2 OUT OF 5 STARS
One of the over thirty novels in the Warrior Cats series, Bramblestar’s Storm still manages to stand-alone and requires no previous reading. Although a reader new to the series might be a bit confused at first, everything will be explained enough for a new reader.
The book is not without it’s faults, Erin Hunter (really several authors working as one) is notorious for forgetting their own characters and plots. Although no cats were raised from the dead this time, there were a few mistakes which might bother a fan who’s read more of the series. The POV feels a little weak, it’s a character we already know so much about and the story could have been more interestingly told through someone else. The book also feels bogged down by too many events in too small of a time-span.
On the other hand it is interesting and it does introduce a few new, interesting characters for the series to use in future books. There is also plenty of action with battles and a decent amount of drama between the different cat groups.
For an adult reader it’s enjoyable, but nothing remarkable. Slightly older children (the series does have quite a bit of death and violence), especially children with an interest in animals will definitely love this book to pieces.
