Book Review: Animorphs #34,The Prophecy
Happy Friday Everyone,
We made it! Give yourself a big pat on the back, you deserve it!
I’m feeling a lot better about things right now, as certain developments may be coming to fruition that I’ve been waiting for for quite some time. But anyways, back to the post.
Last night I finished reading Animorphs #34 by KA Applegate.
I vaguely recalled this story based on the blurb, and I was excited to find out what happened, so I took a deep dive into this book.
Cassie’s losing her mind. But she’s gaining the mind of another. Aldrea — daughter of Seerow, Andalite Prince. Aldrea’s persona, her memory, and a valuable bit of information now belong to Cassie.
I gave this novel four stars!
This time around, we are in Cassie’s POV, and like usual I was cautiously optimistic that this book wouldn’t disappoint like some of Cassie’s other books in the series. Luckily, my faith was well placed.
After receiving an invitation to come see the free Hork-Bajir in their secluded valley, the Animorphs are shocked when they are greeted by the last of the Arn, the creators of the Hork-Bajir.
He wants to help arm the Hork-Bajir in both number and weaponry, but in return he requires someone in the group’s mind to be taken over by Aldrea, daughter of Seerow so they can retrieve her weapons cache on the Hork-Bajir home world.
Suddenly, Cassie finds herself sharing her mind and actions with Aldrea herself, but can they find the weapons before the Yeerks do? Can they get home in one piece?
This book was a lot of scifi fun.
I was happy with Cassie’s POV this time around. As usual, she questions the ethics of their actions, this time in a crazy situation with her mind being partially occupied by Aldrea. Aldrea and her had a great yin-yang effect going on. Where Aldrea was strategic and ruthless, Cassie was thoughtful and cautious. It was really enjoyable. We also got to see a bit more from her in other ways, but I’m not going to spoil that for you.
The plot was a winner from the get go. I love our friendly free Hork-Bajir, and I was rooting for the mission to finally go right when so many times they end in a stalemate or failure. I won’t tell you the results, but this adventure was very entertaining and full of action. I love it when our Animorphs journeys take us to outer space.
If I had to pick at anything, small sections of the action could get a little jumbled in the mix as far as descriptions go, but other than that I can’t really complain too much.
In the end, this was a great continuation of the Animorphs series, and I’m super excited to read the next one!
That’s a Wrap!
Thanks for stopping by, and happy reading!
