The Warriors series features groups of spiritual cats called "Clans" living in the wild, following the warrior code, and honoring their ancestors.

Warriors is a series of several books, organized into multiple arcs, featuring the adventures of feral cats living in self-supporting groups called Clans in the forest—ThunderClan, ShadowClan, RiverClan, and WindClan. Later the fifth Clan, SkyClan, is introduced. The Clan cats mark their borders, defend their land from enemy Clans, adhere to the warrior code—a set of rules each Clan cat must follow—and train their young to survive in the forest. The believe the spirits of their dead reside in StarClan, who send prophecies and signs to guide their living descendants. Each series follows one to four point of view characters as they struggle to grow up and survive the dangers that threaten them from all sides.

The series was first released in 2003 and is created by Working Partners and Coolabi[1] and are published by HarperCollins[2] under the pen name Erin Hunter. Kate Cary[3] and Cherith Baldry[4] are the primary ghost writers, with Victoria Holmes formerly editing the overarching plot, and she,[5] Tui Sutherland,[6] and Clarissa Hutton[7] working on supplementary material. As of January 2019, over 40 million books have been sold[8] and the series has been translated into 27 languages.[9]The series is also a New York Times Bestseller, with The Silent Thaw and River notably recent books hitting that list.[10][11]

Main storyline

The Dawn of the Clans arc

This is the fifth arc of Warriors. The series revolves around the time prior to and of the origin of the five Clans, and explains how they came to be. During this arc, several cats journey away from the mountains and into the forest in hopes of a more suitable home. Clear Sky, Gray Wing, and Thunder are the main protagonists. This arc also marked the beginning of the new editorial team[blog 1], and Vicky has stated on her Facebook page that she is not involved with Dawn of the Clans, aside from book one, The Sun Trail.[12] This arc also features bonus chapters exclusive to Barnes and Noble Warriors books.

The original Dawn of the Clans covers, originally released from 2013 to 2015.

The Sun Trail

"We trust the Teller of the Pointed Stones to know where our future lies. We will follow the path of the rising sun, but we will always carry the mountains, and all of you, in our hearts."
―Shaded Moss The Sun Trail, page 38
The first book in the Dawn of the Clans series takes readers back to the earliest days of the Clans, when the cats first settled in the forest and began to forge the warrior code. Long before Firestar left his kittypet home to join ThunderClan, a band of cats from the mountains set off on a dangerous journey in search of a new home...[13]

Thunder Rising

"You will make things right. When the time comes, I know you will..."
―Storm to Thunder Thunder Rising, page 4
The mountain cats from the Tribe of Rushing Water followed the sun trail to a new territory, convinced that in a land with more prey, their lives would be free from strife. But while no cat has gone hungry, tensions are rising. The once firmly united group has split in two—and a young cat named Thunder is caught in the middle.[14]

The First Battle

"Who would I have helped? This battle was not mine. Why did you leave the mountains? Did you need something to fight over so badly? Before you came, we hunted and slept and lay in the sun. We fought over prey, but no cat ever killed another. You brought death here."
―River Ripple to Clear Sky The First Battle, page 275
The rivalry between Gray Wing and Clear Sky has driven a bitter wedge between the forest cats. As Thunder and Gray Wing struggle to find a peaceful path for the future, tensions are growing. What began as a misunderstanding between two brothers has spread far and wide—and now every mountain cat, rogue, and kittypet in the forest will be forced to pick a side.[15]

The Blazing Star

"Yes, the Blazing Star. To survive, you must grow and spread like the Blazing Star."
―Bright Stream The Blazing Star (book), page 35
The first battle has ended, and each group has agreed to a truce. But merely keeping the peace may not guarantee their survival. When a deadly disease threatens to strike deep into the heart of both camps, the cats must work together to find the only thing that they can save—the mysterious Blazing Star...[16]

A Forest Divided

"The past is the past. The future is fresh. You must forget all you have known, no matter how much you loved it, and choose paths that will carry you to a new dawn."
―Bright Stream to Clear Sky A Forest Divided, page 315
The spirit cats have spoken: to survive, the cats from the mountains must grow and spread like like Blazing Star. Clear Sky believes the only way to grow is to band together again, but few cats are willing to ally with him. While Tall Shadow plans to establish a camp in the pine forest, River Ripple is content by the water, and Wind Runner has made her own home on the moor. The time has now come for all cats to decide where they want to live—and where their allegiances truly lie.[17]

Path of Stars

"I have traveled so far and loved so much, and yet I am still following the Sun Trail, heading for my new hunting grounds."
―Gray Wing Path of Stars, page 308
After moons of strife, the forest cats have settled into five camps. But now the dangerous rogue Slash has kidnapped Clear Sky's mate, Star Flower, and made demands for prey that the cats cannot afford to meet. Desperate to save Star Flower, Clear Sky must convince the other groups—led by Tall Shadow, Wind Runner, Thunder, and River Ripple—to join forces, or their new way of life may not survive.[18]

