Warriors is a series of several books,[1] organized into arcs, presenting the adventures of feral cats living in self-supporting groups called Clans. They are published by HarperCollins[2] under the pen name Erin Hunter. As of 2015, over 20 million books have been sold.[3]



Main Storyline

The Dawn of the Clans Arc

This is the fifth arc of Warriors. The series revolves around the time prior to and of the origin of the five Clans, and explains how they came to be. It takes place long before any previous arc, even before the start of the Clans.[4] During this arc, several cats journey away from the mountains, and into the forest, in hopes of a more suitable home. However, this group eventually splits off into two groups; Clear Sky's Camp and Tall Shadow's Camp, lead by Clear Sky and Tall Shadow, respectively. However, the latter has stepped down, leaving Gray Wing in the position as a leader, but they will eventually jointly lead together.[5] Vicky has stated on her Facebook page that she is not involved with Dawn of the Clans, aside from book one, The Sun Trail.[6]

The Sun Trail

Follow the trail of the rising sun. . .
For many moons, a tribe of cats has lived peacefully near the top of a mountain. But prey is scarce and seasons are harsh—and their leader fears they will not survive. When a mysterious vision reveals a land filled with food and water, a group of brave young cats sets off in search of a better home.
But great dangers await them. In this unfamiliar world, faced with loners and fierce rogues all vying for territory and power, the traveling cats must find a new way to live side by side—or risk tearing one another apart.[7]

Thunder Rising

The mountain cats from the Tribe of Rushing Water followed the Sun Trail to a new territory, convinced that in a land with more prey, their lives would be free from strife. But while no cat has gone hungry, tensions are rising. The once firmly united group has split in two—and a young cat named Thunder is caught in the middle.[8]

The First Battle

Far too many cats have already been lost to the tension's thorn sharp claws, ripping out former friendships and alliances like leaves.
The rivalry between Gray Wing and Clear Sky has driven a bitter wedge between the forest cats. As Thunder and Gray Wing struggle to find a peaceful path for the future, tensions are growing. What began as a misunderstanding between two brothers has spread far and wide—and now every mountain cat, rogue, and kittypet in the forest will be forced to pick a side.[9]

The Blazing Star

In the aftermath of the Great Battle, Tall Shadow's group and Clear Sky's group attempt to make amends with each other to honor the fallen victims of the battle. When the spirit cats ask them to meet at the four trees a moon after the battle, the cats receive a message, telling them to spread like the "Blazing Star". The cats are confused and try to figure out the meaning of the strange omen, only to be side-stepped when One Eye, a vicious rogue joins the forest and takes over Clear Sky's camp. In addition to One Eye's reign, a mysterious plague threatens the moor and woods, which turns fatal. Thanks to the help of recruited rogue cats, the cats figure out what the Blazing Star is: a five-petaled plant that cures the sickness. The two groups manage to heal the sickness with the Blazing Star, but they have one more challenge to tackle - One Eye. The two groups combine - Tall Shadow's group and Clear Sky's group, along with the help of River Ripple. Using Gray Wing's improvision of battle skills, they manage to take down One Eye. Although it seems like their major problems are over, the spirit cats reappear, telling them that although they had overcome many obstacles, they still had not obeyed their message - to grow and spread like the Blazing Star.

A Forest Divided

The threat from One Eye is gone, but the divisions between the groups are high. Clear Sky is visited by Fluttering Bird, and he misinterprets her message as the groups joining together. However, the other groups are reluctant to agree, and believe they should separate into their own five groups, just like how the Blazing Star is separated into five petals, stretching in different directions. Clear Sky is disappointed at how his plan didn't work, but he eventually establishes his own group, and Tall Shadow, Wind Runner, River Ripple, and Thunder establish their own. Although One Eye is no more, there's another threat lurking on the horizon, and his name is Slash. He kidnaps Clear Sky's mate, Star Flower, and Clear Sky vows to do what he can to get her back.

Path of Stars

Slash is on the run, and more dangerous as ever. In order to overthrow him, the five groups must join together. They are hesitant to help Clear Sky, but as Slash becomes more vicious and more rogues join him, their way of life may be in danger. Although they are separate, they must combine forces to not only save Star Flower and Clear Sky's unborn kits, but they must be able to save their future.

