After the sharp-eyed jay and the roaring lion, peace will come. . . . Four warrior Clans have shared the land around the lake as equals for many moons. But a prophecy foretells that three ThunderClan cats will hold the power of the stars in their paws. Jayfeather and Lionblaze know that they are two of the cats in the prophecy. Now the brothers must wait for a sign from StarClan to discover the identity of the third cat. Meanwhile, Dovekit and Ivykit-kin of the great leader Firestar-are poised to become ThunderClan apprentices. Soon one sister will have an ominous dream-and will begin to realize that she possesses mystical skills unmatched by any other cat. In the midst of a cruel season that threatens the lives of all four warrior Clans, bonds will be forged, promises made, and three young cats will start to unravel the secrets that bind them together.

An amazing start to the Omen of the Stars series 👍.

A book I owned myself even though I didnt borrow it from the library, but I want to give some insights about this book.
I liked this book very much. My favorite character is Dovepaw, she-cat, daughter of Whitewing. She is brave and heroic to be chosen to go on the quest to save the lake. She and her allies defeated the badgers and filled the lake with water again. Very nice book.

I personally don't find this book or this series very interesting, they keep going on about one little thing that happened, so boringgggggggggggg.

Four tribes of cats are in need of prey due to a famine that has overcome the land. Star clan makes a prophecy that three cats with unnatural powers will rise to help the starving tribes. Two cats, Lionblaze and Jayfeather find out that they are two of the three cats in the prophecy but the third is not found. This book is highly recommended to you by the Big_Boss721.

Of the two sisters (Dovekit and Ivykit), I initially liked Ivykit more. But over progression, the personality of Dovepaw seemed a little easier to work with. Ivypaw is a little more rash and doesn't seem to have as cool as a head. This comparison might be a bit like the sisterhood of Leafpool and Squirrelflight, the sisters in the previous books. The fresh start to a new "six" series hits it with just enough speed at running the course, and another prophecy (why is it always prophecies?) issued down is pondered. What next?

After the death of Hollyleaf, Jayfeather and Lionblaze know that they must find out who the third of their prophecy is. Meanwhile, Dovekit and Ivykit are poised to become apprentices. They are the daughters of Whitewing, who is the daughter of Cloudtail, who is the nephew of Firestar. They are the kin of Firestar, like the prophecy said. "There will be three, kin of your kin..." Jayfeather and Lionblaze know either Ivykit or Dovekit must be their third, they need only wait for the one to show their power. And when Dovekit senses something so far away that not even Jayfeather could smell it, she does just that. But when Jayfeather and Lionblaze confront her and tell her of the prophecy, she is terrified. She only wants to be like her sister, and the rest of the clan. But unfortunately, that is not her destiny. Her destiny is much greater than her sister or the rest of her clan.

A drought has hit the forest, and all the Clans are suffering. When it is discovered that Dovepaw can see and hear events occuring from far away, she finds out that a beaver dam is causing their troubles. A patrol of two cats from each Clan goes to deconstruct the dam. In the ensuing battle with the beavers, Rippletail of RiverClan is killed, but the dam is broken, restoring water flow to the lake. Dovepaw is the Fourth Apprentice, who will complete the prophecy of the Three.
