Awesome!

YES! Finely its on the nook!! It will be so cool to see how the clans were first made and maybe even how the cat first got together! I also really like the cat on the cover! He reminds me of firestar only more of a red-ish-brown.

I just finished reading The Sun Trail, and have to say I am somewhat impressed. After the completely sickening end to Omen of the Stars, I was reluctant to pick up the next Warriors book, thinking that it might be just as bad. But for some odd reason or another, I found myself picking up The Sun Trail and settling down to read. Definetely not the best Warriors book I've ever read, but not as terrible as the Omen of the Stars series—I mean, what was the POINT of six poorly written books for a very "undramatic" ending? What a waste of time and money!! I am pleased to say that The Sun Trail was worth it, and a fairly good read.
The Sun Trail takes place long before the events in Into the Wild, the first Warriors book. So you could start here without getting confused!! A Tribe of wild cats live in the mountains, where prey is scarce, and the cold winters make survival hard. When their leader, an eldely shecat named Stoneteller, or Half Moon, recieves a strange sign, some of the Tribe cats belive that food and survival may be easier elsewhere. A tomcat named Gray Wing is skeptical about leaving, but when his half-brother Jagged Peak runs away, he is given no choice but to leave and forge a home someplace else.
The cats face many trials on their way there, including deaths of several members. When they arrive at the "end of the sun trail" they are faced with more problems—hostile "rouges" and other cats that are reluctant to share the space. The fighting amonst the cats eventually leads up to a "final battle" according to "Secrets of the Clans", where the cats join together, led by the strongest cats after the battle—Thunder, Wind, Shadow, River, and Sky—to form "Clans".
The Sun Trail was filled with lots of action, and got very fast-paced towards the end. But in the beginning of the book, it was rather slow. I was confused by all of the cats, and had trouble adapting to all of their names, because apart from Half Moon and Lion's Roar, I had no clue who any of them were. As the book progressed, I began to piece things together, and realized that there are lots of "original" Clan cats here—such as Wind(star) and Gorse(tail), the first leader and deputy of WindClan, Tall Shadow (possibly Shadowstar, first ShadowClan leader), Dappledpelt (first RiverClan medicine cat), and Cloudspots (first ThunderClan med cat). Some of the characters I didn't really like either, such as Clear Sky, Jagged Peak, Dewy Leaf, Moon Shadow, and especially Storm. I can't understand why Gray Wing liked her so much, when Turtle Tail was a much nicer cat!!
Also, we didn't have that much of a chance to get "attatched" to the characters before they died, so it really wasn't that sad to me, because I didn't really have any feelings for those cats. I hope that in the next book, Thunder Rising, the Erins will emphasis more on their characters. I also can't wait until the "final battle", which I hope is in the next book. I'd also like to hear more about how the first Clans were organized, later in the series.
All in all, fairly decent, and I think The Sun Trail deserves it's three stars. If you, too, were disapointed by Omen of the Stars, it might be worth your while to give Dawn of the Clans a fair chance. I hope this review was helpful!!

    Honest Reviewer

    I was a HUGE Warrior fan way back when this series first began. It was good and steadilly became worse, worse AND WORSE. No offense to Erin but the series is beginning to describe one word: STUPID!! I was REALLY hoping you would be done with Warrior Cats after The Last Hope but NOOOOO! You wrote tons of small books about the beginning of the Clans and I DON'T WANT TO KNOW EVEN MORE! I am honestly beginning to hate this series because the story sounds like a game of Mad-Lips, No good humor, Not entertaining, Not enjoyable to read and it's just A LOAD OF FOX DUNG!!! No disrespect Erin but you need to try some new writing tactics if your going to countinue to be called "an author" Please note that i mean no disrespect to Warrior Fans or Erin Hunter but I'm tired of reading stories and NEED TO MOVE ON!
    P.S. please note if i come across any of you warrior cats RP during my Nook Reviews i will report you. SO STOP NOW!

    Looks dumb

    I mean, cats? All I am seeing is "join my clan" which is stupid because no one will tell me how good this book is and if it worth reading. And no one will join it. Whatever it means.
