Summary (from Goodreads):

The return of a long lost Clan . . .

Many moons ago, five warrior Clans shared the forest in peace. But as Twolegs encroached on the cats’ territories, the warriors of SkyClan were forced to abandon their home and try to forge a new life far away. Eventually, the Clan disbanded–forgotten by all until Firestar was sent on a quest to reunite its descendants and return SkyClan to its former glory.

Now, with Leafstar in place as leader, SkyClan is thriving. Leafstar is desperate to believe that her Clan will survive where the ancient SkyClan cats failed. But threats continue to plague the Clan, and as dissent grows from within, Leafstar must face the one question she dreads: Is SkyClan meant to survive?

My Review:

This book is the third super edition to be released in this series. It’s not part of the main series, or any series, but it takes place after the first super edition, Firestar’s Quest. 

SkyClan is now on their own after all Firestar has taught them. We follow Leafstar as she leads a brand new Clan from scratch solving problems, leading them to battle, and making the right decisions.

Like the other Warriors novels, this book is all about the cats loving in the wild and trying to survive and defend their territory. Being a new Clan, Leafstar worries about which warriors take the Clan seriously and whether she’s a good leader or not.

The plot isn’t very deep. The main idea is for the Clan to learn to live and care for one another.

The characters are all wonderfully developed. Leafstar really grows throughout the novel as she learns to take care of herself and her Clan. 

This is a long series, but I think it’s a great beginner series for young kids getting into reading. 

Warriors: SkyClan’s Destiny by Erin Hunter gets 5 out of 5 stars.

Favorite Quote:

“Cats are supposed to be able to see in the dark, and I for one don’t want to be a blind leader.” –Erin Hunter, Warriors: SkyClan’s Destiny

July Camp: Day Seven

Still Behind…

 

Well, that’s a lie. I’m not behind on Camp NaNo. Today we’re supposed to be at 11,296 or something random like that. I’m past that number. But when it comes to my goal, I should have been at 17,500. I got to 15,110 words. I wrote 5,044 words today. That’s pretty good, if I do say so myself.

I’m exactly one day behind. Which means tomorrow I’m going to be two days behind. In order to catch up I have to write about 5,000 words tomorrow. I don’t think that will be too much of a problem because I write for an hour every morning. I have to babysit until one, but after that the rest of the day is mine. I’m hoping to get another 5k in.

Today is Sunday which means I had to work a little bit on my FanFiction today. I didn’t feel like it, but I did work on it for an hour. It doesn’t look like I did too much…I typed up the stats that goes before the prologue. It’s six pages long, it took a while. If you read Warriors by Erin Hunter, then you’ll understand that the stats are a list of the clans and characters and such.

Anyway, that’s all I have to say for today. I got a lot done and now I am going to go hang out in my bedroom before Kris gets home (we share a room).

This was a boring post. Thank you for allowing me to waste these past five minutes of your life that you will never get back. 😀
