Book Review: Gregor and the Mark of Secret

Summary: For generations, rats have run the mice out of whatever lands they've claimed, keeping them constantly on the move. But now the mice are disappearing and the young queen Luxa is determined to find out why.
 Gregor and Boots join Luxa on a simple fact-finding mission. But when the true fate of the mice is revealed, it is something far more sinister than they had imagined -- and it points the way to the final prophecy Gregor has yet to fulfill. His abilities are put to the test in this suspenseful, action-packed penultimate installment of Suzanne Collins's thrilling Underland Chronicles.

Thoughts: Thought the last book was getting dark? Nuh-uh. Not compared to this one that is. The plot plunges into the depths of emotional turmoil and trouble and leaps clear of the children's section! Is it bad? Absolutely not! It was a fantastic, wild ride, that never stops or slows down. From laughter to tears and back again with memorably fantastic characters! 
 As well written as the first three, it holds the reader spellbound and terrified until the very last page! The character development moves swiftly and drastically and the plot winds and twists like a snake through the secrets and deeper meanings behind each word! You never know what that minuscule observation or tiny little slip-up is going to impact an entire world in this book!

Content: Lots of death that, while not necessarily gory, is dark and very disturbing. honestly not recommended for kids! Otherwise a clean and great read!