The Prophecies Begin Arc

This was the group of books that started Warriors. Originally, Into the Wild was planned as a single book, where "Rusty would become Firestar by the end, and that would have been all you’d ever have known about the cats of the Clans." However, the publisher was impressed with it and said there was enough for six books.[10] 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.

Into the Wild

A young kittypet named Rusty enters the forest, where he has heard rumors of wild cats living. He is shocked to meet Graypaw, one of these cats, and even more surprised when Bluestar invites him to live with them and learn their ways. Now Firepaw, an apprentice of ThunderClan, struggles to be accepted by his new Clanmates, and gets more than he bargained for when he uncovers treachery deep in the heart of the Clan...

Fire and Ice

Firepaw has earned his warrior name, Fireheart, along with his friend Graystripe, and Ravenpaw is finally safe from Tigerclaw's wrath when he escapes to Barley's farm. However, his problems are far from over... he has only just broken the surface of an elaborate cover-up that could be dangerous to the whole Clan, and Bluestar won't listen. On top of that, Graystripe has found a love interest, and it's pulling him away. Yet with the winter chill which has brought illness and death, time is running out for in the midst of it all, a tragic accident befalls one cat, changing their path forever.

Forest of Secrets

Fireheart is beginning to discover that Tigerclaw isn't the only one with secrets. Graystripe spends all his time trying to keep his forbidden love, the beautiful RiverClan she-cat, Silverstream, hidden from the Clan, and even the leader, Bluestar, might have something she's been hiding. But all secrets have to come out eventually, and when they do, it isn't always good...

Rising Storm

Now that Tigerclaw's treachery has finally been exposed, Fireheart has been entrusted with the responsibilities of deputy of ThunderClan. It would seem his troubles are over, but Tigerclaw still roams the forest as a rogue, plotting his revenge, and Fireheart's nephew Cloudpaw suddenly vanishes. If that weren't enough, "fire" might not be saving the Clan like it is supposed to... it might just force ThunderClan right out of its home.

A Dangerous Path

With Tigerstar as the new leader of ShadowClan and Bluestar declaring war with StarClan, their warrior ancestors, Fireheart is literally leading the Clan himself. As if it weren't hard enough already, prey begins disappearing from the forest, and it becomes clear that none of the other Clans are the culprit; it's a pack of vicious dogs that have acquired a taste for ThunderClan blood.

The Darkest Hour

After Bluestar's courageous sacrifice to save ThunderClan from the dogs, Fireheart is the new leader of ThunderClan, and takes his new name, Firestar. He thinks that Tigerstar's path of destruction and vengeance is through, but he is wrong - Tigerstar and Leopardstar have combined their Clans to form a deadly alliance called TigerClan. But Tigerstar's own plan might just backfire on him, when he tries to make a deal with the unruly group of rogues bound by no code: BloodClan, which is under the rule of a vicious, bloodthirsty cat who desires revenge for what happened to him many moons ago.

The New Prophecy Arc

This arc is a continuation of the first, taking place roughly eighteen moons later.[11] Many cats from the first arc still appear, but the main characters are cats from the younger generation. Originally, only three books were planned, having the arc end when the Clans arrived at the lake. However, the publisher requested three more volumes,[12] so the total number was six, like the first arc.

Midnight

It is a time of relative peace among the four Clans of the forest. Many moons have passed since the ordeal with BloodClan, and the Clans have had few quarrels since then. However, Brambleclaw, the eldest son of Tigerstar, receives a mysterious prophecy telling him to go on a journey with cats from each of the other Clans. They do not know what awaits them at the end, but when they find "Midnight" as they have been told, they learn something that might just spell out doom for all of the Clans.

Moonrise

As the journeying cats head back home to share their grim news, they choose a different route: through the rocky mountain peaks. Along the way, they meet another group of cats, different from anything they have ever known, who call themselves the Tribe of Rushing Water. Meanwhile, back in the forest, the Clans have noticed an increase in Twoleg presence. Not only that, but there has been poisoned prey, and many cats suddenly vanishing. As leaf-bare sets in, starvation becomes a real threat to all the Clans. The journeying cats must return quickly to help save their friends and family, but the Tribe cats have their own problems. Problems that they need one of the journeying cats to solve.

