Now, with all the message cracking on Morphz, there’s some GREAT summary info this week, so read on… &&&&&&&&& AW FORUM &&&&&&&&& Last week's forum: What title would you give the final Megamorphs book (#5), why? “I'd say that Megamorphs #5 would be titled "End of Invasion" because, well, it sounds cool. Plus, if it is the ending, the title would make sense. Anyway, that's all I could think of. I'm sure somebody else has a much more creative answer than me. Oh well!” - Andrew “Really, i dunno. I have no idea. *looks depressed* I have an obscure idea for the title of 54 though! *brightens* How bout -the envelope please- *drumroll* Ok, ok "The Beginning". Ain't it cool? It could mean so many things. the beginning of the end of the war. the beginning of life after war. So many possiblities. So little room to type. i think I'll just leave the options up to you!” - Reana “The title to MM#5 should be the Final Battle. I don't know if the series ends in a MMM, but it should be the Final Battle! It tells that in the book it might be the battle and the Animorphs win it all!” - Krystal Was Krystal reading my mind? For a long while I thought the title of Meagmorphs #5 could be The Final Battle! We’ll see what the real, actual title for the book is soon enough! The book could come out May 2001. - Guillermo This week's forum question is: what places do you think the Animorphs should go that they haven’t already been to (like in #44)? %%%%%%% AW POLL %%%%%%% Last week's poll question was: if Jake had died, who would be the Animorphs leader then? Nice question, eh? Marco 2 Tobias 4 Cassie 0 Rachel 2 Ax 1 None of them 2 Mertil the Andalite 1 This week's poll question is: Have you seen (or read) an Animorph book from another country? Please send in your poll response to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with "poll" as the subject. Thanks! ====== NEWS ====== - Here’s the exclusive #48 The Return summary: David is back and he wants revenge. With the aid of his new evil compatriots, he is able to capture Cassie and Rachel. In order to escape, Rachel will have to confront an enemy much darker than David ever was. She will have to take on Crayak himself. Cool! - Another summary: BarnesandNoble.com gave us the official summary of #49 The Diversion this week! The Yeerks are finally starting to realize that the "Andalite bandits" are probably not aliens at all. They're finally starting to realize that maybe they've been dealing with humans all along. And no one—especially the newly appointed Visser One—is happy with this knowledge. Not happy at all. When Tobias, the other Animorphs, and Ax realize that the Yeerks are about to find them, it's by accident. But that doesn't make the discovery any less serious. Because in a war, one side wins. And one side loses. The book comes out in December. - For anyone who did not get the demo to the Animorphs PC game that came with #45 (like me) , you can download it on the net here!: http://www.pcgameworld.com/gamedemos/a/animorphs/index.htm - The Official Site updated this past week with the #47 information! Here’s the summary: The Animorphs and Ax have to make the most important decision they've ever had to make: Do they continue to fight the Yeerks in secret, or is it time to let everyone know there is a resistance? That the Animorphs exist. And that Earth does stand a small chance against the invasion. Jake knows that either choice is a major one. Not one that some kid should be responsible for. But he's getting tired of the pressure. So, even though he realizes that other Animorphs need him to be strong, he doesn't feel that way. In fact, he feels just the opposite. And Jake knows if he starts to lose it the Animorphs are done... And the sample chapter can be read here: http://www.scholastic.com/animorphs/sample47.htm It’s chapter 8 and Jeff says the chapter does not spoil anything. And also the bigger cover: http://www.scholastic.com/animorphs/download/bk47.jpg Also updated, was the Sneak Preview of the site. Funny though, they don’t have a preview for #48, so we don’t know the official summary yet. But they did updated with a cool Ellimist Chronicles preview! The site says The Ellimist Chronicles will come out this November (yey, in time for my birthday!). Here’s the cover preview, http://www.scholastic.com/animorphs/images/ellimist1.jpg - Oops! It now looks like there will NOT be a display for #47 The Resistance in bookstores when the book is released.. - Everworld cover news thanks to Andrew: “David Mattingly told me that there are going to be mermaids and mermen on the inside cover of #10! Isn't that cool! Although he couldn't "directly" tell me what #11's cover's gonna look like, he told me to keep "a single eye out for it", which probably means some sort of cyclops or leprachaun eye thingy.” - Here’s a speculation on the #48 cover from Reana: “While reading your description of 48's cover, something hit me. I saw the cover of it on Morphz A bit ago, and i had no clue, but now... I think you may have struck close. What if Rachel is mixing Hork Bajir and Rachel DNA, you know, like Ax did for his human morph. didn't KA say that that wold turn back up? Maybe not, maybe thats just my wishful thiking, but then again, doesn't she usally inculde things that turn back up, tieing in to the overc all polt? A spectulation, yes, but good one, don't you think?” - #46 The Deception should be coming out in bookstores pretty soon. But when I get it, there will be a problem. See, I’m still reading Goblet of Fire and it may take me a while to finish it. So I can’t read #46 until I finish Goblet. +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ ON THE BOOK CHARTS +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ #45 The Revelation is going up, up, up!
