After Tiny, a kitten, is injured fighting wild forest cats, he moves to a city, Twolegplace, where he defeats a dog, becomes the leader of the stray cats, and changes his name to Scourge.


A stand-alone graphic novel from the world of Erin Hunter’s #1 nationally bestselling Warriors series!

In this manga adventure, discover the origins of one of Warriors’ fiercest villains: Scourge, the leader of BloodClan in Warriors #6: The Darkest Hour.

When kittypet Tiny crosses paths with some wild forest cats defending their territory, they leave him with scars—and a bitter, deep-seated grudge. As his reputation grows among the strays and loners that live in the dirty brick alleyways of Twolegplace, he changes his name to Scourge and puts everything about his old life behind him . . . except his deadly desire for revenge.

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.

Before you get all 'Tigerstar is blah blah blah', He's honestly a poor guy. I'm just saying it…. No offence to anybody.

This was a great book that really gives warrior cats fans insight on the brighter, more innocent side of baby Scrouge when before all everyone knew of him was his cold, murderous side. I really loved how Erin Hunter emphasized on the damage the wild cats (mostly Thistleclaw and Tigerpaw) had done to Scourge, permanently changing him for the worse. I give this book five stars because it definitely deserves it!

OH MY HECK THIS GAVE ME CHILLS. Two things to say though:

1. I am so sorry Scourge (but not really).

2. It's ALL YOUR FAULT Tigerstar.

This is the fourth Warriors book I've read, I think it's okay... Although Sasha's story is more charming in several way, but Scourge's is still interesting. It's sad seeing how a adorable little kitten being treated so badly and became thirst for blood at last. I feel kinda sad for him, but thinking about that's what gave him his "success" now, it's worth it in some way. Or else he would be helpless and abandoned like his brother and sister. It's a good thing that he learned how to survive, fight, and all.
Overall, this is a pretty good book.

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.....?
