Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods (Underland Chronicles Series #3) by Suzanne Collins

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. Is Gregor right to follow his heart?

After reading Hunger Games I went in search of more books by Suzanne Collins and found the Gregor series. I read them all, one after another. Though the series is probably considered for teens...I loved them and was sad when I finished the last book. Great fantasy and interesting "underland" characters!

i absolutely loved the first book! but this.. this is twice as good.Once again, here is my summary of this wonderful book. Gregor is finally home after his latest trip to Regalia. Thinking there cant possibly be anymore quests..... .............Gregor is right! Later, Gregor finally recieves a letter from Vikus, but instead of Luxa and the oters whereabouts, it is a plea for help.Gregor must attend to a meeting about a terrible plague that is spreading like wildfire all over the Underland.But instead of it being just a meeting as promised, it turns out to be a life threatining quest for them to find the cure themselves. Follow along with Gregor and the other members of the crew while he fufills yet another prophecy. Really good book -Kira C.

Suzanne Collins is GREAT. I have read all the Overlander books and all the Hunger Games series. I enjoyed them so much. That I'm hesitating to read the adult book/s she wrote. I love to read I am 66 y/o grandmother of 4 and I'm buying these books for them to read in the future as they are too young to appreciate them now.

An epidemic has hit the Underland. A plague is killing off every warmblood there. Gregor again has been told that he must help save everyone. Again there is a prophecy. Gregor wants nothing more than to avoid anything to with the Underland. He is tricked and now his mother has been dragged into the Underland, leaving his father, his one sister and his grandmother in the Overland. It is a great story with lots of action, great dialogue and surprises every page.

Just the title should tell you that there's an epic fantasy adventure between the covers of this book. I LOVE this series, and book #3 didn't disappoint. If you've read and loved the other books in this series, this is a must-read.

I wasn't sure that Suzanne Collins could exceed the quality of the first book in the series, but I'm happy to say this third book in the Underland Chronicles series is the best yet. Full of action in an eerie jungle-type setting, this is the point where the series truly makes a big turn in its evolution allowing the villains to look less so as we begin to see the Underland through their eyes. It does get a big preachy with what appears to be an anti-war message, though, it may be best to say it may be certain types of wars and war strategies that Collins is arguing against (in this case biological warfare.) Still, even with the excessive preachiness, it does little to take away from this incredible book in an incredible series. To say the least, I'm hooked. Credit also goes to August Hall for exceptional cover art. 4.5/5

As a retired teacher I volunteer in the library at my local elementary school. I read lots of lots of books so I will know what to recommend to catch someone's interest and reinforce a lifelong love for reading. This series is a favorite. The fast action fantasy makes you want to keep reading non-stop and then go look for more.

We started reading these books during ready aloud to your child week. My 7 year old son won it somewhere but its a little challenging for him. He can read it but the length is overwhelming. My husband and I read aloud to the kids at bedtime every night now. The series is amazing this book is the 3rd and I recommend starting at book one. All of us hate to stop because the books are so fast paced you are always stopping at an exciting moment. The books remind me of several other popular series. The author has taken the time to create and entire world with different creatures and a rich history. She slowly reveals the history and information as the books unfold.

Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods is comprised of what most refer to the second book syndrome in that the story served more as a stable foot for the developing plotline. Even so, the story sufficed, the characters were unique in their own right, and the overall tone was adventurous to some extent. What this book offered more of, in retrospect, was a fiery explosion of tension and shock-inducing moments where I found myself asking what the contents of the book are actually trying to convey. ___________________________________ WHAT I LIKED + What Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods lacks in entertainment, it makes up for in moral value. I came to reason with this conclusion as I mulled all the niggling details of the plot over and over again until I finally grasped where this series is headed. Let me take a few moments to elaborate: So there I was, aimlessly turning the pages all while trying to harness my nuanced emotions of boredom which eventually turned to emotional frustrations. (view spoiler). So on and so on. It wasn’t until I arrived at the last quarter of the book ―where Ripred began to shed light on the political entanglements of the Underland― that it finally dawned on me. All the petty bickering, the tedious quarrels, the acts of discrimination, the conflicts, and frustrations against social injustice and the political structure, all these underlying elements were Suzanne Collins’ medium to address the reader directly about the very people in power today and their abuse of that power! And that, my friends, is where the plot thickened. description You begin to see the corruption gradually unfold as Suzanne Collins begins to peel back the plotline’s layers and you’re left sitting in complete shock thinking, “This is some disturbing stuff.” All that to say, the plotline progressed in the end and it seems to be developing into something completely unexpected. + While I was frustrated with Suzanne Collins’ decision to introduce (yet again) a new cast of characters, I have to admit that the character development in this book was well-executed; primarily Luxa who despite my quibbles, (view spoiler) showed great potential and left a strong impression in the end. The other characters showed great growth too and you can only imagine my great pleasure when I learned that Ripred was going to join Gregor on his quest :D + As awful as this may sound, much of the book’s redeeming factor comes from Ripred’s half-heartedness towards Gregor, the humans, and the Underland. He kept things interesting and his snide remarks echoed a lot of what I was feeling. To boot, I appreciated his candor as he elucidated the political entanglements of the Underland. Yet at the same time, he had me doubting and perusing his motives (he’s such a mesmerizing character); still and all, behind that façade of indifference I know that there is a beating heart, and this is what makes him so utterly inscrutable WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE Full review:
