Detailed plot description
This book contains two field guides put into one, Secrets of the Clans and Code of the Clans. Secrets of the Clans contains information not revealed in the main series - such as stories narrated by certain cats and secret information about the Clans. The field guide begins with a story about the dawn of the Clans, and how the Clans were created. This is followed by a chapter containing the rules of the warrior code.
Various ceremonies appear next and cats give stories about their experiences, like Crowfeather's love for Leafpool or the escape from BloodClan by Barley. Fighting techniques, medicine descriptions and herbs, ancient myths about the three Great Clans that once roamed the forest, information about cats outside of Clans including BloodClan and the Tribe of Rushing Water, and short stories told by secondary characters are also included.
Code of the Clans begins after Secrets of the Clans, and the same as the first field guide, it has no plot, but describes the warriors world in great detail; mostly about things relating to the warrior code, and speaks about how and why the laws in the warrior code were created, and sometimes includes a special short story revolving around that rule and and how it was broken.
It also includes stories about the ancient ThunderClan, RiverClan, WindClan, ShadowClan, and SkyClan and how they and why they added rules to the warrior code. Some stories include Cloudberry and Ryewhisker, the earliest case of forbidden love, and the story of Mothpelt, who was appointed leader after his father's death.
There are also short stories in which characters talk on topics close to them, such as Sandstorm confessing and talking about her love for the ThunderClan leader Firestar, Tallstar explaining his sudden choice for Onewhisker as the new deputy just prior his death, and Whitestorm teaching border techniques to apprentices of his Clan. Squirrelflight also gives the reader tips on how to act at their warrior vigil.
Enter the Clans comes with a bookmark for the new Erin Hunter series, Survivors. It also has teasers for Survivors and Yellowfang's Secret.
