2 The Last Hope

So good to read... the final chapters make you want to cry!

This book is a mix of sad, happiness, and pretty much makes up for the rest the the Omen Of The Stars books (Pretty much rising the suspense for the Dark Forest battle). In this book (SPOILERS! ) we get a good ending to Firestar’s death, and Tigerstar getting killed by him a second time. Firestar died in honor to all the Clans.

Best one so much drama and it perfectly sums up what has happened over the last few books!

So sad but defintely my favorite book! SO many deaths though. Go Jayfeather!

3 Into the Wild

I think that into the wild is the best, because when I came lat to the school year I didn't know what books to read, then my friend (I am not going to say her name! ) showed me a book and I thought that it looked cool because it was about cats. But it was not the first book so she showed me the first book into the wild, and when I finished it, I liked cats even more, and I loved Warriors!

I have 3 Warrior books at home and 1 book to read in class.

The first book is the best because if it were poorly written then you wouldn't read the others, and it had so much info!

I first found this book in a library, and I was getting tired of reading at this time, but something about a cat on the cover of the book really intrigued me, so I checked it out. I did not really think much of the book at first but then when I got deeper I could not stop reading, and this book made me want to read every book in the series. I love a lot other Warriors books but it's this one that got me reading again.

Why is it not first?

4 Forest of Secrets

Dude how is this still #4 this was even better than the darkest hour, and into the wild. It even made me more sad than those two. I mean, I guess that the last hope is good, but this should be at least in #2 place. Even my friend is reading it and she is liking it A LOT she would keep renewing it from the library and she is only on chapter three and she is loving it!

I love this the most. By far the best one

I love this book! One of my all-time favorites! It's very interesting and mysterious, lots of secrets being revealed!

I cried so hard when graystripe said he was leaving

5 Crookedstar's Promise

The best book ever if I had it I would read it 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 times

This is hands down at least the best super edition, but in my opinion one of if not the best Warriors book. It's so sad and other than Tallstar's Revenge was the only one that made me cry. The only reason people like The Darkest Hour and The Last Hope is because they're both mini finales and because everything sorta resolves in the end but although the original series was the best in my opinion The Last Hope was super rushed. And Lionblaze's and Dovewing's narration wants to make me cry from boredom. Crookedstar's Promise features one of the most unfeatured leaders and his sad backstory; it features the hidden side to Riverclan, Mapleshade's twisted mind, and although it was quite rushed, it does kinda go over the features of his life; it kinda has to be.

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 made me cry my butts out

6 Bluestar's Prophecy

Bluestar is like my favorite cat and then like when I saw this I just grabbed it and read it for hours straight

Just finished it and it is very good it was just barely better than firestars quest

Bluestar is sooo great! I love her sweet relationship with Oakheart and how she defended him against thistleclaw!

One of the best books I have ever read. I remember balling my eyes out, smiling at the funny romance scenes between Blue star and Oakheart. Full of emotion, and simply a great book. But crooked stars promise, and Tall stars revenge follow close behind.

7 Midnight

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.

The build up in tension was amazing, and we didn't lose our knowledge of the life of thunderclan, as we got leafpool's perspective. The climax was also amazing

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?

They find out about the destruction of the the clans back in the forest. Midnight is surprisingly a BADGER! - Jewlwhisker_456

8 Sunrise

Definitely the best plot twist within the series. Love this book

This is my favorite warrior book, because the plot is SO interesting! My heart always starts pounding out of my chest when I read this book.

This one was very interesting at the end - CuriousKitten555

Sad sad but so awesome! If you like plot twists then read this

9 Fire and Ice

I love this book it's so good

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.

I just got done reading a forest of secrets, it was good but I think this one is my favorite so far because there was so much going on.

I loved it one of the best books I'm surprised no one commented

10 The Forgotten Warrior

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

I love it so much

The Contenders

11 Firestar's Quest

I liked the adventure in this.

i like it

I love this one! It was basically firestars first quest as a leader!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this one! It is great and I love the romance. You are assured firestar loves sandstorm most and always will.

12 A Dangerous Path

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!

Even know this book was very sad I loved how action packed it was. and there was many good warrior. Fire star became leader. And tigerstar was very smart.

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!

13 Twilight

I loved this book! The entire New Prophecy series is so underrated!

I loved it. It was the first one I read. How it's the first one I read, I have no idea but its has a very beautiful plot line.

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.

This book should be first. It is so my favorite. It is probably the saddest book though.

14 Moonrise

So sad, I cried all night, every night, for the next few weeks, in fact I'm crying now!

I LOVE this book. So sad and exciting. Also great cover art.

So sad when Feathertail dies (that moment proves she was a mary sue)

Personally, I HATED this one.

15 Dark River

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!

This book was amazing! So suspenseful when the tunnels flooded!

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

Ashfur x Scourge.
lol jk its jayfeather x stick - Willowfur

16 Sunset

Okay... the person who said that Bramblestar almost killed Firestar is wrong... DID U EVEN READ THE BOOK?!

