The Prophecies Begin Arc

Thus, the first Warriors books were planned out by Victoria Holmes, and sent to Kate Cary or Cherith Baldry to put into writing, then published under the name Erin Hunter. They have recently added Tui T. Sutherland to the trio to make it a foursome that share the name Erin Hunter.

Warriors: Omen Of The Stars
The fourth series, Warriors: Omen of the Stars, consists of six books: The Fourth Apprentice , Fading Echoes , Night Whispers , Sign of the Moon , The Forgotten Warrior , and The Last Hope . The series continues the plot of Warriors: Power of Three, after it is discovered at the end of the previous series that Lionblaze and Jayfeather’s sister, Hollyleaf, does not have a special power, and is thus not the third cat foretold in the prophecy “There will be three, kin of your kin, who hold the power of the stars in their paws”. The series begins with Jayfeather and Lionblaze’s discovery that the third cat foretold in the prophecy is Dovepaw, one of Firestar’s great-grandnieces, when she is discovered to possess the ability of clairvoyance. The trio learn throughout the course of the series that the cats of the Dark Forest, who are spirits of deceased Clan cats who committed acts of evil during their lives, are preparing an attack on the living Clan cats, recruiting disgruntled living cats to their cause, brutally training them for battle in their dreams, and manipulating the Clans through these cats. Jayfeather receives a vision informing him that there will be a fourth cat integral to the prophecy, who is ultimately revealed during the climactic battle between the Dark Forest and Clans to be Firestar himself, whose defeat of Tigerstar’s spirit concludes the battle in the Clans’ favor, though Firestar is mortally wounded in the process.

Warriors: Power Of Three
The third series, Warriors: Power of Three, consists of six books: The Sight , Dark River , Outcast , Eclipse , Long Shadows , and Sunrise . The plot is centered on the prophecy “There will be three, kin of your kin, who hold the power of the stars in their paws”, which was given to Firestar in the standalone novel Firestar’s Quest, which takes place between the original Warriors arc and Warriors: The New Prophecy. The prophecy refers to Firestar’s grandchildren, who discover over the course of the series that they each have unique supernatural abilities. Jayfeather, who, despite being congenitally blind, can sense others’ emotions and enter their dreams , first learns of the prophecy when he enters Firestar’s dream. Believing the prophecy refers to him and his siblings, the series details their efforts to discover his siblings’ abilities. They discover that Lionblaze is invulnerable to injury during battle, but, despite their efforts, ultimately conclude that their sister Hollyleaf does not possess any special ability, and thus that the prophecy refers to a yet-undiscovered third cat, a plot point further explored in the subsequent series, Warriors: Omen of the Stars.
Exciting Books Like Warriors By Erin Hunter
If your kids like the Warriors series by Erin Hunter they have a lot of reading material to get through. The publishers of the Warriors and Seekers books have churned out a million novels. However, if you would like your kids to branch out from warring clans of feral cats I’ve got a few Warrior read alike chapter book suggestions for your kids who like Warriors.
First a confession. I have never read a Warriors book. Yet, given all the plot points that my kids have related to me in careful, unsolicited detail, and the few audiobooks I have tried not pay attention to, I feel as if I have.
The list includes a few middle grade books in the “warring clans of animals” genre, but since this is not a topic that interests me I am recommending a larger variety of titles. In short, this list is not limited to “books like Warriors,” but it is heavy on the animal/in-the-wild theme.
Lucky by Chris Hill. I started reading this book, and immediately knew it would be great for a list of books like Warriors. I found it well-written but as it was about clashing clans of squirrels, instead of finishing it I handed it off to my son who pronounced it, “great.” Lucky is a red squirrel who finds himself in a community of grey squirrels, named the “Cloudfoots.” Lucky must pass the Squirrel Trial in order to secure his future as a member of the clan.