Dawn

The journeying cats have finally returned after their harrowing travels and brought back their grim news. It is worse than they thought - their Clans are already starving and struggling to survive as Twolegs destroy the forest around them. Their only option might be to find a new home, but some cats are less than eager to venture into the unknown. What dangers might await them along the way? Could they find a home that is as good as their previous one? More importantly, will they be able to find a home safe from the destructive Twolegs at all?

Starlight

After a long, dangerous journey, the Clans have found a new home by a lake, and the journey has cemented them together as they worked for their common cause. Now that they have settled down, though, newly forged bonds are ripped apart as the united Clans split into four again. Although the Twolegs and their dreadful machines are nowhere to be seen, new troubles await them at their new home... if it really is meant to be their new home.

Twilight

Things seem to have finally calmed down for the four Clans. They have settled into their new homes, found the Moonpool to replace the Moonstone, and the rebellion started by Mudclaw is not only over, it has provided them with a place to hold Gatherings. And so, the warriors begin to settle down themselves, with mates. But not so for Leafpool - as the apprentice medicine cat of ThunderClan she's sworn never to love another cat. But when her sister drifts away from her, and even StarClan seem to be turning their backs on her, she might just take an opportunity that presents itself... and her choice could be one of the most important decisions of her life. And it could not have come at a worse time, for just when she is forced to decide, a nasty surprise shows up for ThunderClan.

Sunset

ThunderClan is devastated from the badger attack. They have lost an experienced medicine cat, many good warriors, and their camp has been ravaged. However, help shows up from unexpected places, and Leafpool realizes that her loyalty truly lies with her Clan, not with her love. It would seem that all the enemies have finally stopped attacking, but one final cat reveals their deadly ambition... a cat Brambleclaw would have trusted with his life.

The Power of Three Arc

This arc picks up roughly nine moons after the New Prophecy Arc,[13] and once again features a new generation of cats. It revolves around the mysterious prophecy given to Firestar, "There will be Three, kin of your kin, who hold the power of the stars in their paws."

The Sight

Hollykit, Lionkit, and Jaykit are the young kits of Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight, and quite close as siblings. Though their interests differ, with Hollykit wanting to become a medicine cat apprentice, Jaykit determined to become a warrior, and Lionkit already a good fighter, they still rely on each other and know they share some special bond. But when they become apprentices, their journeys are not as smooth as they had hoped; Jaypaw struggles to overcome his blindness and stay a warrior apprentice, while Hollypaw finds being a medicine cat more difficult than she had thought. They might have to admit to themselves that they are not on their destined paths, and work in the areas of their distinct talents.

Dark River

Lionpaw tests the boundaries between the Clans with a new forbidden friend whilst honing his battle skills with the help of a secret mentor, but finds himself forced to choose between the two. Hollypaw becomes concerned with the problems of an enemy Clan whilst Jaypaw struggles to understand his connection with StarClan and explores his newly-found powers. When the three find themselves trapped in some secret tunnels with WindClan cats, they must find a way out if they are to have any hope of avoiding battle between the Clans.

Outcast

The Tribe of Rushing Water needs the Clans' help desperately, so Talon and Night journey to ThunderClan to ask for help. When they arrive ThunderClan welcomes them and agrees to help. Lionpaw with Brambleclaw and Hollypaw with Squirrelflight go to ShadowClan and WindClan respectively to fetch Tawnypelt and Crowfeather, whom reluctantly brings Breezepaw along. They set off with Jaypaw and the Tribe cats. Can the Clan cats assist the Tribe in dealing with the rogues threatening their home, or will they be forced to leave the mountains forever?

Eclipse

Lionpaw, Jaypaw and Hollypaw are faced with the problem of an outsider who seems to know all about them and the prophecy. While they search for the answers they seek, he delivers a shocking premonition which even StarClan have not foreseen. When his words prove true, battle between all four Clans breaks out and some warriors lose their faith in StarClan forever.

Long Shadows

Hollyleaf, Lionblaze, who are now warriors, and Jaypaw are still struggling to unravel the secrets of their prophecy. As Sol takes power over ShadowClan's faith in their ancestors, Tawnypelt and her kits turn to ThunderClan for help. With the help of three newfound friends, Jaypaw, Hollyleaf, and Lionblaze must try to restore ShadowClan's belief in StarClan. But an unexpected grudge threatens to reveal itself, and the three prophesied cats find their identity at risk.

