Gregor and the Code of Claw (Underland Chronicles #5)
Everyone has been trying to keep Gregor from seeing the final prophecy, The Prophecy of Time. It says something awful: It calls for the warrior’s death. The warrior being Gregor, of course. Now, an army of rats is quickly approaching and Gregor’s mom and little sister, Boots, are still in Regalia. The entire existence of the Underland is in Gregor’s hands and time is runni...more

I felt like Gregor's connection with the Underland after the final battle wasn't clear. You're not sure if he's moving, if he'll ever go to the Underland again, if he'll ever see Luxa again, how he'll handle trying to be a normal 12 year old again after all that he has been through and all th ...more
I always judge series endings way more harshly, otherwise it would've maybe been a 5 star. It was a great ending filled with action and battles and a large amount of bloodshed, but I personally think the battle between Gregor and the Bane was over too quickly. I also think they killed off someone else rather unspectacularly. The last chapter was nice, but not what I wanted to happen. Or perhaps a nice little epilogue with Gregor going back to Underland would've done it for me. I lov ...more
I would definitely place these up there among my favorite children's/fantasy series. They walk a really interesting line between being meant for children (the protagonist is 12) and being pretty violent. I'll have to compare them some to my other faves: The writing isn't as quick or cerebral as in the Lemony Snicket books, but I think it is generally bett ...more
Gregor and The Code of Claw was an excellent ending to a wonderful series. It's not quite the happy ending that I admit I was ...more
The ending was my favorite kind: Bittersweet. Lots of sadness and tragedy (I admit I cried several times th ...more
And I remember people complained about the epilogue in Mockingjay, and well...at least it got an epilogue. :(
I had a couple of questions about the ending, and I planned on listing them in this review. But I think I probably just need some time to really think about it and figure it out. (Use my imagination. What Suzanne Collins would probably say to me if I asked her these ...more
It's an ok ending for a book in the middle of a series, but not complete enough for the end of a series - I'd be much happier if she'd write another book to answer the questions she left at the end. I mean, she makes such a big deal about Gregor and Luxa not being able to stand the idea of being separated earlier in the book, and then at the end it's like, oh we'll just go our sep ...more

The last book was more violent than I would have liked. I also was not satisfied with the lack of details of what happens to the family once they leave the Underland. Overall though, I feel that the story ended well and that it was good read for us all to shar ...more
This book is the last one in the series and my word does it go out with a bang. Everything comes together for one last war and not everyone will survive.
Gregor finds out that the last prophecy left declares that 'the warrior' must die. He knows it is referring to him and there is no way he can get out of it. If he doesn't fight t ...more
I liked that there was no right sides and wrong sides, that everyone had, at some point, been complete bastards to someone else.
I really liked the characters in this series, although I felt that it was a little random that Gregor was secretly a total ninja deep down inside. An ...more
On the surface, it has all the elements of a page-turner. As Trevor put it, "My favorite bo ...more
This last book is filled with nonstop action, and is thought-provoking to the very end. I like the series even more that there was not a "happily ever after". The book ends exactly as it should -- Gregor and Luxa are still preteens and have their who ...more
It's amazing that she can create a very believable world based underneath the streets and subways of New York City.

The overall series is fairly strong. I think that's clear from the ratings I gave them. But there are some weaknesses to be found. The reliance on constant prophecies gets a little repetitive. I think she herself add ...more
I shouldn't be surprised. Suzanne Collins captured my attention with The Hunger Games and kept it through Catching Fire. When I first began to read about Gregor and Boots I thought.. man, this is a cute story - and funny! and full of adventure.
Now, as I sit here wiping away my tears and trying to recover from the emotional upheaval the last 50 pages of the book caused in me.. I think I am finally g ...more
I thought it was gory and gross and not well played out. I read through all the books just because I had to see how it all ended up. Personally, i thought the humans should have left the underworld. They dont really belong there anyway. And nothing was resolved with the f ...more
