Blurb: Destined for greatness . . .
Four Clans of wild cats have shared the forest for generations, thriving in their territories. But tensions are running high, and ThunderClan must assert its strength or risk falling prey to its power-hungry neighbors.
Into this time of uncertainty, a kit is born. A prophecy foretells that Bluekit will be as strong as fire, destined to blaze through the ranks of her Clan. But with this prophecy comes the foreshadowing of her destruction by the one enemy she cannot outrun.
As Bluekit gains power and eventually earns her leader name, Bluestar, she fights to protect her Clan. But secrets from the past threaten to surface–secrets that may destroy ThunderClan . . . and Bluestar.
Review: This was just full of emotion, the writing just tugged on all of my heart strings.
I remember the first time I read this book when Moonflower helped Snowpaw and Bluepaw fix up their nests the night before the raid on WindClan and I just had this horrible feeling that something bad was going to happen and re-reading it, even knowing what was going to happen, I still got that bad feeling.
I hate and love the authors for their amazing writing in bringing this world to life and for capturing the emotions of their readers.
Oh and when Bluepaw tried to wake her mother up, that was emotional by itself but then it reminds this reader about Simba trying to wake Mufasa up and I just want to cry all over again.
The cover is pretty, I really like the one for the hardback, the pace was great for the length of the book and the story. The writing is excellent, I was just sucked right in and brought on an emotional rollercoaster.
The Super Editions and the novellas will most likely be the only set of books that I will read and suggest be read out of order. It just makes more sense to me that way.
Thank you for reading my review.
