Rich in suspense and brimming with adventure, the New York Times-bestselling Underland Chronicles unfold the fate of the Underland and the great warrior, Gregor. Suzanne Collins is also the author of the bestselling Hunger Games trilogy.

Everyone has been trying to keep Gregor from seeing the final prophecy, The Prophecy of Time. It says something awful: It calls for the warrior’s death. The warrior being Gregor, of course. Now, an army of rats is quickly approaching and Gregor’s mom and little sister, Boots, are still in Regalia. The entire existence of the Underland is in Gregor’s hands and time is running out. There is a code that must be cracked, a new princess to contend with Gregor’s burgeoning dark side, and a war designed to end all wars.

In this 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.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arwen | 11/28/2013

    " The conclusion to the Underland Chronicles. The ending wasn't quite as final as I would have liked though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leanna | 11/27/2013

    " So awesome. I cried like a baby. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristy | 11/15/2013

    " Finally finished the series!! And it wasn't for lack of interest, I'll say that because this series is more than capable of dragging you into the story. I enjoyed this one. Not my favorite book of the series; the author changed a few things about what was going on and the reasons they were going on, but it's still a great read. I highly recommend it to all fans of young adult fantasy. I can't believe it's all over though!!! No more Underland??? How can this be?? I think I need to go bust a hole behind my dryer and force my way down there. :P "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frances | 11/12/2013

    " A creative story and likable characters... read the whole series in one sweep ... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristi | 8/23/2013

    " This was a great ending to a great series. A fun story. It seemed a little slow in the middle, but quickly got me caught up in getting to a happy ending. A fun story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jan | 8/10/2013

    " Last in the series and I'm glad to be done. The last couple of books just seemed like the same storyline repeated over and over to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackie | 4/11/2013

    " I really liked this book. It didn't end as I expected, but I'm ok with that. The problem I had with it was the extreme violence, particularly since it's aimed at a young age group. I loved the whole series, but this was my least favorite, strictly because of the violence. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natali | 1/3/2013

    " I am sad the series is over. I thoroughly enjoyed them. I am not sure I love how it ended for Gregor. I might try and get Kevin to read them with me. This is good on audio! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Rocca | 6/29/2011

    " I enjoyed this series more than I expected. I found the ending kind of depressing. I think this series provides children with probably the best and most thorough explanation of war and it's implications. I'm not sure kids would feel so... disheartened with it as I did. Very engaging. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph | 6/17/2011

    " I would say 4 and a half stars mainly for the very sad ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Madeline | 5/23/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book but I cannot believe that she would end it like she did. I sincerely hope that there will eventually be other Gregor books. We need to know more. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 D | 5/18/2011

    " Seemed rushed and leeft unfulfilled at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 5/18/2011

    " I really liked this series. I was pleased with the ending. It was pretty melancholy and open-ended but that was probably more realistic. Suzanne Collins has me as a fan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 5/5/2011

    " I was a little disappointed in the ending, although it does leave it open to the imagination. Definitely a series I enjoyed reading! "

    " A strong ending to a very good series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tera | 5/5/2011

    " Maybe I was expecting more of a 'bang' with this last book or maybe it was there just wasn't enough closure for me. I guess after reading 5 books I wanted more. Anyway, I enjoyed the series, but wasn't thrilled with the ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 4/30/2011

    " Soren read all day long. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 4/28/2011

    " This was a great series, although the end seemed a little open. Maybe she'll be returning to it? Either way, wonderful YA series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 4/20/2011

    " The last book in the series....sad to see it end but enjoyed this series a lot. Great for all ages. I think young boys would especially like the adventures that Gregor finds himself in. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Isa | 4/19/2011

    " I really liked it but the ending was disappointing. It was just like "Mockingjay," (which is by the same author) because the ending was depressing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jasmine | 4/18/2011

    " A bit disappointed with the ending.. So many questions left unanswered...I'm hoping it's because there will be another book in the series. I don't want it to end with this book!!!! "

About the Author
Author Suzanne Collins

Suzanne Collins first made her mark in children’s literature with the New York Times bestselling Underland Chronicles series for middle-grade readers. Her debut for slightly older readers, The Hunger Games, immediately became a New York Times bestseller, appealing to both teen readers and adults. It was called “addictive” by Stephen King in Entertainment Weekly and “amazing” by Stephenie Meyer on her website and was named a New York Times Notable Book of 2008 and a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice. It is now a major motion picture as well. The other two books in the trilogy, Catching Fire and Mockingjay, also enjoyed enormous success. In April 2010, Collins was named to the Time 100 list of “the world’s most influential people.” Collins has also had a successful and prolific career writing for children’s television. She has worked on the staffs of several Nickelodeon shows, including the Emmy-nominated hit Clarissa Explains It All and The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo. She received a Writers Guild of America nomination in animation for cowriting the critically acclaimed Christmas special, Santa, Baby! She lives with her family in Connecticut.
