Tallkit falls off on his first attempt, causing Shrewkit to taunt him and give him the nickname "Wormkit".
Shrewkit and Barkkit are going to be moor runners, one of the two classes in WindClan. Moor runners hunt and fight on the moor, as the name would suggest. Tallkit, meanwhile, is going to be a tunneler, cats that tunnel through the ground to find more prey and do reconnaissance work. Tallkit's father Sandgorse comes over and tells Tallkit the age old story of Shattered Ice, the first tunneler ever.
He then gets Tallkit to practice his tunneling, which frustrates Tallkit because he secretly longs to be a moor runner. After Tallkit falls into the hole he digs, he runs off, proclaiming that he doesn't want to be a tunneler. Tallkit runs back to his mother, Palebird. As she cleans him up, the queens discuss Tallkit's deceased sister Finchkit, who died moments after being born. After that, Sandgorse shows up and makes Tallkit practice moving rocks. This is interrupted by Heatherstar, who has decided it is time to make Ryekit, Stagkit, and Doekit into apprentices.
The tunnelers start talking among themselves, and predict that one of them will be apprenticed to Woollytail, because he's a tunneler and WindClan is lacking in them at the moment. Ryepaw is apprenticed to Larksplash, a moor runner, and Doepaw is apprenticed to Aspenfall, also a moor runner.
Shrewkit says that it looks like Stagpaw will be a tunneler, but Heatherstar surprises everyone by saying that his mentor will be Cloudrunner, yet another moor runner. This greatly angers the tunnelers, who claim that Heatherstar isn't respecting them. Sandgorse reassures his fellow tunnelers that Tallkit will keep tunneling alive. Later, Tallkit injures his paw, but Barkkit helps him out with it.
Barkkit explains that he wants to train under Hawkheart as a medicine cat. Tallkit then visits Flamepelt, an elder who tells a story about a misadventure he had when tunneling.
Eventually, the time comes for Tallkit to become an apprentice. Tallkit is worried, because he hates tunneling, but Heatherstar astounds everyone again by naming Dawnstripe, a moor runner, as his mentor. The tunnelers become extremely angry, but Heatherstar argues that Tallpaw is made to be a moor runner. After the ceremony, Sandgorse talks with Tallpaw, but grows angry with him when he says that he wants to be a moor runner. However, Tallpaw is too excited about being a moor runner to care.
Dawnstripe takes him out for his first time around the moor, and shows him the Clan territory. Tallpaw nearly falls into the gorge, but his mentor saves him. When he returns to WindClan camp, Shrewpaw taunts him again, now calling him "Wormpaw" because of his status as an apprentice. For one stage of their assessment, the three apprentices need to hunt down a cat in the midst of a large heather patch. Tallpaw is chosen to be the hunted cat.
Warriors (novel series) - Wikipedia
After an action scene in which he tries to evade the attempts of his fellow apprentices to catch him, Tallpaw is caught at the last moment. Afterwards, Tallpaw hears Meadowslip and Brackenwing talking about a group of cats that come to stay with WindClan during Greenleaf. Intrigued, he asks his mother about it, but she tells him he'll find out about it later. Later, Tallpaw goes on a patrol with the new warriors, Stagleap, Ryestalk, and Doespring.
In the middle of the patrol, they are interrupted by Sandgorse and some of the other tunnelers, who boast about how they have nearly completed a tunnel into the gorge. This tunnel has been their prime project for quite a while.
Sandgorge, taking advantage of Heatherstar's policy that each moor runner apprentice must spend one day underground, forces Tallpaw to go with him, hoping that Tallpaw will see the completion of the gorge tunnel. Tallpaw is terrified inside the tunnel, and he knows that the life of a tunneler isn't for him.
As the cats continue digging, the wall before them starts gushing water, and the tunnel begins to flood. Tallpaw races out of the tunnel with the other cats. Everyone survives, but Tallpaw is shocked when the tunnelers talk about continuing the project. Sandgorse says that they'll break through to the gorge together and tries to force his son to become a tunneler, but Tallpaw tells him that he's a moor runner at heart, and won't be a copy of his father.
Tallpaw prepares to head to his first Gathering. WindClan is the first to arrive, and ThunderClan is the second. Goosefeather banters with Hawkheart, and then ShadowClan shows up. Moonpaw who will grow up to be Bluestar's mother gets irritated when Shrewpaw shows off, and it is implied that Stormtail is her mentor.
