Warriors: A Vision of Shadows #5: River of Fire
By Erin Hunter
Deep in the forest, a gang of strange mysterious feral cats dwells. In ENGLAND. That fact was established in the first book. After 28 books a lot of stuff has happened. Most importantly, Fierestar, the main character in the first arc thingy, has DIED. Now the books focus on three new cats: Violetshine, Twigpaw, and Alderheart. Anyway, this is book 5. So Shadowclan, one of the main groups of cats, has disbanded due to not having enough cats and OTHER REASONS. Now there are only three clans because RiverClan, another group, is closing its borders due to rebuilding. And Alderheart is very apoplectic. Google it. He thinks StarClan does not want that and they don't. Meanwhile, Twigpaw decided to leave SkyClan in the last book and recently went to ThunderClan, which is Alderheart's clan. And her sister Violetshine is doing stuff in SkyClan with her friend Tree. So one day Twigpaw goes to the Moonpool, which is where all the medicine cats, who are sort of like Shamans, go to, and sees that a camp has burned down! DISASTER IS COMING. Oh no. Every clan needs to work together, but how is that possible with just three clans? The book was a very enjoyable read, and it was really interesting, but the plot was strange. I could not keep track of IT. But overall, nice book.
Target Practice (Cleopatra in Space #1)
By Mike Maihack
So, I like history. And I really like ancient history. So to find a graphic novel series about Cleopatra was MINDBLOWING!. Let me first warn you, the book is not exactly accurate. This Cleopatra does NOT like school, and that gets her into a lot of trouble. I have read the first book of this series and needless to say, I plan to read them ALL! Cleopatra VII gets transported to an Egyptian-styled future through a mysterious glowing tablet. See. She should have been studying! Questions? What is the mysterious glowing tablet? Where did it come from? Cleopatra VII lands learns she is on Planet Mayet in the Ailuros System. She finds herself going back to school on this foreign planet in hopes to find her way back home. More questions? How can her new friends, Akila and Brian, help her find out how she got to Planet Mayet? Is the destiny of 15-year-old Cleo to battle and protect the Planet Mayet from Xaius Octavian and his Xerx army? I ope you read the first book in this series, too, so you can find out!
The Wolf Wilder
By Katherine Rundell
THE WOLF WILDER is an exciting and mysterious account of how friends can help you overcome CHALLENGES. It tells the story of 12-year-old Feo, who lives in the 1910s in snowy Russia. She lives in the woods with her mother Marina, and they rewild pet WOLVES. Which is a very nice occupation. The book begins with some soldiers barging into the hut and demanding 3 trillion dollars because one of their wilded wolves killed an elk. They confiscate Feo's golden necklace and issue a stern warning: If they ever find out that they have been wilding wolves again, there will be SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES. But they do it anyway, because why not? Then they get caught and Marina is sent to jail. So, Feo and her wolf friends, along with a human named Ilya, set out to rescue her mother and fight General Rakov, the cruel commander of the Russian Army who is EVIL. This book was very funny, especially about wolves eating toes. And it had a lot of action in it too! It also teaches about the importance of bravery and WOLVES. I recommend it to people who like fast-paced stories with animals in them.
