Book 23 of the Animorphs. This was not the all out fire fight that previous books have been. Did it have a skirmish? Yes. But mostly it was steeped in character development for Tobias. This was an excellent view of a teenage boy trying to figure out who he is. The author nailed that albeit all the other characters became cardboard cutouts while we really honed in on the one character. I did enjoy the book and the pacing was good. No unbelievable things that throw you out of the story, like other stories have had in this series. This is a good one to pick up if you are enjoying the series.
