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 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.

Don't worry, everyone! The Warriors series isn't over! I've just been informed that a new adventure is starting! The first book is called 'Dawn of the Clans: The Sun Trail' (Title may change). The date it MAY come out is March 13th, 2013. Or sometime in March. Glad to be of help to my clanmates!- Emberfur :3

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.

Wow. One word. Wow. That pretty much sums it all up, including the dramatic twists and turns, deaths, and omens and prophecies which aren't even revealed until the last book. Ever since the little kittypet earned his name, I have been a huge warrior fan. Firestar is my favorite and he will always be. But one thing upsets me. Erin Hunter creates Firepaw, builds him on and makes him the great leader Firestar and he leads his clan through the darkest times and..... Until what? She gets rid of him? She had enough of him? HUH?! I was totoally shocked when he died. But that wasn't all. Ferncloud, Mousefur, Spottedleaf, Hollyleaf just had to die too! Thats just a disapointment. Isn't Firestar's death enough? I mean seriously, Erin Hunter is that a good way to end four whole series with five deaths? Thats just sad. Have you ever heard of a happy ending? Well clearly not you just killed off four characters. :( Goodbye, Firestar may you live happily in StarClan. - Bramblepelt

This book was an amazing end to the Omen of the Stars series. I cannot believe how much I was into the book, it was almost as if I was actually a character in the story! Anyway, I suppose I can say that all the grudges have ended and all has been forgiven. I would greatly recommend these books to others!

I have to say it is a great book. Before you get it though, be forewarned that it was rather emotional, good as well as bad. Overall though the only other problem I could find was the occasional typo. In other words, I was pleased with it and I believe it is a very good closer on the series.

We read, as Firestar grew into the leader, the legend, and the father. We read from him as Rusty, a kittypet, to Firepaw, to Fireheart, and then to Firestar. He helped not only his clan, but all of them, all six. He is, to put it simply, a true legend. Its a shame we can not see the world through their eyes. Even though they are fictional, they are real to me. Rest In Peace Firestar, Leader of Thunderclan, Mentor of Skyclan and ancester to many more couragous cats.

I loved this book, but I saw so many twists and deaths before they happened thanks to the annoying people who spoil the book in the reviews. AT LEAST HAVE THE DECENCY TO SAY SPOILER ALERT?

This book is just what the headline says, its amazing. I know you die-hard Warriors fans are like " Omg, Cant wait to read it! AAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! But not me. As soon as i read the last sentence on the last page, i cried. Twice. The first time because it was the best book i have ever read (Not including the other books in the headlines). And the second time because i knew that would be one of the last Warriors books ever made by one of the best authors in the world, Erin Hunter (For those of you who dont know, Erin is accually 4 people. Its a 'pen name'). I have been with 'Rusty', 'Firepaw', 'Fireheart', 'Firestar', Brambleclaw, Squirrleflight, Leafpool, Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Hollyleaf. When they are long and forgotten... no. They will NEVER be fogotten. Erin Hunter will be a legend. A light in the dark for all the amazing fans of hers. The beating in the heart of some. I am going to miss the litteratuary arts called beauty that is Erin Hunter. Back to the book, (lol, i get side tracked like that when i just feel it.) Any way, im accually suprised that SkyClan or Ravenpaw/Barley didnt appear in any of this amazing-ness. The only thing to make warriors better is having 'Cat Norris' in it. Lol. I am not reavealing anything except this, foucs on Midnight and every prophecy. You will find the awnser then. What i mean is stack togeather All and i mean ALL the prophecys given in every Warriors book except the last one. You will find your awnser. But really, this was an amazing book and just... love it. Im a huge fan. Im more of a fan than the deaf cant hear. I highly recommend this book, but if you are just getting into the series, read 'Warriors Into The Wild'. The first book of the mist epic series in the world. I am Echoflame, and may StarClan light your path.

My grandmother got me this book yesterday on her E-reader.I finished it in about five or six hours.That's how good this book is.Not to mention the whole series.It's filled with drama,actiom,romance and suspense.I was bawling by the end.I couldn't put the E-reader down.At several moments in the book I was wondering,"Is this cat going to betray the Clans?"The Last Hope is a real page turner and I'm sad to say that I only have four super editions and all of the manga style(wich take me like five minutes each to read.) except for three to read,and Erin Hunter's #1 Bestselling series,is iver for me.When I finish,I will feel like a.piece of me is missing forever.Back on topc,I would deffinitely reccomend this book.The best of it's series.You will not be dissapointed.

The title to this epic book says it all. So many twist and turns, surprising events, the kind of book thats best for 10 and up. It truly makes me awestruck that someone that so many Clan cats love, dies. The whole Omen Of The Stars books has a tremendous beginning and a conclusion! The first book with 3 enchanted cats, and the last book with a 4th cat. Seriously, it took me a few hours to complete this amazing book, I couldn't put it down for one second! My personal favorite character I adore the most would have to be Dovewing. She can be shy around other cats, but can tell danger when she sees a Dark Forest warrior. Her ability is to hear, better than any other animal in the forest. She inspires me, a lot. This book is best for all you out there, especially all of you Fantasy Freaks. (I am one..) This book, was once again, amazing!

Being the last Warriors book the Erins were going to write, I enjoyed this one thoroughly. No one would have ever guessed who the forth cat was. But when I found out it was Firestar, I was blown away. I deffenatly thought the ending was kind of sad since he dies, but knowing that Brambleclaw/Bramblestar would take good care of thunderclan left me feeling not so bad lol. All in all great book! I especially loved the suspence.

Amazing book right till the end. Nothing goes left unanswered. Gave me chills and kept me on end right to the very last pages. I must read, but only if you've read all the books prior, like any Warriors book. Best of the Warriors books I've read since the very first part of the series. Most were hard to beat the original following of Fireheart, but this series now that I've read all six books matches it or beats it. Adrenaline constantly rushing, you will not want to put down this book.

This book is great and once you get to the fighting the story really picks up and goes by fast it seems. I think that the cat that is the fourth cat is very important and I'll admit I wasn't exactly sure how having a fourth cat was going to work, but it did. The ending made me cry a little and I think most fans who have read all the books will understand why. My only wish is that there would be more of an afterword. There were still so many questions left and I think it would be best if she wrote a final maybe book or just another chapter to really end it. However, another part of me which I took from the last few lines is that it will never end. The clans will keep having kits born and senior warriors who die. Overall it was a good book and I can't wait till the next set of 6 books. Erin Hunter has already confirmed of doing a 5th series. This time the story takes place in the old forest when the clans first form.

They have a piece of my heart with them. I really did cry at the end of the books. Cried for me. Cried for Firestar. How could everything just...end? It was a beautiful conxlusion,mind you, but how could i no longer read about Firestar? I know their doing a dawn of the clans book, i read the first book and didnt read the second. Its just not the same
