So in addition to the 50-something Animorphs books, there were a few companion books. Apparently this one was meant to be read after Animorphs #7, so I'm late in reading it.
Turns out that really doesn't matter much. We didn't learn anything much (other than what happened to one character's father's pickup truck). I hope this series picks up again soon, because I'm starting to consider dropping it and reading fix-it fanfic of it instead.
In The Andalite's Gift, the bad guys had a new weapon, an alien from Saturn, and used it to hunt the Animorphs. All these books are basically the same: The Animorphs have to acquire new animal morphs to continue fighting their battles.
The only thing different about this book was that there was no one POV character, instead the POV character changed by chapter. As one of my issues with this series is that the POV character keeps changing by book, that was not an improvement for me.
Also, I have no idea what a Megamorph is. Bigger animal morphs? More morphs? I finished the book and have no idea. Maybe just because all the kids were POV characters in the same book?
