Blurb: ShadowClan has a dark new leader, but will he be satisfied with his power now — or does his desire for revenge burn even more strongly? Fireheart fears that there is a connection between the rise of Tigerstar and the terrible dreams that haunt his nights, murmuring of danger and death.
Meanwhile, a mysterious and vicious threat unlike any other has invaded the forest, placing every cat’s life in peril. Fireheart’s beloved leader has turned her back on their warrior ancestors, and Fireheart can’t help but wonder if she’s right. Has StarClan abandoned them forever?
Review: More tension in this book, mostly with Bluestar still thinking everyone is a traitor and the threat of the dog pack. I had forgotten all about Brightpaw and Brindleface here, oh my goat, I wanted to cry.
I was in church when Tigerstar left Brindleface’s body outside the camp and Cloudtail was the one to find her, I had to stop myself from crying.
I also just feel like a weight has been lifted now that Mistyfoot and Stonefur know that Bluestar was their mother.
The writing is still sucking me in and keeping my hooked, though I did find one little typo that I hadn’t noticed the other times I read the book but still, I absolutely love this story and the others in the series.
The original cover is intense, I actually had someone say that it was scary, but this new cover is so pleasing to look at. It’s so mystic and soothing, unlike the new cover for Rising Storm, why would they do that to the readers? I wanted to cry all over again.
The pace was great, allowing for a few things to happen while also keeping the mystery of the pack up front.
Love this series and I will recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading fantasy, adventure and talking cats.
Thank you for reading my review.
