I read the third installment of The New Prophecy the day it came out, and like everyone says, it was a suspenseful, adventurous, and a simply outstanding book.
The questing cats, Crowpaw, Squirrelpaw, Brambleclaw, Tawnypelt, and Stormfur, return to the forest, leaving Stormfur's sister, Feathertail, behind. When they arrive back at home, ThunderClan were eager to leave their forest, about to be destroyed by the Twolegs. They even risked leaving their cats behind; Leafpaw is trapped in a cage with kittypets and kittypet food, and Squirrelpaw will do anything to save her. There is a particular cat who is lost, and they may turn into a kittypet, or worse, dead. I believe that this book kept you more entertained than the other two, though there was slightly less excitement, and it starts right where Moonrise left off with a cliffhanger.
Overall, Dawn is the best of the New Prophecy series, and I recommend Dawn as much as any of the other Warriors books. Like many others, I am now awaiting Starlight, the next book in the series.
