Gregor and the Code of the Claw #5 by Suzanne Collins

Gregor and the Code of Claw (Underland Chronicles, #5)This book is the last episode in The Underland Chronicles series, and I gave it a rating of four out of five. Gregor awakens in the hospital to find that the rats are preparing to attack Regalia. He discovers that Luxa has not returned from attempting to save the mice, so he ventures out with Ares to rescue her. He must also deal with the final prophecy that tells about his showdown with Bane, a twelve-foot tall rat, in which Gregor, the warrior, will die. The Code of the Claw is being used by the rats to send secret messages, and the survival of Regalia depends on the code being broken. The prophecy seems to say that Boots, Gregor's three-year-old sister, is the key to breaking the code. The war rages on, and the final battle between Gregor and Bane will be the climax to the conflict.

This book picks up right where book four ended. There is action and fighting, and many more creatures are killed in this book as compared to the others. Some main characters do not survive the plot. The relationship between Luxa and Gregor comes to the surface, and Gregor has many moments of reflection. It seems as though Luxa or Gregor is always in the hospital recovering from injuries. You'll need to read the book to see how the author is able to fulfill the destiny of Gregor's death without killing off the main character in the series. Or does she?
