Top Ten Warriors Books

The Top Ten

1 The Darkest Hour The Darkest Hour Product Image

This was pretty good, with all the climax building up to this point and I liked the plot twist villain at the end. I also loved Firestar getting his lives, that was very cool, and I found Tigerstar's death hilarious. Defeated by a cat twenty time's smaller than him, nice!

Its amazing! I was pretty angery that Firestar and Tigerstar had built up this whole enemies thing, eventually there both leaders and they go into battle...
Then a dude that had no charecter built up comes and rips nine lives out of him. That was upsetting for me and my friends, because it made no sense. Other than that, I love this book! It's so sad that Whistestorm died. He was a great warrior and dies before a moon of being the deputy. Bone is the worst!

Not quite as good as the Last Hope, but epic all the same! I love how Scourge kills Tigerstar, and how Scourge and Firestar are half-brothers. Great job to the Erins with this one!

What everyone has been waiting for. The awesome battle, Firestar loses one of his lives...Scourge dies...the Warrior clans are safe.

2 The Last Hope The Last Hope Product Image

People say that the Darkest Hour is what everyone was waiting for but really, it was all building up to this awesome climax! So much action, so much struggle and the aftermath where Firestar dies is just amazing! (Don't get me wrong, I like Firestar but you have to admit that this was an amazing conclusion)! The idea of a battle between living and dead cats is unreal! Also, I do love the quote "There are no true borders except between day and night, life and death, hope and loss. The only thing wrong with this book was the death of Hollyleaf! R.I.P. Hollyleaf! May your soul walk the stars forever!


Dude this was soooo good. I loved the tension between the Clans, StarClan, and the Dark Forest, the Three finally doing something with their time, and the final battle! The Great Battle was really good because it actually gave me the feels. Even though I hate dovewing, I think that it was cool to view Firestar's death from a useless cat's point of view.

I just love this story because Ivypool gets shown up as the star she is and Firestar is the superhero, like he always was. And Ivypool.
And whoever that was who was happy that Firestar died and said that TIGERSTAR was his/her favorite character, just ugh, get out of my sight.
- #SagepetlaWarriorsFan

Honestly this was the best series-ender because after that the dangers were just meh. Like 1#- Scourge almost takes over, #2, hawkfrost almost takes over, #3, no ending, because combined with #4, and #4, HOORAY! You get all the baddies AGAIN! But then #5? Like, a buncha rogues. Seriously.

3 Into the Wild Into the Wild Product Image

Ah, yes. Where it all began. I loved rereading Rusty going into the forest, getting almost beat by Graypaw and Longtail, and I loved Ravenpaw's character. It was very interesting, along with different side stories and tons of plot twists and whatnot. Great book, and if I could rate it from 1-5 stars, I'd give it six.

The first original book. This is the book I started reading first, and I'll forget it last. It inspired me, taught me many morals, and guided into the WarriorS series.

I think That into the wild is the best book because it's the first book. And its how the saga begins. I love how rusty (Firepaw,Fireheart,and Firestar) makes friends with Graypaw (Graystripe) and Ravenpaw. I just love it.
- Firestorm101

IN my opinion, the first series is the best. The rest, all though important, isn't as good as the first. Here's a chart.

The Prophecies Begin:
5% Forbidden Relationships
25% Deaths
80% Awesome dramatic climax including Firestar!
10% Trying to figure out a prophecy

Something about the first series is that I get a nostalgic feeling, and there's just something about it that no other series has.

The New Prophecy:
50% Forbidden Relationships
30% Trying to figure out prophecies
1% Firestar
10% Main climax

Good, but the first series was like one big exciting book split up into little ones, but this one doesn't focus on the main climax enough. Firestar knew what the problem was, and had to find out how to solve it... The rest is too "Something dangerous is coming! "

Power of Three:
70% Trying to figure out prophecies
15% StarClan! What's going on?
15% We powerful!

The first five books of ...more

4 Forest of Secrets Forest of Secrets Product Image

One of my favourite books (my 4th favourite) It was so sad when Silverstream died though. Featherkit and Stormkit (now dead Feathertail and Stormfur. I am up to Outcast, PoT.)

I really enjoyed this book because there are a lot of secrets to find out, as well is plot twists, and its just really fun to read.

~ Owlwhisper

Dramatic, suspenseful, and amazing! Four of my favorite scenes from the Prophecies begin are in this book: Fireheart realizing that Mistyfoot and Stonefur are Bluestar's kits, Silverstream's death and kitting, Brokenstar's death and Tigerclaw's exile. This book is GOOD. Like, REALLY GOOD! Like, BETTER THAN THE DARKEST HOUR GOOD!

