“I love it! Erin Hunter made the best novel I’ve read since Harry Potter! Full of adventures, battling clans, and a classic good vs. evil theme, this is a great book for kids who love fantastical stories or love cats.” (Brightly)
“A suspenseful animal adventure. Teen readers will readily identify with Firepaw’s strenuous efforts to fit into the group, applaud his courage to follow his own convictions, and rejoice at the promised sequel.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“Action-packed adventure. Certain to please any young reader who has ever wondered what dreams of grandeur may haunt the family cat.” (Publishers Weekly)
“The first spine-tingling episode in the planned Warriors series. Sure to appeal to followers of Brian Jacques’ ongoing Redwall series.” (ALA Booklist)
“The author has created an intriguing world with an intricate structure and mythology, and an engaging young hero.” (School Library Journal)
“The series is patterned in the style of classics by J.R.R. Tolkien or Brian Jacques. It will hook fantasy fans immediately. Read this, and you’ll never look at your plain old tabby the same way again.” (Cleveland Plain Dealer)
“You sweat during the intense parts and cry during the sad times. You’ll want to read the whole series over and over again.” (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

Erin Hunter has managed to create a compelling world with richly-detailed characters and fleshed out plots that fill every emotion- happiness, sadness, loyalty, diversity, mourning, grief, revenge, and friendship.
Despite being children's fiction, the themes and stories have many adult elements for reader's of all ages (I'm a thirty year old guy who unabashedly loves his pets) with a story on the level of Watership Down. You become passionate about the characters and their tribulations, and are heartbroken by the not infrequent deaths from warring clans or nature.
I bought this book as light bedtime reading, and quickly purchased the remaining five. I honestly couldn't put it down and if you're looking at this, I'm confident you won't be able to either.
Now that it's over, I'm so happy that I've got about 20 other books in the series to read.
At first, in the first few pages, it's slightly dull and boring, but slips into action quickly. Little, human loving kittypet (housecat), Rusty loves the outdoors and longs to be in the wide, open air and hunt his own prey, but he's stuck with two-legs. (Humans). He loves his owners, how they stroke his belly and take care of him. But he doesn't like the gross, stale dropping s in his bowl, the warm, tangy water that hydrates him, and his hot, confining collar. One day, he's met by three, mysterious cats that offer him a new, free life. Rusty takes the offer... and knows that now he is a member of the noble Thunderclan. But he's met with several obstacles In Thunderclan, from battling with his kittypet instincts, to making his new family trust him, and having a hard time trusting a particular cat himself... whilst in this great drama, Firepaw, (once known as Rusty), figures out over time that great troubles stirring.
Love the book, read all of the series. I would recommend this book to cat lovers and fantasy lovers. Great job, Erin Hunter!
I really love the new covers, so much so that I want to buy the books I already have just to get those new covers. However, I also enjoy the classic covers so I’ll be including both.
I love having the lists of different cats and the maps, the only thing I have a small problem with is the names being overly repeated. I would say something more about that and the repeating what’s going on but this is pretty much a children’s book.
Well, children through early teens but I will also say that this books is for adults. I’m 24 and still really enjoy these books.
Even remembering what was going to happen, the authors wrote this in a way to evoke emotion and to create connections quickly. I didn’t want to set this down and when I finished it, I went right on to the next book.
For what this story is, I feel like everything that happens is realistic in that world and it’s rather interesting to see the world from a cat’s point of view.
I would highly recommend to young and older audiences.
Rusty, a kitty-pet, owned by two-legs, gets restless with his pampered, uneventful life. He ventured beyond the safe boundaries of his yard, tussled with and then made friends with members of the ThunderClan.
While training as an apprentice warrior, Rusty learns about bravery, fear, trust, suspicion, loyalty, suffering, grieving, avenging and celebrating
An interesting storyline filled with complex feline characters. An enjoyable read.
