When Tobias and his friends were given the power to morph, they were also given an important warning: Never stay in a morph for more than two hours. But Tobias broke the time limit, and now he's trapped in the body of a hawk -- forever.
When he discovers an important Yeerk secret, Tobias knows he has to do everything in his power to destroy it. But to do so, he'll have to contend with a part of himself that's wrestling for control. A part that isn't human.
When I found out that this book had arrived, I was jumping with joy! While I was struggling to do up the reviews for some other books, I was afraid that this book was going to be sent away, and I really didn't want that to happen, because after reading the preview of this in book 2, I was anxiously waiting for this one to arrive!
The cover was great, it took me a bit to try and get a full view of the lenticular artwork, and I had to tilt the book almost flat to get a full view of the start of the morph. The story flowed well, it was almost entirely different from the other books, but it still didn't lose the high level of action and excitement as the others. I was a little worried at some points; my heart rate actually rose!
I was most frightened when the Animorphs almost got trapped in their animal forms, my heart was beating against my chest like it was trying the break out, but it was a good thing that the bad part died away. I'm very tempted to read this book again sometime, I still enjoyed it even after all the sad and frightening parts, and those bits were the only parts I disliked a little.
I would say that this book is okay for people 8-18, there were hardly any disgusting bits, so some younger kids wouldn't nearly throw up if they read this book. This is certainly a great book for kids to read on days when they want to relax, because I nearly lost track of the world around me while I had my nose buried in the pages. Enjoy!
