Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's only a few months since Gregor and Boots returned from the Underland, leaving their mother behind to heal from the plague. Though Gregor's family receives frequent updates on her condition, they all know Gregor must return to fulfill his role as the warrior who is key to the Underlanders' survival. Accompanied by his now-talkative little sister Boots, still considered the honorary "princess," Gregor joins forces with another princess — 12-year-old Luxa — and Ripred the rat to defend the Underlanders and the vulnerable "Nibblers," or mice, from the rat army.

Review:

"This fourth book in 'The Underland Chronicles' seems primarily transitional,: identifying possible genocide, hinting at prophecies, and leaving Regalia arming to fight an onslaught of giant rats....Fans will be panting for this next installment." VOYA

Review:

"The breathless pace, intense drama, and extraordinary challenges will leave fans clamoring for the conclusion of this fine series." School Library Journal

Review:

"The cliffhanger ending will leave readers gasping as Gregor goes chasing another prophecy, the direst yet." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

For generations, rats have run the mice out of whatever lands they've claimed. Now the mice are disappearing, and Luxa is determined to find out why. Gregor joins her on a fact-finding mission, only to be drawn into a brewing conflict and his most gripping quest yet. The fourth volume of the "Underworld Chronicles" is sure to leave your fantasy-lover on the edge of his seat.

Synopsis:

Follow Gregor in the fourth enthralling adventure in Suzanne Collins' New York Times bestselling Underland Chronicles — with gorgeous new cover art coming July 1st!

In Book 4 of the bestselling Underland Chronicles, Gregor is drawn ever deeper into a brewing crisis. For generations, rats have run the mice out of whatever lands they've claimed, keeping them constantly on the move. But now the mice are disappearing and the young queen Luxa is determined to find out why.

Gregor and Boots join Luxa on a simple fact-finding mission. But when the true fate of the mice is revealed, it is something far more sinister than they had imagined — and it points the way to the final prophecy Gregor has yet to fulfill. His abilities are put to the test in this suspenseful, action-packed penultimate installment of Suzanne Collins's thrilling Underland Chronicles.