The Prophecies Begin arc

"It was a message from StarClan. Fire alone can save our Clan."
―Spottedleaf to Bluestar about StarClan's prophecy Into the Wild, page 5
This was the first Warriors series, and features a kittypet named Rusty joining ThunderClan. Originally, Into the Wild was planned as a single book, where "Rusty would become Firestar by the end, and that would have been all you'd ever have known about the cats of the Clans." However, the publisher was impressed with it and said there was enough for six books.[19] The first Warriors books were planned out by Victoria Holmes, and sent to Kate Cary or Cherith Baldry to put into writing, then published under the name Erin Hunter. When first released, this series was known as the Original Series until being rebranded as The Prophecies Begin in 2015.

The original The Prophecies Begin covers, originally released from 2003 to 2004.

Into the Wild

"Understand that Bluestar does not make this offer lightly. If you wish you train with us, we will take you to our Clan. You must either live with us and respect our ways, or return to your Twolegplace and never come back. You cannot live with a paw in each world."
―Lionheart to Rusty Into the Wild, page 22
For generations, four Clans of wild cats have shared the forest according to the laws laid down by their ancestors. But the warrior code has been threatened, and the ThunderClan cats are in grave danger. The sinister ShadowClan grows stronger every day. Noble warriors are dying—and some deaths are more mysterious than others. In the midst of this turmoil appears an ordinary housecat named Rusty...who may turn out to be the bravest warrior of them all.[20]

Fire and Ice

«Fireheart trembled as a memory burst into his mind of the words that Spottedleaf, the former ThunderClan medicine cat, had said to him before her untimely death. "Fire will save the Clan!" Could it be something to do with the strange cats that showed no fear of fire?»
—Fireheart about WindClan Fire and Ice, page 10
Deep in the heart of the forest four Clans of warrior cats coexist in uneasy harmony—but uncertain times are upon them, and dangers threaten the precarious balance of the forest. Fireheart is a ThunderClan warrior now, but his troubles are far from over. The cats of rival RiverClan grow restless, while WindClan is weak and faces threats from all sides. Now Fireheart faces not only imminent battle, but betrayal from within his own Clan.[21]

Forest of Secrets

«There was a deeply buried mystery surrounding these cats, and he was beginning to feel that it might be beyond his power to ever understand it.»
—Fireheart about Bluestar, Stonefur, and Mistyfoot Forest of Secrets, page 88
Allegiances are shifting among the Clans of warrior cats that roam the forest. With tensions so delicately balanced, friends can become enemies overnight, and some cats are willing to kill to get what they want. Fireheart is determined to find out the truth about the mysterious death of the former ThunderClan deputy Redtail. But as he searches for answers, he uncovers secrets that might be better-left hidden...[22]

The reprinted covers of The Prophecies Begin, released in 2015.

Rising Storm

«It looked as if Bluestar didn't trust any of her warriors except him and maybe Whitestorm. Fireheart realized that Tigerclaw had done more damage than any of the Clan could possibly imagine. The dark warrior had poisoned their leader's judgment and drained away all her confidence in her warriors.»
—Fireheart about Bluestar Rising Storm, page 61
Fireheart's traitorous enemy Tigerclaw has been vanquished and exiled from ThunderClan—but Fireheart can't shake the feeling that he is lurking in the forest, waiting for a chance to strike. In the heat of a blazing summer, Fireheart struggles to handle sinister omens, an apprentice with a shocking secret, and a devastating Clan leader who is a shell of her former shell. And as the forest gets hotter and hotter, every cat braces for the coming storm...[23]

A Dangerous Path

"What is the point? StarClan has decreed that death will come. A dark force walks this forest, and even StarClan themselves cannot control it. Or will not. There is nothing we can do."
―Bluestar A Dangerous Path, page 178
ShadowClan has chosen Tigerclaw as their new leader, and Fireheart fears that this old enemy still harbors dark plans for vengeance on his former Clan. A mysterious threat has invaded the forest, placing every cat's life in peril. And ThunderClan's beloved leader has turned her back on their warrior ancestors. Fireheart can't help but wonder if she's right—has StarClan abandoned them forever?[24]

The Darkest Hour

«Sooner or later, Fireheart now knew, he would have to come face-to-face with Tigerstar in a final confrontation that only one of them could survive. He prayed to StarClan that when the time came he would have the courage and strength to rid the forest of this bloodthirsty cat.»
—Fireheart's thoughts about Tigerstar The Darkest Hour, page 29
The time has come for Fireheart—now Firestar, leader of ThunderClan—to face his destiny. Tigerstar's sinister ambitions have through the whole forest to the brink of a terrible and deadly battle. Now prophecies will unfold, and heroes will rise...[25]

The New Prophecy arc

"Darkness, air, water, and sky will come together and shake the forest to its roots. Nothing will be as it is now, nor as it has been before."
―Bluestar Midnight (book), page 1
This arc takes place roughly eighteen moons after The Prophecies Begin. While the original main characters still appear, they are pushed into the back to focus on the newer cast, mostly the children of the first series' main characters: Brambleclaw, Squirrelpaw, Leafpaw, Tawnypelt, Feathertail, Stormfur, and Crowpaw. This is also the first instance of of multiple point of views and non-ThunderClan point of view characters through Stormfur and Feathertail. Leafpaw is the first medicine cat point of view character, a trend that continues for the remainder of the main arcs. Originally, only three books were planned, having the arc end when the Clans arrived at the lake territories. However, HarperCollins requested three more books, so the total number was six, like the first arc.[26]

The original The New Prophecy covers, originally released from 2005 to 2006.

