Top 10 Saddest Books in the Warriors Series

The Top Ten
1 Crookedstar's Promise

It's just so sad that his mother never loved him again after he broke his jaw , and she just never tried to accept him for who he was ! (I hate you for that!) I mean who's perfect ? And she just hated him for not being so .And the way his father and Oakheart always loved him ! (He must have been REALLY sad when Oakheart died in the rockslide at Sunningrocks…All the cats he ever loved are dead , and his mother, who never loved him , died because of Mapleshade's ghost told him not to save her. I cried every time his mother's actions told him that she didn't love him and when silverstream died …

2 The Last Hope

The Last Hope is just sad. I found the title kind of humorous because it's like "The New Hope," which is a Star Wars movie. So many cats died! I'm a big Firestar fan, his death was the saddest, and no, I hate Hollyleaf and I liked when she died and I hope she actually went to the Dark Forest. Before I read Sunrise I wouldn't have said any of this. I'm on Fading Echoes, but I know a lot because I watch fact videos. The one death that I'm happy about is Spottedleaf. I am one of the people in the Fandom that hates Spottedleaf so much that I was so glad when they announced that she died for a second time. Firestar's death is so sad! Firestar is my #1 favorite characters, Sandstorm is #2. Spottedleaf is stupid and now she is nothing, she should have been named Nothingleaf, because she's dumb. I call her Nothingleaf, because she is nothing, TAKE THAT NOTHINGLEAF, LOL! Firestar's death was not excusable. I just think this book is sad. - Moonstar of ThunderClan

3 Moth Flight's Vision

This books was one of the sadder books. Micah's death almost made me die, and Moth Flight's experiences in general were pretty sad. And when she gave away her kits, that was also so sad.

I almost cried when she had to give her tiny kits to the other clans!
Blue Whisker, Bubbling Stream, Spider Paw, Honey Pelt... they all seemed so sad..

This is when I cried, when Micah died. It was thrilling to the end, about how Mothflight had to live with it and move on, her mother hovering over her, and every bring else!

4 Yellowfang's Secret

Poor Yellowfang, her mate was horrible!
"I'm having your kits but I can't raise them because I'm a medicine Cat"
"Yay I'm gonna be a fat- oh wait, I hate you now and I'm gonna make your worst enemy my deputy to make you jealous"
Yeah, what the hell?!

The ending when everyone (even Brightheart her mother!) though that Yellowfang had killied the kits where heartbreaking! AND when she had to give up Raggedstar and when she had to give up Brokenkit/her kitting!

Poor Yellowfang. She was exiled by the son she was unable to raise.

5 Bluestar's Prophecy

All of the cats that Bluestar love die! This is so sad. Moonflower (mother), died when she was a 'paw during the WindClan battle, Stormtail (father), died off-book because he deserved it, Snowfur (only sister), died on the Thunderpath when she was a warrior. Sunstar and Pinestar die when she's young. This is one of the saddest books but I feel the the Last Hope sounds sadder. I've read this book once and almost re-read it when we were missing the Omen of the Stars series other than book one and I had to wait - Moonstar of ThunderClan

6 Tallstar's Revenge

Almost everyone he loved died!

7 Sunrise

I was in the middle opf reading time at school and when Hollyleaf was trying to get Leafpool to eat deathberries and when the tunnels crashed down on Hollyleaf. I started bursting into tears. Everyone stared at me like I was weird. It was also sad when at the gathering when Crowfeather said that Leafpool meant nothing to him.

Sunrise gets a record for being the only book that ever made me literally burst into tears and emotionally break down. I cried a lot at Honeyfern's death of some reason. Books have never made me cry and this is the only one. :o

8 Mapleshade’s Vengeance

Saddest book! I'm crying as I write this. I will give you three reasons why it's sad.

1. In the warriors wiki, it's said that Mapleshade loves her kits with all her heart, even more than her own life. And then they drown, last time she sees them, they don't ever reunite!

2. Her mate betrayed her, breaking her poor heart.

3. She grieved and loved her kits SO much that she started hallucinating, as if her mind and soul were also crying.

Don't judge her! Especially in the last hope, even if she did kill Sandstorm, she died anyways in the apprentice quest, literally the next book of the series. Even is Sandstorm was dead, Alderheart would had still made it to the Gourge.
Imagen if you have the most beautiful kittens, and before you know it, they are killed and you never see them again. Of course you would have gone mad! I'm so sorry Mapleshade, you didn't deserve to live in a stupid clan, and have a shattered heart, and family.

9 Ravenpaw's Farewell

The only book that has eve made me cry was this. How dare you make a kuudere cry, Ravenpaw! How dare you die! Ravenpaw x Barley forever...

10 A Dangerous Path

I really don't understand how the darkest hour is more sad than this. BLUESTAR DIED! That was like... the saddest moment or so something...

Not just bluestar died but what about Swiftpaw? Brindleface, and snowkit?

How is A Light in the Mist not on here? This was sad too, though.

I haven't read it but it sounds sad.

The Contenders
11 The Darkest Hour

We all love whitestorm but he had to die. I also highly (more than whitestorm) Cry at the deaths of Stonefur (wow it was sad) and gorsepaw

What about Deadfoot and Runningbrook? Don't forget them, they died because of Tigerstar?

