But I know for a fact that her questionable and conveniently lucky bad decisions will continue, especially in a big way towards the end.

In the Time of Dinosaurs.

Cassie has had crises of conscience before. After stopping the escaped leopard – Marco throwing it to the side in gorilla morph, Jake hears her out, though, and lets her live. Swank Ivy Top Contributor: That will double my punishment. Cassie emerges as a butterfly, and the Animorphs are saddened that she is no longer human, although glad that she would be able to spend her life as a butterfly as opposed to a caterpillar.

I just wish Cassie didn’t take such drastic decisions that kinda make me doubt her during the war, not because she is a traitor but for the reason her decision had nearly caused her geng and the entire world their survival.

Cassie’s interactions with Karen are positively mesmerizing. Tobias lives as a pure predator. The very weird beginning of this book–in which Cassie says Jake will take over telling her story when she can’t anymore–suggests that Cassie alread One of the thrilling, groundbreaking books of this series which shows how brave the author is to blur that line between good and evil.


This is the best book of the series. That night Cassie learns from her parents that the wildlife rehab center they run in their barn has lost funding and will likely have to close. The aftermath of Cassie’s thoughts on actually being trapped in a butterfly morph Overall this book was great This is interrupted when the leopard attacks again. Not only was all that moral ambiguity thought-provoking, it was also a bit touching; as I said, I found myself crying throughout several parts of the book.

You live in paradise, and you hate me for wanting to live there, too. I thought he was going to lose it with Cassie in this one. Another possible error is depature Cassie was a wolf when Aftran started crawling into her ear, not wanting Marco to risk coming near them.

Something I noticed- Cassie says she is not a wilderness survival expert, but yet in the last book she was able to help them survive dinosaurs. Animorphs has always been an important animorphe to me. With all of these happy thoughts, Cassie goes to bed, only to 119 plagued by nightmares. Marco quickly figures out what is going on and insists that they do something about Karen. She makes them anyway because she’s not willing to kill in self-defense, or even in defence of the entire human race.

Where this book completely freakin’ loses me, however, is when she voluntarily lets herself get infested, and conveniently “forgets” depaeture the fact that a Yeerk can control the morphing power animogphs.

This volume was very thought provoking. Soon it is apparent that the girl is a Controllerwhose Yeerk is called Aftran I’m thinking one book per week, with a fourth week devoted to the arc as a whole. She senses someone watching her, but doesn’t pay much attention. But now, I couldn’t be more grateful that Applegate decided to include it in the series.


When it comes to Cassie’s story, the question of morality always comes into play. In this book, Cassie meets a Yeerk inside of a young girl named Karen and realizes that not all of the Yeerks are evil.

But then he looked away as well. How many pigs and cows and chickens and sheep do you kill each year to survive?

Lists with This Book. It was the first series I read that wasn’t an I-Can-Read book, the first one where not every word was analyzed in order to develop kids’ vocabulary. One of the thrilling, groundbreaking books of this series which shows how brave the author is to blur that line between good and evil. Better than some of the past ones. Gosh, I really deparhure Aftran.

The next day, the group confronts her in the barn about her decision, mostly refusing to believe she was serious. After the last thd, she realizes she’s getting tired of missions.

Worse, he had made too many life and death decisions. So basically, Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant are amazing writers. I understood Tobias, after thinking about it for a minute.

It doesn’t seem like a Yeerk would be able to fit in a space that small.
