Publisher's Summary

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.

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

What did you love best about Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods?

Suzanne Collins really brings the story alive. I love the way she developed the characters in each book. She also introduces new characters in each new book. I am sad when she kills off her characters that she convinced the reader to love.

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

The cliff hanger at the end. It made me want to purchase the next book right away.

Have you listened to any of Paul Boehmer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Only in the series. He has a good range of voices to fit the variety of characters.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Hamnet and Frill died.

Another excellent story by Suzanne Collins !

Where does Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

This story and its' characters will always be some of my favorites. It is easy to get lost in the adventures and the atmosphere of the Underland.

What did you like best about this story?

I listened to the first book because I enjoyed Collins other books. Once finished, I couldn't wait to follow the characters to their next adventure.

Which scene was your favorite?

It is hard for me to target just one. I enjoyed the imagery Collins provided of the jungle and the characters' difficulties navigating the dangers. I really enjoyed the interactions between RipRed and Gregor.

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

Yes, but I would constantly listen to books if I could. The further I read in the series, the more time I spent listening.

Any additional comments?

I realize this book was written for young adults, but, like the Hunger Games, it has an appeal for all ages.
