Poor Yellowfang. She has been through so much. Honestly, she should have stayed a warrior. Then she would have had kits normally, and Broken Star would not have grown up so rejected. It must have taken a lot of courage to kill her own son. Broken Star is an interesting character. He was actually okay as a kit. Very good fighter too. Too bad he wasn't fighting for the clan instead of against it. It just goes to show how important a mother's connection is to her kit. Sadly, Later in the series when she's in StarClan, Yellowfang doesn't get the respect she deserves. Who is your favorite cat? Mine has got to be Yellowfang. And I like WindClan or ShadowClan the best.

Answers all questions anyone might have about Yellowfang's life with simplicity and ease. A must read for all fans of the Warriors series!
And Brokenstar is literally worse than Tigerstar he is the worst cat ever HOW could he do all those terrible things!!!!!! And I feel so bad for Yellowfang!

This is an awesome book! If you didn't read it, and you are a warriors fan, you are missing out on all the emotional goods! I can feel yellowfang's pain all the way through.

I loved the book! At the beginning, I feel bad for Nutwhisker, calling Raggedstar a kittypet, even though it was true. Yellowfang's courage reminds me of Firestar, and how he found her. Love this book and hope to read it again!

Very decent book! My favourite special edidtion out of all the other ones! I really recommend it. I didn't really like YellowFang at first in The New Prophecy series, but now, after I read about her life in her perspective, I truly think that she is a decent cat after all. Her story is touching and she was torn between her love for RaggedStar and sticking to the medecine cat's code. I really don't blame her though, for Brokenstar being born, because I can understand the reason of every action she does. I love this book with all my heart! :)

This book is sooooo sad. Although is Yellofang could have stayed true to the medicine cat code Brokenkit would never have been born. I cried my eyes out when all the apprentices died because they were to little. Especially Badgerpaw who Flintfang named Badgerfang. In the Enter The Clans book it tells about how Badgerpaw dies. In the end Flintfang vows never to train an apprentice to young to be trained. I hate how Brokenstar drove Yellowfangs out and her own parents thought that she killed her siblings. Yellowfang truly lived a life of many choices. What she decided changed her future forever, From when she was a kit and became on apprentice to a warrior she was overwhelmed with all the decisions she had to make. When she became a medicine cat apprentice she felt safe from all the questions and choices with Raggedpelt. When she had Brokenkit she knew the choice she did not know the choice she mad would affect the whole Clan. If only Brokenkit had a mother who could nurture, protect and care for him perhaps his path would not lead to bloodshed.

Yellowfang is an amazing cat, brave and loyal to defend her Clan at all costs. (But wow, Brokenstar!)

This was such and interesting book! Why did Brokenstar get nine lives! Every cat could tell her was EVIL and a "little" DANGEROUS! I felt sooooo bad for yellowfang...

I. HATE. BROKENSTAR. How could Starclan give him nine lives even though he's the worst cat ever. Why did'nt Nightstar receive nine lives? Yellowfang totally owes Firestar a ton.

As a kit, Yellowfang's dream is to become the best warrior in all of Shadowclan, but because of her rare gift, Sagewhisker, the medicine cat, tells her that her destiny is to be a medicine cat. Then, after going through lots of herb training and receiving her full medicine cat name, Yellowfang secretly meets with Raggedstar and breaks the medicine cat code by having kits! Yellowfang decides to leave her identity secret. So Brokentail, their kit, is raised by his father and ends up becoming a strong but ambitious warrior. One day, Brokentail becomes deputy to his father, Raggedstar, and becomes leader shortly after due to Raggedstar's death. When becoming leader, Brokenstar helps Shadowclan suffer by training kits as warriors and banishing the elders from the campsite. He stops listening to his medicine cat, Yellowfang, and soon accuses her of killing kits. Yellowfang is then exiled from Shadowclan, with her apprentice, Runningnose, in her place. She ends up in Thunderclan territory and turns out to be their new medicine cat, but Yellowfang's dark secret now threatens the future of all four warrior clans.

Yellowfang wants to become the best warrior in Shadowclan, but the former medicine cat, Sagewhisker, tells her that her destiny is being a medicine cat. Yellowfang goes through medicine cat training, but she meets Raggedstar secretly. Yellowfang then has kits...Raggedstar's kits! She abandoned them, leaving the identity of the mother of their only surviving kit secret, and Brokenkit is picked in. He then becomes a strong, but ambitious warrior. His father, Raggedstar, then appoints him deputy. Raggedstar so called "gets found dead" by Brokentail leaves Shadowclan to be lead by Brokentail. Yellowfang brings him to get his nine lives, and Brokenstar comes back as ambitious as possible. Kits are being trained as warriors and fighting in battles, elders are forced to live out of the camp, and fend for themselves. The leader no longer listens to the medicine cat, and Shadowclan slowly falls to peices. Yellowfang is accused of something she would never do, and she gets exiled out of Shadowclan by Brokenstar. Her apprentice, Runningnose, takes her place, although Runningnose doesn't like it how Yellowfang gets exiled. Yellowfang find her paws in Thunderclan territory, and sooner or later, she becomes a new cat, but she still craves for the pines of Shadowclan.

Violence: there is mild violence in the seires but i think that the last book of the first seires is the most grusome. not for kids 8 and under
