Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Everyone in the Underland has been taking great pains to keep the new prophecy, The Prophecy of Time, from Gregor. Gregor knew from the beginning that it must say something awful, but he never imagined just how awful: The prophecy calls for the warrior's death. The warrior, of course, being Gregor. Now, with an army of rats approaching, and Gregor's mom and his sister still in Regalia, Gregor must gather up his courage in the face of this terrifying prophecy to defend Regalia and get his family safely home. The entire existence of theUnderland is in Gregor's hands and time is running out. There is a code to be cracked, a mysterious new princess to contend with, Gregor's burgeoning dark side, and a war to end all wars. In this action-packed and suspenseful final installment in the acclaimed Underland Chronicles, Suzanne Collins unfolds the fate of the Underland and the great warrior, Gregor the Overlander, in a manner that can only be described as masterful.

Horn Book Review

(Intermediate) Twelve-year-old Gregor, the New York City kid turned Underland warrior, confronts his own mortality in the final volume of Collins's grand fantasy-adventure series. The story picks up where the fourth book (Gregor and the Marks of Secret, rev. 7/06) left off, with Gregor, his gravely ill mother, and his three-year-old sister stuck in this strange subterranean world of violet-eyed humans and giant sentient animals. As the war between humans and rats surges toward the human city of Regalia, Gregor prepares for the battle of his life. According to a prophecy, Gregor must kill the leader of the rats, but there's a catch: to bring peace to the Underland, ""the warrior"" -- i.e., Gregor -- must be killed, too. Collins delivers more of what's made this series so compelling: vivid action scenes, detailed military machinations, and nuanced character development. The plot moves swiftly but with deliberation, reflecting the Regalian leaders' strategic chess-game approach to the conflict. In the end, though the unimaginable doesn't happen, no one is without physical and emotional scars. Readers, too, will be battle-weary but buoyed by Collins's ultimate message of hope. As the Underlanders would say, Fly you high, Gregor. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted. All rights reserved.