Also, it's mentioned that Stagleap has a huge crush on the RiverClan she-cat Shimmerpelt. When the WindClanners get back home, the visitors have arrived. They are Algernon, his mate Bess, their daughter Reena, and two other cats who joined up with them called Sparrow and Mole. Nests are arranged for all of them except Reena, but Tallpaw offers to let her sleep with him and Shrewpaw in the apprentice den. The next day, Tallpaw goes on a patrol with Reena.
During the patrol, Woollytail shows up and mentions the flooding tunnel. Tallpaw explains what happened to a shocked Dawnstripe, who tells Heatherstar. Heatherstar, realizing the danger, forces the tunnelers to abandon the gorge tunnel project.
Sandgorse is angered, and he tells Tallpaw to stay away from his tunnels and to stop trying to ruin his life. Tallpaw wakes up early one morning and goes to gaze out over the moor. Sparrow joins him, and points out that he controls his destiny, not Sandgorse.

Tallpaw doesn't feel so bad about not being a tunneler now. That morning, Tallpaw scents ThunderClan and warns his Clanmates about the intruders. He scents ShadowClan a few moments later, but assumes them to also be on the way to the Moonstone and doesn't mention it. A few minutes later, Stagleap scents the ShadowClanners and realizes that an invading force has come.
The patrol rushes back to stop them, and finds Stonetooth, the ShadowClan deputy, leading an assault on their camp. They fight the ShadowClan cats and drive them off, but Shrewpaw's mother Brackenwing dies in the battle. Tallpaw says that it was his fault, because he scented the ShadowClan force, and Shrewpaw attacks him because he blames Tallpaw for his mother's death. The tunnelers return later, and they fight with the other WindClanners over whether they could have changed the result of the battle.
Meanwhile, Sparrow's interest in the gorge tunnel has been growing. Setting[ edit ] In the forest of the warrior cats, there are four Clans of feral cats who follow StarClan, their spiritual ancestors.
Each Clan chooses a leader and then StarClan gives nine lives to leaders like Firestar, the leader of ThunderClan and the protagonist of the book. In this book, Firestar goes to rebuild SkyClan, the lost Clan. The novel follows Firestar, leader of ThunderClan on a journey to find a fifth lost Clan of the forest called SkyClan. Firestar and his mate Sandstorm journey upriver in order to rebuild the long-lost Clan. When they arrive at the Clan's former home, they meet Skywatcher, a descendant of SkyClan, who tells them about SkyClan's story, and shows them the Whispering Cave, they also find SkyClan's old home deserted, the caves strangely marked with tiny claw marks resembling those of rats.
Eventually, Firestar re-establishes the Clan and helps the Clan fight the force that destroyed the ancient SkyClan: Though SkyClan emerges victorious, the warrior Rainfur is killed and Firestar loses his second life.
As Firestar and Sandstorm prepare to return home, Leafdapple is made the leader and renamed Leafstar on the Sky Rock, which is used to connect to the SkyClan ancestors. Into the Woods, is especially recommended for cat lovers everywhere".
The art was also praised, with the reviewer writing that "Hudson's artwork brings Sasha's emotional journey to life, showing each moment of fear, anxiety, contentment and joy. The cat's-eye perspective of many of the panels, in addition, add [ sic ] a dramatic, energizing element to the book". The reviewer also wrote that "a twist at the end will leave fans eager for the next installment of Sasha's saga", and that the book would appeal to young adults trying to find their place in the world.
The reviewer also wrote that "though the cover claims that this is a 'manga,' the straightforward illustrations are drawn in a simple, realistic style". These relationships are not allowed for various reasons: Holmes said that another central theme of the series centres on "faith and spirituality" in StarClan. Some scenes take place within StarClan's realm, with no living cats present as point-of-view characters. Thus the existence of an afterlife and the influence of spirits who have passed on and yet retain their earthly identities is integral to all of the plot arcs in the series.
Another idea explored in the novels is the reactions of different faiths when meeting each other. For example, the Tribe of Rushing Water, which believes in different spiritual ancestors than the Clans, is introduced in Moonrise. In an author chat, Holmes explained that the books never say that either of the Clans or the Tribe of Rushing Water is right about faith because both are "equally valid.
Holmes said that "ignorance is a very scary thing! Mothwing and Cloudtail do not believe in StarClan.
Another theme is that characters can be a mix of good and evil. Holmes has said she is fascinated by these "shades of gray" in personalities.
