1. Hollyleaf's Challenge

By Stormikat

Action / Fantasy

Allegiances

Cover Art: Overload by Apofiss on Deviantart

Please note, this story was written in 2009, after the Power of Three Series and before I started reading Omen of the Stars series (or book 6, "Sunrise" for that matter).

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.

2014 edit: I'd heard Leafpool was going to be exiled after "Sunrise" and so that is why she is no longer in the Clans. I also based my story on the belief that Crowfeather decided he did love Leafpool and went with her. So yes, he abandons Nightcloud and Breezepelt.
