One of the things I liked best about reading this book was gradually becoming aware of the parallels between this epic tale of termite adventurers and similar tales and legends from human culture. To offer specifics would be to spoil the effect for future readers, so I'll say no more. This slice of the greater story features a dark descent followed by an episode of clever mischief. Two new characters add their distinct personalities to the mix as the group figures out how to deal with a number of puzzles and challenges. As in the previous books, prophecies are fulfilled but succeeded by fresh prognostications that keep the questing Companions (and the reader) wondering about the unknown events yet to come.

What can I say without my enthusiasm inadvertently giving away the juicy bits (and there are lots of them).
Za’dut (surnamed 'The Tricky Lizard') does some more inventing - and excells itself!
Ki’shto’ba literally goes into Termite Hades and faces Monsters, several deceased enemies and the King of Hades.
Di’fa’kro’mi keeps his audiences, including the reader, enthralled with his tales.
New Companions are found.
I am totally smitten by the world and characters created by Lorinda J Taylor.
In my opinion, this is a epic that Homer (and other like storytellers) would thoroughly approve of and enjoy.
