My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the second book in the series and is even better than the first. Gregor and Boots are sledding in Central Park when Boots disappears. Gregor soon learns that Boots has been taken down a passage that leads to the Underland. It is the rats who have grabbed her, but the giant roaches have rescued her and taken her to Regalia. Gregor follows her and learns of the Prophecy or Bane. The Prophecy seems to indicate that the rats need Boots and intend to kill her. Gregor's is the one who has to lead the quest for the Bane in order to save the Underland. He is accompanied by a number of humans and creatures and they have numerous exciting adventures leading to a surprise fulfillment.
