Rich in suspense and brimming with adventure, the New York Times best-selling Underland Chronicles unfold the fate of the Underland and the great warrior, Gregor. Suzanne Collins is also the author of the best-selling Hunger Games trilogy.
Gregor is summoned back to the Underland by the terms of a second prophecy. Spies have reported the sighting of a Rat King, a character who has been legendary since the Middle Ages. Recognizable by its tremendous size and snow-white coat, the Rat King is destined to bring a World War to the Underland. Gregor eventually comes face to face with the Rat King, and to his surprise, he finds he is unable to kill this creature. His heart tells him he's making the right decision. Will it be a decision he lives to regret?

"Fans will not be disappointed with this exciting, action-packed sequel." (Booklist)
Good book, lighter and more relaxed than the hunger game. Still a home run for Suzanne Collins. Not quite what I expected but good none the less. I believe it was written for a younger audience, but still a great book for young and old alike! I manages to make you think as all Suzanne Collins books do. Try it you'll like it!
This one was much better than the first book in the series. It was a nice listen.
Quite the best among all others
Great action, nice vocabulary, good idea
Well, this oneąs good, alethough itąs ours first meeting
Ok, someone compared this to Harry Potter. In my opinion Suzanne Collins doesn't have the depth of soul of Harry's author. She can't explore characters the way Rowling does, and setup such amazing acts of friendship. Gregor books are good, and a great setting and story, but for me, the 2nd book was only 1/2 as good as the first. I did cry, and cheer, and laugh out loud, but then was feeling stale, and seeing very similar trends in the Bane (2nd) book. I was sad about that. Teh Narrator is amazing, but RipRed had a very different voice and character in the Bane book. Weird. He was my favorite Character. I realize this is all personal, but I promise these books are not on par with Potter. Don't expect that and it's a good read and fun tale that is easy to get lost in.
