The time has come for three kits of ThunderClan--Hollypaw, Jaypaw, and Lionpaw--to become apprentices. Grandchildren of the great leader Firestar, all three possess unusual power and talent. But dark secrets surround them, and a mysterious prophecy hints at trouble to come. The warrior code is in danger of being washed away by a river of blood, and all the young cats' strength will be needed if the Clans are to survive.

Our customer reviews

The WARRIORS series continues strongly with the first book in their third mini-series, POWER OF THREE. Having read the entire first and second series', I knew I could expect great things from this book. In a brief explanation of the clan nature, when a kitten is born, they are given a name with "kit" at the end. (Example; Thornkit) When they are six moons (months) old, the "kit" is replaced with "paw." (Example; Cloudpaw) When they have completed their training, they are given their warrior names, which can end in a variety of things such as "heart," "stripe," or "foot." (Example; Fireheart, Graystripe) If a warrior is made deputy and the leader of the clan dies or retires, the deputy makes a journey to the Moonstone/Moonpool and receives a literal nine lives from Starclan (heaven; where dead cats live) along with the end of their warrior name being replaced with "star." (Example; Firestar) In the first series, a kittypet named Rusty joins Thunderclan, one of the four clans in the forest. There is Thunderclan, Riverclan, Windclan, and Shadowclan. Anyway, so he becomes an apprentice and is known as Firepaw. Then he is made a warrior named Fireheart. In the 5th book, the clan leader, Bluestar, dies. Before then, she had made Fireheart her deputy, who will be her successor when she dies. So Fireheart is made Firestar. In the second series, the clans set out on a journey to find a new home because humans are ruining their old one. Squirrelpaw, one of Firestar's daughters, falls in love with a warrior named Brambleclaw. When they reach their new home, Squirrelpaw is made a warrior and earns her warrior name, Squirrelflight. Before the 3rd series and after the end of the 2nd, Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight have kits. Okay, so the 3rd series starts out with Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight's children, Jaykit, Hollykit, and Lionkit, who are the grandchildren of the great Firestar himself! Many events will have you twisting and turning, trying to find the answer, including the biggest answer of all. There is a prophecy that was told to Firestar by Starclan. "There will be three, kin of your kin, who will hold the power of the stars in their paws." What does this prophecy mean? THE SIGHT begins the series anew quite nicely. Throughout its 363 pages, there is action, such as battles between the clans that are so descriptive that you can see a cat sinking its teeth into another's hind leg. There is drama, such as when Hollykit's heart says she wants to be a medicine cat, but her skills lie elsewhere. Jaykit is blind, so he can never be a warrior, despite how hard he tries. Leafpool thinks he should be a medicine cat, but he doesn't want to. And what could Lionkit's interest in Heatherpaw mean for the clan? Basically, if you don't like picturing blood, teeth sinking into flesh, and claws ripping through fur, then the battle parts I would highly recommend skipping. Otherwise, it's a great book that will have you begging for more. After all, it says "The National Bestselling Series" right on the front cover, and I wouldn't deny it. Another thing though - if you absolutely hate cats, this series isn't for you!show more
