Gregor and Boots return to the Underland, this time along with their mother. Gregor has been studying the Prophecy of Blood, but is having trouble understanding and deciphering this one. A terrible plague is killing the Underlands warmblooded creatures. When their mom contracts the plague, Gregor the Warrior and Boots the Princess have no choice but to join the ill-fated group on a quest to find a field of Starshade, believed to be the cure to the Plague. This third book in the Gregor the Overlander series was just as good as the previous two. I read it out loud to my 9 and 7 year old boys and, once again, they were begging me to buy the next book as soon as we finished this one. These books are deceptively simple. On the surface they seem like just a nice fantasy story about giant creatures and humans who live under the earth, but when you start thinking about them, they are really about so much more. The boys are understanding some of the deeper meanings and have had good conversations about them. There are some disturbing bits in this one, such as how a rat dies and also the loss of two characters in battle. Most disturbing is the ultimate meaning of the Prophecy. I highly recommend reading Gregor And The Curse Of The Warmbloods. Check it out!
From School Library Journal Grade 4-7 -This third book continues the saga of Gregor’s adventures in the amazing subterranean world under New York City. This time the 11-year-old is trying to save victims of an Underland plague, including Ares, his giant bat bond-mate, and Gregor’s own mother. The quest for the cure takes the boy and his friends into new sections of the Underland where plants are carnivorous and a giant lizard serves as a guide. The Overlander is again joined on his quest by Boots, his toddler sister; Ripred, the rat; and Temp, the giant cockroach. As before, the quest is guided by a prophecy that only becomes clear in the later stages of the book. Collins maintains the momentum, charm, and vivid settings of the original title. The characterizations continue to be complex with each new book, revealing new sides to familiar individuals. Fans of this inventive series and new readers alike will be instantly caught up in the action and will look forward to future installments.-Tasha Saecker, Caestecker Public Library, Green Lake, WI Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

Gregor And The Curse Of The Warmbloods (Underland Chronicles, Book 3) Paperback – July 1, 2006 by Suzanne Collins (Author) Review
I loved this series as a whole. I keep wondering why Gregor keeps involving boots in so many of these adventures though. Seems like she should be kept in their apartment until cockroaches stop calling her Princess, and she’s old enough to understand the dangers of the Underlands -Read Reviews-
The is a fantastic series, they need to make a movie of them. This is what I will say about them,these are the same words my friend told me when I started reading them. It’s like the hunger games but underground and the fight creatures instead of kids. I hope that gives you a hint. Someone special comes in this book, more like three but you get the point. Please read the rest of the series, they turkey are great