This was the first warrior cats book I have ever read, Because while I was looking for just grace in my library, I stumbled across warriors, forest of secrets, and I read the full thing, then I started reading them more and more.
It tells about yellowfang, bluestar, and silverstream and about these 3 shecats' kits. It also shows tigerstar's exilment and Graystripes separation with thunderclan, It also shows us when Fireheart and Graystripe fed riverclan, This was mentioned by an elder telling squirrelpaw tales about Graystripe and Firestar being caught feeding Riverclan.

5 Crookedstar's Promise Crookedstar's Promise Product Image

This book was extremely depressing, but I still liked to hear about Crookedstar's sad life. The issues with Rainflower mistreating him, getting his jaw broken, his name being changed, how he listened to Mapleshade when she told him he could achieve his dreams of being RiverClan leader, when really he had to make terrible sacrifices, and his love for Willowbreeze, just makes for an amazing book.

~ Owlwhisper

Honestly, I think Crookedstar's Promise could be first in the top 10 saddest! Crookedstar is wrongly mistreated by his annoying mother, Rainflower. He's been cast aside by her almost all his life. Then he meets Mapleshade, and he believes everything will be okay. But it's not okay! Mapleshade makes everybody he loves die. But in the end, in the manga excerpt, it's so sad, because Crookedstar is so brave. He says: "I may not have any loved ones anymore, but I have my clan, which I will take care of for the many moons to come." Crookedstar is a strong and brave leader who, like Mapleshade instructed him to, casts his own problems out of the way of his clan, but takes the time to satisfy his own small requests.

This book is amazing! It was awesome. The biggest reason why I enjoy it was because I love mapleshade and she appears like 1/3 of the book.

Poor Crookedstar! This book tells the tragic story of Crookedstar and Maplesade in such a heart-wrenching yet beautiful tale. The best super edition HANDS-DOWN!

6 Bluestar's Prophecy Bluestar's Prophecy Product Image

It can be a little sad but it tells ALL ABOUT BLUESTAR/FUR Who is one of the best leaders ever! Winig to give up her kits?!? That takes a lot to do!

dis book good. It makes a reason bluestar is such a good character! the trauma and heartbreak led to bluestar being amazing! (I relate to her, not the deaths but I kinda blame myself for everything and my brain told me to be perfect or else)

Quoting the book:
Whitekit: "where's snowfur? is she playing hide and seek?"
Bluefur: "no, little one."
Whitekit: "when is she coming back?"
Bluefur: "never. she's never coming back."
Whitekit:"why not? doesn't she still love me?"
Bluefur: "oh whitekit, she loves you very much, but she walks with starclan now"
Whitekit:"can I go visit her?"
Bluefur: "no, I'm sorry"
Whitekit: "but goosefeather and featherwhisker do it all the time!"
Bluefur: "they're medicine cats, whitekit. I'm sorry, snowfur is dead."
Robinwing: "come, little one, I'll get you a nest and some milk."
Whitekit: "I don't want your milk! I don't want your nest! I want snowfur!"
R.I.P., Snowfur!


This was the book that just made me hate Bluestar more. How could the two books I HATE be so high on this list? Bluestar was mopey, whiny kit in this book. Also, why'd she give her kits away? We've seen Sorreltail and Squirrelflight give their kits for someone else to care for. Oh, yeah, I forgot-there's no Mistyfoot or Stonefur in ThunderClan. That's the problem with making the character's backstory before you actually make a complete structure for the book. Villainizing Thistleclaw was the wrong path to go. Ugh, this book just made me want to either cry or rip my hair out.

7 Fire and Ice Fire and Ice Product Image

In second grade, I was looking in the library for a book. I saw the very first book in warriors and decided to read it. I then got so hooked into it. After I was finished, I searched everywhere in my classroom library for this book because I thought I saw it there before. I then even started to look through my classmates cubbies to see if they are reading it and one of them was. I was too shy to ask them if I could read the book(that person who was reading that book is now my bff) and I started to read forest of secrets. My birthday was coming up very soon so I saw this as a good opportunity to get this book. I then got the whole first set for my birthday. I loved this book so much! I loved Graystripe, Firestar, and Swiftpaw! As years passed by I am soooo close to being up to date on the books! Does anyone know if the books are supposed to end? I hope not soon. The first series will always be my favorite. No offense but I never liked the 4th series. I mean I feel like it’s just all ...more

This book excels with character arcs and relationships. The mixed allegiances between clan and family, and friendship and romance all make for a very complex and emotional depth in the story. Despite it being considered middle grade fiction, this book has character development that far exceeds many YA fiction stories.