So one person on the Sunrise area was confused with this amazing book! Brambleclaw (soon to be Bramblestar) gives up the feeling of hope he had of his half brother to save Firestar!

No. I don't like it because Bramblestar almost kills Firestar

About the bramble claw prophecy, it could have as well have been Thornclaw.

17 Fading Echoes

Oh lord. I don't like this book

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

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 - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

18 Tall Stars Revenge

Loved that the cats actually TALKED to eachother.


I am actually enraged that moonrise is above this. Moonrise was horrible and predictable!

This book is one my favorite out of the entire series, I would stay late just to see what happened next!

19 Night Whispers

Love this one! Flametail's point of view, the feeling of impending doom, foreshadowing, and more! They took the exciting end of "The Fourth Apprentice", and made that feeling go throughout the entirety of "Night Whispers". My favorite line from the series other than Frireheart's speech at the end of "Into the Wild" is from this book. "JayFeather gasped as the star clan cats froze over and shattered. All he could see before he woke up was the moon pool, as it shimmered softly in the cold, dead moon light."

So much suspense and foreshadowing in this one! You can practically feel ominous clouds over the clans. Dovewing and Ivypool have a big fight. (Very dramatic) and Flametail. Loved him. So sad when he died!

Best book ever. I think it had a great storyline (live every other book in the series) and I may just be biased because I love Flametail, but I love love love this book!

Well it was boring I looked through it it's just all they do is say I love tiger heart she trains in the dark forest like dude

20 Skyclan's Destiny

It was really sad how the warriors judged the daylight warriors

Amazing book. It's fun to laugh at all of Leafstars horribly-chosen names and cry about what happened to SkyClan in the past. It has the perfect amount of drama and battles to keep me satisfied.

If you hated this, you're going to LOVE the fact that yet another SkyClan book is coming out this year! Yay... - RiverClanRocks

21 The Blazing Star

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

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

I just finished reading today!

Amazing! I just love how Clear Sky tried to defeat One Eye practically by himself, and he survived ( but one eye did not 😸)

22 Warrior's Super Edition: Yellowfangs Secret.

This is one of my favorite Warriors books! I cried from start to end :) HOW IS THIS BOOK #25!?

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

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)

23 The Fourth Apprentice

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!

Dovewing is really bad but I love ivypool

I loved this book so much but when rippletail died I put my hand over my mouth and I was like what the heck lol but I still loved how dovepaw saved tigerheart she's just and apprentice and she saved a cats life #dovepaw for the win lol

Good thought I hate dove wing
She treated ivy pool so bad

24 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

Anyone watch the trailer for this? because if so...”we are WARRIORS! ” (This phrase is even better then the books themselves) - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

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!

27 The Sight

One thing to say about this books. Fun day. The cats totally have a fair type thing with all clans. Contests, food. I can just imagine TigerStar seeing this and having some angry reaction to the clans getting along like this. Lol

This was actually the first I read from Warriors, I like be the development and the different ranks between characters and being able to start warriors with a kits point of view with a power was so interesting!

There’s another cover for the sight and it has Jayfeather on the front. I PRAISE the Erin’s for putting a blind cat on the cover of a boom called the sight! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

I knew jay kit would be blind but it totally surprised me when he was born with it

28 Starlight

The is the best book because there is romance action adventure rebellion and it is my first Erin Hunter book I ever read.

One of the most emotional Warriors books made, along with Yellowfang's Secret. - Blubbydubber1

I love this book. I read the whole thing yesterday. It's really good! - kittywarrior107

29 Rising Storm

This was the first warrior book I read

This one is amazing my favorite in the first series and has a big cliffhanger at the end.

Yellowfang was grumpy at the start but once I saw he nice side she was amazing and I wish she never died I was crying because of her death I hate when loveable cats died :..(. But there a a bunch of loveable cats still live.

Comment I if you have read all the books. I

30 Path of Stars

Best. Book. Ever. I love this book so much! Just finished reading. RIP Gray wing

Graywing will be missed - Danidragonite

The best book ever created I don’t like how all of the dawn of the clans books are pushed back on this list in my opinion best series besides vision of shadows

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

31 Eclipse

This is the best warriors in the 3rd series I like it a lot because of lionblaze

and out of the 30 Erin Hunter ( mostly warriors) books I’ve read this is my fourth favorite

Thunder and shadow team up! Only a derp moon could do that!

32 Bramblestar's Storm

This book is very good, and I like that it captures the legacy laid before it by recognizing the past story arcs that came before it. I like how Bramblestar creates a new warrior code rule in honor of Firestar, and the ending manga makes me cry. It is so sad to see the hurt of Squirrelflight, and so joyous once she and Bramblestar learns they will be biological parents. I didn't always approve of them as a couple, but after this I support them full heartedly.

Very good, very sad

WHY! It should be at least the third best! But it is my favorite.

I Loved it! I'm happy that the Erins decided to let one of the older characters go and I cried three times while reading that book, which makes me feel bad because I only cried twice in the last hope...

