  • Timothy Simakov
    NO, NO THIS IS NOT OK! I finally finish this amazing book series, content with the fact that the clan will live peacefully and I cant treasure it in my heart, BUT NO THEY HAD to make another series, where everyone I know is dead or old. IDK about new cats, I want all the old cats. I could have died a happy man if they just ENDED IT or at least have started on another group of cats. This is NOT OK.

    First, here is my before-reading commentary/review.(view spoiler)[Okay. So it's been a bit since I've heard about this new series, and I have mixed feelings. I've been a fan of Warriors since age 10, and I still love the books. They're action packed, fun, and have characters you love and love to hate. They're the series that truly hooked me in on reading.However, I guess I was under the impression that Bramblestar's Storm was meant to wrap up the...

    I LOVE the Warriors series, but... I think Erin Hunter needs to stop writing. They're getting predictable and they all basically have the same plot. Mysterious prophecy, chosen Thunderclan warriors/apprentice who needs to figure out the prophecy, etc. Oh, and of course the chosen one is a blood relative of Firestar. Don't get me wrong, I love Firestar, but it's getting a little old. I really liked the introduction of Skyclan. Will they bring Skyc...

    If you want to figure out everybody's names on your own, don't read this review!Dewpaw: Dewnose, Amberpaw: Ambermoon, Snowpaw: Snowbush, Fernpaw: Fernsong, Hollypaw: Hollytuft, Sorrelpaw: Sorrelstripe. Just so you know, Lilyheart and Snowbush have kits: Larkkit (tom) and Honeykit and Leafkit (she-kits)! Heathertail and Breezepelt's kits are named Brindlekit and Smokekit.

    5 starsVery good book. Nice start to a new series in the Warriors Universe. RIP Sandstorm. Hope she and Firestar are happy together again. Liked the introduction of Bramblestar and Squirrelflights's kits, Alderpaw and Sparkpaw. Wonder if Twigkit and Violetkit will be okay. Hope the clans will be able to save SkyClan. Can't wait to read Thunder and Shadow!!!
  • Liza
    Well then. This book did not go well.I went into this book full of apprehension.I felt like the Last Hope was a great way to end the main series with Bramblestar's Storm rounding it out and giving us a little glimpse on future clan life. Sure, despite not enjoying the DoTC arc, it was something different and unique.This?This I felt was completely unneeded.I feel like the meeting went like this:(And I think Vicky is not involved with the story now...

    This is my least favorite Warriors book, and considering that the Erin’s have written over 100, that’s quite a feat.I’m in no way trying to hate on the series, and I know a lot of people who follow my reviews love this series. I’m a fan myself, in fact I wouldn’t even be a reader without these books, but I, as a reviewer, am giving my honest opinion.Let’s get onto it; for 90% of this book I was falling asleep.When you write nearly 100...
  • Snazzy Reads
    Good (better than expected)I rated this book 4.5 stars after me finding out these books, against popular belief in my class, are good
  • Ale Brito
    Basically nothing happens. Or, to be more accurate, same thing that happened at the beginning of The new Prophecy.It's boring to read the same thing ALL OVER again. Alderpaw is basically Brambleclaw and Needlepaw is a second Squirrelflight. To make it worse, Molewhisker, Cherryfall and Sparkpaw are boring as hell, not nearly as interesting as Crowpaw, Feathertail, Tawnypelt and Stormfur.So yeah, save your time for now. I'll read the next one beca...

    *This review was originally published on RachelPoli.comBOOK COVERThe covers for the series as a whole got a make-over. The covers all look gorgeous and even though these are “new” for earlier books, this is the first edition cover for A Vision of Shadows. I really like the colors and think the art style is beautiful.FIRST THOUGHTSAfter reading Omen of the Stars, I hopped right into this series since I’m trying to catch up on the books befor...
  • Loretta Marchize
    This was a great book, just as good as the other Warriors books, but I felt like they should have stopped at The Last Hope It was just such a good ending to the series. (view spoiler)[I mean, you start with Firestar, and you end with Firestar. No, wait never mind, Alderpaw's gonna get a book too! (hide spoiler)]Now besides my misgivings, Squirrelflight has always been my favorite cat, so I did enjoy this. (she wasn't in it much, but, well, you kn...

