The thing I like most is how they finally get back to Tom being a controller. Most of the books are "oh the Yeerks are doing some strange thing? Ok let's go look at it, not have any idea what to do, then bumble around and achieve a pointless victory, and every time run into Visser Three."
This one brings back the personal connection as to why the Animorphs fight to defeat the Yeerks

SimplyCass wrote:I didn't think too highly of this book. However, at least it advanced the plot, raised the stakes, for Jake to protect his parents. It was of course not as good as #26, but compared to the largely superfluous next Jake book, #36, which if I can use Fan fiction parlance is a classic PWP (Plot What Plot) book.
Um, I've never seen PWP be used for something that wasn't, shall we say, intimately explicit. It's also been defined as 'Porn Without Plot', (on Archive Of Our Own, for example) so... yeah, I wouldn't call it PWP. :P
