Reviews for Warriors : The Ultimate Guide
Booklist Reviews 2014 January #1
Fans of Hunter's popular Warriors series will pore over this nicely packaged companion guide, while those unfamiliar with the battle-worn felines may be enticed to read on after browsing the appealing full-color artwork. The book is organized into sections divided by the five main clans--ThunderClan, ShadowClan, WindClan, RiverClan, and SkyClan--and offers profiles of important warrior cats and overviews of each clan's history. Sections for cats who fall outside the clans, including ancestors and cats who choose to live beyond the warrior code, are also included. While the guide is mostly a character encyclopedia, Hunter intersperses short fiction, as well as some detailed maps of cat territories in the forest, lake, and gorge. McLoughlin's artwork, which accompanies each profile with a portrait, brings these cats to life and represents their personalities well. For libraries with a large Warriors fan base, this guide will be a worthy addition. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
