      This book is not as good as the rest in the series. It was boring and the plot was slow. The ending was pretty good though. It's just nothing super interesting happens until the very end. I hope the next book is better. It probably is.

        Rising storm is great. It tells of how Fireheart plays his role as deputy in the ThunderClan even as Bluestar gives up hope in StarClan- and even in her own clan.

              A thrilling tale...packed with action, very enthralling, and a great book! Definitely recommended and impossible to put down. Fireheart's legacy continues in this epic book, as the Clans battle for survival. Tigerclaw, the evil cat who manipulated and tricked his former Clan, is on the loose. Fireheart's leader has been badly impacted by an attack. And a great force threatens to quench them all...unless they can face their futures. Meanwhile, other problems come in from outside the Clans, and might destroy everything they have built for themselves. As his loved ones and friends give in to the coming storm, Fireheart is their only hope--he must help them survive...or die trying. Can he hold the Clan together? Or will it crumble? Read this book to find out, and join the warrior cats on their quest!

                This is so great! Tigerclaw now has been exiled... I hope Bluestar will recover soon. Fireheart must train Cloudpaw because he's Cloudpaw's mentor... And Graystripe has left ThunderClan to be with his kits. :( Anyways, great book.

                    This is one of the best books in the Warriors series. There was a fire, and three cats die (I'm not gonna tell you who) but Fireheart does not give up and he works hard to rebuild ThunderClan. Apart from the other three cats, another cat dies from a battle near the Thunderpath with Tigerclaw and his rouges.

                      This book is the fourth book in the first Warrior story arc.The basic plot is that Bluestar is acting differently and loses trust in all her warriors but the deputy Fireheart due to Tigerclaw,her former deputy and most respected and revered cat in Thunderclan is revealed to have a treacherous and cunning nature,and is exiled from Thunderclan. Meanwhile, Fireheart has deal with the tough responsibilities of being deputy and training a disobedient apprentice.Can Fireheart deal with his responsibilities and also protect his clan from Tigerclaw,who is waiting to get his revenge on Thunderclan and Fireheart.I would give this book 5 stars because of the action,suspense ,and the character of Tigerclaw. Tigerclaw is so cunning, vicious,and powerhungry that it makes him a amazing antagonist,I would definitely recommend
