A History of Modern Political Thought: Major Political Thinkers from Hobbes to Marx by Iain Hampsher-Monk
Gregor the Overlander Chronicles
The Plague/The Curse of the Warmbloods
In those intervening weeks, Gregor has nervously read and reread the prophecy scroll given him by Nerissa, the prophetess-queen of Regalia, an underground human colony nestled deep beneath New York City. This latest scroll, "The Prophecy of Blood," foretells the coming of a dreadful plague that will destroy all warm-blooded creatures in the Underland: the humans as well as the oversized rats, bats, and mice. Now the plague is upon them, and in order to find the cure, Gregor, his little sister, Boots, and delegates from all at-risk parties including Gregor's old comrades Ripred, the rager rat, and Temp, the giant cockroach must travel through a jungle of predatory plants to the Vineyard of Eyes, harvest a star-shaped plant, and bring it back to Regalia, where human scientists will derive a cure from it. This third book explores as many hard questions about violence and power and their uses as did the [End Page 11] second; throughout the narrative, Gregor must make decisions based on uncertain priorities. His evolution from a scared, unwilling combatant in the first book to a morally responsible, talented warrior is here combined with a growing awareness of others' pain and an increasing tendency to mouth off; this balance between capability, generosity, and immaturity makes his character realistic and appealing.

Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods is the third book in the Underland Chronicles. It was published in the U. After receiving many letters from the Underlanders about Luxa 's whereabouts, Gregor finds a note in the laundry room. Hoping to find out where his friend is, he discovers that the Prophecy of Blood has struck, and his bond, Ares , is infected with the plague. In order to convince Gregor's mother to let him go back to the Underland to find the cure, Ripred sends a message to their apartment.
The plague only affects warmblood creatures and so is named the curse of the warmbloods. A troup of characters, including Gregor, Boots, Temp, and Ripred must journey to a field in which the said cure of the plague grows. Once they are there the group is attacked by giant ants and several die, including Frill and Hamlet. The remaining survivers then conclude that Dr. Neveeve, who is supposedly the main leader in developing a cure for the plague is actually the scientist in head of creating the sickness, along with Solovet, to use as a weapon against the Gnawers.
