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.

When Gregor falls through a grate in the laundry room of his apartment building, he hurtles into the dark Underland, where spiders, rats, and cockroaches coexist uneasily with humans. This world is on the brink of war, and Gregor's arrival is no accident. A prophecy foretells that Gregor has a role to play in the Underland's uncertain future. Gregor wants no part of it, until he realizes it's the only way to solve the mystery of his father's disappearance. Reluctantly, Gregor embarks on a dangerous adventure that will change both him and the Underland forever.

    " I have to admit I was skeptical at first because I thought it was a little too young for me but I ended up really loving this book. It probably helps that I like fantasy. Gregor was a great protagonist and the Underland was fascinating. Collins kept me believing the whole time, she rarely strayed from the confines of her fantasy world. I definitely want to finish the series. "

    " It was good! I think my son will like it. I will eventually read the others but it wasn't so amazing that I'm running out to get the next ones. It is a young adult book and it I believe it hits it mark well! "

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.
