The unforgettable story of the fierce Hork-Bajir wars in a time before the Animorphs... 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, the 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.
