Warriors: Omen of the Stars Box Set (Volumes 1 to 3)
by Erin Hunter
Ages 10+ Harpercollins September 2012 Paperback    

This box set collects the first three adventures in the series Warriors: Omen of the Stars. Collective author Erin Hunter (a pseudonym for Kate Cary, Tui Sutherland and Cherit Baldr) has a love for felines, the inspiration for writing these wonderful tales about cats. Here is a simple summary of the books:
"After the sharp-eyed jay and the roaring lion, peace will come on dove's gentle wing... It has been foretold that three ThunderClan cats--Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Dovepaw--will hold the power of the stars in their paws. Together, they must unravel the truth behind the ancient words of the prophecy. But the dark shadows that have preyed on the Clans for many moons still lurk just beyond the forest, determined to tear the four Clans apart. If the prophecy's meaning remains hidden, the warrior code could be destroyed forever."
These books track the tails of a quartet of wildcat clans: ThunderClan, ShadowClan, WindClan and Riverclan, as well as the long-forgotten fifth goup, the SkyClan.

The Warrior saga is aimed at readers aged 10 and up, but it will appeal to older kids as well. The writing is inventive and inspired and will do for cats what Watership Down did for rabbits.
