What up people!! Summer is here and its always a busy time for your faithful hosts, but we’re back with yet another new episode of Thought-Speak! And this time, it’s another book that neither Mitchell nor Coleman had read. A continuation of the Hork-Bajir plot that started in the Hork-Bajir Chronicles, this story sees the return of Aldrea. A character of questionable morality, this story sees her acting more like a foil to the team for the bulk of the story. There’s a lot of interesting ideas and fun character moments, but you can bet there’s a lot of lost opportunity as well. Mitchell and Coleman are pros at pointing out where the authors were genius, and where they didn’t go far enough! So strap in for another sweet book review, because it’s Thought-Speak time!
This speak: Cassie’s hearing voices in her head! The voice of Aldrea, the Andalite-turned-Hork-Bajir that died in the Hork-Bajir Chronicles, specifically. Remember her?! Well she’s inside Cassie now. And it may have something to do with the Arn that showed up at the free Hork-Bajir colony. This Arn, the last of his kind, seeks to collect the DNA of the free Hork-Bajir and help to take back their homeworld. He offers up the ghost of Aldrea to the Animorphs (and that rascally Ax) to help them find a hidden weapons cache on the Hork-Bajir homeworld. The team is all over that shit and jumps on the nearest spaceship, installing Aldrea’s ghost in Cassie in the process. Can the team find the hidden weapons and stick it to the Yeerks? Will Aldrea decide to willingly leave Cassie’s body?? Exactly how many times are we gonna say the words “Hork-Bajir?!” All that and more when we review Animorphs book #34, The Prophecy.
