Another or the Animorphs series. Overall, I am enjoying the story. The author has not hit stride and there are still some parts I assume but wish were better explained. In the series this book was better, but the author is so worried you might start in the middle that I wish I could skip the whole beginning of the book. Yes you could start with this book, not having read any of the other ones and be fine. I am hoping the author does greater character development, like happened in this book so if I did not read the others I would really be missing something. Overall still a high recommend for any kids of Power Ranger age.
