Book Review: Warriors: Shattered Sky (A Vision of Shadows 3) by Erin Hunter | Young Adult | Fantasy | Book Blogger | RachelPoli.com

I got a hardcover copy for Christmas.

Summary:

Only shadows can clear the sky

The warrior Clans are facing an enemy more dangerous than they have ever known. Darktail and his band of rogues have seized ShadowClan’s territory. Worse, many of ShadowClan’s young warriors and apprentices have joined the rogues, forcing Rowanstar and a few loyal warriors to take refuge in ThunderClan.

Though Darktail’s rogues are a threat to all warrior cats, the ties between the four ties have begun to fracture. RiverClan is heavily wounded, WindClan has closed its borders, and in ThunderClan, medicine cat Alderheart is more certain than ever that their only hope is to find SkyClan. They must fulfill StarClan’s prophecy–before Darktail’s vicious reign puts an end to all the Clans.

My Review:

Book Cover | RachelPoli.comAs always, I like the book cover. I like how realistic it looks and how it showcases certain important characters of that current book.

Plot | RachelPoli.comThe plot of this book needed all five Clans, including SkyClan, to ban together to get rid of Darktail and the rogues. This plot is very intense but it was great to see all the Clans working together. My only complaint – if you can call it a complaint – is that this book seemed to be the end. It would have been a great ending to A Vision of Shadows, but there are still three books left in this series. I’m lost as to what will happen next for the last three books.

Characters | RachelPoli.comAll the characters are great, as usual. I’m glad Twigpaw took matters into her own hands – it was about time one of them did something without obeying and then calling “woe is me.” All the characters had a purpose in this particular book and it was great.

Writing Style | RachelPoli.com

These books are always an easy read. Shattered Sky is on the shorter side compared to the other books in the series. It was a page-turner and definitely a fun read compared to the first two books of the series. As I said for the plot, though, I’m not sure what’s going to happen next. This book would have been a great wrap up for the series.

Overall | RachelPoli.comShattered Sky was a great read and I’m looking forward to reading the fourth book.

Warriors: The Apprentice’s Quest (A Vision Of Shadows 1) By Erin Hunter [Book Review]

Book Review: Warriors: The Apprentice's Quest (A Vision of Shadows 1) by Erin Hunter | Middle Grade | Fantasy | Book Blogger | RachelPoli.com

I got a hardcover copy as a gift for Christmas.

Summary:

For many moons, ThunderClan, ShadowClan, RiverClan, and WindClan have lived in peace in their territories around the lake. But now they must decipher a mysterious prophecy—a message that will send one young medicine cat apprentice on a quest to determine the fate of all the warrior Clans.

Full of epic adventure and thrilling intrigue, the beginning of this fifth Warriors series is the perfect introduction for readers new to the Warriors world, while for dedicated fans, it’s a long-awaited return to the era of Bramblestar’s ThunderClan, after the events of Omen of the Stars.

My Review:

Book Cover | RachelPoli.comThe covers for the series as a whole got a make-over. The covers all look gorgeous and even though these are “new” for earlier books, this is the first edition cover for A Vision of Shadows. I really like the colors and think the art style is beautiful.

First Thoughts | RachelPoli.comAfter reading Omen of the Stars, I hopped right into this series since I’m trying to catch up on the books before the next series comes out.

Plot | RachelPoli.comAlderpaw and his sister Sparkpaw are Bramblestar (the clan leader) and Squirrelflight’s kits. They’re made into apprentices at the beginning and begin their warrior training. Except, poor Alderpaw is a terrible “warrior.” His fighting skills are lacking and he has yet to catch a single piece of prey. He’s worried about what good he would be for his clan if he can’t defend it or catch food.

So, Bramblestar and the two medicine cats, Leafpool and Jayfeather, decide to make Alderpaw a medicine cat apprentice. Shortly after, he begins to have visions from StarClan and must go on a quest to help SkyClan from long ago.

I enjoyed this particular plot because it’s not every day you meet a protagonist who “can’t” do what they’re supposed to – at least, not in this series. I was certainly intrigued by his story and how he would fit into his clan throughout.

Characters | RachelPoli.comAlderpaw makes a great main character. He has a lot of anxiety and is very self-conscious which makes me feel bad for him and root for him all the more. His sister Sparkpaw is an interesting character, though she’s a bit of a know-it-all and can be a snob. I’m looking forward to seeing how their relationship plays out throughout the next few books.

Writing Style | RachelPoli.com

The Apprentice’s Quest is an easy read and definitely a page-turner at some parts. The book is just shy under 300 pages, which is the typical length. The plot and characters are interesting enough and easy to follow along with.

Overall | RachelPoli.comThis was a great beginning to a new series of Warriors books. I’m looking forward to reading book two and seeing where Alderpaw goes from here.
