First time reading about Crookedstar's history and I gotta say him and Oakheart really were the greatest Warriors in the forest alongside other noticeable ones like Bluefur. Rainflower was a horrible mother after his injury and just disowned him because of it and that was a really bad excuse to not love him or whatever, the only cats that stuck with him was his brother.

Mapleshade was overall just very...manipulative and just wanted him to suffer even more and just...WOW.

I simply loooove this book! ever since i first read these series i fell in love with it! I personally don't really like crookedstar either because i get the expression he doesn't care about his father that much and more about his mother,Rainflower. Rainflower is a selfish and dumb mom. His father is such a great cat and he broke up with Rainflower just for Crookedstar. Great read and would recomend this to you all!

This book is pretty good, but not my favorite. But it is SO sad!! His Mom is the worst, but I really like Shellheart, he is a great Dad. I read more than half and then didn't read it for several months, then lost where I was so I just read the summary on the Warriors wiki.

crookedstar's story is so sad man, it really hurts on another level. the more you reread it, the more it hurts. when you get older and read it again, sigh, it's painful.

Warning: This book is great but is super sad!!!! So much of Crookedstar suffering! But
it's also really cool to see characters like Mapleshade and Crookedstar in these super editions and then in the actual series.

"you must promise me," Mapleshade lowered her voice, "that you be loyal to your Clan above all other things. What you want is nothing compared to the needs of your clan. Nothing, remember?"

"Do you remember what I said? Do you remember my exact words? I can give you everything you ever dreamed of, power over all your Clanmates, if you promise to be loyal to your Clan above all other things. Do you make that promise? And you did! You promised! You chose to sacrifice every cat you ever loved. Your mother, your brother, your mate, and now your own kits: From that one promise, I could take them all!"
β€” Mapleshade to Crookedstar page 481

"I can give you everything you ever dreamed of, if you promise to be loyal to your Clan above all other things. Do you make that promise?" Crookedstarβ€”leader of RiverClanβ€”stands at the head of his Clan as one of the most revered warriors in the forest. But a promise carelessly made moons ago could prove to be his downfall, as he is forced to choose over and over between the allure of power and the safety of those he loves.
