The Warriors Series in Order of Publication

The Warriors Series in Order – The Warriors is a series of novels, an adventurous fictional drama of the sylvan cats living in the Clans cluster—a pen name, Erin Hunter, plots the warriors. Erin Hunter is a collaboration of authors who make The Warriors one of the top book series. Kate Cary, Cherith Baldry, Tui T. Sutherland, and editor Victoria Holmes collectively develop this alias.

The world’s best publishing company publishes The Warrior’s novels, and it is also a part of the first five English publishing companies, Harper Collins. Locations for this series are made in a mythical manner, and initially, White Harts Wood was chosen, but after several times, its location is shifted to Sanctuary Lake. 

The idea to write this series comes from Hunters, who reflect the world’s iniquity and show the love for cats and deference for nature in all its form. This series’ story is about feral cats who initially lived together in a forest around a lake. Because of the destruction by the humans, they left that place and separated into five groups. 

There are many characters, so the wild cats are introduced as Clans such as Thunderclan, Windclan, Riverclan, Shadowclan, Skyclan. Clans adapted themselves according to their domain, and they have conflicts, but they are also concerned for each other. 

These clans are affianced by Starclan (spirits of clans); After the death in pursuance of their deed, while they are alive, Starclan decides to reside with the cats in a paradisiacal forest and dark forest. Clans living in Dark forest are isolated; However, living in the dark forest is a kind of punishment for the cats.
