The third volume of The Underland Chronicles is another ripping yarn but also one where the quest is really a metaphor. Revelations of the Underland's past are made and the morality of the human's position in Underland society is questioned. Gregor's family also become a greater part of the story, as Gregor's mother visits the Underland for the first time and also succumbs to the plague that afflicts the mammals of the Underland. It's great that Collins can maintain the high quality of adventure while unfolding the ongoing plot of the chronicles. ( )

When a plague strikes in the underlands, all of the warm blooded species work together to find a cure. Being the over protective mother she is, Gregor's mom comes with him t the underlands and gets the plague, bringing more motivation for Gregor to find the cure, along with her, Ares gets sick as well. To find the cure, Gregor and company must travel to into the jungle to find a plant called the starshade, along the way making and losing friends. Gregor is starting to learn from Ripred how to control his being a rager. To guide Gregor's quest is the "Prophecy of Blood", which is much more serious the other prophecies, It explains the plague and what Gregor needs to do to find the cure. Gregor has to bring his sister Boots along on the journey or else the cockroaches wont care at all about the plague.

The journey that Gregor goes on is almost pointless! The only gain from it was finding Luxa and Hazard. They went through that whole things just to find out it was right back where they started. Although i do agree with Solovets actions to a point, it would have been a whole lot easier just to give people the cure instead of hiding it. Other than that, this book was written much like the last two. It was entertaining through the whole story, especially the part about the jungle. Personally, I didn't like this book that much but it was still good and was still very eventful and creative. ( )
