The Clans have finally arrived in their new home, following the prophecies of their warrior ancestors. The journey was difficult enough, but now they must struggle to establish territories and learn the hidden dangers of this unfamiliar world. Most importantly, Leafpaw knows they must find a replacement for the Moonstone -- a place to communicate with StarClan. Otherwise there will be no way to choose new leaders, no way to share medicine cat secrets, and no way to know whether the Clans are on the right path.
The future seems uncertain, and more than one cat is harboring sinister plans that could lead to violence and darkness. As all the warriors wait for a sign, some of them begin to realize that the threats they face in the forest may not be as perilous as the threats they face from within....
Brambleclaw stood at the top of the slope, gazing at the clawpricks of silver fire reflected in the lake below. The Clans had finally found their new home, just as Midnight had promised. StarClan was waiting for them, and they were safe from the Twoleg monsters at last.
Around him warriors from all four Clans murmured to each other, staring uneasily at the dark, unfamiliar space at the foot of the hill.
"It's impossible to tell what's down there in this light." Brightheart, a ginger-and-white ThunderClan warrior, swung around so that her one good eye could take in the whole of the landscape.
Her mate, Cloudtail, twitched his tail. "How bad can it be? Think what we've come through to get here. We can fight off anything on four legs."
"And what about Twolegs?" demanded Russetfur, the ShadowClan deputy.
"The journey has left us all tired and weak," Blackclaw of WindClan added. "Foxes and badgers could track us down easily when we're all out in the open like this."
For a moment Brambleclaw felt a tremor of fear. Then he braced his shoulders. StarClan would not have brought them here if they did not believe the Clans could survive in their new territories.
"What are we waiting for?" a new voice spoke up."Are we going to stand here all night?"
Stifling a mrrow of laughter, Brambleclaw turned to see his Clanmate Squirrelpaw standing behind him. The ginger apprentice was tearing the tough, springy grass with her front paws, her green eyes glowing with anticipation.
"Brambleclaw, look!" she purred. "We did it! We found our new home!"
She tucked her hindlegs under her, ready to dash down the hill, but before she could take off, Firestar pushed through the cats and stood in her way.
"Wait." The ThunderClan leader touched his daughter's shoulder affectionately with the tip of his tail. "We'll go together, and keep a sharp lookout for trouble. This may be the place that StarClan wished us to find, but they would not expect us to leave our wits in the forest."
Squirrelpaw dipped her head respectfully and stepped back, but when she shot a sideways glance at Brambleclaw, he saw that her eyes still gleamed with excitement. For Squirrelpaw, their journey's end could not possibly be scary.
Firestar padded over to join Blackstar and Leopardstar, the leaders of ShadowClan and RiverClan. "I suggest we send a patrol ahead," he meowed. "Just a couple of cats, to find out what it's like down there."
"Good idea -- but we can't just stand here and wait for them to return," Leopardstar objected. "It's much too exposed."
Blackstar grunted in agreement. "If a fox came along now, it could pick off the weaker cats with no trouble at all."
"But we need to rest." Mudclaw of WindClan came up to join the discussion. His leader, Tallstar, lay on the ground a little way off, with the medicine cat Barkface crouching over him. "Tallstar can't go much farther."
"Then let's send the patrol right away," Firestar suggested, "and the rest of us will follow more slowly until we find somewhere more sheltered. Yes, Mudclaw," he added, as the WindClan deputy opened his mouth to argue, "we're all tired, but we'll sleep more easily if we're not stuck out on the open hillside like this."
Blackstar called Russetfur over to him, while Leopardstar signaled with her tail for her deputy, Mistyfoot.
"I want you to go as far as the lake, then come straight back," Leopardstar ordered. "Find out what you can, but be quick, and stay out of sight."
The two cats flicked their ears, then whirled and raced away, loping along with their bellies close to the ground; within a couple of heartbeats they had vanished into the darkness.
Firestar watched them go before letting out a yowl to call the rest of the cats around him. Mudclaw went back to Tallstar and nudged the old leader to his paws. Their Clans clustered together behind the leaders of ThunderClan, RiverClan, and ShadowClan and began to follow them down the slope toward the lake.
"What's the matter?" Squirrelpaw demanded, noticing that Brambleclaw wasn't moving. "Why are you standing there like a frozen rabbit?"
"I want . . ." Brambleclaw glanced around and spotted his sister Tawnypelt padding past a little way off; he summoned her with a jerk of his head. "I want all of us to go down together," he explained when the tortoiseshell she-cat joined them. "All the cats who made the first journey."
Four cats remained from the six who had left the forest in search of a new home many moons ago. They had gained something very precious on that journey, as well as a safe place for their Clans to live: a strong bond of friendship had been forged between them, stronger than rock and deeper than the endless water that washed against the cliffs where Midnight the badger lived.
Now Brambleclaw wanted to travel with his friends one more time before their duties to their separate Clans forced them apart.
Tawnypelt let out a purr of approval. Meeting her green gaze, Brambleclaw knew that, like him, she understood they would soon be rivals again; that the next time they met could be in battle. The pain of parting swelled in his heart, and he pressed his muzzle to his sister's, feeling her breath warm against his whiskers.
"Where's Crowfeather?" she asked.
Brambleclaw looked up and spotted the young WindClan warrior a few tail-lengths away, anxiously pacing beside Tallstar. The WindClan leader looked so exhausted he could hardly put one paw in front of the other; his long tail dragged on the ground and he was leaning heavily on the brown tabby warrior Onewhisker. The WindClan medicine cat, Barkface, walked close behind, a worried look on his face.
"Hey, Crowfeather!" Squirrelpaw called.
The WindClan cat bounded across. "What do you want?"
Brambleclaw ignored his unwelcoming tone. Crowfeather's tongue was sharp enough to slice your ears off, but if danger threatened he would fight to his last breath to defend his friends.

