Overview

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

This manga-the fifth based on Hunter's immensely popular children's series-follows the adventures of the cat Sasha after she leaves the Tigerclan, horrified by Tigerstar's growing violence; it picks up where Warriors : Tigerstar and Sasha left off. Sasha wrestles with whether she should return to live among the "housefolk" or make a life for herself in the forest. Her travels take her to dangerous city streets, the suburbs and a boat, and allow her to make new friends. Along the way, she learns to value herself and trust her instincts. Hudson's artwork brings Sasha's emotional journey to life, showing each moment of fear, anxiety, contentment and joy. The cat's-eye perspective of many of the panels, in addition, add a dramatic, energizing element to the book. Jolley's story breaks no new ground, but he offers a nicely paced tale that should resonate with young adult readers struggling to find their own place in the world, as well as cat fanciers of any age. Girls may especially benefit from reading about Sasha's decision to walk away from the powerful Tigerstar. A twist at the end will leave fans eager for the next installment of Sasha's saga. (Jan.)

Gr 4–6—Sweet, sensitive Sasha leaves the forest and the ShadowClan after being betrayed by the cat clan's power-hungry leader, Tigerstar. Life without a clan for protection is difficult, though. Can she survive alone? The second volume in a graphic-novel adaptation of the popular series, this title should appeal to its fans, and the gripping plot may attract new ones. Though the cover claims that this is a "manga," the straightforward illustrations are drawn in a simple, realistic style. Purchase if the "Warriors" series is already popular.—Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

A thrilling and suspenseful book on the wicked Tigerstar and Sasha,the ex-kittypet.A great sequal to number one.Warriors fans who have read up to book three in the original series will know just how much Tigerstar wants the forest for himself.Tigerstar was once an honorable ThunderClan warrior,but kittypet Firestar,or previous Fireheart,trotted in as a new member and Tigerclaw had to drag back his plans on attacking his leader,Bluestar.Those who have read the original series also know that Tigerclaw had killed the ThunderClan deputy,Redtail,to become deputy himself.Those who know the warrior code know that the deputy becomes leader after the leader dies or retires.Then,hoping that noone would notice from the rogue attack,Tigerclaw slipped into Bluestar's den and attempted to murder her so he himself would become leader.But Fireheart and Graystripe stopped Tigerclaw.So those who know these things will ask many questions.For instance,why did Tigerstar show affection for Sasha,a kittypet?Why did Sasha leave her friend Shnuky for the forest?Why didn't Sasha stay with Tigerstar?Well,my fellow Warriors lovers,keep reading,and hope for our questions to be answered.

This is a great book, and I really enjoyed seeing another facet of the Warriors' world. I'd highly recommend it for Warriors fans, and cat lovers in general.

My 9th grade struggling reader chose this book for our reading intervention class library and loves it! The graphic novel format is inviting and the story moves along quickly. We are buying more books in the series as we can't always interest our struggling readers in fantasy.
