One secret could destroy them all. . . .
Yellowkit is a ShadowClan cat through and through and she can't wait to become a fearless warrior. Then Yellowkit trains as an apprentice and finally receives her warrior name, Yellowfang—and much to her surprise, she realizes that her paws weren't meant to shed blood. Her true destiny lies as a healer, and she takes her place as ShadowClan's medicine cat apprentice.
But Yellowfang's dreams are haunted by a dark prophecy, and every paw step she takes seems drenched in heartache. As she struggles to separate herself from her warrior past, she realizes that the future she faces is bleak and dim—colored by a devastating secret that could destroy the warrior Clans.

This is one of the most intriguing novel that I have read in a very long time and even so, the reader learns countless lessons throughout the novel. Yellowfang’s powerful journey connects with very strong shows of, courage, strength and always never giving up even when it things seem hopeless. The novel shows theses traits by using, descriptive language, highlighting key moments and by showing action when there should be. In the end, we learn that things are not what they appear to be.
The story takes place in a fantasy land looks very much lie ours, except for the fact that the point of views in the series of books are of the view of cats, that have for clans that are always at war. And for our character Yellowfang she will have to deal with the fact that you can never have peace when there can be war. Even because of this there is a long time of peace until it is broken.
Starting out, Yellowfang finds it really different in the world and the author really tries to describe thing s that are in Yellowfang's point of view. And by doing so it really helps the story out in a positive way. One example of this starts with, “Littlebird, her ginger pelt glowing in the warm light, sat up, giving the other elders an amused glance,”(page 8). In this it is really describing what is around Yellowfang as well as the other cats in the clan. Another example of this that describes something similar starts with, “ Claws of frost clung to Yellowfang's pelt, and she almost asked if they could go back to camp,”(page 60). In this part of the story it is really describing to us that we are in a time that it is very cold outside so the author resides you of this by describing the cold. And by doing so we know for the cuter that the author doesn't have to keep on describing the same thing over and over again.
Our hero, Yellowfang from Shadowclan, volunteers, to be a medicine cat even though that will mean that she can not have kits. And even because of this she still does it. Yellowfang’s struggles in the novel are described in action. One piece of evidence says, “ ‘There is a cat coming,’ he meowed, ‘a cat who should never be born, whose life will bring fire and blood to the forest,’”(page 311). In this moment there is a prophecy that is talking about a cat that should not have been born and with Yellowfang being in the middle of this prophecy is a great responsibility. Another piece of evidence say, “ ‘If they go on like that, they will only fuel the rumors that Brokenkit is Foxheart’s,’”(page 341).In this it is very similar because Lionfang is watching another cat that is getting credit for her kit and that is very responsible of Lionfang given the situation that she is in and the reader describes this with action.
Near the end of the novel the author is really trying to show that Yellowfang has really changed with never giving and always trying to find the best in life even when that might seem impossible to do at times. The author shows this by expressing key moments.The first example of this starts out with, “ ‘From this moment on,’ Brokenstar’s voice announced, ‘you will be known as Mosspaw,’”(page 451). In this part of the novel it is telling the reader about how Brokenstar is turning kits into apprentices when they are too young. With this it is really hard for Yellowfang to just stand back. Another piece of evidence starts with, “ ‘I must banish you from Shadowclan,’”(page 491). In this part of the novel our hero has just been banished from her clan. And because of this rather important part in this novel the author makes sure to express this key moment in this novel.
After reading this amazing book I realized that it showed many great features that I have shown all throughout this review. And we find out in the end that things are not always as they appear to be. The author shows this by, expressing key moment, using descriptive language and by showing action were there should be. This book is a 5 out of 5 stars, an A-, and a double thumbs up with a novel that I will definitely read again.

Comparing this to Tallstar's Revenge...
1. In this book, it says Shrewclaw's mentor was Redclaw, but it Tallstars Revenge it says Hareflight is the mentor.
2. When Yellowfang had her apprentice Runningnose, Hawkheart had Barkface. But in Tallstars Revenge, Barkface trained around the same time as Tallstar. And when Yellowfang was a warrior apprentice, she battled Tallpaw and his mentor. Why is that?
3. Cedarstar announced that SILVERFLAME had given birth to kits just before Talltail left WindClan. (In Tallstar's Revenge.)
1. Foxheart's name really suits her. Fox hearted cat!
2. I like the comic bit, where it said Molepelt said Brokenstar had a choice. So surprising!
3. I heard Clawface was in the Dark Forest. Why? He doesnt deserve to be there.
Otherwise, great book!!! <^_^>

Foxheart? Please what did she do to earn heart? Also, Foxheart is a warriors curse. Much as she is one, a little harsh....
Mousewing, just no. Mice don't have wings. What about Mousestep or Mousetail?
Overall, great, almost perfect! Just the names
