This continues to be a pretty good series. A little more fleshing out of the key characters, and some good, solid action. I'm glad we got to see more of Gregor's family, and I expect at some point there'll be more than just Gregor and Boots visiting the Underland.
I'm impressed that, with this being a juvenile book, the author doesn't shy away from death. In a story like this, there are going to be some characters dying, and Collins makes sure the reader knows that, and knows the effect death has on those that survive. She handles it without a lot of blood and gore, but she makes no bones about the fact that these characters are gone, they're not coming back, and it hurts like hell for those left behind.

In this book I like how they have to pass a whirl pool. Two of the characters almost get sucked into the whirl pool. It is a very exciting part of the book! I also like how they get attacked by this giant octopus sea monster. And he cuts off all of giant octopus sea monster's arms.

As good as the first one! The prophecy was well-written (I'm really starting to like Sandwich). The parts where they assume that it's Boots who was the baby, but is actually the Bane (I guess I spoiled that); the part where it goes "Die the baby die his heart / Die his most essential part" well, that part stuck to my head.
Great book! (yeah, that's what I was trying to say.)
