Présentation de l'éditeur

The action and adventure continue for Gregor in this stunning fantasy from Suzanne Collins, bestselling author of the Hunger Games. New cover art coming July 1st!

Gregor swears he will never return to the Underland, that strange world below New York City. But he is a key player in another prophecy, this one about an ominous white rat called the Bane. The Underlanders know there is only one way to lure Gregor back to their world: by kidnapping his little sister, Boots.
Now Gregor's quest reunites him with his bat, Ares, and the rebellious princess Luxa. They descend into the dangerous Waterway in search of the Bane. If Gregor does not fulfill the prophecy, his life, and the Underland, will never be the same.

This book was by far one of the best books I have read in the past few years. Why you ask, because of the story's richness in creativity. The way Ms. Collins wrote this wonderful tale of adventure, sibling love, and fantasy made it actually seem as if you were in the underland. If Harry Potter made you question if magic really exisited, "Gregor and the Prophesy of Bane" will make you want to get out of where ever you are go to New York with the fastest form of transportation possible and search for hours just to find the portal from reality to a whole new world. I absolutely love this book!

A word of caution, you can't put this book down. It is so interesting and exciting, the world that is created underground and its characters just draws you in. This is the sequel to the outstnding book, "Gregor the Overlander", and once again Gregor and his baby sister travel to the Underland to help save Regalia. The evil giant rats are at it again, and have discivered a long lost secret weapon. Gregor learns of a strange new power that he has, useful and frightening at the same time. Suprising allies and bonds form together to protect the warrior on his journey to the labyrinth. The company travels over an underground sea this time before riding on the backs of giant bats, with giant fireflys to light their way. Along their way they face an attack by flesh-eating insects, a huge whirlpool, undersea dinosaurs, stinging giant phosphorescent squids, and other dangers at every turn. After Gregor has again risked his life and everything he owns for the people of the Underland, he is (SPOILER ALERT) .....accused of something shocking! A third book has just been released, "The Curse of the Warmbloods", I can't wait to read it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 strong followup to good first novel 13 décembre 2004
Par B. Capossere - Publié sur Amazon.com

The Prophecy of Bane continues the strengths displayed in Collins' first book in the series, Gregor the Overlander. The book moves along quickly and smoothly with few if any slow spots; the major characters, if not minutely detailed, have enough personality and reality to hold one's interest and concern; and the setting, which as in the first is probably the weakest element in terms of vividness, is at least interesting enough in general terms so that its lack of detail is not much of a flaw.

As in book one, Gregor enters the Underworld to save a family member. In book one it was his father; here it is his little sister Boots. One sees the freshness and originality early on in the book as the quest quickly changes from what the reader first assumes it will be--the search for Boots--to a more dark journey: Gregor's quest to hunt down and kill alone the Bane (the prophesied future king of the Rats). Without giving things away, there are other such surprises in store for the reader; not just surprises of plot but also surprises of genre, so one doesn't feel stuck in the same old young adult fantasy quest rut. The book is also darker than most young fantasy, and the darkness runs from start to finish, beginning with the fact that (as opposed to what one would expect in the genre) not all is well since Gregor's "successful" rescue of his father in book one. His father hasn't come close to recovering and the family is paying both an emotional and economic price. This sort of reality, and the attention paid to long-term effects (with his father's illness as well as other events from book one) is one of the ways Gregor is distinguishable from much of what is out there. Another way is how death is not simply an abstract idea in this book but a solid and saddening presence.

The end or near-end is a bit weak in comparison to the rest of the book as it seems to have Gregor acting a bit unbelievably with only a nod to contriving an explanation (more detail would ruin a surprise). That's the only major weakness in the novel. Once again, a few of the characters could be more fully formed, the setting certainly could be more fully detailed, but one understands why Collins may have traded detail for speed and in reality, the flaws are relatively minor in comparison to how the story and main characters hold interest. Some of the lack of detail is also clearly intentional, as at least one more Gregor book is obviously on the way. If the first two are any judge, one can hope for even more. Strongly recommended for "older" young readers. Younger ones can certainly follow the book, but the context and setting (an world at their feet filled with giant mankilling rats) along with the few deaths might be a bit much--parents are the best judge. The parents themselves, however, might be pleasantly surprised by how much they enjoy it if they pick it up.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Destined to become a classic 19 septembre 2005

I thought the same thing about the first one: this book deserves to be recognized as one of the finest books of children's fiction in recent years. I don't generally pick up books in hardback, but after reading Gregor the Overlander, the first in the series, I had to get this. Like its predecessor, it deals with a fantastic voyage in a mysterious land with very high stakes. Gregor's adventures may bring him face to face with giant talking cockroaches and rats, but they're very serious novels nevertheless. Gregor has to grapple not only with external dangers, but with internal as well--deciding what kind of person he desires to be. Moving adventures with a lot of heart, they're worthy additions to the bookshelf of any child--or adult.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastic! 5 novembre 2004
Par April Irick - Publié sur Amazon.com

Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane, like the first book in the series, Gregor the Overlander, is absolutely excellent. I would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys top-notch storytelling. Collins strikes a nice balance: most of the characters have a great deal of depth, yet these two books are also real page-turners, with almost constant action. The dialogue is also great; that of the Overland humans and rats really rings true (especially Mrs. Cormaci, who made me laugh out loud), and the unusual manner of speaking of the Underland humans, bats, and roaches suits those characters very well (don't worry -- the language is never hard to understand).
However, I have a small warning to give parents: the stories are dark and might be a bit scary for some kids, and sometimes main characters die. With that in mind, these might be better books to read with younger/sensitive children than to have them read on their own.
Don't miss out on this series -- it's superb. I can't wait for the next installment!
