Tallstar’s Revenge, pg 330. LOOK AT THIS! I’ve read thus book 3 or 4 times and I’ve NEVER noticed! GUys, Sandgorse DOES care for Talltail in some way. Look! He’s reaffirming Talltail. Right now, Talltail is in a TWOLEG den, sharing a near with a kittypet of all cats. He’s left his clan, with no intention of returning. He’s about as far from a warrior as you can get to a cat who is as judgmental as Sandgorse was, and yet here he is. This doesn’t excuse his actions, but for the longest time, I couldn’t see that Sandgorse had accepted Talltail for who he is. The scene at the end where he explains that he died saving Sparrow seemed so out of place and character. BUT HERE IT IS! I’m so happy.
