Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
The Sun Trail is a story about many cats living in a cave with little food or space. They see a ray from the rising sun and decide to follow it hoping to find a new place that will be beautiful and where food will be plentiful. They are tired when the journey begins and it only gets worse as they travel, since none of them have ever been out of the mountains before. Clear Sky is a great brother and friend, but it does not last. His brother, Gray Wing, has strong feelings for Storm, but Clear Sky took her from him. Eventually, his family and friends become second to him, and he turns on the moor cats. This book has great adventure, it is fast moving, and filled with powerful emotions. There characters are well-developed and the storyline leaves readers excited for the next book. Recommended. Part of the "Warriors" series. Reviewer: Kathie M. Josephs

YES! Finely its on the nook!! It will be so cool to see how the clans were first made and maybe even how the cat first got together! I also really like the cat on the cover! He reminds me of firestar only more of a red-ish-brown.

In the Dawn of the Clans, you'll meet the first leaders, including Skystar! I hope we read how Lightningtail died.

You will not be disappointed with this new book in the Warrior series. I was so sad when the original series ended and now.....whoohoo!!!!! more Warrior adventures. This series explains how the "original" clans of the forest came to be. Definitely don't want to say too much and give anything away. I will say, you will love this book. I know I did and can't wait for Book two to be published. Happy reading!!

This book is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is very different than the other books because it is about the beggining of the clans. There is an amazing surprise in there for the people who have already read the power of three series.

I love this book. It is about Half Moon (she is in the books long shadows and sign of the moon) seing a sign to have some cats leave the cave so no more cats will starve. Clear Sky, Thenbrother of Gray w,Wing, who is the main cat, leaves. Gray Wing stays back zte the cave but myst leave. Gray Wing and Jagged Peak, his little brother, search for the traveling cats,and look for a new home. But the quest is harder then it seems, they have to learn to deal eith the cats that lived there, and Gray Wing must learn Clear Skys ambuntion to evil. Can Gray Wing leave or learn to face the danger in his new home.

She returned with a bundle a herbs in her jaws, her pelt wet from dew drops off the grass. "Here." She said softly, nudging a poppyseed toward him. "Eat this."

A prequel to the original Warriors series, this book seems to take the concept back to its roots. If you found Warriors: Into the Wild enjoyable and appropriate, The Sun Trail is right on par.

Great book about how the cats traveled from the mountains to the forest. They met the first cats who lived there. Hint: Cloud Spots and Dapple Pelt, two of the first medicine cats, are from the mountains. They know alot about herbs. Gray Wing, Jagged Peaks, Shaded Moss, Cloud Spots, Dapple Pelt,Moon Shadow, Quick Water, Clear Sky, Falling Feather, Hawk Swoop, and Bright Stream go on the journey to the forest. Bright Stream dies saving Gray Wing from an eagle.

I love your books! Can you add my character for the warriors series? Her name is Blue Breeze, she is a mahogany-brown she-cat with blue eyes. She is good-natured, willing to do what her Leader says, and is the swiftest cat in her clan ( Thunder clan ). Thanks!:)
