The cover for the third book of the Omen of the Stars series has been unveiled! (<---- See image to left) The third OOTS book is called Night Whispers and it is said include point of view of a ShadowClan cat. This cat is presumed to be Flametail - ShadowClan's medicine cat. Mark your calendars for November 23 2010 - the release date (according to the HarperCollins website) for Night Whispers! There's a lot of speculation about the release date - some say August 8 2010, while others say November 23 2010. I'm not sure which (if any) of these date are correct - I'm doing some digging into this.
Warning! Possible spoilers ahead!
The blurb from Night Whispers is: "The deadly battle between ThunderClan and ShadowClan is finally over. Now the three cats who are prophesied to hold the power of the stars in their paws—Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Dovepaw—are more determined than ever to stop the flow of evil into ThunderClan. But they will soon discover that this evil comes from places even StarClan can't reach..."
From this summery we can gather that there was a battle between ThunderClan and ShadowClan. This battle most likely will take place in Fading Echoes. What could cause a battle between the two Clans? Its no secret that ThunderClan and ShadowClan aren't the best neighbors. Even though Blackstar can be hotheaded - he's no fool. The battle between ThunderClan and ShadowClan would most likely be over something important... but what? Could ShadowClan have discovered the Prophecy and wanted the powerful cats dead? Or could Blackstar have simply decided that Firestar was low on lives - and if he struck: he could take out the "kittypet leader."
The blurb says "the deadly battle between ThunderClan and ShadowClan." We can assume this means we'll be saying goodbye to a few cats. We know that Leopardstar dies in Fading Echoes. Could this battle be the one that steals her last life? Perhaps RiverClan gets involved somehow?
Perhaps the final very interesting piece of information comes from the last sentence of the blurb: "But they will soon discover that this evil comes from places even StarClan can't reach..." Hmm... a strong theory is that Tigerstar (and possibly Hollyleaf) begin "influencing" cats, causing tension among the Clans... The theory continues, suggesting that Breezepelt is already under this "influence," and that Ivypaw may join him.
Here are some other interesting theories...
Night Whispers Theories
Could Tigerstar start the battle between ThunderClan and ShadowClan? He might be the "evil flowing into ThunderClan" mentioned in the blurb. In previous books it was revealed that Tigerstar is growing more and more powerful - and StarClan is powerless to stop him. From Lionblaze's dreamwalks with Tigerstar we know that the dark leader can wound others, even though he's dead.
In The Fourth Apprentice, Tigerstar is seen standing over Poppyfrost's newborn kits. Could Tigerstar be recruiting kits for villainous purposes?
DovexTiger starts battle
This is an interesting theory. Perhaps we'll see another forbidden romance with Tigerheart and Dovepaw? The possibility of a DovexTiger pairing has been hinted at throughout The Fourth Apprentice. Maybe love blossoms between them and we'll see a GraystripexSilverstream repeat? Still... it seems highly unlikely for Blackstar and Firestar to fight over two of their lovestruck warriors. At worse I think Blackstar would exile Tigerheart - not start a battle because of his affections for Dovepaw.
Tigerheart goes evil & starts the battle
Hmmm... in this could happen, but I find it very unlikely. I think the possibility of Tigerheart "going evil" doesn't suit his personality. It may be more likely that he is misguided.
In The Fourth Apprentice Lionblaze suspects that Tigerstar walks in Tigerheart's dreams. Tigerstar could easily lead the young warrior astray. Tigerstar could use Tigerheart to stir up hostility between ThunderClan and ShadowClan.
One thing is for certain: If Tigerstar is involved - its going to be bad news for ThunderClan.
Flametail falls in love?
It is presumed that Flametail will have a point of view in Night Whispers. Why? Flametail isn't an active, super-important character in OOTS - so why would Flametail get his own POV? There are two major theories I have discovered for this:
Theory 1: Flametail's point of view is prologue - nothing more.
Theory 2: Flametail has a forbidden relationship which plays a major part in the series.
Theory 2 has many holes - although it is an interesting idea. While this could happen - it would distract from the main point of the OOTS series: the Prophecies. This is, assuming Flametail is a main character. What if Flametail fell in love with Dovepaw? Could that make him important enough to have his own point of view? Maybe.
I think it far more likely that Flametail would discover something important if he is going to be featured throughout Night Whispers. What if he learns the existence of the Prophecy? Could that be important enough or him to get his own point of view? I'm not sure... What are your thoughts about Flametail in Night Whispers?
Many Warriors fans doubt that we have seen the last of BloodClan. Could Night Whispers mark the return of this dark Clan? What are your thoughts?
What do you think of these theories? Do you have theories of your own? Post 'em here!

The release date for the second book in the Omen of the Stars series, Fading Echoes, is coming up exactly one month from today. (March 23!)
Warning! Spoilers ahead!
Fading Echoes is going to be MINDBLOWING! Erin Hunter has said Leopardstar will die in this book and Mistystar will be the newest leader of RiverClan.
Many theories are floating around about this latest book in the Warriors saga. Here is one of the current theories:
Warriors Wiki has a fantastic teaser from Victoria Holmes: "Things are getting very tense, with Jayfeather about to swallow his pride and seek help from the other medicine cats for a young warrior who's been horrifically injured by a falling tree..."
One rumor is that it would be Brambleclaw who is wounded by the tree. A rumor is going around that Brambleclaw will be horrifically injured after Firestar's death, in order to let Lionblaze become leader of ThunderClan. Could the injured warrior mentioned in the quote be Brambleclaw? Maybe... If you look closely you can see that the quote says "a young warrior..." Brambleclaw isn't exactly young. He seems to me like more of a senior warrior, not a young warrior. Who could this young ThunderClan warrior be? Only time will tell...
Do you have theories? Post 'em here!