My favorite book, but also the saddest.

12 Forest of Secrets

It was SO! sad when Silverstream died bearing Graystripe's kits and learning about what happened before Fireheart joined the clan was sad.

This was such a sad book, I was sad when Silverstream died, and when Graystripe left to Riverclan and Fireheart was alone.

Silverstream! She should've lived! She would've been an amazing mother...

13 Moonrise

I hated this book because Feathertail died. My friend told me one hundred times that she'd die, and I went as slow as I could, so it would take me a while to get closer to Feathertail's death. When I got to the death scene, I was just like "BUT MY FEATHERXCROW SHIP! NOOO! " my friend thought it was hilarious. When she's on The Last Hope I'll tease her about Hollyleaf's death.

Why did Feathertail gave to die? First Silverstream, now her! She was such a gentle, beautiful, and brave cat.

14 Hawkwing's Journey

The saddest parts are, in my opinion , when Hawkwing's brother died and when Pebbleshine , bearing his kits got carried away on a truck …. (Later revealed that her kits , in The Apprentices Quest , later Twigbranch and Violetshine, survived and were saved and brought back to the clans by Alderpaw and Needlepaw, later Alderheart and Needletail while Pebbleshine , Hawkwing's one and only love , still died when she got struck by a car …..

I cried during this, but I cried during many of the books on this list. Sad, but not the saddest.

15 Path of Stars

Wow. This is the only book in the series that made me cry (but I'm only on a Vision of Shadows, so maybe there will be others.) I was crying so hard when Gray Wing died, he was by far my favorite character in Dawn of the Clans. I just lost and was sobbing for about half an hour after he died. I am a huge bookworm and I've read countless hundreds on books, and this and one other book are the only ones to have made me cry.

Why the heck is this not farther up?!?!? I loved Gray Wing so much. And I cried so hard when he died... *sniff* I'm actually sad thinking about it now. I'm just glad he got a chance to see his family and be happy.

16 Rising Storm

I almost cried when Runningwind died. He was one of my favorite characters and he was a good friend to Fireheart.

The only time I cried in warriors was when Yellowfang died!

Yellowfang was so intelligent, kind, and caring. I was so sad to see her go

17 Fading Echoes

I think this is the one where ivypaw gets jealous and starts in the dark forest. That part was sad.

18 Sunset

Yeah it is not sad but when brambleclaw is being torn in two that is sad.

19 The First Battle

This book was brutal, nowadays battles are not very big deals in the eyes of readers because it's all the same, clan against clan over some dumb reason like a small flimsy strip of land or whatever. But the first one was very different. Most of these cats knew each other, they traveled farther than any cat has before in hope for a better new future, together. They were like kin, but because of the greed and fear of one cat it all came crashing down. Cats murdered friends, group mates, brothers, sisters just because of some land that they did not need. It was horrible and in my opinion the saddest book.

20 The Rise Of The Scourge

How is this not higher on the list? I mean, this tells us the life of the BloodClan leader! His story was sad. His siblings ignored his every move because he was so small. This should be way higher on the list. Although it wasn't his fault, he almost got killed by Tigerpaw. Tigerpaw's mentor, Thistleclaw, told him to do it, and this mistake led to Tigerpaw becoming Tigerstar and causing all sorts of problems and traumatizing moments. Tiny then became Scourge. He wanted revenge on Tigerpaw. Scourge killed many cats, including his siblings (they deserved it...) and Tigerstar. His story is just so sad and depressing. I was kinda sad that he died. But, this should have been higher on the list, in my opinion. Anyways, this just reminds me of my childhood, sad and depressing. I hope you respected my opinion! :3 I'm sorry for taking up any of your time. (I agree with most of this list; it's just my opinion that I feel like this should be higher!)

21 Into the Wild

Well, yes, more deaths, but we didn't know rosetail, or redtail. I don't care abt spottedleaf's death because it really goes around with the series, and her and Firestar's relationship is weird, as she is four years older than him. The only really sad part is when Ravenpaw leaves and Lionheart's death. We didn't even know Rosetail, anyway. Also, what abt the Last Hope? Waaayyyy more deaths than this.

I thought it was sad when Spottedleaf died for some reason and you disagree then I just dunno what your thinking...

22 Squirrelflight's Hope

It's so sad when Leafpool died! And the fact that she wanted to stay in StarClan …..
I literally cried halfway through the book , which means it just won the award of making me cry the longest in all of the books in Warriors !

I hated this book because all Squirrelflight did was whine about how Bramblestar didn't want more kits, and how hard her life is. I did actually sob while reading this though, due to the fact Leafpool dies. She was one of my favorite characters, and she died in the most honorable way, protecting Moonlight's kits, who she didn't even know, and sacrificing herself for them.

23 Dovewing's Silence

It was sad for me because I was reading Dovewing's point of view.

No offense but I hate Dovewing...Kind like I hate Firestar...

24 The Sun Trail
25 Bramblestar's Storm

Poor Dustpelt.. I never really liked him, but..The good thing is that he got to join Ferncloud!

Spoilers ahead
It was really sad when Dustpelt died. It was also sad with Frankie coming from the Twolegplace during the flood. Poor Frankie :(

Bramblepoop broke the warrior code he let Seedpaw die! Bramblepoop is the worst!