33 Hollyleaf's Story

I liked how it showed Fallen Leaves life and I guess Holly Leaf, stupid cat, but anyways it was very interesting living in the shadows of the clan life!

It's good to get a part in Hollyleaf's world. - Jetmaster

34 The First Battle

Dawn of the Clans is the best series of warriors in my opinion and narrowly beets Forest of Secrets and Path of Stars (and a few others) for the best book. So emotional and the relationship between Grey Wing and Turtle Tail was well developed even further.

Love this book! Lots of drama and Thunder is awesome! But I don't see why no one wanted him back!

One of the hardest battles I had to read, should be in the top 10 for sure.

Why is this not one of the top ten I loved it.

35 Shattered Sky

It is the third book in the A Vision Of Shadows series, the newest one, and the one after is the Darkest Night and then we're waiting on River Of Fire which is expected on April Tenth, 2018 then the last one in November 2018 - Swiftdawn

I just read this book and it was very, very good. I just couldn't stop reading. You should definitely read this series and this book. IT WAS so GOOD! - BillyBobJoe

For sure a top 10 book of the whole series. The only books I liked better were
Bluestar’s Prophecy
Into the Wild
The Darkest Hour
The last Hope

Never heard of this book, is it a part of the Dawn of the Clans series? I don't remember any of the titles of that series.

36 Secrets of the Clans

I first saw this book in the library, and since I loved the Warriors series I obviously wanted to know some secrets from the clans, and I was not disappointed. Great book(but could improve some of the stories.

37 The Sun Trail

The only bad thing about this is Clear Sky - RoseWeasley

Amazing! - Danidragonite

It's so amazing! I love all of the tribe/ancient names and the journey itself. Some of the relationships felt a little weak to me, but others felt so genuine. The journey itself easily makes this my #1, and every other part of the book only adds to that.

I love this book so much! It is a beginning of an era for Warrior Cats. I love the romance and a lot of characters die in it making it super interesting

38 Warrior's Super Edition: SkyClan's Destiny

YEAH DUDES - Presidentofpotatoes

This one was already done!

39 Dovewing's Silence

BORING - Presidentofpotatoes

I found this book to not be very interesting but more like a better ending to Omen of the Stars as I feel the Last Hope didn't end very well.

I found this really boring

A bit too boring

40 Yellowfang's Secret

This books already done

Ha! It says,"badger-stinky" in this book!


I think this book is the best. it should be first place! I just wish that Yellowfang had stayed with Raggedpelt. I read it in one day, unable to put it down. everyone should read it!

41 The Rise of Scourge

Not just the best warrior cat book the best book ever! ( I love tiny

This isn't a book, it's manga (even though it doesn't have anything with real manga anything close).-.

42 Thunder Rising

No WAY! I love thunder rising! I'm rereading it and oh my starclan IT IS GREAT! It should be at lest 6th!
Favourite character: turtle tail

This one was very good out of the 31 Erin Hunter books I’ve read this is my 9th favorite this and the sun trail are the only 2 dawn of the clans books I’ve read so far! -lit llama

43 Mothflight's Vision

I think it's the best to be made. Like seriously, this book is NUMBER #1 on my favorite books.

Ok, so I had just read this book causing me to cry in the middle of my Chinese class because poor Micha but also I feel like the ending where (Spoilers! ) Moth flight gives away her children. Also, Moth flight is spelled like this because I mean, look at the book. there is a space between the words Moth and flight. it was rushed a the end and lost a bit of the emotion for me but other than that it was one of my favorite books!

The best Warriors book to ever be published! That's why it's my only one! ~ drizzle

Such as powerful story. It really makes you feel as if you live in the forest with the Clan cats.

V 5 Comments
44 Dawn

Well, it does have the best warrior cat on the cover. (It's Squirrelflight peeps! )

This book has some of the most descriptive writing out of the whole series in my opinion. The stakes are high as the forest is literally being uprooted by Twolegs and the Clans follow the will of StarClan into the unknown in search of a new territory.

I like it because it has the Great Journey!

Maybe I should have voted for this instead of Firestar's Quest!

45 Sign of the Moon

Really good. Tribe of Potatoes! - Presidentofpotatoes

46 Hawkwing's Journey

This is a great/dramatic book I almost read shivering it was as if something was cursing them *spoiler* I almost died hearing the clan split up and never to see each other again curse you dark tail curse you!

This is probably one of the best books in warriors for me. Literally half the clan dies

It was a really good book! though, Hawkwing and Hawkfrost? I mean, don't name 2 main characters with the same prefix... It's just weird

I don't think Pebbleshine died. I mean if she did wouldn't they see her in their dreams? :3 Fox the Rogue

47 Cats of the Clans

I loved this book to read more about the cats.My advice is that read the books first there are some spoilers! ❤

48 Crowfeather's Trial

Got this the day it came out, and I haven’t stopped looking back at it. Seeing Crowfeather try to understand Breezepelt is a joy.

49 Codes of the Clans

EPIC - Presidentofpotatoes

This book will always hold a special place in my heart
