Darkness, air, water and sky will come together and shake the forest to its roots in Warriors: Midnight book #1 in The New Prophecy Series by Erin Hunt. The wild cats of the forest have lived in peace and harmony for many moons – but a doom that will change everything is coming. Strange messages from their warrior ancestors speak of terrifying new prophecies, danger, and a mysterious destiny. All the signs point to young warrior Brambleclaw as the cat with the fate of the forest in his paws. But why would the son of wicked cat Tigerstar be chosen to be a hero? And who are the other cats mentioned in the prophecy? All Brambleclaw knows for sure is that the strength and courage of the greatest warriors will be needed now, as the quest to save the Clans begins.
Several moons have passed since six cats set out from the forest on an urgent journey to save their clans. Now those six are traveling home again, but on their way through the mountains, they meet a tribe of wild cats who seem to have their own set of warrior ancestors . . . 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’s daughter Leafpaw watches ThunderClan’s world crumble around her, as the humans’ terrible machines destroy more and more of their home. Will the questing cats make it back in time to save the Clans, or will they be too late? Find out what happens in Warriors: Moonrise book #2 in The New Prophecy Series by Erin Hunt.
Warriors: Dawn book #3 in The New Prophecy Series by Erin Hunt. Something terrifying is happening in the world of the Clans. Amid the destruction of the forest, cats are disappearing, including ThunderClan’s beloved medicine cat apprentice, Leafpaw. The young cats who set off on a quest many moons ago have returned with a chilling message: The Clans must move to a new home, or risk extermination. But it is not easy to convince the cats to leave. Even if all four Clans agreed to travel together, the dangers waiting for them beyond their borders are impossible to predict. More importantly, even the questing cats have no idea where they’re supposed to go. What they need most of all is a plan to save their missing warriors, or risk leaving them behind forever.
Warriors: Super Edition: Skyclan’s Destiny by Erin Hunter tells the story of the return of a long lost clan. Many moons ago, five warrior Clans shared the forest in peace. But as Twolegs encroached on the cats’ territories, the warriors of SkyClan were forced to abandon their new life far away. Eventually, the Clan disbanded, forgotten by all, until Firestar was sent on a quest to reunite its descendants and return SkyClan to its former glory. Now, with Leafstar in place as leader, SkyClan is thriving. Leafstar is desperate to believe that her clan will survive where the ancient SkyClan cats failed. But threats continue to plague the Clan, and as dissent grows from within, Leafstar must face the one question she dreads: Is SkyClan meant to survive?
