Teen Reviewer Lance Kennedy, 12, read A Dangerous Path by Erin Hunter and loved it. A Dangerous Path is book is #5 of the original Warriors Series, a continuing saga about four clans of feral cats (Thunderclan, Shadowclan, Riverclan, and Windclan) who co-exist together in the wilderness. However, dealings between the clans aren't always peaceful.This 6-book series centers around Fireheart, a former kittypet (pet cat) who ran away from home to join Thunderclan. Despite his pampered beginnings, Fireheart eventually earned the respect of his clanmates, raising to the rank of deputy (second in command) and eventually taking over the clan when the old leader dies.
Here is Lance's review:
A Dangerous Path was about the challenges of Fireheart and how he deals with Tigerstar (Shadowclan leader), his worst enemy. Bluestar (leader of Thunderclan) is dying, and Fireheart needs to figure out what Tigerstar is up to. Fireheart finds out Tigerstar plans to unleash giant dogs on Thunderclan. Fireheart saves his the whole clan, except for Bluestar, who dies. This means Fireheart is Firestar, the new leader of Thunderclan.--Lance Kennedy, 12, guest reviewer
