The trio really matured in this book, laying the grounds for more interesting problems (like outside of common question "Should we disobey orders and take matters into our own paws, or listen?") later in the series. Lionpaw isn't so goody-goody, and not so proud. It grows steadily obvious that fighting is his strong point. And Hollypaw is a bit obsessed with wanting to be leader (and still slightly irritating with her constant worrying), but she's really maturing too. Jaypaw is sill prickly, but not so annoying, and the parts of the book from his point of view were, in my opinion, the most interesting. I really liked the character development in this book... even Breezepaw seems to be maturing somewhat, and you get real insight as to why he's so obnoxious.
Anyway, I thought that this book was great. From an increasingly interesting plot (read to find out what happens!) to characters that truly begin to come to life, Outcast was a must-read for all Warriors fans!
After the near break out of war between Windclan and Thunderclan, things appear to be returning to normal in the clan, though for our three protaganist things couldn't be anything but normal. Jaypaw still searches for answers on the ancient clan that once roamed the lake, while Hollypaw and Lionpaw strive towards becoming better warriors. And things couldn't be made easier with a newly made warrior determined to cause conflict, a mentor with a dark side, and a growing threat in the mountains that draws all three cats towards discovering their true destiney.
What I feel Outcast did was really pick up on the whole 'phrophecy' of this series, with plot details becoming more and more developed, long overdue questions finally being answered, and our three heroes finally beginning to take shape as true characters. So by far, this is the best one out of the series so far, and hopefully, the fourth will continue this momentum.
Once again, a must for all cat lovers and especially long time Warriors readers.
If you liked the other Warriors books, you'll LOVE this one!
Hope this helped,
