Blurb: The return of a long lost Clan . . .
Many moons ago, five warrior Clans shared the forest in peace. But as Twolegs encroached on the cats’ territories, the warriors of SkyClan were forced to abandon their home and try to forge a new life far away. Eventually, the Clan disbanded–forgotten by all until Firestar was sent on a quest to reunite its descendants and return SkyClan to its former glory.
Now, with Leafstar in place as leader, SkyClan is thriving. Leafstar is desperate to believe that her Clan will survive where the ancient SkyClan cats failed. But threats continue to plague the Clan, and as dissent grows from within, Leafstar must face the one question she dreads: Is SkyClan meant to survive?
Review: I never really liked SkyClan all that much when Firestar and Sandstorm went on the journey to find them in Firestar’s Quest and then Leafstar has to go and let kittypets join with a paw in both worlds.
I guess it’s just having read all of the Super Editions, the novellas and The Prophecy Begins where being a kittypet isn’t a good thing and you have to make a choice but Leafstar didn’t make them make a choice.
The story wasn’t all that great either, I feel like the authors just wrote it so they could have a follow up SkyClan book out there since it’ll never be mentioned again as far as I know. I would say shock value but it’s a thick Super Edition so, I don’t think I can really say that.
The writing was alright, not any better than the other books but I think it was just the story in general that I didn’t really like.
The paperback cover is generic but the hardback cover is beautiful, making the story seem more interesting than it actually is, and the story kind of drags on. Even though there was a lot going on, it just seemed stagnant and boring.
Thank you for reading my review.