This book is so intresting! It is the first book I read and I Pretended it was a play And pretended I was Bluestar and my other friends were other cats to make it funner! I balled my eyes out when CinderPaw got hurt. And was mad when it ended with a clip hanger!

This was the first book I read, I hadn't realized that it belonged to a series when I picked it up, and I fell in love with it. It not only introduced my favorite character, Cinderpelt, but it also introduced me to the series as a whole. For that it will always have a special place in my heart.

8 Midnight Midnight Product Image

I love seeing from Brambleclaw's perspective, he is so interesting. And not evil (as a warrior). Squirrelpaw is so cute with Brambleclaw!

I have read book one and two of warriors the new prophecy and have a book report book choice due next week. Which book of the second sereis should I do? If you could respond immediatly then I could start reading the 3rd book.

I did not think that this book was a very start to the Warriors series 2, I liked the sun drown aspect of the book but everything else wasn't the best.

Midnight was my least favorite warrior book it did not suck nether was it good I mean like it was just a classic how is this up here?

9 Sunrise Sunrise Product Image

I didn’t really like this book. I loved Hollyleaf, she was cute and an adorable apprentice. But this was the book that made me dislike her. I never forgave her completely for all she did. What she did was totally uncalled for. This book just made me hate her... I don't know

I mean, I liked the book, it was very dramatic and all, and we get to find out who Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Hollyleaf's reall parents are but... it made me dislike Hollyleaf. She was so cute and nice when she was an apprentice, but telling your own mother to eat deathberries, and literally committing suicide, AND KILLING ASHFUR... LIKE YOU NEED TO CHILL OUTTTT

~ Owlwhisper

I loved the action and I cried so much when honeyfern died that was so sad and it was pretty entertaining reading the good she-cat go bad **only people who have read this book understand what I mean**

Best book in the serie. Sad, has good plot-twist, and the last chapters are still my favorite moment in literature years later.

10 The Forgotten Warrior The Forgotten Warrior Product Image

This one was great! Hollyleaf came back, Cinderheart finds out the truth... Sol is nearly killed by Hollyleaf. (Nice if Sol died, but I understand why Hollyleaf didn't - no, couldn't kill him)

I love this book. This was the book that got me to change my opinion on Hollyleaf. I hated her before reading this, but after I did, I loved Hollyleaf.

Like, the best book ever! Loved that Hollyleaf came back. It was awesome when Hollyleaf nearly kills Sol

I'm so glad that Hollyleaf is alive! I wish that she had killed Sol though.

The Contenders

11 A Dangerous Path A Dangerous Path Product Image

I loved the plot with this one. The dogs were such a great idea from the Erins! And Bluestar's death was so honourable... I loved how Oakheart was telling her how to swim and to come back up to the surface!

Loved this book probably one of the best books of the first series.I was reading this book in the basement and when I finished it I came up stairs crying because BlueStar died

This is no doubt one of my favorites. It was so action-packed and fun to read. The dog pack had you standing on edge, the love between Brightheart (Lostface at the time) and Cloudtail is so adorable, and just the feel of it makes you anxious!

Remember everyone- pack, pack, kill kill!

I love all the Warrior books, but this one got my heart beating. I read all the others like five times, and I read this one eight times! I recommend it to anyone who likes action packed adventures. I just love it!

12 Firestar's Quest Firestar's Quest Product Image

I actually liked it more than I thought! Firestar is the best. although the beginning was average, it got pretty climactic! -Brightrose05

This is a very long book and I read this in sections. It wasn't exactly a page turner and I was struggling through until they reached sky clan. It was very emotional and I loved this book but only for the part when they reached sky clan.
Sorry Erin

This was a great book! I love the romance. The way he (Firestar) put the clan together was very interesting. I greatly enjoyed this book, and hope you all will/have, too!

This one was my fave for some reason.

I think these are the reasons..

Firestar proves that he loves Sandstorm, and crushes the dreams of SpottedXFire shippers


An adventure!

It shows you how to form a long lost Clan.


It's Warriors.


13 Sunset Sunset Product Image

(SPOILERS) nice to see how they rebuilt the camp after the badgers attacked, cool to meet Daisy, I felt bad for Berrykit when his tail got caught in the fox trap, see Cloudtail and Brightheart’s relationship struggle bc of Daisy, see Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight make up, AND watch Firestar nearly get killed by Hawkfrost and (apparently) Ashfur and having Brambleclaw kill Hawkfrost, his own half-brother! Oh! Almost forgot to mention Brambleclaw training in the dark forest with Tigerstar and Hawkfrost and watching Brambleclaw betray his father’s evil ambitions! also good job Brambleclaw for becoming deputy wow I kinda gave a summary of the main events in the book whoops lol! -Brightrose05

Okay, the start was sad. Cinderpelt was my favourite character. But the good news is Sootfur is dead! I hated him! (No reason...) Brambleclaw is really annoying in this one but, it is so action-packed.

