Blurb: Moons have passed since six cats set out on a journey to save their Clans. Now they are traveling home again, but on their way through the mountains, they meet a tribe of wild cats with a secret . . . and their own mysterious prophecy to fulfill. Stormfur can’t understand their strange fascination with him, but he knows the danger they face is real.
Meanwhile, back in the forest, Firestar and Leafpaw watch ThunderClan’s world crumbling around them. Will the questing cats make it back in time to save the Clans, or will they be too late?
Review: I had completely forgotten what happens in this book until Crowpaw went and said “Think you’re a Clan leader with nine lives to throw away?” and my heart just stopped. I didn’t want to go on.
I wasn’t as connected to the characters in this book, maybe because they deal with the Tribe cats and it was dealing with another prophecy but near the end, when Feathertail figured out that it was her, oh I had to put the book down. I didn’t want to turn the page.
The writing is alright but the journey is getting old. I know it’s only the second book but, it’s dragging, they still have to make it back to their Clans.
The new cover is….eh, I don’t know. I loved the new covers for The Prophecies Begin series but this series, it seems like something went wrong on these covers. Huge close-ups of the cats looking intense don’t give me the same warm fuzzies and I think they should have done something with the backgrounds of the classics.
The pace of the plot is alright, I just couldn’t feel anything with the Tribe until Feathertail but the anxious feelings I got with the cats in the forest helped out with my reaction to the book.
Thank you for reading my review.
