The Prophecy of Secrets is one of Sandwich's prophecies. It was not in the prophecy room, but in the nursery. Everyone thought it was a children's song until Gregor discovered that it predicted the events that occurred on his quest in book four, Gregor and the Marks of Secret.

Underlander children were shown dancing to this song during Hazard's seventh birthday party.

Content Edit

Dancing in the firelight,

See the queen that conquers night.

Gold flows from her, hot and bright.

Father, mother, sister, brother,

Off they go. I do not know

If we will see another.

Catch the nibblers in a trap.

Watch the nibblers spin and snap.

Quiet while they take a nap.

Father, mother, sister, brother,

Off they go. I do not know

If we will see another.

Now the guests are at our door

Greet them as we have before.

Some will slice and some will pour.

Father, mother, sister, brother,

Off they go. I do not know

If we will see another.

Interpretation Edit

Dancing in the firelight,
See the queen that conquers night.
Gold flows from her, hot and bright.
The "queen" refers to a volcano, and "gold" to the lava when it erupted.
Father, mother, sister, brother,
Off they go. I do not know
If we will see another.
These lines, repeated throughout the prophecy, explain that whole nibbler families were killed.
Catch the nibblers in a trap.
Watch the nibblers spin and snap.
Quiet while they take a nap.
After the nibblers are trapped, Gregor and company see them writhe and fight to get away. However, they ultimately die, referred to in this prophecy as "tak[ing] a nap."
Now the guests are at our door
Greet them as we have before.
Some will slice and some will pour.
Luxa has declared war on the gnawers, who will soon be at Regalia's door. Regalia's citizens will respond as they did before: by slicing them with swords and pouring burning oil on them to kill them.
