Warriors 13 - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
Warriors 13
I do love curling up and reading for a couple of hours. I picked up the new Warriors book, wrapped up in a quilt, and read cover to cover. It's a lovely way to spend time. I'm not quite into this storyline as much as the others, but I have to give them props for fixing one problem from the last series--I'm genuinely not sure that the cat they're putting to a moral test is going to pass it with flying colors. Probably he will in the end, but unlike Brambleclaw, there's less of a concern for doing the right thing mixed up with his ambition... which would lead me toward thinking he'd fail, but he also has a lot of compassion, shown in work with sick cats, so he could also succeed. I think it should make for an interesting story, but I hope they don't tease too long with the backstory, which is, um, not entirely mysterious, no matter how much they try to make it so.

And yay, return of Graystripe, complete with quip about how he can't seem to follow rules when it comes to choosing mates. I hope they have more in store for him to do, but I'm not sure of it, since they're focusing two generations down from him these days.

There's a new Warriors book out? Glad to hear it. I waited until all of the New Prophecy books were released before I picked up the first one, but I have a long (15+ hours) car ride coming up next weekend and I've been thinking about what books to take along.

I always figured Graystripe would turn back up. I'll have to read the book to see what the reaction is to having two deputies. I'd guess everyone just accepts that Graystripe got replaced by Brambleclaw and let that be an end to the matter.

It's the start of a new series ("The Power of Three"). The first book is called "The Sight."

The issue of the deputy comes up, and I suspect it will come up again more forcefully as the story goes on. I had a sneak peek at the Graystripe graphic novel a few months ago, so I knew there was going to be an issue (though, frankly, at that point, I think Graystripe's proper reaction should have been, "You know, I've been away--maybe it's a good thing that Brambleclaw is deputy..."--sort of the same thing he did when Firestar first became leader).
