After surfing through 300+ comments, I must admit, I found some fascinating theories! Here are a few theories I found and my thoughts on them. Feel free to share your thoughts too in the comment section of this post! :)

The following content contains spoilers for Sunrise and possibly Omen of the Stars.

Theory #1 - A Dark Future?

I've heard a lot of speculation recently about Ivypaw. Vicky Holmes (One of the Erins) seems to be hinting on Ivypaw possibly playing a dark roll in the books. During a Wands and Worlds Author Chat, Vicky was asked "Will Ivykit be Evil?" To which the author replied:

"VickyHolmes(A): She'll be pretty miffed that her sister is getting all the attention, that's for sure!"

It has been confirmed that Dovepaw is the "fourth apprentice" and she will be the final cat in the "Power of Three" prophecy. Could it be possible that Ivypaw grows dark because of jealousy? This brings up the rumor - Will Ivypaw be jealous enough that she teams up with Hollyleaf?
Remember Ashfur betraying his Clan because of Squirrelflight? Perhaps Ivypaw will follow in his pawsteps?

This theory, of course, is dependent on whether or not Hollyleaf survived the tunnels. (I have a suspicion she did!) Even if Hollyleaf is indeed dead, Ivypaw could make a dark character, perhaps not a full fledged villain, but maybe a misunderstood cat who could cause some trouble...

Theory #2 - Love is in the Air?

I cannot resist commenting on this pair brought up by Brightstar. Lionblaze & Cinderheart? It could be a possibility.

Cinderheart is a reincarnation of Cinderpelt. It was revealed in an Author Chat that Cinderpelt was in love with Firestar. Hmmm... Could some of Cinderpelt's feelings be inside Cinderheart? Firestar might be too old for her, but Lionblaze is similar in appearance to ThunderClan's leader...

However, after scanning the Power of Three series for possible LionxCinder hints, I have come up empty handed - er empty pawed. It seems like the logical mate choices for Lionblaze are Heathertail or Icecloud. (Vicky has hinted towards LionxIce) Who knows, maybe the Erins will surprise LionxCinder fans in Omen of the Stars... Keep a sharp eye out for hints!

Theory #3 - Tricky Relations?

Warriors fans have seriously wondered the identity of Firestar's parents ever since the hint dropped in The Rise of Scourge when Quince, Scourge's mother, comments on how odd it was that none of her kits inherited their father's ginger coat. Later the Erins revealed that Scourge and Firestar where half-brothers.

With the release of Bluestar's Prophecy, another character was introduced - Jake. A plump ginger kittypet with a keen interest in the forest. This lead fans to the belief that Jake was the father to Firestar and Scourge.

Unfortunately no other information has been revealed, so for now, this is merely a theory. Hopefully the Erins will shed some light upon this mystery!

(Thanks, Dreamstar for bringing this to my attention!)

Theory #4 - A New Threat?

Okay, I really like this theory that Silverstar thought up. Very original, and possible - take a look:

"I wonder if Brokenstar had a mate before he became leader. Maybe he has kits somewhere. Possible new villains? Because they've exhausted the idea of Tigerstar's kits being evil. Both of Tigerstar's sons are evil. So maybe they'll make Brokenstar have a kit that is evil. Just maybe?"

What are your thoughts on this idea?

Only four days until the release of The Fourth Apprentice & Shattered Peace!

The Fourth Apprentice Sneak Peek!

November 24th is just a few short days away...and that means... the long awaited release of the next book in the Warriors saga-- Omen of the Stars #1 - The Fourth Apprentice! Get a head start and check out the sneak peek! Read the first six chapters as you count down the days until the exciting release.

Take a look at ThunderClan's ranks... Leafpool is a warrior! This means Firestar did not exile her for having kits with Crowfeather! I didn't think he would--Firestar is too soft for that. Will Leafpool have the fierce determination to protect her Clan that a warrior needs? To me, she just doesn't seem like the kind of cat able to be a warrior, but perhaps she'll rise to the challenge. What are your thoughts on this?

Don't forget, a new manga is also released on the 24th-- Ravenpaw's Path # 1 - Shattered Peace.

Check out the awesome description!

"Ravenpaw has settled into life on the farm, away from the forest and Tigerstar's evil eye. He knows that leaving the warrior clans was the right choice, and he appreciates his quiet days and peaceful nights with his best friend, Barley. But when five rogue cats from Twolegplace come to the barn seeking shelter, Ravenpaw's new life is threatened. He and Barley must try to find a way to overpower the rogues—before they lose their home for good." -- Amazon.com

I'm excited for these two releases! How about you?

Great StarClan + New Poll!

Great StarClan! Has it really been so long since my last post!? Eek! We really bad storms here, my Clan was flooded! It took a lot of work to get things back to the way they use to be. The prey is finally returning. The territory was under water for a long time, half a moon. Unfortunately my mentor was wounded when he got trapped under a floating tree. The medicine cat said his lungs had water in them... so I have a new mentor for now. She's different, but I like her. ^_^

Sorry, guys! Updates are back, hopefully weekly now!

I've found some interesting rumors going around that I will post soon. :)

Also there is a new poll up! Vote for your favorite Power of Three cat! Is your favorite cat not on the list? Post your favorite in the comments!
