"A time of trouble is coming to the forest. A new prophecy must be fulfilled if the Clans are to survive. You have been chosen to meet with three other cats at the new moon, and you must listen to what midnight tells you."
Bluestar to Brambleclaw in Midnight, page 8

The New Prophecy is the second arc of the Warriors series.[2] It follows a patrol made from cats of all Clans sent to seek out Midnight as Twolegs destroy the forest. When they find their new home, the Clans travel over the mountains to reach it.

Midnight The chosen six are called by StarClan to travel to the sun-drown place and listen to what Midnight has to say. They discover Midnight is a badger and she tells them that the Clans are in grave danger and that they must leave the forest. She directs them home through the mountains, where she says their destiny awaits. Meanwhile, the Clans struggle with Twoleg monsters scaring off prey and tearing down the forest.
Moonrise The traveling cats end up at the Tribe of Rushing Water as they travel through the mountains. The Tribe is being terrorized by a mountain lion named Sharptooth. Their ancestors told them that a silver cat would save them. They initially believe Stormfur is the chosen silver cat, but Feathertail ends up fulfilling the prophecy and killing Sharptooth, giving up her own life. The Clans back in the forest continue to be tormented by Twoleg construction and they are slowly starving to death, and cats begin to steal prey and fight out of desperation.
