Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane by Suzanne Collins
Surprisingly, book 2 in the Gregor the Overlander series was as good as a second book can get. It kept up the momentum of the first installment, was action packed, carried a consistent 'overlander' story line while the underland story took shape. Given my dislike for fantasy and science fiction, I am impressed by how much I'm enjoying reading the series. The prophecy in this story was alluded to in the first book, so it came as no surprise that this novel is based off of Underland founder Sandwich's second prophecy. If you like talking bats, spiders, roaches and rats, then this series is for you!
