Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everyone in the Underland has been taking great pains to keep the new prophecy, The Prophecy of Time, from Gregor. Gregor knows it must say something awful but he never imagined just how awful: It calls for the warrior's death. Now, with an army of rats approaching, Gregor's mom and his sister still in Regalia, Gregor the warrior must gather up his courage to help defend Regalia and get his family home safely. The entire existence of the Underland is in Gregor's hands, and time is running out. There is a code to be cracked, a mysterious new princess, and a queen who wants control.

Synopsis:

In this action-packed and suspenseful final installment of the acclaimed "Underland Chronicles," Collins reveals the fate of the Underland and the great warrior, Gregory the Overlander, in a stunning and masterful story.

Synopsis:

Eighth-grader Ali is growingand#160;one hundredand#160;fairies so she can get her wish. All she has to do is feed their ravenous appetite for . . . hair? She mustn't let them near her own hair, or break any of the other rules. They are called evil fairies for a reason! A realistic setting plus fairies plus plenty of humor add up to an accessible fantasy that will enchant tween readers.

Synopsis:

Ali and her middle school classmates are raising flocks of fairies to make their wishes come true. But growing a flock is harder than it sounds: the fairies eat only human hair, and the rules for dealing with them are confusing, misleading, and subject to change. As Ali and her friends struggle to earn their wishes, mistakes are made, spells go awry, and soon Ali is up against hundreds of two-inch-tall imps who have very big plansand#8212;to replace all the parents in town!and#8212;and the power to carry them out. Comedy and fantasy intertwine in this lively tale of intrigue, magic, and the power of hair.

This amazing, well written book left me speechless every time I quit reading for the day. I didn't want to put the book down! After finishing the book, it made me feel empty and clueless. There is so much I would like to know of what happened to Gregor. Hopeully, it would be something including the underland again. Maybe Luxa could even get the guts to come to the overland? It's a longshot, but that would be heck of a book. Now, I really just want to dig a hole and hope to death that I fall through and end up in the underland and take away Howard :D (He's MINE) It also made me want to run to Collin's house and force her to make another book... and fast. My only critique is that I think Gregor and Luxa should of spent more time together and Ares should of lived!!! By the end of the book, I cried for the rest of the day. On the bright side, when I read the part where Gregor and Luxa kissed, I screamed like a fangirl in the middle of class [:

I love the Grgor books but y do u always kill off characters with so much potential? The way u ended the series was decent but What happens next? U left us in the dark. Could u make a prophacy the underlanders had just discovered but mentioned gregor has someone else than the warior. I almost cried at the end of the Code of the Claw. Luxa and Gregor was a good match but how could u end it saying they would never see eachother again. If they move to Virginia will u plz make the entrance to the deadlands there so Gregor could have anothe adventure. You could even make a side series but dont let this series end PLZ!!!!!!!!!!!!
