After the sharp-eyed Jay and the roaring Lion, peace will come on Dove's gentle wing.

Three ThunderClan cats, Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Dovepaw, are prophesied to hold the power of the stars in their paws. Now they must work together to unravel the meaning behind the ancient words of the prophecy.

As Jayfeather tackles his new responsibilities as the Clan's sole medicine cat and Lionblaze trains his apprentice in the ways of the warrior cats, Dovepaw hones her own unique ability and tries to use it for the good of ThunderClan. But the dark shadows that have preyed on the Clan for many moons still lurk just beyond the forest. Soon a mysterious visitor will walk in one cat's dreams, whispering promises of greatness, with results that will change the future of ThunderClan in ways that no cat could have foreseen.

    " The Dark Forest is slowly rising, training warriors, and making fake signs that lead to bloodshed. Starclan must get ready for the battle that is already brewing. To tell the truth, I don't understand why would they fight. Dark Forest fight for what? Revenge on what they did to them due to what they themselves did? Have power over dead cats? it's all meaningless, maybe the Dark Forest warriors should admit that they can never get what they want, for they are dead, and the power of Starclan is endless. "

    " In the 2nd book from the Omen of the Stars mini-series, we find DovePaw now certain that she is the 3rd cat of the prophecy : ''After the sharp-eyed Jay and the roaring Lion, peace will come...on a Dove's wing.' Together with JayFeather & LionBlaze, they set out to discover what exactly the prophecy is alluding to, and how they can work together to fulfill it the the best of their abilities. There is a very intriguing twist seemingly on the horizon of this series though; the cats of the Dark Forest seem to be training for a battle under the tutelage of who else, but TigerStar. But these cats are already dead, what use could they possibly have for training for a battle? In 'Fading Echoes, we discover that much like he attempted to manipulate his son BrambleClaw in 'The New Prophecy' and then LionBlaze in 'PO3', TigerClaw has been visiting certain cats in their dreams, to manipulate them for his own devious plans. He chooses cats with scores to settle, like BreezePelt, or his kin, like with TigerHeart...but as we begin to learn no cat is off limits for TigerStar. The cover of the book depicts IvyPaw, DovePaw's sister. IvyPaw is noticing that her siser is being treated differently around the camp, however she isn't aware that this is because DovePaw is part of any prophecy. IvyPaw feels her sister is a favorite, of the clan leader, and other senior cats, and she becomes jealous. TigerStar obviously sees this as a perfect weakness, for a cat so well placed in ThunderClan. He sends HawkFrost to begin walking in her dreams, and we get to see just how good the cats of the dark forest are at deception and manipulation to accomplish their means. JayFeather for his part actually visits the DarkForest, with StarClan cats YellowFang and SpottedLeaf in an attempt to discover what TigerStar is up to. JayFeather is convinced the cats of the Dark Forest will rise up eventually and force a battle between the clan cats, and I believe he's right...thinking this is an ideal way to build up suspense till the ending of this final Warriors series. I also think, as I have previously mentioned in my review of 'Sunrise' the final PO3 book, that we haven't seen the last of JayFeather's and LionBlaze's sister HollyLeaf...they seem to be bringing her up more and more through as the OOTS series progresses, though they never refer to her as dead...only disappeared on as having 'left' ThunderClan. I did enjoy reading about LionBlaze & JayFeather mourning her, missing her, and generally just coming to grips with their loss. They are gaining perspective on the whole thing, much as we do in real life when faced with a loss. Their understanding of it is helping me realize things I overlooked when initially discovering the shocking events at the end of 'Sunrise'. Like how she really never did fit in with the prophecy, having no special powers, left her lost, excluded and very resentful. Nevertheless, she was their sister, and she was astute and compassionate and her own special qualities were a needed balance and voice of reason for the remaining two brothers. Still loving this whole series, it's unbelievably addictive and compelling, cleverly written and always leaves the reader wanting more! "

    " Tyler said there are so many books it is hard to talk about them individually. He said like all the others, it was a great book. This is his second favorite series. His first being the Chronicle of Ancient Darkness by Michelle Paver. "

    " One of the better ones of the Warriors series, and once again Dovepaw is the best character, well besides Jayfeather. His cynicism and sharp wit just makes me love him more. This is definitely a book to read again. Heh, I borrowed it from my friend and I kind of want to buy it now. "

    " I read a lot of these books in the 5th grade, and it just seems to me that after the 1st series, Erin Hunter's writing started to drop on the quality. All of the books are kind of the same... after a while, you want something new.It wasn't BAD or anything, but I was like, "not AGAIN!". "

    " This was a huge improvement over the first book and it was more like the other Warriors books. In the first book, the cats went to unlock a river. In this one, cats from the past are creating trouble for cats of the present. This one had a good storyline and a good, short battle at the end. "
