    This is the first Warriors book ever. Rusty has alot of curiosity, I see. and he was very brave. Going into a forest and spying on a fox! I don't like Longtail, Darkstripe, or Dustpaw. Sandpaw? well, I don't like how she taunts Firepaw, either.

      This book was the first book continuing to a series of danger, excitement, romance and more! It was hard to understand the “cat speak” at first, but you will soon figure it out. “Twolegs” which are humans, “leaf-fall” autumn.....and this story is About a pet cat, Rusty. He ventures out of his home and meets three cats who live in different clans - ShadowClan, ThunderClan, RiverClan, and WindClan. These three cats are from ThunderClan, and Rusty wants to join them. After a brief battle with one of the cats in ThunderClan, Rusty gets a new name - Firepaw, and proves himself to be a formidable apprentice. Want to know more? Read “Into the Wild”, by Erin Hunter. Enjoy!

        The Warriors Series is so good! I'm in The Broken Code Veil of Shadows now! This book is about Rusty, a kittypet. Then he meets Bluestar, Graypaw, and Lionheart. Then Rusty decided to join ThunderClan. The mysterious death of Redtail, the Clan's deputy, makes Lionheart the next deputy instead of Tigerclaw. Then Ravenpaw, Tigerclaw's apprentice, reveals to Rusty, renamed Firepaw, that Tigerclaw was the one that killed Redtail, and Redtail was the one who killed Oakheart. This is super great.

          I love this book! I am a big fan of warrior cats and I am now on The Broken Code (series 6) so I will recommend Into the wild to anyone who is looking for an exiting book to read. Remember, if you love warrior cats there are more than just books! Hope you enjoy the Warrior cats series!

            Hey guys! I've already read all books of the series (from "The prophercies begins" to "Vision of shadows"). It's the best book I read. Erin Hunter is an awesome autor, there are also series like "Bravelands" or "Survivors" which I also like. I recommend it to everyone.

              This is one of my favorite Warrior books. I like how Firepaw stood up against the Clan Cats' taunts and became an awsome warrior.

                My big sister handed me this book, and after I read it, I was so eager to read the entire series. I would definitely recommend this book to a friend.
