Episode 48 - Into the Wild (Warriors #1/Warrior Cats #1) by Erin Hunter

76 minutes

Ah, cats - who doesn't love a good cat video or cat meme? The world is full of cat-themed things, so it's only natural that a cat fantasy series would eventually appear.

If you really love cats, the collective corporate consciousness that is Erin Hunter has got you covered! The Warriors series (more commonly known as the Warrior Cats series) has cat nurses, leaders, queens, fights, and enough compound cat names and cat vocabulary words to make you question your sanity within minutes of starting the first book!

Sure, this series is for kids/tweens, but when things like Redwall, Mousegard - or, hell, even Animorphs - already exist, there's just no room for a cheap, fantasy-by-committee series of 81 god damned books about how glorious cats could be if they found religion through ghosts.

P.S. Check out the Helpless Romantics podcast if you want to mix it up with reviews of a terrible TV show instead of a terrible book!
