Overview

After the sharp-eyed Jay and the roaring Lion, peace will come on Dove's gentle wing.

Three ThunderClan cats, Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Dovepaw, are prophesied to hold the power of the stars in their paws. Now they must work together to unravel the meaning behind the ancient words of the prophecy.

As Jayfeather tackles his new responsibilities as the Clan's sole medicine cat and Lionblaze trains his apprentice in the ways of the warrior cats, Dovepaw hones her own unique ability and tries to use it for the good of ThunderClan. But the dark shadows that have preyed on the Clan for many moons still lurk just beyond the forest. Soon a mysterious visitor will walk in one cat's dreams, whispering promises of greatness, with results that will change the future of ThunderClan in ways that no cat could have foreseen.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Julia Beiker
The young Thunderclan cat, Dovepaw, takes center stage as her prophesied ability saves her follow cats. Unfortunately she must keep her special talent a secret even from her trusted sister, IvyPaw because only a selected few can know. As Dovepaw almost bursts with the coveted secret, IvyPaw finds her true gift in her sleep only to discover later that some gifts should never be unwrapped. Action packed suspense and life threatening disasters keeps the story moving even though it feels confusing in parts because I had not read previous books in the series. Since they build on each other, I suggest reading the books in order. A high level imagination is required to visualize the movements and characteristics given to these independent warrior cats. They have nothing in common with a household cat. I did find the originality of the plot and how it leads to the climax combined with the strong male and female leads to the appeal of both boys and girls. The overwhelming popularity of Erin's series shows that young readers have a sophisticated palate and crave plot driven stories with a twist of the unbelievable. This book is part of the "Warriors" series. Reviewer: Julia Beiker

First the book: OMG I absolutely loved this book! It was so amazing. I loved with Tigerstar and Hawkfrost coming from the Dark Forest to train cats that are still alive. This book was so absorbing and i finished it in two days! It is no dissapointment, just like all the other excellent warrior books. Ivypaw is jealous of Dovepaw and Hawkfrost starts to train her in her dreams!!! I liked Ivypaw in the other book so i hope she doesn't become like evil with Tigerstar. I also LOVE Tigerheart!!!&lt;3 He is great and Tigerstar is training him also. But he doesn't know that Tigerstar is evil. Also, there is alot of hints that Tigerheart likes Dovepaw. And i also think that Dovepaw likes him! They are a cute couple. But i don't know how they could ever be. People are saying that Icecloud likes Lionblaze. I didn't really catch this in the book. I don't know...=) But i think they would make a cute couple and i think Lionblaze maybe should get a mate, it might him calm down sometimes! Idk lolz =) I was hoping that Lionblaze and Heathertail would be together because they are perfect together but i guess thats not gonna happen! Breezepelt is NOT a good mate for Heathertail!! In the next book i hope Dovepaw and Ivypaw recieve their warrior names. I want Jayfeather to take on an apprentcie,too. And one more thing...i feel sooo bad for Briarpaw (later Briarlight) in this book!!! She would've made an excellent warrior!!! I loved her and still do but she can't be a warrior. My guess is she may become Jayfeather's apprentice. So, you NEED to read this book. But remember, if u have not read the other books you need to read them first! -Warrior101

