" I've never disliked any cat in these books as much as I dislike Twigpaw(branch) and Violetshine. Tigerclaw(star) was less infuriating. Alderheart can be annoying too, but only when it comes to the sisters... Still one more book to go.. Ugh. I am really excited for the next set of books though! This set of books seemed chaotic and pointless. More time than normal seemed to pass in these than the other sets. " said.

" This book is probably my favorite one in Vision of Shadows so far! It feels amazing to have SkyClan back because I've been WAITING for them to come to the lake, and here they are! I'm still disappointed about Jayfeather... it seems like the only thing he ever talks about are herbs! The old Jayfeather never did that. Sure, Erin Hunter probably wants to move on but I miss the old Jayfeather. Besides that, I love the relationship between Twigbranch and Violetshine. I especially love how attached to Violetshine Twigbrach is! Even though they usually have a tough time, everything turns out well in the end. That's the kind of sister relationship I've been looking for between these two characters. Overall, the detail and story itself was amazing as always and I'm excited for the release of #6!" said.

"WARNING : Spoilers
A Vision Of Shadows is probably the worst warrior series ever. This book just confirmed it for me. (Finished it in 2hours).

1.) The Alderheart X Velvet(kittypet) thing was so unneeded. It was literally a copy of what happened in Bramblestar’s Storm(prequel : Special Edition Warriors book) starring Alderheart’s father Bramblestar and a kittypet named Jessy but their relationship that went nowhere but was far better than this book’s by a margin. I feel like the author just ran out of ideas and decided to put this in to fill the book up. The only couple that I hope for right now is Stormcloud X Cherryfall (from Bramblestar’s Storm) which probably will happen in the future.

2.) This whole SkyClan+ShadowClan is really dumb super glad that ShadowClan is coming back together.

3.) Twigpaw’s new warrior name is really dumb(especially why she was named that by Bramblestar). Luckily she didn’t stay in SkyClan, could’ve had an even worse name from Leafstar.

"**** SPOILERS ****





So happy with how things worked out at the end of the book.





With ShadowClan's missing warriors returning along with Tigerheart and Dovewing. The deaths of the book were very sad (apart from Nettle-hooray!), especially Briarlight after all this time and her battle with broken legs. When Strikestone came to ThunderClan to deliver the news of Tigerheart's "death" though, I swear I almost had to shut the book because if StarClan had allowed him to die after everything ShadowClan had been through, I would not have been a happy camper! I still feel like this is not the end of Darktail's rogues... I feel like as long as there are some out there, they will not give up trying to get revenge. Especially with the confirmation of Sleekwhisker's loyalty to the Kin, and the added death of Nettle. Maybe the last book of the series will bring around their final defeat and tying up that loose end so that no more of Darktail's plague remains.

"I'm not a hater of these books, in fact, they're one of my favorites(Particularly the first series). I just wish that (the) Erin Hunter(s) would stop writing more and more books. It's starting to look a bit like a money grab, and I've noticed that the quality of the stories has decreased since the first series. Maybe they're running out of ideas, but I really think there's been enough books, and I don't want to see Warriors ruined.
As for this book by itself, I'm so glad Graystripe is still alive. He's been in every single book so far. I'm also glad that we have some representation for a Clan other than ThunderClan. (view spoiler)" said.

"My favorite part was when RiverClan joined the clans again, and also when Twigbranch and Finleap got their warrior names. Twigbranch's name could have been a bit more creative though; I just don't like how both parts of her name mean such similar things. My least favorite part was when Dovewing left Thunderlcan forever, because Thunderclan is the main clan, and Dovewing was one of my favorite characters, so now that she is in a clan that has no main characters, she won't be as involved as before, unless it shows something in her perspective. I was very suprised when she left Thunderlcan, even after reading Tigerheart's Shadow. It was so sad when Briarlight died, because he was one of my absolute favorite charcters ever. It was also sad when Rowanclaw died defending Tawnypelt and Yarrowleaf's kits from Sleekwhisker and hte rogues that she as spying for. and, what does Yarrowleaf look like? I keep thinking she looks like Yellowfang, but that might only be becuase their names both start with the same letter." said.

"This book is probably one of the best ones in the arc so far. Lots of things happen, which is great. There is almost no "filler" (for example, pages of cats patrolling or going on an 'adventure' like in Moonrise or The Fourth Apprentice *shudders*).

There are multiple points of view in this book. So many that it gets confusing at one point, even for a veteran Warriors fan (there was a point when the climax happens and we see it from one point of view, and then two chapters later we see the same event from another point, as if the book went back in time).

This book made me feel like I was reading Warriors again. As of late, I've had the feeling that Warriors isn't what it once was (and being full of random cats that I only know by name and nothing more). (view spoiler)" said.

"*sigh*



......


Twigbranch


....

It was still a good book other than that though!

Thoughts:

-Violetshine and Tree are so cute :)

-The mediator thing for Tree seems kind of strange to me now, but I think the Erins could really do a lot with that. I'll be interested to see where they take it and how it develops his character. (maybe some POV chapter from him in the future?)

-As for the whole Alderheart and Velvet thing, I liked Velvet, but it seemed kind of unnecessary for there to be another medicine cat relationship.

-The idea of a Tigerstar 2 was kind of weird, but Tawnypelt seemed a bit too old to be leader anyway, so I guess he was the only other real option. I do feel like the cats should have felt more over him having the name. I believe it was only mentioned once in passing in one of Alderheart's chapters.

-I liked how throughout Twigpaw's apprenticeship, she and Sparkpelt seemed to grow closer to eachother.

-Is it just me, or does Violetshine seem like a perfectly likable character until you see her from Twigpaw/branch's perspective? She just always seems so cross and disagreeable towards her for no apparent reason. You could say it was because of Twigpaw having moved back to ThunderClan away from Violetshine, but I really just read it as her being skeptical of any idea Twigpaw had.

3 stars
I liked it, but it wasn't amazing.
