The best thing about this book (and the first and third in the series) is the blending of themes familiar to humans (curiosity, courage, fear, friendship, rivalry) with a fictional world and characters who are not humans. The first element is engaging and relatable, the second fascinating. As Ki'shto'ba and its Companions continue their journey, they encounter Sshi (termite people) communities whose cultures, languages, and diets are different from theirs. The details of these differences and the way the themes play out within the group of by now familiar characters is interesting, entertaining, and thrilling. This is a first-rate read.

If, like me, you have a fondness for ancient Greek Mythology, Science Fiction stories from the 'Aliens' perspective and Fantasy (in this case, non- magical), I can wholeheartedly recommend this series (and the preceding two volume introduction 'Termite Queen' series).
Look out for great 'Intelligent Termite' parallels to the Hydra, Pearseus & Medusa and even a nod to a Termite version Beowulf.
