Warriors Super Edition: Crookedstar’s Promise
By Erin Hunter
Whether you stopped following the Warriors saga after the first series (which most readers consider the best), or have continued up to the fourth series (which is currently on book number four of six), Crookedstar’s Promise has much to offer. Fans of the earlier books will enjoy finding out more about the history of the popular RiverClan leader: how he overcame a disfiguring accident and rejection from his mother to become head of his Clan. If you’ve read the previous Super Edition, Bluestar’s Prophecy, you will remember Crookedstar during his apprentice days when he befriends (for a while) the future ThunderClan leader. Now we get to see his side of many of the events that shaped that book, and the whole first Warriors series. Those who are on the latest — and final — Warriors series will get some more clues about the dark forest and its denizens, especially one cat in particular who mentors the well-meaning but naive young cat. Crookedstar’s error has effects that resonate for the rest of his life — and perhaps generations to come. Either way, you won’t want to miss this excellent addition to the Warriors books.
