    REREAD 3/9/18 Having read this one a few years ago, it was nice to revisit the story by reading these in order instead of this one on it's own. This is still a great series, and definitely made more sense this time around! I love the Warriors books, and have quite a few of these manga in my to-read pile. Today I actually culled out all of the shorter books so that I had less books in the giant pile in the front room. Surprisingly it made a difference!

Today I actually culled out all of the shorter books so that I had less books in the giant pile in the front room. Surprisingly it made a difference! The art seems quite good, although not exactly as I picture Warriors. I guess nothing can compare to the beautiful covers of the books. The story isn't one I've read yet with the Warriors novels, so that was a plus for me too. I'm guessing since it's about Skyclan, that it's set in the Dawn of the Clans books which I haven't finished yet. It was different reading it with the pictures to compare as well. I quite liked this, and will have to check out which of the other books I own. Four stars.

    This was also fine, I think I just don't care enough about Sol to be interested in this trilogy. This was also fine, I think I just don't care enough about Sol to be interested in this trilogy.

    I love how the mangas explain sub-characters lives. It really helps the reader to understand them more. This is about the life of Sol he has a hard childhood, which would explain why he is the way he is in the main series. While reading this manga I kept thinking "In order for you to help people, they must first be willing to help themselves." (I find myself thinking that a lot.) Nice quick read. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has read the rest of the warrior series. If you skip th I love how the mangas explain sub-characters lives.

    This is the second book in the Skyclan and the Stranger series of manga/graphic novels, which details the experiences of Skyclan when they meet a kittypet (view spoiler)[who ends up becoming the rogue Sol (hide spoiler)] .

This is an entertaining story and gives the reader more background about Leafstar's experiences as both a mother and a clan leader. As a working mother, I can empathize with her torn loyalties and angst about trying to be great at both. The plot of the series shows how the clan matures and comes together when tragedy strikes. It also continues exploring the clan's struggles to maintain unity with daylight warriors (half warrior, half kittypet) as part of the clan. It's a fast read and the illustrations are very good. Our youngest really enjoyed reading this book and we are both looking forward to reading the last of the Warriors Manga graphic novels. We hope that more of these stories are published soon.

