Discover the origins of the warrior Clans in this thrilling prequel to Erin Hunter’s #1 nationally bestselling Warriors series
The fifth 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.
The spirit-cats have spoken: to survive, the cats from the mountains must grow and spread like the 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 new 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 will live—and where their allegiances truly lie.
Also contains an exclusive bonus scene!
Tealgaze’s Path — Chapter four!
Tealgaze clambered over the rocks, her breath coming in sharp gasps as she struggled to climb the rocky outcrop.
She reached the top and collapsed on the soft tussocks of grass and moss that grew on the edge of the cliff.
Tealgaze looked over at the direction of where she came from and admired the view somewhat dejectedly.
She had been aimlessly wandering towards the mountains for two moons now, but she had yet to find a good place to settle. Tealgaze had run across many different cats — rogues, loners, and kittypets — and learned quite a bit about different ways of life. Some of them weren’t very hospitable, but some of them offered to share their food or shelter for a day or so, and Tealgaze happily took up their offers to rest up and get her strength.
But now that two moons has passed, her belly had swelled with kits, and they were almost due, she was starting to get worried.
What if she gave birth to her kits in a dangerous place?
What if she couldn’t find food for them?
What if a fox or badger killed them?
Or worse, what if she died during kitting, and her kits were forced to survive on their own?
• Stop stressing and keep going,• Tealgaze told herself as she stood up and trekked onwards, her paws sore and tired.
She walked until the sun fell, and right when she was about to give up and go to sleep for the night, she stumbled upon a small hollow ringed by three trees. Brambles and gorse surrounded it in a dense tangle, which promised safety.
Intrigued, Tealgaze searched for a way through (a thinner patch of bramble) and pushed her way inside.
• Maybe this will be a good spot for kits? •
After looking around, Tealgaze settled down for the night, feeling safe and content in her shady little hollow.
Over the next quarter moon, Tealgaze was busy working on making the hollow safer and more secure, and even made a fresh-kill pile to remind her of home. She looked on it sadly, thinking about WolfClan and her siblings. Tealgaze felt grief cool her heart — how could she leave them? She missed them so, so much. Was Dustyrose doing better? Was she even still alive? Was Mousepetal deputy, like she seemed destined to be? What about Pouncebranch? Robinbreeze? Did Rippedgorse find a mate who would actually have kits — happily — with him?
Tealgaze felt ashamed of herself for overreacting. But then again… she said no…
A sharp, searing pain suddenly gripped her stomach.
• No… •
Another spasm made her crouch down as she gritted her teeth against the pain. “ No.” Tealgaze gasped to empty silence. “ The kits.”
My hope dangles on a string like slow-spinning redemption — that’s from Vindicated by Dashboard Confessional heh
The final chapter is in the final chapter of DoTC!
