8. Retaking Summerheat Camp

By Stormikat

Adventure / Fantasy

Allegiance of Summerheat

Summary: Summerheat Camp is taken over by rogues. Petal, the leader of the camp, is chased from her territory. She and five others who escaped know the odds aren't good if they try to confront the rogues. Petal decides they need reinforcements and they look for more cats to join them in their quest. On the way they discover new territory and the heritage of their Clan.

Based off of the Warrior Series by Erin Hunter, but made up totally with cats of my own. Story features around Summerheat Camp in Tanglewood Forest introduced first in "Hollyleaf's Challenge" and "Burning Darkly". You do not have to read those, but HC will help you understand how and by who this new Clan was created.

Before I hear complaints on how the cats don't know what Summer is, I want to point out some of the original rogues were kittypets. They might have heard the word from their twolegs and told it the their new Clan. So that was the name I chose, don't argue with me. I will use the typical warrior season names for convenience.

Lydia Walters: I really enjoyed this novel. It gives us a view of what could be if we really tried.Also that there's nothing wrong with loving our LORD and our fellow humans. couldn't wait to get to each new chapter (mission). Thanks, Joe!

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

Ayesha Shaikh: I love the twists. 😆I like how the writer describes everyone's point of view and the character development. I'm gonna read all the books by this author (current and upcoming). She's one of my favorites now. The spelling mistakes are normal no big deal, the amazing plot makes up for it. Thank you ...

Jason Phang: It's too short! The plot was excellently thought through, with the characters flowing up and down the storylines like the peaks and valleys of the Himalayas. Thoroughly enjoyed the book and the time spent with Asta and her journeys. (:

Jason Phang: More, I want MORE! Your stories are keeping me from games and (gasp) even sleep! Each chapter brought fresh hooks that I willingly wolfed down (pun intended) and I just couldn't bear going to sleep not knowing what happens next to Lindsay and Wayne. I also loved how the epilogue was done. Excelle...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

Lynda Keosavanh: very well written. from start to finish. I loved the plot and how it flowed. I enjoyed the characters and was engrossed by the mystery unfolding. I could barely put the book down. and look forward to seeing more
