"It is forbidden for a reason, young one. Love makes you weak, a fraction of yourself. It keeps you from being the best you can be and that is why we must mask it. Ambition, intelligence, strength - now those are qualities that will get you through this harsh life. But being loving, compassionate, kind? Those are the best ways to get yourself killed."

Generations after the Masked Uprising and the fall of StarClan, DarkClan's way of life is no less harsh. Emotions are strictly forbidden and any talk of the Old Life is considered treasonous and punishable by death. It is in this cruel setting that Nightpaw finds himself apprenticed to the only cat with an ounce of freedom: the truth-teller, a cat specifically chosen by the Masked to remember the history of DarkClan.

Yet, Nightpaw doubts the truth in the truth-teller's stories and finds them even harder to reconcile when he is visited by someone he'd been taught no longer exists. Caught between fear and curiosity, the truth-teller's apprentice finds himself stuck between two versions of the Clan's history - two truths where there should only be one.

And he will stop at nothing until the truth is unmasked.

// I have the story rated as teen. Please be warned that there will be a lot of bloodshed and dark matters discussed in this novel.

Every time I hear blue and cream, now and later in the book, I think of it as a light blue instead of gray and it's really pretty XD

Shadowpelt is the name of one of my characters, I feel threatened
I looked up pictures of dilute torties and the first on the pop up was this one with derpy eyes and now I can't stop imagining Dawnstar with crossed eyes XD

I like the allegiances, and I'm curious to see what Truth-Tellers and Guardians of Truth are. My favorite cat would have to be Minkpaw or Snailpaw.

This is amazing! I'm going to be binge-reading this whole series, so expect lots of comments from me.
