Children's Books Wiki


Warriors is an action-packed series written by Victoria Holmes, Cherith Baldry, Kate Cary and Tui Sutherland under the pen-name, Erin Hunter. It follows four "Clans" of wild cats, living in close quarters, hunting and fighting for survival. Each Clan has defining characteristics: ThunderClan, who hunt in thick forest and undergrowth, RiverClan, who swim and catch fish, ShadowClan, the night-hunters, and WindClan, the quickest of all the Clans. Recurring themes in the series include friendship, often-forbidden romance, and belief in "StarClan". All four of the main Clans follow the "Warrior Code", a code of honour that leads the cats' life, and believe in "StarClan", their warrior ancestors.

Readers' Reviews[]


An wonderful series of books. I really enjoyed them, although I haven't yet read them all.


Absolutely amazing. I'm obsessed with them, and own every single one. Absolutely no profanity, and moderate violence. I recommend for any fantasy or animal lover.


Warriors is great for any animal-lover who has a box of tissues, as there are quite a few emotional deaths in this series. It's interesting and can be good for boys and girls, as the boys are usually drawn in by the fighting, though there isn't too much so that parents will worry that their kids are reading over-violent things. Draws you in after you keep reading.


Excellent series, very exciting. My only concern is that the author has an interest in astrology and standing stones which is a theme which comes across quite clearly in the books. However its only a story and read at that level its a good one.


Warrior cats is awesome! The only flaw is that if you don't read them in order, it ruins the whole series.The mangas or super editions are to be read last. But it's the greatest. Here is a picture for you:

Please add your review here. Amazing, greatest series I have ever read. Definitely recommended for animal lovers, especially cat lovers. When you read this book, you will start to spy on your pussy-cat for a while. I've only read the first book and I am just starting Fire and Ice, and to me it's already one if the best series I have ever read, with interesting names and personality between the world of warrior cats.
