i love warriors they are amazing books. i tried to read a seekers but it just was not the same. i read out of order but today im going to start at the begining and read all the books in order. meow. at the bottom of page 141 erin hunter made a mistake and wrote GREWPAW instead of GRAYPAW and its so funny

I've been reading these books since I was six, and eight years later I still am. I am proud to be reading such amazing writing, even if it is far below my reading level. Erin Hunter(s) is EXTREMELY gifted, and should be writing for a long time yet in my opinion.

I enjoyed all of the Warriors books their is action,romance,mystery,and
adventure. These books will make you love reading. I recommend them.

Firestar seems a bit goody-goody to me but BLUESTAR IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! =^.^=

I <3 the warriors series!!!!! But I HATE STUPID TIGERCLAW, BROKENSTAR, HAWKFROST AND SCOURGE!!! They're SO SO EVIL and it's completely their faults that the forest is full of terror and deaths.

My warrior name is Heathernose of ThunderClan.

This book was TOTALLY AMAZING!! I give it 5 stars!!

This book is so Boss....One of my favourite names is fireheart

Fireheart stared back without blinking. He was a warrior now. He had made an enemy of the Clan's deputy, but Tigerclaw had made an enemy of him. Fireheart was not the same naïve young cat who had joined the Clan all those moons ago. He was bigger, stronger, faster, and wiser. If he was destined to oppose Tigerclaw, then so be it. Fireheart was ready for the challenge. -Fireheart's thoughts after his and Graystripe's naming ceremonies, pg 272

Rusty blinked. He stared--excited, uncertain--up past the ferns that encircled him, through the canopy of leaves, to the stars that glittered in the clear sky. The scent of the Clan cats still hung heavy in the evening air. And as Rusty turned and headed for home, he felt a strange sensation inside him, tugging him back into the depths of the forest. His fur prickled deliciously in the light wind, and the rustling leaves seemed to whisper his name into the shadows. ~Rusty's thoughts, pages 23-24

Firepaw felt something stir within him, a fire that burned in his belly and rang in his ears. He suddenly felt that everything he had done for the Clan so far--all the prey he had stalked, all the enemy warriors he had fought--had been for the sake of this single moment. ~Firepaw's thoughts during his warrior naming ceremony, pages 269-270

"If you wish to train with us, we will have to take you into our Clan. You must either live with us and respect our ways, or return to your Twolegplace and never come back. You cannot live with a paw in each world." ~Lionheart to Rusty, page 22.

"You have spirit, kittypet. Now, I'm tired and my leg hurts. I need sleep and something to put on this wound. Go and find that pretty little medicine cat of yours and ask her for some herbs. And while you're at it, I wouldn't mind a few poppy seeds to chew on. The pain is killing me!"

"Keep your rear down, Ravenpaw, you look like a duck!"- Tigerclaw, page 66

Call out if you need a hand. If she looks like she's going to have you, I'll sneak up behind her and whack her on the head with a stiff rabbit!

Those kits were weak. They would have been no use to ShadowClan. If I hadn't killed them, some other warrior would have."
— Brokenstar, page 261

as long as any cat can remember there has been four clans in the forest. A house cat named Rusty travels to discover them for himself but he does much more than exploring the forest.

Into the Wild follows the adventures of a house cat named Rusty. One day, he is invited to join ThunderClan, one of the four Clans of wild cats living in the nearby forest. Rusty agrees, is taken into the Clan, and receives the new name Firepaw. Firepaw becomes friends with fellow apprentice Graypaw, but also encounters hostility due to his outside origin. The real reason, however, that Firepaw was asked to join the Clan, is due to the fact that there is a prophecy that states that "Fire alone can save our Clan". Firepaw encounters various adventures in his training to become a warrior, and receives his warrior name, Fireheart at the end of the novel.

INTO THE WILD is the story of a domestic cat, a kittypet named Rusty, who joins a community of feral cats known as ThunderClan. ThunderClan is one of several feral communities occupying adjoining territories; Rusty is drafted to train as a warrior to help protect the traditional borders of ThunderClan territory as other clans threaten to overrun them. This was an engrossing read, with believable characters and situations. My original fears that it would fall into cutesy-poo language -- talking cats, after all! -- and situations were unfounded. In fact I admire the author''s ability to create immediately understandable terms used by the cats -- sunhigh for noon, for example. INTO THE WILD is the first in the author''s Warriors series, and is followed by FIRE AND ICE, FOREST OF SECRETS, RISING STORM, A DANGEROUS PATH, and THE DARKEST HOUR. The series has also led to a sister series, Warriors: The New Prophecy, with three books to date: MIDNIGHT, MOONRISE, and DAWN.
