Gregor continues his adventure, this time on a boat! Packed with action, mystery, and 'doing the right thing'. This is a wonderful series. ( )

It is frustratingly rare (and thus very gratifying) to find a story told from the perspective of a sole child (or teen) protagonist who doesn't feel whiny, self-absorbed, hopelessly naïve or otherwise a bit grating. But with the Outlander series, Collins has managed this. Gregor is old beyond his years due to trying family circumstances, kind and responsible, and yet still very much an eleven year old kid, and that, through all his fantastic experiences, is what makes the books worth reading.

In the second outing, the new prophecy plaguing Gregor is nicely clever - while the first book's central prophecy was too vague for the reader to predict, this one is oddly specific. While it's easy to safely conclude that it won't mean what it seems to mean, even as an adult reader, I didn't see the exact twist coming until it was nearly there, which is, in my opinion, very skillfully done by the author. I don't expect a children's story to put one over on me, but this book did.

It's not going to blow any adult readers away, but the heartfelt and exciting adventures of Gregor in the hidden underground world of sentient giant pests is the kind of thing I'd love to have read when I was eleven. And even in my thirties, this is pretty good fun. (And a very, very fast read.) ( )

This review is for Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane, Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods, and Gregor and the Marks of Secret (Underland Chronicles, #2-4).

I've really enjoyed reading this series to my kiddos! We're on the last book now (Gregor and the Code of Claw) and had stop due to uncontrollable crying (mine). I don't think I'll be able to keep reading this one to them before bed, because my tears make them think something is wrong with me. It's hard to explain that nothing is physically wrong, just Suzanne Collins shredding my heart. She has a knack for making you love characters, and then destroying you with them later on.

This series does have some darker aspects, so I've had to be selective about what I read out loud. They're still a little young to hear about mass murder and excessive violence. It's meant for middle grade readers, and I think it's perfect for that age, but there is a lot of death and sadness (feelings a five-year-old might not be ready to address).

I love everything about this series. The characters, the world, the individual prophesies -- all amazing, detailed, and expertly executed. I try to figure the prophesies out as I read, but nothing is clear until the very end (not for me or the characters). The giant bats, rats, and cockroaches are all very unique and interesting. Boots, Gregor, Luxa, Henry, Ares, Temp, Ripred, Twitchtip -- I really do love them all! Everyone brings something to the story, and this series wouldn't be the same without every single one of them. Collins has created a story that I will remember for the rest of my life, and one that I look forward to revisiting in the future.

A boy and his toddler sister are taken back into a fantasy world at war.

3/4 (Good).

It's a more mature book than the first one. The plot still depends on cliches, but on the character side it's starting to feel more like a series written by the author of The Hunger Games. ( )
