How did I get the book? It was a gift.
Genre: Juvenile fantasy

Summary (from Amazon):

There will be three,
Kin of you kin….
Who hold the
Power of the stars
In their paws.

A secret prophecy shapes the lives of Firestar’s grandchildren, but only one of the three knows about it. Jaypaw is captivated by the power it promises, and he believes the key to that power may lie buried in the distant past — with the ancient cats who once walked these woods and now prowl through his dreams.His search for answers leads him toward the mountains — the home of the Tribe of Rushing Water. Lionpaw and Hollypaw feel drawn to the mountains too, for different reasons.

But the mountains hide secrets as well as answers, and if the three cats find a way to get there, they may discover more than they ever expected.

My Review:

Outcast is the third book in the Warriors: Power of Three series by Erin Hunter. It continues to follow Jaypaw, Hollypaw, and Lionpaw on their journey to become warriors and do what is best for their Clan.

Even though they are apprentices, they are able to go on a long journey to help the Tribe of Rushing Water. They have helped the Clan cats before, so it only makes sense for them to return the favor.

The book was certainly interesting to see the Tribe cats again from the previous series. The journey to help the Tribe was entertaining enough as it was the first long journey the apprentices got to go on.

It’s not until they reach the mountains that they realize they may be in over their heads.

This book had plenty of adventure, but there was a lot of build-up to the journey. I felt some of that may not have been needed. Then again, there are three more books in the series after this one. Maybe some questions will be answered then.

Warriors: Outcast by Erin Hunter gets 4 out of 5 stars.

  1. I’ve seen this series in the bookstores and libraries around here for a while. Was always curious about it. Though ‘juvenile fiction’ is a really cringe-worthy genre title. Just doesn’t sound right.

      1. True. But I do wonder if I would enjoy the series as much if I picked up the series for the first time now rather than ten years ago.

    1. I started reading these books when they first came out. I was 11 and now I’m 21. I grew up with them. I do wonder how much I would enjoy it if I picked it up for the first time now, though. Then again, I love reading middle grade books, lol.

Let me know what you think!
