Discover the origins of the warrior Clans in the third book of this thrilling prequel arc in Erin Hunter's #1 nationally bestselling Warriors series. The Dawn of the Clans series takes readers back to the earliest days of the Clans, when the cats first settled in the forest and began to forge the warrior code.
The rivalry between Gray Wing and Clear Sky has driven a bitter wedge between all of the forest cats. As Thunder and Gray Wing struggle to find a peaceful path for the future, tensions are growing—and soon more blood will be shed.
Clear Sky narrowed his eyes. He could see Thunder's bright ginger pelt threading through the ferns. His son was climbing the slope to the moor, leaving the forest with Frost.
I suppose that's what he must do. Clear Sky tried to ignore regret gnawing in his belly. Above him, a soft breeze whispered through the leaves. Warm sunshine dappled his pelt. Behind him, the gnarled trunks of ancient trees creaked. Musty scents pooled at his paws where leaf litter lay thick on the ground. This was his territory. If Thunder didn't want to live here, then he could leave. Frost had to leave, but Thunder had chosen to. Frost was wounded - an injury that was not healing and might grow bad. An infected cat couldn't stay in the camp. His weakness would burden the forest tribe. Doesn't Thunder understand that? he thought, clawing the earth with frustration. Why did so few cats understand him? All he wanted to do was protect his cats in the forest - that was all he'd ever wanted to do, since setting up home here. But his own son had called him a monster for caring. Well, he must leave, then. I won't have my authority undermined. If Clear Sky kept telling himself this, maybe the pain in his belly would fade. . . .
Inside Front Flap:
GREED IS ONLY THE BEGINNING. THERE WILL BE WAR.
Since fleeing from Clear Sky's camp in the forest, Thunder has safely returned to settle on the moor with Gray Wing. But the rivalries that have plagued the cats for moons are growing stronger. Gray Wing still believes there is a way for both groups to live in peace, while Clear Sky insists that harsh rules and divided territories are the only hope for the future.
What started as a misunderstanding between two brothers has spread far and wide - and now every mountain cat, rogue, and kittypet who settles in the forest will be forced to pick a side.
