Now the grandchildren of Firestar are getting old enough to leave the nursery and become apprentices. Lionpaw is happy being a warrior. Jaypaw is not happy with his mentor, Brightheart. Hollypaw learns she is not cut out to be a medicine cat. After some thought Hollypaw admits it. Jaypaw is not happy but after sharing dreams with Spottedleaf he realizes his calling is to be the Clan's medicine cat. Jaypaw does not yet realize the gift he has but others do. What is happening within the Clans?
I enjoyed this new series. This book sets it up wonderfully. I feel a connection with Jaypaw. I realize he is angry, bitter, and so sure everyone sees him as useless but he has a gift that will help not only ThunderClan but all the Clans. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series. I want to know what journey StarClan will send Firestar's grandchildren on and who else will be going.
