The word echoed in his mind, invading his thoughts, bringing back memories almost too sorrowful to remember.
Eternalglow. His mate. Gone forever.
No. He would chase after her, even if it meant losing the rest of his nine lives. He would chase after her, no matter how long it took him.
Suddenly Falconstar remembered what the roaring sound was. It hit him like a bolt of lightning. The thunderpath. The monsters.
That was where Eternalglow was headed. She would get killed. Unless he got there. Then he could save her.
But what if she wouldn't let him? The question drifted through Falconstar's head. She hated him. He had killed her kit, though it had not been on purpose. The medicine cat, Redpool, had told him to get the berries for Toadkit.
Berries. That was all Redpool had told him. So he grabbed the first berries he saw. They were stacke neatly in a pile at the end of the den. They were bright red. Falconstar should've known they were deathberries, but in his panic he couldn't seem to rememer anything.
That was why Eternalglow had run away. That was why she was going to be struck by a monster's paws.
Falconstar stopped abruptly at the top of a hill, his golden eyes filled with pure terror. Lying on the thunderpath was a black body with orange tabby markings on the paws and ears. He was too late.
Falconstar ran down. He felt the sharp stones of the thunderpath pierce his pads, but he did not care. His mind was focused on one thing; Eternalglow. He gazed down at his mate, clinging to the small hope that she may still be alive.
Suddenly the roaring filled his ears again. But Falconstar stayed right where he was, and tears shimmered in his eyes. "Oh, Eternalglow..." he whispered.
Suddenly a sharp pain filled his whole body. His eyes closed and he fell to the ground.
Falconstar's eyes fluttered open. The pain was gone, and he smelled the familiar scent of the forest around him. Falconstar relaxed. It must of been a dream. He got up and looked around. His heart lurched. This was not his own home, but StarClan's.
"Welcome, Falconstar." Said a familiar voice.
He whipped around. In front of him was Eternalglow, her pelt glittering with stars. "No..." he whispered. "I cant be dead... I still have 5 lives left!" Falconstar's voice was filled with fear.
"Four." Corrected Eternalglow. "You have only on here to lose one life. You have done it before. And about Toadkit," she added as a speckled brown tom padded up beside her, "Whitefang told me that it was an accident. And now I will take care of him. Now go, your Clan needs you." Slowly his mate faded away, as did the rest of the forest, and he was back in his own den.

While the back of the book grabbed my attention, I have to admit, the interest stopped there. Though Jan Watson is a talented writer, this book ended up not being for me.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
The story starts out fully engaged, with some references to Troublesome Creek. While this book seems to be a stand-alone novel, maybe having read the previous mentioned would have been helpful. At times I seemed to be missing out on some of the back story, not quite understanding what they were referring to. I decided to keep reading, to see where the story would take me.
Where did it go? Not far. Even half-way through the book, I was still waiting for the tempo to pick up, it had to start gaining speed soon, or so I thought! I was anxiously awaiting for the romance interest to start between Lilly and the handsome miner, Tern/Joe.
While there were some parts that intrigued my interest, I was mostly left skimming the pages, waiting for something, anything, to grab my attention.
If you're looking for something to read, while you're waiting for the next, great release to come out, then this may be for you. If you're hoping this is the next great release...I wouldn't hold my breath.

The end of the book comes as a surprise when the tables turn and unexpected things happen. I really enjoyed reading this book, with some surprising twist and turns. It is a great work of historical fiction I have never read anything by this author before but enjoyed this book. I may read more by this author in the near future. I would recommend this novel to any lover of historical fiction and or Christian fiction. I received this book for review by Tyndale House Publishers. I was not made to write a good review, only to express my opinion.
