Title:  Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods

Author: Suzanne Collins

Synopsis:

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?

My Review:

I read a book by Suzanne Collins that was awesome. No, not the Hunger Games. Why whenever someone says Suzanne Collins they think of the Hunger Games! This book is just as cool, but is middle grade, not young adult.

Gregor the Overlander: Curse of the Warmbloods is an amazing book. There are a lot of reveals that are surprising because the entire book is about something, but the real reason was in their faces the entire time. I find that amusing and cool. I also find it funny that the whole point of the story is to find the cure to the plague that has been affecting all the warmbloods (because the doctor said so), but the person who started the plague is the doctor! She also has the cure! They didn’t figure out she was the cause of the plague until they unraveled a very confusing prophecy while they were on the journey to find the fake cure. The book makes you want to keep reading because there always is an event that shocks you or is cool in every chapter.

My favorite character is Ripred. He is a giant rat that goes with Gregor on his journey to find the cure. His personality changes in different situations. Most of the time he is grouchy and snippy, but deep down he is kind, and sometimes when Gregor is having troubles he helps him by comforting him.

I recommend that people who read fantasy and adventure books should read this book. This is the third book in the series. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
