Night lay upon the forest. There was no moon, but the stars of Silverpelt shed their frosty glitter over the trees. At the bottom of a rocky hollow, a pool reflected the starshine. The air was heavy with the scents of late greenleaf. (from the first line)

Darkness, air, water, and sky will come together...
The wild cats of the forest have lived in peace and harmony for many moons -- but a doom that will change everything is coming. Strange messages from their warrior ancestors speak of terrifying new prophecies, danger, and a mysterious destiny.
All the signs point to young warrior Brambleclaw as the cat with the fate of the forest in his paws. But why would the son of wicked cat Tigerstar be chosen to be a hero? And who are the other cats mentioned in the prophecy? All Brambleclaw knows for sure is that the strength and courage of the greatest warriors will be needed now, as the quest to save the Clans begins.
...and shake the forest to its roots.
About the Author:
Erin Hunter is inspired by a love of cats and a fascination with the ferocity of the natural world. As well as having a great respect for nature in all its forms, Erin enjoys creating rich mythical explanations for animal behavior, shaped by her interest in astrology and standing stones.
The fierce, wild cats of the forest are at risk when a fresh prophecy is seen, one that might spell death and disaster for their mighty cat warrior clans--Thunder, River, Shadow, and Wind. Four young, untested warriors, the offspring of Firestar, Graystripe, Sandstorm, and Tigerclaw, must combine forces, as the fate of the forest and every cat in it is in their paws. The first in a new trilogy from the popular Warriors series. The author, Erin Hunter, is actually two women, Kate Cary and Cherith Baldry, who together create the stories, but each write different titles.