Midnight

«There was only one solution. He must leave on the journey with only the word of StarClan to guide him, and not come back until he had discovered answers that would prove to Firestar how loyal he had been all along. Or else he would not come back at all.»
—Brambleclaw Midnight (book), page 134
The wild cats of the forest have lived in peace and harmony for many moons—but now, strange messages from their warrior ancestors speak of terrifying new prophecies and a mysterious danger. Brambleclaw, a warrior of ThunderClan, may be the cat with the fate of the forest in his paws. Now he will need all the courage and strength of the greatest warriors to save the Clans.[27]

Moonrise

«The rest of the cats said their own good-byes, and began to follow Brambleclaw out onto the moor. Stormfur brought up the rear. Glancing back, he saw Midnight and Purdy sitting side by side under the outlying trees, watching them go. It was impossible to read their expressions in the gathering dusk. Stormfur waved his tail in a last farewell, and turned his face toward the mountains.»
—Stormfur Moonrise, page 41
Moons have passed since six cats set out on a journey to save their Clans. Now they are traveling home again, but on their way through the mountains, they meet a tribe of wild cats with a secret...and their own mysterious prophecy to fulfill. In the forest, Firestar and Leafpaw watch ThunderClan's world crumbling around them. Will the questing cats make it back in time to save the Clans, or will they be too late?[28]

Dawn

«Squirrelpaw was beginning to think it might have been easier to keep traveling, to journey forever through unfamiliar territory, rather than face the responsibility of having to tell the Clans that they would have to leave their homes or else face a terrible death. But there was still the sign of the dying warrior to come—they had to see this through.»
—Squirrelpaw Dawn (book), page 15
The young cats who set off on a quest many moons ago have returned with a chilling message: the Clans must move to a new home or risk extermination. But the dangers waiting for them beyond their borders are impossible to predict, and the cats have no idea where to go. What they need is a sign from StarClan...[29]

The reprinted covers of The New Prophecy, released in 2015.

Starlight

"Before I go to StarClan, there is something I must do. Firestar, Onewhisker, listen. Mudclaw is a brave warrior, but he is not the right cat to lead WindClan. In these last moons we have learned that the future of our Clans lies in friendship. I want no rivalry between WindClan and ThunderClan after I am gone. We must have no enemies. But this will not happen if Mudclaw rules the Clan."
―Tallstar Starlight, page 117
Before there is peace, blood will spill blood...The Clans have finally arrived in their new home, and now they must struggle to establish territories, learn hidden dangers, and find a new place to communicate with StarClan. But more than one cat is harboring sinister plans that could lead to violence and darkness, and as the warriors wait for a sign, they begin to realize that the threats they face in the forest may not be as perilous as the threats they face from within.[30]

Twilight

"We cannot change our destiny. We just have to have the courage to know what it is, and accept it. StarClan is waiting for me. Good-bye, Leafpool."
―Cinderpelt Twilight, page 309
New territory brings new troubles for the fierce cats of the warrior Clans, and former allies are acting strangely hostile. As divisions between the Clans grow deeper, Firestar's daughters face troubling decisions. The choices they make now could affect ThunderClan for generations to come...and with an unexpected enemy preparing to attack, their courage and strength will be needed more than ever if the Clan is to survive.[31]

Sunset

«All I want is to lead my Clan. But not like this. His loyalty was not to ThunderClan alone, but to Firestar too—the cat who had mentored him in spite of his father, and in the end had trusted him enough to make him Clan deputy. He had thought that loyalty to the Clan didn't necessarily mean loyalty to the Clan leader. That wasn't true. Firestar was ThunderClan.»
—Brambleclaw Sunset, page 296
As shadows of the past continue to plague the forest, Brambleclaw is haunted by a dark figure on a dangerous quest for revenge and must struggle to remain true to his Clan. A sinister path is unfolding and the time is coming for certain warriors to make the choices that will determine their destinies...and the destiny of all the Clans.[32]

The Power of Three arc

"There will be three, kin of your kin, who hold the power of the stars in their paws."
―Skywatcher to Firestar The Sight, page 2
This arc picks up roughly nine moons after The New Prophecy and once again features a new generation of cats; the grandchildren of Firestar and the children of Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight: Lionkit, Hollykit, and Jaykit as kits in the nursery. It revolves around the mysterious prophecy given to Firestar moons ago. The first Super Edition, Firestar's Quest, was released shortly after The Sight and provides context for the origins of the prophecy.

