I read this book around 2012-2015 (but it seemed older)
Dont remember if it was on kindle or paper copy
there was a lot of Complicated stuff going on across different planets. The key thing I remember was these beings that could communicate with each other through their minds (Telepath?) If one became separated from their pack, they had to rapidly find their way into another pack or they would die. There was some stuff about a boat, and castles/fortresses. A spaceship crashed on this planet, the parents died amd two kids survived. They became separated and one was cared for by these beings And accepted into a pack. some of the chapters were from the point of view of one for the rat-like creatures the size of a small dog…
There was also a way that the creatures could live on through the integrity of their pack. And some stuff to do with inbreeding weakening the elders…

Hi, @Pennypixie! You'll be even happier - it's the first book of a trilogy! :)
(I love A Fire..., but have yet to read the other two books.) Welcome to the site, CC


edit - oh, darn. I see Suzecog already mentioned the third book. :)
