With the rebirth of Warrior's Wish comes a new release dates thread, still run by me. =D
----

Have you ever been curious about when the books for Warriors, Seekers, or Survivors are released? Well, look no further! This thread has you in the right spot! Listen below are the current known release dates for each of Erin Hunter's works, listed in chronological order, and sorted by arc, if I am able.


If I have happened to miss something, please, don't hesitate to post here, or send me a Private Message with the details, and I will gladly update the thread with the correct information. Or, if you have general questions, you're more than welcome to ask those, too. Books will be listed in order of importance- this means hardcover releases will be shown first.

Wait, Seekers is coming in November? And only one week after Moth Flight's Vision?

That's.....completely unexpected.

I hope we get to see Shoteka in this one.

That appears to be what the HC website says. I also heard that Seekers is ending, but I'm not entirely sure when or if it's true. This Seekers book was the only one unreleased that I could find, so if I'm missing something, go ahead and point it out.

The initial post has now been updated, since I've discovered that they're not only releasing The Blazing Star and A Forest Divided, but also The Sun Trail, Thunder Rising, and The First Battle- all five of these books will be with new covers! I have yet to find out if we'll also see the old style paperback covers, but I'll try and find out.

Again, if I've missed something, don't hesitate to let me know!

@equus , you can look at all the new ones here (http://warriors.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Reprinted%20Covers)! I've taken to adding all of the ones that we have to a category on the wiki for easy accessibility. The only main arc book we don't have a new cover for is actually Path of Stars! I'm still waiting to see if they're going to redo the super edition covers, but I haven't seen any news on that at all.

Oh! They're making a new Survivors? That's awesome! I really liked that series so far (I'm waiting for the paperback version of the sixth book).

Suggestion: Maybe you could put the list again, in chronological order rather than sorted by series, at the bottom of the post? :)

I'll see what I can do once I've gotten some sleep! Thanks for the suggestion! =D

Alright, as per @Dawnwing, I've added a chronological order to the list, and because I really like colors, I added some coloring to the post and will probably add more as time goes on because colors.

We don't know much yet, Grayfur, but we do know the first book is about Alderpaw- Bramblestar and Squirrelflight's son! We barely even have anything other than that and some allegiance list for The Apprentice's Quest. I think there's supposed to be a preview at the end of Path of Stars, so I'm hoping we'll learn a bit more about the newest arc!

I've read the preview for The Apprentice's Quest, just for curiosity, since I don't plan on actually reading it, so I'll tell you all the interesting tidbits. It's not much, but I'll put it in a spoiler tag, out of respect.
(click to show/hide)
It wouldn't surprise me that Seekers is ending, even during the first series, it was overshadowed by Warriors. The plot for the second series was recycled from all the sub plots of the first, I don't even know how they could manage writing a single chapter of a third series.
And the next ebook collection comes out January 26? That's my birthday! Bonus!

I discovered that Suvivors has a new book coming out in June of 2016, entitled Dead of Night, so I've added it to the list!

@Ivypool (pinging you directly because you like posting the stuff on tumblr) the long awaited Thunder and Shadow now has a release date of September 6th, 2016!

Out of interest, are these release dates worldwide? I'd quite like to read the collection of novellas that's coming out soon, but not sure when it'll be released in the UK ^_^;;

I'm not sure, honestly. I think, for the most part, these are universal release dates... I've seen quite a few people from the UK get these books as well around the dates that the American readers get them...you'd think that would be more obvious, with the writers being, y'know, British.

True, though the series is a lot more popular in the US so it's understandable :) I'll keep an eye out on Amazon and hopefully it'll be out fairly soon.

@Ivypool and anyone that cares about the newer books, according to Amazon, Thunder and Shadow's release date has been changed to November 1st! I haven't been able to find anything to contradict it, since HarperCollins appears to have... removed the book or something like that, from their website. o.O I tried the page itself, but it's not there anymore (http://www.harpercollins.com/9780062386427/warriors-a-vision-of-shadows-2-thunder-and-shadow).

Thunder and Shadow's release date has again been changed to September 6th! I'm not sure why, but I suspect that Hawkwing's Journey is the reason- the book comes out in November, so I've added both of them.

Huh. I wonder what Hawkwing's Journey is going to be about. It seems like no one really knows anything yet, not even anything about the main character.

Yeah, no one knows anything about them. I mean, there was a Hawkpaw in Ravenpaw's Farewell, and it's possible it could be him, and this Super Edition ties into A Vision of Shadows... but he just seemed like the typical loyal SkyClan apprentice.

maybe he could be Skyclan's version of Firestar.

According to WW, it says this:
"After being driven out of their home and scattered to the winds, the cats of SkyClan must find a way to piece their Clan back together. But this time there is no Firestar to save them—and their time in the gorge territory may truly be at an end."

"To dispel the darkness, you must find the spark that remains.

Long ago, the cats of SkyClan were lost to the warrior code—until Firestar, leader of ThunderClan, helped them rediscover the ways of their ancestors. Since then, SkyClan has enjoyed moons of peace and near-prosperity.

Hawkpaw dreams of the day when he will receive his warrior name and be called on to protect his Clanmates. Then Echosong, their medicine cat, has an alarming vision, and suddenly Hawkpaw is thrust onto a path he never could have imagined.

SkyClan’s era of peace is at an end. Now they must fight for their very survival.
Will SkyClan find its way home—or will it be lost forever?

Moons ago, Firestar, leader of ThunderClan, helped the cats of SkyClan find their way back to the warrior code. But Firestar is gone, and SkyClan now faces an enemy it cannot defeat. The time has come for SkyClan to return to the other warrior Clans...."
Kate said that the main character will also make fans very happy.
Also, the Pinestar Novella is called "Pinestar's Choice", according to Vicky, and it focuses around the end of Pinestar's reign in ThunderClan. I'm interested in this, because we didn't see much of Pinestar in BP, because it was from a young Bluestar's view, we didn't have a trace of adult comprehension.
