Erin Hunter is mostly widely known for her "bestselling Warriors series", and because of this, Seekers (and Survivors, for that matter) is not given the credit that it really deserves. I mean, let's face it—Warriors has gotten quite boring. I found myself stumblinb through the last half of "Power of Three" and literally dragged myself through "Omen of the Stars". It is because of the fail at creating an epic finalle that I am reluctant to open "Dawn of the Clans" or any of the Warriors ebooks. This is, however, quite the opposite with Seekers.
Seekers has always been packed with new adventure, action, drama, mystery, survival, and friendship, while Warriors has been repeating itself over and over again. The characters—mainly being Kallik, Lusa, Toklo, Ujurak, and Yakone—are relateable and always looking out for each other, while the Warriors cats have lately been self-centered and prickly (sorry to all you Warriors fans out there... but I must speak my mind, or I wouldn't get very far). In Seekers: River of Lost Bears, we get to experiance to hardship and heartbreak that the bears are feeling, and will no doubt grieve as well when ______ dies.
River of Lost Bears chronicles the continued adventure of four bears—polar bears Kallik and Yakone, black bear Lusa, and brown bear Toklo—as they travel on a search for their new homes. The group has already faced many troubles, including a run-in with some fierce polar bear bullies, and a mess-up with a pizzly(polar/grizzly) bear and his family. White bear Kallik has already found a home for herself and Yakone, with her long-lost brother Taqqiq, but she and her friend have agreed to travel with Toklo and Lusa to finish the journey. But the journey isn't going to be easy for them, as polar bears aren't at home in the forest.
Meanwhile, Lusa and Toklo delight at being under the trees again. But troubles continue to plague the group, and the bears wonder if they will ever survive the journey home. Dangers close in on all sides—hostile bears, a pack of angry wolverines, coyotes, and, of course, the usual flatfaces determined to crush the forest. Joined by the black bear Chenoa, the bears press on as they head for the mountains.
This story was very suspenseful, and I couldn't put it down! I was determined to find out what happened, and, I have to say the ending has left me hanging, and hungry for more! The only thing I did not enjoy was the increasing amount of "human" language in this series. Instead of the usual "fluff-brain" or "fish-brain", it's "stupid" or "idiot". I hope the Erins will take into consideration that these are bears (also cats, and dogs, from the other series), and not humans. Other than that, I was pleased with this book, and can't wait for "Forest of Wolves" to come out.
I would also reccomend reading Erin Hunter's latest series, Survivors, which is about a dog pack. I hope this review was helpful. Thanks for reading.

    I know this book will be good because i already read the 1st and 2nd and they are for advencherous books!

    This book is touching in some ways and also things that will make you giggle some if you have a good sence of humor and it is for older people with a high reading level.

    Good

    If you are around the fouth grade or higher read seekers. If you are in 2nd or 3rd grade, or higher, read survivors. If you are 6th grade or higher read warriors. This is why warriors is the best of erins series. Lots more action and fighting. All erin hunters series have "lowest possible age to read", but dont have a higher one. So it is ideal for any reader older than... This book was pretty good, but, compared to warriors, not a "blow my socks off this was the most amzing book ever" kinda deal. If your in 6th grade or older read warriors too. It is a little bit more action packed, and likely to show up mire on your radar. If you are in fourth grade, however I highly reccomend this book. If you are around the younger stage, read or have sombody read to you the survivors books. Oh, and by the way, for all you warriors fans out there, the next book comes out january 29, 2013, and it is a super edition called "Cloudstars Journey". It sounds pretty good. The next series, titled "Dawn of The Clans" comes out march 5. The first book is named "The Sun Trail". For all you Survivors fans out there, the next book is titled "A Hidden Enemy". It is released july 2nd, 2013. I am currently unaware of when the next seekers book is and what erin hunter is calling it. Sorry.

    Thank you for reading
    --- I know now you all expect me to put a warrior name or somthing, but thats stupid. No offense to all those who have one (:

    P.S. the plot of "Survivors, A Hidden Enemy": the pack has settled in what seems like a good place, but soon they find they are not welcome their. A pack of wild dogs already have the territory. Bella creates a plan, with Luckys wit at the center. Will Lucky return to the pack? And if he does, will they be able to defeat the dogs?

    P.P.S. please excuse and names or spellings wrong, i've always been hopless at names and spelling

    P.P.P.S. this is a really long review. Whoops. Hahaha.
