I finally got my hands on an advanced reader’s copy of the third installment in Suzanne Collins’ Underland Chronicles: Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods. I’m a big fan of the series thus far and this book did not disappoint. Gregor once again returns to the underground world to play out his part in the mysterious Prophecy of Blood. A deadly disease threatens the lives of all who inhabit this world, including friends from Gregor’s previous adventures as well as his mother. The action and suspense are non-stop in this vividly drawn fantasy world. I’d recommend it for 4-6 graders, especially reluctant readers who will find themselves sucked in from the first page.
