“ ‘It’s time to face your destiny,’ Sagewhisker announced. ‘You have to be a medicine cat.’ ”
In this super edition we follow the life of Yellowfang, who acts as one of ThunderClan’s medicine cats in the main series. We see ShadowClan before it’s fall into darkness under Brokenstar and just how things got so terrible that Yellowfang found herself exiled.
Definitely one of the better super editions, it isn’t without it’s faults. The usual mistakes are all there. It also seems a bit rushed at times, Raggedstar loses all nine lives at once to hasten Brokentail’s appointment as leader.
Yellowfang is more than interesting enough to carry the story through her kithood all the way into her joining ThunderClan. It offers a wonderful look into another Clan’s perspective, a nice break from the usual view of ThunderClan. It is a shame names and ages were often confused and that the end seemed rushed while the middle dragged on. It’s definitely one of the best books in the series but still not quite spectacular.
