Review: Forest of Secrets (Warriors #3) by Erin Hunter

831194

 

We join up once more with Fireheart as he tries to get to the bottom of some clan drama, in specific the death of Redtail. He has risen in power within the clan, but there is still a lot of uncertainty as the Queen uses up almost all of her 9 lives, and Fireheart has to decide who he can trust.

While romance had never played much of a part in previous books, this time it was almost at the forefront. Not a bad thing, but I wasn’t expecting it. Not only is it romance, but it’s forbidden romance. It brings about some very important lessons but also made the book feel a bit more ‘adult’ in nature. Combine that with the violence between clans, murder, betrayal, and treachery, and I wonder what this book would be rated had it been written about humans instead of cats.

Even though the book is aimed at a younger audience, I enjoyed reading it this far. Some of the story resonated with me, especially the parts where no one believes Fireheart and his assumptions about the dangers that are going to befall the clan. It is difficult to know you are speaking the absolute truth, and yet not have people listen.

I did enjoy this book more than the previous one. It moved along at a steady pace and it was an enjoyable read. I haven’t decided if I’m going to continue on with the series or not, but that has more to do with the fact that I need a break from reading the same series.

3/5 stars
