Crookedstar's Promise

Post by Guest on July 9th 2011, 15:17

Here's some hints to that new book ^.^

This book follows the life of RiverClan leader Crookedstar, who, after his crippling accident, makes a promise to put his Clan above all else. What seemed like such a simple promise grew and grew until he and the ones he loves suffer for it.

Spoiler:
The Prologue begins in a storm that is flooding and destroying the RiverClan camp. The only cat to be confirmed missing, however, is an elder named Duskwater. Rainflower begins kitting, and gives birth to Stormkit and Oakkit.
After this when the camp is being rebuilt due to the flood, Hailstar insists to sleep out in the clearing. He says he won't let his den be rebuilt until the rest of the camp is fixed. Later when Stormkit falls out of a tree due to a magpie he decides to catch it. Also, he compliments Shellheart on his son saying that he would grow up to become a great warrior. Later, ThunderClan invade Sunningrocks but RiverClan does not go into fighting because Brambleberry does not have enough herbs yet to treat the injured..
Stormkit is shown to be an adventurous kit, and he takes Oakkit out to explore and play. Oakkit complains that he is the oldest while they were playing, and that he should be the leader, but Stormkit leads, anyways, because always imagined himself to be leader first.
The two brothers get all the way to the stepping-stones, where they see a mysterious tom. They think he's a loner, and they go across the stepping-stones to chase him off, though that was ThunderClan territory.
It turned out that the crazy old cat was Goosefeather, ThunderClan's medicine cat. But, Goosefeather gets angry at them when they tell him he's on their territory, and chases the kits off. Stormkit loses balance while at stepping-stones, and trips, his face slamming into a stone. He nearly drowns in the river, but he sees an orange and white cat in a vision, saying that it wasn't his time to die yet, and he had a destiny.
But, he was then saved by Mudfur, who was a warrior at the time. But, as Stormkit was being carried, he tastes blood in his mouth, and there was a throbbing pain all over his face. When he recovers from shock and infection a moon later, he sees his reflection in a puddle, and sees his broken jaw that scars him for life. His mother, Rainflower refuses to look at him because he's "ugly" and that she's not proud of him anymore.
Stormkit is deeply saddened when Rainflower doesn't want to be around him and doesn't like him because of the way he looks like. He overhears Shellheart and Rainflower arguing over changing Stormkit's name to Crookedkit. He bursts between them and tells them not to fight over him. They end up changing his name to Crookedkit.

Hey here is the introduction from the front of the book
A perilous promise
Two healthy kits have just been born in RiverClan—Oakkit and Stormkit. The whole Clan rejoices, and no cat is more pleased than their mother, who immediately recognizes her kits’ innate skill and bravery.

But when tragedy befalls Stormkit and he is permanently disfigured, his mother renames him Crookedkit and casts him aside.

As the young cat grows in strength, he dreams of becoming Clan leader. Then a mysterious cat appears in his dreams, whispering of prophecies untold and destinies undiscovered. She proclaims that Crookedkit will have all that he desires—but he must pledge his undying loyalty to RiverClan.

No cat could ever have imagined the terror and destruction that would lie in one hastily made, seemingly harmless promise.

Doesn't the book also detail Oakheart's affair with Bluestar?

No, it's about Crookedstar but the book discusses why Crookedstar allowed the forbidden love between his bro and this cat from another clan

The Forgotten Warrior comes out November 22nd. I hate it that summer has to end and school has to start for the book to come out. Sad
Crookedstar's Promise was an excellent book. I can't decide if I like it better than SkyClan's Destiny though.

It's kind of sad how Crookedkit is renamed his name and how his mother neglected him. Another reason to join ThunderClan!! Razz

Well, the actions of only one cat doesn't affect the whole Clan, so RiverClan is still as good as it is. And mind you, Ozone, ThunderClan drove their own Clanmate, Mapleshade, and her innocent kits into the river to drown.

Actullay, that's not true at all. ThunderClan only cast out Mapleshade and her kits; they didn't follow her to the river, or at least Mapleshade never mentioned anything like that. It was an accident that was no one's fault. ThunderClan was still terrible to throw out defenseless kits into the cold, but they never caused their death.
I really liked this super edition. One of the only things I didn't like about it is how it turned into Bluestar's Prophecy really quick. At least with Bluestar's Prophecy, the tragic atmosphere is eased into, but with Crookedstar's Promise, it starts out like a normal Warriors book, but then it randomly drops the reader into a dark, depressing hole where nearly all of Crookedstar's family dies at once. What happened? What I also don't like is how Thistleclaw's dark side is revealed. He's being trained by the Dark Forest. So?? That's a really big letdown, since I was expecting something like an epic battle, something like the fight between Brambeclaw and Hawkfrost in Sunset. Besides that, Crookedstar's Promise was a really great book, and I liked seeing all the new faces and names. It was espically intresting to see some of the cat's background's, like Leopardstar's. It's weird for me to say this, but I actullay wished that Leopardstar played a bigger role in the book. Same with Silverstream.

Leopardstar did play an okay role. Mudfur being her father and everything. But I have to agree about Silverstream!

I read Crookedstars Promise, it`s definitely my favorite Warrior Book! It is about Crookedstar but it hints about Oakheart and the Thunderlcan cat, known then as Bluefur. It is a tragedic and emotional book, yet intense at the same time. It tells the tragedy of the former Riverclan Leader, Crookedstar. He was known as Stormkit until a horrible tragedy strikes and his name is changed to Crookedkit. Desperate to fit in, Crookedkit joins a group of 'shadowy' warriors to help him become a warrior. He makes what seems a simple promise that causes a line of tragedies. It is arguably one of the best Warrior Cats books.
