Review of the Gregor the Overlander Series

Book One - Gregor the Overlander

Gregor The Overlander (Underland Chronicles): Suzanne Collins: Books

This is a good book about a person that goes underground through a hole in the laundry room and finds himself in the Underworld where he must rescue his dad.  He must overcome giant rats, giant cockroaches, and giant bats. 

It is full of exciting adventures, and I was on the edge of my seat reading this thrilling story.

I highly recommend this book to anybody at all!

Book Two - Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane

Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane (The Underland Chronicles, Book 2): Suzanne Collins: Books

You can see my review of the second book in this series in an earlier blog post at, About Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane.

Book Three - Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods

In this book, Gregor helps find a cure for a very dangerous plague, called the Curse of the Warmbloods, that only affect warmblooded creatures such as giant rats, people, and the giant flying bats. The rats and the bats are sworn enemies, but the bats work with the humans to find a cure.

This was one of my favorite books in the series because it introduces a new character who is a giant, talking lizard.  He can spit poison and he has very sharp claws, but he helps them find the cure.

I recommend this book to anybody at all because it's an exciting, action-packed thrill ride.

Book Four - Gregor and the Marks of Secret

In this book, Luxa and Gregor have to find out what's killing the nibblers, or mice, and save them.  Somehow, they start a big war with the rats.

I got bored reading this book, and didn't finish.

Book Five - Gregor and the Code of the Claw

This is the final book of the series where there is a big war between the humans and the bats against the rats.  In the end, the war subsides and they make peace with their enemies.

I think it's one of the best in the series because it is the most action-packed and thrilling.
