Blurb: One secret could destroy them all . . .
Yellowkit is a ShadowClan cat through and through and she can’t wait to become a fearless warrior. Then Yellowkit trains as an apprentice and finally receives her warrior name, Yellowfang–and much to her surprise, she realizes that her paws weren’t meant to shed blood. Her true destiny lies as a healer, and she takes her place as ShadowClan’s medicine cat apprentice.
But Yellowfang’s dreams are haunted by a dark prophecy, and every paw step she takes seems drenched in heartache. As she struggles to separate herself from her warrior past, she realizes that the future she faces is bleak and dim–colored by a devastating secret that could destroy the warrior Clans.
Review: This was not a five star book. I really would have enjoyed reading about Yellowfang growing up and having to deal with her evil son but the authors thought it was a good idea to give her a power.
This power makes her feel the pain of other cats and that just kind of came out of nowhere and makes me think that the authors were just spit balling ideas and couldn’t come up with anything and so just settled on something.
Honestly, I think the book would have been a four or five star without the power but with it, I have to give this book a three. That power just really doesn’t fit in my opinion and takes away from the story.
There was also a lot going on and that would have been fine had there been more character building.
Also, Raggedstar was supposed to be this decent leader that they all liked, at least according to the first series but I saw no evidence of that here. He just let his son basically do whatever he wanted.
I love the way the hardback cover looks, they got her perfect and the writing was good, not great.
There was too much action and not a lot of emotions.
Thank you for reading my review.
