I have now realized just how much the first series depended on the tension of expecting a battle to happen anywhere, at any time. This suspense is a large part of what made me a Warriors fan. Midnight, while written well and with characters we care about, lacks this suspense. This is actually strange, since the plot is moving faster in Midnight than in Into the Wild. There was suspense and tension near the end, though, which was definitely something good.
I also realized just how much the original series depended on subplots. In Midnight, there are virtually no subplots. At least, none that I remember. The subplots in the original series were interesting, and a reason they were so suspenseful. I guess this is a factor contributing to the lack of suspense in Midnight.
When I say lack of suspense, I do not mean lack of interest. I have read worse books before. Midnight is an interesting book, but with a lack of battles, it can be viewed as boring.
There was one way in which Midnight surpassed the original series, however. Characterization. This is a very important thing in a story. In Warriors, the main characters had some sort of personality, and sometimes it was strong, but most of the time, the cats weren't really that different from one another.Read more ›
Summary: There has been peace among the Clans for many moons since BloodClan was driven from the forest. But a new prophecy has been made known to the cats. A great danger is coming to befall the forest and StarClan has chosen the warriors that will save the forest.
Brambleclaw, Tigerstar's son in ThunderClan, has recieved a dream where Bluestar gives him the message to meet three other cats and hear what midnight has to say. He travels to FourTrees and meets the others: Tawnypelt, his sister who now lives in ShadowClan; Feathertail, Graystripe's daughter in RiverClan; and Crowpaw, an young apprentice from WindClan.
At first, they are reluctant and unsure but, after reciving more signs from StarClan, they decide to head to the sun-drown place. But they dont go alone, they are accompanied by Squirrelpaw, Firestar's daughter, and Stormfur, Feathertail's brother. Together the six cats journey to the sun-drown place, hoping midnight will give them a clue to save the forest.
But there is trouble in the forest. Leafpaw, Firestar's other daughter who is studying as a medicine cat, has gotten messages from StarClan as well. Fire, tiger, and trouble. Could this refer to Firestar's daughter Squirrelpaw and Tigerstar's son Brambleclaw? And the Twolegs are closing in with their monsters. What do they plan to do?
This series is so great! I think its even better than the first. Firestar was cool and all but the idea of a cat from each clan working together was more appealing than just one cat who whined too much. No offense to Firestar.
Cant wait for the next book. I heard this might only be a trilogy but I hope that's wrong. Its a quick read but its worth it!
The book starts out with a wonderful prologue, and the first half is almost the best section in the series. The rest, though, doesn't move along to fast. The starting has the action and suspense that draws readers into the Series, but the further parts just are one thing after another. There's one outer plot. Nothing else. And it's mostly the same. The last few chapters, though bring back the suspense we saw in the first part. Unfortunately, it leaves right in the middle of a suspenseful, surprising ending. One of the nice things about it, though, is that in the ending, I had no idea what was coming. There are hints throughout the book, but the ending gives it more substance.
The characters in this book are very well-developed, though that may come from having fewer characters you meet on a regular basis. Each has its on strong personality, its own history and its own abilities.
I found this a great book, though some of the books in the first series outrank it. But if you've read the first series, this is a must-have continuation of the much-loved books.
