Synopses & Reviews
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.
"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
"The cliffhanger ending will leave readers gasping as Gregor goes chasing another prophecy, the direst yet." Kirkus Reviews
"The breathless pace, intense drama, and extraordinary challenges will leave fans clamoring for the conclusion of this fine series." School Library Journal
