Warrior Cat Books

In a Clan, there is never more than one medicine cat apprentice at any one time: a medicine cat apprentice helps by gathering herbs and learning medical knowledge, but he or she is considered an apprentice until the current medicine cat dies or retires, even if he or she has already received a full medicine cat name. There are also warrior apprentices (usually referred to simply as apprentices), who train to hunt for and defend their Clan, as are the duties of a warrior. All apprentices’ names end with the suffix -paw. These apprentices are mentored by warriors, who pass down the knowledge and skills they have learned from their own mentors. Apprenticeships usually last approximately six months. Apprentices occasionally undergo assessments to determine their progress, and they become warriors when their mentors deem them worthy of the responsibility of being a warrior, and the clan leader approves this decision. Warrior name suffixes (e.g. -claw, -heart, -pelt, -tail, etc.) are selected by the leader during the warrior ceremony.

The Clans have a hierarchical system, with different cats having different positions within the Clan. The leader receives his or her nine lives and leader name ending with the suffix -star from StarClan after he or she goes to the Moonstone/Moonpool. The leader makes all major decisions for the Clan, such as deciding when to wage a battle or promote a warrior. The leader’s word is law, according to the warrior code, and must be followed. The deputy is second in command and succeeds the leader when the leader loses his or her last life or retires and becomes an elder. The deputy’s job is mainly to organize patrols and other everyday tasks. In order to be appointed deputy by the leader, a cat must already be a warrior and have mentored at least one apprentice. There is also a medicine cat in each Clan, who receives messages from StarClan and is trained extensively in the uses of herbs to heal sick or injured cats. Medicine cats are not allowed to have kits or mates, as it would deter them from their duties. At each half-moon, the medicine cats from each Clan meet at the Moonstone/Moonpool to communicate with StarClan.

Teen, 14 years old Written byAgent663 March 6, 2013 age 13+ Violent but amazing. As tvtropes.org puts it: It's a series about a bunch of cats living in a forest which is marketed to ages 9-12 and decorated with colorful covers. But as for what's under the covers? As the title implies, there is a lot of fighting in these books, accompanied by pseudo-realistic (and often very graphic) violence. Pretty much every fight ends with every character involved bleeding from at least one gash, and on a few occasions cats have had their throats slit or torn open and bleed to death. And those are some of the average moments. The series goes on to feature cats having their eyes clawed out, getting run over by cars, being crippled, bleeding to death while giving birth, getting mauled by dogs, being ripped open and left to bleed to death nine times, being slaughtered by an Ax Crazy mountain lion, impaling a mountain lion with a stalactite, falling off cliffs and breaking their necks, getting crushed by trees, having their tails removed, having a wooden stake driven into their throat, drowning in a series of dark tunnels which they are forced to wander for all eternity, bleeding heavily from gashes in their stomachs, being tortured by extremely bloody nightmares, slowly bleeding to death after being severely wounded by a beaver's teeth, hearing another cat screaming in agony as his stomach is ripped open offscreen, etc. How these books being considered child-friendly has never been challenged by parents or bookstores for all these years is a mystery. Not to mention the fact that it covers themes like racism (although towards fictional races, which technically makes it okay), genocide, moral ambiguity, organized religion, insanity, and war. Even though there is a ton of violence (as tvtropes.org points out), the books are quite amazing, featuring a cast of cats with more human traits than most human characters in other books these days. It is sad, epic, and even funny on some occasions! Also, there are about thirty of these books, so you can be reading for a while. In addition to all of this, the heroes are quite fantastic role models, as they do what is right and follow a noble warrior code. I recommend this series to all who can handle the high levels of blood and gore depicted in the novels What other families should knowGreat messagesGreat role modelsToo much violence Was this review useful?
