Discover the origins of the warrior Clans in the second book of this thrilling Warriors prequel series from #1 nationally bestselling author Erin Hunter-w featuring fierce new art. 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.

Dawn of the Clans #2: Thunder Rising also contains an exclusive bonus scene and a teaser to the next Warriors adventure.
