Warriors-Into-the-WildWarriors Readalikes

Today’s Readalikes are for the Warriors series by Erin Hunter. For generations, four Clans of wild cats have shared the forest according to the laws laid down by the powerful ancestors. But the warrior code is threatened, and the ThunderClan cats are in grave danger. The sinister ShadowClan grows stronger every day. Noble warriors are dying — and some deaths are more mysterious than others.

There are lots of books in the Warriors series, plus a bunch of spin-off series by Erin Hunter. Once you have finished all those and you’re still looking for more, read these other action-y animal adventure stories for ages 9-12.

    I agree with turtlewinner4 about how the first book was not the best book. I just first started reading them, and at first I was a little sceptical. Then I read the second book and what do you know! Snap, I can’t stop reading!

  7. Kylee

    *SPOILER ALERT*OMG I just started reading these! I like, JUST finishes the third book! I am really worried about Bluestar and her dying because of losing her last life! Just a small warning to all you fans, I hear she dies in the fifth book! Very sad.