I must admit, Hunter is starting to captivate me once again. I didn't like Po3 (with exception of Sunrise), and I thought The Fourth Apprentice was a little bland, but this book is anything but. I think the angle of Dovepaw's POV provided a lot of useful insight, particularly regarding her feeling towards the prophecy. She hates being used as a tool, and it will take some time for her to get used to her powers the way Lionblaze and Jayfeather have. Speaking of those two, I have really been enjoying them lately. Jayfeather is as sharp, witty, and lovable as always, and Lionblaze is maturing up nicely. We also get hints of some romance between Lionblaze and Cinderheart, which I would support wholeheartedly. As Cinderheart is the reincarnation of Cinderpelt (who was in love with Firestar he whole life), she should get all aspects of a warriors life, including having a mate. On a weakly related note, where is all the Lionblaze x Icecloud coming from? Has it been hinted in the books also, or am I missing something? But I digress. Anyways, I think that having the perspective of Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Dovepaw adds a lot of depth to the book. I hear we may be getting a Flametail POV in the next book, so that should be exciting, also. We may see a little more about Tigerheart, who I personally don't like. I hate how he seems to make advances on Dovepaw (I am against cross-clans, except for Graystripe XD), and he seems weak-willed if he is taking lessons from Tigerstar. Ahh, Tigerstar. I love how the series is using him. His way of manipulating weaknesses is genius, and I can't wait to see who else is being trained in their dreams. Ivypaw is turning into one of my favorite characters, what with her "I love my sister, but she's pissing me off," mantra. I wonder what will happen when and if she learns the truth about Hawkfrost and Tigerstar. I'm hoping for something that pulls in Lionblaze and Brambleclaw, such as one or both of them learning about this and putting a stop to it. If it were both, it may build something between Lionblaze and Brambleclaw, which would be nice because Brambleclaw doesn't seem particularly close to anyone in the clan right now. Another reason I can't wait for 'Night Whispers' is because of the way Hunter answers questions. To many inquiries posed about the future, she answered, "You'll see in 'Night Whispers'." This is greatly building the anticipation. The third book of the arc often seem to be turning points in this series, most notably in 'The New Prophecy'. No one can say the tension is loose right now. We have Thunderclan and Shadowclan at each other's throats for a battle that Ivypaw unintentionally started for Tigerstar, ill feelings for Lionblaze and Jayfeather from Dovepaw, who feels like nothing but a tool. Last, but not by any means least, there are the cats that are training in the Dark Forest, like Breezepelt, Ivypaw, and Tigerheart. Breezepelt in particular is a very interesting character. His life, to put it bluntly, sucks. I can't wait to see just how far he'll go to get his (illogical, in my opinion) revenge. Overall, I found this book a great installment into an improving series, and it is definitely worth a read.

After the sharp-eyed jay and the roaring lion, peace will come on dove's gentle wing.this prophecy was given to Dovepaw by the Starclan warrior and medicine cat Yellowfang. Doveaw doesn't remember it though. In this book, Dovepaw and her littermate, Ivypaw grow farther apart. Ivypaw is being traind by warriors from the Place of No Stars and doesn't know that they are bad. Her jealousy towards her sister grows as Dovepaw spends more time with Lionblaze and Jayfeather. Firestar knows who the three are. Russtefur dies over that strip of grassy land between ThunderClan and ShadowClan territory. Lionblaze and Jayfeather wonder,"Did StarClan really send that message to an apprentice who's never shown any connection to them before, or was it cats from the Dark Forest?" Night whispers is sure to be full of love and betrayal as we learn more about the cat who it was named after, and the next battle is sure to be even more riveting.

alexyz_timit_alt More than 1 year ago
gosh that title is spooky, ominous, foreshawdowing and yet thrilling. remember in firestar's special edition, where there's a cat named echo? Maybe the title has something to do with skyclan!?! It could be Skywatcher, but he's pretty old. Wait a sec, is he they one who gave they prophecy abou the three?! It's been a while so maybe it could be tinykit on the cover! Echosong has green eyes, so it can't be her,.... I can't wait for the 23rd! as many other writers have thought I wonder what happened to holly leaf. I too cried when I thought she died, but perhaps she suvived!!! I feel sorry for ivypaw. She probably feels outshined. Hollyleaf and I can relate to that. A thought just occered to me. If hollyleaf got out alive, maybe she found purdy, the cts in the mountians, or maybe even midnight!!!!!! Midnight confuses me though. She was in a meeting with star clan, but she also walks with the living. And she's a badger!!!! I think that the writers just make this up as they go along, because in one book, they wrote ,"three kits with tigerstar and firestars blood", or something like that. She's a great author, don't get me wrong, but one's mind shall wander dark questions if they let it....

First off, this is probably the BEST series I have ever read! I have read all the books including manga. They are interesting and mesmerizing. I had been anticipating Fading Echoes since the name was first announced. I really want to know what happened to Hollyleaf since it was never fully explained if she survived. The Erins hinted that nobody really did know what happened to her. What do you think? Well, apart from the mysterious Hollyleaf situation, what about Lionlaze? I think he and Cinderheart would be the cutest couple ever! If you are this far in the series, then you must know about Dovepaw. She IS one of the Three, but what about her sister? What happens to Ivypaw? In Fading Echoes, you hear about Ivypaw's jealousy. Do you think she has good reasons to be angry? All these questions are left unanswered unless you read this AMAZING book! Hats off to the Erins for another great addition to the series! *~Scarheart~*

Another very absorbing book by the Erin Hunter authors. And what a cliff hanger! Can't wait to read the next one in the series. Though I wondered why the intrusion from the Dark Side had not been revealed to all clan members so they could be more aware and not fall into traps, which seems to be happening a lot. All this secrecy has done nothing other than cause more damage in the long run.