The original Power of Three covers, originally released from 2007 to 2009.

The Sight

"Your gift is not a burden. But you must be brave, because it has more power than the sharpest claw..."
―Spottedleaf to Jaypaw The Sight, page 232
Hollypaw, Jaypaw, and Lionpaw—grandchildren of the great leader Firestar—possess unusual power and talent. But secrets and uncertainty surround them, and a mysterious prophecy hints at trouble to come. The warrior code is in danger, and these three apprentices will need all of their strength to help the Clans survive.[33]

Dark River

"Why was Leafpool so fond of secrets? Secrets about his gift, secrets about Mothwing and StarClan. He suspected there were even more secrets buried in his mentor's heart, secrets that she guarded so closely he had never been able to glimpse them. "Knowledge can be be dangerous," Leafpool warned. Frustration clawed at Jaypaw's belly. He lived his life in darkness; he longed for light and clarity, not shadows. He forced away his anger. Leafpool had lived too long with secrets. He couldn't change her mind in a single night. But why did she have to drag him into her complicated world?"
―Jaypaw Dark River, page 52
Lionpaw, Hollypaw, and Jaypaw, grandchildren of the Clan leader Firestar, are thriving as ThunderClan apprentices. Yet their new responsibilities bring new dangers, and each young cat is about to discover darkness: in the past, in the Clans—and in themselves.[34]

Outcast

"You will find your answers in the mountains. Though they may not be the ones you most want to hear."
―Rock to Jaypaw Outcast, page 60
A secret prophecy shapes the lives of Firestar's grandchildren, and Jaypaw believes that the cats of the ancient Tribe of Rushing Water may hold the key. But when he, Hollypaw, and Lionpaw travel to the Tribe's mountain home, they may discover secrets they never expected.[35]

The reprinted covers of Power of Three, released in 2015.

Eclipse

"Something's wrong. There is a darkness coming that not even StarClan can prevent. And when it comes, we will be helpless to protect the Clans. Helpless even to protect ourselves."
―Yellowfang to Spottedleaf Eclipse, page 6
As Jaypaw, Hollypaw, and Lionpaw struggle with the weight of their destinies, a mysterious warning shakes the Clans' faith in their ancestors. All four Clans are in danger—and the fate of the warrior code now rests in the paws of three apprentices.[36]

Long Shadows

"He'll destroy the Clans. Somehow, we have to find a way to stop him."
―Hollyleaf about Sol Long Shadows, page 199
As doubt sweeps through the forest, Jaypaw, Lionblaze, and Hollyleaf are determined to convince the Clans that StarClan is still vitally important to the warrior code. But darkness lurks in the most unexpected places, and one cat is about to reveal a secret that will rock ThunderClan to its core.[37]

Sunrise

"We'll find out soon enough. Old secrets can't stay buried forever. And if these three cats are not strong enough to deal with the truth, then you, Bluestar, will have destroyed the Clan you love so much..."
―Yellowfang to Bluestar Sunrise (book), page 4
The secret of Hollyleaf's, Jayfeather's, and Lionblaze's true identities have been revealed, but one shocking question remains unanswered. Now Clanmate will turn upon Clanmate, and one more warrior may be lost forever...[38]

The Omen of the Stars arc

"After the sharp-eyed jay and the roaring lion, peace will come on a dove's gentle wing."
―Yellowfang The Fourth Apprentice, page 65
The fourth arc Omen of the Stars is more of a direct continuation from the Power of Three, maintaining the main plot of discovering the truth of the prophecy and keeping Jayfeather and Lionblaze as the main protagonists, but also having some new viewpoints through Dovepaw and Ivypaw. This is also the first arc to feature a point of view from ShadowClan with Flametail. It takes place six moons after the Power of Three ends. These books also feature exclusive Warriors Adventure Game segments in the back of the books.

The original Omen of the Stars covers, originally released from 2009 to 2012.

The Fourth Apprentice

"I don't want to listen! I don't care about special powers, unless they can help me be a loyal warrior to ThunderClan. I don't want any part of any prophecy, especially one that's so vague you can't even be sure which cat it refers to!"
―Dovepaw The Fourth Apprentice, page 85
It has been foretold that Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and one other cat will hold the power of the stars in their paws. Now they must wait for a sign from StarClan to tell them which of their Clanmates will complete the prophecy.[39]

Fading Echoes

"The Three have come at last. I will sleep a little easier from now on. Just be careful - your powers set you apart from other cats, but you are still members of this Clan. You are still bound by the warrior code, for as long as that stands. [...] ThunderClan is lucky that you have come. Let's not ask for the stars as well. Tell me if anything changes. You will have my full support."
―Firestar to the Three Fading Echoes, page 80
Dovepaw now knows that she will be the third cat to hold the power of the stars in her paws. But even together, she, Jayfeather, and Lionblaze may not be able to protect the Clans from a mysterious visitor who threatens their future.[40]

