Blurb: With a divided StarClan driving a treacherous rift between the four warrior Clans, the spirits of the Dark Forest are gaining strength. Ivypool’s role as a spy becomes more dangerous with each passing day, and Dovewing is haunted by nightmares about the mountains.
Then an outsider appears in ThunderClan’s midst, spreading discord and pushing the Clans farther apart. As tensions mount and Clanmates turn against one another, the warrior cats will be forced to choose whose word they can trust–before it’s too late.
Review: This was just full of drama. Even though I needed to go to sleep, I just had to stay up to finish it. I like to think that that’s how a good book is written. That no matter how many times you read it, no matter that you actually know what’s going to happen, you are still filled with that anticipation, that tension that makes you hang onto the edge of your seat.
Now, I admit that there were some missed opportunities for an emotional scene but the drama and spiraling out of control just made up for it. The emotion that the three are going through and their slow, slow, slow approach to the wrong that was done to them is quite realistic in this unrealistic world. I just loved it.
There was a bit of shock value, at least I think it’s shock value. There was no reason for it other than shock value in my opinion. We’re getting down to the nitty gritty here, it’s the second to last book of this particular series in the Warriors so I just don’t think it was necessary?
The writing just sunk its claws into me and after the couple of filler books, it was a welcome change. The pace was perfect, letting everything that needed to happen happen in the smoothest way.
Of course I would recommend all the Warriors books to everyone, they’re a pretty great series even for those who aren’t the target audience.
Thank you for reading my review.
