So I just finished Starlight
on a re-readathon because I've noticed I've forgot a bit of what happened in the New Prophecy and I am a little astounded by it. I expected it to be very rushed with a lot of stuff happening. The only thing I found was that the Starlight Leafpool was very different from the rest of the TNP Leafpaw. However I don't think we see a lot of Leafpool without reacting to everyone else which meant usually everything she does is a reaction to another character's actions. However she does make a bit of proactive decisions to. I guess I'll call her "neutractive". Awesome word-inventing skills, Neon!
Thank you, mirror Neon.
But mainly what I was worrying about was Onewhisker and WindClan. I know Onestar destroys the relationship between ThunderClan and WindClan, but I managed to related to Onewhisker more now because I saw how much of things of WindClan was from ThunderClan's donations and help. However, like the BloodClan battle, Mudclaw's challenge is way too short. BloodClan fight was about 30 pages. Mudclaw's...was 16 pages long, including when Leafpool had her dream about Crowfeather. That's my second disappointment; the battle was way too short. My third is that it's a little hard to get invested for the first 100 pages. And maybe the 80 pages after that.
What were your thoughts about Twilight? About Onestar? Leafpool or someone?
