I sort of like how Jaypaw was portrayed: a blind cat training in medicine with enhanced other senses. I feel as though books these days don't portray "disability" as a strength. Either they don't have any, or it's "pitied" upon. However, here a cat is still respected and treated as an equal. In fact, his skills are enhanced in a sense, where it almost seems to compliment him without limits. Also, he has a strong sense of right and wrong, that helps lead him off the path Tigerstar and Hawkfrost want to guide him on. I worried a bit for the other two siblings in this book, but I guess it will eventually work out.

If you guys haven't read the series you really should. It is so addicting, once u start u can't stop. I started the series in like, May maybe late April but, I'm already like more than half way done the series. I like the books because it is suitable for ages 9 and up and is a book that can be enjoyed by girls and boys. Also the warriors cat game the new prophecy is pretty fun, kinda cheesy. PLEASE READ THE SERIES AND FINISH IT!😺😸

Beginning with Warriors: Into the Wild, the entire Warrior series is a sheer delight, suitable for young people and adults alike. In Dark River the three chosen cats draw closer and closer to when they must use their special abilities to help their clan.

Surprisingly, there's a lot of scars and blood - also a lot of battles and war. There's always a situation with these cats!
