To battle the darkness that has no end, three must become four. The sixth and final episode of Erin Hunter's Omen of the Stars Warriors series draws the looming confrontation between the Clans and the Tigerstar's Dark Forest warriors to a feverish conclusion.

Meet the Author

Erin Hunter is inspired by a love of cats and a fascination with the ferocity of the natural world. As well as 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 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."

    SO AMAZING!

    I'm on Spring Break, so since i didn't have to go to school today one of the first things I did was go to the store and buy this book. skip a few hours and now I'm done. I've been reading this series since i was in fourth grade. I am now in tenth. When I read the last words on the final page i felt as if a piece of me died. Epic conclusion to my favourite series of all time. so many twists and dramatic moments kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time, wondering which cats would betray their clans in the final battle and if StarClan would be able to get over their feud to join the warring Clans below. I nearly cried on several occasions, which is something that is quiet rare for me. I highly recommend this book, and the series which it so fantastically concludes, to any eager readers. You will not be disappointed.

    The Last Hope - by Crookedstar

    The Last Hope clung to me, word for word. I have read every Warriors book, memorizng every one, and this is definetely the final climax. Every death has stuck like a needle in my mind, bringing back good and bad memories of every single character. As the Three look for the Fourth, whe you finally find out who the Fourth is, you realize how obvious it was. I would point these clues out to the oblivious, but I would hate to ruin the surprise for people pirchasing this book. This book is one og my personal favorites. I think it is probably the most violent. The Darkest Hour was violent, do not get me wrong, but the war in this book simply blows the mind. I reread the battle three times, just to make sure I did not miss a single scratch. This book is full of everything readers should search for. Mystery, as they attempt to find the Fourth. Adventure, through the battles. Shock, and secrets and desires are shared amd spread. Romance, as forbidden loves and soulmates come together. The literature in this book is truly amazing. The finely used words and expressions are exemplary. This is definetely a book to get. The only disappointmet I had was eith a few of the deaths, but I remind myself that the characters live on in both my mind, andmainly, StarClan. One death in particular made me burst into tears, andI had to force myself to stop in fear of getting my NOOK wet or dirty. Ths final three chaptets are the hardest, as you struggle to make it through thebattle, watching fine cats fall at last. One character dies in this book who has been there since the beginning, when Rusty was brought to the Clan. The onlybthing I dislike about the series is that it usually stars ThunderClan. I have began to think of the Clans like the Houses in Harry Potter by JK Rowling. ThunderClan is definetely the Gryffindor of the forest. WindClan is the Hufflepuff of thrm all. RiverClan, my personal favorite Clan, is most like to House Ravenclaw. And finally, dear ShadowClan, is definetely most like the House Slytherin. The charactetistics of each cat and their Clab are well matched. A few cats I could very easily imagine being in different Clans, though. I think also that EH could have made the Clans realize that a war was coming just a bit sooner, but the element of surprise was with the Dark Forest in this tale. This book does not focus much on romances until the battle, where fprbidden couples meet again, and have a few dramatic moments that mafe me go "Ew. Mushy." But the romances were well played, every single one of them. If I could change them at all, I would not change a single, solitary thing as far as the romances go. Evil cats were also well done. The met their true opposites, total enemies, and for once again the oblivious, Tigerstar and Firestar do meet in quite the dramatic battle. A few cats come from StarClan to help woth the battle. A few cpming back made me smile, especially Whitestorm, one of my favorite cats. Ih, and on the amount of Clan pride RiverClan drives off the Dark Forest warriors the fastest. Sorry. This is a review, not a roleplay... Anyways, detail was big in this book. Especially in the battle, I searched and searched constantly for good details to build up the battle in my mind, and I must say, my searches were usually positive. If they were to come out with a Warriors movie, (dream come true!) then the well descriptions of this book wod totally help inthe makingof it. I am unfortunately running out of space. The Lost Hope is epic.

    Interesting how so many of the 5 star reviews have never read the book. I have.

    The Good: I liked who the fourth turned out to be. I liked the ending...not a "happily ever after" for every cat--several do die--but a good ending nonetheless. Several good resolutions to different conflicts. Yes, the Dark Forest is defeated (you knew this would happen) and I liked how that was brought about. The first half of the book was great, very engaging and reflective of the previous books.

    The Bad: The last half was incredibly rushed. If you were listening to a person tell the story, you would be completely engaged in the story, then the person telling the story would suddenly say, "Oops, gotta go, here's the run-down on what happened." It was really disappointing. Just about every conflict between cats or sub-plot was brushed over. It wasn't that the end result was bad, it was that the journey there was severely lacking. I got to the end of the book, and instead of saying, "That was awesome!" I was left with, "Well, the ending was okay, but that wasn't much fun." I wish the authors would have taken the time to expound on the ending, especialy the battle, and give as much attention to detail there as they have for the rest of the books.

    Great book, best of the best

    Yes, Erin hunter has tugged us into the warriors once more. With her sequel to night whispers, it's is most definantly great. You'd never expect what happens, nor that it was going to come to that. So get the great family adored book,ni definantly recommend it to all children and young teens.
