    I feel conflicted about Bramblestar

    likeee on one hand I want him to die

    but on the other I want Squilf to be happy TvT

  • Hi Kate. I feel awful for saying this, but
    if you can, make sure that Bristlefrost’s entire personality stops being butchered, I genuinely can’t take it anymore. You all made her out to be an independent but headstrong cat at first, only to scrap literally all of that in favor of making her literally start simping for Rootspring. If a relationship needs to have a character’s personality scrapped in order for making it work out better, maybe you shouldn’t follow through with the relationship??? I mean obviously BristleRoot is going to be canon, but please, actually have it make sense and true to the characters.
    My standards are so very low but even I can’t take this

  • Note: SPOILERS for The Silent Thaw and The Place of No Stars

    Ok. The book is my second favorite book, first being TST, but theres just so much going on at once and this book too me so long to read because of all that information
    [spoilers start]
    In TST, I just read it way too fast so I didn’t realize Shadowsight was attacked at the end and I learned that from watching Youtube videos.
    In TPoNS, I had just read Squilf and Bramble’s escape and I was shocked. Because of this, I didn’t fully read the final scene with basically, the duel with Rootspring v.s. Snowtuft and I though it was Stemleaf’s Spirit under Ashfur’s control against Rootspring. Only once I read the book a 3rd time, I realized it was Snowtuft fighting Rootspring.
    [spoilers end]


    When Bramblestar escaped, they didn’t just say Bramblestar was back with us. They said “Bramblestar is back among us.”
    I see the Erins took note of the Among Us jokes 😀

  • Help:
    Mum wouldn’t let me get the book, so I really really really want to know when will the book be available on websites like Goodreads or Bookfrom. Also I’d be grateful if someone here can update information on the Warriors Wiki so at least I can have a faint idea about TPoNS. Please!!! Many thanks.

  • An explanation of the quote:
    “Your luck is going to run out if you go on tempting fate like this.”- Tigerstar to Shadowsight. Shadowsight has just returned from the Dark Forest. He distracted Ashfur so Squirrelfight and Bramblestar could escape, but ended up badly wounded. When he wakes up, he has a wounded ear and leg, but he insists on going back to the Dark Forest to get Rootspring(who was kidnapped by Ashfur) and some trapped spirits out. Tigerstar explodes with fury and anxiety, saying that Shadowsight’s luck is going to run out. Eventually, Mothwing convinces him of the obvious- that if he returns to the Dark Forest half dead from his wounds, Ashfur will find him and make him completely dead, leaving the Clans with no one who can safely travel to the Dark Forest.

    • Correction – that was a different confrontation with Tigerstar. The quote actually comes later, when Bristlefrost wants to find Rootspring and she needs a guide, so she asks Shadowsight to come with her- and Tigerstar says te quote to Shadowsight.

  • Hey Kate I was wondering if at the end of chapter 22, it says that a wet body slams into Rootspring. I was wondering if that was Darksripe because it says that he fell into the water around the island a few pages earlier. I know you didn’t write the book and if you do know you would say “W.A.S.” but I thought it would be worth asking anyway. 😛

    Oh my StarClan! I just finished “A Place of No Stars” and it was AMAZING!!!!! At first I was like, “noooooo why are they making my precious Lionblaze look like a complete jerk?!”
    Kate, if you are there, can you maybe tell me if Lionblaze looks like a jerk in the next book?
    Anyways, A Place of No Stars was really action packed and suspenseful! I am so, so, so, so happy that Bramblestar is back! His reunion with Squirrelflight was the best! <3 I want to read “A Light in the Mist” sooooooo bad! Can’t wait for it to come out! The Erin Hunter’s did an incredible job on this book.

  • To the people who have read The place of no stars,
    What was your favourite part of the book?

    I liked snowtuft and being able to see the dark forest again. I also really enjoyed the Shadowsight chapters, and his chat with his father Tigerstar II.

    • I liked the Shadowsight chapters too. The timeline was a little confusing- is Rootspring’s chapter before, after, or during Bristlefrost’s? How much time passes between these two chapters?

      Otherwise, it was great.

    • I loved the new Dark Forest stuff, Snowtuft was the highlight of this book, I think.

      I have a few favorite scenes, I audibly went “oh crap!” when it was revealed Willowshine was being controlled all along (though in retrospect I should have seen it coming with her squinting like that… suspicious), and the dream Bristlefrost had where she and Rootspring were together in ThunderClan but everything was just a bit wrong and she couldn’t remember things, I thought it was super creepy. The prologue was really cool as well 😀 The Broken Code really knows how to keep me on the edge of my seat.
