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 plague. But this time, Gregor's mother refuses to let Gregor return to the Underland... until the rat Ripred assures the family that Gregor and Boots are needed only for a short meeting, which the crawlers will attend only if their "princess" Boots is present.

    Gregor has been waiting for months for a note from the Underland to turn up in the laundry room grate. When it finally does, it's not good. It's a cry for help. A terrible bloodborne disease has broken out and it's killing warmbloods by the hundreds. Gregor must return to the Underland to find the cure, but his mom insists on going with him. When she is diagnosed with the disease, it turns personal. My favorite part about this book is the amazing plot twists that you would never expect! The only thing I don't like about this book is the violence but it's not too scary. I suggest this book to people 11 years old and up. If you liked the Hunger Games, then you would definetly enjoy this book!

      I love this book because of the red herring about the Vineyard of Eyes. It has sacrifice (Mange), has love (Lapblood - Flyfur + Sixclaw) and contains a ton of plot twists. My favorite part is where they realize Dr. Neveeve, and Solovet are behind it all.

            It is a great book plus it is interesting. (Also I wonder if the UNDERLAND is really real and if it is I would probably go every day until my last days) :)
