Book Review: Thunder Rising (Warriors: Dawn of the Clans, 2) by Erin Hunter | Book Blogger | Fantasy | Middle Grade |

Thunder Rising by Erin Hunter takes place not too long after the ending of the first book in this prequel series. In the Warriors world, there are four groups of cats split into Clans. At the time of this book, every cat is trying to find their place in this new territory.

Split into two groups, cats go back and forth between one group and the other or simply living along or going to live with Twolegs (humans).

Thunder, Clear Sky’s son, is torn between living in his father’s territory or remaining with Gray Wing, the uncle who raised him. Tensions rise as Thunder (among other cats) find their place and attempt to figure out there place in this new area.

There was plenty of action in this book, including a forest fire. However, more family drama unfolded and Gray Wing’s confidence began to slip away all the while Clear Sky grew strong, strengthening his own group of cats.

This book ended on a cliffhanger, so I’ll reading book three soon enough.

Writing Style


Thunder Rising (Warriors: Dawn of the Clans, 2) by Erin Hunter felt as though it was a lot of build-up for book three. A lot happened – there was character development and the plot moved along smoothly and I’m eager to see what will happen next.
