Review of Forest of Secrets by Erin Hunter

Read For: Series Challenge and Mount TBR
Synopsis: "Allegiances are shifting among the Clans of warrior cats that roam the forest. With tensions so delicately balanced, former friends can become enemies overnight, and some cats are willing to kill to get what they want.

Fireheart is determined to find out the truth about the mysterious death of brave ThunderClan warrior Redtail. But as he searches for answers, he uncovers secrets that some believe would be better left hidden."

My Review: The second book in this series was very relatable for the target reading group even with all the characters being cats. I feel that this book lost a lot of that connection suddenly (it is almost as if there are two different authors writing this series). The adventure of this series definitely slows due to the harshness of the season but there is still some good tension and some interesting twists that take place. The book leaves off at a tenuous new beginning with some interesting new possibilities that will draw you to read the fourth book in the series.
My Rating: The connection with the previous book was pretty much lost in this book. There were some interesting developments though and I will continue reading the series.  I give it a rating of Two Paws and a Stump Wag.


  1. Hmmm. I wonder why this one felt so different. One day I plan on reading these books. Great review.

    1. It was just weird to go from connecting with something the audience might experience to loosing it entirely and just reading about the feline life in the wild.
