Gregor and the Marks of Secret: The Underland Chronicles, Book 4 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
In the fourth volume of the critically acclaimed Underland Chronicles, Gregor is drawn ever deeper into a brewing crisis. For generations, rats have run the mice - or "nibblers" - out of whatever lands they've claimed, keeping them constantly on the move. But now the mice are disappearing, and the young queen Luxa, who credits them with saving her life, is determined to find out why.
When Gregor joins her on a fact-finding mission, he's relieved that this time, at least, there's no prophecy on the line. But when the true fate of the mice is revealed, it is something far more sinister than Gregor or Luxa have imagined - and it points the way to the final prophecy he has yet to fulfilled.
Gregor's role as warrior and his abilities as a rager are put to the test in this suspenseful, action-packed penultimate installment of Suzanne Collins's thrilling Underland Chronicles.

Our favorite characters are all here; Gregor the MC, his sister Boots, Princess Luxa, and Hazard, Luxa's cousin, whom we met in book 3. Of course, my all-time favorite, Ripred, is prominently featured. As with all the other books, the story in book 4 is exceptionally well-written, action-packed, and riveting. The author has a talent for ending every chapter on a cliffhanger that compels you to keep reading to find out what happens next. My son has had many a late-night since we've been reading this book because we just couldn't put it down!
If you have a middle-grade reader (8-12), this is a series they should not miss, especially if they enjoy fantasy. This series is simply amazing. I love it, and I've even recommended it to my 14-year-old daughter. Happy reading!
The action pieces are also something I did not expect, as I thought they would be downplayed for a younger age. Instead, they are well written and demonstrate the brutalities of battle (even if the ones fighting are not human) and although not the most gruesome scenes I've read (I read horror genre too). I was surprised that the level of brutality was recommended for ages as young as nine, but as an older reader I found it refreshing to not have fights and battles sugar coated.
The characters are engaging and the whole Underland world is complete and intriguing with the many 'peoples' that live there and the differences all the groups have. I cannot recommend how a reader of say age nine would like this series, but I can say that as a 22yr old, if you don't mind reading something a 'the lower level,' I defiantly recommend it for many ages over 9.
This fourth book of the Gregor the Overlander series is dedicated to setting up the final book. The feel of the entire thing is a bit darker than the previous books. The pattern established in books one through three is completely broken in this one. The end is quite depressing and makes you want to move right on to book five.
The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five, is because she leaves you right in the air at the end. For the most part the other books in the series wrapped up the main conflict and just left a small opening for a sequel. I loved that about them. This book leaves you right in the middle of everything, and it was very frustrating. I know a lot of publishers like that because it makes you want to go out and buy another book. I was planning to get the 5th book anyway because I love them all, but I live in a small town, and have to order those kinds of things online or drive a long way to get them. It was very frustrating to be dropped in the middle of a story, and that I will have to wait to see what will happen. I do recommend this book, but only if you already have the 5th one waiting to be read when you are done. Otherwise, wait until you have both of them.