Sunrise

Every cat believes that Sol murdered Ashfur and faced with these accusations, Firestar soon sends his warriors to find Sol at the sun-drown-place. Their quest leads them to the Big Twolegplace, where they find a group of cats led by a loner named Jingo. Sol has tormented these cats before, and, with the help of Jingo, the questing cats track him down. Meanwhile, back home, Jayfeather struggles to find out the identity of his and his siblings' real parents, and uncover the secrets that have been kept from them all their lives...

The Omen of the Stars Arc

Omen of the Stars is more of a direct continuation from the Power of Three, keeping some of the same main characters but also having some new viewpoints. It takes place six moons after The Power of Three ends.[14]

The Fourth Apprentice

The Clans are suffering from a severe drought and tensions are rising. Jayfeather and Lionblaze mourn the loss of their sister but soon discover the third cat in the prophecy: Dovepaw. She begins to learn how to use her power and accompanies the patrol of all four Clans upstream to find out what is preventing the flow of water to the lake and save their Clanmates back home. Once again, cats of rival Clans must learn to put their differences behind them for the sake of every cat.

Fading Echoes

The water having been returned to the lake, the Clans are getting on with their lives, but while Dovepaw struggles to put her newly-formed friendships aside in her loyalty to her own Clan, there are greater troubles on the horizon. The Dark Forest is recruiting living cats to aid them in their war against StarClan, and a jealous and stubborn Ivypaw finds herself in the midst of it. With the threat of battle looming, these cats need to decide with whom their loyalties lie.

Night Whispers

The deadly battle with ShadowClan is over, and both Clans are suffering from the results. Ivypaw falls deeper into Tigerstar's trap, Littlecloud falls deathly ill, and Dovepaw discovers a forbidden friend (or maybe more than that). When each medicine cat receives an omen that their Clan must stand alone to face the danger, the threat of an upcoming battle is almost here, and friendships may be destroyed in the process.

Sign of the Moon

Jayfeather, Lionblaze and the newly named Dovewing fight to maintain the uneasy peace among the Clans. But as harsh leaf-bare continues to grip the territories, Jayfeather is summoned to the mountains by a desperate plea from the origins of the prophecy - the Tribe of Rushing Water stands on the brink of being lost forever.

The Forgotten Warrior

Sol has returned and he is welcomed by Firestar because the Clan believes he saved Poppyfrost's kits, Cherrypaw and Molepaw, from a fox, but it is revealed he is not trying to help ThunderClan, but endanger the Clan.
Sol soon goes to WindClan and plots with them against ThunderClan. They chase Dovewing and Ivypool into the tunnels where they find Hollyleaf. Hollyleaf goes back to ThunderClan and teaches the cats how to fight in tunnels. WindClan attacks, but fails to win the fight. Hollyleaf and Dovewing attack Sol and leave him terribly injured, but let him free because of the warrior code.

The Last Hope

"The end of the stars draws near. Three must become four to battle the darkness that lasts forever." Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Dovewing must search for the fourth cat that fulfills this prophecy. No cat can be trusted as some take the side of the Clans, as others take the side of the Dark Forest. A tale of intensity, friendship, loyalty, and in some cases, backstab. Omen of the Stars concludes with this sure hit to Warriors readers.

The A Vision of Shadows Arc

Kate has mentioned on her blog that there is a sixth arc of Warriors planned,[15] and it was initially unclear as to which path the arc would take.[16] It was first stated that the Erin Hunter team would continue with Dawn of the Clans,[17][18] however, it has since stated that HarperCollins has not decided yet.[19] Vicky has revealed on her Facebook page that she is not involved with this arc, just as she is not involved with Dawn of the Clans, sans The Sun Trail. News regarding this arc and what it pertains to will be announced soon.[20] In a personalized letter to a fan, Vicky has confirmed that arc six will revolve around the modern Clans, instead of Dawn of the Clans.[21] Kate has also stated Cherith is writing the first book.[22] Kate revealed on her blog that, as of February 2015, the working title for this arc is StarClan's Promise.[23] However, this was later changed to A Vision of Shadows.[24] Vicky has also confirmed on her Facebook that we will see SkyClan appear in this arc.[25]

The Apprentice's Quest

Alderpaw, the son of Bramblestar and Squirrelflight, focuses his path on becoming a medicine cat until he is called to find the long lost Clan of SkyClan. He journeys with ThunderClan cats to find SkyClan, only to see that it isn't. They are driven away from the "fake" SkyClan, their journey to find the real SkyClan a failure. However, not all is lost, as Alderpaw and Needlepaw find something that could prove to help the four Clans of the lake - two orphaned kits, who are given the names Violetkit and Twigkit.

