Dak Hamee, born into the Hork-Bajir tribe, is something special from the start. "Strange," says his mother. "A seer," says the Old One, Tila Fashat. "A seer is one who is born to show a new way. Many, many seasons pass, then our father, the Deep, and our mother, the Sky, say, 'Send a seer to the people. The people have need.' And so one is born who is different." When strange and different Dak meets Aldrea, the clever Andalite daughter of Prince Seerow, they learn together of the dangerous plot of the Yeerks, and of Esplin 9466, who will stop at nothing to build his empire. Learn more about Prince Seerow's Kindness, find out how Andalites kiss, and plumb the mysteries of the Deep in this suspense-filled story of good, evil, and interspecies love. (Ages 9 to 12)From the Publisher:
A compelling and poignant special title, The Hork-Bajir Chronicles is the story of the battle that nearly destroys an entire race, and eventually sends one Andalite war prince to crash land on Earth where he would give five kids the power to morph--the beginning of the Animorphs story.
Aldrea, a young Andalite, and her family are sent to the world of the Hork-Bajir, a physically overpowering species with razor-sharp blades at their ankles, knees, wrists and elbows. Although the Hork-Bajir look incredibly fierce, they are a gentle and docile group whose blades are only used to strip bark from trees. Once on the Hork-Bajir home world, Aldrea meets Dak Hamee, a unique Hork-Bajir who learns more quickly and completely than the rest of his race. After her family is killed, Aldrea realizes that the Yeerks have arrived, and the fierce Hork-Bajir wars begin.
Aldrea and Dak Hamee lead the fight against the Yeerks together and are eventually joined by Andalite forces. But after discovering that the Andalites are planning to annihilate the Hork-Bajir, Aldrea and Dak Hamee realize that the two of them are fighting alone. (Ages 9 to 12)
