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.

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 fulfill. 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Reaya | 2/20/2014

    " Another great installment from Collins. This story is mostly a set-up for the series conclusion in book 5, but that doesn't mean that it didn't have it's own charm. Found myself crying for the characters yet again, which is truly an amazing feat for an author. Highly recommended for tweens, or adults looking for an escape for a few hours. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Spencer | 1/12/2014

    " I had heard from others that this wasn't their favorite book of the series...however thus far this one was my favorite. The others I could walk away from and come back later. Not this one. I could not stop and felt like finally these books reminded me a little of the Hunger games. This was the book that gave us villians that were truly evil. Along with that a reason to root for Gregor and his cause. A great read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Watoosa | 1/12/2014

    " Good, but parts were really disturbing! And a cliffhanger at the end...blurg. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cora | 1/7/2014

    " In the fourth book in the Gregor the Overlander series, Gregor is once again battling rats to defend his friends. This time, it seems that something has been happening to the mice (called nibblers in the Underland). They all seem to be disappearing. Gregor agrees to help Luxa find out what has been happening to her friends, the mice. This book seems like it is mostly set up for the the fifth and final book in the series. The tension is built up without resolution, unlike the first three books that contained entire adventures themselves. Like the others in the series, this book deals with real world issues surrounding war. I was a little disappointed that the situation mirrored history more directly than the books have in the past. While in previous books the reader can apply the messages regarding warfare to several real world events, in this book it is very clearly a description of the holocaust. My son and I have already begun the final book in the series and are looking forward to how Collins ends Gregor's time in the Underland. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Inspired Kathy | 1/5/2014

    " Another great book in the Underland Chronicles. This one is a little darker than the first 3. My 8 year old hasn't finished and am thinking it's because of all the deaths going on. Looking forward to finishing the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amerydbaker | 12/28/2013

    " I still love the series. Suzanne Collins is an example of an author who can make a quest interesting and engaging. I think these last books in the series are a little too gory for a child (maybe would work for a teenager). I am interested to see how it all ends. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen A. | 12/19/2013

    " Way way too much killing and dieing for my taste. Kids liked it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 11/9/2013

    " This wasn't my favorite book in this series and they seem to get progressively darker. I did enjoy following the character development and the fast read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 10/13/2013

    " The series is starting to seem a bit long to me, not as fresh as it was in the beginning. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 8/23/2013

    " I am not sure if I loved # 3 in the series so much that #4 paled in comparison, or if this book just wasn't as good. The plight of the nibblers was interesting, and this book sets up book #5 great, but as a whole it was my least favorite in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly Holland | 6/1/2013

    " As with all powerful stories, the battle of good and evil is waged on some scale. My expectations are high for the fifth and final book.. don't fail me now, Suzanne! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue Stepp | 5/24/2013

    " very good pre teen book "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sandra Strange | 3/22/2013

    " This novel is integral to the series, but is annoying because it ends at the beginning of a climactic battle. Good adventure in an engaging world. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Anne | 12/19/2012

    " Great author. Love how she writes. This book left me hanging where I have to get the next book to find out what will happen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alison Strumbeck | 10/19/2012

    " Probably the most tragic of all the books but still very touching and exciting. Makes me sad to think there is only one more in the series. I have a lot of hopes and expectations that expect will be met just like the all the others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily Goode | 10/19/2012

    " Just as great as the previous Gregor books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liam Thompson | 5/19/2012

    " A little under educated reading for a little entertainment, but it was a rather adequate literary work i might say myself. I enjoyed i would recommend it to fans of the fantasy genre. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 CandyChic | 12/4/2011

    " A lot more characters being introduced and fun! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Raymond | 9/10/2011

    " Book four in the Gregor series. Interestingly, probably my favorite of the bunch and the first to end in a cliffhanger. I'm impressed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sofi | 8/13/2011

    " this one was my favorite (not counted the last one which was just as good.) It was sooo good but also sad, just not as sad as the last one :D "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 8/1/2011

    " We liked this one as well. The series is definitely getting "darker" as we go. But there is still enough humor and emotions to keep my 9 year old daughter loving this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tarah | 6/27/2011

    " Read this one, like the last, in one day. I really like this series, and this was better than the last, though not as good as the first. It got a bit dark and heavy-handed, what with the clear genocide and the thinly veiled references to Nazism. But a good read. "

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

    " This one leaves one empty and wondering what's next... "