It certainly doesn't get any easier when the Clan cats living in the gorge find themselves facing a long and scorching summer. Moreover, Sol, a newcomer to SkyClan, is eager for his leader to make him a warrior. But Leafstar doesn't believe he'll be ready until he proves his loyalty to and respect for the warrior code. And if he ultimately can't, what will that mean for both SkyClan and Leafstar? Story/Writing: Ever since I finished the first part of the "SkyClan and the Stranger" trilogy, "The Rescue," I was more than eager to read the second part. And not only did I find it as good as the first volume, in some ways the second one was even better! Mostly because there were things in it that I didn't really see coming. Then again, I probably would've if there'd been an author's note in the beginning. They have those at the beginning of the individual volumes, but I got the trilogy in a pack, and for some reason it doesn't have the author's notes. Anyway, I found it after I finished this, and I liked how the authors called back to how Bluestar was ultimately forced to give up her kits in order to become deputy of ThunderClan, and how they were comparing that to Leafstar's situation. But I also like that, just as they don't put in any double standards about medicine cats having mates and kits – when it comes to gender, anyway – neither do they put any in this case either. Firestar and other male leaders in the series have had kits. So why shouldn't female leaders be allowed to have kits as well? Yes, I know, females are a bit more limited by their biology, but still. That said, I do know that Bluestar didn't just give up her kits simply to become deputy, but to stop Thistleclaw from becoming deputy. Leafstar's situation is much more ideal. But moving on, I once again love how organic life in the Clan feels. The cats have to deal with things I suspect most of us wouldn't think of, yet feel completely natural. I just love how detailed this world is. Artwork: Speaking of detail, as always, the artwork is fantastic. And the color really does bring out more details than the usual black-and-white would. I like the way the colors are used to really convey and remind of us of the fact that these cats live in a gorge, an exposed area that's not exactly an ideal place to live in during extreme weather. I also liked the way the flashback sequence into Sol's past used these drab and diluted and depressing colors. Not just because it's a flashback sequence but because it really matches the mood of the story Sol is telling to Leafstar. It makes it both look and feel dirty and unappealing. Once I got past the sequence it felt like a relief to get back to the bright and vibrant colors of present-day SkyClan. Leafstar – If there's anything that Leafstar has shown me through this story, it's that animals tend to be better working moms than most people are! By that I don't just mean hunting for her kits. She has to look out for them as well as her Clanmates. But of course, for any working mother, that's not always easy. If anything, as SkyClan's leader, her Clanmates are like an extra set of kits. Anyway, it's clear though that she was prepared for a challenge like this, probably as much as she's been for any other challenge. But there's also the matter of Sol. And this is where I think Leafstar once again proves why she's the leader of this Clan. She's moved by Sol's story, but she doesn't use that or his simple (or not so simple) desire to be a warrior as an excuse to make him one. Various Other Characters – Speaking of Sol, man am I glad we got to see more of him in this! At first, he seems to be just an unruly and undermining cat…which he remains to the end. But we also get his backstory. And not only was I not expecting any backstory at all, I was especially not expecting this kind. If he and his family were people, they'd probably be in severe poverty (if not homeless) and maybe even on welfare. And while I don't think Sol's father was exactly right to leave Sol's mother, I can't say I blame him, given how unbearably complaintful she was. I also won't say whether or not Cinders did the right thing by leaving Sol and his siblings at Twoleg houses, 'cause Sol himself said she didn't want them to begin with. And yet, while this backstory is certainly heartbreaking, something in me doubts Sol is telling the truth. Even if he is, one can have a tragic backstory and still be a villain. I did think it was interesting though that Sol complains the same way his mother did when Leafstar refuses to make him a warrior. It made for an intriguing parallel. Probably my other favorite character though is Billystorm! Leafstar has shown as much great wisdom in choosing a mate and father for her kits as she's done in leading her Clan. Billystorm to me is one of the sweetest toms in the series! He really reminds me of Micah from "Moth Flight's Vision." Just always supportive and always willing to be there for his love. He may be a daylight-warrior, but he has the heart of a wholly Clan cat! Overall: I was very intrigued and invested in this story, especially when I got to when Sol tells his backstory. It kept me guessing and curious all the way through, and I can't wait to see what becomes of all these great characters at the end of volume three!

    Times are hard for Leafstar leader of Skyclan with three of her own young kits and leading the clan. Sol who wanted to became a Skyclan cat has caused some trouble in the clan, leading two foxes to the camp and wanting training. Also the biggest problem Leafstar has faced: a giant flood comes to the camp killing elder Linchenfur, after a huge storm. I'm defiantly going to read the next book as I was left hanging wanting to find out what happens next.

    SkyClan has a new member, Sol, a kittypet who's chosen to join them. We get his backstory and it's SO SAD! And Greenleaf heat has set tempers ablaze as food becomes scarce. The job of clan leader is a tough one, especially when one cat is breaking the warrior code. And if the cover didn't give it away, there's a lot of danger living as a warrior. This series has 3 volumes. SkyClan has a new member, Sol, a kittypet who's chosen to join them. We get his backstory and it's SO SAD! And Greenleaf heat has set tempers ablaze as food becomes scarce.

    There was the development of backstory for one of the antagonists in the main series in this book, but while it gave them some depth, I still don't really understand the character enough. I also found the ending kind of...meh.

The heat is intense and the prey is hiding during the day prompting the cats to try hunting at dusk and dawn but then they start to run afoul of foxes and badgers who hunt at that time. Sol finds a way of getting prey, stealing it from the foxes! Of course that's terrible and Leafstar forbids it when she finds out, however the foxes still come and attack the gorge.

Meanwhile Leafstar has been having difficulties, torn between her kits needs and her duties to her clan and Lichenfur had been one of her greatest helpers. Leafstar takes over Sol's training after he tells her about his difficult childhood and his mother who told stories of skyclan cats and thus his great desire to become a warrior.
