Was it good? No. Was it worth reading? Maybe for the last third. Anything that wasn't Alderheart's POV felt like frustrating padding. ...more

-takes deep breath-

I had moderate hopes for this book. Series three was really bad, but the last book made everything worth it for me. I was hoping something similar would happen with this series. Maybe God was telling me not to read it when months passed and I still had zero drive to pick it up.

I DNFed it with 40 pages left. I have never DNFed a Warriors book. I have read, literally, every Warriors book out until this one. I'm a die-hard fan. I put up with crappy books and unlikeable characters

Well. Another Warriors arc complete. And if I'm being honest, this series was overall disappointing. The characters were for the most part boring and unoriginal, and the plot felt recycled and drawn out unnecessarily.

But let's talk about this final book.

Firstly, I must say, I was completely shocked by the fact that this book actually showcases what is good in a relationship and what is not. Like, who would have thought that a book about CATS WHO LIVE IN CLANS AND FIGHT would be talking abou
The Vision of Shadows subseries hasn't been that great. The characters are sooooo lame and instead of being kept on the edge of my seat I'm mildly entertained. Yes, The Raging Storm was better than River of Fire and the other Vision of Shadows entries, but it certainly wasn't as great as the original series. But, alas, what can you do?
The biggest flaw of The Raging Storm was the lame, irritating, and somewhat cardboard-y characters. Twigbranch as warrior name was ridiculous at best. It's basical

I hate to be a downer, but this was by far the worst book in the Warriors series ever, and it was supposed to be a finale for this six-book one with Alderheart.

I was very interested at first, because... Well, the title says it all. The raging storm was foretold by Starclan, and of course the Clans don't really want to listen. I wouldn't consider that a spoiler since it seems to be the gen

After a decade, I'm finished with the Warriors series. I can't begin to describe how infuriating this arc is, but this franchise has been on the decline since Dawn of the Clans. So many older cats are behaving out of character, and the newer additions are boring af. I'm tired of ShadowClan being villians, and the lack of repercussions for breaking the Warrior Code is outrageous in Vision of Shadows.

I can't do it anymore, guys. I'm done.

A vision of Shadows as a whole was such a disappointment, so many fillers, and nonsense which could have been skipped - but then there would only be around two to three books and not six.

What I felt about this book is that more than half of it could have been skipped and still would make sense. The whole thing they have built up for the past five books, is just something that comes up within the last 40/30 pages? and gets fixed in less than 3 chapters.

It's a really disappointing read, I have en

It was....okay. I felt bored reading it. The story arc didn't go anywhere. There was no big event or anticipation or suspense about anything. The Alderheart sections were decent, but the outcome of that was so flat. It seemed like one big filler book. For it being the last of the six books in the series, it didn't have that "finale" feel to it, and that was disappointing. I always look forward to reading the last book because it tends to be exciting and I usually can't put the book down. This on ...more

So while for A Song of Ice and Fire it would take me so much effort to write beautiful long reviews, I get a pit inside me when I realize there are so many fans and people with strong opinions mine don’t matter at all, so I just make half coherent updates for my own reference.

OOOOOOOHHHHH!!! This book was amazing! But, what is wrong with Twigbranch????? This book was so interesting, and by far my favorite book in this sub series. I don't understand why the series HAS to go on. I mean, the Clans are PEACEFUL right now, which usually is very rare! ...more

This Warriors series has been significantly better than the one before it (Dawn of the Clans), and I was satisfied by the ending. I’m getting pretty close to finishing my full Warriors reread!

I believe that Raging Storm was a good ending to the vision of shadows arc. However, it is still far from my favorite warriors book. I think Finleap was slightly out of character, and forgiven too quickly for what he did. I am glad Dovewing is safe, as she is still one of my favorite cats. Her child, Shadowkit, is an interested new character, and I hope he stays as one. Violetshine's family will be interesting, and I am excited to find out more. Overall, a good book, and I am excited to see what ...more

For more reviews and bookish content:

This arc in the warriors series started out with relative promise - but it definitely does not deliver. River of Fire and now The Raging Storm are some of the worst books in the Warrior Cats canon to date. It feels like Erin Hunter was so committed to having the arcs be six books that they didn't care if they had enough material to fill the books.

Except that they did have enough material to fill the arc, they just chose to put it elsew

It took me 3 days to read it, I have a lot of work. But even with that, I managed to read it as quick as I could. Raging Storm, a strong name for the last book of "A vision of shadows" arc. But, does it fits the standards of a good ending book from warriors sagas? I hubly say... no. Sorry, but this book lacks of something really important: content. But why?

We have the three view points of Alderheart, Twigbranch and Violetshine, and only Violetshine's has a lot to offer to the rea

I loved the book, but to much romance.

I love warriors, this book really help the spirit of the whole series and pulled it together quite nicely, but there was just one this about this book that I simply despise. There is just to much romance, this whole book was practically a romance novel. I like some of it in these books, like Graystripe and Silverstream for example, but it just took over the book and really spoiled or for me.

A nice ending for the AVoS series! I especially enjoyed Alderheart chapters, and loved seeing him stand up for what he believes in. This one had more romance than the others but, for once, I didn’t mind. Leafstar was fantastic, really showed she cared a lot about her Clan and took the decisions she considered to be the best. Twigbranch really showed her growth and was pretty heroic. Juniperclaw was an unexpected (but pleasant) surprise and I really liked his character.

I've been keeping up with the Warriors series for seven years now. The beginning of this latest arc held promise, and at times, I really enjoyed the writing. But the whole series became less interesting with every book. From the beginning, it sounded like Violetshine and Twigbranch were going to have a role as big as the Three from Omen of the Stars. However, that didn't happen. And the end to this series was honestly, just not that great in comparison to the Darkest Hour (original arc) and the ...more

"Fear tugged deep in Alderheart´s belly. The Clans are in danger, and there's nothing he can do."

Wow! Well, at least, wow in the sense that it's over. Was that really how the Erins planned to end this arc? I won't go much into spoilers because, but i will say that it didn't feel like a final book.

Raging Storm had, from the start, a hard show to follow up to. Not in the sense of quality, but storywise. Despite the road to wrap up the Skyclan joining-plot, it was a hollow walk that offered little

Thank goodness A vision of shadows is finally over. Every series before this one was enjoyable to read, but I feel like Erin Hunter is trying way too hard now. After Omen of the stars: The last hope, the warriors universe gradually lost its charm. Bramblestar's storm and Crowfeather's trial, both taking place after omen of the stars, were fun to read, but this series was probably my least favorite warriors series ever. I was glad to see that skyclan at least got a home, but now there's even more ...more

StarClan has sent a common vision to all the medicine cats of the Clans around the lake. They see five saplings standing entwined against a strong wind. But when one sapling is uprooted and blown away, the other four inevitably fall also. The medicine cats interpret this to mean than if any of the lake Clans depart, all five Clans will disappear.

A dispute between SkyClan and ShadowClan about territory leads Leafstar, SkyClan's leader, to decide to take her Clan back to the Gorge, where they live
