The Underland Chronicles #3: Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods Kindle Edition
Gregor's adventures continue in Book 3 of the New York Times bestselling series by author Suzanne Collins.
With two prophecies fulfilled, Gregor is now focused on the Prophecy of Blood, which calls for Gregor and Boots to return to the Underland to help ward off a plague. But this time, his mother refuses to let him go . . . unless she is allowed to travel with them.
When they arrive in the subterranean city, the plague is spreading -- and it claims one of Gregor's closest companions. Only then does Gregor start to understand how the illness plays with the fate of all warm-blooded creatures. But how can he help combat it?

One of the main aspects that I love about this series is that the main character, Gregor, is a little black boy from a low-income family in New York City. It's so unusual, especially when you consider that the author is a white female. As my son and I read this book, we had discussions about real-life issues. I tell him, just like Gregor did at one point in the story, some kids do have water for breakfast, and some boys only have one pair of shoes like Gregor does. I love making him aware of these real-world issues; I think it is essential to his becoming a kind and considerate, empathetic member of society.
Anyway, these books are fantastic! Ms. Collins has terrific talent; I am completely awed by her ability to weave a story that enraptures one. Needless to say, I highly recommend this book, and indeed the entire series. Happy reading!
Gregor, our young, but old for his eleven years, hero, once again follows his heart and head to put the clues together to solve 'The Curse of the Warmbloods.' Suzanne Collins has created a hero whose character, strengths AND weaknesses combine to make a truly fun and pertinent story for this time in our own history!
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.
