George R. R. Martin, from his introduction to Warriors:

“People have been telling stories about warriors for as long as they have been telling stories. Since Homer first sang the wrath of Achilles and the ancient Sumerians set down their tales of Gilgamesh, warriors, soldiers, and fighters have fascinated us; they are a part of every culture, every literary tradition, every genre. All Quiet on the Western Front, From Here to Eternity, and The Red Badge of Courage have become part of our literary canon, taught in classrooms all around the country and the world.

“Our contributors make up an all-star line-up of award-winning and bestselling writers, representing a dozen different publishers and as many genres. We asked each of them for the same thing—a story about a warrior. Some chose to write in the genre they’re best known for. Some decided to try something different. You will find warriors of every shape, size, and color in these pages, warriors from every epoch of human history, from yesterday and today and tomorrow, and from worlds that never were. Some of the stories will make you sad, some will make you laugh, and many will keep you on the edge of your seat.”

Every story in this volume appears here for the first time. Included are: a long novella from the world of his Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin, a new tale of “Lord John” by Diana Gabaldon, an “Emberverse” story by S. M. Stirling, a “Forever Peace” story by Joe Haldeman, and a long tale of humanity at bay by David Weber. Also present are original stories by David Ball, Peter S. Beagle, Lawrence Block, Gardner Dozois, Robin Hobb, Cecelia Holland, Joe R. Lansdale, David Morrell, Naomi Novik, James Rollins, Steven Saylor, Robert Silverberg, Carrie Vaughn, Howard Waldrop, and Tad Williams. Many of these writers are bestsellers. All of them are storytellers of the highest quality. Together they make a volume of unforgettable listening.

    " It was a great book! I loved it and it is now my favourite of the series. It is my favourtie because when Gray Wing decides to live on the moorland I knew he was going to make WindClan. My favourite character is Jagged Peak because he experiences life in the cavern, Clear Sky's Place and Gray Wing's Place and he faces it with courage. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Freps | 1/19/2014

    " Not the greatest even though Jagged Peak is so awesome. Still good though! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sparrowwing | 1/8/2014

    " This book was amazing! I can't wait for the next one! There are so many connections to the main series just in this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alan | 12/20/2013

    " An Amazing book for the dawn of the clans so far. Though Still un happy they made this series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John The Totally Awesome | 12/9/2013

    " This is the worst idea for a book EVER! Hunter is obviously out of ideas. Wasn't four miniature serieses enough? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 AJ | 11/14/2013

    " One of the better Warrior books, this is going to be a good series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keeba Kee | 10/25/2013

    " I thought that this is a great kickoff to a new series of Warriors! I was very sad when certain cats died, and I thought Gray Wing is a strong protagonist. You end up feeling so much pity for him because he loses so much in this book. I can't wait to read the next book in this new series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darkened Warrior | 5/31/2013

    " Currently reading this book. I love how its about the tribes. Although I would like what happened after the battle with the dark forest. That would be epic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 4/4/2013

    " Of course, because it is one of the Warriors books, I REALLY liked it, and I give it 4.5 stars. I am also happy that the authors are going back to the beginning of the series. (it is kind of like a series of prequels to the series) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taylor | 3/29/2013

    " IT LOOKS AMAZING CANT WAIT TO READ IT!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gmet | 5/26/2012

    " This was great! I love that I can know how the Clans started! Erin Hunter is a great author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mikaela | 5/12/2012

    " Of course, Im biased, and love everything by Erin Hunter, but The Sun Trail was a great book. It allows a deep conflict between brothers to slowly grow, and leads nicely into a second book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sea | 5/8/2012

    " It was such a good book, it made me cry, it made me happy, I felt like killing some cats but it was nice emotions and decently a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chloe | 4/13/2012

    " At first, I was certain I wouldn't like it, but it was excellent! Gray Pool is so oblivious, Turtle Tail is obviously into him, and he goes aroung talking about Storm to her all the time! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Skylasha | 2/21/2012

    " Awesome,best warrior book yet! "

    " What a wonderful way to start the fifth arc of the wonderful Warriors series! So much wonderfulness I could burst! So many wonderful kitties, Thunder, Gray Wing, Jagged Peak. Clear Sky can go die in a freaking hole! I need the next book now!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darin | 5/13/2011

    " Only one short story was weak, "The King of Norway". It was kind of run of the mill. I didn't like the characters and didn't care about what was going to happen next. The other stories were so good that it made up for the one weak one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bibliophile | 5/12/2011

    " Mostly just reading for GRRM Martin's "Hedge Knight" novella, though the stories by Saylor and Hobb (about ancient Rome and Carthage) were good too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 4/11/2011

    " It's taken me a while to get through this, what with one thing and another!

    But....on the whole enjoyed them all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shanyn | 4/5/2011

    " Have only read Lord John and the Custom of the Army short story of this anthology.
    5/23 These short stories are centered around the theme of war and warriors- not really my thing, but I am enjoying breaking up longer reads with some short stories. Liked Songs of Love and Death better... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 2/27/2011

    " Not to split hairs, but only some of the stories are about warriors. That being said, another good collection of short stories and novellas.

    I Loved the third installment of Hedge Knight, The Mystery Knight. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherdnerd | 2/15/2011

    " Only read one chapter in this anthology - a Lord John short story "The Custom of the Army" - and did enjoy it. Got this just for this story. I'll eventually get around to reading the others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 2/14/2011

    " I just got this from the library to read the "Lord John Grey" story in it by Diana Gabaldon, which was quite entertaining, with moments of excellent humor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 1/16/2011

    " The mix of stories in this anthology was really interesting. "
