A enjoyable read! It is a book I kept turning the pages to see what was happening next. I liked that the reader knew what was going on before the characters had it figured out.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Four cats entered StoneClan camp. Fernwisker, Cloudear, Dogclaw, and Brambleblood. They needed to head to the medicine cat's den- they all needed help from the medicine cat, Fawntooth. Fawntooth looked at Brambleblood and yelped. "IT'S BRAMBLEBLOOD! HE'S IN OUR CAMP! HE'S GOING TO KIL US ALL!!!!!" "Would you hush-up!!!!!" Dogclaw mewed. Oh, great, he thought. Now you've gotton the wole clan's attention. The four cats sighed and heded up to Maskstar's den. Maskstar was getting old and frail and it won't be long until until he retires. Dowclaw, Fernwhisker, and Cloudear explained what happened to Brambleblood and asked if he could do a clan meeting for Brableblood to explain what he is doing in StoneClan camp. "Oh, all right," responded Maskstar. Then he stepped out of the den. "Let all cats old enough to catch their own prey join here at high stone for a clan meeting!" He called. Brambleblood stepped up next to Maskstar, looking embarassed. Fernwhisker, Cloudear, and Dogclaw stood on the side. The StoneClan cats hardly came out of their dens. They looked frightened and ready to flee out of camp. Brambleblood told the message that he got from StarClan and how he is a good cat again, but ChaosClan doesn't believe him and refuses to bring him back. "So," he concludes, "can i be a warrior of StoneClan?" Supprisingly, most of the cats nodded in sympathy and agreement. They all seemed to not mind having Brambleblood as a warrior of StoneClan expept one kit. "His name is scary!" Said the kit. Brambleblood looked at his new leader. "May you please change my name to something... more..... non-violent?" Maskstar nodded. "Your name shall be Bramblescratch." Bramblescratch nooded and grinned. "My red stripes on my fur DO kind of look like scratches, don't they?" He let out a mrrow of amusement. Bramblescratch padded up to find Cloudear sitting closely next to Fernwhisker. "Common," he mewed to them. "Lets find Dogclaw and head to Fawntooth's den." They found Dogclaw and padded over to their medicine cat's den. "We each have something you need to look at," mewed Cloudear. "I'll be first." He showed Fawntooth his stump of a tail. "I have stopped the bleeding, but now i'm afraid that it will get infected." Then Fawntooth took some cobweb and put it on his stumped tail. "Try not to wiggle your tail, or it will come off," Fawntooth suggested. Then Bramblescratch stepped up. "I think i still have the curse inside of me," he said. Fawntooth thought. "I have an idea", she said. "Come to me every day aftee you have eaten. Then i will give you yarrow. In a moon, you should be fully recovered from the curse." Then Fernwhisker stepped up with her mate, Cloudear. "We think that I'm expecting kits," she explained. Fawntooth looked at her swollen belly. "Possibly, and probably," said Fawntooth. "Wow, and mabe up to four kits!" Cloudear licked Fernwhisker's ear. Then Dogclaw said that his paw is sprained. "Yes, I think that you are right," replied Fawntooth, grabbing marigold out of her supplies. "Here, put this on it." "Thanks," he said. (Part 2 is in the next result)