Night Whispers

«Jayfeather shivered against the dread hollowing his belly. Clan cats, cats who lived beside the lake during their waking moments, surrounded him. He could feel their warm hearts beating, quickened by the lies of the dead. There was no hiding now from what was happening: Cats from every Clan were being trained by Dark Forest warriors to rise against their Clanmates, trained to break every part of the code the Clans had long fought to protect.»
—Jayfeather Night Whispers, page 19
The deadly battle with ShadowClan is over, and both Clans are suffering from the results. Ivypaw falls deeper into Tigerstar's trap, Littlecloud falls deathly ill, and Dovepaw discovers a forbidden friend. When each medicine cat receives an omen that their Clan must stand alone to face the danger, the threat of an upcoming battle is almost here, and friendships may be destroyed in the process.[41]

The reprinted covers of the Omen of the Stars, released in 2015.

Sign of the Moon

"Destiny isn't a path that any cat follows blindly. It is always a matter of choice, and sometimes the heart speaks loudest. Deep down, I always knew what I had to do, and that's why I came back to the Clan. Whatever else happens, I trust you to know the right thing to do as well. Listen to your heart, Lionblaze, because that's where your true destiny lies."
―Leafpool advising Lionblaze Sign of the Moon, page 108
As the dark forces that have come between the four warrior Clans grow stronger, Jayfeather is summoned to the mountains by a desperate plea—the Tribe of Rushing Water is on the brink of being lost forever.[42]

The Forgotten Warrior

"This will not be the end of the Clans. As long as I have breath in my body, the Clans will be safe."
―Jayfeather vowing to protect the Clans The Forgotten Warrior, page 204
A divided StarClan has driven a deep rift between the warrior Clans, and the spirits of the Dark Forest are gaining strength. Now the warrior cats must decide whose word they can trust—before it's too late.[43]

The Last Hope

"The time has come to fight our greatest enemy. We can fight alone, or we can stand together. We're stronger side by side, as we were for the Great Journey. Uniting against the Dark Forest is our only hope."
―Firestar to the other Clan leaders The Last Hope, page 229
The battle between the Dark Forest and the warrior Clans has arrived. Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Dovewing wait desperately for the fourth cat who is prophesied to help them—and who may be their only hope for survival.[44]

The A Vision of Shadows arc

"Embrace what you find in the shadows, for only they can clear the sky."
―Firestar The Apprentice's Quest, page 18
This sixth arc of Warriors takes place two years after Omen of the Stars and follows the children of Bramblestar and Squirrelflight, Alderkit and Sparkkit. After given a sign by StarClan, the young son of ThunderClan's leader and deputy sets out to try and right an ancient wrong by bringing SkyClan back to the lake, though troubles soon arise from this well-meaning action. This arc also features Violetkit and Twigkit, the first SkyClan point of view characters in the main series. This arc also continues the Barnes and Noble exclusive chapters, and is the second series created by the new editorial team.[blog 1] The main arc also heavily relies on supplemental material for readers to grasp the full picture, including the Super Editions Hawkwing's Journey and Tigerheart's Shadow, and the novella Tawnypelt's Clan.

The A Vision of Shadows covers, released from 2016 to 2018.

The Apprentice's Quest

"I think I speak for all of us when I tell you that we pledge ourselves to do whatever it takes to find SkyClan and complete the quest."
―Molewhisker to Alderpaw The Apprentice's Quest, page 191
For many moons, ThunderClan, ShadowClan, RiverClan, and WindClan have lived in peace in their territories around the lake. But now they must decipher a mysterious prophecy—a message that will send one young medicine cat apprentice on a quest to determine the fate of all the warrior Clans.[45]

Thunder and Shadow

«Was that the last she'd see of her sister? Now that ShadowClan had turned rogue, could they ever meet again? She stumbled as her paws grew numb beneath her. Grief choked her. She and Violetpaw had chosen different Clans. Maybe their bond of kinship wasn't strong enough to survive their decision.»
—Twigpaw Thunder and Shadow, page 367
Nearly a moon has passed since Alderpaw returned from his journey to SkyClan's gorge, where he found the territory taken over by rogues. Now the same vicious cats that drove out SkyClan have traced Alderpaw's path back to the lake...and ShadowClan may be the next to fall.[46]

Shattered Sky

"But before Violetpaw had taken more than a mouthful, Thistle bounded toward them. Violetpaw eyed him warily. She didn't know him very well, as he and some other rogues had only recently arrived. She couldn't help wondering how many more cats Darktail would welcome into camp as "Kin"."
―Violetpaw Shattered Sky, page 38
ShadowClan has fallen. A group of rogues now rules the pine forest, and their cruel leader, Darktail, will not stop until he has conquered the rest of the Clans. Alderheart is more certain than ever that their only hope is to find the lost SkyClan and fulfill StarClan's prophecy—before Darktail's vicious reign puts an end to the warrior Clans forever.[47]

