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

Yellowfang's Secret is coming out on October 9th. This book was amazing. The only thing thats better is The Last Hope. I believe everyone's pissed off that Erin Hunter is not continuing the Warriors Series. (She is, but shes doing a series about the Dawn of the Clans. But Basically, shes not going back to Lionblaze or Dovewing, or anyone else ever again) I think its horrible that Erin's stopped writing this amazing series, just to be replaced with Survivors. The 5th and final Warriors Series is called Voyage Of The Lost, and will be coming out in late 2013. So i have some spoilers, for The Forgotten Warrior and The Last Hope. Stop Reading Now if u dont like spoilers. Spoilers For The Forgotten Warrior -Molekit and Cherrykit become apprentinces -Brightheart is expecting kits (Jayfeather isnt happy about it) - Sol arrives to ThunderClan (Duh, Duh, Dun) -Ivypool and Dovewing get lost in the Tunnels, Holyleaf finds them, and they return to camp -Hollyleaf admits to the clan that she killed Ashfur -Yellowfang comes to Jayfeather in a dream, and tells him to tell Cinderheart that she used to be Cinderpelt -Cinderheart finds out about her old life, and thinks she should be a medicine cat again - Sorreltail gives birth to Liltkit and Seedkit -Sol plots an attack with WindClan, to Battle with Thunderclan - ThunderClan beats Windclan Spoilers For The Last Hope -Dawnpelt blames Jayfeather for Falmetail's death -Brightheart gives birth to three kits, Snowkit, Dewkit, and Amberkit -Firestar is the Fourth cat in the Prophecy -Flametail comes to all the Medicine cats and tells them how he died -Jayfeather reunites starClan (No Borders in StarClan anymore) -Jayfeather and the other Medicine cats bring their leaders to the island to talk about the Dark Forrest. And to tell them about The Three's Power's. The Clans train and com,e together to battle The Dark Forrst with StarClan -Hollyleaf dies in the batle by BrokenStar -Ferncloud dies (Unknown) -Mousefur Dies (Falling off a cliff while battling a cat) -Spottedleaf dies -Tigerstar is destroyed by Firestar -A burning tree falls, and kills Firestar -The Clans And StarClan beat the Dark Forrest -Brambleclaw becomes Bramblestar -Bramblestar makes Squirrelflight his deputy Ending Paragraph: There will be three cats, kin of your kin, with the power of stars in their paws. They will find a fourth, and the battle between light and dark will be won. A new leader will rise from the shadows of his death, and the Clans will survive beyond the memories of his memories. This is how it has been, and how it will always be.

Hi my name is LionBlade of StarClan. I loved the forgotten warrior it was a good mix of action, romance, and tragedy. The book was amazing. However, I would have loved to see LionBlaze and CinderHeart get together even though BumbleStripe and DoveWing are together which is still alot of romance. I also love that HollyLeaf a main character who supposedly died in the 6th book of the 3rd series came back. I think all of you will enjoy this book even if you don't like cats i'm talking to a few people in my class who make fun of me. I hope you enjoyed my report.

When I started this fourth series, I lost interest very quickly. It felt like the Hunters were just going through the motions, and the only reason I kept reading was to say I finished the Warriors series. But this book totally got me interested again! It was interesting and thrilling. My friends and I agreed that this was by far the best installment in the series so far. Yes, I would defenitely recommend this book. It is good for kids of all ages. I hope the Erin Hunters will continue to write more books as good as these!

I think that the forgotten warrior might be somehow connected with leafpool because earlier I saw something that said the cat on the ground in the background is leafpool chasing a squirrel.

the cat on the cover is Lionblaze, and Hollyleaf is also in the book, and some speculate that she is the forgotten warrior

eek! i cant wait one more moment!!! all the love stories and battles to be! Tigerheart and Dovewing have everyone's heart clenching in suspense on what will become of the two(at least thats just me!! anyone else???). Lionblaze and Cinderheart have to get back together and have kits..etc!!! Ivypool and going in the DF will get even MORE dangerous and what about Biarlight and Blossomfall? Will Blossomfall get over her mother's favoritism?? all the tension will keep us wraped up in suspense to the end!!! i love warrrios soooo much!!! :D
