I've read most of the warriors cats books, I'm on the third book in omen of the stars, and this is one of my favorite book for sure!!!!!!

Into The Wild is a great book. I recommend all the Warriors books. My favourite part of the story was when Firepaw and Greypaw become warriors! Page Turners Book Club met in July and August to talk about our favourite series and Warriors was definitely one of them!

I LOVE this book. i'm already on the second series! The author does a great job of making it seem like you are really there with Firepaw. I deeply recommend this book if your bored or just need something to do. I can't put it down!

I don't really like all the Brokenstar drama. He is probably the worst leader ever, sending kits into battle and kicking the elders out of their den. I liked Firepaw and Graypaw when they got their warrior names.

Longtail vs Firepaw was awesome! and sss warrior cats just made longtail more awesome. In that video, Firepaw got flung around by longtail and then he was like "How'd he do that? Aah! A cat with such a long tail!"

Reading this book inspired me so much into thinking how this world has conflicts that can't be solved with a quick solution. To gain trust, you must be loyal to all your family, friends, and other interactives. Reading this book will teach everyone a lot. After reading this book, you won't want to miss another warriors book.

These books are all actually so cute. My childhood consisted of long days lounging on a couch, reading a Warriors Cats book and wrapped up in a nice blanket. So here is the original of the beginning, the very first book. "Rusty" is just an average house cat, but with the dreams of something bigger. One day, he meets a kitten from the great forest behind his owner's backyard. Knowing there was a life of adventure out back, could he make the decision to join them? If so, what will happen? Definitely a good book for cat lovers.

Tigerclaw!
Fireheart stared back without blinking. He was a warrior now. He had made an enemy of the Clan's deputy, but Tigerclaw had made an enemy of him. Fireheart was not the same naïve young cat who had joined the Clan all those moons ago. He was bigger, stronger, faster, and wiser. If he was destined to oppose Tigerclaw, then so be it. Fireheart was ready for the challenge. -Fireheart's thoughts after his and Graystripe's naming ceremonies, pg 272

Rusty blinked. He stared--excited, uncertain--up past the ferns that encircled him, through the canopy of leaves, to the stars that glittered in the clear sky. The scent of the Clan cats still hung heavy in the evening air. And as Rusty turned and headed for home, he felt a strange sensation inside him, tugging him back into the depths of the forest. His fur prickled deliciously in the light wind, and the rustling leaves seemed to whisper his name into the shadows. ~Rusty's thoughts, pages 23-24

Whitespirit Oct 21, 2013

Firepaw felt something stir within him, a fire that burned in his belly and rang in his ears. He suddenly felt that everything he had done for the Clan so far--all the prey he had stalked, all the enemy warriors he had fought--had been for the sake of this single moment. ~Firepaw's thoughts during his warrior naming ceremony, pages 269-270

"If you wish to train with us, we will have to take you into 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, page 22.

Into the Wild is the first book in a series of 6 books, Warriors: The Prophecies Begin. This part of the story covers how an ordinary house-cat named Rusty enters the forest, as the book title suggests, to catch a mouse, only to be confronted by a patrol of feral cats. They first tell him to leave, but after showing his interest in joining their Clan, they offer him training. Meanwhile, a sinister Shadowclan is planning something, something that only the subject of a prophecy received many moons ago can stop.

Into the Wild follows the adventures of a house cat named Rusty. One day, he is invited to join ThunderClan, one of the four Clans of wild cats living in the nearby forest. Rusty agrees, is taken into the Clan, and receives the new name Firepaw. Firepaw becomes friends with fellow apprentice Graypaw, but also encounters hostility due to his outside origin. The real reason, however, that Firepaw was asked to join the Clan, is due to the fact that there is a prophecy that states that "Fire alone can save our Clan". Firepaw encounters various adventures in his training to become a warrior, and receives his warrior name, Fireheart at the end of the novel.

INTO THE WILD is the story of a domestic cat, a kittypet named Rusty, who joins a community of feral cats known as ThunderClan. ThunderClan is one of several feral communities occupying adjoining territories; Rusty is drafted to train as a warrior to help protect the traditional borders of ThunderClan territory as other clans threaten to overrun them. This was an engrossing read, with believable characters and situations. My original fears that it would fall into cutesy-poo language -- talking cats, after all! -- and situations were unfounded. In fact I admire the author''s ability to create immediately understandable terms used by the cats -- sunhigh for noon, for example. INTO THE WILD is the first in the author''s Warriors series, and is followed by FIRE AND ICE, FOREST OF SECRETS, RISING STORM, A DANGEROUS PATH, and THE DARKEST HOUR. The series has also led to a sister series, Warriors: The New Prophecy, with three books to date: MIDNIGHT, MOONRISE, and DAWN.