Thunder and Shadow

The two kits that Alderpaw and Needlepaw found on the way back from their journey to find SkyClan, Violetkit and Twigkit, now reside in ShadowClan and ThunderClan, respectively. Twigkit finds her home in ThunderClan with Alderpaw to be quite fun, although Violetkit is finding it very hard to fit in with her ShadowClan family. Her only friend is the cat that found her, and while she misses her sister, she finds that Needlepaw is turning out to be her only kin that she has. With the threat from Darktail and his rogues mounting, things are getting harder for ShadowClan to stay true to the warrior code and themselves. Many of ShadowClan's cats join them, including Needlepaw and a newly named Violetpaw, forcing Rowanstar out of ShadowClan. Only three cats stay true to the code, and Rowanstar, Tawnypelt, and Tigerheart travel to ThunderClan to seek shelter and a home.

After choosing between the love of her life and what she knows to be right, Sasha runs from the forest with fear that Tigerstar is following her. He haunts her dreams and clouds her mind, and she cannot escape him despite her efforts. Sasha discovers that life as a rogue is much harder than she imagined it to be, and she begins to lose hope. And to make matters worse, she's now harboring a dark secret...

Return to the Clans

Sasha is back and with three new additions to the family. Hawk, Moth and Tadpole are her only memories of their father, Tigerstar. She's finally back with the Clans, but Tigerstar is dead. Sasha knows that if her kits are going to be safe without being judged for their heritage, she has to leave. Sasha eventually finds herself in RiverClan. The cats welcome them there and train her kits to be warriors, but the longing to travel is tugging at her paws. Where does she belong?

The Ravenpaw's Path Arc

These mangas tell the story of Ravenpaw, who became a loner after leaving ThunderClan.

Shattered Peace

It's been many moons since Ravenpaw escaped from the forest and Tigerstar's eyes. He and his friend Barley welcome in a band of rogues, but there's something darkly strange about them. Barley is the only one who seems to notice, as Ravenpaw is blinded by his memories of his Clan days. But by the time his eyes open, will it already be too late?

A Clan in Need

Ravenpaw and Barley have been driven away from their farm by a band of rogues. Now the two loners have no choice but to turn to ThunderClan - led by Firestar. As much as Firestar and the warriors would love to help their friends, ThunderClan is having problems of their own. BloodClan cats have been raiding hunting patrols and stealing ThunderClan prey and the Clan is going hungry. Barley is the only one who knows how BloodClan operates and he must contact his sister to take down their leaders, who are his brothers. Ravenpaw, Barley, his sister Violet, and ThunderClan are the only cats who can put an end to BloodClan... permanently.

The Heart of a Warrior

BloodClan are defeated and Ravenpaw and Barley are ready to return to their home. Despite the help of a patrol sent by Firestar, Ravenpaw is under no illusions that chasing out the invaders will be an easy task. He must search deep inside himself for the courage he was born with: the courage and bravery of a true warrior.

The SkyClan and the Stranger Arc

This manga arc follows SkyClan and the experience they have with a new arrival. This arc takes place during The New Prophecy.[43]

The Rescue

Leafstar is now expecting kits, but she is worried how it will affect her Clan. She is not only worried about her unborn children, but about a secret that the new apprentices are harboring. It could endanger SkyClan in ways she couldn't have imagined.

Beyond the Code

After he rescues her and her kits from his Twoleg's nest, Leafstar invites Sol into her Clan, but inviting him nearly causes SkyClan's destruction, and Leafstar has to find out whether she can trust him or not- before it's too late.

After the Flood

Leafstar has been wary of Sol ever since he joined SkyClan, and the longer he stays in the Clan’s midst, the more Leafstar’s suspicion of him grows. When Sol’s actions threaten disaster, Leafstar must find a way to protect her Clanmates‒no matter the cost.
