    In this one, everyone yells for 598 hours about borders and who should run Windclan. Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight refuse to talk to each other over stupid reasons, and Leafpool has a sexual awakening realizing Crowfeather is hawt, but remembers she is a magical nun. Fun times.

My regular readers will remember that I'm working my way through this young adult series that depicts the lives of an entire culture of cats living in the wild. This is the second set of six books about these cats and I am happy to report this book returns to the roots of what makes these books great. I really enjoyed the first 6 "Warriors" books and felt the series stood complete at the end of that first set of novels. It was a complete cycle. I had been sceptical about starting a new set of books, wary of a "next generation" syndrome that may have succombed to being only a copy of the original. Trying to "do it again" only to enhance the financial income of the authors/publishers as opposed to moving on to something else is something I am always concerned with because I tend to read quite a few series. And sure enough, when I tried the first book of this "New Prophecy" series, Midnight, my worries seemed well founded. It was difficult for me to switch gears to a new set of protagonists while the old ones were still around. The Firestar character from the first 6 books was a genuine hero but now he would have to be squeezed into a supporting role. The books were still well written, and absorbing in their own way but it has taken me until this 4th book to get comfortable in the new skin. Perhaps I am just used to this new set of heroes now but I think it is due more to the plot settling down. The first 3 books of this set were all about moving the entire society of cats to a new home due to the infestation of human activity at their old home. Danger was everywhere with no time to rest. But now they have found their new home and this book is much more about building their new home, setting clan boundaries, and becoming 4 clans once again, instead of one bigger uneasy clan. We get to see a return to normalcy in many respects including naming ceremonies, warrior training, and consultations with the spirtual Star Clan ancesters. Clan differences are once again allowed to provide conflict and adventure instead of relying on the great unknown for everything. In short, this novel brings the series back to its roots. And it doesn't hurt that I am comfortable with the new heroes now. Don't get me wrong; I don't blame the authors at all for having to uproot everything we have come to know and love about this feline society. That's the only way to prevent the "let's do it again" syndrome. And now, after completing Starlight, I am confident that I will look back at the end of this second set of 6 books and see it as another fantastic addtion to the universe of young adult literature. Two more books to go and I'll be sure to let you know!

    This book wasn't one of my favorites in the Warriors series, I don't like the way Brambleclaw is acting right now. He keeps worrying about Tigerstar and all that stuff.... It's getting a little bit annoying when the Tigerstar thing keeps being brought up. But, it was still a good book, just compared to the others it was a little slow.

    I really loved this one! It was full of suspense and intrigues that I just needed to finish it as soon as possible. The 4 clans have now found their new home and marked their territories, but the old grudges are still there. As good as Firestar is, he just can't fix everything. I wonder when he'll be able to see that. There are some storylines that I look forward to: Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight, Leafpool and Crawfeather, but also the plans of Hawkwind.

    Eh this was okay. Least they're quick audios. I don't like Tallstar's decision in this one, and the anger between Squirrel and Bramble bugs me. I like Leaf's journey, and how they're setting up their new homes. The nostalgia I feel when I read these is so crazy, as they were my favourite childhood series more than 10 years ago.

    Ok, am I the only one that didn't see Leaf Pool and Crow Feather coming? Because that was so freaking sweet and I loved it. This is the first Warriors audiobook that I've listened to without MacLeod Andrews. This narrator is very good, but it's hard to change. It's weird that she is using accents to differentiate cats when Andrews used tone. Ok, am I the only one that didn't see Leaf Pool and Crow Feather coming?

    Sadly, I was rather disappointed in this one. It was even slower than the first book was. I was hopeful that this second series would turn out like the first one, as the last two books picked up quite a bit. I'm still holding out hope for the last two! It breaks my heart that it's lost the magic of the first series - I was obsessed and I want that back! Basically nothing happened in this one. NOTHING. The entire 320 pages consisted of nothing but the Clans settling into their new home. Exploring. Sadly, I was rather disappointed in this one. It was even slower than the first book was.

