Publisher's Summary

Rich in suspense and brimming with adventure, the New York Times best-selling Underland Chronicles unfold the fate of the Underland and the great warrior, Gregor. Suzanne Collins is also the author of the best-selling Hunger Games trilogy.
Gregor is summoned back to the Underland by the terms of a second prophecy. Spies have reported the sighting of a Rat King, a character who has been legendary since the Middle Ages. Recognizable by its tremendous size and snow-white coat, the Rat King is destined to bring a World War to the Underland. Gregor eventually comes face to face with the Rat King, and to his surprise, he finds he is unable to kill this creature. His heart tells him he's making the right decision. Will it be a decision he lives to regret?

Giant Cockroaches, Bats and Rats, Oh My!

What did you love best about Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane?

As the second book in this series the reader doesn't get bogged down with info from the first book but enough to follow the story. I love the fantasy land of the Underworld and Gregor's relationship with those who live there.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Gregor was my favorite character because he would be brave but also remind you that he is still just a young teenager.

Which character – as performed by Paul Boehmer – was your favorite?

Gregor, but I loved how he performed Boots.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I couldn't stop listening to it. I had it on while cooking, cleaning and in bed!

Any additional comments?

Can't wait to hear the next book in the series.

Very unexpected

Would you listen to Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane again? Why?

I would certainly listen to Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane again. I have to say that the first book didn't make me eager to know what would happen to Boots and Gregor, but since it was a Suzanne Collins book, I thought I might, and I don't regret it. This book is fool of twists, turns, and suspense. Now, this one made me eager to dive into the next one, and it made me cry at least 3 times.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane?

Spoiler alert: When all hope had been lost about Boots, despair took place. But the princess got brought back to the warrior.

What does Paul Boehmer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I just loved his narration of Boots. So intense and real - just how little toddlers can be.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, but I cried more than I laughed.

Defenetly no childrens book

After the first book was good, I listened to this right away and was not disappointed. The Story was even better (more depth and suspenstion) and I am looking forward to the third part. But I don't understand how this could be called a childrens book? War, fighting, dead people (or animals)....
