Firepaw needs to choose between right or wrong, and facing danger or keeping silence. Will Firepaw be able to uncover the truth to the clan, or get lost between the dangerous paths and plots?

Personal Review

This book made me read the whole series. First, you’ll be surprised by how the author wrote the ways of the cats; the way they talk, move, hunt, fight. Even the words used for is related to cats, making everything so alive! And then, the adventures are all so amazing! Things that can happen to the wild like drought, flood, pollution, etc. You can see it clearly how those thing affect the wild life. The author ties up those disasters with the plots in a knot; and that events creates this suspense as the story starts to reveal it’s self more and more. During all this, there’s also relationship; friendship, respect, and love. Warriors, I think, is a amazing fantasy. It’s just fantastic of looking into a wild cat world with cats with loyalty and great courage, just like humans. And Into the Wild is the gateway into that world. After reading this book I became to love cats. I would really want you to read this if you didn’t read it before.
