Review
This book was surprisingly AWESOME!!!!!! Every time I started to read it... I didn't put it down until at least an hour later. Near the end of the book though, there was a part that kinda scared me. Not like really scary though. And another part was freakishly AWESOME!!!!!!! I was wondering about how they got the courage to do such a thing!!!!!

Review
This book had a lot of information that clicked right into the Warriors series. I can't wait to read the next book in the series: Starlight. To me, the caticters ( characters ) have been through A LOT. I mean, losing your home because of twolegs ( people )???? Seriously!!! And that happens in the middle of leafbare ( Winter ) when they have almost NO FOOD to use as energy to help them travel on the journey to find they're new home!!!
