Today’s The Stack is sponsored by Caracal, the middle grade imprint of Lion Forge.
When the Hamster Aquatic Mercenaries (H.A.M.) are hired to save their badger allies from flooding, the colony’s most ambitious young hamster pups compete for their chance to join the team and earn glory and prestige. Those who succeed, however, soon discover that life outside their burrow is not the grand adventure they imagined, but instead find a world of deadly threats and conflicting stories about their species’ origins. The Underfoot Vol. 1: The Mighty Deep by Emily S. Whitten, Ben Fisher, and Michelle Nguyen is in stores now from the Caracal imprint of Lion Forge!
