With them having the name of the final book, I assume that's where it's going. They were mentioned at the end of book seven with Che in the Commonweal, and Seda went to one of the seals in book eight. Spoiler Yes, that is referring (although a bit misleadingly) to the kinden who play a big role in the final story arc. 29 minutes ago, Rhom said: I do assume that those will be the kinden in the final book based on the title, but no there's a line near the end of The Scarab Path as Che is escaping the Masters who have been pretty enigmatic where it says: Hide contents "Che would remember for ever the sight of them as she glanced back one last time: beautiful by an alien aesthetic, huge and commanding, and gleaming in that bluish light. The immortal Slug-kinden, the Masters of Kanaphes." Prior to that, I don't recall their kinden being mentioned. But the slime that was mentioned on the walls of the great pyramid made sense as well as their bloated appearance once that line was revealed. But I do think they were the first kinden not related to an insect. Then in Sea Watch there are obviously several that are not related to insects. I think they're the first non-arthropods, I think before that the only non-insect kinden we see are the spiders and scorpions, although others may be mentioned as something the moths have encountered in the past.
