great start to a great series! this book starts off long after the darkest hour. It focuses mainly on brambleclaw (bramblepaw in the first series) and leafpaw, Firestar's daughter who is destined to become a medicine cat. It starts out when Bluestar comes to Brambleclaw in a dream and tells him the forest is in danger....again!! Him and three other cats, Tawnypelt (his sister) feathertail (graystripe's daughter) and Crowpaw (an annoying windclan apprentice)were chosen for the journey, but really six cats come, Stormfur who is feathertail's brother comes because of their strong bond with each other. Squrrielpaw (firestar's other daughter)come along on her own free will. Together the six cats journey past the highstones to seek midnight. Who is not what u think it is.
These books are probably the best ever! Its interesting how to main character is the villians son. but just one thing, Crowpaw was so mean to squirrelpaw! i thought they would kill each other, lol. Will these are great books so read them!! Now

Even Better than the First Series May 14 2005
By Litwolf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was really really great! Any cat or fiction reader should love this book!

Summary: There has been peace among the Clans for many moons since BloodClan was driven from the forest. But a new prophecy has been made known to the cats. A great danger is coming to befall the forest and StarClan has chosen the warriors that will save the forest.

Brambleclaw, Tigerstar's son in ThunderClan, has recieved a dream where Bluestar gives him the message to meet three other cats and hear what midnight has to say. He travels to FourTrees and meets the others: Tawnypelt, his sister who now lives in ShadowClan; Feathertail, Graystripe's daughter in RiverClan; and Crowpaw, an young apprentice from WindClan.

At first, they are reluctant and unsure but, after reciving more signs from StarClan, they decide to head to the sun-drown place. But they dont go alone, they are accompanied by Squirrelpaw, Firestar's daughter, and Stormfur, Feathertail's brother. Together the six cats journey to the sun-drown place, hoping midnight will give them a clue to save the forest.

But there is trouble in the forest. Leafpaw, Firestar's other daughter who is studying as a medicine cat, has gotten messages from StarClan as well. Fire, tiger, and trouble. Could this refer to Firestar's daughter Squirrelpaw and Tigerstar's son Brambleclaw? And the Twolegs are closing in with their monsters. What do they plan to do?

This series is so great! I think its even better than the first. Firestar was cool and all but the idea of a cat from each clan working together was more appealing than just one cat who whined too much. No offense to Firestar.

Cant wait for the next book. I heard this might only be a trilogy but I hope that's wrong. Its a quick read but its worth it!

As good as the first series? Yes - however.... June 3 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Yes, it was as good as the first series. First, there were characters we cared about - Leafpaw, Squirrelpaw, Brambleclaw, Tawnypelt, Crowpaw, Cinderpelt, Firestar, Graystripe, Sandstorm, Ravenpaw, etc. And an adventure. And, of course, Erin Hunter's simple yet descriptive writing style. And who could forget prophetic dreams? Ah, yes. These reasons are what made the original Warriors series good.


I have now realized just how much the first series depended on the tension of expecting a battle to happen anywhere, at any time. This suspense is a large part of what made me a Warriors fan. Midnight, while written well and with characters we care about, lacks this suspense. This is actually strange, since the plot is moving faster in Midnight than in Into the Wild. There was suspense and tension near the end, though, which was definitely something good.

I also realized just how much the original series depended on subplots. In Midnight, there are virtually no subplots. At least, none that I remember. The subplots in the original series were interesting, and a reason they were so suspenseful. I guess this is a factor contributing to the lack of suspense in Midnight.

When I say lack of suspense, I do not mean lack of interest. I have read worse books before. Midnight is an interesting book, but with a lack of battles, it can be viewed as boring.

There was one way in which Midnight surpassed the original series, however. Characterization. This is a very important thing in a story. In Warriors, the main characters had some sort of personality, and sometimes it was strong, but most of the time, the cats weren't really that different from one another. In Midnight, each cat has their distinct personality, and it is communicated in a much better way to the original series.

Not to compare it further to Warriors, Midnight is a pretty good book. Its lack of action in the middle and beginning could make a boring read, but the ending was superb. The writing was smooth and descriptive. The characterization was above average, if not great.

Midnight is a book worthy of bookshelves and libraries everywhere.

I just love the series... Nov. 24 2005
By Cats - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
You justcan't beat it! It is the only book series that I have become addicted to. I find myself thinking about the book and this seried throughtout the day wondering "I wonder if my kitten Spice would make a good clan cat?" or "Will the cats make it back in time?" It's an awsome book. Recomened to any 11 year ols that are completely in love with cats =).

An introduction to much potential June 9 2005
By Ravenpaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book, in my opinion, is not the best in the entire Warriors world. Before it was released, I heard much debate over whether it would be new clans and characters or old ones. Upon opening the book, I was quite surprised by who Erin Hunter picked as a main character. Brambleclaw, or Bramblepaw then, was my favorite character in books five and six, but I don't think he's such a great main character. Also, an interesting new thing in this book is that it switches perspectives for longish periods of time.

The book starts out with a wonderful prologue, and the first half is almost the best section in the series. The rest, though, doesn't move along to fast. The starting has the action and suspense that draws readers into the Series, but the further parts just are one thing after another. There's one outer plot. Nothing else. And it's mostly the same. The last few chapters, though bring back the suspense we saw in the first part. Unfortunately, it leaves right in the middle of a suspenseful, surprising ending. One of the nice things about it, though, is that in the ending, I had no idea what was coming. There are hints throughout the book, but the ending gives it more substance.

The characters in this book are very well-developed, though that may come from having fewer characters you meet on a regular basis. Each has its on strong personality, its own history and its own abilities.

I found this a great book, though some of the books in the first series outrank it. But if you've read the first series, this is a must-have continuation of the much-loved books.

Very Good Book May 12 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Any Warriors fans will be hooked on Midnight-- I know I was! It is different from the first series, mainly because its from Brambleclaw's point of view now, as well as Leafpaw's (Firestar's daughter) at some points. I missed hearing Firestar's thoughts, but it was also exciting to hear from another cat for a change. Several moons have passed, so there are some other changes that come as a surprise... the end of a book is a huge shock; it hints at something coming that will completely change the series. THe new characters are great and it's just as adventurous as the previous books, but the new phrophecy will give you something different to think about. If you haven't read the rest of the series, do so before reading this book, as you'll be confused, but I highly recomend fans of adventure and animals to get into it! It's not superb writing, but the plot is extremely well- developed, original, and gripping, and the characters are super! You get to know everyone and every aspect of Erin Hunter's world.
