River Spoiler Page

The first book of A Starless Clan (Arc 8) will be called River! Chat away with your theories and predictions!

Blurb of River:
A dark age has given way to an era of peace in the five warrior Clans, and with it comes a promise of hope. As their leaders deliberate on unprecedented changes to the warrior code, three young warriors set their paws on the paths that will decide their futures.
In ThunderClan, warrior apprentice Flamepaw, a descendant of the legendary leader Firestar, struggles under the weight of his famous kin’s legacy, while young ShadowClan warrior Sunbeam has doubts of her own. But in RiverClan, medicine cat apprentice Frostpaw looks eagerly toward the horizon, awaiting the day she will be called upon to help her Clan—a day that may dawn sooner than she ever dreamed.

  • Hi, Kate! This isn’t exactly something about River, but do you think Dovewing will get an apprentice sometime? (Spoilers for anyone who hasn’t read up to the recent series)
    I love seeing her as a ShadowClan cat and I think it’d be interesting to see her fitting into her new Clan that way.
    Also, if Barley dies, will he be reunited with Ravenpaw? After rereading the series, I love their relationship and would love for them to be together again.
    Sorry about the lengthy message! Looking forward to the new arc and A Light in the Mist!

  • Hi Kate! I was wondering if the team and you had discussed warrior suffixes for the next generation of cats? I’m grown rather fond of Flamepaw especially and i’m interested how his story unfolds during the next book of The Broken Code arc? I was brainstorming suffixes for Flamepaw and his sister, Finchpaw and i came up with two names. Flameheart, for Flamepaw after his great, great grandfather Firestar and Finchsong, for Finchpaw after her late father Larksong.

  • Question: Are we able to know what Frostpaw looks like at this moment?

    I’ve been wondering about what her canon appearance is, and we already know what Flamepaw and Sunbeam look like.

    I know we can see her in the cover art for River, but she is at the far back of the group so we can’t clearly see her pelt colour, just her (possibly) blue-green eyes.

    Thank you for reading! 🙂

  • Dear Kate,
    Do you think Squirrelflight and Bramblestar would benefit if they actually sat down and talked once in a while? I personally think that most of their conflict in Squirrelflight’s Hope could have been avoided if they had just explained to each other how they felt/what they thought about things.

  • Hi Kate! I’m really excited to see what happens in River! I’m grown rather fond of Flamepaw, one of the featured protagonists in this book. Since his warrior ceremony isn’t too far away, i’m wondering what his warrior suffix will be. Since flame and fire are distinctively the same, i was wondering if Flamepaw would be named after his great-great grandfather, Firestar? I do like sound of Flameheart personally.

    • I’m excited about the new series too! It’s looking really good so far. We get to explore 3 new wonderful characters, who I love already! You’re gonna have to wait and see what happens to Flamepaw. 😁

  • Hey Kate! This isn’t related to the book, but, will there ever be a disabled cat who can becomes a warrior and is a great example? I feel like this would be a great part of the series

  • Kate, I’d like to know do any of the authors realize that Mistystar is so old? Just wondering because she’s on the cover

    Also, is Frostpaw just plain gray? It’s truly hard to see with the harsh yellow lighting.

    If you answer, thank you!

  • Hi. Will Flamepaw be getting his warrior name soon along with his sister and Baypaw and Myrtlepaw in this book? There warrior ceremonies are way overdue and they’re young adults now. I have a couple of ideas for they’re warrior names, like Flamefoot for Flamepaw, Finchwing for Finchpaw, Bayheart for Baypaw and Myrtlestem for Myrtlepaw.

    I don’t really like the idea of Flameheart because I want Flamepaw to be his own cat and not having to live up to Firestar’s legacy like Sparkpelt.

  • Hey Kate, so will Flamepaw be getting his warrior name along with Finchpaw, Baypaw and Myrtlepaw? Their warrior names are way overdue and I would really like to see what you came up with them! I was kinda brainstorming suffixes and for Flamepaw his warrior name would be Flamefoot because I really like the sound of that, and I don’t want Flame to be under pressure to live up to Firestar’s legacy like how Sparkpelt would’ve if her warrior name would’ve been Sparkfire.

    For Finchpaw I really like the name Finchwing or Finchflight because I imagine her being a lot like Squirrelflight when she was younger and the name Finchwing has a nice ring to it. For Baypaw and Myrtlepaw I like the names Bayheart and Myrtlestem for them. Also, will you give Wrenpaw a warrior name? I like the name Wrensong or Wrenwing for her name.

  • Hi Kate,
    Is there any prophecy in this series like in its predecessors? (“Fire alone will save the Clan,” etc.) I’d really like to know if Frostpaw gets called to help her clan through a prophecy. Also, what are Sunbeam’s doubts? Is it living up to her sister Needletail?
