Overview

After the sharp-eyed jay and the roaring lion, peace will come. . . .

Four warrior Clans have shared the land around the lake as equals for many moons. But a prophecy foretells that three ThunderClan cats will hold the power of the stars in their paws. Jayfeather and Lionblaze know that they are two of the cats in the prophecy. Now the brothers must wait for a sign from StarClan to discover the identity of the third cat.

Meanwhile, Dovekit and Ivykit—kin of the great leader Firestar—are poised to become ThunderClan apprentices. Soon one sister will have an ominous dream—and will begin to realize that she possesses mystical skills unmatched by any other cat.

In the midst of a cruel season that threatens the lives of all four warrior Clans, bonds will be forged, promises made, and three young cats will start to unravel the secrets that bind them together.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Renee Farrah Vess
Cats from Riverclan, Windclan, Shadowclan, and Thunderclan are suffering due to a lack of water. The lake has essentially dried up, leaving only thin, muddy puddles and cracked dirt. Tempers flare and accusations arise from neighboring clans as they blame one another for the clan's discomfort and struggles. There is no relief in sight until an apprentice named Dovepaw has a vision of beavers building a dam far up the river. Cats Lionblaze and Jayfeather take this seriously, as they believe Dovepaw may be the third cat in the Starclan prophecy, and they keep her visions to themselves. They do voice a call for an investigation regarding the change in the water source for the lake. It is decided that two members from each clan will investigate the river's alleged obstruction, and hopefully return water to the lake. For the first time since the Great Journey the clans are traveling beyond their borders together and leaving their differences behind them. First in the "Warriors: Omen of the Stars:" series, early fantasy readers who enjoy books by Kathryn Lasky will fit naturally within the feline world created by Hunter. Reviewer: Renee Farrah Vess
