I posted a comment related to the Master’s kinden on your “Kiss my AZ” article, I assume that at the end the large being in the back at the end was one of the Master’s kinden?
I can’t help but feel utterly intrigued by kinden and the histories of your world, because when it comes to books I love the lore and histories of them.
I have another two questions relating to kinden: are there Centipede-kinden and why do Moth-kinden and the Master’s kinden live longer? Or are they to be addressed in another book?
Also, you should definitely write more about “the Bad Old Days”, but who am I to say, they’re your books.
Glen Spratt… Again.

In general the Inapt kinden live longer than the Apt (as a very loose rule), as part of the package that sees them generally physically less robust, and more at home in the dark.
Centipede-kinden are mentioned by Stenwold in book one as a myth. Whether or not they are the real deal is another Find Out In Print.
