More from Suzanne Collins: The Underland Chronicles
It's only a few months since Gregor and Boots returned from the Underland, leaving their mother behind to heal from the plague. Though Gregor's family receives frequent updates on her condition, they all know Gregor must return to fulfill his role as the warrior who is key to the Underlanders' survival.
In this third book of "The Underground Chronicles," Gregor must once again return to the Underland to help fulfill a prophecy. Accompanied by his sister Boots and his mother, Gregor faces a new and difficult challenge. He's racing against time to find the only plant that will cure a terrible plague.
When Gregor falls through a grate in the laundry room of his apartment building, he hurtles into the dark Underland, where spiders, rats, cockroaches coexist uneasily with humans. This world is on the brink of war, and Gregor's arrival is no accident.
