Summary: Gregor gets a letter from Vikus to come to the Underland immediately to try to find the cure for the “Curse of the Warmbloods” which affected all warm-blooded creatures. He and eight others set out on a quest through a jungle full of plants with a hungry appetite where hopefully they will find the one and only cure to the terrible plague.
Why I Started This Book:
I read this book because I had already read and liked the first two in the series. When you like a series you keep going right? It practically goes without saying that I thought the third book would be just as good.
- I liked how Frill and Hazard can talk to animals. This was very useful because his gift saves them from scorpions.
- I liked the setting of this book in the jungle. It was different and weird, but also fun.
- I didn’t like the whole quest thing. I’m getting tired of it being the main plot for the driving the story. I enjoyed it the first two times, but now it reads old hat.
- SPOILER!!!! The worst thing about this book is that Frill and Hamnet die! It wasn’t fair at all! They basically died for nothing because they had the cure already!
Book Rating: I give this book 3.5 Treasure Chests. It was pretty good but, some parts didn’t reach my expectations.
