Reasons Why Warrior Cats Is a Great Book Series

Warrior Cats is my second favorite book franchise (nothing can beat Pretty Little Liars, of course) and those are the reasons why I love this series.

The Top Ten Reasons Why Warrior Cats Is a Great Book Series

1 Great Plot

War, blood, gore, forbidden romance, love, family love, bonds, teamwork, the circle of life, mystery, equality, religion, politic like happenings, yeah this has it all. And plus, the fandom is kind to you, (at least as long as you except them, lol) and welcomes you into the fandom. Also, you don't have to be part of the fandom to be a fan!

The writing is truly impeccable. Explaining it makes you sound like a wacko, but reading it transports you to another world entirely. - keycha1n

This story has a great and creative plot that I really enjoy - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

I honestly like the first and sixth series the best. - IcetailofWishClan

2 Cool Characters

For me the characters are even better than the hobbits of Lord of the Rings Altough Lotr is my second favourite series - Potterhead2001

(MOST! ) of the characters are well-developed and aren't mary/gary-sues. My favourite cat is Firestar because I'm his biggest fan, if I was a warrior cat I'd be Sandstorm. My least favourite is Scourge.

The characters are likable and we easily accept them. My favorite character is Fireheart - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

They have a lot of great characters in the series and a lot of suprises they have and secrets that will bring you in shock when I heard Bluestar had kits I died (not really) I was so shocked.

3 Positive Messages

Warrior Cats is an amazing series that shows loyalty, passion, and choosing wisely

This has positive messages such as protecting their clans and the people the characters love. - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

Yes unlike other series

4 For Everyone

But children- - subscribe2pewdiepie

Except if you can’t handle gore - RoseWeasley

Yeah! Not for squeamish people in the darkest hour 0.0

Warrior Cats is a great serie, no matter if you are 10 or 100 - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

5 Good Role Models

Fireheart and Graystipe helps other cats even if they aren't their best friend. - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

Firestar and Greystripe where GREAT role models

Yes and noFirestar = goodTigerstar = bad

6 Mature

It has really deep stuff going on, people think its for younger kids, but I honestly believe teens and adults can read it too.

Well, the books are. It's fans...I think it's safe to say we're all weirdos.

Please don't hate me

7 Not As Childish As You'd Think

The books are really dark, interesting, and sad. I think I cried over fictional cats way more than I should. I still do..

Usually, the covers are pictures of a cat. People assume that it's childish, but it truly isn't. - Minecraftcrazy530

The cover seemed childish at first, but inside it's not childish at all - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

Yeah, sure, a lot of people like warriors at age 9-10. But really... there's so much more. Romance, war, death, politics, religion... it handles a lot of deep stuff.

8 Not Stereotypical

Some books use a lot of stereotypes (like Pretty Little Liars that has an hightly stereotyped character (Alison DiLaurentis)) while Warrior Cats doesn't seems to use stereotypes - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

9 Cool Fanbase

The fans of the books are really cool and nice, unlike some fanbases that are annoying. - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

Urm... Something I may have to disagree on. Being a crazy fan who used to write fanfictions and role play, I can say the fan base is kind of scary. - keycha1n

10 Females Are Valued As Much As Males

YES! Finally something that actually adds in females! I hate it when there are absolutely no gurls. No offense to Jr Tolkien, but Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit has 0 girls. Almost. At least there though r females in this. Yay

Yes! They treat the girls nomally. A lot of books forget about them or make them scadey cats and not do anything brave. But in warrior cats they join in on fight and all of that stuff.

This is a great reason, queens are respected for protecting the clans future and female warriors are not disrespected in battle since they are just as formidable as Tom cats (look at hollyleaf! )

Yes that is my 2# reason!

The Contenders

11 Clever

It is! If I was to type a chapter book, and I was given 300 pages, I wouldn't know what to write of! The whole idea was very clever to come up with. Props to you, Erin Hunter!

12 The Romance

Forbidden Love is the best!

Greystripe and Silverstream...poor Millie

Aw yeah

13 Contains Violence

so descriptive!

Your violent

The violence is awesome. Eyes getting clawed out, bleeding to death while giving birth, being crippled by a car, stomach ripped open, throats slit, getting half your face ripped off by a dog. Yeah, it’s awesome.

14 Evil Cats Have a Reason to Become Evil

Yeah! In Rainbow Magic the goblins were born bad there not even that evil

Tigerstar had a terrible mentor (Thistleclaw)

15 It's About Cats

I want to pet them so badly!


16 Depth

So much work has been put into this series!
So many books, characters, plots,

17 Different Plots

I hate books that have the same plot like Rainbow Magic

Many books besides Warrior Cats just have the same thing: always one hero to save a villain who looks impossible to defeat; magical spells and worlds, or just a plain old peaceful life you can’t understand. I’m not saying EVERY SINGLE book, it’s just that I’ve read books and most of them have one of the above.
In warrior cats, you venture into many life stories and lessons we must accept. Bringing in many different characteristics of each cat has taught me that not everyone uses talents the way I use mine, so shoving them into bright light isn’t the same old boring thing everyone’s seen. I was expecting to see an ending like “and they all lived forever in peace” or some great old ending in one of these books. But turns out, they will never rest in peace. This is a Survival game, not just the regular one, it has many wars and battles. Take the one for StarClan against The Dark Forest (which I mention reluctantly) for example. Warrior Cats was an awesome introduction ...more

18 Multiple Good Plots

Every arc of the series has a prophecy that will be fullfilled by arc’s end. Excluding Power of Three and Omen of the Stars. The first arc was about this kitty pet named Rusty that was prophecized to “save the clans”. By arc’s end, he fulfills the that prophecy and becomes leader of ThunderClan. I’m sorry for they people reading the first arc since that explaination was a spoiler for the first arc. I only needed one example.

19 The Risks

Honestly, it was amazing when Fireheart ( or Firestar ) risked his life to try to save Bluestar!

It makes has more action!

20 The Kits

It makes it so realistic and cute

I like how mischevius it is

21 An Expansive, Interesting Universe
22 Important Lessons

Like love, loyalty, equality... all that stuff? Totally.

23 Still Making New Books
24 Different Character Personalities

There are many different characters, and unlike in other series, they all have there own, unique, personality. Ravenpaw and Graystripe are quite different, so are Leopardstar and Firestar.
