Hello there, Chocokitten123 here and welcome back to Book Review. Today I am going to be talking about Warriors: Dark River. Dark River is about the children of Leafpool and Crowfeather, Hollypaw, Jaypaw, and Lionpaw. It starts off in the camp of of Thunderclan where Lionpaw is getting ready to go to the gathering with his clanmates, Squirrelflight ask Lionpaw if he was nervous. Lionpaw said he was excited and that the most nervous he has ever been is his first gathering. Firestar then signaled with his tail to go forward, the clan cats moved and headed toward the gathering island. When Thunderclan arrived, Lionpaw saw the Windclan leader, the Riverclan leader, and the Shadowclan leader up on the branches of the Great Oak tree. He also saw the deputes and medicine cats at the foot of the tree, Leafpool and Jaypaw went and joined the other medicine cat and Brambleclaw and Firestar went to join the deputes and leaders. Then he heard a voice behind him, it was his good friend Heatherpaw from Windclan. Heatherpaw said it was good to see him and that she has been doing good with hunting and fighting moves. They stopped talking to hear Firestar saying Thunderclan is doing well.
After the gathering Heatherpaw talked to Lionpaw for a little bit, she told him that they should meet more often. Lionpaw asked how they are going to do that, Heatherpaw said that they should meet at the edge of Windclan and Thunderclan territory. Lionpaw hesitated but said yes, Heatherpaw then said that they should meet tomorrow night, Lionpaw nodded and went back to camp with his clanmates. Next night, Lionpaw was at the Windclan border and met Heatherpaw, they played moss ball, they chased each other, and they looked at the stars. Lionpaw then went back to camp when daybreak came, when he got back he was stopped by Hollypaw. She asked why was he out of camp so early, Lionpaw then said that he just wanted to go out on a early morning stroll, he then padded away. Hollypaw then went to the medicine cat den and asked Jaypaw if he knew what was wrong with Lionpaw, Jaypaw then said that he didn’t know. Hollypaw said that at the gathering, Willowpaw, former medicine cat apprentice, was acting strange at the gathering. Jaypaw asked why she was asking him and Hollypaw said that he just knows how other cats fell, Jaypaw snapped at Hollypaw saying that he is not her messenger. Hollypaw then said that she was not saying that and ask if he can ask Willowpaw what was wrong when he goes to the Moonpool with the other medicine cats, Jaypaw says ok and goes on sorting herbs.
Jaypaw then went to the Moonpool that night with Leafpool, Jaypaw smelled other cats coming. Littlecloud came up to them and asked Leafpool if all is well in Thunderclan, Leafpool said yes and asked the same question. Jaypaw then reached the Moonpool, he smelled Willowpaw, Mothwing, and Barkface. They reach the Moonpool and drank from it, Jaypaw laid down and started to dream, he saw Willowpaw begging to back to her den to get some herbs but a Riverclan warrior said they have to go, Willowpaw then went and Jaypaw woke up. Willowpaw woke up Mothwing and said they needed to go, Mothwing got up and went. Then the other cats went back to there clans, Jaypaw then went to sleep in his den. What will happen next? Is the dream he entered just for Willowpaw to deal with or is the dream a warning? Read the book and find out. Well that’s all for now, I am Chocokitten123 and see you next time on Book Review.
