Imagine what he would have been like if Ruby and Socks accepted him for who he was. I loved discovering Scourge's kithood story, and just seeing him transform.

I read this when I was a kid, and it scared me, seeing cats getting killed was like a nope for me, but since I am older, I will enjoy this more, and I am excited to get back into the 'cheesy' yet 'terrifying' warrior manga series

Well, Tiny the kittypet wants revenge. At least, that's the driving force behind all his actions anyways. The feared leader of Bloodclan didn't start off as bloodthirsty as he became. The authors did a fabulous job of emphasizing that our pasts do hold a grip on our present selves. For some, like Scourge, it is the only thing that holds them to the core. Without it, we could be voids and completely different from who we are now. It is really a sad, sad tale, and for any Warrior fan looking for some background history, this is a phenomenal and speedy read.

Before you get all 'Tigerstar is blah blah blah', He's honestly a poor guy. I'm just saying it…. No offence to anybody.

This was a great book that really gives warrior cats fans insight on the brighter, more innocent side of baby Scrouge when before all everyone knew of him was his cold, murderous side. I really loved how Erin Hunter emphasized on the damage the wild cats (mostly Thistleclaw and Tigerpaw) had done to Scourge, permanently changing him for the worse. I give this book five stars because it definitely deserves it!

OH MY HECK THIS GAVE ME CHILLS. Two things to say though:

1. I am so sorry Scourge (but not really).

2. It's ALL YOUR FAULT Tigerstar.

This is the fourth Warriors book I've read, I think it's okay... Although Sasha's story is more charming in several way, but Scourge's is still interesting. It's sad seeing how a adorable little kitten being treated so badly and became thirst for blood at last. I feel kinda sad for him, but thinking about that's what gave him his "success" now, it's worth it in some way. Or else he would be helpless and abandoned like his brother and sister. It's a good thing that he learned how to survive, fight, and all.
Overall, this is a pretty good book.

Tiny just wishes his brother and sister would accept him. Does it really matter that he's small? One day, he decides to prove his bravery by venturing into the forest. Nobody beleives him. He wants some housefolk to live with so he won't get thrown in the river. After it is made clear his litter mates are preferred by the visiting housefolk, he runs into the forest so he can live his own life. But when Tigerpaw attacks him, he finds a desire for revenge. The cats of Twoleg place ask him to help him when they hear rumors he killed a dog by himself. When he earns their trust, he changes his name to Scourge. But can he keep their trust forever? And how will he get his revenge?

As the cute, tiny kittypet named Tiny is really intrested what's in the forest, he goes out to explore. His littermates, Socks and Ruby, are taken by twolegs and Tiny leaves when Thunderclan patrol almost kill him, leaving him with scars and pain. He wants to go back, but as soon as that happens, he leaves his only home forever. Apperently, all the Bloodclan cats treat him like some sorta wise guy, two cats want him to scare away a huge dog. With the help of his shadow, he scares it away and changes his name to Scourge. Socks and Ruby are never seen again after Scourge lets them eat. At the end, he kills Tigerstar and.....?
