    I just got this book and finished it. Like if you love the summary plz. I worked really hard on this. Here is a summary of it: Fireheart has been made deputy, and Sandstorm is in love with him. But, at the last Gathering, Tigerclaw, the traitor of Thunderclan, has been made leader of Shadowclan! This was the last thing Fireheart wanted, especially after the fire that overtook them. Because Bluestar had breathed smoke, Fireheart had to go in her place. Once he tells Bluestar what happened at the Gathering, Bluestar gets really mad. Over the next period of moons, Bluestar believes everyone have become traitors as well, even Fireheart. The clan is falling apart. The bad thing is, a darkness is laying in the woods waiting for the perfect chance to strike. Food goes missing. Bluestar loses her mind. The hunters have become the hunted, and there's almost nothing they can do to stop it. 𝘍𝘪𝘳𝘦 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘴𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘤𝘭𝘢𝘯...

                      Embark on a magnificent journey with Rusty, later known as Firepaw, as he stumbles across forest cats and becomes one. Later, he might be the bravest of them all. Sometimes sad, sometimes funny, and always amazing... this is my favorite series, tied with the Harry Potter series.
