Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Fans of the ongoing Warriors series will enjoy this first volume in the Omen of the Stars subset. Cats Jayfeather and Lionblaze are grieving for Hollyleaf and are uncertain of the identity of the third cat with the “power of the stars.” All of the clans are suffering from the heat and drought. When Lionblaze discovers his apprentice Dovepaw can “see” events happening far-off, he organizes a patrol to investigate a vision about the river. Dovepaw is a reluctant heroine, furious about her powers and new responsibilities. The perilous journey creates powerful bonds between the clans, but ancient grievances portend new battles. Grades 5-8. --Chris Sherman

I will not lie. When I first picked this book up and flipped through it, I had my doubts. After the literary insult that was "The Power of Three" I was skeptical, and it was only my loyalty to the series that left me with sixteen less dollars in my pocket. I put of reading it for a few days, afraid that I was about to enter the plotless filler-infected mess that had become the third series. And even as I picked at the first few chapters, I was worried. Had my favorite feline series finally taken the leap?

But I read on.

Past the first few chapters, reminding us of our Warriors universe, introducing us to some new problems, and reminding us of the last six books, the story began to take shape. A new Main Character was introduced, and although I was unsure at first, I found I liked her spunky attitude and loyalty to her kin. As well as the new character, I was reunited with some old friends, some I had missed, others I hadn't. Lionblaze, who I had despised in the TPOT, caught me now as a sort of flat character, one who seemed to meld into the background. Jayfeather, my second favorite of the original three, surprised me with his maturity and insecurity, and I found his chapters to be thoroughly enticing.

After the first few chapters of dryness, I found with pleasure that the story really started to heat up. A somewhat original plot was introduced, and pleasantly it wasn't about beating around the bush to find the titled 'Fourth Apprentice'. Instead, it was getting right to the point and giving us what we wanted. To have a straightforward answer, here she is, here's what she can do, here's how she does it.

I have read all the other series and this book is by far the best reading. It made me feel as if I was right there sitting with them at the lake. Cats are truly amazing animals. My mom buys me all the books. This is a collection that i will forever keep.

Format: Hardcover
When I started reading this book I had very low expectations. This was because the Power of Three books had ended on such a low and sad note (Hollyleaf dies). But, as I started reading I quickly realized how much this series needed Hollyleaf's death to kick off the series. This is the type of book where the reader starts loving it in the first chapter.
The Summary: Still grieving over the death of their sister Hollyleaf, Jayfeather and Lionblaze begin the search for the third cat in the Prophecy. Then two kits are born Ivykit/Ivypaw and Dovekit/Dovepaw. Then, Lionblaze realizes that Dovepaw, his apprentice, can see and hear things no other cat can see, including creatures that are creating a dam to stop the flow of water to the lake!!!!!! With the water amount dropping rapidly no cat is sure if it is a good choice to send cats to fix the problem. Also, tension between Ivypaw and Dovepaw rise. Will the sisters become enemies? Finally, the choice is made. They will send cats to see if the river is blocked. But will any of them return alive? As the other cats go on their quest to see if the river is blocked Jayfeather deals with problems near home.
You will find that you ask the questions that I mentioned, and you'll get them!! If you love books, if you hate books, if you're neutral you'll love this book.

Survivors and Seekers may not be my taste, but Warriors is awesome! I've read the 1st series, 2nd, 3rd, and now I'm reading the 4th. I've also read a super edition. And I guess I have to say 'Keep it up Erin Hunter!' I love these books- it's the best series there is- and I hope Erin Hunter makes a 5TH series. Warrior cats DO rule the wild!!!

I had been anticipating this read for such a long time that as soon as it came out, I ordered it. When it arrived at the house, I nearly tripped over so many things rushing to read it. In "The Fourth Apprentice", Jayfeather and Lionblaze are trying to find the last cat that will have special powers like them. There is also a severe drought caused by the fact that there is no water flowing in from the stream and into the lake.
I finished this book so fast - almost too fast, if you ask me. I guess I'll just have to sit and wait until the next comes out.
Read it. You will not be disappointed!

I really like this "Warriors: Omen of the Stars: The Fourth Apprentice" by Erin Hunter
and finally I was able to find out who is the fourth apprentice, to fullfil the ancient prophecy. This book starts by a heartbreaking event: A drought has struck the cats' territory. All that remains of the formerly big lake is a small pool of water which is now constantly shared/fought over by the four cat clans. All the little animals that the cat eat are either dying or dead. It's difficult to even find the herbs for the medicine tents because everything is so dry and dying.

Lionblaze and Dovepaw are sent to go on a dangerous mission to save the clans.
Dovepaw has a vision of a beaver dam blocking the river. Lionblaze believes her and convinces Firestar to send a patrol to remove this dam.

Erin Hunter is actually many different writers, and not just one person. The author has written three sets of Warrior cat -books

I would recommend "Warriors: Omen of the Stars: The Fourth Apprentice" to children/YA/adults who like cats, action and adventure. Other similar books besides the Warrior -series, that the readers might like, are the Seekers by Erin Hunter, and also the new Animellis Island -series.

This was a very intriguing book and once you pick it up you won't want to put it down because you want to know about the prophecy's cats and also what will the cats do to help themselves in this drastic situation.
