I enjoyed this book for many reasons. The plot continues from the previous book and is entertaining. The writing captures and holds the reader's attention. The characters continue to be well-developed and appealing. Overall, the big idea could be that sometimes we have to look within ourselves for the truth. ( )

When an eleven year old sighs for months saying he wishes you could read this book, you read this book. Right, Jules?

Definitely a kids' book, a little bit predictable and paced a little fast for my liking (but then, I'm not a kid), but still enjoyable for an older audience.

I was very reluctant to read this, not because I thought it wouldn't be good, but because I was forced to read this second installment before the first, since the first was taken out of the library and said library is a little too far away for me to consider taking a trip just for one book. It was easy enough to grasp what had happened in the first book.

While this is a children's book, it brings up some great points for discussion with older children. I liked the inclusion of prejudice against "kittypets" and of the conflict between Graystripe and Fireheart. Fireheart's struggle to prove himself as a Clan member, having been a kittypet, is understandable and could provide a good jumping-off point for many discussions about judging people based on their pasts, rumours about them, and the like. Graystripe's inner struggle (which I won't describe here, for fear of spoilers) is a very young-adult kind of struggle that could apply to groups of friends going through conflict for the same reason.

This series could be a good one to use to get older, reluctant children to read because of the inclusion of these issues. Older children can relate to them while still being able to understand the writing itself.

I will probably read more of this series, as Hunter has left me wanting to see what happens. ( )

Tigerclaw is hiding something... something that could destroy everything.
Brokenstar had driven out WindClan from their own territory and made sure they were far away and wouldn't come back. on the way to the gathering Fireheart tried to tell Bluestar that Ravenpaw saw Tigerclaw killed Redtail and wanted to kill Ravenpaw, but she didn't believe him and got angry . At the first gathering Fireheart had as a warrior, all the clans were there but WindClan. Everyone was curious until Brokenstar said his clan drove them out because ShadowClan "needed" more hunting ground. Fireheart went hunting one day and caught a familiar sent, he found out that it was his sister Princess. He told his life and she gave him her strongest kit, Cloudkit. Fireheart took in a apprentice named Cinderpaw, she was very hyper and didn't listen much. Fireheart asked Bluestar if he could go bring back WindClan, and get their territory back, but Bluestar said she needed him here now that leaf-fall way coming. But Fireheart & Graystripe left anyway and set off toward the carrion place by sent. Fireheart found them and convinced Tallstar to bring his clan back to get what was rightfully theirs. On the way back some cats got injured by the rats and some didn't make it back. when they got back Fireheart got ThunderClan to help fight with WindClan to get what was theirs. They won and everything was almost right, Brokenstar still needed to be dealt with later.

This book was my favorite out of the 6 because in my opinion it was all actions and secrets that could end a cat or clan's life. Another reason was when Fireheart went behind Bluestar's back to help a rival clan. Fireheart had to prove so much to the ThunderClan cats that he can be loyal to his clan and follow the Warrior Code. But yet he broke 2, almost lost his clan's trust, and his life. I also like this specific one because was trying to tell cats about Tigerclaw but they never listened because of his kittypet (house cat) past but he never gave up. ( )

A little bit of (in my opinion) needless meandering in the middle but overall a well-paced, fun-to-read book. My kids and I thoroughly enjoyed it. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
For my son, Joshua, whose smiles kept me happy as I wrote, and Vicky, my editor, without whom Fireheart would never have become a warrior. Special thanks to Kate Cary.
First words
Orange flames lapped at the cold air, throwing sparks up into the night sky.
Quotations
"Leopardfur lifted her head and yowled into the wind, 'Whiteclaw! No!' Graystripe scrambled backward until all four paws were on safe ground. His wet fur was bristling and his eyes were wide with shock. 'I tried to grab him...he just lost his footing...I didn't mean to...'"

Deep in the heart of the forest, four clans of warrior cats coexist in uneasy harmony -- but uncertain times are upon them, and dangers threaten the precarious balance of the forest.

Fireheart is a ThunderClan warrior cat now, but his troubles are far from over. As the chill of winter sets in, the cats of rival RiverClan grow restless, while WindClan is weak and facing threats from all sides.
