I think that though the series's action was generally done well, the style was a bit weird at first. I could do without the onomatopoeia.gh astly wrote: I'm pretty hard-pressed to find anything about this book that I liked. Even the things that KA usually writes very well, like action and character-building, is handled horribly in this book. It's easily one of my least favorite books in the series.
Here's an example... that I made up.
"We inched closer to the cliff's edge.
A Taxxon had fallen from the sky and splattered on the ground below!
A drunk Howler had attempted (albeit failed) to make our ears bleed!
Rachel, in bear morph, had gotten hit by a truck! Her guts spilled all over the windshield!
The blade ship came closer to us, its engines humming.
Okay, maybe I outdid this a tiny bit. I'm not saying the action scenes were horrible. They were intense and all. I just still have trouble with all the sounds that are actually typed. Also, a couple times, I was so into an animorphs book that I muttered the bizarre sounds... and not the dialogue.
"Heh. No, mom. I don't have Tourette Syndrome."
In all honesty, I just wanted to type. This post was completely pointless. Good day.
