I honestly can’t see anyone in Thunderclan becoming leader. *SPOILER ALERT* totally seems like squirrelflight has been killed or taken to the dark forest *cries*, which makes me incredibly worried for Thunderclan bc Lionblaze seems too hotheaded and close minded to be leader. Maybe that’ll be good in the development of a future fresh, new Thunderclan leader? I like the idea of Ivypool becoming leader, but she hasn’t really stuck out for me. I hope bramblestar survives this whole ordeal and names a new deputy 🙁

I’m alittle disappointed that the book felt like a big fluff piece until the end. All the good stuff happened in the last like 20 pages!!! Ugh! It’s already scary enough with Ashfur being some demon cat gosh… I totally like that I can’t really predict anything in this “season”. Totally cool stuff but I wish they didn’t use it to kill off bramblestar and squirrelflight. I’m totally not ready to see either of them die 🙁

Squirrelflight didn’t die. She was just taken to the Dark Forest by Ashfur.

Hey Kate, did you know that warriors is poplar within schools? Or at least mine. I’ve seen so many kids reading it 😀

Hey Kate, What made you decide for the title to be ” Darkness Within ” ? And also do you think it’s cool?

Kate what color was Cheddar (The Kittypet)? I picture her as ether orange or yellow since that’s the color of cheese.

The book was amazing! Just one urgend question and some tiny ones:
Inthe official artworks Rootspring always had blue eyes, now in the book it says they are green. Which is the right color? What do these new cats look like:
*She-Cat Cheddar
*Tom Pancakes
*Pancakes Sons Bacon and Eggs
*Nectarsong’s son Beetlekit
*Nectarsong’s daughter Beekit (it says tabby and white, but what tabby color?)

Or maybe his mate was named Maple Syrup (Maple 4 short).

Are you suggesting that Pancakes named his children? I thought that it was their twolegs that decided to name Pancake’s kittens.

My head-canon of Pancakes is that he is a brown tom since pancakes are brown.

My head canon of Bacon is that they’re russet. However they can be copper as well since copper’s a reddish brown color. I picture Eggs as a white kitten with yellow patches.

hey kat sorry for reposting this if you saw the other one but i didnt know if you would see it considering its mixed in with old comments so here it goes.

i would love if you made a bonus scene to graystripes vow (yes, i know it already came out… but WHATEVER) where graystripe goes back to the Moonstone again to see it shattered… but then a rock slide takes him out for good :). (FYI im not a graystripe fan and i think hes ok-ish)

Can I post a whole long monologue here about what I thought of Darkness Within, or do I have to put up a spoiler warning?

It isn’t confirmed he is gone for good tho. Hopefully he will come back. (and be a better leader cuz I liked him as Brambleclaw but not him as Bramblestar)

Yeah. I’ll be happy if he can at least make it to StarClan.

Honestly, I want Bramblestar to die and stay dead and Squirrelflight to retire and make a new cat deputy.

Hi Kate, I have a little question: what do the new characters that appear in Darkness Within look like?

I don’t imagine the characters visually when I’m writing. It’s a hard process to describe. A character is more like a feeling than an image. Even when I write down the colour of a cat, I picture the word not the cat. It is irrelevant to me what they look like.

I have to say, ‘veil of shadows’ is a really good name

I’m so excited to read this! Too bad I’m only on The Fourth Apprentice and I’m a super slow reader. Planning on skipping Dawn Of The Clans until after finishing OotS, AVoS, and TBC.
