Uncharacteristically violent, not what we expected.

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

he's so cute when he's small! I kind of wish that scourge had just stayed nice. click "place hold" right now if you want to read an awesome book!!! as for the other warriors books READ THEM TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

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?

The Rise of Scourge follows the leader of BloodClan from his kittenhood as Tiny, to his subsequent rising to the role of leader of BloodClan, the gang of city strays.

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.....?
