*spoiler*
Firestar didn't actually die by a falling tree (although that's would've been funny. The great Firestar died because of a tree). According to one of the Erin Hunters, he died from wounds in the battle. Don't know if someone else mentioned this already, but I just wanted to say.

The battle that every cat dreaded has now come. The dark forest warriors are attacking all cats from all clans. Meanwhile, Jayfeather, Lionblaze and Dvoepaw wait desperately for the fourth cat who holds the last hope of the clans. Omens and signs are starting to not make sense as the warriors think that StarClan is fretting that their lives are all over. What will be the outcome?

Sometimes authors don't really seem to know what they are doing, but then again, other times they do. Does anyone else think that killing off characters that were just brought to life seems a bit redundant? I surely think so, as ironically this gives a sense of false hope, not "Last Hope." I did not expect the fourth cat to be who it was, and that was a definite thriller part to read. Sadly, there seemed to be a lot more death and sorrow in this book than ever before, which really made it sobering, but also mind-opening to all the different paths the living will now take.

Okay, rant time!!!!
STUPID FIRESTAR EVEN IN DEATH HE STILL RUINS EVERYTHINGGGGGGGGGG
Well, the good thing is that Firestar is finaaaaally dead (don't hate me....) but I don't like Bramblestar either (pllleeeaaassseee don't hate meeee). Also, after the battle, NO ONE mentioned any dead cat but Firestar!!!! It was all, 'oh no! Firestar! Our noble, good-for-nothing, way too nice, super annoying leader is dead!' The Erins didn't take the time to remember amazing cats like Sorreltail, Hollyleaf, Ferncloud, and Mousefur, WHO DIED TOO!!!! Mousefur served the Clan forevvveeerrrr: FORGOTTEN! Ferncloud is the source of most of the Clan: FORGOTTEN! Sorreltail died protecting kits, for StarClan's sake!!!! FORGOTTEN!!!! Hollyleaf: (I luf her) Is super brave and loyal and saves Ivypool's life: FORGOTTEN!!!!!!
Firestar, I hate you.
Rant finished XD

I liked the way the climax pulled everything together, although I was hoping for SkyClan and the Tribe of Rushing Water to show up to the battle with THEIR warrior ancestors. Unfortunately Erin Hunter is trying to continue the series after this. I was annoyed that they continued past the first series, honestly, and Firestar's heroic nobleness did go a bit too far in the last couple of series-within-the-series (his critics were right; he wasn't helping the Clan by taking in all of these strays). Perhaps the people responsible for Warriors/Seekers/Survivors and The 39 Clues should memorize a C. S. Lewis quote that I admire, where he says that it's better to stop a series when people are still asking for more than to continue writing more books until they're sick of it. It's the principle of quality vs. quantity. (I might lay myself open to charges of hypocrisy if MY stories ever get published, just because I have so many story ideas for the world I've invented, so I apologize in advance.)

"There will be three cats, kin of your kin, with the power of the stars in their paws. They will find a fourth, and the battle between light and dark will be won. A new leader will rise from the shadows of his death, and the clans will survive beyond the memories of his memories. This is how it has always been, and how it will always be."

Spoilers!

So as the Clans prepare for the final battle against the Dark Forest, even the StarClan is divided and Jayfeather is confined to camp and not able to leave at all.

Jayfeather thinks it's Mothwing who's the fourth, Lionblaze thinks it's Hollyleaf and Dovewing thinks it's Ivypool.

In the dream Jayfeather has, he learns that all cats from the Clans are in the Place of No Stars.

Dovewing's idea of looking at the cat with special destiny was right: Firestar is the fourth cat.

Firestar gives up his last life to save ThunderClan, leaving his Clan in paws of Brambleclaw.

Squirrelflight is chose as the deputy and the journey of the Three ends.

"There will be Three, kin of your kin who will hold power of stars in their paws. They will find the fourth, and the battle of light and dark will be won. A new leader will rise from the shadows of his death, and the Clans will survive beyond the memories of his memories. This is how it has been. and how it will always be."
