Episode 49: 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.

Episode 48: MEGAMORPHS 4: 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!

Episode 35: Megamorphs 3: 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.
