The moon shone brightly in the sky, giving off beams of silvery light. A light silver tabby leaned into the shoulder of her mate, purrs racking her body. “I have something very special to tell you, my love,” she meowed, glancing at her slightly swollen stomach. She hesitated for a moment, before plunging right in. “Blizzardpeak, I’m expecting your kits.”
“That’s wonderful, Silvermist!” the off-white tom exclaimed, nuzzling his mate’s cheek. “Our kits will be perfect, beautiful and clever like you, strong and handsome like me...” Blizzardpeak puffed out his chest. “I can’t believe I’m going to be a father! Ever since Oakshade and Nightfeather said I would never have kits, I always believed them.” He cracked a smile. “But it turns out they’re wrong. Oakshade and Nightfeather are the ones who don’t have kits.” Blizzardpeak chuckled softly, before raising his head to lap at Silvermist’s ears. The warm, strong rasps of his tongue moved quickly down the silver warrior’s back, cleaning her pelt thoroughly. “Do you know when the kits are due?”
“In about a moon,” Silvermist answered, her voice almost a murmur. She wrapped her tail around her paws and bent down to press her nose to her stomach. “Hear me, little kits? I am your mother, and with the power of a mother’s love, I will promise to love you, forever and always.” Her paws ached with such love that she thought she might burst with the deep feeling. With Blizzardpeak by her side, she felt as if she could handle anything, and that was how she felt about her kitting, only moments of heartwarming love.
Catherine Kopf: Wow! This was a really great story. I really enjoy reading fantasy, so it didn't take long for me to become invested in the book and its characters like Jacob. I really liked your writing style, and it seemed to flow very well. The descriptions that you used for your world were also created n...
Tavis Ryan King: "What Happened to Charlie Carmine" is a fabulous mo-gee-toe cocktail fuelled midget orgy of psychology, fantasy and sarcasm. I laughed out loud when reading this novel so many times it made the London commuters I shared space with look at me with curious disdain - and I did not care.The protagoni...
nikole carr: After starting and stopping several books tonight, this book caught my attention from the very beginning and i stayed up until 6 a.m. to finish reading. The plot has many twists and the sexual scenes keep it interesting, too. im a florida native so the Caribbean location is fun to read about. th...
Samantha Speed: There were several punctuation, grammar, and missing word problems but it did not detract from the story. This story was very well done, enjoyable, and had an interesting enough plot. It took a while to finish. This story is not complete. I love it, but I want to see another book or have more cha...
Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.
amarin8388: Bottom Line: I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Science Fiction. During my reading, I thought many times that this would make a good story for a movie. It reminded me of the StarWars movie franchise, not because of the plot but because of the diversity of chara...
ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...
Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...
