What is up with all the clan cat stuff guys? I mean, im a. highschool girl and I get why some people enjoy the books, but this LARP stuff is a little weird. I would like a review, not the latest fantasy cat gossip. Has anyone actually read the book? Any input would be appreciated! :) Thnx, -Autumn
It seems like this clan will die out. Not very many warriors are there. I am FrostBite, A to of the Dark Forest. "Snow starts falling as the tom pads out of the shadows. His pure white pelt seems to draw in every snowflake around him, making his pelt whiter. His silver eyes have malice and hatred reflected in them. Wings of black blood burst from his back. Ten foot claws shine in the light of the claw-moon." And when this clan does die out, we Dark Forest cats will claim this territory. And theres nothing you can do to stop it. And without your precious medicine cat BlizzardHeart who has the power to bring cats back from StarClan, your clanmates will die of the wounds that only she can heal.
Are u a shecat?
Oo boy new kits!!(or soon to be)
MidnightWhisper: Here she is. "she-cat pads out of the shadows, with BlizzardHeart in front of her, her ten foot claws leaving trails of blood dripping from BlizzardHeart's throat." BlizzardHeart: Please! Help me! MidnightWhisper: Be quiet! "she runs her claws across BlizzardHeart's neck, causing more blood to flow"
