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.

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.

Great narrator for a tough book!

I adore this series, but books #2 and #3 are not the strongest books in the start. They have really strong parts to them, but that is entirely in the character development and not the plot. The plot of this one is weak, but WOW the character development. And the narrator nails it.

Really, really looking forward to #13.

I hope they record the entire series

I hope they record the entire series! Tobias's reader is my only negative in the audible productions. He takes the awkward shy lonely introverted character a tiny bit too far. I had a hard time not feeling like his voice was too monotone.
It was a great book otherwise.

Emohawk lives

Tobias's narration can get pretty extreme but I think it's most understandably so here, even as it's at its most extreme. I wish he and Ax had been as regular in the rotation of books as the other kids.

Michael Crouch might be my favorite narrator so far. Oh, man, what if he voiced the Andalite Chronicles? If it was one of the established narrators it'd have to be either him or Ax's.
