    This book is awesome! It brings you into the Tribe, and the beginning of the Clans. It also expands on the cats at that time, like Gray Wing. You can also learn about all the learning, and in my opinion it’s a little more interesting because you can know what happened in the past. Anyways you can know a lot of the StarClan members! 😂😂😂 Knowing how the names of the clans was great too, learning about Moth Wing was also helpful about the background of the clans. These cats were beasiccly completely new to what the Clans do today, so you get to learn along with them. The battles kits warriors, and everything else just seem even more interesting than regular. It tells you history if SkyClan, and everything. The details, the action. That’s what makes it an amazing book. This one made me cry.

      Great book!!! I had read series 1-3, and knowing the background of the clans and why they were named windclan, shadowclan, thunderclan, and riverclan was very helpful. I had a lot of questions before I read this book. How did the clans form? What is Skyclan? A lot of them were anwsered in this book!

        I like Thunder. Jagged Peak was my favorite character - before he grew up that is (Loin'blaze will forever be my favorite character if they always grew up and become really boring)

                  This book was really good! I thought this book would really be a bad book because I HATE the mountain cats. This was actually one of the only books I cried in.

                    This is a really good book. It has a lot of action and basically makes the cats seem human, like they have consciences and real emotions and can actually plan attacks, etc. I really like the plot, because it has a lot of suspense and foreshadowing that makes the reader excited to read ahead. The thing I didn't really like about the book was that it became kind of boring towards the end, because everything was mostly the same - the descriptions of the cats, their thoughts, mostly everything! The author also left a bit of a cliffhanger at the end so readers would read the next book. I would recommend this series to grade 4-6 kids as it will be very interesting for them to read about cats. webby webby
