D's Review - Warriors series by Erin Hunter

Series: Warriors
Author: Erin Hunter
Age Range: 10+
D's Rating: 5/5 Stars

Summary from Goodreads:  For generations, four Clans of wild cats have shared the forest according to the laws laid down by their warrior ancestors. But the ThunderClan cats are in grave danger, and the sinister ShadowClan grows stronger every day. Noble warriors are dying-- and some deaths are more mysterious than others. In the midst of this turmoil appears an ordinary house cat named Rusty . . . who may turn out to be the bravest warrior of them all.

The Warriors series by Erin Hunter is a fantastic animal adventure series, perfect for middle grade readers. The overall series is made up of several smaller series of six books each (plus some standalone "super editions"), and there are over thirty books that have been written so far. My daughter has read almost all of these books, many of them more than once (some of them she's read three or four times).

I love these cat books because there is so much going on and these are not your ordinary cats. They are warriors. They are split into four clans: Riverclan, Thunderclan, Windclan and Shadowclan. These books are filled with excitement! Sometimes the cats battle over territory. Sometimes a cat will lose almost his or her whole family because of things like sickness, such as white cough, or infection from a battle. Sometimes twolegs make it harder for the cats to survive because they try to catch them or destroy their territory. The books also tell about the cats' everyday lives and how hard it is for them to survive - they have to catch prey every day, do battle training, get herbs for the medicine cat, do border patrols to make sure no enemy clans steal prey, plus much more. I loved the fact that the books used interesting words to describe things - like "twolegs" for humans or "kittypet" for a house cat. 

I've read over twenty of these books, and I still can't wait to read the next! I've even read some of the books twice! I think that kids who like adventure books would think these books are exciting.