The cover illustrations look very exciting I wonder where Lionblaze and Dovepaw are heading too; I do not remember them crossing any log (except to the island) before. I am very curious to who is on the cover, he reminds me of Ashfur except, he does not look very old. According to the last book, a dark time is coming for the clans, and when Jayfeather saw cats from The Dark Forest it made me think, they were going to come out of hiding and attack the clans. Surely, there are enough evil cats to end the clans Especially with Tigerstar and Hawkfrost training them. I still wonder if the evil cats come out of hiding and The Three having to fight them off is their destiny. Surely, it cannot be that simple I say that they have to use their individual powers to solve problems facing themselves and then all together, so they would have to learn how to cooperate with each other again. If the other cats from all four clans were to find out about their powers I would wonder what they would do to them. Would they banish them or make new clans of their names, Lionclan, Doveclan, and Jayclan. That would be very exciting, except how would they choose who goes to who is clan? What about Hollyleaf I do not possibly think she would be sent to The Dark Forest! I wonder, since she died in the tunnels, if she would resemble Falling Leaves and just travel through the tunnels for the rest of eternity. For heaven's sake, they cannot make anything too bad happen to her, many people must have cried when she died, I did! I am looking forward to this book. I want it in my hands now so I can be caught up with the adventures and feel like I am my own warrior experiencing everything. Please allow March 23 to come faster! If you would want to read this book, I would ask you to read The Fourth Apprentice Book #1 before, so you would not be too far behind. Love, Fireripple of Iceclan

Ivypool padded towards Toadstep ready to go to the gathering. Rosepetal went up to her brother, she was heavy with Foxleap and her kits. Just then Mousewhisker touched noses with his mate Icecloud as their two kits raced around them, Rainkit and Shrewkit. Rainkit looks like Ferncloud except with amber eyes and Shrewkit looks like his father. Squirrelflight touched noses with Bramblestar and groomed him as Flamekit and Petalkit played with the other kits. Woodfoot went up to his old mentor Ivypool and Larksong followed. "Fogpaw would of wanted to go," Woodfoot meowed, after 3 quarter moons of Fogpaw's death the tom missed his brothr. "Hey Ivypool we are going," Toadstep whispered in her ear, they were going to the gathering and soon they got there. Ivypool and Toadstep joined a group of warriors. "A Shadowclan patrol chased off a fox a half moon ago," meowed Poppyfall of Shadowclan. "Wow! Was the fox muscular?" Asked Leafpool, after the great battle the she-cat left with Crowfeather to Windclan and fitted in well there. "I was on the patrol and it was a big tom. We had ti put up a real fight!" Meowed Dawnpelt. "Let the gathering begin!" Meowed Mistystar. "Riverclan has some news to report, we now have 4 more kits in our clan! Welcome Sunkit, Waterkit, Oakkit, and Frostkit!" She meowed and beckoned Blackstar forward. "Shadowclan has some news to report. One of our patrols chased off a fox also welcome two new warriors and a apprentice. Thistlefoot, Mintsplash, and Leopardpaw!" His meow was loud as cats meowed congrats. He beckoned Bramblestar forward. "Thunderclan has news . We now have two more warriors and 2 pairs of kits! Welcome Woodfoot and Larksong! One pair of kits was Flamekit and Petalkit! The other Shrewkit and Rainkit!" He meowed loudly and beckoned Onestar forward. "Windclan has news as well. We chased off a dog. Also we now have 3 more warriors! Redwing, Snowpool, and Greyfoot!" He shouted. All the cats started chatting again. Ivypool found Whitewing congratulate the new Windclan cats. Hint to next post: the sun disapears. Hello Sol.

Hi me again. This book was just as good. Its been a while since Lionblaze and Dovepaw went on the great journey to bring the water back from the beavers. Ivypaw is feeling a bit jealous for Dovepaw's attention from Lionblaze and Firestar and thinks that they think she's a better warrior than her. Dovepaw just wants to be a normal apprentice without being called away to disscuss the prophesy every day. Then Ivypaw does the unthinkable, and puts herself, and her clan, in the worst danger ever. - Spottedtalon - Windclan
