    Lol another book, there are like almost 70 now haha. I liked this graphic novel a lot, I thought it was just going to be about Feathertail but I was thankfully wrong. This manga expands on how Feathertail feels being in Riverclan after the events of Tigerclan and the first arc. She feels uncomfortable around her clanmates who had in the past betrayed her trust. Because of this she cuts herself off from everyone except her brother Stormfur. But then Sasha comes alone with her kits and they enter Lol another book, there are like almost 70 now haha.

Feathertail becomes great friends with Sasha and their friendship is so wholesome to watch. Some things happen and Feathertail eventually learns to trust her clanmates. This graphic novel intertwined itself into the world of Warrior cats very well and I enjoyed it a lot. It also makes you think about her relationship with Crowfeather....... 😭 So ye I give this graphic novel a 3.6/5

    This book re broke my heart... and made certain events so much more heart breaking! But I enjoyed going back into early Clan days, made me very nostalgic ❤️ I love the art style in these books and it being in colour just adds so much to the story. I hope they make more because I can’t get enough!

    It's a decent book, and the characters are interesting, but Feathertail is so different! In this book, she is cold and keeps to herself all the time, but in the New Prophecy, she's completely different! I get that she changed by the end, but you'd think if she had an instinct to be questioning, she wouldn't lose that by having a change in opinion.

