What’s in store for one of RiverClan’s greatest leaders, Crookedstar? Here in Crookedstar’s Promise by Erin Hunter, his backstory starts from when he was just a tiny kitten. In the beginning, Stormkit was just a kit who loved adventures. When escaping the barrier of RiverClan’s camp. Stormkit comes to the border with ThunderClan and comes face-to-face with the “terrifying” Goosefeather, ThunderClan’s Medicine Cat. Stormkit turns tail and retreats from “The Battle”. Stormkit loses his balance on a stepping stone when crossing the river back to camp and breaks his jaw. He is renamed after his new appearance, now being called Crookedkit. Follow Crookedkit as he regains the respect of his Clan, becomes an apprentice, a warrior, the deputy of RiverClan and maybe even leader. Read in terror as Crookedstar tries to escape revenge from his Dark Forest mentor, Mapleshade. She tries to teach Crookedstar to show no mercy. Have you ever overcome your fears, like Crookedstar? Erin Hunter has multiple messages in Crookedstar’s Promise, the first one is, “Don’t let others control you, be your own self.” The other message is to overcome your fears. Crookedstar is frightened of Mapleshade, but he cannot overcome her. I recommend Warrior: Crookedstar’s Promise to readers looking for a well written fantasy book, an adventure story or just because they love cats!
