it was amazing

This is my review for the whole series. There are 5 books and they are all equally wonderful. I bought this series about 3 years ago, but never read them. They just sat on my shelf. Every time I looked at the back, it just didn't draw my interest. I'm not sure why, but I just do not enjoy books that take place underground (City of Ember, Tunnels, etc.). The fact that this takes place underground initially turned me off. However, I decided to give it a try, and I am very glad that I did. The story is very exciting, and all the books were very difficult to put down. The new world is an exciting and interesting place (although at times it is a bit illogical).

My one concern with the book is that even though it is billed for 11-12 year olds, it does seem to have a lot of killing and dying. I think you'd have to be a mature 12 year old to read it. There are also some other serious themes that may be difficult for young readers. Overall, though, I highly recommend this series. It hooked me from the start, and kept me interested the whole time. Be warned: You really have to read the whole series as it's one continous story. The good news is that it is all written!
