Everyone lives by some sort of code. Moral codes are what hold people together, through dark times and difficult situations. Ethic, respect, religion, and anything else can be considered the backbone for many. What if that stabilizing solid concept was to be removed? Three cats face the potential risks of what it means to be thrust into a world where chaos is slowly taking over. Having faith is really more easily said than done. The authors did a good job here in blending confusion and disbelief with reality and uncertainty.

Love it. You should read it because it's about cats. I like cats. In this book, the cats have territories, and they try to stop shadow clan from disbelieving in the warrior code.

Am I the only one that thinks Lionblaze is a little too overpowered? Or do children these days just like characters that never lose? Oh well.

Happyyoyo, **WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD** Squirrelflight ISN'T their mother. It's pretty abvious that she isn't, though, Squirrelflight is ONLY they're foster mother, while Brambleclaw WAS they're foster father, but no, NOT actually they're parents. Major plot twist, I KNOW.

I realize nobody likes spoilers, but if you're a Warriors fan and you don't know Squirrelflight isn't Jayfeather's, Hollyleaf's, and Lionblaze's mother, then where have you been???

WARNING: Spoiler!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Leafpool is their mother, & Crowfeather is their father. I know, plot twist. And Hollyleaf goes pretty much insane because of it.

Meginka123: Hollyleaf murdered Ashfur (she didnt kill him but he tried to kill hollyleaf but fell int the river and drowned)FAIL!!!!!!!

Meginka123 Jul 15, 2012

Tawnypelt has brought her kits Tigerpaw, Dawnpaw and Flamepaw to ThunderClan, for ShadowClan has stopped believing in StarClan. Jaypaw, Hollyleaf and Lionblaze plan with the kits to make a sign to convince ShadowClan to believe again. Later, Jaypaw meets a bunch of ancient cats. I think he fell in love with one named Half Moon. Jaypaw also becomes Jayfeather. Later, Ashfur corners Squirrelflight and the kits on a cliff. He wants to kill them, for revenge on Squirrelflight. Squirrelflight then reveals they are not her kits. Ashfur then plans to tell the secret at the Gathering, but before he could, he was mysteriously murdered by ________ (fill in the blank if you think you know who did it).

Sol has convinced ShadowClan to turn their backs on StarClan. Unhappy, Tawnypelt takes her three kits, Tigerpaw, Dawnpaw and Flamepaw to ThunderClan. Secretly, Jaypaw, Hollyleaf and Lionblaze plan with the kits to make a sign that convinces ShadowClan to believe in StarClan again. Later, in a storm, Ashfur traps Squirrelflight and the three kits atop a cliff, intending to kill them as revenge for Squirrelflight choosing Brambleclaw over him. To save them, Squirreflight reveals that they are not actually her kits. Ashfur promises to use this new knowledge to make their lives miserable, and lets them live. They try in vain to convince Ashfur not to, and hours before Ashfur was to reveal the secret at a Gathering, he is found mysteriously murdered.

".. it was several moments before Firestar could make himself heard again. "We mustn't act too quickly.... there is no evidence at all that he was killed by another Clan." Frozen silence filled the clearing. When Brackenfur broke it, his voice was shaking. " Are you saying one of us killed Ashfur?" ..."Do any of you know a reason why anyone in Thunder Clan might want Ashfur dead?" Firestar asked ... Now, for their own sakes and the sakes of their Clan, they must all conspire to keep the truth hidden forever." Power of Three, Warriors, Long Shadows.
