Discover the origins of the warrior Clans in the second book of this thrilling prequel arc from mega-bestselling author Erin Hunter. The Dawn of the Clans series takes readers back to the earliest days of the Clans, when the cats first settled in the forest and began to forge the Warrior code.
The mountain cats from the Tribe of Rushing Water followed the Sun Trail to a new territory, convinced that in a land with more prey, their lives would be free from strife. But while no cat has gone hungry, tensions are rising. The once firmly united group has split in two—and a young cat named Thunder is caught in the middle.
Dawn of the Clans #2: Thunder Rising also contains an exclusive bonus scene and a teaser to Dawn of the Clans #3: The First Battle.

SummaryAdd a Summary
When Storm leaves ClearSky because of his horrid ways, she retires to a monster's den. She stays there until there is a horrible accident there where she doesn't make it, and none of her three kits make it, except for one, saved by GrayWing. From there on, he names him Thunder and is raised on the moorland. But, suddenly, there is a forest fire which puts GrayWing's brother and his clan in danger. So the moorland cats try to help, although it's Thunder who acted the most impressive, which ClearSky notices. He then says to join his clan, which Thunder agrees to. But after a few days, Thunder realizes the cruelty beneath ClearSky and leaves along with a cat name Frost, who was going to be kicked out of the clan by ClearSky for being injured. So the two leave the forest, in hopes of fitting in with the moorland cats.
After Storm died in the shed Thunder was born, Gray Wing raised him. But then a forest fire tears through the forest where Clear Sky and his cats live.They are helped by a rogue named River Ripple, and they save Tall Shadow and Moon Shadow from a ring of fire. Clear Sky is impressed by Thunder, and invites him to join his "clan". Thunder lives there for a few days, but leaves with another cat named Frost. Frost was thrown out because he had a deep cut on his paw, and Thunder leaves because he is fed up with Clear Sky not helping old or sick cats.
