I can certainly understand the appeal of the Warriors series. Its massive, well-developed world offers the reader a truly immersive experience. However, it's just not my thing for one simple reason: the characterization sucks on toast.

'Erin Hunter' (whichever of the three authors actually responsible for Eclipse) doesn't let her characters stand on their own, preferring to hold the reader's hand and explain every nuance of conversations and thoughts.

Example, from page 34:
"That was a huge leap!

It's been a while since I've been truly impressed by a Warriors book. The writing style is just on the higher end of "good", and usually the plot and characterization aren't particularly strong. Things have been pretty interesting in PoT, however. The Erins have done a good job of keeping us in the dark.
I think that if I had to choose one thing about Eclipse that I liked best (it's a hard decision), I think I would say that my favorite element was that I actually couldn't guess what would happe

Another great Warrior book... :-)

In this book a loner, Sol, shows up and tells Leafpool and Jaypaw a mysterious Omen. A day after that there is a horrible battle, and all four clans are involved. A beloved cat, Squirrelflight, is left with a bad belly injury. Will she survive?

Meanwhile, Starclan is helpless to the horrors that are taking place in reality, as a result one clan has lost faith in them. Only time will tell if they come back.

I've been attached to Erin Hunters' warrior cats ever since the first book.I now believe that somewhere,there are clans of cats with leaders who get into fierce wars.Erin Hunter adds enough life and excitement to sweep you off your feet and take right into the forest with the cats.

If I had any problems,it was with trying to picture the landscaping of the area.Although Hunter gives you a map of how the land looks like to both cats and people,you can't always look to the maps every five seconds.Th

Now we have loss of faith....and possible dementia?????? Anyway, the three's powers are hardly to the fore and there's some weird cat going round stirring it. The 4 clans are about as disaffected as they can be.....what will the next excert tell? I'll have to wait cos the library has a lot of holds on the last two of the series!

Recommends it for: All warrior fans! Read them in order everyone! :)
Like the other warrior books, I loved reading this and it was very addicting and suspenseful. The emotions that Erin Hinter is able to make you go through while reading these books proves hoe captivating they really are. You are sucked into a whole other feline world when you read these, with characters you have come to know and love and some you have come to hate... You go with them as they face problems and enemies as they overcome personal issues etc. This book is quite eventful and we meet a ...more

Amazing. Jaypaw tells the others about there prophocy to have the power of the stars. Suddenly, they learn that WindClan cats have been stealing prey. A big battle starts. Then Sol, the strange rouge tells them that the sun will disappear if they fight, but ThunderClan does not listen. A battle between the four clans start, but stops when the sun fades away. Sol went to ShadowClan and got all of them to believe StarClan is a lie. The cats go off on there own, and Tawnypelt and her kits come to T ...more

I don't know if I'm getting bored with the series or if the books are just not as good as they were when they started but I just didn't enjoy this one as much as the others.

Another great book by Erin Hunter. I really liked the action and the journey that the 3 got. As Jaypaw tells him littermates about the prophecy, they are struggling to believe him. But soon, they try to find what power they have.
Overall a great book

I've read this book before... but it was even better this time because I read books #1, #2, and #3 prior to this book, and I actually understood the plotline. Four books down, two to go. :)

This is about as fascinating as a glowing toadstool. It provides a great deal of opportunity for later books, as is usual in the Warriors series.

While I did enjoy the book, it just seems like the Erins are grasping at straws. I mean, these cats are supposed to have answers and they do but they are the vaguest answers I’ve ever read about or they’ll answer a question with a question or just give up all together.

The Erins have also really changed the leaders Blackstar and Onestar. I mean, I can understand Onestar wanting to be independent from ThunderClan but the way he’s going about it is a complete 180 and just very abrupt. If they were

This is more of a review of all Warriors books than just this one. I just find it interesting that as the POV characters change between series we see slightly different personalities from the cats we read about before. The Firestar of the Power of Three is definitely not the cat from the original series. While part of that is from changes in their lives and Firestar's own experience and age, I really do think that something of his character has been lost. Maybe in the changing of his name, Fires ...more

I rate this a full 5 stars and I can't wait to read the last two of The Power Of Three series.

Darkness is coming over the four clans and the threesome of Jawpaw, Hollyleaf and Lionblaze have the power of the stars in their hands so they are the ones who can stop it.
