  • This is Clue #5 to my scavenger hunt! Clue #1 can be found on the secret page that the link leads to!

    [spoiler title=”Clue #5″] This is a page where people discuss heroes with cool powers! (It’d be too obvious if I said the right word.) [/spoiler]

  • Dear Kate,
    Who was the leader after Redstar? Seedpelt? Or Oakstar? Or someone who was never mentioned?

      • Does it make sense for Redstar and Seedpelt to be leader and deputy for a long time, and then for Seedpelt to die, and for Redstar to make the future Oakstar his deputy?
        Also, does it make sense canonically for Oakstar to be Birdflight’s grandson? Or was Tigerstar related to SkyClan a different way?
        Sorry to bother you. I’m writing a fanfiction.

        • Not Kate, but I’ll add that i was wondering about the Oakstar/Cloudstar potential connection a while back and checked it out a bit
          Since Tigerclaw and Spottedleaf are both related to Birdflight, we can gather that the connection is through Tigerclaw’s mom/Spottedleaf’s sister Leopardfoot. Therefore, i think the connection is through either swiftbreeze or adderfang, the parents of leopardfoot and spottedleaf.

          • Thank you.
            And were either of them related to Oakstar? Because Gorseclaw, Tigerstar, and Oakstar all have brown fur and amber eyes…

            • I don’t believe that section of history has been mapped yet in the books; adderfang’s parents are unknown and swiftbreeze’s mother is flashnose (sister of daisytoe and therefore related to bluestar). C:

              • Thanks.
                Were Flashnose and Daisytoe alive at the same time as Oakstar?
                I guess this will take some headcanons…

                • Yes, I think so. Daisytoe and Flashnose were apprentices with Pinestar. They were also both alive in Pinestar’s Choice, and Oakstar was as well.

    • In my opinion it was either someone who was never mentioned or Oakstar.

      I’m not Kate, and this is just my opinion. If you don’t agree with it, then that’s fine 👍

  • The blurb of this book says:
    The final battle has arrived, and this time, every Clan—living and dead—must unite to defeat the impostor 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.

    Does that mean that the Dark Forest will be joining forces with StarClan and the living Clans? I can’t see any of them doing that except maybe Beetlewhisker!

  • Here are some theories!
    AshFur posses more cats
    he brainwashes SquirrelFlight
    BristleFrost is expecting kits at the end
    Bramblestar dies for good
    GreyKit, A spotfur kit and a Bristlefrost kit(if she has one) will be the next povs in the next arc

  • Any of y’all think SpotFur will die and BristleFrost will be her kit foster mom?
    Unlikely but possible,
    As much as I love RootxBris I think it would make more sense for them to break up because both need to take care of their clan.

  • My theories about book covers:

    1. the cat on the left under Bramble’s head has a white-tipped tail. It might be Alderheart. (he has white tipped tail!)
    2. the four pairs of eyes might either be DF cats or living Clan cats like BristleRootShadow
    3. As said in Squirrelflight’s Hope, the Dark forest was outgrown and deserted. Maybe it seems deserted only because Ashfur took control over the DF cats and controlled them like he controlled the ghosts.
    4. the Clans might send a patrol to spy on the dark forest and Ashfur
    5. the Clan might fail to enter the DF through Moonpool because Ashfur somehow closed the entrance
  • Theories and what i want to happen=

    mistystar is on her last life, she should die nobally in battle.
    Greystripe should die- he is old, but he shouldn’t die of greencough or somethin’ ’cause he’s a main character and that would just be bad.I think he should die defending Firestar’s, Millie’s or Silverstream’s ghost.
    Thornclaw will become a loner called Thorn but Blossomfall he will miss blossomfall so he comes back. This would give this ship a lot of development.
    Shadowsight will turn bad but Rootspring, Puddleshine, His parents and siblings will get him good again.
    Something will happen with RootXBristle, either the code changes and they have kits or it just sorta ends, I don’t want another leaf Crow awkwardness.

  • Cats I think are on the cover:

    Big head: Bramblestar

    Main three cats on the bottom (left to right): Squirrelflight, Ashfur, Bramblestar

    The four glowing eyes in the background: Bristlefrost, Shadowsight, Rootspring, and Spiresight

    What do you guys think about this?

  • I’m so excited for this book to come out!
    Thoughts- the blue eyes watching from the shadows on the cover are the spirits ashfur is holding captive?! Ex: spiresight and the cats who have died since starclan has been cut off? Anyone else share this theory?

  • So if the Dark Forest, the living Clans, and StarClan are all joining forces….
    Who are they fighting against? Ashfur can’t have that many cats on his side, right? And we assume he’s not working entirely with random spirits except maybe Spiresight.

    • I actually hope that he doesn’t. But I also don’t want Squirrelflight to be leader because she has gotten WAY too much attention since the second series in my opinion. I hope that a background character that has had little to no screen time becomes leader, like Dewnose.

    • Id honestly just like Squirrelflight and Bramblestar to finally rest, they’ve had a good run but its time for someone else to take the spotlight.
      I’d also like to see Thornclaw as leader

    • i think he’ll come back but decide he doesnt wanna be leader b/c hes already had enough evil cats trying to kill him, thanks, and so either squilf will be leader or shell not wanna either, and then im rooting for ivypool
