Welcome back to Thought-Speak! We’re entering filler territory this time, with The Exposed kicking off the long line of ghost-written books in the series. The K.A. cannongate is few and far between from here on out, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a lot of good books still to come! Unfortunately, that’s not exactly the case here in this latest episode… Here we have a Rachel book that does little else than introduce a minor sub-villain and give us some more Chee time. I don’t think it’s a surprise to anyone that this book isn’t exactly the most popular entry among the fandom, and we’re going to dive in and discuss exactly what went wrong here, and how it could have been so much more!

This speak: After some quick subplot melodrama, Rachel and Cassie end up at the mall (surprise surprise) where they quite conveniently encounter a malfunctioning Erek. Oh no! After helping to bail out the Chee, the Animorphs (and Ax!) are off on another wildly inconvenient mission. This time, it’s another ocean adventure, as the team takes forever to acquire the perfect morph to reach the bottom of the ocean. That’s where the big doggy spaceship is. What lies below, inside the Chee’s hidden spacecraft? Nothing. Nothing at all. How will the Animorphs (and Ax!) get outta this jim-jam?! *Shrug* All that and more when we review Animorphs book, #27, The Exposed.
