There will be three, kin of your kin...

The wild cats have flourished in their new home on the banks of the lake for several seasons, and the Clans are growing strong and healthy with new kits. The time has come for three kits of ThunderClan to become apprentices.

Hollypaw, Jaypaw, and Lionpaw spring from a strong legacy: children of Squirrelflight and Brambleclaw, two of the noblest ThunderClan warriors, and grandchildren of the great leader Firestar himself. All three young cats possess unusual power and talent and seem certain to provide strength to the Clan for the next generation.

But there are dark secrets around the three, and a mysterious prophecy hints at trouble to come. An undercurrent of rage is rising against those who are not Clanborn, and the warrior code is in danger of being washed away by a river of blood. All the young cats' strength will be needed if the Clans are to survive.

...who hold the power of the stars in their paws.

Read an Excerpt

Warriors: Power of Three #1: The Sight (PLM)

Chapter One

Leaves brushed Jaykit's pelt like falling snow. More crackled underpaw, stiff with frost and so deep that he struggled with every step. An icy wind pierced his fur—still nursery soft—and made him shiver.

"Wait for me!" he wailed. He could hear his mother's voice ahead, her warm body always a few steps out of reach.

"You'll never catch it!"

A high-pitched mew sliced into his dream, and Jaykit woke with a start. He pricked his ears, listening to the familiar sounds of the bramble nursery. His sister and brother scrabbling in play. Ferncloud lapping her dozing kits. There was no snow now; he was in the camp, safe and warm. He could smell his mother's nest, empty but still fresh with her scent.

"Oof!" He let out a gasp of surprise as his sister, Hollykit, landed heavily on top of him. "Watch out!"

"You're awake at last!" She rolled off him and pushed her hind paws into his flank. With a leap, she twisted away and grasped for something just out of reach.

Mouse! Jaykit could smell it. His brother and sister must be playing catch with fresh-kill newly brought into camp. He sprang to his paws and gave a quick stretch that sent a shiver through his small body.

"Catch this, Jaykit!" Hollykit mewed. The mouse whistled past his ear.

"Slow slug!" she teased as he turned too late to grab it.

"I've got it!" Lionkit called. He pounced on the fresh-kill, his paws thudding on the nursery's packed earth floor.

Jaykit wasn't going to let his brother steal the prize from him so easily. He might be thesmallest in the litter, but he was fast. He leaped toward Lionkit, knocking him out of the way and stretching his forepaw to reach for the mouse.

He landed in a clumsy skid and rolled over, feeling a jolt of alarm as he realized it wasn't moss underneath him, but the squirming warmth of Ferncloud's two tiny kits. Ferncloud gave him a shove, pushing him away with her hind paws.

Jaykit gasped. "Have I hurt them?"

"Of course not," Ferncloud snapped. "You're too small to squash a flea!" Foxkit and Icekit mewled as she tucked them closer into her belly. "But you three are getting too rough for the nursery!"

"Sorry, Ferncloud," Hollykit mewed.

"Sorry," Jaykit echoed, apologetic even though Ferncloud's comment on his size had stung him. At least the queen's anger would not last. She would easily forgive kits she had suckled—when Squirrelflight's milk had not come, it was Ferncloud who had fed Jaykit, Hollykit, and Lionkit in the moons before Foxkit and Icekit were born.

"It's about time Firestar made you apprentices and moved you to the apprentice den," Ferncloud meowed.

"If only." Lionkit sighed.

"It won't be long," Hollykit pointed out. "We're almost six moons old."

Jaykit felt the familiar surge of excitement as he imagined becoming an apprentice warrior. He couldn't wait to begin his training. But without even seeing Ferncloud's face, he could sense the flicker of doubt that prickled through the queen's pelt and knew that she was looking at him with pity in her eyes. His fur bristled with frustration—he was just as ready to become an apprentice as Hollykit and Lionkit!

Ferncloud answered Hollykit, unaware that Jaykit had sensed her moment of unease. "Well, you're not six moons yet! And until you are, you can do your playing outside!" she ordered.

"Yes, Ferncloud," Lionkit replied meekly.

"Come on, Jaykit," Hollykit called. "Bring the mouse with you." The branches of the bramble bush rustled as she slid out through the nursery entrance.

Jaykit picked up the mouse delicately in his teeth. It was newly killed and soft, and he didn't want to make it bleed—they could have a good, clean game with it yet. With Lionkit close behind him, he scrabbled out after his sister. The barbs of the entrance tunnel clawed satisfyingly at his fur, sharp enough to tug at his pelt but not so sharp that they hurt.

Outside, the air smelled crisp and frosty. Firestar was sharing tongues with Sandstorm below Highledge. Dustpelt sat with them.

"We should be thinking about expanding the warriors' den," the dark tabby advised his leader. "It's crowded already, and Daisy and Sorreltail's kits won't be apprentices forever."

Nor will we! thought Jaykit.

