Animorphs: The Revelation

This speak: Marco’s dad has a big new project at work. He’s apparently developing humanity’s first instance of Z-Space travel. Marco realizes the dangers involved, and of course his father is soon made a target for Yeerk infestation. After losing his mother to the Yeerks, Marco isn’t going to let his father go without a fight! But now Marco has to make a choice. Because this time, his actions have dire consequences, and his father’s life hangs in the balance. Can Marco, the Animorphs, and their alien friend ol’ what’s-his-name, Tax? Or Brax? Can they save Marco’s dad? Will they have time to jam in some Visser 1 sideplot? And does anyone  still have their copy of the demo of the Animorphs PC game that came with this book??  All that and more as we review Animorphs book 45: The Revelation.

A Very Animorphs Christmas!

This Speak: What if the Animorphs series had done a Christmas special? Would the Animorphs meet Santa Clause? What do the Yeerks do on Christmas? Will the kids get to enjoy their Christmas break? It’s questions like these that keep us up at night… but not anymore! Hosts Mitchell and Coleman have created, in their minds, the perfect Animorphs Christmas-themed stories. Reindeer morphing? Santa-like aliens? Tender moments between Jake and Cassie? We’ve got it all! Pull up a chair by the fire and crack open the egg-nog, because when the episode is over you’ll be wishing these books were real! All that and more on Thought-Speak’s: A Very Animorphs Christmas!

Animorphs: The Unexpected

This speak: Cassie just boarded the wrong plane… During a scuffle with the Yeerks at the airport, Cassie is separated from the others and pursued by scores of controllers. She manages to elude them, temporarily, by hiding out on a departing plane. But things rarely go as planned for our team of teenage heroes, and Cassie winds up in the Australian outback! Totally cut off from her friends! Miles from the nearest trace of civilization! And still being pursued by Yeerks! How will she escape her enemies? How will she get back to her homeland? And most importantly; how did the writer manage to screw up such an interesting premise?? All that and more as we review Animorphs book 44: The Unexpected.

Animorphs: The Test

This speak: Tobias is in over his head – again! After helping to locate a missing child in the woods, Tobias ends up in a vet’s office with no way out! And it’s the Yeerks that get to him first, headed up by his old nemesis Taylor. The one-time Sub-Visser claims to be helping the Yeerk Peace Movement progress, but she needs something from Tobias and the rest of the Andalite bandits (also Ax) to make her plan work. The team decides to play along and help her tunnel underneath the Yeerk pool in order to make it all go BOOM! but something doesn’t feel quite right. Tobias can’t shake the feeling that Taylor can’t be trusted, on account of that whole torture episode, and the fact that she’s pretty noticeably cray-cray. Can the team handle Taxxon morph? Can Taylor be trusted? All that and more as we review Animorphs book 43: The Test.

Animorphs: The Journey

This speak: Marco’s got all sorts of problems! First, there’s this camera he’s got to snatch from some dude’s apartment that just might have some pics of the team in mid-morph… The only thing standing in his way is one. Tough. Dog. That, and he can’t morph. Why not? Because of all the shrunken-down Helmacrons and Animorphs (and Ax’s!) inside his body! Huh-whaaa? That’s right, the Helmacrons are back, and the rules don’t matter anymore! Will Marco ever get the little people out of his head and find a way to delete those potentially-disastrous pix?? Find out when we review Animorphs book 42: The Journey.

Animorphs: The Familiar

This speak: Jake is having a tough time being leader of the Animorphs (and the leader of Ax). After yet another gut-wrenching battle with the Yeerks, the team is fragmented and tormented and looking to Jake for guidance, but ol Jakey’s not in the mood. Lucky for him, when he goes to bed that night he wakes up in a world where he’s not the leader of the Animorphs anymore! BUT the world is ruled by the Yeerks and the Animorphs have long-since been defeated. Ruh-roh! Join Jake, alone and confused, as he navigates a hellish future-Earth that’s been dominated by the Yeerks, discovers which of his friends are still alive….and which ones have become controllers… All in an effort to return to the past and abort this nightmare reality. But is there a way for Jake to return to the life he knows and continue the fight? Well there’s like more than ten books left in the series, so I sure hope so! All that and more when we review Animorphs book 41: The Familiar.

Animorphs: Megamorphs: Back to Before

This speak: Jake’s had enough. Enough of the bloody battles. Enough feeling powerless to help. Enough of being an Animorph. So naturally Crayak is all over him ready to pounce, sending in the Drode to offer Jake a way out. But of course, a deal with the devil is no deal at all, and Jake awakes to find the timelines reset and everyone’s memories wiped. And this time, on their way home from the mall one night, 5 kids don’t meet a dying alien. They don’t get the power to morph. And they don’t know they’re being invaded by Yeerks. Relive the beginning of the invasion, and really the beginning of the series, with a dangerous twist that leaves all our teens clueless to what’s going on around them. See how their lives might have played out, if things had happened differently. See what happens when they go back… to before! All that and more in our review of MEGAMORPHS #4: Back to Before!

Animorphs: Megamorphs: Elfangor’s Secret

This speak: Our story begins on an alternate, time-tinkered Earth with an entirely different set of Animorphs. Jake is an authoritarian leader. Cassie is a slave owner. Marco is excited by Pong. Ax is the same. And Tobias is in love with the last Animorph, Melissa. This new, more interesting set of characters are swiftly replaced by the standard Animorphs we all know and love, thanks to a convenient truce between Crayak and Ellimist. Now the Animorphs (and Aximili!) are thrust through time on their latest mission to stop one of the second-string villains from messing around with the Earth’s continuity. During their trip, the Animorphs (and Mr. Isthill!) will encounter ancient knights, swashbuckling seafaring ship battles, and absolutely all the worst of human-on-human murder that history has to offer! Will our heroes conquer the evil Yeerk empire and restore balance to the Force? Find out, when we review Animorphs MEGAMORPHS book #3, Elfangor’s Secret.

All that and more in the first ever “Megamorphs” Animorphs book, “The Andalite’s Gift.”
