Praise for previous books in the Warriors series: “In the style of classics by Tolkien or Jacques. You’ll never look at your plain old tabby the same way again.” (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

“The author has created an intriguing world with an intricate structure and mythology, and an engaging young hero.” (School Library Journal)

“Tension-filled.” (ALA Booklist)

Customer Reviews

Firestar saved Thunder clan!
Kelly O'Neill
It was a very good way to end the first series: for example, Whitestorm died which made me grief a lot.
Christopher Des Marais
The Warriors series by Erin Hunter (books numbers 1-6) are the best books I've read in a long time.

I started out hating cats but one day I saw the first book. I decided to get it. Now, I love cats even though I'm allergic! It was amazing.These books are even better than Harry Potter. I bet with a little time Warriors could be made into $10,000,000.00 movies! The series has touched my mind and heart like no other book. Warriors 6 is the best book yet! Fireheart, I mean FIRESTAR, is now leader of the thunder clan due to Bluestar's death. Tigerstar is now wanting all of the clans to come together and become the Tigerclan. I love these books because they are full of action. These books are like miracles. I had to put down the book from time to time because I wanted to save some pages for the next day. These are the kind of books that you have to force yourself to put down to so you can go to sleep. I hope Erin Hunter writes more, but I think this is the last one :-(. It is so devestating. Firestar is almost like my heart, I can't live without it. If it was up to me I would make the series up to 10000000000000. So if Erin Hunter is reading this MAKE AT LEAST 2 MORE BOOKS!!!!!!!!!

i have read a lot but this is the best book i have ever read. it is better then harry potter, it struck a raw nerve that made me cry, tremble, and scared. some parts in this book were so intense i thought i would faint on the spot. this is really the best book i have read. hear is what is about. Blustar is dead, giving up her last life to save her clan from the dog pack. with firestar leader now he looks to new responsibitys and new changes and new threats. now with him leader tigerstar now has a even more burning desire to take out his old clan, so he enlist the help of Bloodclan, a ruthless gang of cats with no faith in starclan and kill for the fun of it. he also proclaims that he has a vision that all the clans unite as one and rule the forest forever. windclan and thunderclan refuse the offer and now tigerstar is going to make them. so shadowclan and riverclan unite to make Tigerclan and threaten to destroy windclan and thunderclan if they dont join. they also have the help of bloodclan lead by the most sinister cat you will meat scourge. read what is truely the greatest book in the world. and one more thing i was surfing through the net when i discoverd that the Warriors series is coming back. it will be a brand new series called the new prophecy that will have so far midnight, moonrise, dawn, and starlight. so it seems the warriors are here to stay.

Format: Hardcover
I have to say, The Darkest Hour may be the in the series. It tells the story of Fireheart becoming the new ThunderClan leader, and with a new name Firestar. He must face the difficult tasks of being the new leader. Fireheart and Cinderpelt travel to Moonstone where Fireheart will recieve his leader name,share dreams with StarClan and his recieve 9 lives. While he is sharing dreams, BlueStar (The old leader of ThunderClan) tells Fireheart of a prophecy,

"Four will become two, Lion and Tiger will meet in battle, and blood will rule all"

And new twists make this story even better. Tigerstar tries to get all clans to join into one big one, and believe me, nobody likes that idea. And, a new clan called BloodClan, a clan of rouge cats tries to kill ALL the clans. Will Firestar lead them to victory? Will all the forest be taken over by rouges?

Any cat lover who's EVER dreamed of wild cats, or loves cats should read this series! It's a great series for ALL ages.

Firestar thought his troubles were over, but it is far from it. With his trusted new deputy, Whitestorm, he must face a new prophecy:

"Four will become two. Lion and tiger will meet in battle, and blood will rule the forest."

TigerClan faces LionClan, and BloodClan threatens the whole forest. As Firestar watches a defeated enemy die in a heartbeat, he can't help but wonder if his Clan faces the same danger. The death of friends occur, and a surprising exile occurs.

As for Tigerstar's kits, their loyalties lie each in different Clans, and Firestar is proud beyond recognition.

Will Firestar survive this new threat? Find out, read this book!

This is a bit of a review on all the books and I may unintentionaly add spoilers for the new prophecy. I think these are the best books, though I find they are quite similar to my other favorite, Harry Potter. For example, graypaw (ron) is best friend to newcomer firepaw(harry). they are later joined by sandpaw(hermione) who they previously didnt think much of. there is a traitor among them, tigerclaw (profesor snape) though there leader bluestar (dumbledor) is much too trusting. eventualy this trust costs bluestar (dumbledor) much more than their honor. If you have not read the Harry potter books, i highly recomend it if you like the warrior series.

IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE NEW PROPHECY BOOKS DO NOT READ FURTHER

I didn't much like how in the new prophecy it was told mostly from brambleclaw's point of veiw. i much prefered firestar and now firestar seems at times as distant and unemotional as bluestar did. without firestar as the teller of the story, graystripe seems to be unfiar and bossy. i realise that as leader and deputy, the two have more responibilities than before, but this would not have changed them so much.

And another thing I would like to point out, when tigerstar (tigerclaw then) was found out about, the only cats bluestar trusted were whitestorm and firestar (fireheart then) whitestorm was expirieced, loyal and forest born. WHY DIDN'T BLUESTAR CHOOSE HIM AS DEPUTY??? Why? Because it wouldn't have made a good story. But when you look at it sensibly then you realise who the deputy really should have been.

I am not a reader that cries easily. But in these books I felt like my eyes were constantly wet.
