Abby and Lys have escaped from the Germans and come on the rest of the group. Unfortunately they then find themselves surrounded by Coripies and giant ants. As this goes on Dian’s bonds are cut free by the Weiroo so she can rescue See-Ta. The Weiroo flies Dian to the little island so she can jump in and pull out See-Ta. Of course they both turn on the Weiroo and chop his head off. They then escape and find the group battling the Coripies and giant ants. Ahm and his tribe join the fight and save Bowen and company. They go to where the invasion army is coming out of the ground. Just then Tanar comes from the opening on a giant ant eater. Bowen notices the U-33 and shoots at it. Von Schoenvorts fires the deck gun which causes an avalanche that seals the entrance. Dian and Tanar escape in time to enter and go back to Pellucidar.

The final crossover story was an enjoyable and exciting story. There was almost nonstop action. Plenty of beautiful kickass women. It also established another Burrough’s world that American Mythology will add to their line. I look forward to more adventures in Caspak, Pellucidar and beyond.

The head Weiroo is taunting Dian. Dian says she is almost sorry for the Weiroo because the Mahars plan to enslave them. Meanwhile See-Ta meets Ahm and the two hear the sounds of battle. They go to a Band-lu village that is being overrun by the Coripies and giant ants of the Mahar army. She tries to help but is captured. Now a fight ensues between the head Weiroo and Mahar over See-Ta. The Mahar beats the Weiroo’s ass and now the Weiroo thinks that Dian may have a point.

Lys and Abby are out getting water when they run into men from the U-33. Luckily the giant ants come and distract them long enough to escape. The U-33’s deck gun takes care of the ants. At a bay the Mahar are going to enact their feast by taking control of See-Ta’s mind and making her walk into the water. Unfortunately for the Mahar a saurion eats the Mahar. Dian promises to aid the Weiroo in destroying the Mahars if he will release her from her bonds. The Weiroo demands that Dian help him get See-Ta for himself.

So a lot is going on in the land of Caspak. Mahars with the albino Coripies and giant ants are rampaging through the land. The Weiroo have discovered they are not equal allies but servants. Throw in the Germans and their advanced weapons and you have a great set up for a free for all. I do enjoy seeing all these Burrough’s creations together and look forward to the conclusion.

Abby and her companions are following the U-33 to make sure Von Schoenvorts does not sneak up on them. Suddenly giant ants break through the ground around them. Fortunately See-Ta comes to save them. After single-handedly killing one she leads the group back to Bowen and Lys. Here Abby admits that she is their great-great-great granddaughter from the future. Meanwhile the giant ants are being lead by some albino man creatures who are in turn lead by the Mahars. Dian the Beautiful is captive of the Mahars and used to communicate with the Weiroo. They start by attacking a Kro-lu village.

So a crossover between two of Burrough’s worlds. American Mythology has plans to link four of the worlds and Caspak is to be the nexus with its unique position outside time and space. That’s a cool idea. So for this we get such favorites as the Mahars and Weiroo. Also the giant ants and albino creatures are from a Pellucidar novel. So nice to finally see some of Burrough’s other creations getting some love. Will also be interesting to see how Abby’s presence affects the timeline.
