Chapter Eight "'Be strong?'" What is that?" I snarl quietly, stalking to Bloodstar's den. The tom is curled up in his nest. It's still late nighttime—just past moonhigh. "Bloodstar!" I meow. "Huh?" He scrambles to his paws, fluffing up his short pelt. "I had a dream." I launch into the story, giving him every detail. When I finish, he's thinking hard. "No warriors?" He asks. "None." I shake my head. "Hmm... and which tom was sent with you?" "Shadowpaw." His amber eyes sadden. "My son and the medicine cat apprentice." "You have a choice. You can send some other cat." "Really? They say that, Ivypaw, but why would they tell you and not me if they wanted anyone else going?" "I understand." Bloodstar looks stressed. Go wake Shadowpaw, please. Give him whatever herbs you'll need to travel, and head off. Don't wake anyone. After he's up, go to another Clan. Not StormClan, until you've got another Clan's chosen ones with you. It's not safe." "Okay." I turn and leave. I slip into the apprentices' den, and look for Shadowpaw. My gaze rests on the fluffy black tom. I pad over to him, and prod him awake. He rolls over drowsily. When he sees me, his eyes widen. "What?" He asks. "Bloodstar wants us to leave." "Like, forever? Because of-" I cut him off. "No. To find the new place." "Oh." He looks relieved. "We gotta get the other Chosen first." "Chosen?" I honestly made that up, but I don't say that. Just nod and leave. We sneak into me and Creekstep's den. I snatch some leaf packets, which were already prepared, just in case. We both swallow down our herbs, making disgusted faces. "Can I tell Swanpaw good-bye?" He asks. I stiffen. My sister! "Why?" "I figure she'd spread the news fastest." I see him smiling in the darkness. 'That was a joke. Oh.' I laugh, and pad out of camp. There are more guards tonight, but I know plenty of trails out of camp throughout the thorny barrier. We slip into the woods undetected. "Which Clan should we meet?" Shadowpaw asks. "OceanClan." "Good idea." I race into the trees, towards the OceanClan border. I can hear Shadowpaw's panting, his paws thrumming on the ground behind me. When we reach the border, I slow to a walk, pricking my ears for night patrols. I know OceanClan territory well. Their Clan and mine are very peaceful. Crossing borders isn't like instantly attack for us, but you don't go over just because. It doesn't take long to get to camp. Their leader is waiting with Jaypaw and Icepaw, a white shecat with very pale gray patches. "Greetings. We are the Chosen of ThornClan." I meow, dipping my head. "Greetings." The leader nods. "Good luck to you all. Be careful, too." We thank him and move on to the next Clan—StormClan.

I think that both of these ratings are misleading. This book is certainly not WOW and it is not boring either. It is, however, at times shocking, compelling, and at other times a bit technical and tedious. There are two novels mixed into one. The first novel deals with the carnage in the urban battlefields of America. The second imbedded novel is a survey of conspiracy theory research by the main character. After the survey concludes, he forms his own opinion and the book returns to the main plot and the novel concludes. It's like a trip into the darkness of human paranoia. If you can make it through the excessive length, you begin to question reality a little gets you thinking.

WOW! This book is defenitely not for someone with a weak stomach! The portrayl of the American inner city schools is absolutely shocking. Within the main plot, there is a secondary plot that tries to place the events of the inner city under a global architecture or plan. Fasten your seat belts and read the secondary plot if you dare! This book will give you a different lense through which you view the world and I can say that from the main character's point of view "it ain't pretty." The highly opinionated character develops a common thread that unites all the current events that are consumed through the media. The book is like a strange mix of tales from the hood, conspiracy theory, and existentialism. Oh, and the charts and pictures at the end are mind blowing...
