While there are plenty of fighting, cool stunts, humor, sadness, and a lot of twists and turns (and I don’t just mean on the bats!), this book is also full of friendship, responsibility, tolerance, acceptance, determination and loyalty. If the plot is not wholly original, the characters—especially Gregor—are so flawed and endearing that you can’t help but love this series. Ripred in particular is an especially complex character-something Collins does very well. He's a rat that you long to hate but who has a good heart in the end.

I loved the ending twist. Never saw it coming. While this book did end happily, it was not too tidy and definitely set the stage for a book 3.

Favorite line: "...a low howl that chilled Gregor right down to his DNA."

Not as good as Hunger Games but a good precursor. Very imaginative and well written.
