Well, Warriors fans, this is it: Outcast has finally arrived. And let me start by saying that it was excellent! By far, this is the best of the Power of Three series thus far. The story line was intriguing, and overall, the plot of this newest Warriors series really began to come together. Aside from advancing the plot, our marvelous Erins also did some major character development in Outcast.

The trio really matured in this book, laying the grounds for more interesting problems (like outside of common question "Should we disobey orders and take matters into our own paws, or listen?") later in the series. Lionpaw isn't so goody-goody, and not so proud. It grows steadily obvious that fighting is his strong point. And Hollypaw is a bit obsessed with wanting to be leader (and still slightly irritating with her constant worrying), but she's really maturing too. Jaypaw is sill prickly, but not so annoying, and the parts of the book from his point of view were, in my opinion, the most interesting. I really liked the character development in this book... even Breezepaw seems to be maturing somewhat, and you get real insight as to why he's so obnoxious.

Anyway, I thought that this book was great. From an increasingly interesting plot (read to find out what happens!) to characters that truly begin to come to life, Outcast was a must-read for all Warriors fans!

With the release of Outcast, the newest installment in the Warriors series, Erin Hunter seems to have finally gotten back into her groove, giving us a book that, dare I say it, actually rivals that of the original series. In fact, Power of Three has gotten off to a pretty good start. With The Sight, it was a bit lackluster but by far better then the last two books. Then with Dark River, the story seemed to pick up and get even better as the pages turned and now with the third book, I truley think Hunter has returned to her roots and produce a compelling read.

After the near break out of war between Windclan and Thunderclan, things appear to be returning to normal in the clan, though for our three protaganist things couldn't be anything but normal. Jaypaw still searches for answers on the ancient clan that once roamed the lake, while Hollypaw and Lionpaw strive towards becoming better warriors. And things couldn't be made easier with a newly made warrior determined to cause conflict, a mentor with a dark side, and a growing threat in the mountains that draws all three cats towards discovering their true destiney.

What I feel Outcast did was really pick up on the whole 'phrophecy' of this series, with plot details becoming more and more developed, long overdue questions finally being answered, and our three heroes finally beginning to take shape as true characters. So by far, this is the best one out of the series so far, and hopefully, the fourth will continue this momentum.

Once again, a must for all cat lovers and especially long time Warriors readers.

I was a little disappointed. This booked seemed to lack the fire, excitement and originality previous books in the `Warriors' series had. But following `Dark River' almost anything would seem dull. Nevertheless, I'll buy the next book just to see where it goes. I'll follow it to the end. I'm hooked. I'm grateful to the whole series. My 10 year old granddaughter has devoured the series from `Into the Wild' through `Outcast'. She has read all 15 books in the `Warriors' series, plus two supplemental books `Firestar's Quest' and `Secrets of the Clans' in six months and is waiting anxiously for the next book. Prior to her reading `Into the Wild' she wasn't much of a reader. Now she reads everything she can get her hands on including other books and even granny's Reader Digest. Any book under 200 pages seems small to her; when before it would have seemed like a monumental task to read. If you are new to the series, begin with `Warriors-Into the Wild'. If you want to get a young reader (girl or boy) hooked on reading this is an excellent series to begin with.

My daughter who is 11 is HOOKED on this series. I cannot believe how fast she is a making it through all these books. I can't complain about spending the money especially when she is reading!! Thank You so much for writing a series to get kids interested in reading!! She will stay up way past her bedtime reading. It's hard to argue with her when she says just one more chapter.....

"Outcast" tackles some very complex themes in a deceptively simple format: religion, the "spreading" of our preferred political systems to other cultures, whether it's okay for our leaders to lie to us in order to motivate or protect us, the fallibility of leaders in general. These are fairly sophisticated questions to be presented in juvenile fiction, and they are handled fairly gracefully, without the authors' own views being preached or even revealed in any blatant way. The book thus provided an opportunity for me to begin exploring these issues with my eight-year-old son without overwhelming him or inculcating him in any particular philosophy (other than my own).

The book also deftly develops the characters of the three protagonists and answers some questions while raising others. However, the book is not without significant flaws.

The actual prose is dreadful. The authors never met a simile they didn't like or as.

And to say that their style is repetitive is, at best, an understatement. If I never again read the phrase "from ears to tail tip," it will be too soon. Perhaps worst of all, the authors begin in this installment to betray their own best talents. Both of the previous series displayed a fine ear for plot pacing and story-telling. This book handles the short arc well. The story of the cats' adventure in the mountains is well-told and character-driven. Unfortunately, the authors' treatment of the series' long arc begins noticeably to fall apart.

Anvils are dropping everywhere regarding who the kits are. The plot points are so conspicuous that I keep hearing soap opera organ music in my head as each one pops into view and waves.
