The first and original series in Warriors, a series of fantasy books about wild cats. Warriors was the title of the six-book series. It has been followed up with two more six-book series following on from the original, Warriors: The New Prophecy, and Warriors: Power of Three.

The series follows a domesticated flame coloured kitten named Rusty who has strange dreams about life in the forest. Against the warnings of his friend, Smudge, Rusty ventures into the forest, where he is attacked by another cat, later identified as Graypaw. As the fight settles, Rusty is invited to join ThunderClan, one of many warring cat clans. Rusty accepts, leaving his owners behind. Many trials and tribulations lie ahead for Rusty - not least of which is his problem that the other cats won't accept him, as he is not clan born. Renamed Firepaw, he starts off on his journey as a clan cat...
