A boy fights in a war in a fantasy world.

3/4 (Good).

It doesn't have any real surprises, but it's an exciting page-turner and falls just short of getting 4/4 stars. The devastating emotional realism of the ending is more than a little at odds with the Wonderland concept of the series, which started five books ago as a silly adventure story. (Somewhere along the way Collins forgot how to laugh and just started using this series as practice for The Hunger Games.) It still works; my disbelief was sufficiently suspended in the moment. But it's frustrating that the emotional maturing of the series didn't get a corresponding development of the world-building. ( )

Literally one of the greatest book series' I've ever read. Suzanne Collins doesn't hold back even if the genre is considered "Children's fiction"
The darkness and sadness but also love and hope Collins brought to these stories was phenomenal. Each story was better than the last and I speed read through all of them. Amazing characters and subtle character development over time is what is awesome about this story in particular.
I'll forever be attached to Ripred and Gregor.
So glad I was able to stumble upon this series.
5/5 (I would give it more if possible) ( )

A heart-wrenching, but satisfying, end to the Underland Chronicles. Filled with messages of hope and doing what's right, even if some ancient quasi-religious text says otherwise. This series teaches that war is never the answer and just because someone looks different than you, that they are not the enemy. ( )

Anyway this book broke my heart and I have managed to reread it just once ( )
  TheWordReaper | May 27, 2020 |
The final two books are really a disguised two-parter, and they are a slight notch above the first three. Which is already a bit of a feat, as this is truly excellent ten-to-fifteen-year-old type literature. The protagonist is likable, his siblings are likable, the stories are complex without being convoluted, and there's genuine emotional stakes and trauma to be had. As an adult reading it, it's obviously not as good as Collins' "Hunger Games" trilogy written for a slightly older demographic, but for what it is, this is great. Two thumbs up. ( )

Gregor sat on a bench.  He had walked a lot today and all of his injuries were hurting.  Seeing the news had made him think.  He was safe for the moment, here in the playground, but people all over the world were suffering, starving, fleeing, killing one another as they waged their wars.  How much energy they put into harming one another.  How little into saving.  Would it ever change?  What would it take to make it change?  He thought of Luxa's hand pressed into Ripred's paw.  That's what it would take.  People rejecting war.  Not one or two, but all of them.  Saying it was an unacceptable way to solve their differences.  By the look of things, the human race had a lot of evolving to do before that happened.  Maybe it was impossible.  But maybe it wasn't.  Like Vikus said, nothing would happen unless you hoped it could.  If you had hope, maybe you could find the way to make things change.  Because if you thought about it, there were so many reasons to try.
