FireStar's death had shocked all the cats of the lake. TigerStar's spirit died with FireStar.... or did it?
Firestar is still remembered as a heroic leader but his spirit is in Starclan and unable to prevent the coming battle...
This story takes place years after the battle of the Dark Forest, when restless spirits of the Dark Forest cats are coming back and the battle of the Dark Forest is long forgotten and features a white tabby she-cat named IvyFrost as the main character.
But there's a twist.... Scourge's spirit has joined the ''NEW AND IMPROVED'' Dark Forest......
A slender white tabby she-cat awoke from her slumber and her eyes shone as she stepped into the moonlight outside the warriors' den. ''Hey IvyFrost! You're on border patrol!'' called a black tom. It was CrowHeart, the clan deputy.
She padded off to join three other she-cats by the entrance.
' Elders tell tales of when the clans weren't
like this, all GingerStar wants to see is more blood-shed. What's wrong with the way everything was when the elders were kits? ' she thought as she reluctantly padded out of camp with the other she-cats.
The eldest she-cat tripped on a weed and fell to the ground just in front of the entrance ''Blast that GingerStar! At the rate i'm workin' I should be in the elders den for StarClan's sake!''
the mousy-brown she-cat yowled as she got up feebly.
PetalHeart, the leader of the patrol sighed, '' I shouldn't be working either, I should be in the nursery with the other queens ...''.
AlderFern smiled weakly at PetalHeart and began licking at her long mangled tortoiseshell fur.
PetalHeart meowed a quick thankyou to AlderFern and got up. TangleWhisker, the old brown she-cat purred, ''That's how everything should be youn 'uns ''