I knew it was coming but it still makes me sad.) There was a bit of a fight and he just...died. Just like that. It felt really anticlimactic. I do wonder about Hawkfrost, though - there's clearly something going on there. Why would Mudclaw lie about his involvement? He's a nasty kitty, but he was always open about it. Hmm. (hide spoiler)] I am hoping that Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight resolve their issues in the next book. I'm thinking it's going to take Hawkfrost betraying Brambleclaw for it to happen. It makes me so sad that she told him that they weren't meant to be!! I need them to have babies together, haha.

Leafpaw and Brambleclaw are the cats this book follows and Leafpaw...falls in love. Well...sort of. There isn't much development between her and Crowfeather and I wish there were more. It seems rushed and uncertain, as if the Erins didn't know how to handle their relationship. Brambleclaw on the other hand trades in Squirrelflight for his half brother Hawkfrost, though I do identify more with Brambleclaw's way of thinking than Squirrelflight. He doesn't know of his half brothers dangerous ambitions and Squirrelflight is only going off hearsay from her sister's knowledge of the Riverclan warrior. Poor Brambleclaw lost his sister to Shadowclan, and his father who he never knew much, he's had to outlive his father's shadow time and again and here he finds he has more kin in Riverclan and he ends up losing his lover now too. I think Brambleclaw's and Squirrelflight's parts were written well.

So far in the story windclan, shadowclan, thunderclan, and riverclan had to leave the forest because twolegs where starting to tear it down. After three days of walking, they finally find another forest to live in. They send five cats, Brambleclaw, Crowfeather, Tawnypelt, Mistyfoot, and squirrelflight to look around the lake and find a place for all of the clans to live. The prediction that I have for this book is that I think that all of the clans will find a home and they will be able to build up their base to defend out any unwanted predators.

    Starlight in comparison to many other Warriors books lacks a lot of fighting, but it makes up for it in the sheer amount of drama that transpires on the adventure. Plot 4.5/5★ The plot of Starlight is rather simple, but adds twists and turns that nobody can truly expect or predict. We are in unfamiliar territory now, literally. There is no way to really know where its going, or how we might get there. Instead, we learn what will happen just as the characters do, which is what makes Starlight great Starlight in comparison to many other Warriors books lacks a lot of fighting, but it makes up for it in the sheer amount of drama that transpires on the adventure. Plot 4.5/5★ The plot of Starlight is rather simple, but adds twists and turns that nobody can truly expect or predict. We are in unfamiliar territory now, literally. There is no way to really know where its going, or how we might get there. Instead, we learn what will happen just as the characters do, which is what makes Starlight great in my eyes. The fate of many characters is uncertain, and there are no promises, which adds to the suspense and makes it a very difficult book to put down at times. The only caveat is that at times the lack of action can be very noticeable, and it feels like the story itself has been drawn out. I believe Starlight along with Dawn is what made me realize that the plot of Warriors could easily be 5 Stars all across the books if they were not Middle Grade fantasy. It's something I've come to accept, but its interesting to think about how each series would be if they were a trilogy or a quarter, instead of six books with slower parts within each. Style 5/5★ Since there has been no major changes in Erin Hunter's style since Midnight I feel confident giving this the same five star rating. The books of Warrior Cats, and particular The New Prophecy are filled with vivid imagery that set them apart from other middle grade reads. Characters 4.5/5★ To the version of myself that said the characters were dull back when I read Midnight, you weren't wrong then, but you'd be shocked now. The characters of Starlight are still the characters of the entire series, but there are just so many on the sidelines now that its almost hard to keep track. And you will find yourself invested in almost every single one. (Perhaps you will even hope some did not exist). As expected with sticking by the narrator's for so long by this point any reader will have come to be both ensnared in many of their actions, and also critical of almost anything stupid they might do. I'm very excited to see where each of the characters' destiny's lie. Overall 4.5/5★ Starlight definitely builds on the end of Dawn in all the expected ways, however it poses far more questions than it really answers (though what Warriors Cat book really answers questions besides the Super Editions?). You'll also find that the return to "life" in Warriors is a bit dull. Not in the sense that it is boring, but in that you had hoped things would be different now. However, the characters are with you, so not all hope is lost. Twilight and Sunset certainly have their work cut out for them.

