Book One of The Meer- The Marked: Blaze
“Should The Marked live their bloodlines will sire The Golden One.” Galaxy raised his voice to be heard over the crackling hiss of the starfire.
Ripple’s fur prickled. “What do you mean should they live?”
“That’s why we need you.” Patch hurried to explain, leaping to his paws again. “We need help protecting them and we know that you don’t agree with Nova. That you aren’t trying to stop the prophecy from happening.”
“Patch, you didn’t answer my question.” Ripple said as the flames began to die down, their glow and heat dispersing. “Why do they need protection?”
Galaxy turned, his grave expression hooking its icy claws into Ripple. A shiver flowed down her spine and a sudden dread tingled on her tongue. She swallowed the bitter taste of it.
“We need your help protecting them,” Galaxy replied with words that piled in Ripple’s heart like boulders, “because they are destined to die.”
~~ The Meer- The Marked Book One: Blaze, Prologue
Fiery and Slate couldn’t be more different. Fiery is born the son of the dominant male and female in the small family of meerkats known as the Blazes. Slate is born an outcast among the large meerkat family called the Zeros, being the daughter of a subordinate female. Fiery is dedicated and determined, while Slate is bold and ambitious. The only thing that they have in common is a spikey black pelt marking on their flank.
Little do they know that the marking has not only singled them out to die but connected them in many unexpected ways. With danger at every turn and both young meer struggling to find their place will they survive their fate? Or will destiny claim the lives of The Marked?
