Having arrived at their new home after escaping the destruction of the old forest, the four Clans seperate once more into seperate territories. However, Tallstar dies almost immediately, and changes his deputy from Mudclaw to Onewhisker at the last moment. Disgruntled, Mudclaw leads a rebellion, attempting to take over WindClan anyway from the newly made Onestar. Crowfeather, falls in love again, this time with Leafpool, which is also against the warrior code. The rebellion ends when a lightning strike downs a tree, crushing Mudclaw, and creating a bridge to an island where the Clans decide to hold their monthly Gatherings.
