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.
