Love the part at the beginning with the meerkats. Absolutely wonderful. And the rest of the chapter was equally good. Keep it up.

Wow! This chapter was so good I can't even express my feelings in a review

You know, I think its about time I reviewed this:
I found your series the other day - and I have to say that I have been enjoying it so far. I like the motivations and dynamics of Jau and Hassani, both of who are complicated characters beyond your normal "Black and White" Good Vs Evil. It makes me wonder if one or more of the four remaining Prides could be convinced to change sides, given the right circumstances. The Location of Killanmjaro (Spelling?) seems ideal, and I think it would be a fitting location for a "Last Battle" style, ending, but given the fact that this is the third of five, then it seems unlikely.
The Prophecy I love, but I have had trouble keeping track of which Kings are paired with Which Shaman, and where the other three Kings and their Shaman are in it. Probably my fault, but it might be nice to see it on your profile?
I like the implied relationship between Jau and Hassani - unusual for me, and it normally makes me feel a little uncomfortable (Its just so 'out there' in terms of my experience, I have difficulty relating to it) but in this case, it really works with the characters, without being distracting or detrimental.
The History is interesting.
The ONly issue I have is ddifficulty imagining Pumbaa as a Shaman - it just seems so out of character - but thats an adjustment issue for me.
I recommend that you avoid taking large periods of time away. The Longer you leave it, the harder it is to get back into it. I suggest pacing yourself. Plot out Each chapter of the remaining two books on a Word Doc, or Excell spreadsheet, and pace yourself to finish one chapter a week, normally, adjusting it depending on how busy you are. In my experience, it is a more effective way of managing time. My Five Part series is completely plotted - I know exactly how it will end as of this moment - and its far easier to manage my time because of it. I put away 2-3 hours every week, using "bochok" (But On Chair, Hands On Keyboard) and a huge mug of tea, and don't leave until I have the chapter finished. Then I take a short break, iron our the grammar/spelling and do a read through - then I upload.
Anyway - those are my thoughts.

So some arguing among the felines and hyena attacking. I don't blame you for wanting to take a break after finishing this story, though. You deserve it. But until then, please keep up the great work.

I'm glad our meerkats survived, but things can never be simple in your story. Keep up the great work.

Hasani really convinced his followers the other kings were Tyrants huh? Some leader he is to convince so many. So Kianu is afraid of Tamina huh? Hahaha. Beware the Mighty Tammy!

It's the Circle of Life. There's adorable meerkats running around. Then we get trouble striking. We have to know more soon. Good luck.

Very intriguing and entertaining. I'm rather happy with this chapter and eagerly await more once you get the chance. Good luck.

Congrats on your novel my friend! I loved how Kito and Kianu managed to get out of being punished so quickly. So Thimba hated the lioness who died and Kovu and Vitani. I guessed as much. I look forward to more