    Although I definitely enjoyed these more as a kid, I still find them enjoyable. They're a great break from the high fantasy I usually read because they're super quick. Sure, I get irritated by them at times, but they're a nostalgia read for me. This arc isn't one of my favorites. The angst between Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight is much more irritating than it used to be, as its just miscommunication.

I know this is a children's book, but I do wish the relationships were developed a bit more. Especially the one between Crowfeather and Leafpool. They were professing their love at the end, and it just felt a bit sudden and unnecessary. I love revisiting this series every few years as a quick read, and this time is no exception

    They arrive at their new home and trouble breaks out pretty much immediately. A story thread begins that compares faith to lack of faith (and, in one instance, blind faith on the part of Firestar) that lasts the rest of this series. My main complaint at this point is that the books end in a way that doesn't properly seem 'finished', especially the inevitable 6th installment. (I've now read all six of this series so that's my conclusion). They arrive at their new home and trouble breaks out pretty much immediately.

But the young tom isn't the only cat with divided loyalties, and a haunting prophecy from StarClan predicts a battle-scarred near future for all the Clans: "Before there is peace, blood will spill blood, and the lake will run red…" Story/Writing: Dang it! How do these authors keep coming up with hit after hit after hit in this series?! Does any series have the right to be this consistently good?! In all seriousness, this book was a complete and total blast! It reminded me a lot of "Dawn" in the first half. Whereas the second half of "Dawn" was mainly about the Clans journeying to their new home, the first half of "Starlight" is mainly about the Clans exploring and setting up new territories. I am in no way saying the first half of "Dawn" and the second half of "Starlight" were not good. It was just a similarity I noticed. But beyond that, "Starlight" is definitely a great and fantastic "Warriors" title all on its own! Things come up that I read about in previous books that end up playing a huge part in this one. And new conflicts that I didn't really see coming did the same. I felt so many emotions reading this that, by the time I got to the last chapter, my brain kinda forced me to read much slower than I usually do in order to just process the onslaught of feels I was getting. Drama – when it's not pretentious, anyway – is one of my favorite genres and these women really brought it in this book! You know a book is good when it's got me invested in things I usually couldn't care less about! More on that in a little bit. I also want to bring up just how much of a good job the Erin Hunter team did of building this world where everything just feels real – for lack of a better word. They bring up just about every possible consideration when strategizing, planning tactics, setting up boundaries, etc. It very much feels like people settling in a new land, not just animals. And of course, sometimes when you settle into a new territory, things might get ugly. But sometimes, in a weird, ironic way, ugly makes for good storytelling! Characters: You might be wondering why I was feeling such a relentlessly felt attack of feels throughout reading this book. That's easy! It was the characters! Or, more specifically, the characters and their conflicts. I've already seen most of these new characters grow so much throughout this arc, and yet the authors still found some room to grow them even more! Brambleclaw – Breaking with the tradition set forth thus far in this arc, Mistyfoot is the cat on the cover (or Leafpool if you have the original print), but Brambleclaw is the one whose point of view we read through, like in "Midnight." And I wouldn't have it any other way! Brambleclaw is now one of my absolute favorite characters in this series. He has so many personal issues to deal with yet he still manages to put a brave face on and serve his Clan with all his heart and strength. He understands and respects Firestar's reluctance to make him deputy – since Firestar believes Graystripe is still alive – yet he feels the best way to be recognized for his hard work is to be made deputy. He also doesn't want to lose Squirrelflight, yet he wants to bond with his half-brother Hawkfrost and doesn't think Squirrelflight is being fair. As frustrated as I got with Brambleclaw and how he couldn't see that something was terribly wrong with him, Tigerstar, and Hawkfrost all meeting together in a dream – and in the old ThunderClan camp, no less – I really did get where he was coming from. He wishes he could have a bond with one of his kin like the one Squirrelflight and Leafpool share, but he doesn't have that luxury because his only full sibling lives in ShadowClan and his half-siblings live in RiverClan. He himself feels so frustrated and wants at least a little recognition, but doesn't believe he'll ever get it since he's Tigerstar's son – even though he should know by now that this isn't the case. All that said, I seriously hopes he recognizes his terrible error in judgment soon, and makes up with Squirrelflight! Leafpool – As with the previous three books, Leafpool's point of view is read through the other half of the book. And I gotta say, she's probably my favorite medicine cat since Moth Flight. Mainly because I find between them such a great parallel. Moth Flight found the Moonstone in the earliest days of the Clans, and Leafpool found the Moonpool at the start of a new era in the Clans' history. And just like Moth Flight, she was clearly born for the job. Not only does she have the gifts that usually come with those called to be medicine cats, her