  • Heya, I heard there was going to be a 8th series, and I have a plot (Tho I know no one will use it)
    so, the 3 characters are interduced. One of them is the all kind one, one of them is the feisty and brave, and one of them is the mean app. All in different clans (one in riverclan would be great!)
    But one day, something happens, and history is changed. Only the 3 characters remember how the world is supposed to be like. That it shouldn’t be this way. So, they must uncover how this happened, why, and find a way to fix it.
    (The mean app would turn nicer, tho would have temper)
    But then this 4th POV character also knows. She thinks this is…what should happen. She likes messing time up. So, she gathers cats from around, to stop the 3 from fixing the problem. (This cat would be the villain)
    Again I know this wont be used, but I hope you like it!

  • Hi Kate! If you had to choose, who’s kits would you like to see as POV in the 8th series? Root x Bristle kits? Stem x Spots kits? Fin x Twig kits? One of Curlfeather’s kits? I really hope we do have a RiverClan POV. And do you like the ideas for the 8th series or did you like those of the 7th arc better?

  • I looked on Harpercollins Canada website and found this:

    “When fear reigns supreme, only hope can save the Clans.

    The impostor’s reign of terror has brought the Clans to the brink of destruction, and now, every warrior—living and dead—must unite to defeat him before he delivers his final blow. To ensure their future and protect their past, StarClan, the Dark Forest, and all five Clans must band together to turn back the tide of darkness—before the impostor’s fury destroys them all.”

    A slightly updated blurb for A Light In The Mist.

  • * UNRELATED WARRIORS CONSPIRACY THEORY*
    The REAL reason Leafstar always names cats after other cats is because she can’t think of creative suffixes, but if she names cats after cats she can honor her clan and reuse names at the same time!

    • Well, it does! The protagonists in the A Starless Clan arc are:
      – Flamepaw from ThunderClan
      – Sunbeam from ShadowClan
      – Frostpaw from RiverClan!

    • It hasn’t been confirmed yet, but the novellas are so popular, I’m sure we’ll keep writing them.

  • (SPOILERS AHEAD!!) This is my theory for ALitM.

    A thick line of pelts blocks Ivypool’s view. Spirit-cats, chanting something.

    “Claw him to shreds!”

    She backs away. She had thought that she had met every Dark Forest cat in her time here, but she must have been wrong. One of the spirit-cats turns to look in her direction. She shivers as she recognizes a cat which she knows. Stemleaf! But his eyes are eerily… blank.

    These cats aren’t Dark Forest cats, she realizes. They’re Ashfur’s prisoners- his henchmen.

    Stemleaf turns, back to the battle. Ivypool looks around her. She can’t see the battle; she’ll have to find somewhere to view it from. She looks up at the rise.

    She scrambles up onto the crest. But two cats are already there.

    Ivypool recognizes their pelts instantly.

    Shadowsight and Bristlefrost are standing on the rise!

    Bristlefrost turns. “Ivypool?” she breathes in wonder.

    “What’s going on down there?” she asks her daughter. “What are you all watching?”

    “Come and see for yourself.” Bristlefrost’s words put on a somber tone.

    Ivypool steps up to the edge of the rise, and gasps.

    At the bottom of the rise, two cats she recognizes are locked in a battle.

    The battle.

    (I have to stop there, I’ll reply to this comment with the rest)

    • Her mind flashes right back to the time, all those moons ago, during another time. A battle.

      Hawkfrost lunged, claws unsheathed. She cringed to the earth, cowering- and a shadow swept across her eyes. Not the shadow of death. A shadow of fur.

      Black fur.

      She looks down upon those two cats, battling in a frenzy. And Snowtuft lunges.

      “I love you, Bristlefrost,” she whispers into her daughter’s ear. “You and all of my family.”

      Then she leaps. Snowtuft’s claws score through her pelt, straight to her core.

      Her last thought before the world went black?

      ‘At least I saved Rootspring.’

  • Hey Kate! Your biggest fan here… I have a few questions if you don’t mind!

    1. Who was your least favorite character you wrote about?
    2. Same as the last one except favorite character.
    3. Is BarleyxRavenpaw/Mothpool/TallxJake canon?
    4.Can we PLEASE have a Lionstar?
    5.Oooo and maybe a Flamestar (Flamepaw)

    • Hi Moonstorm!
      Squirrelflight
      Bristlefrost
      You’ll have to search the text and decide for yourself whether they are cannon. Only the text knows. Personally, I love all of those relationships.
      Are you sure he’s ready?
      Hmmm. IDK

  • I think that Shadowsight might turn evil in this book and possibly be the main villain of the the new arc that was just revealed

  • Is Stormcloud ever going to do anything??? He’s not even existing peacefully he’s just a name in the allegiances at this rate. He needs to speak a sentence! Have kids with someone (everyone is related to Firestar at this rate and it is Not Great)! He needs to live a somewhat important background character life!