    2015-10-18 &“Embrace what you find in the shadows, for only they can clear the sky.”The clans have lived in peace for many moons since the great battle, however, a new prophecy threatens to destroy the peace. A time of great change if coming for cats of all clans, and they’ll need to figure our how to find what’s in the shadows if they want to save themselves. Though the Warrior C...
  • Michelle K. *Get off my lawn!*
    So. There's a standalone Warriors installment where Firestar goes in search of a missing fifth Clan, Skyclan, and he saves them and teaches them to be a Clan because they are just a mess; Skyclan's early days of coexistence with the other Clans is chronicled in the Dawn of the Clans arc, where the other Clans shape them into a proper Clan, because they are just a mess. Now it seems we have another arc doing the very same thing.And what kind of en...

    The Warriors series I didn't think was going to happen. When Vicky Holmes was touring as Erin Hunter, she talked about how she thought she might take a visit back to the lake territory, but she wasn't sure. I actually didn't realize that anything came after Bramblestar's Storm until I saw this at Barnes and Noble earlier this year. When I started this book the other day, I was a bit put off by the events occurring. By the time I finished it, I st...

    Apprentice’s Quest Alderpaw a ThunderClan apprentice wants to be a warrior. After having a vision he becomes a medicine cat. They go on a quest to find the lost Clan: SkyClan. But SkyClan is now gone and may never be found again.
  • Audrey
    What is this, the sixth warriors series? Wow. They've gone far.Anyway, so Firestar has died, and Brambleclaw/star has taken over as leader. Thunderclan has a plethora of new cats. The main character for this series seems to be Alderpaw, Bramblestar and Squirrelflight's actual kit. When I first started this book, I immediately loved Alderpaw. He had a complex pertaining to never being as good as his parents. And sad to say, he is a bit of a failur...
  • Shira
    Spoilers ahead by the plot section.(High rating due to improvement over previous warriors books)Maybe even 5 stars I feel this is way better than the previous warriors books. Let's hope the series stays that way!So as I said above, I feel this one was a lot better. Though in the end not much happens, and I'm not sure I like that, but overall I think it's better than way, that it's not SO desperate on getting everything figured out in the first bo...

    *spoilers for previous series included. Some details about the plot included; read at your own discretion. I recommend you read my review only if you have already read this book.*Well...this book was not what I was expecting. Not sure if that's good or bad.I thought Warriors' writing was getting better after Dawn of the Clans and the latest novella collection that contained Mapleshade's Vengeance. But...the start to this series was rather boring ...
  • Camille
    Although something about this series feels slightly different from the other four Warrior Cats series, it's definitely not a bad thing. There's a new dynamic within this book that I'm excited to see developed further in the series. However, it still has the classic characteristics of a Warrior Cats novel and combining these two things have created another flawless Warrior Cats novel.As for the story, I'm extremely intrigued as to how they're goin...
  • Emily
    Not really sure how I feel about this one. Started today, finished today, so it kept my interest as any other Warrior book does. But there are some things I'm just unsure about. Probably going to be some spoilers below, so don't keep reading if you don't want to see. Alright. So as a whole, I feel like not much happened in this book. Yes, it is the first book in the series, so I'm hoping that within the next two books or so things were pick up. B...
  • Kelly
    Very decent start to a new arc in the Warriors series. Due to perfect circumstances, I was able to read this within a 24-hour period, and I think that played heavily into my enjoyment of the book. If I had to put it down for a couple days and then return to it, I'm not sure it would have held the same impact. Either way, it's already much better than Bramblestar's Storm, and holds more promise than the Dawn of the Clans.I like the new "main" char...
  • Eli Lenett
    The Apprentice's Quest by Erin Hunter is one of my favorite books in the entire warrior's series, and it is a great breath of fresh air for the series. First of all, the plot and interesting personalities of the characters were thought out great, and it kept the book always interesting and fresh. Although the journey the characters took in the book was slightly familiar, it still had some new interesting twists. I also loved the way the book was ...