faith in StarClan has grown to the point where it's probably the strongest among all the other medicine cats, and for most of the book she's the only apprentice. Not to mention, she shows herself to be a really good judge of character. I liked how, even though she found out Mothwing lacks her strong belief in StarClan, she didn't belittle her or call her a fraud or anything, but in fact stood by her and didn't tattle on her to the other medicine cats. And while Crowfeather certainly ruffles her fur half the time, she can't stay angry with him because she's seen his character on the journey, in spite of the attitude he sometimes displays. At the same time, I really do appreciate how, even though she does feel drawn to Crowfeather and feels pity for his loss, she doesn't try to change him like some girls probably would. Squirrelflight – While we didn't get to read through Squirrelflight's point of view in this book, she's still one of my favorite characters all the same! One of my favorite parts is toward the beginning, when Firestar kicks off this new era in the history of the Clans by finally making his daughter a warrior and giving her her warrior name! I say finally because, after everything she's done in the previous three books, she seriously deserved it! And I'm so glad her father agreed! Moreover, even though I tend to be repelled by typical relationship "drama" in books, I was really invested in what was going on between her and Brambleclaw. As much as I understood the latter, I have to admit, I was on the former's side. And while it was unfortunate, I wasn't surprised when she basically tells him they're through. I am curious though to see how involved she gets with Ashfur, and where that'll go when she and Brambleclaw do make up. Hawkfrost – Oh man, what a sneaky, conniving little…fox-heart! Yeah, I said it! After seeing everything else he's done in the previous books and having just read what he's done here, I'm pretty much convinced that Hawkfrost is just a master manipulator. In a way, it's kinda sad, 'cause in the "Tigerstar and Sasha" trilogy, he was this cute tom-kit. But even cute kits can grow up to be monsters. Even if the book never outright says he's been visiting Tigerstar in his dreams for awhile, I wouldn't be surprised if that were the case. And whether he's trying to win Brambleclaw over to his side or just taking advantage of Brambleclaw's desire to bond with his kin, neither one wouldn't surprise me either. All I know is that he not only convinces Brambleclaw of his (false) innocence, but he does it with ease. He knew Mudclaw would rat him out, so he had to rat him out first. Ugh! What a…*insert cuss word of choice*! Crowfeather – I gotta say, I'm pleased with how much less of a pain in the tail Crowfeather has gotten since "Midnight." I know not all tom cats on the good side can be Brambleclaw and Firestar, nor do I even want them to be. That said, to describe how I feel about his character would be tricky. There are certainly still some things about him that frustrate me, but not necessarily in a bad way. While he's tremendously loyal to his Clanmates, he does fall in love with two non-WindClan she-cats (and one of them is a medicine cat). He totally respects and even stands up for the cats he's traveled with, but he's also the first one to erect the old barriers. Even then though, it's understandable because the last friend he got really close to was taken from him. Yet at the same time I want him to move on from Feathertail's death, and I'm glad she seems to think the same. I guess what I'm trying to say is he's an intriguing mix of contradictions. Various Other Characters – First off, happy hunting in StarClan, Tallstar! You stole my heart in your super edition and it's sad to see you go! That said, I'm glad you realized what a fox-heart Mudclaw is and appointed Onewhisker to be your successor instead. You made the right choice, no matter what any cat said! Still, I hope that Onewhisker becomes a stronger leader once he gets his nine lives. I understand his desire to remain on good terms with ThunderClan, but he also needs to remember to put his own Clan first. As for Mudclaw, even if he genuinely believed he was the rightful leader, he had absolutely no right to put his wishes above Tallstar's! Besides, he went behind his new leader's back and made alliances with Hawkfrost in RiverClan as well as some ShadowClan warriors to overthrow Onewhisker. I won't say whether or not his death was poetic justice, but at least Onewhisker's leadership is now secure. Moving on though, I felt for Mothwing in this book. Something about her has always felt a bit off to me, but I know she has good intentions. Even if she did accidentally poison some cats, she was willing to take water to all of them, regardless of what Clan they were from. And even if she doesn't believe in StarClan, she still wants to help others as a medicine cat. That said, I wish she was able to tell Leafpool what that moth's wing omen was really about. Let's just say, I have my suspicions. And while Mistyfoot isn't the character whose point of view we read – even though she's on the front cover – I give her major props for not just finding a new campsite for RiverClan, but also willingly risking her leader's ire by going to warn ThunderClan of Mudclaw's plans to overthrow Onewhisker! Overall: This was yet another thrilling, action-packed adventure in the "Warriors" series, and especially in the "New Prophecy" arc! It was great to see the Clans finally settle into their new home, and even better to see the beginning of a new era in their history. Now, one little nitpick I do have is that the chapters were really long. I guess the idea was to make me feel as tired as the cats sometimes were; in which case, it worked. But like I said, that's just a teensy nitpick of mine. This was undeniably a great book!

