3.5 Forest and Shadows

By Stormikat

Fantasy / Drama

River and Shadow Allegiances

Please note, this story was written 2009-2010, after the Power of Three Series and before I started reading Omen of the Stars series.

Warrior names may not be consistent (nor their pelt color or gender-- if mentioned as kits in POT). I have mentioned their proper names in the allegiance, but they are not corrected in the rest of the story. Cats with * were created by me.
