Overview

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

The deadly battle between ThunderClan and ShadowClan is over, but the aftermath still echoes around all four Clans. As Dovepaw grapples with the knowledge that there are realms—and cats—her senses cannot reach, Jayfeather and Lionblaze are determined to figure out how StarClan could have allowed this fight to happen. Jayfeather soon finds the answer in the darkest of places, and he and Lionblaze prepare to do whatever they can to staunch the flow of evil into ThunderClan.

The ties that bind the Clans are slowly breaking in the face of the greatest threat that the warriors—and the warrior code—have ever known. As leaf-bare closes its grip upon the territories, Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Dovepaw realize just how close the battle is, and how far they are from being able to succeed. And before the prey can run again, one more cat will be lost to the fight.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
Since the 2003 launch of this popular fantasy series, more than thirty "Warriors" books have been written about these feral cats—including novels, mangas, special editions, and field guides. Wonder how one woman does it all? Truth is, she doesn't. "Erin Hunter" is the pen name of series originator Vicky Holmes and collaborators Kate Cary, Cherith Baldry, and Tui Sutherland. Vicky develops all of the characters and storylines and provides them to her writers, then edits the manuscripts to ensure consistency of authorial voice and story arc. It seems an effective strategy for this authorial team, as they draw heartfelt feline characters who wrestle with remarkably human problems and concerns like family, commitment, honesty, and devotion as they struggle with clan affiliations, territorial conflicts and survival. This book is the third addition to the "Omen of the Stars" line in the "Warriors" feline fantasy series. Although the authors provide some background of the events from the previous book, readers would better start (at least) with the first "Omen of the Stars" book. Series fans will appreciate the inclusion of an adventure game at the book's end—and should be sure to check out the online game available at warriorcats.com, too. This story spotlights Jayfeather, Lionblaze and Dovepaw in their attempts to protect the clans from the evil, secretive cats of the Dark Forests. Reviewer: Heidi Hauser Green
