The second book in the Underland Chronicles was just as action-packed as the first. It did leave some unanswered questions but I assume they will be answered in the following books. It was easy to read and full of danger, yet again, as Gregor and friends unravel the Prophesy of Bane. Although it wasn't quite as good as the first, I still give it three and a half stars plus a half for kids. Teens will love this fantasy.
