Publisher's Summary

A thrilling new adventure begins in Erin Hunter’s #1 bestselling best-selling Warriors series!

They have always lived by the code—but only change can keep the peace.

A new age is dawning on the warrior Clans. Now a new generation of warriors rises—one wrestling with the legacy of his great ancestor Firestar, one seeking to protect her troubled Clan, and one yearning to prove herself as a medicine cat—as leaders from all five Clans agree that the Warrior Code must be reformed.

But when tragedy strikes RiverClan, old fears will threaten the new peace…unless these three young cats can calm the coming storm.

This seventh epic Warriors series is full of action, intrigue, and adventure. This first book is the perfect introduction for new listeners, while long-time fans will discover what unfolds after the events of The Broken Code.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Eversince I finished the body snatchers series

I have been waiting for something out of the dark forest, this was a great book. although it would be nice to know a few things. I doubt I ever will find out. what was she doing in those bushes how did she end up with that hurt paw. what is river clan going to do now. when I read the reviews I thought something really drastic was going to have thankfully it wasn't as bad as what I assumed.

Good direction but the protagonists are passive

First of all, I like this new writing style. The characters are just more intelligent and have more context awareness in general. MachLeod Andrews's voice is great as always.

However... What I didn't like is just how passive the two protagonists are. I had alway hated multiple povs, in fact, the way that I read this book is to just listen to one pov at a time. Likes 3-6-9-, 2-5-8-.

Sunbeam - She is the most interesting protagonist in the entire book. There is a story here, and it's her own decision and will! It's like I actually got to read about someone's life.
Flamepaw - He 'could' be a good pov... But- despite his bitterness, he did nothing. Dear god. Why? He has every reason to be an interesting perspective but yet he isn't. At some point, he even got turned into a side character in his own chapter! Just to show what's going on in ThunderClan. And his failing assessment led to nothing! I wish he would just keep failing and leave ThunderClan. Now! That would be something I want to read.
Frostpaw - I don't have much to say. She is the worst. The most bland and boring chapter where the protagonist does almost absolutely nothing except stuck in their own head. Her entire story and RiverClan cats are laughable at most.

This book is barely worth 1 credit, but you pretty much don't have a choice since its an arc book. Book 1 too at that.
The writing is 'good'. But the protagonists are the 'worst'. Can Flamepaw get together with Sunbeam?
Oh well
I hope they write something good in book 2.

A refreshing start

phenomenal narrator
good start to a solid arc
hoping that the others follow suit!

I've been reading Warriors since I was a kid and this is my first dive back into it in a few years. Andrews absolutely does a phenomenal job bringing the book to life.

The format was different and fun, telling three separate stories at once with small tidbits or information being sprinkled throughout. I was very pleased and have high hopes for the rest of the arc!

Awesome story, great plot!

I love this book, it has a lot of action and plot in it. I can never wait to listen to another chapter! I love Sunbeam, she is my favorite cat. But Riverclan has so much sadness and trouble it’s heartbreaking. Sooo good!!!!