It's only when a rogue and her two kits join RiverClan that Feathertail begins a personal journey to find out where she truly belongs – one in which she'll have to confront the shadows behind, in front of, and within her. Story/Writing: Finally! After weeks of having to focus on other commitments, my review for this graphic novel is long overdue! But…better late than never, I guess. Anyway, man did it feel great to return to the world of "Warriors" after months of being away from it! It's funny in a way, 'cause I wasn't expecting this book to be as long as it was, but I'm also glad that it's the first graphic novel we've gotten in awhile – and in glorious, digital technicolor! And I can gladly say that, despite the eleven dollar price tag, it was worth every penny! From the first page I was engrossed in Feathertail's story – not least of which because I'm going to read "Graystripe's Vow" next. I will admit, I was a little taken aback at first when I found out how far back into the timeline the Erin Hunter team was going with this title (ten years by my estimate). But it's always great to visit old characters, like catching up with old friends! And once again, I've learned not to underestimate the talent of these authors! The script may have been penned by someone else, but the influence of the Erin Hunter writers clearly shows with every page! It has all the intensity, drama, and passionate yet masterful storytelling I've come to expect from this series. Even after having read all the books in the series (almost), there were still plenty of plot twists and turns that I did not see coming! Artwork: Honestly, I've always liked this particular style featured in the graphic novels, but as far as I'm concerned the artist(s) really stepped up their game here! The characters' facial expressions, their actions, and of course the excellent use of color really help you feel every emotion every character is feeling. Not only that, the battle scenes in particular got quite a bit more violent, at least from what I remember. It of course isn't too graphic, but we see characters bleed. More than once I flipped the page during a fight scene and my immediate reaction was "Oh man!" Hawkfrost (or Hawkpaw) is shown literally sinking his claws into a fox's eyes! My only teeny little gripe is that there are a few times where the characters are drawn doing human things, like crying or putting a paw on a cat's shoulder like we humans do with our hands. But that's a nitpick and when it's done, it's done well. In short, stunningly beautiful artwork worthy of this story! Feathertail – Now to characters! I will admit, when I first heard about this graphic novel and it's story, I was a bit skeptical. Feathertail after all has been gone for a long while in both the series' timeline and in real world time. And her story ended in a tragic but satisfying way. What else was there to tell? That said, she's always been a fan favorite, and it's not hard to see why! And I'm very pleased to say I was engrossed in Feathertail's story here from the first page – not least of which because I'm going to read "Graystripe's Vow" next. But besides that, it made me realize I'd never really thought until now the struggles she and her brother had to face. It's always hard being a half-Clan cat – if anything, it's kind of a given. But it's a whole other thing when your whole Clan and even your leader seem willing to sacrifice you to keep the illusion of peace. I felt for her all the way through – from her resentment toward her hypocritical leader, her bitterness toward her Clanmates to the point where she's willing to fight them to defend Ferncloud, to her envy at how fast her Clanmates accept Sasha and her kits, to her anger at Sasha when the latter reveals her relationship with Tigerstar. And yet for all her faults, she retains the honor of a warrior, half-Clan or otherwise. She's a fighter, in and out of battle. Even after she learns Tigerstar fathered Hawkfrost and Mothwing, she refuses to judge them by his actions – even as she remains rightfully and unfortunately wary of Hawkfrost. And even though she ends her friendship with Sasha over her secret, she promises to keep it for the sake of her kits. When faced with evidence that RiverClan and especially its leader have changed, she humbly admits she was in the wrong and forgives them. And despite her friendship with Ferncloud, she firmly – but not meanly – warns her of the consequences regarding prey leaving one territory for another. You feel like you're following her on this journey and by the end of it – when she receives her life-changing vision from Oakheart that spurs the "New Prophecy" arc – she's grown so much…even if there's a bit of a layer of bitter-sweetness if you know her fate after this story. Various Other Characters – First, I'll discuss Leopardstar. I loved how much she was featured in this story – probably because the recently announced fourteenth super edition will be about her. I also loved how her rocky relationship with Feathertail is the main crux of the story. She may come off as a bit hypocritical early on, but at the end of the day, there's no doubt she'd give every one of her nine lives to protect her Clan. One of the most heartwarming yet heartbreaking moments is when she, Feathertail, Stormfur, and Hawkpaw find the fox that attacked RiverClan. The fox has her pinned down, she's already badly hurt, yet she tearfully implores her Clanmates to run to safety – and that of course spurs Feathertail on to fight the fox instead. Even in the aftermath, she continues to put her Clanmates above herself despite being the most wounded. I felt for Sasha as well. It's baffling how she can continue to love Tigerstar even after she found out how depraved he was. That said, she made the smart decision by leaving him. And it's obvious that she loves her kits and wants nothing but the best for them – even if their place of refuge could prove dangerous should the truth of their origins get out. I really liked her friendship with Feathertail, even though I knew the truth about her relationship with Tigerstar would inevitably come out. Even if she still loves him to some degree, she doesn't deny his cruelty and the torment he caused Feathertail, nor does she want her kits to be judged for what he did. Speaking of which, I loved Feathertail's relationships with her remaining family, by which I of course mean Stormfur and Graystripe. I liked how Stormfur's personality provided a stark contrast to his sister. He's made his peace and forgiven his Clanmates, and he encourages Feathertail to do the same – though it is a little bittersweet knowing he eventually leaves RiverClan for the Tribe of Rushing Water. Still, he's always looking out for her to the point where he joins the patrol to find the fox just because she does. And one of my favorite scenes is when Graystripe tells Feathertail that she'll always be welcome in ThunderClan. You can tell how much he loves both her and Stormfur. And even though he may wish for them to be in ThunderClan with him, he's happier and prouder knowing both his kits have grown to be fine warriors. Overall: Whether you're new to or familiar with this amazing series, this graphic novel provides an emotionally sweeping story I didn't know I wanted! The artwork alone is worth the price! The characters are engaging, the dramatic moments hit hard, and the influence of the Erin Hunter team shines through! Pick it up if you haven't already!

    I don't read these graphic novels for the story, I read them for the art. To date, this is the most aesthetically pleasing Warriors graphic novel I have ever read. From the cover alone, you can see the amazing colour palette they use and the cute art style that fits in perfectly with the tone of the story.

    Feathertail is one of my favorite cats and I’m so happy we got her perspective! Her characterization is stunning and I love how we get to see a rougher side of her. I also love a good redemption arc and Leopardstar’s is one of my favorites. Also it’s so nice to know that Sasha and Feathertail were friends. Overall very good.

    A story from when the clans were still in the forest. This book is told from Feathertail's point of view. It covers Tigerstar's defeat (briefly), Sasha and her kits coming to Riverclan, and Feathertail's difficulty deciding where she belongs. The story ends with Feathertail being informed of the prophecy. She ultimately determines who she is and where she belongs. A story from when the clans were still in the forest.

