There is peace at last between the warrior Clans, and Firestar is proud of the strength and unity of the cats he leads in ThunderClan. All four forest Clans are thriving, training new warriors and keeping their boundaries without conflict.

But Firestar's dreams are haunted by wailing cats fleeing a terrible disaster. With unexpected help from an old kittypet friend, he discovers a shocking secret: StarClan, the warrior ancestors who guide his paw steps, have lied to him.

Firestar is faced with the hardest decision of his life. Can he really turn his back on the forest that has become his home and embark on a perilous quest to discover a dark truth—one that has been buried beyond the memory of living cats? Whatever he finds at the end of his journey, he knows that nothing can ever be the same again.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meagan Albright
This book is a fantastic extension of the popular "Warrior" series. Fans of the series will welcome the newest edition and the continuing adventures of Firestar. Firestar, a warrior cat and the leader of his clan, is plagued by dreams of cats in peril that lead him to question the traditions and the history of the warrior cats in order to help a long lost tribe of cats. Firestar faces a complex and difficult decision: can he leave his clan to aid an unknown entity that defies and confounds his belief system? The clans are experiencing a period of peace, but that fragile harmony may be threatened by Firestar's actions. The ability and willingness of Firestar to question authority and doubt the longstanding spiritual beliefs of his fellow cats shows the evolution of the series, from simply entertaining to thought provoking adventures that will satisfy a wide range of readers. This book is recommended for purchase in school media centers and public libraries. Reviewer: Meagan Albright

Warriors Super Edition: Firestar's Quest

Chapter One

Firestar slid around the edge of a hazel thicket and paused to taste the air. The moon was nearly full, and he could see that he was close to where the stream followed the border with ShadowClan. He could hear its faint gurgling, and picked up traces of the ShadowClan scent markers.

The flame-colored tomcat allowed himself a soft purr of satisfaction. He had been leader of ThunderClan for three seasons, and he felt as if he knew every tree, every bramble bush, every tiny path left by mice and voles throughout his territory. Since the fearsome battle when the forest Clans had joined together to drive out BloodClan and their murderous leader, Scourge, there had been peace, and the long days of newleaf and greenleaf had brought plentiful prey.

But Firestar knew that somewhere in the tranquil night an attacker was lurking. He made himself concentrate, all his senses alert. He caught the scent of mouse and rabbit, the green scent of grass and leaves, and very faintly the reek of the distant Thunderpath. But there was something else. Something he couldn't identify.

He raised his head, drawing the breeze over his scent glands. At the same instant, a clump of bracken waved wildly, and a dark shape erupted from the middle of the curling fronds. Startled, Firestar spun to face it, but before he could raise his paws to defend himself the shape landed heavily on his shoulders, knocking him to the ground.

Summoning all his strength, Firestar rolled onto his back and brought up his hind paws to thrust his attacker away. Above him he could make out broad, muscular shoulders, amassive head with dark tabby markings, the glint of amber eyes. . . .

Firestar gritted his teeth and battered even harder with his hind paws. A forepaw lashed out toward him and he flinched, waiting for the strike.

Suddenly the weight that pinned him down vanished as the tabby cat sprang away with a yowl of triumph. "You didn't know I was there, did you?" he meowed. "Go on, Firestar, admit it. You had no idea."

Firestar staggered to his paws, shaking grass seeds and scraps of moss from his pelt. "Bramblepaw, you great lump! You've squashed me as flat as a leaf."

"I know." Bramblepaw's eyes gleamed. "If you'd really been a ShadowClan invader, you would be crow-food by now."

"So I would." Firestar touched his apprentice on the shoulder with the tip of his tail. "You did very well, especially disguising your scent like that."

"I rolled in a clump of damp ferns as soon as I left camp," Bramblepaw explained. He suddenly looked anxious. "Was my assessment okay, Firestar?"

Firestar hesitated, struggling to push away the memory of Bramblepaw's bloodthirsty father, Tigerstar. When he looked at the young apprentice, it was too easy to recall the same broad shoulders, dark tabby fur, and amber eyes that belonged to the cat who had been ready to murder and betray his own Clanmates to make himself leader.

"Firestar?" Bramblepaw prompted.

Firestar shook off the clinging cobwebs of the past. "Yes, Bramblepaw, of course. No cat could have done better."

"Thanks, Firestar!" Bramblepaw's amber eyes shone and his tail went straight up in the air. As they turned toward the ThunderClan camp, he glanced back at the ShadowClan border. "Do you think Tawnypaw will be near the end of her apprentice training, too?"

Bramblepaw's sister, Tawnypaw, had been born in ThunderClan, but she had never felt at home there. She was too sensitive to the mistrust of cats who couldn't forget that she was Tigerstar's daughter. When her father had become leader of ShadowClan, she had left ThunderClan to be with him. Firestar always felt that he had failed her, and he knew how much Bramblepaw missed her.

