Publisher's Summary

Discover the origins of the warrior Clans in the third book of this thrilling Warriors prequel series from number-one nationally best-selling author Erin Hunter. The Dawn of the Clans series takes listeners back to the earliest days of the Clans, when the cats first settled in the forest and began to forge the warrior code. 

The rivalry between Gray Wing and Clear Sky has driven a bitter wedge between the forest cats. As Thunder and Gray Wing struggle to find a peaceful path for the future, tensions are growing. What began as a misunderstanding between two brothers has spread far and wide - and now every mountain cat, rogue, and kittypet in the forest will be forced to pick a side.

Um.. okay you will hate or love this one.....

I have listened to these books back to back up till now. I read the first three series as a child and recently picked them back up at age 23. At this point, I'm frustrated with the writing. The main characters have arcs that move at the rate of a snail and multiple scenes/chapters left me completely unsatisfied. The big moment at the end not only disappointed, but almost ruined one of my favorite parts about the other series. I plan on continuing with this series, since I am dedicated to knowing how the clans were created. I don't have a lot of hope moving forward though.

Sadly this series feels filled with plot conveniences at this point. Plus certains deaths left me asking, "why," instead of being emotionally attached in anyway. I also have lost interest in all the POVs since they are insanely naive and barely learn from their mistakes at this point, unless forced to. If you are alarmed by this review, look at the next and see what happened.