I just finished reading this one and it's one of the best of the new prophecy. I loved when LeafPool discovered the meaning of the prophecy, before there is peace, blood will spill blood and the lake will run red. Love it so much.

I come from sweden and I LOVE the bok. The book has not so long ago being translated to Swedish and I love when brambelclaw saved fire star even when his brother and father was behind him and said KILL HIM

14 Warrior's Super Edition: Yellowfangs Secret. Warrior's Super Edition: Yellowfangs Secret. Product Image

IT WAS SO GOOD TO LEARN HOW AND WHY YELLOWFANG BECAME A MEDICINE CAT! I was always curious why she did what she did, and I find it cool how she had “powers”.

A super edition on my favorite female character that goes into depth on her relation to Brokenstar and why she was exiled from ShadowClan. You should definitely read this if you are in the part of The Prophecies Begin arc where she reveals her past.

This book was the BEST! It made me cry and also made me smile and it was just so realistic compared to all the others I've read (though most of them were)

Why is this #26? This book was full of drama from start to end. Without this Yellowfangs backstory would never be told. Definitely my favorite even though it has many sad chapters. Definitely my #1! OwO

15 Dark River Dark River Product Image

This was one of my favourites when I read it, it was second warrior book I ever read. I loved the introduction to the tunnels near the lake and the history of Fallen Leaves and Rock! Also exploring more of The Power Of Three's life!

Actually I didn't like this that much just the fact there was no drama and it was boring
Glad it wasn't yet another journey to stupid mountains again!

This book literally made me cry, mainly for Fallen Leaves death. I seriously recommend reading Warriors.

This book is the introduction of the best ship in the Warriors series...

Ashfur x Scourge.
lol jk its jayfeather x stick

16 The Blazing Star The Blazing Star Product Image

Ugh! I like the plot and EVERYTHING about this book except for star flower. I really don't like her.

This is the second best warriors book and book in general I've ever read

Dawn of the clans is the most amazing warrior cats series.

I love this book! I finished Reading it a couple days ago!

17 Twilight Twilight Product Image

I am a MASSIVE Leafpool x Crowfeather shipper. Crowfeather was never happy with Nightcloud and the fact that they have three kits is so adorable. Crowfeather (after Cinderpelt and Feathertail AND Silverstream AND Yellowfang died) is my favourite character.

How could this one be in 27th place? I love this book, it's the best book EVER! It's so emotional, every time I read it I always cry a lot, especially after chapter 17. That chapter is absolutely mind blowing. I cried even harder than I did when Cinderpelt died in chapter 23! I don't know if it was because of what Spottedleaf said ("Deep down inside, you know what is right. You must follow your heart."), what Crowfeather said ("I'll do whatever I can to make sure you won't regret this. I'll take care of you."), or what Leafpool said ("Once, being a medicine cat was where my heart led me, but Cinderpelt is young and healthy, she'll be able to train another apprentice after I've gone.") It's just so emotional and exhausting. Just the way I like it.

The first 15 Chapters were really boring and I just wanted to get it over and done with. Until LeafPool and CrowFeather sab away that's when it started to get interesting.

This book was very interesting with all the quarreling and heartbreak going on I loved it! This is my favorite book in the new prophecy!

18 Path of Stars Path of Stars Product Image

One of the best warriors books ever. With one of my favorite characters. WHY did if have to be Gray Wing that died! I didn't think I would ever be the same again.("sniff"). An amazing book.

I cried so much when Graywing dies. He told his kits to be good and stuff like that and then his kits were like, it sounds like you are saying good bye! Graywing: I am. Noooooo! RIP Graywing I will miss you!

This one is the best becuase it's the last book in the Beginning of the Clans. I just think it brings out a lot, and there are very tragic parts! (Sniff Sniff). Gray Wing was one of my favorite charctors, and THE BEST LEADER EVER! He never actually came to be one of the leaders or else there would be a GrayClan, but Gray Wing ever since was known to be Gray WIng the Wise. He is tought to every cat mostly, especially in Windclan. Those agule cats were the greatests ancestors of Gray Wing the Wise.

