5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Wonderful, Oct. 21 2000
Frankly, I'm surprised at some of the reviews of this book. It looks as if some people just want to attack this poor man. This book is great! The aliens are very original, and their physical appearances differ more from humans than a couple of forehead wrinkles(a la Star Trek). Also, their personalities are different enough from humans that you can tell they are aliens, but not so different that you can't identify with them. The book is well written, and the plot is very good. It has multiple twists and turns that leads to a surprising ending. Trust me, if you see this book and like good science fiction, BUY IT! You're doing yourself a favor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ah, beautiful Senna, Sept. 25 2000
A gal after my own heart. She has the right idea, but clearly knows nothing of military tactics and so her plan will fail.
In this book, we see the Everworld version of Egypt. I love what Applegate did with the Egypt gods, it has almost an Anne Rice quality to it. We also see how another "real-worlder" crosses the bridge into Everworld.
Because Senna told the story this time around, I think this is the best one so far. I personally enjoyed the break from alcoholic Chris, weakling David, and holier-than-thou April.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, yet patchy, Sept. 23 2000
The arrogant Andalites are contacted, but basically refuse to believe our friends the Animorphs. Unsurprisingly, Visser Three jumped up to Visser One in this story(though he doesn't play an active part). As it will be somewhat akward to begin calling Visser Three Visser One; the series seems to be reaching its climax with the threat of a World War Three.
My only problem with this book is that a large amount of action was crammed into the last half of the book and it seems a little clumsy to me.
I also saw in this novel that Ax is weaker than I thought. He passes up the chance to strike a devestating blow to the Yeerks for reasons of "morality". But then I must remind… Read more
