No one ever thought it would come to this.

Jake, Rachel, Tobias, Cassite, Marco, and Ax know that even if they could have warned people in the beginning, so one would have believed their story. A story about an invasion of parasitic aliens. So, for all this time, Jake, the other Animorphs, and Ax have secretly fought a desperate battle. Secretly held the Yeerks at bay.

But those days are over.

It's come down to the final battle between the Yeerks and the Animorphs. And no one knows who will win, lose, or live. . . .

conjure up the true creepiness of a half-flea human. Human eyes, my own eyes, bulged from an insect face. I could see. Not well, confused, distorted, my visual cortex still more flea than human. I was still on the bridge of the Blade ship. I was actually crouched beneath an unoccupied control station. It was like hiding under a desk. Fortunately it was designed for a Hork-Bajir body, so there was some room. I saw the viewscreen light up. I saw Visser One's Andalite face. It was different. There

at the sun setting over the Pacific, and watch the birds below. I had seen red-tailed hawks at times. But there was no way to know. I spoke to Cassie every couple of months. She was seeing some guy . . . actually, a good guy. I had met him at one of Marco's parties. I couldn't exactly remember his name. He worked for the governor of California on environmental concerns. He and Cassie spent a lot of time working together with the Hork-Bajir in Yellowstone. It was a Friday, the last day of class

world's smartest mouse wiggled his nose at me. Oh, he knew I was watching, all right. He knew. He was brown, not especially plump or juicy-looking. He had a tail that I had shortened by an inch on a previous encounter. But since that one close call he had outsmarted me every time I'd gone after him. It was a lesson in humility. I was a red-tailed hawk with the mental powers of a human. I was being out-thought by a mouse. The question was, should I even try? I had a nice perch, all I had to do

said, but the fight had gone out of him. Tom was dead. Rachel was dead. How would I explain this to my parents? Silly to think of that right then. Silly and stupid. "Jake . . ." Toby urged. Cassie said softly. Toby absorbed that, then said, "Jara Hamee, my father, died bravely in battle here today." Still I couldn't say anything. How did I explain . . . Marco was still in gorilla morph. He said,

considerations. I don't want to say I'm ruthless, I'm not. But I have the ability. I can see the ruthless way clearly. I have to sort of add the morality back into the equation after the fact. I had no deep qualms about the seventeen thousand, any more than I had about our attack on the ground-based Yeerk pool. I knew why Jake had sent Rachel to Tom. I agreed with his thinking. But then, I wasn't in love with Rachel. I wasn't some lonely kid trapped in a hawk's body, half in one world, half in