Darkest Night

«All the prophecies StarClan had sent since he had become a medicine cat had told him to do one thing: bring the five Clans together to keep them strong. And now StarClan had gone to extraordinary measures to bring them this message—they must save ShadowClan. But ShadowClan couldn't survive without a savior, and if Rowanclaw wasn't up to the job, who would be?»
—Alderheart Darkest Night, page 303
SkyClan has returned to its rightful place among the other four warrior Clans, hoping to find a new territory to call home. But not every cat is convinced that this is where SkyClan belongs—and the fate of all five warrior Clans remains uncertain.[48]

River of Fire

"And now...now that the five Clans are finally united once more, there will be new challenges. The sky has cleared at last, but the Clans must come together to make the forest grow."
―Cinderpelt to Alderheart River of Fire, page 259
StarClan's prophecy has been fulfilled, and the long-lost SkyClan has returned to its rightful place among the other four warrior Clans. Many cats believe the danger is past. But after moons of division and strife, ShadowClan is in danger of falling apart forever...[49]

The Raging Storm

"If the Clans can't learn to live peacefully together, how will they face what is to come? Together, the Clans are like a paw with five claws reaching deep into the earth. If each claw is strong, the claw will hold fast. But if just one claw releases its grip, all will be swept away."
―Firestar to StarClan's leaders The Raging Storm, page 4
ShadowClan has returned under the leadership of a new Tigerstar, but their renewed strength has brought the tensions around the lake to an explosive breaking point. SkyClan's place among the Clans is about to be decided once and for all.[50]

The Broken Code arc

«His pelt began to prickle as he felt the heat of a fire burning close by, though he couldn't see it or hear the crackle of flames. Ash fluttered in the sky, swirling around him and settling in tiny gray flakes on his pelt.»
—Shadowpaw's vision Lost Stars, page 53
This seventh arc takes place six moons after A Vision of Shadows. During a harsh leaf-bare, the living Clans' connection with StarClan is unusually severed, and ThunderClan's leader Bramblestar is acting odd. This arc introduces three protagonists in different Clans, Shadowpaw from ShadowClan, Bristlefrost from ThunderClan, and Rootpaw from SkyClan. This arc also challenges the notion of forbidden relationships, which has been a staple in the series, and also reintroduces former main characters into the spotlight, such as Squirrelflight and Bramblestar. This series is also the first to not feature a prophecy given by StarClan in the beginning of the arc, though Shadowpaw receives many visions warning him of the future. Only the first book, Lost Stars, features a Barnes and Noble exclusive bonus scene. Similar with the previous arc, reading the Super Editions Squirrelflight's Hope and Graystripe's Vow will help readers understand the full story of this arc.

The Broken Code covers, released from 2019 to 2021.

Lost Stars

"There is no cat like you in all the five Clans, Shadowpaw. Now great events are coming, and the Clans will experience far-reaching changes. And you, young apprentice—you will have an important part to play."
―Unidentified StarClan spirit Lost Stars, page 2
In the midst of the coldest leaf-bare any warrior can remember, the Clans have lost their connection with their warrior ancestors, and only one ShadowClan apprentice can still hear their voices–or their warning about the new shadow rising within the warrior Clans.[51]

The Silent Thaw

"I'm glad I'm no longer the only cat who sees that StarClan won't return until the codebreakers have atoned."
―Bramblestar's impostor The Silent Thaw, page 262
When the ThunderClan leader, Bramblestar, starts to behave oddly after losing one of his nine lives, suspicion quickly spreads across Clan borders. And after a strange apparition causes unrest in SkyClan and ShadowClan, each warrior must decide where their allegiances lie—with their Clan, or the warrior code itself.[52]

Veil of Shadows

"That cat won't ruin my plans again...and neither will you."
―Bramblestar's impostor Veil of Shadows, page 168
After losing one of his nine lives, ThunderClan's leader, Bramblestar, is intent on rooting out and exiling codebreakers—cats he claims are traitors to the warrior code. But some cats know the truth: something went wrong when he lost a life. This isn't the real Bramblestar, and his true spirit is desperate to return to its rightful place...before the rising tension among the five Clans erupts into outright war.[53]

Darkness Within

"We are dealing with things we don't understand. And we would never forgive ourselves if we made the wrong decision."
―Leafstar about consulting the Sisters Darkness Within, page 106
Is the warrior code worth a warrior's life? Exiled after a battle that left all five Clans devastated, ThunderClan's loyal deputy, Squirrelflight, must bring to light an earth-shattering truth: the identity of the cat ruling ThunderClan while wearing Bramblestar's face. With tensions among the Clans at a breaking point, another battle looms, and even Squirrelflight may not be able to ensure Bramblestar has a body to return to. If he returns at all...[54]

The Place of No Stars

"Your luck is going to run out if you go on tempting fate like this."
―Tigerstar to his son Shadowsight The Place of No Stars (book), page 241
The time has come to enter the Dark Forest. ThunderClan's deputy, Squirrelflight, has vanished with the cat now known to be an impostor, and suspicion and mistrust now reign among the five Clans.

