This is the end of an excellent YA fantasy series!

The overall gist of the series is that Gregor, an 11-12 year old boy drops into a cavernous underworld to be wrapped up in a series of prophesies.

These are aimed at 8-10+, but deal with some adult issues such as death of loved ones and facing one's own death. All of these books explore this topic, something even adult fantasy series gloss over, but the first book isn't as deep as the rest of the series.

This final book is darkest and wraps up the series nicely. Other readers complain about the ending, but it seems fitting to haven an open ending to a book with such deep topics.

For the adult reader, the few vocabulary lessions thrown in (as part of the main character's innder dialog) are somewhat irritating and make me think the aim is to the younger side of 8-10+. This is even more unsettling because of the subject matter. Fortunately, these were only obvious a few times.

The series is suspenseful and fast-paced and worth a fun read for any fan of the genre.
