At one point, while reading the second book in the series, Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane, I was so shocked by something that happened that I had to put the book down. But, of course, soon enough, I picked it right back up and finished that book and the next three. Love them! I think you will, too, if you like fantasy and adventure stories.
I know these books already have fans at our school. I just looked at our library catalog and all five are checked! Fantastic!!
