Into the wild (Warriors) – Erin Hunter

For generations, four clans of wild cats have shared the forest according to laws laid down by powerful ancestral clans. But now things are changing: ShadowClan has banished WindClan and is threatening RiverClan and ThunderClan by insisting on hunting rights within their territories.

What’s more, each year the TwoLegs encroach further into the forest, and prey is becoming scarce. A prophecy reveals, “Fire alone can save [the] Clan.” Into this dangerous situation wanders a “kittypet,” a young, bright orange tomcat whose courage earns him, despite objections by some, a place as an apprentice ThunderClan warrior and the new name of Firepaw.