    I think the theme is when you're having a hard time persevere and believe that your going to make it. I think the theme is when you're having a hard time persevere and believe that your going to make it.

I like how before everyone's settled into their new home, cats attack with Mudclaw. But I am curious about Hawkfrost. Is he good to bad? I can't wait to find out what's going to happen!! These books have kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time! Can't wait to read some more. This was such a good book!

I can't believe that Brambleclaw is turning out to be like his father and letting 'kinship' blind him. **Warning: this text may contain spoilers** Loved reading about the clans setting up their new homes, figuring out new things and learning to let go of old friends.

    Warriors The New Prophecy: Starlight by Erin Hunter is the 4th book in the New Prophecy Series which is the 2nd arc of the book series Warriors. I really liked this book but the writing was kinda… off I guess you could say, at times. Especially the Leafpool and Crowfeather parts their forbidden romance thing just came out of nowhere and felt so artificial and lazy on the writers part.

I really liked this book but the writing was kinda… off I guess you could say, at times. Especially the Leafpool and Crowfeather parts their forbidden romance thing just came out of nowhere and felt so artificial and lazy on the writers part. It's like they just made the first two cats that were from different clans just fall in love just for the sake of having another forbidden romance because they needed to fill in chapters to make The New Prophecy series longer and make it extra edgy because Leafpools a medicine cat and the whole Feathertail thing happened. But other than that the way they described how the clans were settling into their new home actually felt really natural the way they felt that it just wasn't the same as in the forest but they knew this was the home Starclan chose for then was really nice and I could kinda relate to. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes edgy cats.