    I read this book in one sitting, and just couldn't stop! It was a manga about Feathertail, and how she had to work out her differences to fit into Riverclan. It was sad, but I loved it.

    I haven't read The Prophecies Begin in a long time but have been listening to a podcast about it and revisiting it as an adult made me fully realise that a lot went unresolved. How did Mistyfoot, Stormfur, and Feathertail make peace with Leopardstar and their Clan so easily after everything that happened to them? The answer is, they didn't - at least not all of them.

How did Mistyfoot, Stormfur, and Feathertail make peace with Leopardstar and their Clan so easily after everything that happened to them? The answer is, they didn't - at least not all of them. Feathertail was the perfect character to explore this with. Due to her fate in The New Prophecy and the fact that we don't get a POV for her (in spite of her being one of the chosen cats as well as having a forbidden romance storyline), she always came across as nothing more than a sweet 'good' cat. I didn't dislike her, because there was nothing to really dislike her for. She was perfectly inoffensive. Here - she's sad, cold, standoffish, and she holds grudges ... and I don't for a second blame her for it, though the way she (view spoiler)[ ended her friendship with Sasha broke my heart (hide spoiler)] , because it's so justified. I would have liked it if Stormfur was fleshed out a little more. It doesn't really bother me as much, because we see so much more of Stormfur throughout the series, but I felt there was space for him and Feathertail to have an open conversation about how they were coping - a clear acknowledgement from him that he hadn't forgiven everything, but he was choosing to focus on immersing himself in River Clan to move on, and maybe so people wouldn't question his loyalty etc). It seems strange to characterise him as loving River Clan and his life there, and being popular with the Clan, when he leaves the Clan in TNP after Feathertail dies, as though she was the main thing keeping him there. He leaves them again in POT with little to no angst about it. As it stands it's just a little hard to reconcile the two iterations of his character.

Now, for the story itself, it was really pleasant to read from the perspective of a RiverClan cat, especially from Feathertail, as we didn’t see enough of her during The New Prophecy. She seemed out of character at times but I think it’s understandable because of her situation, though it could be a bit annoying. However, I loved that we got to see her friendships and relationships, and to know how she felt about the events of the first series. I also liked the themes of forgiveness and letting go which are touched upon in this manga, and I am glad Leopardstar got her very needed redemption. It was well done and I truly felt what the characters were facing. Overall, this was a lot of fun to read! It made me consider reading the rest of the mangas and made me appreciate RiverClan more.

    I did not think I was going to read another Warriors book after The Last Hope came out on April 3rd, 2012, but here I am exactly nine years later, reviewing a Warriors graphic novel. I am happy to say that A Shadow in Riverclan was incredible and reminded me of everything I love about the vicious series that made me afraid of cats as a child. Fans of the Warriors series will not be disappointed by the big themes this novel tackles and the heart this book possesses. What I enjoyed: -This novel has I did not think I was going to read another Warriors book after The Last Hope came out on April 3rd, 2012, but here I am exactly nine years later, reviewing a Warriors graphic novel.

Fans of the Warriors series will not be disappointed by the big themes this novel tackles and the heart this book possesses. What I enjoyed: -This novel has so much to say about forgiveness and what it means to forgive someone who has harmed you in the past. I appreciated how this book never shamed the main character for struggling to forgive their former abuser, but more highlighted the importance of letting go of anger in order to move on and acknowledge when someone is truly making an effort to change. This portrayal of forgiveness is a difficult balance to achieve, especially in stories targeted at a younger audience, but the author managed to convey this nuanced perspective impressively. -The art is wonderful. Emotions are exhibited so clearly and the backgrounds were absolutely gorgeous. I loved reading a Warriors graphic novel in full color. From what I remember, most of the previous manga were black-and-white, which is completely fine, but it is cool seeing a Warriors story in color. -The plot is well-paced and never felt too slow or fast. I remember reading the Avatar: The Last Airbender graphic novels and feeling disappointed by how rushed some of the story-lines felt. This graphic novel did a good job quickly setting up an intriguing plot and then branching out from there in an entertaining and riveting way. What I thought could be better: -This is a general issue with the whole Warriors series, but it was definitely difficult here. I had a hard time figuring out which character was which and some characters who do have multiple scenes aren't even named, which made the story a bit confusing to follow at times. Overall, A Shadow in Riverclan is a wonderful read that will excite all Warriors fans, whether old or new. I highly recommend giving this graphic novel a try. After reading this book, I am looking forward to reading any future Warriors graphic novel.

