Animorphs Book 21: The Threat by K. A. Applegate

The Threat is a solid book 2 of the David trilogy. Jake is trying to be a good leader while handling the newest member during a difficult and high-stakes mission. This also has one of the scariest almost-nothlit moments so far.

This trilogy in the middle of the main series used to be extremely stressful for me to read (and it's still pretty stressful). David shakes up the usual dynamic, pokes a lot of buttons... and then gets very, very dark. His moral code doesn't fit well with the others, but in a dark way. I was going to compare him to Rachel, but it's not a good fit right now, and a later book will do that for me in a spectacular fashion.

The ending, oh goodness, the ending is rough.
