In this book Gregor lost Boots in Central park. Then he discovered Temp’s leg, so he followed it and went to the waterway drop. Ares told him to drop so he dropped down and Ares caught him. They flew to Regalia and visited Vikus. Vikus told them they had to take Boots down to the Underland because she was in danger of being killed. In the prophecy it says that the baby has to die, and everybody thinks it is Boots. They go on a journey to kill the Bane. They meet gigantic squids, Howard’s bat Pandora gets swallowed by mites, they almost got swallowed by a whirlpool, and in the end giant serpents attack them. Gregor and Ares go to find the bane. He almost kills the Bane but instead smashes his sword in a rock. He and Ares brought the Bane to Ripred and fly’s back to Regalia. In Regalia they are put on trial for not killing the Bane. Then Nerrisa makes the final decision of not killing them. She said that they weren’t supposed to kill the Bane. In the end Gregor and Boots go home.
The main character in the book is Gregor. He is brave because even though he is only twelve he maintained to kill rats and fight. He also adapts very well because he adapted to eating raw fish and he doesn’t scream when he gets scars anymore.
My connection is with the hero’s journey. He departed from Central park. Some of the trials he faced was they meet gigantic squids, Pandora gets swallowed by mites, they almost got swallowed by a whirlpool, and in the end giant serpents attack them. He went back home by Central park.
