Gregor the Overlander

by Suzanne Collins



Before she wrote The Hunger Games trilogy, Suzanne Collins wrote the Underland Chronicles. In the first book of the series, Gregor the Overlander, Gregor and his baby sister fall through a grate. In just moments, they go from their apartment building in New York City to a fantastical subterranean world.

This kingdom, known as the Underland, contains fantasy creatures. Giant roaches, bats, rats, and spiders talk and fight. Gregor meets a race of people with translucent skin.

One of their leaders, Vikus, announces that Gregor is the "Warrior" in the 'Prophecy of Gray.' Gregor must follow the the words set out by the prophecy. He agrees because by doing so he will save father who has been a prisoner of the rats for over two years. Gregor must make dangerous alliances. He must also travel over treacherous lands. During the quest, he must also battle rats. Will Gregor be successful? Can Gregor rescue his father? Will the Underland race prevail?
