Publisher's Summary

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.

loved it!

Tobias is my favorite character, and this narrator did an amazing job. Here's hoping the rest of the series continues!

Poor Tobias

Michael's a fine narrator as the boy in a hawk's body. The poor dude. I feel sorry for him. Glad these are coming in audio book form after many years of waiting.

can't fathom they let us read this as kids

A fantastic, depressing story. Been a fan for years, and still can't believe this series is aimed at kids. A Schoolastic series with murder, assassination, depression, attempted suicide and war crimes. "for kids"

Keep em coming!

Another engaging installment in the series that takes place from the most unique perspective on the team. Really good narration, and the writer does her homework on the animals, their behavior, and how they'd interact.

Tobias. A human. A hawk. An Animorph.

Yet another great trek into the world of Animorphs. I loved these books back when they came out, and I love them now even more. The narrator was great. The best so far. Only the sometimes awkward sound effects the narrators do kind of gets to me. Usually because they're, loud and kinda out of nowhere. but it does help with action and tension.
in any case, great book. Can't wait for book 4.

Excellent voice for Tobias

The narrator is amazing for this book, Tobias was my favorite character growing up. there's not a whole lot of plot in this novel, but the character development is brilliant.
