1. Hollyleaf's Challenge

By Stormikat

Fantasy / Action

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.

Drew C. Elyon: I've only read one chapter so far, but from what I've seen, this is steampunk at its best. The narrative flows so beautifully I could envision every scene in an almost cinematic fashion. I believe in the complexity of simplicity, and this story has that in its descriptions.

Katherine Drotar: Loved your story. it gripped me right from the first page and I couldn't put it down. You are a very talented writer. your main character was strong while still being emotional. The only hard part I found was the repetition of the story from 2 different points. (it made me want to skip ahead) I u...

Messy: I really recommend this! It’s the first book I read on here and it’s really impressive. I loved it very much! I predicted the end but it’s a great cliffhanger. I’m really excited for the next book. Great work!I fell in love with all the characters. The book is very exciting and I’m looking forwar...

Cliuin: A great fantasy story what follows a young half-race on his joourney.

NancyRichFoster: This second book of the Anmah Series was as awesome as the first story, I disagree with spare runner. The names were ordinary names with different spellings, which I for one loved. I am now going to read the third book in this amazingly awesome story!