"I don't know how they do these things in ShadowClan," he meowed carefully, "but Tawnypaw started her training at the same time as you, so she should be ready for her warrior ceremony by now."

"I hope so," Bramblepaw mewed. "I know she'll be a great warrior."

"You both will," Firestar told him.

On their way back to camp, Firestar felt as if every shadowy hollow, every clump of fern or bramble thicket, could be hiding the gleam of amber eyes. Whatever Tigerstar's crimes, he had been proud of his son and daughter, and his death had been particularly dreadful, with all nine lives ripped away at once by Scourge's sharpened claws. Was the massive tabby watching them now? Not from StarClan, for Firestar had never seen him in his dreams; the ThunderClan medicine cat, Cinderpelt, had never reported meeting him when she shared tongues with StarClan, either. Could there be another place for coldhearted cats who had been ready to use the warrior code for their own dark ambitions? If there was such a shadowed path, Firestar hoped he would never have to walk it—nor his lively apprentice. Bramblepaw was bouncing through the grass beside him, excited as a kit; surely he had shaken off the legacy of his father?

As they slipped down the ravine toward the camp, Bramblepaw halted, his gaze serious. "Was my assessment really okay? Am I good enough—"

"To be a warrior?" Firestar guessed. "Yes, you are. We'll hold your ceremony tomorrow."

Bramblepaw dipped his head respectfully. "Thank you, Firestar," he mewed. "I won't let you down." His eyes blazed; he gave a sudden bound into the air and pelted down the rest of the ravine to wait by the entrance to the gorse tunnel. Firestar watched him, amused. He could still remember when he had felt as if he had too much energy to contain in his four paws, when he felt as if he could run through the forest forever.

"You'd better get some sleep," he warned as he joined his apprentice. "You'll have to sit vigil tomorrow night."

"If you're sure, Firestar . . ." Bramblepaw hesitated, working his claws in the sandy ground. "I could find you some fresh-kill first."

Book Review Outline Book title and author: Firestar's Quest Warrior's Super Edition by Erin Hunter Title of review: The Exciting Journey Number of stars (1 to 5): 5 Introduction: All is peaceful between the clans the borders aren't being pushed but marked everyday. This is the first string of peace in seasons. Firestar, leader of ThunderClan, has been disturbed by strange dreams that haunt him, although he doesn't know what they mean. He finds help from an old friend and discovers that StarClan has lied to him. Now he is torn by his loyalty to his clan and the urge to help out the clan that was chased from its' home. Description and summary of main points: The four clans have been around for longer than any living cat could remember but what the clans don't know is that their used to be another clan, back at the beginning. They were chased away for some unknown reason and now many seasons later, Firestar is chosen by an ancient cat to help the clan that is no longer in the forest with the other four. Evaluation: This book kept me reading until I was too tired to stay awake. It was a little boring at the beginning, but got better as I discovered more and more about what had happened. This book has friendship, loyalty, and adventure all jammed in to make a great book. Conclusion: This is truly one of the best books I have ever read. Other than the having the names get mixed up once in a while it is really well written. Your final review: This is a great book that I would recommend to all teens and preteens with a love for cats and/or nature. I would also recommend reading the full first series before reading this one, that way things make more sense.

I love all the Warrior books but this is one of my favorites since you get to see a more detailed look at Firestar's relationship with Sandstorm. Which series one didn't cover. It's also very interesting and, even though they're cats, it shows you troubles and uncertainties that you experience in real life. Actually all Warrior books are like that. It's a book that'll have you hooked and eager to read more. I liked it so much that I got it from the library 4 times just to reread it and go back to some of my favorite scenes. I'm happy that I now own it. I diffidently recommend this book.

I loved this book! I've read all 16 books out so far in the Warrior series by Erin Hunter and thsi is my favourite one! If you enjoyed the first series with Rusty a kittypet and how he transforms into an amazing, loyal cat you'll like this one. As Firestar travels on a jouney with his mate Sandstorm you enter a whole new clan and a whole new perspective. Travel with Firestar as you encounter every hardship as if you were there.

This book was great! It was the first warriors book I'd ever read. I couldn't put it down! At first it was a bit hard to catch on. But I caught on. It's so intersting to know, ( warning, spoiler!) that there is another clan that was driven out of their home seasons ago. And also, this is great for info about what happened between the first and second Warriors series. read this! you'll love it! I couldn't get it out of my head for the next few nights!!!!!!!!!

This book is such an amazing book. It's full of adventure, smiles, tears, and mystery. If you like adventure the you will love this book. I could read it over and over again. The way the writer describes things really pulls you in. I would recommend this to those in middle school and up. It definitely teaches some life lessons.

Warriors is a great series and deserves more attention. And,probably,the only way is to make movies and TV shows based on the books. The website is one step toward all people knowing about Warriors. Many people comment on the idea such as Wetwhisker and myself,Swiftstream
