The Animorphs' dangerous fight for the planet continues in K. A. Applegate's riveting bestselling series!

It was bad when Jake found out his brother was one of them. A Human-Controller. A slave. But that was nothing compared to this.

When the Animorphs decide to visit the Yeerks' new base, it seems simple. But then they get caught and Jake falls-just for a moment-into the Yeerk pool.

Now they're out, and his friends can't see it. To them he's just like normal. But Jake is screaming for help. His worst fear has finally come true. He's become the enemy.

K. A. Applegate is the author of the bestselling Animorphs series, as well as the Remnants and Everworld series, Home of the Brave, and the Roscoe Riley Rules series. She lives in Irvine, California.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Animorphs This is my childhood in book form

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not the best of the series Jake's Review: This book is the most boring of the series so far, because there wasn't any exciting stuff in it. They did way to much talking and not enough fighting. I would have changed the story so when a Morph thought talked to a human the human could actually thought talk back to the morph. My favorite character is Ax because he is like the last living Andalite and that is pretty cool. I kinda feel sad for Marco because he doesn't have a Mom because she died (Mom's note: What is this a Disney movie where we have to kill off the mom). I don't like Jake's brother Tom because he threw food at Jake and generally he's being controlled by an alien slug in his brain which is sorta scary. Kids who like aliens and fighting will like this book, even though the other books are better because there is more fighting in them. I still want to read the rest of the series and hopefully the next one will have more butt kicking of the aliens and less talking. Jake's Rating: 6/10 Mom's Review: Jake totally loves this series and I can definitely see the appeal in them. Honestly at my age I would have have adored these too. I won't lie it was a bit of a struggle to get through it as I am obviously way too old to be reading these. The series probably could have ended already as this installment really goes nowhere. It was interesting to see the thought process' of the Yerks, but other than that it really is the same old story, very formulaic . But enough about my thoughts, the kids will dig this as the kids are saving the day without the help of bumbling adults. Good message about working together and friendship also done in a non shmalzy way which kids will appreciate -- they hate it when you force feed them the moral crap. Also giggled when they used the phrase "resistance is futile" - yes I am that much of a nerd. Also for those who read these when they first came out, they have updated many of the pop culture and technology references to be a little more modern. Mom's Rating: 6/10

Read from the Book

From Animorphs #6: The CaptureI was still behind the whirlpool, out of sight. I was trying to focus on morphing into tiger form for a fight.But then, two more men, dressed in uniform as guards, came plowing into the room. The first one leveled a gun."Ax!" I shouted. "A gun!"Ax's tail flashed."Aaaargghh!" the Controller screamed.The hand that had been holding the gun was no longer attached to the man's arm."Get back up to the pool area! Andalites!" the second guard screamed into a walkie-talkie. Then he drew his gun.BLAM! BLAM!They told me later there was a third shot. But I didn't hear it.A sledgehammer blow struck the side of my head. A ricochet. For a brief second I clung to consciousness. But then, I swooned. I fell.Facedown in the whirlpool.Facedown in the bubbling, boiling mass of dying Yeerks.
