Deep in the heart of the forest, four clans of warrior cats coexist in uneasy harmony — but uncertain times are upon them, and dangers threaten the precarious balance of the forest. Fireheart is a ThunderClan warrior cat now, but his troubles are far from over. As the chill of winter sets in, the cats of rival RiverClan grow restless, while WindClan is weak and facing threats from all sides. As tensions build to an explosive climax, Fireheart faces not only imminent battle, but betrayal from within his own Clan. Epic fantasy themes, heroic animal characters, and a thrillingly detailed secret world of wild cats form the essence of this gripping series. Book Two continues Fireheart's quest to be a true warrior, when he finds new danger lurking in the woods as the chill of winter sets in.
