Animorphs Book 26: The Attack by K. A. Applegate

The Animorphs are champions for the Ellimist in his epoch-spanning war with Crayak. Tensions rise due to Erek's pacifism; Jake experiences the nature of the Howlers. We learn about the Iskoort on a world far away and some assumptions are changed.

I like this book a lot. The setting is strange, the Iskoort are quirky and well-described. There's a lot of really cool worldbuilding in this place that it's almost impossible for the story to ever visit again, but I appreciate how much we get in this small slice. The description of the buildings is very evocative and whimsical, and the descriptions in general manage to convey confusion and hubbub without losing the narrative thread.

The introduction of and explanation of the Howlers is really interesting, in a good way. I have a lot of thoughts that will probably form a longer post later, I intend to compare and contrast them with something from another book, but that might not happen immediately.
