Description

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.

Praise for Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods:

Kirkus Reviews Editor’s Choice, 2003.

NY Public Library 100 titles for reading and sharing.

“Gregor’s luminous, supremely absorbing quest takes place in a strange underground land of giant cockroaches, rideable bats, and violet-eyed humans.... Creature depictions are soulful and the plot is riveting.... Wonderful.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Collins does a grand job of world-building, with a fine economy of words.... Unlike Gregor, who cannot wait to leave, readers will likely find [the Underland] to be a fantastically engaging place.” (Publishers Weekly)

“[An] exceptional debut novel, a well-written, fast-moving, action-packed fantasy...sure to be a solid hit with young fantasy fans.” (Booklist)

Book two left off with Gregor reading the Prophecy of Blood: a prophecy that calls for Gregor and Boots to return to the Underland to help ward off a deadly plague. But this time, Gregor's mother refuses to let him return to the Underland...until the rat Ripred assures the family that Gregor and Boots are just needed for a short meeting, which the crawlers will attend only if their "princess" Boots is present. Gregor's mom finally relents, but on the condition that she go with them. 

The Underland plague is spreading, and when one of Gregor’s family is stricken, he begins to understand his role in the Prophecy of Blood and must summon all his power to end the biological warfare that threatens the warmblooded creatures of the Underland. Fans of Suzanne Collins’ acclaimed fantasy series will find more suspense and action than ever in this thrilling third saga.

Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods

Fantastic! Great intro of the mother. The ending leaves a wonderful opening for a continued saga. Hoping that Suzanne Collins keeps the plot alive.

So much (unnecessary) pain!

Would you consider the audio edition of Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods to be better than the print version?

I would, but I have been listening to Gregor since the first book, and Paul Boehmer changed some of the minor characters voices, which was a little disappointing, but overall, he has had a very good performance. I wouldn't choose the print version over the audio one.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods?

When they find the queen in the jungle.

Which scene was your favorite?

That is funny because it is also the most enraging scene. It happens when they found out that they had been in that awful quest for nothing (except for Hazzard).
Another moment I enjoyed was when Gregor told Mrs. Cormacy the truth about his disappearances.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Certainly, but there was so much pain and suffering from the beginning, that sometimes I had to stop listening, put myself together and get it back.

Any additional comments?

I recommend this book, but only if you have read the previous ones.

Heartwrenching

Again I was blown away by the storytelling, I just can't get enough of this series. I remember a grade school teacher introduced Gregor to us as she read every Thursday. I am so glad that now as an adult I decided to listen to them again.

Beautiful and accurate

Suzanne Collins, beautifully filled pages with a story of a boy with realistic experiences. I loved it!! I like how Gregor faced challenges and like some other books he didn't get out of it with ease, but faced loss and hard times. THANK YOU SUZANNE COLLINS!!!!!!!!!!

Great series.

I really love this series. Very creative and engaging stories. The narration, however, is not my favorite.

I am a convert

Never heard of Gregor or this series before, but now I am a convert. Excellent!

Qualifies as a great book and fairy tale you are sad to hear it end.


Love this author and style of writing. Was completely pleased with the narrator and the book content.

Audible was too slow to get the last book in the series so I had to buy the hard copy--its that good!

Great series

This series is great. My children enjoy listening to the series and it is interesting enough to listen to as an adult. The books hit all the markers. Suspense, mystery, comedy, drama and action. We LOVE them and have listened many times.
