Moth Flight’s Vision

July 24, 2016

Warriors Super Edition. Author: Erin Hunter.

Summary:

Set after the events of the Dawn of the Clans prequel arc, this Super Edition follows WindClan’s first medicine cat, Moth Flight, on a quest that changes the shape of the warrior Clans forever. The five warrior Clans are newly formed, and the forest is at peace—but in WindClan, one young cat is troubled by strange visions that will lead her to a destiny no cat could have predicted.

My Thoughts:

Somehow, the super editions have always seemed better than the other Warriors books. They focus on one individual cat, usually following them through much of their life, and draw a much more moving and character-driven story than the main arcs, which flip through clans and cats and are plot-propelled. Moth Flight’s Vision did not disappoint. We are drawn along with Moth Flight as she journeys from young, foolish cat to responsible healer, as her heart breaks and she struggles to trust Starclan, and as she ultimately develops the strength to do what must be done no matter how hard. Along the way readers of the first series will notice the customs and laws of the later clans coming into existence… the rules that bind medicine cats to their duty, the custom of names, the iconic nine lives themselves.

Content Review:

Sexual content: MC helps another cat give birth. MC finds out she’s pregnant and remembers the night when a tom who died soon after asked her to be his mate, remembers planning their life together. MC gives birth.

Language: The cats use only made up insults, such as ‘foxheart’ and ‘mouse-brain’.

Violence: Cats are chased by a dog and escape. A kit is severely injured by a fox, and dies soon after. A short cat-fight in a tree, then one of the characters falls from the tree, breaks spine, and dies within minutes. One major battle between two clans, in which there are multiple individual fights and injuries, including but not limited to: one cat breaking a leg and having a deep gash in the throat, and one cat blinded and dying of shock soon after.
