Yellowfang's Secret- The Life of a ShadowClan Medicane Cat
We learn in this book firstly about Yellowkit and her littermates Nutkit and Rowankit. They train as apprentices, and eventually become warriors—Yellowfang, Nutwhisker, and Rowanberry. Yellowfang is then told by medicane cat Sagewhisker that she is destinied to be a medicane cat. Yellowfang, however, is uncertain about this role—she has always dreamed of being a warrior, and has fallen in love with fellow warrior Raggedpelt ((the medicane cat code forbids med cats to take mates)). Despite the action and adventure that I love in Warriors, this book was a bit disapointing compared to previous ones.
First of all, we find out it Yellowfang's Secret that Yellowfang has the ability to sense other cats' injuries—forcing her to leave the life of a warrior and queen to follow the path of a medicane cat apprentice. However, in the Power of Three and Omen of the Stars, it states quite clearly that Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Dovewing's powers are unique and beyond all other cats—including the warriors in StarClan. If they have this power that no other cat can posses, how come Yellowfang has a similar power when she isn't Firestar's kin?
Second, this book doesn't reflect the first four books of the Warriors series, in which Yellowfang is ThunderClan's medicane cat. Her personality changes a LOT in the very last chapter, and swaps to the trait of a totally different cat. The other charecters in this story are also hard to develop, as some of them are hardly mentioned at all. I understand we have a lot of story to get through, but the other cats are skimmed over and we don't get to know anyone (besides Yellowfang, Raggedpelt, Brokentail, and Foxheart). In other Super Editions (such as Bluestar's Prophecy and Crookedstar's Promise), all the charecters, not just the important ones, are well described and come alive in the story.
Finally, Raggedpelt and Yellowfang are mates while Yellowfang is a medicane cat apprentice, and only break up after Yellowfang becomes a full medicane cat. They both act like this is okay—that medicane cat apprentices are allowed to have mates. However, look at Leafpool! While she was an apprentice, Cinderpelt constantly warned her that medicane cats AND their apprentices are not allowed to have mates!
Other than these minor flaws in the story, Yellowfang's Secret is overall an amazing and suspenseful book. I would highly recomend to any reader who enjoys fantasy and adventure stories about cats. I would also recommend reading Erin Hunter's other series Seekers (about three bears searching for a new home) and Survivors (about a lone dog forms a dog pack). I hope this review was helpful.

Lionblaze was sleeping. The golden ThunderClan tom was dreaming he was in the Dark Forest. He skidded to a halt in the marshy grassland, realizing the cats around him were Dark Forest spirits: Tigerstar, Hawkfrost, Brokenstar, Thistleclaw, Darkstripe, Clawface, Hawkheart, Snowtuft, Shredtail, Silverhawk, Mapleshade, Maggottail, Scourge, Bone, and.... Willowfur? Was Willowfur really here? It was true this cat was a rogue, and she lacked belief in StarClan, yet she was here. Willowfur had a ruthless and tragic nature, and she was Scourge's mate, a former BloodClanner and exile from RiverClan. But she was not dead. In fact, she was still living the life as a rogue plotting revenge with a band of rogues. This cat had a bad reputation and nature. Her light brown pelt was blackened by the shadows, and her blue eyes glinted with ambition. She had dreamed of ruling the Clan like her half-father, Tigerstar. But Scourge was nowhere, a spirit out of reach. And yet he was here? Lionblaze then knew why they were here. These were the cats in the possible future. There were no StarClan cats here, just evil deceased cats, all future versions of their living or dead selves. Lionblaze padded forward. His eyes shone in fear. He may be unstoppable, but in a dream, he could be killed simply, most likely by Tigerstar or Brokenstar or Willowfur or Scourge. Lionblaze spoke. Lionblaze: WHY'S THERE A BUNCH OF EVIL DEAD CATS HERE! SCOURGE? WILLOWFUR? TIGERSTAR? WHAT THE HECK MAN!!! Darkstripe: We've been waiting for you, Golden Cat.. hehe Lionblaze: WHAT?! GULP GULP GULP GULP GULP GULP Willowfur: Ah, you snake-hearted fool. Still having faith in your "StarClan" I see, or so is it? Hmm.... let's see what I can do about that. Scourge? Bring him. Now. Scourge: Yep *steps forward* (My teeth will soon sink into his throat) What are you doing here, Forest Fool? Lionblaze: *stares at future Willowfur* Bitter as always, I see? Willowfur: Silence! How dare you defy me, mousebrain! Lionblaze: I may be mousebrained, but at least I never did anything to hurt my Clan, your highness. I fear you. Willowfur: You are now my slave, golden tom. Lionblaze: *runs off*

And l found two inappropriate ads! A m@le sl@ve and a r@pe. I told them that there were kids here. They covered them up wih a blank. I told them that what they did was very responsible of them (deleting their posts). If we have positions, l would like to be a person who looks for s e x ads, follows them, and politely ask them to delete the post. <P>Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
