Surprising!

Erin Hunter delivers another exquisitely told story drawing readers in. I wasn’t sure about starting this new series after falling in LOVE with Fire Star and his clan but I’m glad I did. Falling in LOVE with this new set of characters is equally easy to do. This series is describing how the clans of the forest came to be and it’s interesting. I can’t wait to read the next book.

I love these books

These books are great and I love Erin hunters books in general. But I will admit I miss the original characters like fire star and greystripe. There is so much that has changed. And well at the end of every book I’m always at the end of my seat. So that’s a plus. Haha. Great writer. Very happy.

good book

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I loved the book so much that I listened to it more then once, I was surprised that it was the tribes ancestors and the clans ancestors, I am excited to get the next book. I totally recommend you listen to this book! I LOVE all of Erin Hunters book, and MacLeod Andrews voices for all of the characters, he makes them seem alive.

It’s a big loop

They go from the lake to the mountains. They go from the mountains to the forest. And in the new prophecy, they went back to the lake

The Dawn of the Clans, sort of....

I have been reading books from the Warriors franchise since Into the Wild was released. This would have to be the hardest themes that Kate and Cherith (the actual authors) have thrown at us. I found myself crying, screaming, and excited throughout.

You do not interact with any characters we have previously known, since these books are a prequel to the other series. You do get setting from the first series though! This had to be my favorite part, watching the cats travel and constantling trying to guess by the surrounding where they were.

I have binge read the next two books and will continue to add reviews, so look out for that if you want an on going opinion.

Same narrator as all the other novels, so it begins to feel like a father reading instead of the character narrating. The kittens voice is hard to swallow, but hang in there.

The last chapter forced me to buy the next book instantly, so beware if you can't afford two books currently.

The kitten's voice is annoying, but gets much better in later books.

These books deal a lot with parental abuse, so be weary if that hits a personal heart string.

This book is light on the heartache compared to the next two. If you have a hard time emotionally getting through this, I would not suggest you continue. Thankfully the other series have different themes and you should be able to find one you can connect with in a good way.

Follow the rising sun

I like this book a lot!
The story is good. I like how the cats journey from the Rushing Water Cavern to the Forest Territory. Clear sky is not so nice though. ( spoiler alert) I mean, who would kick his own brother out of a clan just because his leg was taking a long time to heal!
Graywing is a really nice character. I deal like he does handle himself okay, but puts to much pressure on himself for not being able to keep Brightstream from getting carried away. In conclusion, this book is really good. I recommend it for cat lovers and people seeking adventurous books. I also like the fact that the cats Of The Rushing Water Cavern used to live at the lake, and that the cats who lived in the forest did the same. I hope that anyone who reads this book will like it. Erin Hunter is the best!
