THE DARKEST HOUR by Erin Hunter
The Darkest Hour - Erin Hunter
  This ends the first series of the Warrior books. Fireheart is now the leader of ThunderClan. There is a new danger in the woods and not what he expected. As he works to bring his clan together again and discover the new danger to them, he also deals with becoming the leader needed by the clan at this time.

I love this series. Though reluctant to get into the books at first, I look forward to reading more of

I love this series. Though reluctant to get into the books at first, I look forward to reading more of the clans. I needed Kleenex for this one as Fireheart becomes Firestar and goes through the ceremony for that then dealing with those whose lives will end (there is always someone who won't be back) and the betrayals. This is a series recommended by niece and she never gives me a hint of what will happen.

A DANGEROUS PATH by Erin Hunter
A Dangerous Path - Erin Hunter
  Tigerclaw has finally gotten what he wants--his own clan. Now Tigerstar, he is the leader of Shadow Clan. He is tearing Thunder Clan apart as the clan tries to rebuild after the fire (see book 4.) Fireheart is having problems as the deputy of Thunder Clan. Bluestar is not well and has lost faith in Star Clan. Fireheart knows how bad it is for the clan and now there is more darkness in the forest that seeks to destroy Thunder Clan.

I love this series. As I get further into the story I get sucked in the books and want to know what will happen. Now truths are being publicly revealed. Loyalties are being tested and strained. New problems are arising. What is the sense of keeping your clan's secrets when full disclosure would help all the clans?

This series is well done and will hold the interest of all readers regardless of age.

RISING STORM by Erin Hunter
Rising Storm - Erin Hunter
  Fourth book of the first Warriors series. Bluestar is having a hard time getting over Tigerclaw's betrayal. Fireheart is learning to be deputy but he is thwarted by Bluestar's lack of presence in the clan. He is also having problems with Cloudpaw. When tragedy strikes Fireheart must lead his clan to safety while dealing with rogues.

I am enjoying this series. My niece got me into it and refuses to answer any questions. "You'll just have to read to find out," she tells me. I like Thunder Clan. I also enjoy watching Fireheart learn how to lead. He makes mistakes but is willing to learn and to listen to those of experience. He has problems inside and outside the Clan. He does his best in all situations.

The story is full of action and adventure. There is intrigue and some romance. Fireheart is clueless there. It is also good to see that blood does not always mean family. It means being able to trust those that have your back.

24in48 Read-A-Thon TBR
March: Book Two - Andrew Aydin,Nate Powell,John Robert Lewis
Prom and Prejudice - Elizabeth Eulberg
The Sun Trail (Warriors: Dawn of the Clans) - Erin Hunter,Wayne McLoughlin
Double Love - Francine Pascal

This weekend is a five-day vacation for my son, due to school being closed (for students; teachers are still at work due to training requirements). This comes after last weekend's unexpected four day weekend (Friday was a snow day - the 1/2 inch of accumulated white stuff totally was worth closing school...and Monday was a holiday). And the kids are now on countdown to their respective birthdays. Just saying, keep me and my sanity in your thoughts.

 

This weekend is also the winter edition of 24in48 Read-a-thon. I found that breaking up my reading into four hour blocks is easiest to accomplish (3 blocks per day) and allows me to sleep. I'm going to try and knock out a few Romance Bingo squares and Pop Sugar prompts, so I went with some quick reads for the TBR:

 

1. March Volume 2 by Rep. John Lewis

            I read the first volume last year and my library just got this volume in; fingers crossed that volume 3 has at least been ordered. Pop Sugar prompt: book with pictures.

 

2. Prom and Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg

           A re-telling of Pride and Prejudice for YA Romance square. My first attempt at filling this square didn't end with a HFN or HEA (OOPS!), so it was disqualified in my opinion. This time, I read the last few pages to ensure this book did have a correct ending before I borrowed.

 

3. The Sun Trail (Warriors: Dawn of the Clans #1) by Erin Hunter

    Pop Sugar prompt: book with a cat on the cover. Found this while looking for a YA romance book.

 

4. Double Love (Sweet Valley High #1) by Francine Pascal and Kate William

            Double time: meets Romance Bingo square for twins and Pop Sugar prompt: book from childhood. First read this book when I was eight (a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away....New Jersey in the 1987).

 

For those of you participating in 24in48, good luck on your goals and I hope you have fun!

A desperate quest for revenge
Tallstar's Revenge - Erin Hunter,James L. Barry

Tallkit has always felt caged on the moor he calls home. Growing up, he was never able to fulfill his father's expectations, becoming a moor runner rather than a tunneler as both his parents were. After the shadow clan attack, the death of Brackenwing in battle, his father in a cave-in, and the banning of tunneling, the chain of events took a toll on Talltail, laying burden after burden on his shoulders. In an attempt to leave it all behind and take revenge by killing Sparrow, the rogue cat that was able to mysteriously escape the same cave-in of which Talltail's father died, Talltail decides to leave the camp. Along the way, he befriends a kittypet named Jake, who aids him on his journey to find Sparrow. In the end, Talltail learns that his father sacrificed himself in order to save Sparrow, and he returns back to the clan, back to the place he calls home.

 

Mahatma Gandhi said “An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.” Tallstar is but another victim of revenge's grasp. He has been tormented by the thought of never meeting his father's expectations as he was alive, so killing the one who killed him was a desperate effort to supposedly please his father. This is not so different from the Taliban's situation. They were declined the basic right of education, so they bomb schools and kill teachers to keep others away from what they never were able to receive.

 

Kate Cary is an amazing author who reveals life through the eyes of animals. I recommend this book to new readers who love a thrill of adventure, excitement, and the journey to find where you belong.
