Waiting on Wednesday: Ivory and Bone (Ivory and Bone #1) by Julie Eshbaugh10:00
This week's pick is:
Series: Ivory and Bone #1
Author: Julie Eshbaugh
Published June 7th 2016 by HarperTeen
A prehistoric fantasy—with allusions to Pride and Prejudice.
Hunting, gathering, and keeping his family safe—that’s the life seventeen-year-old Kol knows. Then bold, enigmatic Mya arrives from the south with her family, and Kol is captivated. He wants her to like and trust him, but any hopes of impressing her are ruined when he makes a careless—and nearly grave—mistake. However, there’s something more to Mya’s cool disdain…a history wrought with loss that comes to light when another clan arrives. With them is Lo, an enemy from Mya’s past who Mya swears has ulterior motives.
As Kol gets to know Lo, tensions between Mya and Lo escalate until violence erupts. Faced with shattering losses, Kol is forced to question every person he’s trusted. One thing is for sure: this was a war that Mya or Lo—Kol doesn’t know which—had been planning all along.
Why I'm waiting:
- Any book that mentions Pride and Prejudice in its synopsis is bound to catch my attention, and this one certainly did. I haven't read any prehistoric fiction, but have always wanted too, and I think Ivory and Bone would be perfect to start with.
- My library has ordered the e-book of this for me, and I'm first in the list so I'll be reading it as soon as it's available. :)
