Younger readers might find some of the battles disturbing because of the deaths involved of beloved characters. This is definitely a book for older Warriors fans.
There were things I liked about this book including an exciting confrontation between Firestar and Tigerstar, The powers of the three being used to protect the Clans, the finding of the fourth cat, which was both surprising to me, and very satisfying as to who it was. I also liked how many of the relationship problems between various characters were dealt with in the novel. Leafpool and her kits deal with their relationship problems, Squirrelflight and Brambleclaw deal with theirs, even Crowfeather discusses his feelings about Breezepelt and his other kits, and also his feelings about Leafpool.Read more ›
I enjoyed the beginning greatly, it was well written just as the previous book was. They tided everything together very smoothly and had me hooked from the first chapter as usual.
As the climax of the book began to strenghten things started to seem rushed. Details were being overlooked (RiverClan was never mentioned again after the pre-battle meeting besides to say how they faired at the end). Besides the ThunderClan cats, no other cats from the other Clans were pronounced dead. Surely ThunderClan wasn't the only one to suffer deaths? What did the Clans do afterwards? So many open-ended questions that were not tied together left me very unsatified.
I did not like how Firestar died. It was never truely explained the cause of his death. Was he striked by the lightening or did the blast kill him?
Bramblestar's nine life ceremony was so rushed I didn't realize what had happened until they started calling his new name. I thought Jayfeather was just introducing the cats they did not touch noses or anything as they have in The Darkest Hour with Firestar.
Dovewing and Bumblestripe I assume are together, wondering who gets the she-cat was a guess at the end and was not truely explained.
There are many more things the rushed ending has dissappointed me with.
*END OF SPOILERS*
All-in-all nothing they have written compares to the first warrior series. They put a real-life aspect into the first series that started to stretch over time from normal farel cats, to cats who fought in dreams, to cats who have powers. The once adult/teen-written book has stretched, I am assuming, to try and keep the old fans attention when we already had it to begin with.Read more ›
But I used a whole box of tissues way.
Let the spoilers begin.
I hated how it had to go to 70% of the way done, on the Kindle Edition, until the battle begun. Considering there was an adventure Game in this book, that only left 10% of the book for the battle.
When Hollyleaf died, teats when my first tears came out. But when Fallen Leaves came.... there went a lot of the tissues :'D
I loved Mousefur. I really, really loved that cranky elder. She was in EVERY single Warriors book, which made me think she was like, invincible. When she died.... It felt so UNFAIR. I would have let any other character die in her place. THAT used up most of the tissues.
Next went Ferncloud. IT was not too upsetting for me, as she was never really my favorite. But I thought how unfair it was to Dustpelt... more tissues gone xD
Almost done. SPOTTEDLEAF DIED! </3 That seriously broke my heart. Knowing she died, and died again, was baaad. But when I realized her spirit was non-existent now, I used up everything but a few tissues. I could not believe it... Poor Firestar </3
I had to begin re-using tissues once Firestar died. I still don't see how he died though. Was it the lightning or something? 0_0
Overrall... I can't re-read the series again. Not until all this has been erased from my memory, pretty much. I just won't be able to see Firestar in any of the books. I know he's dead. OR Spottedleaf, while she is in Starclan. I know she isn't there anymore.
