Summary

Summary

The young cats who set off on a quest many moons ago have returned with a chilling message: The Clans must move to a new home, or risk extermination. But the dangers waiting for them beyond their borders are impossible to predict, and the cats have no idea where to go. What they need is a sign from StarClan. . . .

Horn Book Review

In the third and fourth books in this series, the cats abandon their homes and travel to the new place foretold by StarClan. The Clans adapt to working together, then must separate to establish new territories. Hunter easily balances multiple plot lines and points of view, creating a believable world.

Kirkus Review

The plight of the four cat Clans becomes desperate in this third installment of a series with good plotting but cloying diction. Twolegs (humans) and their monsters (bulldozers) are destroying the woods and moors where the Clans live. The Twolegs fell oaks, capture and cage any cats they get their hands on and rip ShadowClan's den right out of the ground. Prey is dangerously scarce. There's been a message from StarClan (ancestor gods) about the Clans striking out for new territory. But where and when? Should the Clans travel together or remain rivals? Hunter intersperses action sequences with stretches of plot-appropriate waiting, during which the cats are hungry and anxious. Religion and conflicting loyalties are well-integrated themes. "Meowed" and "mewed" (replacing "said") and the twee term "kittypet" lower the narrative's dignity, while the cats' annoyingly similar names (Leafpaw, Squirrelpaw, Brambleclaw) run together. However, a current of warmth runs underneath the distractingly precious prose, making the cats easy to care about.

Booklist Review

Gr. 6-9. The third book in Warriors: The New Prophecy series finds the four clans being driven from their territories as the Twolegs relentlessly denude the forest with their huge machines. The small band of cats that undertook a quest for the StarClan returns home with a new mission: to persuade all the clans to unify for a long, dangerous journey to a new home. The feline characters remain true to their natures, and, as expected, the danger level is high. Fans will relish this eminently satisfying episode in a series rooted in Hunter's first Warriors novel, Into the Wild (2002). --Sally Estes Copyright 2005 Booklist
