This Blog is Dedicated to our dear friend Karen.
When she left this life she left a hole in our hearts as well as several to be read books.
We, her friends, will read these books for her.
This blog will be a sort of book club for us to post our thoughts and feelings about the stories and feelings we have of Karen while we read.

#319 Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane by Suzanne Collins
This continues to be a pretty good series. A little more fleshing out of the key characters, and some good, solid action. I'm glad we got to see more of Gregor's family, and I expect at some point there'll be more than just Gregor and Boots visiting the Underland.
I'm impressed that, with this being a juvenile book, the author doesn't shy away from death. In a story like this, there are going to be some characters dying, and Collins makes sure the reader knows that, and knows the effect death has on those that survive. She handles it without a lot of blood and gore, but she makes no bones about the fact that these characters are gone, they're not coming back, and it hurts like hell for those left behind.
