8. Retaking Summerheat Camp

By Stormikat

Fantasy / Adventure

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.
