Digger, Volume Four

Digger, Volume Four by Ursula Vernon

Plots thicken. Spoilers for earlier volumes. . .

It takes a bit in the opening for the hyenas' purposes to come clear but -- to honor the dead, Digger -- or Little Mother of Earthquakes, as they put it -- must join the hyena tribe. She opts for adoption. And then comes the funeral which has complications.

Afterward, there is meeting someone who knows how Digger can get home, but won't tell her; guilt tripping; tea and sympathy and backstory; and a decision.
