And the deeper marks - the ones made by the mandibles of gigantic ants during a battle - they could be found on most of the rest of his body, although his legs had borne the brunt of the attack. The scars had flattened out a little, but the silvery white color made them far too noticeable for him to wear short sleeves or cutoffs. While none of this had mattered when it was cold out and he had had to wear warm clothing, in the ninety-plus temperatures of July it was a real issue. She was better off in the Underland in a lot of ways. Even if it was miles beneath their apartment and she missed them all so much. The human city of Regalia had doctors and plenty of good food - the temperature was always comfortable. The people down there treated his mom like a queen.

Gregor the Overlander: Underland Chronicles, Book 1. Suzanne Collins. Gregor's decision not to kill the Bane in book 2 seems to have brought dire consequences to Regalia and the nibblers (mice).

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. It picks up soon after the end of Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods. The novel opens with Gregor’s little sister Lizzie preparing to go to camp, while Gregor and Boots head down to the Underland. Ripred introduces Gregor to the now-teenaged Pearlpelt so Gregor can observe the Bane’s violent instability, and choose to kill him before he ends up in a leadership position. Gregor is uncomfortable with the idea. The next day, he returns to dissuade Ripred, but is instead attacked by the Bane’s friends. For generations, rats have run the mice out of whatever lands they've claimed, keeping them constantly on the move. 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.

Another great book in the Underland Chronicles. This one is a little darker than the first 3. My 8 year old hasn't finished and am thinking it's because of all the deaths going on. Looking forward to finishing the series. Amerydbaker 12/28/2013. I still love the series. Suzanne Collins first made her mark in children’s literature with the New York Times bestselling Underland Chronicles series for middle-grade readers. Her debut for slightly older readers, The Hunger Games, immediately became a New York Times bestseller, appealing to both teen readers and adults. It is now a major motion picture as well.

Rich in suspense and brimming with adventure, the New York Times-bestselling Underland Chronicles unfold the fate of the Underland and the great warrior, Gregor. Suzanne Collins is also the author of the bestselling Hunger Games trilogy.In the fourth volume of the critically acclaimed Underland Chronicles, Gregor is drawn ever deeper into a brewing crisis. For generations, rats have run the mice–or “nibblers”–out of whatever lands they’ve claimed, keeping them constantly on the move. But now the mice are disappearing, and the young queen Luxa, who credits them with saving her life, is determined to find out why. When Gregor joins her on a fact-finding mission, he’s relieved that this time, at least, there’s no prophecy on the line. But when the true fate of the mice is revealed, it is something far more sinister than Gregor or Luxa have imagined–and it points the way to the final prophecy he has yet to fulfill. Gregor’s role as warrior and his abilities as a rager are put to the test in this suspenseful, action-packed penultimate installment of Suzanne Collins’s thrilling Underland Chronicles.

Gregor returns to the Underland to visit his mother and for lessons with Ripred. When a nibbler sends Luxa’s crown (a coded message that they need help), Gregor, Luxa, Boots, Hazard, and Howard along with four bats and Temp head out on a “picnic” (really, to investigate what is going on with the nibblers). They discover the gnawers are now being led by the Bane and attempting to eliminate the nibblers.

This fourth book of the Gregor the Overlander series is dedicated to setting up the final book. The feel of the entire thing is a bit darker than the previous books. The pattern established in books one through three is completely broken in this one. The end is quite depressing and makes you want to move right on to book five.

My son (12) was reading one for school. I read with him. I'm 51. I love the adventure! Imagination! I bought all of them that night and started reading them and am on the last one! ???? Code of the Claw. Well, it's the last one i saw. Believe me if there's more I'm lookin for them! I really loved them and would read late... or into the wee hours of the morning when i should've been sleeping to get up for work! That's how much i liked them! Hoping to get my son more interested in reading. I started hated reading too when i was 12. I missed out!

I really never saw myself reading books for ages "9 and up," but a friend recommended the series and I became hooked. The first book had me hesitant, I'm not usually a big fan of child narrators, but Collins proved me wrong. The other problem I usually have with younger age books is that they are too simplistic. Once again, Collins proves me wrong. The writing is simplistic enough to be believable for a 12yr old's point of view, but the plot itself is unpredictable and full of really good twists and keeps you thinking.

The action pieces are also something I did not expect, as I thought they would be downplayed for a younger age. Instead, they are well written and demonstrate the brutalities of battle (even if the ones fighting are not human) and although not the most gruesome scenes I've read (I read horror genre too). I was surprised that the level of brutality was recommended for ages as young as nine, but as an older reader I found it refreshing to not have fights and battles sugar coated.

The characters are engaging and the whole Underland world is complete and intriguing with the many 'peoples' that live there and the differences all the groups have. I cannot recommend how a reader of say age nine would like this series, but I can say that as a 22yr old, if you don't mind reading something a 'the lower level,' I defiantly recommend it for many ages over 9.

While I have not read the book myself, my ten year old son has, and at times could not put this series down. He is required to read thirty minutes for school each day, and never reads a minute over thirty... until he started this series. Summer vacation started and he is still reading. I think that is the highest praise I can give. This series was recommended to us by his fourth grade teacher and has been a favorite with many of the boys in that class.

My 10 year old son has purchased all the books in this series, with his own money, which I think says a lot for a ten year old. He has never bought any other series, there has been a few that he read the first book, then never asked about the next one. In my opinion Suzanne Collins is a fantastic writer, I read her hunger games trilogy twice, back to back, crying my eyes out for a lot of it. He has recommended this series to any of his friends who would listen, and a few who did not want to listen :P He has also taken them to school to read aloud in reading class and made signs for his room "Gregor the overlander is awesome" ect.. He tells me all about the rats and other icy creatures that live in the underland, it has really held his attention, which isn't easy, he has ADHD, and normally doesn't like to read.

Suzanne Collins has not lost her touch. Gregor and Luxa's story continues as it has in the other books with suspense, adventure and a great storyline. I still love the characters, and there are always new things in the Underland.

The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five, is because she leaves you right in the air at the end. For the most part the other books in the series wrapped up the main conflict and just left a small opening for a sequel. I loved that about them. This book leaves you right in the middle of everything, and it was very frustrating. I know a lot of publishers like that because it makes you want to go out and buy another book. I was planning to get the 5th book anyway because I love them all, but I live in a small town, and have to order those kinds of things online or drive a long way to get them. It was very frustrating to be dropped in the middle of a story, and that I will have to wait to see what will happen. I do recommend this book, but only if you already have the 5th one waiting to be read when you are done. Otherwise, wait until you have both of them.
I have been an avid reader since I learned to read in grade school and I've read hundreds, if not thousands, of books and this series is by far the best I've ever read! I have had an epic "book hangover" for months from this series, every time I attempt to start a new book it doesn't compare to The Underland Chronicles. I've read this series several times and it never gets old. I even call my 2-year-old niece Boots. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!! I'm a grown woman by the way, so this book is captivating for adults as well as teenagers, I really wouldn't recommend to a nine year old due to GRAPHIC violence and death. I'd say more of a thirteen and up age range, but that's just my personal opinion.
