PRAISE FOR Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods

Kirkus Reviews Editor’s Choice, 2003
NY Public Library 100 Titles for Reading and Sharing

“Gregor’s luminous, supremely absorbing quest takes place in a strange underground land of giant cockroaches, rideable bats, and violet-eyed humans.... Creature depictions are soulful and the plot is riveting….Wonderful.”
–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Collins does a grand job of world-building, with a fine economy of words…. Unlike Gregor, who cannot wait to leave, readers will likely find [the Underland] to be a fantastically engaging place.”
–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“[An] exceptional debut novel, a well-written, fast-moving, action-packed fantasy…[S]ure to be a solid hit with young fantasy fans.”
–Booklist, starred review

Book Two left off with Gregor reading the Prophecy of Blood: a prophecy that calls for Gregor and Boots to return to the Underland to help ward off a deadly plague. But this time, Gregor’s mother refuses to let him return to the Underland . . . until the rat Ripred assures the family that Gregor and Boots are just needed for a short meeting, which the crawlers will attend only if their “princess” Boots is present. Gregor’s mom finally relents, on the condition that she go with them. The Underland plague is spreading, and when one of Gregor’s family is stricken, he begins to understand his role in the Prophecy of Blood, and must summon all his power to end the biological warfare that threatens the warmblooded creatures of the Underland. Fans of Suzanne Collins’s acclaimed fantasy series will find more suspense and action than ever in this thrilling third saga.

About the Author

Best known for The Hunger Games Trilogy, author, Suzanne Collins, from Hartford, Connecticut has risen to star status in the literary field. Her works have sold more than 87 million copies worldwide.

Influenced by her college history teaching father, Suzanne learned about history, and especially war history, at a very early age. He was always very open to his children about his military career, including his time deployed to Vietnam Nam. She felt that her father had a sort of urgency to teach them, so they spent many family outings at one battlefield or another. Those tours were quite extensive and very comprehensive, giving her a learned sense of the meaning of war.

Suzanne began her career after graduation from graduate school at New York University. She started with children's television programs on Nickelodeon and the children's WB. It was with the WB'S James Proimos, who suggested she write books. Her first attempt was successful in The Underland Chronicles, and then followed by her hugely successful, The Hunger Games. By late spring of 2011, the first in the trilogy was adapted to film. Due to the immense popularity of her books, she was named one of Time Magazine's most influential people in 2010. The list is long and prestigious of the awards given to Suzanne Collins.
