Dak Hamee is a unique Hork-Bajir. His people call him a seer. He learns more quickly and completely than the rest of his docile race. Hork-Bajir like him are born once a generation.

Aldrea is a young Andalite. Daughter of the notorious Prince Seerow. It is only after she and her family are sent to the Hork-Bajir home world that she begins to fight the Yeerks -- and, with Dak's help, ultimately discovers their hideous plan.

Esplin 9466 is the Yeerk that will become the feared Visser Three. He has set out to defeat the Hork-Bajir, and begin the building of the Yeerk Empire.

This story chronicles the fierce Hork-Bajir wars in a time before the Animorphs.

This book is so great! I have been reading Animorphs books since I was a little kid, and this is the best by far (even thought the others are still awesome). It tells the story the story of the Hork-Bajir and the Andelites about 40 (earth) years back, and their battle with the yeerks. It has some-what of a suprise ending.

The book explores the darker, ruthless side of the supposed 'good guys', the Andalites, and the Hork-Bajirs not as the fearsome warriors as we know them, but the peace-loving race they were before the invasion. The tale revolves round Aldrea, daughter of the disgraced Prince Seerow, a female Andalite who struggles to prove her worth by commanding the rebel forces against the Yeerks, and the Hork Bajir she loved, Dak Hamee, the 'seer' that was born to lead his people. Most stunning of all was the P.O.Vs from Esplin 9466, the Yeerk we know so well as Visser 3, and his hunger to be at the top, his envy of the Andalites for their superiority, and his desire of wanting to be like them. Highly entertaining action scenes and fantastic character developement, coupled with the relationships of the three characters and Aldrea's dramatic betrayal of her own kind, it's very, very worth your time and money.

This book beats all the other animorph books because it goes back farther then when Elfangor dies. It tells almost the whole story of how the yeerks took over most of the universe.

Supposedly a young adults science fiction novel... I'm 50 and I enjoyed it! Well written, nice story, not too many leaps-of-faith. I'll be reading the rest of the series as I can get hold of them...

I love how this book tells of Yeerk betrayal of the Andalites. Hundreds of Gedds massacred Anadalites soldiers on their planet, stole several fighters and 2 transports, loaded the transports with about a quarter of a million Yeerks and then escaped into Z-Space. They wandered for some time. Many Yeerks were born aboard the transports. Including Espin 9466. This was long before Esplin became the monster the Animorphs would face. In the beginning he was a simple Yeerk, who knew nothing but the Yeerk Pool. Then came his Training. He was given 15 minutes in a Gedd. For 15 minutes he had arms, hands, legs and Eyes. Then he had to return to the Pool. In that brief time the Yeerk Pool went from being his entire Universe, to being both insignificant from outside, and a filthy trap from within. Many Yeerks found the experience of taking a host to be revolting and horrifying, not Esplin. He vowed he'd do anything, pay any price to have eyes again. He found his calling, he studies the Andalites. He knew eventually his people would face the Andalites, and he'd be needed. His effort payed off. He became one of the first Hork Bajir Controllers. As the Yeerks empire grew on the Hork Bajir homeworld, the Vissers and Sub-Vissers were born. Esplin's ambition grew rapidly. Having a host wan't enough anymore. He wanted rank, he wanted power. The distinction between Gedd and Hork Bajir controllers grew rapidly. From that Esplin realized what he truly wanted. The Yeerk that could hold an Andalite host would be unique. Such a Yeerk would be a Visser at the least, perhaps even reach the Council of 13. Also enjoyed getting into the minds of Aldrea and Dak Hamee. Those 2 lead the Hork Bajir resistance. They hurt the Yeerks, and slowed them down. They bought the rest of universe time. Generations later their Grandson, Jar Hamee, and Great-Grand Daughter, Toby Hamee, would fight beside the Animorphs. They'd help the Animorphs finish what Aldrea and Dak began.

I absolutely love this book. The best of the series, with the Andalite Chronicles coming in a close second. I grew up on this series and this is a book I have reread multiple times and still find inspiring and wonderful. The conflict is great, the setting is awesome, and there's never a dull moment. The ending was just.... I'd recommend this to anyone!

This was definitly a good book especially since it tell you the background of when the morphing tehc was invented and when the hor-bajir were still free and... not smart.

This book is an interesting look into the andelite and hork-bajir species, that is if you follow the other Animorph books.I like how detailed the descriptions are and how different it is from human kind. Some parts are a little hoky, but thats okay. This is a good book to read if you have read at least the first Animorphs book.

I say this is a REALLY great book mainly because of the multipal points of veiw. This book shows that during a conflict, how both sides have a good reason for doing what their doing. I recomend this book to not just Animorph fans, but to all readers.

The Hork-Bajir Chronicles by K.A. Applegate is an interesting fiction novel. Even though it was interesting book my opinion is bad. I did not like the way it started out stupid because it starts with a war randomly. The setting of this novel is on the planet Hork-Bajir.
One major conflict in this story is when the andalites go to the planet Hork-bajir and take over and keep a watch on every thing that is going on in and on the planet. Three major plot details are during won of the war the ruthless andalites warriors come and take over the planet hork-bajir. The author¿s style was really weird and a lot of alien names that I did not get. I recommend this book to people who like aliens and people who have read this book before.
