Book Description

Jan. 8 2004 Warriors (Erin Hunter) (Book 4)
Fire alone can save our clan...

Fireheart's traitorous enemy Tigerclaw has been vanquished and exiled from ThunderClan -- but Fireheart can't shake the feeling that he's lurking out there in the forest, waiting for the chance to strike.

That's not the only problem facing the young ThunderClan deputy in these blazing summer months, as he struggles to handle ominous omens, adisrespectful apprentice with a shocking secret, and a devastated Clan leader who is a shell of her former self.

Meanwhile the forest gets hotter and hotter . . . and everyone braces for the coming storm. . . .

Product Description

From Booklist

Gr. 6-9. The cat Fireheart and his fellow ThunderClan members are back in the fourth installment of the Warriors series. In this episode, Fireheart has been deputized to replace the ousted rogue cat Tigerclaw, but his new job is made harder by the lingering apathy of the clan's leader. Fireheart must overcome doubts about his ability, struggles with his apprentice, a deadly fire that threatens to finish off the clan, a potential new love, and an enemy that returns from his past. Hunter once again tells a good, suspenseful adventure story that urges readers onward, and teens may find their own journey toward adulthood echoed in the protagonist's struggles and self-doubts. Although background from earlier books may be useful, this can be read on its own; a handy list of characters at the beginning of the book will help readers keep track of Hunter's large cast.

“A good, suspenseful adventure story that urges readers onward.” (ALA Booklist)

“Certain to please any young reader who has ever wondered what dreams of grandeur may haunt the family cat.” (Publishers Weekly)

“[A] fast-moving series. The story is suspenseful; the feline characters are engaging and endowed with authentic cat mannerisms and behaviors.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

5.0 out of 5 stars Erin Hunter does it again! Feb. 18 2004
By A Customer
Rising Storm by Erin Hunter is a terrific follow-up to her previous books. In this book, Fireheart,the Thunderclan deputy and his clan members are facing more threats than ever now that Tigerclaw, the former Thunderclan deputy has been exiled and the clan leader has been very edgy after Fireheart revealed Tigerclaw's treachery. Even worse, Fireheart has to face his apprentice's disobedience, a cat who may love him, and Spottedleaf, the former medicine cat's words: "Fire will save the Clan." But it will it? It didn't seem to, now that fire has burned the Thunderclan camp and killed many cats, and the clan leader is even more irritable. How will Fireheart help his clan while his leader recovers? And most of all, how will he prevent Tigerclaw from striking again, this time while the clan is weak?

5.0 out of 5 stars Can fire save the Thunderclan or destroy it? March 28 2004
After Thunderclan's former deputy, Tigerclaw's banishment after he ambushed Bluestar with several rogue cats, outcasts of the Shadowclan, Fireheart is worried. Without the support of his best friend, Graystripe, after he had joined with the Riverclan to be with his kits, Fireheart doesn't know who to turn to. Bluestar is out of her wits, raving about how she couldn't trust Starclan and the warriors' ancestors anymore, which leaves Fireheart to pull the broken clan together. Complications occur when Cloudpaw mysteriously disappears. Along with his new female friend, Sandstorm (is it love?), Fireheart sets off to find his apprentice and stumbles upon Ravenpaw again. It turns out that the twolegs have taken his sister's kit, but dogs are gaurding the house. Eventually, the three cats rescue Cloudpaw, only to be chased down by dogs. Luckily, the escape and return to the camp. Then, a peculiar scent wafts into the air. Fire spreads into the woods, quicker than lightning. The Thunderclan flees blindly into the Riverclan territory for sanctuary, but not without losing two elders and their beloved medicine cat, Yellowfang. After that, Bluestar is totally devastated and says that Starclan betrayed the Thunderclan. Now, for the first time, she refuses to go to the Gathering, leaving Fireheart to take charge. They arrive at the fourtrees, where the clans meet, only to find a bitter surprise. Tigerclaw is now Tigerstar and the leader of the Shadowclan cats. You know what that means! Readers will be caught up in the riveting suspense of this book, refusing to let go until the very last page (there is a cliffhanger).

The 3rd and 4th installments of the Warriors Series have basically been mostly about clan life and certain adventures:

In the third book, Fireheart's suspicions are getting stronger, and Graystripe's kits have arrived (along with a unhappy gift). But Tigerclaw's treachery only happens at the end.

In the fourth book, Fireheart is deputy of Thunderclan, and he struggles with new responsibilities, not mention his apprentice still has a heart in both worlds, until the end. Once again, it is mainly his little adventures about the Gatherings, wariness of Tigerclaw, and worries about Cloudkit. Nothing much happens, until, like the third book, there is big news about Tigerclaw right at the last page where he becomes leader of Shadowclan, the most horrific place for him.

(although it's the best position from his point of view, and clearly the Shadowclan cats are betrayed with their eyes and blind in their hearts!)
So, once again, we are left to puzzle until the releasing of the fifth book, a Dangerous Path, where I'm sure there will even more little worries and odd dreams among Fireheart's mind, and what his words are at the gatherings between him, Tigerclaw and Bluestar, who must certainly have troubles with her now. Not to mention, the Shadowclan will be back in evil paws once more, and there will be plenty of raids and attacks on Thunderclan.

On the bright side, I'm eager to find out what'll happen between Sandstorm and Fireheart! :) I hope they will grow happy together and Sandstorm will have kits to bring more honor into the clan! And Cloudkit will have half-brothers and sisters, not to mention him probably becoming a warrior.

Overall, this book was good, even though there aren't much drastic things happening, and I hope to see what other secrets come up!

4.0 out of 5 stars Warriors: Book Four Rising Storm Jan. 10 2004
By A Customer
I have now read all the books that have come out in this series so far, and I have to say "Fire and Ice" is my favorite. In the fourth book, Fireheart is now the clan deputy, and his apprentice, Cloudpaw, has seriously been breaking the warrior code. Also, Bluestar, the clan leader, is still very upset about Tigerclaw. So upset, she doesn't care about her clan. Of course, Tigerclaw does return, first striking a Thunderclan patrol with his rogue cats, killing a warrior, and again towards the end in a position of power. Graystripe, Fireheart's friend, has a small part in this book and meets Firheart at the side of the river. Ravenpaw also comes in, helping Fireheart and Sandstorm escape from Twoleg dogs and find a lost apprentice. Fireheart is getting used to his new position, but then a fire starts and the coming rain isn't enough to stop the fire or save a few clan members, who were trapped in the camp. This makes Bluestar even angrier with Starclan, and she refuses to go to the Gathering. Fireheart must go in her place, and he's in for a surprise when he's sees the new leader of another Clan. I can't wait for book five!