The A Starless Clan arc

This eighth arc takes place three moons after The Broken Code. It continues the trend of having three protagonists in different Clans, but is the first to feature a RiverClan point of view with Frostpaw; Sunbeam of ShadowClan and Flamepaw of ThunderClan are the other protagonists. The Story Team wanted to hear from a young RiverClan member during "a moment of serious upheaval" when "major decisions could fall into the paws of an apprentice, who isn't at all sure she is ready for that level of responsibility."[57] This arc does not feature Barnes and Noble exclusive chapters, nor does it open with a prophecy from StarClan. The books feature an unique naming system with each book referring to one of the five Clans.

But when tragedy strikes RiverClan, old fears will give rise to new tensions—unless one young medicine cat apprentice can use her unusual connection with StarClan to calm the coming storm.[58]

Sky

Disaster has struck at the heart of RiverClan, leaving its warriors and its new medicine cat apprentice scrambling to protect their Clan—even if it means lying to the others. But at a time when the warrior code itself is shifting, no Clan is truly at peace...or truly safe.[59]

In RiverClan, young medicine cat apprentice Frostpaw is desperate to guide her Clanmates down the right path—which isn't easy when Tigerstar seems to be watching their every move. Within ShadowClan and ThunderClan, rifts are opening between once-loyal Clanmates as the changes to the Code stretch tempers to the tipping point. As tensions heighten and old grudges take new hold, one wrong move could prove that peace among the Clans can never last for long.[60]

She thinks she's a safe distance from ShadowClan's prying eyes, but Sasha fears that Tigerstar will soon discover the existence of his kits. As leaf-bare stretches on and Sasha finds it harder to feed her family, she wonders if her kits might be better off as warriors, with a Clan to protect and train them. But where does Sasha belong?[108] This book also overlaps with A Shadow in RiverClan.

Ravenpaw's Path

These graphic novels feature Ravenpaw and Barley before The New Prophecy. James Barry returned to illustrate these books, and he subsequentially became the primary artist for the Warriors graphic novels. These issues were later reprinted in color in one volume in 2018.

Ravenpaw's Path, originally released in 2009.

Shattered Peace

"We have seen that you and Barley are in trouble. Listen to us. You have as much right to live on the farm as the Clans have to live in the forest. That is your home."
―Bluestar to Ravenpaw Shattered Peace, page 87
Ravenpaw has settled into life on the farm, away from the forest and Tigerstar's evil eye. He knows that leaving the warrior clans was the right choice, and he appreciates his quiet days and peaceful nights with his best friend, Barley. But when five rogue cats from Twolegplace come to the barn seeking shelter, Ravenpaw's new life is threatened. He and Barley must try to find a way to overpower the rogues—before they lose their home for good.[109]

A Clan in Need

«These rogues are vicious...but they're no warriors. And tonight—for one night—Barley and Violet and I are. Tonight, ThunderClan shows them what real warriors are made of!»
—Ravenpaw A Clan in Need, page 76
Ravenpaw and Barley have been driven away from their farm by a group of vicious cats. Now the two loners must turn to ThunderClan—led by Ravenpaw's friend Firestar—for shelter. Firestar takes them in and promises to help them take back their home as soon as possible, but ThunderClan is in great danger. BloodClan cats have been launching raids on ThunderClan's territory and attacking Clan patrols. Can Ravenpaw and Barley help Firestar and his Clan fight off their enemies? And will they ever be able to get home again?[110]

The Heart of a Warrior

"This is my territory. I will defend it to the death."
―Ravenpaw declaring his loyalty to defending Barley's farm The Heart of a Warrior, page 60
Ravenpaw and Barley helped their friends in ThunderClan defeat the vicious BloodClan cats in Twolegplace. Now they're ready to fight to reclaim their home on the farm. Firestar has promised to send a warrior patrol to assist them, but Ravenpaw worries that it won't be enough to chase out the invaders. He knows that he must find his courage and fight like a warrior—or lose his home forever.[111]

SkyClan and the Stranger

This graphic novel arc follows SkyClan and the experience they have with a new arrival. This arc takes place during The New Prophecy, and was also illustrated by James Barry. Similar with the previous graphic novels, these were later reprinted in color in 2019.

SkyClan and the Stranger, originally released in 2011.

