It all started with the dreams. But Cassie didn’t pay much attention to them. She and her friends have been having nightmares ever since they acquired the power to morph. But when Cassie discovers that Tobias has been having dreams too — the exact same dreams — about the ocean, and a voice that’s calling to them for help, she decides it’s time to start listening. Now she and the others have to figure out if the dreams are a message, or a trap.
Marco never wanted to be an Animorph. He didn’t want the ability to change into any animal he touches. And he certainly didn’t want to be one of a handful of kids that are the planet’s only defense against a secret alien army. His friends know why he feels the way he does. He’s worried about his dad — the only family Marco has left. If anything happens to him, his father will be alone.
But something big is about to change for Marco. Something that could finally give him a reason to fight.
Rachel isn’t the kind of girl who backs away from a fight. When her dad asks her to move across the country with him, it hurts, but Rachel won’t desert her friends in their fight to save the world.
But then the Animorphs are contacted by a very old, very powerful alien being that knows about their struggle. He’s called the Ellimist, and he presents them with a choice: They can abandon the planet with their families and be taken to safety, or they an stay to fight the Yeerks — and lose.
