Gregor prepares to fight the Bane and die in battle while his sister tries to break the Code of Claw. The rats enlist the diggers to help attack Regalia while the Bane begins behaving more and more erratically.
The fifth and last Gregor the Overlander book, Gregor and the Code of Claw, brings the Underland to the war they have been on the brink of since Gregor arrived the first time. Once again the Underlanders view everything in terms of Sandwich’s prophecies (about which Ripred has some excellent points). The end is a bit unsettling, mainly because war is never tidy and leaves scars both visible and invisible. It certainly didn’t end quite how I wanted it to, but the ending was still quite satisfactory to me (though my 9 year old son said, “Worst. Ending. Ever.” mainly because he wanted it to go on longer). I highly recommend the entire Gregor the Overlander series.
