Animal Words (Darkeye Volume 2)
by Lydia West
Mhumhi and his children are captured and taken below the city by the mysterious bouda, a group of humans with strange ties to spotted hyenas. These humans are not helpless: in fact, they threaten to upset the power balance of the city. Mhumhi will have to make a choice- should he continue to make his human children a part of his dangerous life, or should he entrust them back to their own kind?
