Before there is peace, blood will spill blood...

New territory brings new troubles for the fierce cats of the warrior Clans, who are still uncovering the secrets of their new home around the lake. Dangers they have never faced before are lurking in the twilight shadows, and former allies are acting strangely hostile.

As divisions between the Clans grow deeper, Firestar's daughters face troubling decisions. One is torn between loyalty to her calling and a forbidden love, while the other struggles with her best friend's betrayal and the surprising perils of the forest. The choices they make now could affect ThunderClan for generations to come . . . and with an unexpected enemy preparing to attack, their courage and strength will be needed more than ever if the Clan is to survive.

    Amazing! A great depiction of the wide and wonderful animal world...fantastic and very enthralling. The warrior Clans are in pandemonium. A terrible enemy walks among them, waiting for the right moment to strike...and the divide between Clan and kin grows stronger every day. The cats must do something—or all will be lost. Meanwhile, four other cats struggle with problems of their own. Leafpool is a medicine cat, dedicated to healing, never allowed to take a mate or have kits...but then she meets Crowfeather, and a forbidden love ignites. Squirrelflight must decide who she wants to be...and where her loyalties lie. She is Leafpool’s sister...and again, that impossible question comes up; Clan or kin. And Brambleclaw struggles to break free of his evil father’s hold, of all the suspicion that follows him around. Can these cats rebel against their destinies...and follow their hearts? Read this book to find out!
