Nate and Jenna finally have a heart-to-heart about their relationship, Starlee ponders a future away from Blackfossil, and the tables turn on Captain Jim and Nate as they become the hunted.

Continuing the story and concluding this volume, it’s Voracious: Feeding Time with issues two through five.

After previously mentioned the heart-to-heart, Starlee and Jenna end up meeting and seem to get along. In the parallel universe, Jim and Nate are in the middle of hunting where the dinosaur detectives catch them...

Hero Cats of Skyworld #16
