Animal Rage was the first Smallville novel that I read because they are hard to come by in Australia. I am a huge fan of the tv show, and so I was really excited when I found out there were novels, and so I ordered them fast from the US. The first thing I noticed when I opened the Little Brown series of books, was that it wasn't the kinda book i expected. The size of the book is tiny, there are only 160 pages and the writing is rather big, compared to the Aspect TV Tie - In Smallville Novels, which have small writing and 240 pages. The story is much briefer than the other series, and this book is about a girl called Heather Fox, who is against cruel actions against Animals. Heather also has a secret power that allows her to touch an animal and she instantly changes into the animal she touches. Meanwhile, Clark has taken Whitney's spot in the public speaking contest along Lana, at a farming fair, where there are sales of animal fur. Clark realises after time that Heather is able to change into animals, after a late night attack on his farm. He must protect Lana and the rest of Smallville, as Heather's intention is to pay back the people for what they have done to animals. Overall I enjoyed the book, but I think it focussed too much on Heather, and her thoughts, and there wasn't a lot about Clark, Lana, Pete. When there was though there was some comic dialouge that I really enjoyed reading. Once again like the rest of the Smallville novels, they are interesting to read, if you are a Smallville fan you'll love them, and if your not then you probably won't find them as good. Even as a Smallville fan, I still enjoy the TV much more, but I still recommend this book for any young Smallville fan. For older teenage Smallville fans, i'd recommend the Aspect Tv Tie In Smallville Novels (Strange Visitors, Dragon, Hauntings & WhoDunnit), instead, but these are still great fun to read.
When an extreme animal rights activist named Heather Fox begins blowing up at people whenever her thoughts on animal rights are thought of as strange, Clark realizes that there may be something really wrong with his classmate. And whensomeone begins aiming a strange series of attacks at stores that sell fur or leather, and farmers who own livestock, Clark thinks that Heather could possibly be behind it. But not human-Heather. Animal-Heather. As he thinks that she could be a shape-shifter. And now, with the Smallville county fair just a few days away, Clark is sure that Heather will probably be planning a new attack, and it's up to Clark to protect all of the fair-goers. As someone who has always been interested in both animal rights and shapeshifting, I found this book to be an extremely interesting and exciting joy ride. Heather is an intriguing, if not a little overzealous about her cause, character. And Chloe is at her best in this great addition to the SMALLVILLE series. A must-have. Erika Sorocco

after reading "whodunit", i thought that the smallville novels were on the way up finally. this book was rather dull and lifeless and really not worth buying. it's main focus is a teenage girl named heather fox who is an animal right extremist. she discovers that if she touches an animal she can transform into that animal and decides to seek revenge on any human who has been cruel to animals. this is rather extreme considering that this setting is in rural kansas and the woman seems like she needs to keep her opinions to herself. if you have read some of the other smallville novels, the ending is way too predictable. the tv show is beautiful but most of the novels are pathetic at best.