The leaves ran with the forest breeze, with the rythem of a sad song. The light cream colored she-cat was being light on her paws, trying to catch a young vole. Then she sprang sending a gust of dirt to mingle in the air. With one lunge she got it.
" Great Starclan!" She yowled, " Will the prey ever give me so fun?"
As she carried her catch into camp, a gray warrior was there to greet her. " Ambersong!" Called Stormtail. Stormail is a charming warrior with a sleek gray pelt. Suddenly he interupted my thoughts. " Ambersong, I was wondering if you'd want to share this with me." He pawed a chaffin to my paws. I looked up to see him glaring shyly at the bird. I quickly answered. " Sure, lets over there." I lead him toward the warrior den, hoping another warrior would come along. TO BE CONTINUED......

The medicine cat walked into a nearby clearing, her belly swollen with unwanted kits. "Why me, StarClan?!" She howled before she flopped down on to the ground, her stomach colvulsing. After a while, a tabby dark brown she-cat with white paws, ears, tail and underbelly slid out, followed by a tabby golden tom. The medicine cat looked at the kits and snarled. "The tom looks like their mouse-brained father. Ill name him Flamekit. And his sister reminds me too much of Flamestar's mange-ridden sister, Morningfrost. Ill call her Morningkit." The queen said before she turned her back and walked away from her kits forever.
(P.s i want them to be raised in an evil Clan. >:D)

The fourth book Starlight in the fictional series "Warriors," by Erin Hunter is an electrifying novel jammed full with detail and action about four clans of cats and their adventures and rivalries. The story begins when the four clans: ThunderClan, ShadowClan, RiverClan, and WindClan reach their new home by the lake after Two-Legs invades their old territories. A few days after ThunderClan moves into their new camp, Leafpaw (the medicine cat apprentice), has a dream where Spottedleaf (their old medicine cat) shows her where the medicine cats can share tongues with their warrior ancestors. Later, Mistyfoot comes from RiverClan to tell them that Hawkfrost and Mudclaw are plotting to take over WindClan.
There are many superb parts in Starlight but the book also incorporates some weaknesses. One reason this book is great is because the plot is really exciting with a lot of action that leaves you hanging and forces you to move on to the next part or chapter. One example of this is "Icy claws pricked down Brambleclaw's spine." Another particular thing I think makes the writing excellent is how Hunter uses descriptive words to illustrate what is happening and the reader is able to visualize the scene. An example of this is when she writes: "Firestar's eyes were cold." You are able to imagine what Firestar's eyes looked like, angry and mean looking. Another positive thing about Hunter's writing is that she calls things differently than we do which I think is cool. The seasons are New-Leaf (spring), Green-Leaf (summer), Leaf-Fall (fall), Leaf-Bare (winter). The book has some parts that are not so appealing. Some of the characters I don't think have the right characteristics. Hunter describes a cat named Whitepaw as having a completely white body, but I think that she should have just white paws. Littlecloud should have white, puffy fur, like a cloud instead of looking like a tabby tom. Overall, the positives of this book overpower the negatives. If you are looking for a book to get hooked on you can stop looking once you pick up this fabulous novel. I highly recommend this novel because it contains action, suspense, drama which all makes a first-class book. It includes many cliffhangers which enhance your reading experience. It is my favorite out of all the others I've read. Some other novels I recommend are the books in the first Warrior series; Into the Wild, Fire and Ice, Forest of Secrets, Rising Storm, A Dangerous Path, and The Darkest Hour. I also recommend the first three of the second series The New Prophecy; Dawn, Moonrise, Midnight. These are some of the best books I've read in my life. So try them. YOU'LL BE AMAZED.
