desperation. The Clans are desperate for food as Twolegs destroy their land, and the traveling cats of the New Prophecy are desperate to get home to help their Clans. Another wonderful read, with a heartbreaking last few chapters. ...more

"Warriors: Moonrise" by Erin Hunter

Personal Response: I feel that the book was written very well. The author captures the reader in a series of events and switches groups often throughout chapters. To me the book was a great read and I recommend that anyone read it.

Plot: Some events that take place in the book are as follows. A group of warriors wander through their forest and then through a city to find a prophet of a sort. They reach this prophet to learn that she's actually one of their most