Brightheart and Cloudtail were grooming each other in a pool of sunlight on the other side of the clearing. Jaykit could hear the steady lapping of their tongues like water dripping from a rain-soaked leaf. Like all the ThunderClan cats, their pelts were leaf-bare thick, but the muscles beneath had grown lean with scarce prey and hard hunting.

Hunger was not the only hardship leaf-bare had brought. Molepaw, one of Sorreltail's kits, had died of a cough that had not responded to Leafpool's herbs, and Rainwhisker had been killed during a storm, struck by a falling branch.

Brightheart paused from her washing. "How are you today, Jaykit?"

Jaykit placed the mouse between his paws, safe from Hollykit's grasp. "I'm fine, of course," he meowed. Why did Brightheart have to make such a fuss over him? He'd only been sleeping in the nursery, not out raiding ShadowClan territory! It was like she was always keeping her one good eye on him. Eager to prove he was just as strong as his brother and sister, Jaykit flung the mouse high over Hollykit's head.

As Lionkit thundered past him and grappled with Hollykit to be the first to catch it, Squirrelflight's voice sounded from the side of the nursery. "You should show more respect for your prey!" Their mother was busy pressing leaves into gaps in the prickly walls that surrounded the queens' den.

Daisy was helping her. "Kits will be kits," the white she-cat purred indulgently.

Jaykit's nostrils flared at Daisy's strange scent. It was different from the Clanborn cats', and some of the warriors still referred to her as a kittypet because she had once lived in the horseplace and eaten Twoleg food. Daisy wasn't a warrior, because she showed no sign that she ever wished to leave the nursery, but her kits Mousepaw, Hazelpaw, and Berrypaw were apprentices, and it seemed to Jaykit that they were as Clanborn as any of his Clanmates.

Erin Hunter's Warriors Power of Three had me on the edge of my seat. It had great twist and turns and will keep readers turning pages.

Looking for an exciting, fictional book that has adventure and action written on every page? In the book, Warriors: Power of the Three, The Sight, a group of wild cats living in the woods encounter many problems that they must overcome. The book mostly centers around three cats named Jaykit (Jaypaw later in the book), Hollykit (Hollypaw later in the book), and Lionkit (Lionpaw later in the book). Some things that the three cats might encounter are disability problems, cat vs. cat, and accepting your destiny. This book is for any age despite the age range and it deserves 5 stars. This book has everything that a great story should have such as excitement, adventure, action, and drama. There are no bad words in this book and no "contents" that are inappropriate to kids, however, there is little violence in the book. Overall, I think this book is appropriate for kids and I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read an exciting adventure story. No matter what age you are, this book will grip you in it's "claws" and will make you want to read page after page from beginning to end.

This series is great - especially if you are a cat lover like me. BUT, don't start reading with this one. You have GOT to start with the very first book in series 1 where Rusty gets re-named. Start there and read through all 6 then go on to the 2nd series of 6 and then the third. Each book entertwines with the next and if you do not start at book 1 you will not get the whole WONDERFUL story of the cats in these clans.

I started reading these over the past summer, and am now waiting for my mom to take me to the bookstore to buy Dark River. This book was excellent, and kept the spirit of the original Warriors series.

This book is probably one of the only warriors books that I would not rate as a five. The only reason for this is because, as I stated in the title, there was not enough action. The overall plot was belivable, and I liked that we can have the story from three perspectives instead of two (Stormfur or Brambleclaw or Squirrelpaw/flight and Leafpaw/pool) or one (Firepaw/heart/star). This lets us as the readers see Jaypaw, Lionpaw, and Hollypaw's different opinions. I dissagree that Squirrelpaw/flight's personality changed too much. She was just growing up steadily. Last but not least, I expect a great series from Erin Hunter, and many more to come.

No it's not true that Squirrelflight has kits with both Brambleclaw and Ashfur. I myself have read Sunset and in the back it tells of The Sight. The three kits of Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight are the main charactors, and each have some sort of power, ones that will heavily protect their Clans for that generation. Though, there is a danger approaching, one that rebels agaisnt all kittypets and unClanborn cats... and it's in their paws to stop it.

I personally love the Warriors series, and when Hunter made this book, I became more intrested.I have my friends reading these books. I'm in love with this series, and if you haven't read the New Prophercy before this, you might as wellread it because there are certain things in this book you won't understand if you don't read the New Prophercy

This is a great book that I happened to be able to read. So much twists and turns I must say! Jaypaw, Hollypaw, and Lionpaw are funny, interesting troublemakers that will keep you reading this book all summer. The mystery of the trail of Jaypaw's blindness and who will be warrior, who will be medicine cat and about their past just makes this book unputdownable! The cover art is wonderful and the descriptions just makes  you feel like a cat putting their paws down to the forest, next to Jaypaw, Hollypaw, and Lionpaw as they go through an adventure that no warrior could forget. Make sure to grab this book as quick as Windclan!
