I haven't read the book yet but all I know is that MAPLESHADE'S CRAZY!!!! She is a MANIAC! No wonder her mate chose another mate. She scared Crookedstar to death! ( not really. :) ) She took his wife and two of his kits and his mother away. ( READ CROOKEDSTAR'S PROMISE ) I am not trying to make anyone upset, but she didn't deserve to have a mate or kits, and she was probably jealous because Crookedstar had a better life than her. ( Avoiding his mother abandoning him, and Goosefeather making him end up with a twisted jaw.)
Oakheart probably had a way better life than him, he had all of his mother's love and he had his own father as his mentor. Oakheart also had two kits instead of one. Also only one of Oakheart's kits died and Crookedstar lost two of his kits and ended up with Silverstream, a bratty daughter. Oh and don't get me started on Feathertail, she acts like she's so perfect and Crowfeather would love her forever. Bluestar is so much better than both of them.
Love Lionblaze ( blush) he is a really nice cat. Jayfeather, oh leave that to my other friend. Hollyleaf. Can't choose between her and Dovewing on taking the rightful place with Jayfeather and Lionblaze. Mabey Hollyleaf because she was alive first.
