Overview

Follow Gregor in the fourth enthralling adventure in Suzanne Collins' New York Times bestselling Underland Chronicles — with gorgeous new cover art coming July 1st!

In Book 4 of the bestselling Underland Chronicles, Gregor is drawn ever deeper into a brewing crisis. For generations, rats have run the mice out of whatever lands they've claimed, keeping them constantly on the move. But now the mice are disappearing and the young queen Luxa is determined to find out why.

Gregor and Boots join Luxa on a simple fact-finding mission. But when the true fate of the mice is revealed, it is something far more sinister than they had imagined — and it points the way to the final prophecy Gregor has yet to fulfill. His abilities are put to the test in this suspenseful, action-packed penultimate installment of Suzanne Collins's thrilling Underland Chronicles.

"Gregor and the Marks of Secret," by Suzanne Collins is the fourth book in the action-packed Underland Chronicles. Suspense builds with every chapter, making this book impossible to put down! With an interesting plot and unique characters, this book will definitely not disappoint any fans! "Gregor and the Marks of Secret" is an absorbing adventure with not one dull moment! After finishing this book, readers will want to get their hands on the fifth book, "Gregor and the Code of Claw," as soon as possible!

I teach 7th grade students, and it is very difficult to persuade many students to read. The Underland Chronicles are the first books that got these students involved in the process. I personally find the elements of suspense wonderful, and these books completely worthy of being read by adults. Having read The Marks of Secret, I only find one flaw: I have to wait an entire year to read The Code of Claw. Thanks to Suzanne Collins for helping my students fall in love with reading and me to fall back in love with it.

This book picks up soon afer the end of 'Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods'. Gregor's mother is still recovering from the Plague in the Underland hospital. He and Boots make regular trips to visit with her and to spend time with Luxa, Hazard and the other Regalians. His battle training with Ripred continues (he is still lousy at fighting in the dark) and he soon learns of a surprising turn of events involving Bane (the white rat whose life he spared at the conclusion of 'Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane'). A party, a rhyme and a mysterious delivery lead our heroes on another quest, with Suzanne Collins' ever-expected mix of danger, humor, pathos and amazing storytelling. The stakes are high, but with a comrade like Ripred at your side (or is that throat...or on your nerves, perhaps?) our protagonists cannot help but perservere. Aside from the Newbery Award shelves, I can only think of a handful of ' Young Reader' titles that have such rich allegory and power (all in easy to read 11 point type). This series would be a great way of introducing some of the issues of our society (especially war) into the family dialogue. Its captivating in its detail and has an engaging enough cast and plot twists to involve all ages of fans.

This book was soooo good! It only took me a little over a week to read the WHOLE series. Great for people who love percy jackson, harry potter, or the hunger games. I just Suzanne Collins would continue the series or at least add an epilouge.

Collins continues her descent into age-inappropriate material with a Holocaust story, complete with gas chambers and a Hitler-figure.

This is the fourth book in the Underland Chronicles. It was a great book as things really start to heat up in the Underland.When one of the bats returns the crown that Luxa left with the Nibblers; Luxa knows the Nibblers must be in big trouble. Gregor is also making regular visits to the Underland to visit his ailing mother; during these visits Gregor trains with Ripred to improve his echolocation and in one visit meets the Bane. The Bane has grown substantially since Gregor saved him and is becoming a creature to match his name. Frustrated with the slowness of the council Luxa convinces Gregor and crew to meet with the Nibblers, but the Nibblers have disappeared and Gregor and Luxa (accompanied by Howard and Boots) are in for another another adventure that leads to a climax in the Underdark that has so long been inevitable.This was a great book. It ripped along at a very fast pace, was very entertaining, and hard to put down. I just flew through this book. This book is different from the previous books in that the book is not a contained adventure; this book ends in the middle of the action and leads right into book 5. So, I would definitely get book 5 ahead of time to avoid frustration of being stranded in the middle of the story at the end of this book. It is also different from the other books in that there is not a prophecy forcing the story forward.There is more blood and violence in this book than the other books. As the characters mature, so do the things they are forced to deal with. Luxa and Gregor both grow a lot as characters and begin to accept their responsibilities. You get to see a lot more of Gregor's rager abilities and a lot more of Luxa making the decisions a Queen must make. Ripred and Boots are deeply involved in the story too; these are probably my two favorite characters in this series.A great addition to the series. Leads you to the climax of these books; very engrossing and fast-paced read. I wasn't thrilled with this series after the first couple books; but the last two books have made reading the series all worth while!