I loved all of the books in this series, but this was my favorite. I love that Gray Wing finally gets his own family and I also loved the way his death was written and the fact that it was in his point of view

19 Moonrise Moonrise Product Image

I love how the Tribe is featured for the first time, and Feathertail's death is so sad! It's so sweet how Crowfeather named himself after her! Quoting the book:
Feathertail: "Think you have nine lives, do you? I saved you once, don't make me save you again."
Crowpaw: "No! Feathertail! Dn't leave me! Please!"
Saddest Warrior Cat Death of ALL TIME!
Goodbye, Feathertail. May you find swift running, good hunting, and shelter when you sleep. May starClan light your path for the rest of your days!

I didn't like that the mountain cats treated Stormfur way better than the other traveling cats, when Feathertail was the REAL silver cat, and she died RIGHT when she was starting to be my favorite character, I liked the mountain cats though( Not because they treated Stormfur better than the other traveling cats.), Their camp is so cool! It's also pretty cool that they hunt hawks.

loved their journey back to The Clans and the Tribe is so freakin cool! (SPOILERS) Feathertail’s death was extremely depressing (for me at least) because I loved her! poor Greystripe and Crowfeather too. So sweet Crowfeather named his warrior name after her -Brightrose05

This book was good! I loved the story and all but I got really sad when Feathertail dies when Squirrleflight, Brambleclaw, Stormfur, Crowfeather and tawnypelt tried to get rid of sharptooth

20 Shattered Sky Shattered Sky Product Image

This one was amazing and honestly my third favorite warriors book the first two being last hope and path of stars. The first one had a good adventure and the second one showed us how evil dark tail is but I really like this one because it’s the first time we got a war around the lake and oh yes it is a war. I hope the 4th one is good.

stupid darktail! I love twig and violet so much! I FELT violetpaw when needletail was killed! Why is this book not higher? I love climatic books!

The ruthflessness of Darktail to how he treats his prisoners to how the book shapes up is really well. This book surprises you in how cruel could one cat be? And OneStar is heavily involved in this book, and I was very surprised right before the end of his reasoning of why he wasn’t fighting Darktail. One of the best books in the whole series

This is one of the only books where I cried. I wish that Shadepelt, Foxnose, Petalfur, Herronwing, Pinenose, and Max did not die in that battle.

21 Fading Echoes Fading Echoes Product Image

This is where Ivypo- PAW and Dove...PAW's relationship starts to slowly break apart!

Oh lord. I don't like this book

In this book, Ivypaw/pool and Dovepaw/wing's relationship gets damaged

I definitely prefer Ivypaw/pool to Dovepaw/wing. Dovepaw/wing is alright but a total Mary Sue.
Anywho, I liked this book because it had Dovepaw and Ivypaw’s relationship end and Ivypaw in the dark forest

22 Eclipse Eclipse Product Image

I loved how all the clans fought for the sake of Thunder Clan. And they just stop when the sun dissapears. I love that they don't know what it is.

This is so good! Why I still it 32?! Eclipse is so suspenseful and I can't believe that Erin finally made shadowclan good! I finished it in one day

This was also really cool! The power of three books are so low. I loved Power Of three.

Dang. The battle was epic. That's the only reason I voted for this really

23 Warriors: The Ultimate Guide

Came out on November 5th, 2013. Complete insight into the whole world of the Warriors! Detailed pictures and descriptions of 75 important cats/animals in the "serieses", information about everything you want to know, and contains never-before heard of short stories detailing Bramblestar and Tigerstar's leader ceremonies. AWESOME I LOVE WARRIORS TO DEATH

Why is cats of the clans rated higher? Its just an Intended version of that

Warriors is the best book series I ever read I would give it a 10 out of 10. Meow!

I think it was cool to go back and meet all the cats all over again.

24 Long Shadows

This is like the best actual book. SPOILER ALERT! This book is the one that the three learn that their mother isn’t Squirrelflught and Ashfur becomes a murderer

Hollyleaf... who is so evil murders Ashfur.
I like the plot and Sol. Also Furled Bracken, Stone Song, Dark Whisker, and Half Moon make debuts. Jaypaw becomes Jayfeather

By far the best I shook me to the core
although kind if ruined by the existence of the last hope

I hate the fire and that they aren't squrrilflights kits wow I cried ten minutes

25 The Fourth Apprentice The Fourth Apprentice Product Image

Many people hate this book. I thought it was cool! Honestly I don’t hate any warrior cats books (other than Sunrise) I really like Dovewing.

I loved the tension of this book, especially at the beginning, when Lionblaze and Jayfeather were testing Dovepaw to see if she was part of the three. When he said that she didn't want to, I thought, tough, you'll do it to save ThunderClan, and the forest!

Ivypool sucks. I like Dovewing a lot better.

Dovewing is really bad but I love ivypool