    I've been reading and loving this series for ten years now and I'm still happy about every new book that is released up until this day. Even if this one isn't exactly brand new anymore (because at first, I had the stupid idea that I could wait for the German-language edition so that the collection of the “Warrior Cats” comic books would look more uniform, but that took too long for me, especially after I've heard a lot of good stuff about it). The book has really beautiful pictures once again and I've been reading and loving this series for ten years now and I'm still happy about every new book that is released up until this day.

The book has really beautiful pictures once again and the fact that they are printed in colour only makes it all the better (I did not expect that, when the book arrived and was positively surprised). The pictures looked great and the territory of the RiverClan was displayed in a fantastic way, which, for me, is a nice addition with more details to this huge world of the clans. The story itself has an interesting point of conflict that has also been very well addressed. The books are all intended for younger readers, but I generally like about this series that it doesn't shy away from a more serious or gloomy tone. Feathertail herself is a classic favourite of the second series of books, but she was never really developed very deeply (she was still not a flat book character, but she was just never fully the focus), which is now changing here. I like that very much, because this expansion was good for her. Then there is the setting. First of all, it was long overdue for RiverClan to be a little more in focus again, even if it does not take place during the current seventh series. Secondly, it's a real nostalgic kick for me, because it takes place between series one and two and therefore logically also addresses the topics of these series and I felt like I was transported back to ten years ago. Therefore, this additional comic is not the right one for a newcomer to start with the series, but it fits perfectly between the first and second season without being spoiled. All in all, I can only recommend the book. For me, as a huge fan of the series, this comic is a really nice addition to all the books and for me it is further proof that the series still shows potential and also uses it for new additions even after so many years (the fact that I read it within around 30 minutes proves this as well). I give it five stars.

(I'd consider them graphic novels, but some of the older ones were referred to as manga.) I am also happy to see more RiverClan. I feel like this is the clan that gets neglected the most. This book kind of gives Leopardstar a redemption arc, which is interesting. She was definitely not a saint of a leader. We also get to see little Hawkpaw and Mothpaw training as apprentices. This graphic novel is about Feathertail, who is a main character in the second Warriors series. This graphic novel takes place before the second series, but after the time that she and her brother were sentenced to death by Tigerstar with Leopardstar standing by. The graphic novel highlights Feathertail's inner turmoil after this traumatic experience and shows her journey of self discovery. I really enjoyed it. This was not the graphic novel that I though that we would get, but I did really enjoy it. I'm knocking off a star because the graphic novel did seem to be a bit out of character from some characters, most noticeably Feathertail and Stormfur. They act quite different in the second series and the 180 shift that Feathertail apparently went through between series 1 and series 2 seems slightly far fetched to me. Overall, I'm happy with it and enjoyed the read.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Easily the best warrior cats manga I've ever read, and one of the best books that I've ever read. Seeing any character recovering from a traumatic and horrifying event in the way that was executed in this book is very impressive. Not a lot of people can write such difficult topics with the respect and maturity that this book did. Also, I appreciated Feathertail's resent towards Leopardstar being shown over the course of the book, and Leopardstar's actions and words breaking the ice in her heart.

To go to hell and back for RiverClan, and still be willing to die for them? There'll never be a RiverClan warrior quite like Feathertail. As a side-note, a lot of the new warrior cat books have gone to shit in quality. If they could just use this book as a role model for the emotional depth required to strike a chord within their readers, the series can return to its former glory. Maybe become even better than it was before. Thank you, writers and illustrators alike, for giving me a book that brought me to tears several times over, and giving me a book where I can truly see the best that the Warrior Cats Universe can offer.

    I was glad to see another side of Feathertail which was depicted accurately according to her personality and to the events during that timeframe. The manga really expanded on Feathertail’s feelings about where she belongs and her perception of her own past and her leader. It was really realistic and not boring at all.

