The Ellimist-a god-like being who somehow is involved in some kind of war with an equally supreme being named Crayak. The Animorphs know little about him, only that he is on their side and he has powers no one can even imagine. Now, Ellimist tells his story to one of the dying Animorphs, at his or her request, without revealing who it is.
Great book that connects the story of the Animorphs in various places. A must-read if you're a fan of the Animorphs!
The sub-books in Animorphs are much better than the actual series. Especially, when it comes to The Ellimist Chronicles. Unlike the generally cheery, go-team atmosphere of many of the books, this one takes a very morbid tone. It starts out with a holocaust of the main character's race, and moves on to enslavement before delving into the beginnings of even grimmer philisophical questions, like the consequnce of knowledge and the unimportance of an individual. Not that I mean to say it's inappropriate for the target age-group: a lot of the dark stuff went right over my younger brother's head, but he still enjoyed it as a back-story, as it explained a lot of small things we had both wondered about the main series. But all in all, you won't be sad to return to the more fast-paced and up-beat story of our six crime-fighting teens either.
He is called the Ellimist. A being with the ability to alter space and time. A being with a power that will never be fully understood. He is the reason Elfangor came to Earth. He is the reason the Earth now has a fighting chance. And though his actions never seem quite right or wrong, you can be certain they are never, ever what anyone expects.
That is the beginning and the middle of the story. A story that needs to be told in order to understand what might happen to the future. The future of the Animorphs. The future of humanity. The future of Earth.
He is called the Ellimist. And this is his story...
