Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
Since this is the first "Warriors" book I have read, I was pleased to find that the author includes enough information before the first chapter that I could understand what was happening from the start. In this addition to the series, Ravenpaw decides to leave the security of his association with the Thunderclan and move to the Farm. There, he lives with his friend Barley, enjoying the kind of peaceful life a cat is suppose to have. He enjoys the calm nights, hearing the rooster, and the safe feeling he has all the time. Then, one day, a group of cats arrive and ask to stay with them for a few days. After they leave, the Thunderclan returns with bad intentions. Ravenpaw must draw on his past to defend his home, his friend, and himself. Books written in graphic format are favorites of mine! They are perfect for students who are reluctant readers and never seem to finish a book on their own. Young adults who want to read anything they can get their hands on also will enjoy the graphics, the exhilarating story, and the fast-paced text. The story is suitable for both boys and girls, and it is a good choice for children who like adventure stories and animal tales. The wonderful artwork adds much to the story. It is a fun read with a story that moves quickly and smoothly. Reviewer: Kathie M. Josephs

Meet the Author

Erin Hunter is inspired by a love of cats and a fascination with the ferocity of the natural world. In addition to having great respect for nature in all its forms, Erin enjoys creating rich mythical explanations for animal behavior. She is also the author of the bestselling Seekers and Survivors series.

Biography

Erin Hunter is the nom de plume of three British writers who create enthralling, animal-centric YA fantasies in the tradition of Brian Jacques's Redwall books. In 2003, they launched their bestselling Warriors series with Into the Wild, the story of a domesticated kitten who leaves the comforts of his human home to join a family of feral cats living in the woods. Introducing a captivating world where rival cat clans struggle for survival, the book was an immediate sensation with animal- and adventure-loving preteens. Since its debut, Warriors has become a genuine publishing phenomenon, spawning a string of six-book miniseries, each with its own distinct story arc.

The Erin Hunter collaboration is an unusual but highly successful one. Characters and story ideas emanate from editor Victoria Holmes, who keeps track of previous plot lines, ensures continuity, and coordinates the details of a complex and growing cast of characters. Kate Cary and Cherith Baldry take turns writing individual books; then everything is vetted again through Holmes, who checks carefully to make sure the stories are told in a single, unified voice. With different writing styles at work, this would seem a daunting task. However, in a 2006 interview, Holmes explained her modus operandi: "I think of it as being able to "speak Erin Hunter", like speaking a different language, and after working on [so many] scripts, I know pretty much at once if a line or phrase doesn't sound right."

Although the Erin Hunter books are written for young readers, they do not shy away from difficult material. The animals face life-threatening dangers and experience pain, grief, and loss -- sometimes even treachery within their own ranks. But the authors are always careful to reinforce positive messages about family, friendship, loyalty, and love. Independently, Holmes, Cary, and Baldry stay busy with their own writing and editing projects; but in 2008, they reunited for a second animal fantasy series. Seekers: The Quest Begins features a trio of bears from different species (black, polar, and grizzly), who join together for an adventure-filled odyssey that will change their lives forever.

Good To Know

Fun facts about "Erin Hunter" and the Warrior books, plus advice for aspiring writers:
Cherith Baldry and Kate Cary have always loved cats -- and writing fantasy stories! Cherith is particularly interested in the stories of King Arthur, with all those glorious battles, knights, and a courtly code of behavior. Kate is fascinated by animal interaction and the way you can read all sorts of hidden motivation into what cats do. She's also not afraid of describing the goriest scenes!

Says Victoria Holmes, "I love being one of the Erins and frequently dream of being a cat running through a forest when I am coming up with new story lines. Teaming up with Kate and Cherith on the Warriors books is an unconventional way of working, but we love writing the books together and it means we can produce them much faster than a single writer could."

They came up with the single name, Erin Hunter, to avoid confusing their readers by having books from the same series filed in different places on the bookshelves.

Erin's advice for aspiring writers: "Read, read, and read some more! Make sure you read a wide variety of stories: fantasy stories teach you about making up completely new worlds, crime-solving stories teach you about handling a complicated plot, stories with lots of characters teach you how to describe relationships. Also, write as many stories as you can, even if no one else reads them. And remember that the best inspiration comes from what's around you -- Kate and Cherith go for long walks through the woods to find new locations for the cats to explore. They also spend hours watching their cats -- and other people -- to see how they behave in certain situations."

    A Review on Shattered Peace

    Reading this book has given me the chance to read a book about mystery and about my favorite animals... cats! Ravenpaw and Barley might not stand a chance against the rogues to win back their home at the barn,but when you read the book the answer will be revealed.I recommend this book because it is very easy to follow, it is extremely entertaining, and it is simple for young kids because of its comic form.I have enjoyed this book very much and it was worth reading it. I strongly suggest reading the other manga series if you find pleasure in reading Shattered Peace.

    Ravenpaw and Barley: Safe At Last?

    I have read the whole Warriors Series, and by far I think this book is one of the most intriguing books of the series. I think this book is good for readers who are still developing since it is a comic book. When Ravenpaw and Barley move into the farm they think they have found peace, plenty of mice, and happiness. If you want to find out if they find what they think they have, you'll have to read the book yourself! If you want a book that has an intense story and mystery, this book is for you! Since this book is a comic book it is very easy to read, especially for the younger ones who are reading small chapter books. These books are terrific, especially this one!

    Warrior Cats Books Opinion/Recommendation

    I recommed the Warriors series to anyone who enjoys mysteries, adventures, and, of course, cats! My daughter has almost every single Warrior cats book, and she has read them over 10 times each! She just loves them! Anyways, Shattered Peace is about a Warrior cat from Thunderclan who ran away because of a cat trying to take the forest. His name is Ravenpaw. He now lives at a barn with another cat named Barley. Their life is peaceful, until one day when some strange cats come to their barn! Well, thats a bit about that book! So, read the rest of it to find out what happens!
