|Plot Summary of Into the Wild: Warriors #1|
|"Four clans of wild cats share the forest according to the guidelines of their ancestor cats, StarClan. But ThunderClan is in danger, their warrior cats are dying, some deaths more suspicious than others. Then the medicine cat, who has a special relationship with StarClan, receives a message. She is told that fire will save ThunderClan. Then Rusty, a young house cat who dreams of forests and catching his own mice appears. One day he leaves his backyard to explore the forest behind his house. While exploring he is attacked by a ThunderClan kitten, who has just become an apprentice warrior. Once Greypaw realizes that Rusty is only a kittypet, he stops attacking and starts to talk to Rusty. Then Bluestar, the ThunderClan leader comes out of the bushes. She was watching them fight. She commends Rusty on his reflexes and offers him a chance to train as a ThunderClan warrior. After thinking over her offer, Rusty accepts. However, most of the ThunderClan cats strenuously object to his joining their clan, because he is a kittypet, which they believe makes him soft and weak. Longtail, a young warrior makes a snide comment about Rusty's collar alerting the whole forest to his presence. To prove himself, Rusty attacks Longtail. In the scuffle his collar breaks off. She renames him Firepaw, because of his flame colored pelt and makes him an apprentice warrior. However most of the clan doubt Bluestar's decision. Firepaw will have to work extra hard to prove himself, if the hard life of a forest cat doesn't get him killed first."