The Rescue

"You've united the Clan. It's still only a few seasons old and yet we're strong now. SkyClan's future looks secure at last."
―Billystorm to Leafstar The Rescue, page 15
Newleaf is coming, and Leafstar is proud to see SkyClan thriving under her leadership. The woods are brimming with prey, the warriors' den is full, and Leafstar is expecting kits of her own. But a stranger is lurking near SkyClan's territory, and Leafstar's newborn kits—and the rest of the young Clan—could be in serious danger.[112]

Beyond the Code

"We have to trust him. That's what being a Clanmate is all about."
―Leafstar about Sol
With Leafstar's encouragement, Sol, a former kittypet, has joined the ranks of SkyClan. He dreams of becoming a great warrior and promises to be helpful and brave. But Leafstar soon begins to wonder if Sol respects the rules of the warrior code. And when Sol's actions lead to a perilous disaster for SkyClan, Leafstar has to figure out whether he can be trusted—before it's too late.[113]

After the Flood

"You'll only ever be as strong as your weakest kit or oldest elder!"
―Sol After the Flood, page 87
Leafstar is struggling to keep SkyClan united in the wake of the flood that destroyed their camp, but her Clanmates are scared of what might happen next. Meanwhile, Sol continues to demand that Leafstar make him a warrior, but Leafstar isn't sure that Sol will ever be ready to embrace the warrior code. As SkyClan faces another devastating challenge, Leafstar must figure out what is best for her Clan—once and for all.[114]

Field Guides

The Field Guides do not have a storyline, but rather, act as references for the main series, offering facts and viewpoints not available in the normal plotline. However, with some of the earlier Field Guides, such as Secrets of the Clans and potentially Code of the Clans, some of its information has been retconned by Dawn of the Clans. These books were written by Tui Sutherland,[6] and Vicky Holmes,[115] with the last Field Guide being released in 2013.

The Field Guides, released in 2007 to 2013.

Secrets of the Clans

"The story of the beginning of the warrior Clans has been passed down by cats of all Clans, from elder to warrior, from warrior to apprentice, from queen to kit. The story is never the same twice, and parts grow uncertain, or they become suddenly clear in the telling. There are some cats who walk dimly, their names and deeds lost in the sweet fog of the elders' den, for the warrior Clans have roamed the forest for moons beyond counting..."
―Narrator on the Clans Secrets of the Clans, page 1
Now the truth can be revealed. Look within to find: The mystical origins and secret legends of the Clans. An insiders' tour of the Clan camps and territories. The histories and characters of each Clan, and information about their leaders and medicine cats. Knowledge of cats outside the Clans. The tenets of the warrior code. Prophecies and omens, and how they have been fulfilled. And many more truths about the secrets, beliefs, and daily lives of the cats of the Clans.[116]

Cats of the Clans

"There are so many cats, many more that you know about. You would be here a moon and more to hear them all. But I shall tell you about the ones I remember most clearly, and the ones I watch still. Oh, yes, I have watched them all, from as far back as any cat in the Clans remember, and farther. And not only the four Clans that live beside the lake now. Much as they might with to think they are the center of the world, there are other cats of equal worth-or more-far beyond their fragile borders."
―Rock Cats of the Clans, page 3
Hear the stories of the great warriors as they've never been told before! Cats of the Clans is chock-full of visual treats and captivating details, including full-color illustrations and in-depth biographies of important cats—from fierce Clan leaders to wise medicine cats to the most mischievous kits, as well as loners, rogues, and kittypets.[117]

Code of the Clans

"As you've heard, we are not always perfect, but we have a great deal of faith in our warrior ancestors. The code lives in our heartbeat, the blood pulsing beneath our fur. When we die, the code carries on in our kits, and their kits, for all the moons to come. StarClan willing, the code of the Clans will live forever, until the forest and the lake have turned to dust and our hunting grounds are no more."
―Leafpool concluding the reader's time with her Code of the Clans, page 156
The secrets behind the warrior code will finally be revealed. An ominous sign from StarClan that signaled the need to patrol borders. The unexpected help from a warrior ancestor that cemented the importance of elders. A secret coup that led to a deputy's new role. A medicine cat's pleas that stopped a spree of inter-Clan bloodshed and many more never-before-told stories![118]

Battles of the Clans

"Battle is not always the answer, but it is a part of our heritage, the legacy passed to us by our warrior ancestors, as well as the path to our future. Some questions can only lead to conflict; all challenges deserve a brave, carefully planned response. As long as we fight with honor, courage and respect for our enemies, the legacy of battle deserves to survive. We will continue to pass on our skills to the new apprentices, then watch as they train the next generation. Heroes will be celebrated, the losing side condemned to dust in our memories. This is what it means to be a warrior: to be proud of our legacy, of the battles that we have fought and that our ancestors fought on our behalf."
―Onestar about the battles the Clans fight Battles of the Clans, page 159
An inside look at each Clan's fighting secrets: ShadowClan's night ambush technique. ThunderClan's surprise Lightning Strike tactic. WindClan's secret underground tunneling. RiverClan's water maneuvers. SkyClan's fearsome "skydrop" move. Plus never-before-told stories behind the most significant battles in Clan history![119]
