My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.
More time travel. Another story that doesn't have to do with the main arc of the series. But I don't mind because this is interesting time travel and the story relates to our main characters' lives.
Just a little discussion under the cut.
In the message Ax says he can't survive much longer under the sea, but in this book he says he could live under the sea for the rest of his life... timeline change? A thought he has before he sends out that message in The Message. Maybe he thought he could survive forever until he realizes the Yeerks have found him? I'm not sure. This is the thing I don't like about time travel.
Also how does Odret fit into the main series? Was there anything with him? Was he a timeline change for this book? I couldn't think too much about any of the new elements introduced in the book because everything got complicated pretty quickly.
