Overview

The end of the stars draws near.
Three must become four to battle the darkness that lasts forever. . . .

A divided StarClan has driven a treacherous rift between the four warrior Clans, and the spirits of the Dark Forest are gaining strength. As tensions reach a breaking point, an outsider suddenly appears in ThunderClan's midst, spreading discord and pushing the Clans even further apart. Now, with Clanmates turning against one another and a full-scale battle looming closer, the warrior cats will be forced to choose whose word they can trust—before it's too late.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kim Harris Thacker
Tensions between clans are rising in the fifth book in the "Warriors: Omen of the Stars" series, and no cat can put a paw out of line without his clanmates wondering where his loyalties lie. Yet secrets abound, especially in ThunderClan, for a prophecy states that it is only through the powers of four ThunderClan cats that the lake clans can win the battle against the Dark Forest. Three of the four prophecy cats have been identified: Medicine cat Jayfeather can appear to cats in their dreams and can also read their memories and emotions, warrior Lionblaze can't be harmed in battle, and warrior Dovewing can hear at incredible distances. But these three aren't the only ThunderClan cats with secrets. Ivypool spies in the Dark Forest and discovers some of her clanmates there, and Cinderheart learns that in a former life, she was a medicine cat. All these secrets can only lead to turmoil within ThunderClan and to a battle between clans. When Dovewing hears Sol, a rogue cat, telling WindClan that ThunderClan plans to attack, the situation seems bleak...until a forgotten warrior arrives to lead ThunderClan into battle. Not since Brian Jacques' "Redwall" series has such an enormous cast of animal characters been handled so well; yet where Jacques' books blur the line between what is animal and what is human, with mice toting swords, Hunter's cats are pure feline. Character development seems to be the purpose of this book, as the series' plot does not progress enough to warrant such a lengthy novel, complete with maps and character lists. Fans of the series will enjoy the Adventure Game at the end of the book. Reviewer: Kim Harris Thacker