It’s so sad that her life ended so quickly, however, I believe it worked out for her because if she had lived, her loyalties would have been torn again because of her love for Crowfeather; making it impossible for her to stay loyal to one clan. Thus making her life more difficult and depressed. Anyway, this was a nice manga. Excited for the next one!

    Its crazy to think how long its been since the last manga. This one is Feathertail before she went on her journey, during a time when they are trying to rebuild after Tigerstar. Feathertail feels like she doesn't belong in Riverclan anymore, she feels like she can't be a part of the clan and closes herself off from them. When she meets Sasha, things begin to change and she finds a friend she can speak too who has lived outside the clan. That's what this is showing us. The artwork is amazing and Its crazy to think how long its been since the last manga.

The artwork is amazing and the storyline feels like you are reading the normal novels. I'm glad they are bringing this back and giving us side stories from a perspective we would of never thought about.

    SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I re-read this book yesterday, and it it one of my favorites. It is very interesting to see Feathertail after the BloodClan battle, getting to see her emotions, and how even just the memory of Tigerstar haunts her every move. Then, when Sasha, Moth (Mothwing), and Hawk (Hawkfrost), join the Clan, Feathertail tries to look past what her Clanmates did to her. But when Sasha reveals that Tigerstar was the father of her kits, Feathertail isolates herself more tha SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was looking forward to a new Warriors Manga, and this did NOT disappoint. A LITTLE BIT OF BACKSTORY: As one of the fans who came to the books when Dawn Of The Clans was coming out, I'd never been around for a new manga. I'm so glad this one was made though. I wasn't initially excited at the premise, but I decided to read it because I read any Warriors book, and I was hungry for new content. THIS BOOK WAS SO FREAKING GOOD. I love how they finally added the last little bit of development for I was looking forward to a new Warriors Manga, and this did NOT disappoint.

I love how they finally added the last little bit of development for Leopardstar, and it was nice seeing Sasha again and getting a little more about her, seeing as Mothwing got her own novella, and Hawkfrost was one of the main villains in the series. Feathertail as a protagonist was very cool, and I loved seeing her get more confident and get her arc that she honestly deserved. I feel like Feathertail didn't get enough during the few books she was in, so it was cool to see how complex her character was in the end. It makes me feel more sad about her death then I did before. Overall, great manga. Probably going to reread at some point.

    This. Was. BEAUTIFUL. I can of express how much I loved this manga. I was lucky to obtain a brand new, hardback edition from my local library, and I really don’t want to return it! Feathertail blushing at Ferncloud and Sasha was beautiful, I never even considered these as ships at all, but her relationships were so deep and full of emotion. I never liked Leopardstar, so I was able to sympathize with Feathertail all the way through. Her process or forgiveness of this character was very similar to This. Was. BEAUTIFUL.

    This was so good! i have read all Warriors comics except for the Skyclan series, and i have to say that this is probably the best out of them. It shows a side of Feathertail, a minor character in my opinion, and what she did before she is later a protagonist in the second series. The books touch up a lot on the cats' feelings, and what these events have done to them. Its a great touch on depression in the books, and makes you feel closer/relating more to an important character.

    I loved this book! It really lets us see a different side of feathertail, and of most of the characters. Through relationship with others, we can see why she was always so nice to crowpaw. It also made me not hate leopardstar as much. But one question i still have is who is in the reflection on the cover. I thought it was hawkfrost, but hes brown not gray, and feathertail is mostly mad at leopardstar.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I enjoyed this novella/manga very, very much. I never realized just how much I am like Feathertail, at least before the whole journey with Brambleclaw and the others. I really liked getting to see deeper into her character and learning about her insecurities and the growth she had to go through before she became the cat who sacrificed herself for the Clans and the Tribe. Also, the art is absolutely beautiful. By far the best James L. Barry has done so far.

    Feathertail was one of my favourite characters when I read Warriors as a kid but I found her a little one-dimensional now I've reread them as a young adult. However, this manga, alongside having gorgeous artwork, added so much personal depth to her. All of her behaviour is pretty justified and realistic and Leopardstar actually gets the development she never got in the original series but needed. This was thoroughly enjoyable to read.
