In an hour or so, once I was out of sight of land, I would lower my sails and wait for a Bug fighter to come lift me off the deck. The engine backwash of the Bug fighter would capsize the boat. Or I might put the Taxxon pilot to the test and see if he could ram the low-slung boat. That would puzzle the humans.
Either way, my body would never be found....
My time of lying low was over.... I would spearhead the invasion of Earth. I would take charge of our greatest conquest. I would stand alone atop the Yeerk military hierarchy.
I was to become Visser One.
Her human name is Eva. There was a time when she had a loving husband and a son, Marco. When she had a wonderful career. But that was before she was infested by Edriss 562. Before the invasion of Earth. Now, Edriss 562 lives in Eva's head and controls her every movement. And through Eva, Edriss has become the highest-ranking general in the Yeerk empire, surpassing even her arch rival, Visser Three. She is Visser One.
But, it has become known that Visser One's tactics for attaining her current position were less than acceptable--even to the Yeerks. Now she is on trial for treason. If she's found innocent she'll continue to rule. But if she's found guilty, she'll lose her life--and possibly the life of her host, Eva. Which will mean that Marco will never, ever see his mother again.... K.A. Applegate has dared to journey to the dark side with this haunting glimpse into the hearts and minds of a race determined to survive and conquer--at any cost.
K.A. Applegate is the author of over 100 books for middle-grade readers and young adults including the best-selling Animorphs and Everworld series. Ms. Applegate was born in Michigan and has lived in many regions of the United States, including Texas, Florida, California, and Minnesota. She now lives in Chicago, where she divides her time between writing, reading, and vegging out in front of the tube.
What motivated Ms. Applegate to write Visser? "In writing Visser I wanted to address one of the big questions fans regularly pose: How did it all start? I wanted to suggest the possibility that the Yeerk evil could only flourish when it met with human weakness. But I also wanted to suggest the possibility that human strengths--simple human good, in this case a mother's love--could weaken evil. (Ages 9 to 12)
