Grade 5 Up-As this third book in this series begins, Fireheart, former house pet turned warrior cat, continues to be torn between his allegiance to his Thunderclan and his suspicions that Tigerclaw is planning to take over as its leader. When Fireheart gets proof of his deceit and presents his findings to the clan's wise and compassionate leader, she refuses to believe him. Tensions are already running high between the clans because the cats are getting sick from fish from the polluted rivers, flooding is widespread, and they must invade each other's territory for food. The tragic death of Graystripe's mate as she's giving birth and his betrayal of the clan by loving a cat from an enemy clan bring the simmering tensions to a boil as both groups claim rights to the kits. Other secrets come to light as Tigerclaw, exiled in disgrace, vows revenge and Fireheart becomes the new deputy. This exciting book is not for the faint of heart as it is often violent. It is reminiscent of Greek drama, with its huge cast of characters (a chart of allegiances is included), intrigues, divided loyalties, star-crossed lovers, and parents murdering their offspring. Fans of the series will lap it up while impatiently awaiting the next entry.

Gr. 6-9. Following Fire and Ice [BKL Ag 03], this third book in the Warriors series finds the cat Firepaw still suspicious of Tigerclaw, the deputy to the leader of ThunderClan. For his part, Tigerclaw continues to have it in for Firepaw, and as Firepaw investigates the death of ThunderClan warrior Redtail, a number of secrets are revealed--to the dismay of many clan members. Hunter adds to the mix a devastating flood, shifting alliances between clans, treachery within and without ThunderClan, and attempted murder--a combination that makes for another dynamic episode sure to please series fans.

Forest of Secrets is a great book. There is a lot mystery to it and is very satisfying to read. This book combines all the good things a nice fiction book needs. It has the combined power of a an ancient society in troubl and the modern human world that is causing it. All the previous books have suprised me, but I couldn't believe the actions one animal will take so justice can be done.
The story starts as Oakheart, a Riverclan cat, gives two Thunder clan cats to Graypool, a young queen. Graypool questions Oakheart, but decides to keep the kits as her own have just died. Then story goes into the present where The Gathering is just starting(The Gathering is when all four clans, Shadow clan, Wind clan, River clan, and Thunder clan, come in a sacred truce). The river has been frozen for quite some time, and everybody is starting to starve.The clans discuss about the famine and what to do and soon depart. Fireheart, a kittypet(housecat) warrior, finds his friend Graystripe with Silverstream, a young Riverclan she-cat. Fireheart had gotten used to the idea that they both love each other, even though he knows it is forbidden. However, Tigerclaw, Thunderclan's deputy, is suspicious. As the story progresses, Fireheart and Graystripe help Riverclan in their greatest time of need.They also investigate the death of Redtail, Thunderclan's previous deputy. They have a shrewd idea that Tigerclaw killed Redtail in the battle of Sunningrocks, based on the stories of Ravenpaw, their old friend who lives with Barley, a loner, in a very old farm, and the tales of how Oakheart died from Riverclan's Mistyfoot, Stonefur, and Graypool. They risk their leaders fury in order to accmplish this impossible mission.Read more ›
In this book, Graystripe, Fireheart's friend, continues to see a very controversial cat, there's a new medicine cat apprentice, and the story behind Bluestar, the ThunderClan leader, and her kits is not what it seems... This book in the series has a bit of a darker tone, and even the dreams Fireheart has with a StarClan cat are a bit less happy.
I'm not one to cry because of movies or books, but a part in this book left me with the beginnings of a lump in my throat. There are plenty of fast-paced battles, which I thoroughly enjoy. Fireheart gets a new responsibility, and Tigerclaw is as mean as ever.
Read this excellent book for an exciting experience!
