I have loved Warriors since day 1. Warriors is full of action, suspense, drama, love, broken hearts, and everything you would want in a series. I thought after Night Whispers that no book could ever be better; no book could ever have left me feeling the way I was feeling. I was wrong. Sign of the Moon is amazing, easily the best in the series.
In this book, I was shocked by the amazing twists and turns, and I applaud Erin Hunter for coming up with this spectacular plot. Even in the first chapter, my breath is taken away from me. There is no delay in getting to the action; no fluff to start out the story. While the plot is amazing, the writing blew me away. The descriptions are detailed, but don't draw on. The dialogue is perfectly believable, not cheesy and fake sounding. The feelings of the characters are well expressed, clearer than day. As I read, I was not in my own world, but the protagonist's world. The writing and plot is terrific and unexpected. You would be making the biggest mistake in your life if you don't buy this book now.
This book is probably the best book I have ever read. It was so well written, and it was very exciting. Sign of the Moon also fills in the holes that were left open in Night Whispers.
In this book, Jayfeather travels to the mountains to visit the Tribe of Rushing Water. He then visits the Ancients (the older cats that Jayfeather was introduced to in Power of Three), and that's probably my favorite part in the book. The current Stoneteller also dies, and then Jayfeather chooses Crag as the new Stoneteller.
Lionblaze is helping to protect the Clans from the deadly battle with the Dark Forest, and he tries to work everything out more with Cinderheart. He also goes in a hole discovered inside ThunderClan territory, and finds a tuft of Hollyleaf's fur. (Any ideas as to where the hole leads?)
Dovewing(Dovepaw) Recieves her warrior name after rescuing a cat that fell into the deep hole, which reveals many secrets. Dovewing journeys with Jayfeather to the moutains as well. Tigerheart tries to cover everything up by telling her he misses seeing each other, but Dovewing shoves him off and continues her life without him.
Ivypool(Ivypaw) recieves her name as well. She and Blossomfall secretly go in the hole, and eventually get lost in it. They soon find a strange cat who (sort of) helps them out (For those who don't remember, it is Fallen Leaves from the Acients). Soon, Ivypool gets lost yet again, and a strange black she-cat comes up to them. She helps them get out safely, and then dissapears.
Overall, I'd give this book a 9.8. It was very well-written, and very interesting. Also, **SPOILER-->** Blossomfall enters the dark forest and begins training there.Read more ›
I love the Warriors series. I have an addiction to it. And this book was definitely one of my favorites! There were just so many unexpected twists and turns that kept you wanting to read more. It picked up loose ends from Long Shadows, like what happened to the Ancients after they left the lake. We have more action as the Dark Forest training becomes more brutal. And we have unexpected romance as Jayfeather finds love...but it ends in heartbreak...*sobs* And did I mention the new prophecy at the end that promises an epic 5th book?
Sign of the Moon is just filled with doom and drama and tons of suspense. The only thing I wish is that it had more fighting (as in border skirmishes). Nonetheless, this book goes in that special place where Warriors books like The Darkest Hour and Bluestar's Prophecy go. It ties up many loose ends but at the same time leaves enough to promise a fabulous 5th book.
The Erin Hunter team maintains their track record of producing exciting stories, with interesting short arcs (this one takes Jayfeather, Squirrelflight, Dovepaw, and Foxleap back to the Tribe of Endless Hunting) and ample building of drama and suspense over the long arcs. Sign of the Moon even shows promise in gathering up old loose threads that I was beginning to believe had been dropped altogether and moves them forward. Brilliant pacing and plotting - just perfect.
The prose is a little bit clunky, as usual, but it isn't awful, and the continuity doesn't suffer from any glaring errors in this book. And the Erin Hunter continues to deliver complex themes wrapped in fast-paced, exciting stories that are suitable for fairly young children (my son was seven when he read his first Warriors book). Sign of the Moon raises questions about civic duty versus personal desire, love, misunderstanding, sibling rivalry, truthfulness, faith/religion, and destiny. And... there's a mystery!
I probably would not recommend having a child start a Warriors journey with this book, because so much of what's going on depends on what has come before. But the series is shaping quite nicely, and my son and I have especially loved books 2 through 4 (start with the first one, if you're new to Warriors).
