Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
What is it like to be a warrior cat? To survive in a world filled with danger and destruction? One day Stormkit and Oakkit are born to the RiverClan. The brothers happily explore their new world until the fateful day when Stormkit's face is disfigured beyond recognition. Soon his mother rejects him, and the clan renames the cat as Crookedkit. Feeling rejection from his own mother and clan, Crookedkit decides to leave for a better life. While he is away from RiverClan, Crookedkit discovers that his destiny lies with his own clan. He will be a great warrior and leader one day; duty calls him home. Soon Crookedkit returns to the clan and becomes an apprentice. He is self-conscious about his disfigurement but determined to be a great warrior. But in his desire to be great, Crookedkit makes a promise to Mapleshade, whom he trains with on a daily basis. One day Crookedkit discovers he has been training in The Dark Forest. Will his clan ever forgive him? Or has he lost all chance of being a leader? Finally the cat receives his new name, Crookedstar, the day he becomes a warrior. He falls in love with Willowbreeze and prepares to be a father. But the promise Crookedstar made to the dark side will haunt him forever. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.

This was an amazing and almost heart wrenching book. One of my favorites out of the warriors series. I cried at one part, and laughed at another. You truly feel for the charactors. Truely a must have for warrior fans.

I loved this! I learned so much about Crookedstar! If you don't know if you should buy it, do! It's amazing! It will make you laugh, cry, and overall just amaze you! One of the best! Buy it! :) PS to all the RPers, they are sites for that. People want to know if they should buy the book. Not which clans are open. Stop ruining the reviews and get a life!

It's a great book! I like the mentions of Mapleshade... her name always seemed familiar to me... I wouldn't reccomend this book for new Warriors readers. You should read rhe newest Warriors books before you read super editions.

This book is my favorite super edition in Warriors. I totally recommend it. It is a great book! Stormkit is ruined. No longer will his mother love him. No longer could he hope to become leader. Or so he thought. Stormkit was always an adventerous kit in RiverClan. He was a son of Rainflower (who is not evil; only overcome by grief) and Shellheart. One day Stormkit ventures out of the camp and on to Sunningrocks. Goosefeather, the ThunderClan medicine cat, saw Stormkit after Stormkit threatened him off his territory although it was really ThunderClan territory. He fell and broke his jaw on a stepping stone. Rainflower, overcome with grief, would not let the newly named Crookedkit in her nest but continued nursing Oakkit. This was the beginning of a rough life for Crookedkit. He spent much of his life trying to prove that he was good. He showed those who didn't believe in him. Crookedstar was tempted his whole life by Mapleshade, a Dark Forest warrior who made Crookedstar sacrifice everything he loved including his mate and kits. A lot like what Bluestar went through. Crookedstar was a tough cat. Just what RiverClan needed as a leader.

*This book is so good because of the sweet suspence and the deadly never ending promise. It'll give you a book to put in your hands every night, until you finish it of course.

This book was soo good.. I finished it a day after I got it. I've read all of the super edition books & I definitely think this is the best book in the super edition series. Very sad, but the incredible way it was written makes all the more enjoyable... fantastic book!

Crookedkit is lonely and abandoned when his mother rejects him after an accident on the rocks. When Mapleshade, an old cat of RiverClan, enters his dreams, he feels as if a miracle has occured. Little does he know, Mapleshade was cast out of Starclan, and resides in the Dark Forest. He promises her loyalty to his clan above everything he holds dear. When tragedy strikes multiple blows, Crookedstar must question his morals. This book is well-written and leaves a reader wishing for more. I would like to speak to rpers: This is a BOOK REVIEW! Get a website or find another way to contact each other, because some of us want to find out about books! My rant is over. If you want this book, get it. You won't regret it.

I read this and loved it, but it can be a tear jerker! Be prepared to cry if you are emotional.

Could u guys keep the role play to the PC? Some people would like to see the reviews to the book. Dont get me wrong the Warriors is awesome but the reviews might help bring other people to the series and possibly bring more rp friends. Got it?

I like the cat warroir books there are some of the bad times and the good times they face in these books
RitaSkeeter More than 1 year ago
Crookedstar was a great and loyal leader who always wanted what was best for his clan. There were a lot of tense moments as well as sad ones. I promise you won't be disappointed with this book! I love the Super Edition Series books because they go deeper into the lives of the great cats of the clans.

Shadow Rox, you are very right. Im fine with RPs and real reviews, but people posting random and innaproppriate stuff really ticks me off.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
This book was amazing but very sad. It had it's funny moments, its moments where it made you proud, its moments when it made you want to kill on eof the cats, and its heart wrentching moments. You easily get attached to these books, and cry at the sad moments, and sometimes get mad when someone dies, i would defilatly suggest these books to any warriors fan. -BrambleTail

Also, might I add, all you people out there that are writing comments that heve nothing to do with the book need to knock it off. I don't mind roleplayers, their post are interesting and it's nice to see people being creative and making their own characters, but people who comment stuff like "By the way... IM AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!$$$$$$$$$$$$ " reeeaaaaaly make me mad. If you havn't read this book and your just here to screw around then LEAVE. I want nothing to do with you or your comments. Plus you people who rage about role players, your not much better. I can understand it when you leave it at the bottom of your review, but making an entierly new comment so you can do nothing but complain, now thats just rediculous. Two more things I might add, before you people start rageing, I am aware that i'm being a hippocrit right now, but this is going to be the one and only time I do this and you people do it constantly. The second thing is that you people can't occuse me of standing up for role players because i am one. That is not true. I do not role play here. That dosn't mean I don't at all, but I don't here. People come here to read comments that help them make desicions on whether or not to buy a book, and occasional role play. They don't come here to read comments like this. One more thing, those who say that role players should go to specific sites, think. Not all people have acsses to those sites. Like myself. Most sites have age limits or you need an e-mail to join. I 'm not old enough to join most sites nor do I have an e-mail. The only role plays I ever do are text rps and rps on google docs. So people, please, think before you comment. ~Shadow Rox
